Scrapbooking Layout – Mr Potato dream

Hi all!

Here’s a layout that I created on Monday for this week’s challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week’s letter is F, and F is for Food! I saw this photo of my son from when he was obsessed with his Mr Potato Head and I thought it was perfect for the challenge! I hadn’t put any of my stuff away from the crop yet, so I managed to get the layout done downstairs whilst the kids were happy playing with themselves. Let me tell you, this does not happen often at all!

I also took the opportunity to enter this layout in a mini challenge over at the Lottie Loves Paper facebook group. The challenge was to use a recipe: just one photo, at least four pattern papers, stitching of some sort, something turquoise, stamping, bling and enamel.

Here is my layout:

The papers are all from previous Lottie Loves Paper kits, and the word dream and the butterfly are from Shimelle’s starshine collection. It is a very simple layout, but I actually love the simplicity of it. It is funny how I either go for very simple or very busy layouts! Very rarely the middle point 🙂

Here’s a close up of the stitching, as it can hardly be noticed in the main image!

You have probably seen me use this combination of papers before, and that’s because I looooooove them! Haha 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed this layout and read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Well fed dolls

Hello friends!

Today I am on the All Day Crop in Bracknell, so I expect I will be creating quite a few layouts to show you next week! However, before that, I want to show you the layout that I created for the new weekly ABC challenge on For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week the letter is F and F is for Food!

This is the perfect opportunity to use all those food embellishments that I very rarely use, like pineapples, cupcakes, strawberries, etc.

And here is my first layout!

I used a mixed of brands on this layout. The spotty paper is Echo Park Paper, the navy blue is Dear Lizzy, the embellishments are Simple Stories “posh” and the alphas are Hazel Thickers and Freckled Fawn. I love mixing up collections!

And a close up of the photo. Such a cute photo of the twins feeding “their babies” 🙂

Scrapbooking Layout – Summer time and the living is easy

Hello friends!

Today I bring you another layout that I have made for this week’s challenge of “T is for Tags” over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. This is my third (and last, I think!) layout 🙂

I also took the time to make a process video, so you can watch it here:

And if you don’t want to watch, that’s ok. Here are a few photos:

I used May’s Lottie Loves Paper kit, and although it was very very hot whilst creating it, I loved making it! Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I’ll see 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:
