Scrapping4fun – Bounce

Hello friends!

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:

UK Scrap Addicts Blog Hop – Fun at Wellington

Hello everyone!

Today’s layout is for the UK Scrap Addicts blog hop, where the challenge was to use scraps and scraps only! So it was the perfect opportunity for me to take out my Simple Stories “I AM” scraps out!

Here is my layout:

I have been pretty mojo-less in the last few days, so I used a layout that was shared on For the Love of Pretty Paper for our Zig Zag challenge. It is a beautiful layout and I hope I’ve done it justice! After looking for the creator of the layout for quite a while, I finally found the original on the Crate Paper blog and the designer was Anabelle O’Malley

Scrapbook layout – 3 cheeky monkeys

Hello friends!

For today’s layout I wanted to use scraps and that is absolutely what I’ve done! Not a single full piece of paper was cut to create this layout!

The four stripes of paper surrounding the turquoise cardstock are the only leftovers, proper scraps!!, from the layout I made the other day for the Silhouette UK blog. The turquoise cardstock and background stripey paper are also scraps! For the embellishments, I took a half-used pack of “snip-its” by Cocoa Vanilla Studio, form the Colour Me Happy collection.
