Well, both this blog and my YouTube channel are one year old! I have no idea where time has gone, but here we are, we year on and still loving blogging and making videos!
To celebrate the first anniversary, I asked the girls on For the Love of Pretty Paper to come up with questions and here it is! I hope the video is not too long and that you enjoy it!
Thanks for visiting!
This is a very small Throw Back Thursday, since the layout is only two weeks old! But I completely forgot to blog about it when I finished it, so here it finally is!
I started this page ages ago, in May… I applied gesso to the patterned paper background and then smeared some gold paint. Unfortunately, I hated the final result. Some people said to not give up and keep adding layers of mixed media. And that’s what I did. I wanted to make a layout about my dad, and because of the content of the letter, I knew I wanted the layout to be messy… hence I rescued the page.
So I added lots of ink sprays, modelling paste, more paint, splatters, stamping… And now I actually love how it’s turned out!
Here it is:
I know this is not my usual style, but I love getting messy with mixed media from time to time!
Here’s another close up:
On Friday we chose a new letter for the weekly ABC challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper, and the new letter is N, and N is for numbers! This week we are asking members of the group to introduce numbers into their layouts, in any way they want! They can refer to a date, age, just random numbers as embellishments… anything!
So for my layout I decided to do a Top Ten of my favourite albums for my Book of Me (I will also be doing a Top Ten favourite films and another about TV shows at some point), and I must say that I love how the layout turned out! Here it is:
I picked a selection of pattern papers from some 6×6 pads and cut two stars with each pattern, one big and one small. I sued glittery thickers for my numbers and I also used other thickers for part of my title. I also stamped on my title, however, I think I am going to cover up the “of all time” with little alpha stickers as I am not too keen on how those little stamps look.
And here’s a close up:

Today’s layout was done for UK Scrap Addict’s Grab 5 challenge. To celebrate that we reached 500 followers on Instagram, we asked our followers to suggest items to do a Grab 5. And these are items:
- Pattern paper for background
- Embossing powder
- Half used sticker sheet
- Large title
- Number stickers or die cuts
And it was a bit of a challenge! Especially introducing embossing powder! It’s one of the most neglected items on my stash!
Here’s my layout:
And there’s a process video too! Come and watch!

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:
Read you very soon!
