Scrapbooking Layout – Wells

Hello lovely likers!

Today I bring you a brand new layout about my recent day trip to Wells. Wells is England’s smallest city, and it is only considered a city because of the Cathedral! It is otherwise a very small town 🙂

I originally printed these photos to make a double page layout, but after playing a bit with the sketch that I wanted to follow, I changed my mind and started from scratch with this single page. I have kept it very simple, as I didn’t want to take any attention away from the photos. I have used Simple Stories “Heart” collection for the papers and there are only a couple of other elements which are also Simple Stories. The big title letters are from Pink Paislee “C’est la vie”. As the title has turned out quite big, I will be entering this layout on the April challege on In The Scrap.

And here is my layout and a few closeups:

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

Scrapbook Layout – Current Obsession

Hello all!

Today I bring you a brand new mixed media layout which is going on my Book of Me album, and it is all about my current obsession: Twenty One Pilots.

I know the band has been around for years, but I only discovered them at the beginning of 2017. My husband started playing their latest album in the car and although the style is not 100% my taste, I found them really catchy and suddenly fell in love with their music! I say that the style is not entirely my taste, because they have lots of elements of dance music (or “chunda-chunda” as I call it) which I am not keen on. However, the lyrics and more importantly the tunes are amazing, and I absolutely love the singer’s voice.

So this layout is really simple. In microsoft word, I pasted the lyrics to some of my favourite songs from their two latest albums, and send it to print! I have used 280gsm card, as I knew I wanted to do some mixed media and there is a bit of warping, but not too much, so I am quite happy. There is no journalling in this layout, as I think it speaks for itself.

Anyway, here are a couple of photos and a process video! I hope you enjoy it:

Youtube video – Layout look back

Hello lovely likers!

I am about to put all my completed projects into page protectors and albums, so I thought it would be a good idea to film one of those flip throughs or lookbacks or whatever they are called. Unfortunately when I started doing the video voiceover, my throat was really sore and I kept coughing. I hope people are not too putt off by this!

Anyway, here it is and I hope you enjoy it!

Read you soon,

Scrapbook Layout – Heladeria Tropical

Hello all and welcome once more to my blog!

A few days ago, the very talented Shimelle posted a layout about her first job. I loved reading her story and it totally inspired me to create a layout about my first job too.

The story behind my first job is very long, as it wasn’t just a job, it was the family business. So I go on for quite a bit with the journalling on this layout! I had to even write at the back and even then I don’t think I told all the story! I have a feeling I may have to find another photo and create another layout to compliment this one.

For this page I used mainly papers and embellishments from My Mind’s Eye “Palm Beach” collection. I bought these with the idea of scrapbooking a few photos of my honeymoon in Hawaii, however the palm trees and colours suited perfectly with the theme of this layout so I didn’t hesitate to use them. I can always buy more if I find I need them for my honeymoon layouts.

As you would have imagined, this layout will be going to the Book of Me, which is coming along quite nicely! Just the other day I was going through all my childhood photos and I have so many to scrap! 🙂

A couple more closeups. Those gold palm trees are so gorgeous! I love them!!

Hello everyone!

Apologies for not posting anything in the last few days. I have actually been working hard on several projects all at once, but they are for the Silhouette Design Team so I can’t show you much at the moment!

I can, however, show you a little sneak peek of a few layouts that I have already finished but need to be kept secret for now! Shhhh…. Don’t tell anyone!
