Scrapbooking Layout – We can help you paint

Hi all!

This is a layout that has been in the making for quite a while! I originally cut the hearts on my Silhouette to create the Hello Scooter layout. But I knew that I would be able to use the negative space as well, so when I was designing it, I placed the hearts carefully and also added the stitching lines outside the hearts.

Then, a couple of weekends ago, I did the stitching whilst I was at the Scrap Cafe crop in Reading (this has just reminded me that I haven’t shared the other two layouts that I created that day, so I will make a new blog post about those tomorrow).

And finally, I finished the rest of the layout on Saturday! So, yeah, a long time coming!

Here it is:

This was a fun layout to make, and I loved going through my stash to get all my yellow and green embellishments.
I hope you have liked it, and read you very soon!

Hi all!

I’ve made a video for the “Scrappy Tag 2017” although nobody tagged me! I’m Billy no mates 😀

Here are the 15 questions, and below is the video:

1) What is one scrapbook item you do NOT own, that surprises you?
2) If you were designing your own line, what 3 elements would be REQUIRED?
3) What ONE item is a must for you to finish a layout?
4) Most used social media influence, besides YouTube?
5) Who is your Dream collaborator?
6) If money was no object, what would your first purchase be?
7) What do you have the most of in your stash?
8) Favourite item in your stash?
9) Most used item?
10) Where do you do your crafting?
11) Is there a layout or project you have been procrastinating on?
12) When you finish a layout does it go straight away or into a pile?
13) Scrappy Crush. Who would make you grin or just be so excited it they liked or commented on your project?
14) Favourite places to shop?
15) Dream job in the industry?

Scrapbooking Layout – Canterbury 1996 (youtube video)

Hi friends!

The other day I made this layout for one of this month’s sketch challenges over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. I was really drawn to the sketch I chose because of the use of multiple photos.

Here is my layout and the sketch:

Scrapbooking Layout – Breeding Lice

Hello once again!

Today I bring you the last installment of my Chinese Whispers game!

For this set, my layout was the last in the series, and this series is the one where each layout is almost unrecognisable from the previous one and no resemblance to the original sketch!

Here is the sketch:

First take on the sketch by Michelle:

Who then passed it on to Lis:

Who then passed it to Helen:

And finally, my take on Helen’s layout:

This layout was hilarious to make, and a couple of people have commented on scrapbooking something so gross. But, hey, why not? Why scrapbook about first steps, first words, first everythings… So first lice infestation too! 😀

Thanks for joining me today and read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Pebble Fun

Hi all!

Today I bring you another Chinese Whispers set of layouts! I was second in this sequence, and there is no sketch as far as I know (I’m sure there was one, it’s just that I haven’t seen it)

Here they go:

First one by Helen:

Which I scraplifted:

I then passed it on to Michelle

And last but not least, Lis:

I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Endless Summer collection for my layout, and at the beginning I wasn’t keen on cutting the photos into circles, but I am actually in love with how this layout turned out so I won’t complain! One more close up:
