Scrapbooking Layout – Good Day

Hello everyone! Today is Friday which means a new letter for the ABC challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week’s letter is W and it stands for Wood! However, today’s layout is using last week’s letter which was D, D for Diagonal. I have just been super busy this week and I didn’t get a chance to update the blog!

So for my Diagonal layout I went for this gorgeous pattern paper as a background, because it also has lots of little diagonals on it too and I thought it suited the theme quite well!. The paper is from the Oasis collection and I think I may have to buy another sheet as I love it so much. I also added all my embellishments on a diagonal line, from bottom left to top right.

And here it is!

Layout Lookback video on youtube

Hi all!

I am still in Spain, but I thought I would post a video that I uploaded to youtube the other day with all the layouts that I created in the month of June. I actually love making these videos every month or so, as it gives me another opportunity to look at them before I put them away in the albums!

Here is the video. I’ll be back soon, and already have some layouts planned for when I’m home!

PS: Youtube allows me to schedule videos and create custom thumbnails… Cool!! I was looking forward to that and it has finally happened!

Read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Pool Fun

Hello again friends!

Today I want to show you another layout that I created at the Scrap Cafe all day crop on Saturday last week. I actually made this layout for one of the challenges, but I read the instructions wrong and I couldn’t enter it (the challenge was to use scraps – which I did – but the instructions said that the scraps couldn’t be more than 4cms wide and I misread that for inches, and I made my triangles 3 inches wide…)

I am still very very happy with the finished layout, though, so I am not sad at all that I couldn’t enter it in the challenge.

Here it is:

The papers I used were from scraps in my scraps box so I don’t really remember which collections they are from, sorry! The thickers and the embellishments are from Pink Paislee’s Fancy Free collection.

Here’s a close up:

I love love love this turquoise cardstock which I bought at the crop. I must buy more next time!

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

Scrapbook Layout – Just for Fun

Hello all!

As we say goodbye to the month of June, I thought I would share a layout that I made for June’s monthly challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. I set the challenge and it was a moodboard, but not a fancy one like the ones on Pinterest, but a very “homely” one! The moodboard was entirely made with objects from my home 🙂

This is the moodboard:

And this is my layout:

I think it is very easy to see where I got the inspiration from! I actually loved making such a mess with the white paint and I thought the photos really suited the layout.

I used embellishments from Simple Stories, and the “just for fun” is from a thickers pack that I painted over. They were originally pink, but I didn’t think that shade of pink suited the layout.

I hope you have enjoyed it and thanks for popping over!

Scrapbooking Layout – Mr Potato dream

Hi all!

Here’s a layout that I created on Monday for this week’s challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week’s letter is F, and F is for Food! I saw this photo of my son from when he was obsessed with his Mr Potato Head and I thought it was perfect for the challenge! I hadn’t put any of my stuff away from the crop yet, so I managed to get the layout done downstairs whilst the kids were happy playing with themselves. Let me tell you, this does not happen often at all!

I also took the opportunity to enter this layout in a mini challenge over at the Lottie Loves Paper facebook group. The challenge was to use a recipe: just one photo, at least four pattern papers, stitching of some sort, something turquoise, stamping, bling and enamel.

Here is my layout:

The papers are all from previous Lottie Loves Paper kits, and the word dream and the butterfly are from Shimelle’s starshine collection. It is a very simple layout, but I actually love the simplicity of it. It is funny how I either go for very simple or very busy layouts! Very rarely the middle point 🙂

Here’s a close up of the stitching, as it can hardly be noticed in the main image!

You have probably seen me use this combination of papers before, and that’s because I looooooove them! Haha 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed this layout and read you soon!
