This is another layout that I made for the retreat last weekend. I entered it on a challenge that was about regrets, so I decided to go on a little tangent and capture the story of how I got my last job. It is a very personal story, however I didn’t have a problem with other people reading about it and that’s why I left the journalling showing. My layout is heavily inspired by this one I found on Pinterest.
And here it is!
And a couple pf close ups:
Those alphas are so gorgeous!
The papers are from Felicity Jane and Crate Paper “Carousel”. The leaves I die cut at the retreat and the flower embellishments are from 1canoe2.
Thanks for visiting! Read you very soon!
Today’s layout is about my kids’ best friend from nursery. Unfortunately they don’t go to the same school now so chances that we get to see him again are quite slim, so I thought that it would be nice to have a layout about him in the kids album. And here it is:
I am so happy with how it turned out! It is a scraplift of a layout I found on Pinterest (although I am struggling to find it again! All I can remember is that it came from Fancy Pants), and I loved being able to add some machine stitching at the end.
Come back again tomorrow for another layout created at the retreat!
I attended to Scrap Cafe retreat at the weekend and I had a great time! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to stay overnight in the hotel, which means my scrappy time was slightly reduced. But I still managed 9 layouts, which I am quite happy about (my personal target was 10, but I lost my mojo at the end).
This layout here is one of the last ones I made and one of my most favourite. On Saturday night my scrappy friends Claire and Zoe, and I had a takeaway pizza for dinner. I took the photo and went home and posted it on facebook. Zoe saw it and said “you need to print this and scrap it for the social media challenge!”. So what I did was print three copies, one for each one of us, and all three of us scrapped the same photo! The results were so different too!
Here is my take:
And this is the magic of retreats, this layout was put together thanks to the generosity of my friends! Someone lent me the spatula to apply the paste, somebody else lent me the Heidi Shine Sprays, and someone else gave me the Emoji Love card and lent me the smiley face stamp. Team work!!

Today I am super excited to show you my very first layout as a Design Team Member of Stuck?! Sketches <3 I have been a fan of this blog since I started scrapping on 12×12, so it was such a great honour to be chosen to be part of the team!!
And here is my first layout!
And this is the sketch that my layout was inspired on:
This month we have two sponsors with lovely prizes to be won!
Here are a couple more close ups of my layout:
I hope you have enjoyed this layout and thanks for visiting today!
Here is another layout I have made for the Scrapping4fun Design Team! This month’s challenge was to use a sketch… and I love sketches! The real challenge for me was the fact that the sample sketch that we were given was for a double page layout and I don’t really do double page layouts! So I had to use my imagination and “translate” the sketch into a single page layout. I think I did quite well! I’ll let you be the judge. Here’s my layout and the sketch!
So, what do you think? As I wanted to use so many photos in such a “small” space, I really had to go minimal so as to not overload the layout. That’s why I kept the pattern papers away, pretty much, and stuck to solid colours.
And a couple of close ups:
Thanks for popping by and read you very – very – soon!
