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!

Cyber Krop – Part 2

Hello all!

These are the other layouts that I made for the challenges for the Cyber Krop:

Challenge 5: Counting Sheep – something to do with dreams or nightmares, or someone sleeping.

A dream come true

Challenge 1a – Go Horizontal. The design in your layout has to go all the way from left to right.

Rocky is the best

Challenge 2a – Round and Round. The layout must feature circles and can only have red/yellow/blue (or a combination of) colours.

That twinkle in your eye

Challenge 3a – Ebony and Ivory. You can only use black and white in your layout and some mixed media (I actually forgot about the mixed media, doh!) You also have to include “empowered, proud and/or strong” (which I included in the journalling – I wish I had planned the journalling a bit better as it could have looked quite awesome)

The Loft

And that is it for me! I left two challenges undone as I felt quite drained by the end of it, it was a very exhausting and demanding weekend! Not sure I could do this all over again any time soon. I need a crafty break!

Thanks for popping by and read you soon!

Cyber Krop

Hello everyone!

So yesterday afternoon/evening I got to participate in an online crop. It was like doing NSD all over again! It was actually great fun, because it was done with a very small group of people (I would say there were about 15 of us participating yesterday) so it felt cozy and very personal. The Cyber Krop was hosted by Katie and Julie, who run the Inspired by Memories group on Facebook.

There were 5 challenges yesterday but I only managed to make 4, which is amazing due to time constrictions and having the kids in the house in the afternoon, and then having to have dinner, and put them to bed and all of that! I did something that I hadn’t done in a very long time and scrapped well into the night! I went to bed at almost 1am!!!

So here are the challenges and my layouts:

Challenge 1: Make a layout inspired by the sketch below, with one rule: Ripped paper! (I don’t “do” ripped paper, so I kept it to a minimum)

You lift my heart up

Challenge 2: Theme is The Outdoors, and the layout must include 3 embelishment clusters, Layers, A hand cut title, buttons
and enamel dots and/or bling.

Explore

Challenge 3: Theme is “Let’s Eat”

Thai red fish curry

Challenge 4: Choose a title from these 3 words: Grow, change or thrilled. Use at least 3 of these mixed media techniques: stitching, gelatos, watercolours, mists, inks, enamel (and a few more that I can’t remember right now)

So thrilled

I didn’t get to even start thinking about challenge 5, and there will be a few more this afternoon, so we’ll see how many I get done in the end!

NSD Scrapbooking Layout – Follow your dreams

Hello friends!

I really hope you are playing along all the challenges over at For the Love of Pretty Paper and UK Scrap Addicts for this amazing weekend of NSD. I am having a blast!

For my first layout today, I am using a FREE cut file from UK Scrap Addicts. You can get it here.

However, despite having an electronic cutting machine, I wanted to use the cut file in a different way. So I printed in in 12×12 cardstock (I am lucky enough to have an A3 printer to do this) and I coloured it with my watercolours. The result is messy and totally not perfect, but that was my plan anyway. My layout takes inspiration from the Mandala, which can be interpreted like a dream for completeness and happiness. And I dream about this completeness and happiness, so this is what my layout is about.

Follow your dreams

I really hope you like it and it has inspired you to create your own!

See you very soon!
