Today I bring you a layout that I have created for the March challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. The challenge was to use acetate in a creative way so I decided to use mine as part of the background!
I bought this piece of acetate and the cat papers at the Hey Little Magpie pop-up shop at the Birds of a Feather workshop last weekend and I knew exactly what I wanted to do the moment I saw them! The layout is inspired on a Manxy Cat Crafts (Sarah Costain) layout, and I can tell you already that I will not be doing that ruffled ribbon technique any time soon! That was hard!
The cat papers are from My Mind’s Eye “Meow” collection and the acetate is from Teresa Collins Signature Essentials. The ribbon I went to Hobbycraft especially for. I have several types of pink ribbon at home but neither were wide enough, but Hobbycraft had just what I needed. The right width and also with grey polka dots! Perfect! The flair came with a Lottie Loves Paper kit a few months ago, and I can’t right remember which collection it is from… I am thinking Cocoa Vanilla Studios, but not 100% sure. There are some “fake sequins”, which are Pinkfresh Studio “Felicity” and a few black enamel dots. The “sunshine” in the title is from Maggie Holmes and the alphas are from Simple Stories.
Very simple layout as you can see, but I love how effective it is! And also, as you could have probably imagined by now, quite difficult to photograph since the background is transparent!
Here we go:

Hello lovely scrappers!
Today I bring you layout #3 for Lottie Loves Paper.
Have I mentioned before how amazing this kit is? Well, in case you haven’t heard me say it before… it is! The lovely Sarah is also opening subscriber spaces from April onwards, so if you are thinking of subscribing, now is the moment! Go to the website and look for Monthly Kits.
So, my layout today is inspired on one of the layouts that I did at the Paige Evans workshop. For her class I chose the star die cut, however there was an option of a heart in the same style. When I sat down to create this layout, I wanted to have hearts and this cut file from the Silhouette store was just what I wanted.
I used the papers from the kit for backing my hearts. They are a mixture of Dear Lizzy Lovely Day and Pink Paislee Oh my Heart. The embellishments, both normal stickers and chipboard, are also from Dear Lizzy Lovely Day. There are also a few enamel dots that came with the kit. I want to say they are from Pinkfresh Studio, but I am not 100%. The black cardstock background also came with the kit, however I decided to spray a bit with white Heidi Swapp Color Shine from my stash. I think it breaks the “blackness” a bit and makes the background blend a bit softer with the heart die cut.
And here it is!
And a few close ups:
Today I bring you my first ever layout as a Guest Designer for Lottie Loves Paper.
Lottie Loves Paper is a British scrapbooking shop that offers monthly embellishment kits with add ons. The fact that the main kit is embellishments is a very big advantage for a lot of us scrapbookers who seem to have too much paper but never enough embellishments! I have been subscribing since they started offering kits last year.
I am so chuffed to have been chosen as a Guest Designer for the month of February. It is an honour! And the kit this month is so gorgeous that it makes it even better. It features items from current collections like Dream on by Pinkfresh Studio, Lovely Day by Dear Lizzy and a bit of Pink Paislee too.
This is my first layout for the kit, I hope you like it:
It was my 39th birthday yesterday! And what a better way to celebrate than creating a scrapbook page! This layout will be going in the Book of Me.
All the items in this page are from the kit, except from the black and white thread in the tags, the date stamp and the ink splatters are from my stash.
I hope you have liked this layout and hopefully I’ll read you soon!
Hello! For today’s Throw Back Thursday I bring you a layout that I made last month. I have only recently finished doing the stitching though! This is my first double layout on 12×12 ever! And I am so happy with how it’s turned out!
I am still using up the remaining bits and pieces from the Take Me Away kit that I got at the Paige Evans workshop. I remember thinking that the price of the workshop was quite high, but I’ve had so many bits leftover that it’s been totally worth it!
This double layout is for my Book of Me scrapbook and it is all about the places where I have lived and that I have got to call “home”. The paper with the map of Europe was just perfect and the moment I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The paper with the houses was also perfect to fill up the background on the other page. I added a tiny bit of watercolour underneath the photos, but only a tiny bit to give it a bit of interest but without taking focus off the images.
I hope you have liked this layout and read you soon!
Hello! This is the fourth layout that I created at the crop on Saturday. Despite having decided that I need to create more layouts of my daughter, I ended up creating two of my son and only one of my daughter! Next time I need to take just photos of Elisa so I avoid the temptation!
This is a very simple layout but I love how effective it is. I sprayed the background with some ink sprays (two Heidi Shines and one Tim Holtz, which is not as shiny as Heidi’s) and then used some Simple Stories’ DIY Boutique collection papers for a monochromatic feel. I added a few enamel shapes from the new Pinkfresh Studio No. 1 Mix, which are awesome!
Thanks for looking and read you soon!
