Scrapbook layout – Such a happy girl (youtube video)

Hi all!

Today’s layout has been made for the new letter prompt on For the Love of Pretty Paper’s ABC challenge. This week the letter is S and S is for Squares! We want people to feature squares on their layouts. Be it small squares or large ones, one or many… Up to you!

I have created quite a few “squarey” layouts lately, so today I wanted to make something a bit different and I decided to create just one big square as the main focus of the layout. I have used Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Wild at heart” collection, which is so gorgeous!

Here’s my layout and video! I hope you’ll watch!

Layout Lookback video on YouTube (July 2017)

Hi all!

It is not quite the end of the month, but I know I am not going to be making much more before August arrives, so I thought I would get my Layout Lookback video done today 🙂 July wasn’t as busy as May (I don’t think I’ll get another busy month like that again!) but I still managed quite a few layouts.

Here they all are:

Scrapbooking Layout – The Warmth

Hello everyone!

This layout was not an easy one. First of all, I knew I wanted to scrap those lyrics (they are from “The Warmth”, my favourite Incubus song) but I didn’t know how. Many different ideas came to my head: use thinkers and stickers, just print the lyrics in the background (like I did with my 21 pilots layout) or whether to use a photo or not! I eventually settled with cutting the words on my Silhouette (and this came with several designs and fonts too!). Once cut, I had no idea what to do with it either! At some point during my design process I thought of using thickers in a rainbow style (idea went to poop when I realised that I didn’t have thickers in all the colours of the rainbow!) but the idea of the rainbow stayed and that’s how I decided to back my letters.

And here it is!

Since the mahoosive title and the photo were taking all of the space, I decided to write around the border. I thought it would be better to design it in Word and then print it rather than attempt to hand-write it.

I have made this layout to enter it in TWO challenges. One is for For the Love of Pretty Paper, ABC challenges. This coming week is G is for Gold, so I added the gold glitter washi tape and the gold hearts in the centre of the O’s. The other challenge is for a Page called Create me Scrappy Happy (a page about using scrapbooking for bettering your mental health) and the challenge was to use lyrics or a song title.

Thanks for popping by today and read you very soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Good Day

Hello everyone! Today is Friday which means a new letter for the ABC challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week’s letter is W and it stands for Wood! However, today’s layout is using last week’s letter which was D, D for Diagonal. I have just been super busy this week and I didn’t get a chance to update the blog!

So for my Diagonal layout I went for this gorgeous pattern paper as a background, because it also has lots of little diagonals on it too and I thought it suited the theme quite well!. The paper is from the Oasis collection and I think I may have to buy another sheet as I love it so much. I also added all my embellishments on a diagonal line, from bottom left to top right.

And here it is!

Scrapbooking Layout – Wild and Free

Hello friends!

Here’s another layout from the all day crop last week. This actually started as a scraplift of a Bea Valint layout but it took a bit of a life of its own and they don’t really look like each other much. But that’s ok! I took her layout as a starting point, rather than lifting it completely.

And here it is:

The papers are from the Dear Lizzy Collection “Saturday” and I chose them because of the apples and pears pattern paper, because it meant that the layout could also be part of the F is for Food challenge (although I never entered it last week)

I bought a few craft cardstock sheets at the crop and absolutely love the look and feel of them!

Here’s a close up:

The texture paste I borrowed from my friend Claire and it was very interesting! It wasn’t paste per se, but more like a mousse and it was fun to use! She bought a set of four from either Aldi or Lidl for just £5. That’s a bargain!

I hope you have liked this layout and see you again soon!
