Scrapbooking layout – You are my sunshine

Hello everyone!

Today I bring you a layout that I have created for the March challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. The challenge was to use acetate in a creative way so I decided to use mine as part of the background!

I bought this piece of acetate and the cat papers at the Hey Little Magpie pop-up shop at the Birds of a Feather workshop last weekend and I knew exactly what I wanted to do the moment I saw them! The layout is inspired on a Manxy Cat Crafts (Sarah Costain) layout, and I can tell you already that I will not be doing that ruffled ribbon technique any time soon! That was hard!

The cat papers are from My Mind’s Eye “Meow” collection and the acetate is from Teresa Collins Signature Essentials. The ribbon I went to Hobbycraft especially for. I have several types of pink ribbon at home but neither were wide enough, but Hobbycraft had just what I needed. The right width and also with grey polka dots! Perfect! The flair came with a Lottie Loves Paper kit a few months ago, and I can’t right remember which collection it is from… I am thinking Cocoa Vanilla Studios, but not 100% sure. There are some “fake sequins”, which are Pinkfresh Studio “Felicity” and a few black enamel dots. The “sunshine” in the title is from Maggie Holmes and the alphas are from Simple Stories.

Very simple layout as you can see, but I love how effective it is! And also, as you could have probably imagined by now, quite difficult to photograph since the background is transparent!

Here we go:

Scrapbooking Layout – It’s all about the ponytail

Hello all! I hope you’re having a good weekend so far!

Today I bring you a layout that I created earlier this week for the Sketchy Scrappers group on Facebook. Their mid-month challenge was to create a layout inspired on a Valentine’s card that one of the admins had received.

And this is my take on it! I took inspiration from the grid layout and the flowers in the card, and I used Paige Evans’ Take Me Away for the papers, thickers and embellishments. The other alphas came from my stash, I can’t remember which manufacturer right now.

Its all about the ponytail

As you can see, I also did a bit of white splatters; unfortunately they got a bit all over the place, but I am actually quite pleased with how the layout looks.

And a couple of closeups:
