Silhouette UK blog – Sketch and cut in software version 4

Hello everyone!

I am on the Silhouette UK blog today with a tutorial on how to use the sketch pens in the new Version 4 of the software. I only updraded to version 4 the day before yesterday, so it was interesting finding my way around in the new interface! Some features are more straightforward now, but others are harder to find! And yes, you guessed it right, sketching in different colours was one of those harder-to-find features!

Anyway, please join me on the blog for the step by step tutorial, and I hope it’s useful for you!

May 2017 Lookback – YouTube video

Hello friends! I thought my YouTube channel was looking very bare the other day, so I decided to make a lookback video with all the layouts that I created during the month of May. It was a very busy month and I created almost 40 layout!!! Say whaaaat!

So here it is! I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for visiting, and read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Cute as a button

Hello lovely likers!

The admin team over at For the Love of Pretty Paper have started a new weekly challenge on the facebook group. It is called the “ABC challenge” as every week we will choose a random letter of the alphabet and pick a technique or stash item starting with that letter, and we have to make a layout with it.

So today is the first day of this challenge and the random letter that we have chosen is B, and the stash item is Buttons! I happen to have lots, so it was easy for me to incorporate them on my layout.

My layout is a scraplift from this one that I had pinned on Pinterest, and I also made a point of using old collections for my papers. I used some scraps that I still had left from two Lime Twist / My mind’s eye collections (Fly a kite & out of the blue). I am a tiny bit sad to have now finished using those collections, as they are old and no longer in stock anywhere, and I loved them! So bright and gorgeous!

And without further ado, here’s my layout:

Scrapbooking Layout – Miss Purple Hands

Hello all!

Here’s another layout that I made last week for the Lottie Loves Paper mini challenge, based on a sketch by Shimelle. The sketch is perfect for lots of journalling so I thought it was time that I told the story of my love-hate relationship with my daughters love for the colour pink 🙂

Here’s my layout and the sketch it is based on:

I have used mostly Echo Park Paper “Creative Agenda” collection. The thickers are from the Take me Away collection by Pink Paislee.
