I attended to Scrap Cafe retreat at the weekend and I had a great time! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to stay overnight in the hotel, which means my scrappy time was slightly reduced. But I still managed 9 layouts, which I am quite happy about (my personal target was 10, but I lost my mojo at the end).
This layout here is one of the last ones I made and one of my most favourite. On Saturday night my scrappy friends Claire and Zoe, and I had a takeaway pizza for dinner. I took the photo and went home and posted it on facebook. Zoe saw it and said “you need to print this and scrap it for the social media challenge!”. So what I did was print three copies, one for each one of us, and all three of us scrapped the same photo! The results were so different too!
Here is my take:
And this is the magic of retreats, this layout was put together thanks to the generosity of my friends! Someone lent me the spatula to apply the paste, somebody else lent me the Heidi Shine Sprays, and someone else gave me the Emoji Love card and lent me the smiley face stamp. Team work!!

Thanks for visiting! Pop over tomorrow for another layout from the retreat!
Today I am super excited to show you my very first layout as a Design Team Member of Stuck?! Sketches <3 I have been a fan of this blog since I started scrapping on 12×12, so it was such a great honour to be chosen to be part of the team!!
And here is my first layout!
And this is the sketch that my layout was inspired on:
This month we have two sponsors with lovely prizes to be won!
Here are a couple more close ups of my layout:
I hope you have enjoyed this layout and thanks for visiting today!
Today layout I made for the Mercy Tiara 27 Day Scrapbook Challenge on Facebook. The challenge was to use the following:
- Autumn related layout
- 4 pattern papers
- Use a stamp
- Multiple photos
- Include journalling on the page
- Use die cuts
In addition to the required elements, I also included three extra items from Moira’s tic tac toe challenge, which were
- Add journalling on a tag
- Use thread or twine
- Make it leafy!
And here is my layout!
It may not seem like it, but there really are four pattern papers in there! Two in the main vertical line, and two more mounting the photo 🙂 A couple more close ups:
Thanks for visiting today, and read you very soon!
Today’s layout is inspired by the first fortnightly sketch over at Stuck?! Sketches. When I first saw it I said “this is perfect to use my 5kg box of scraps” and I did! I used my box of scraps! I’ve only made a little dent on it, it is still 4.999 kgs 😀
Because the photo I was scrapping was of a rainbow, I knew I had to make a rainbow of pattern papers 🙂 Here it is:
And here is the sketch!
As you can see in the sketch, under the strips of pattern paper, there are some splatters of mixed media. I wanted to keep my background quite white, so I sprayed with my White Heidi Shine and the result is quite subtle, but I love the shimmery effect. I am not sure how well it can be appreciated in the photo. I also used a bit with Tinsel Heidi Shine and a few black watercolour splatters. I should have waited until the ink sprays were dry before adding the watercolour splatters, as they run a bit…
For the embellishments, I used “Life is Beautiful” by Fancy Pants, and some buttons and sequins from my stash.
Thanks for visiting, and read you soon!
I’ve got a new scrapbook page today that I created for the ABC challenge on For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week the letter is V, and V is for vellum!
I had a look through my stash, as I was sure that I had some clear vellum (well, “clear” is not really the right word.. it’s a tiny bit opaque, but you know what I mean), but I couldn’t find it. So I went for the last piece of the super gorgeous printed vellum by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I took inspiration from this layout by Crafty Jen Schow that I found on Pinterest.
And here it is!
In case you are wondering, no.. Chole is not a spelling mistake.. there is a story behind the name, and I have a layout planned to tell that story soon!
I hope you liked this and thanks for looking!
