National Scrapbooking Day Round Up 1

Hello everyone!

I really hope you have had an amazing NSD and that you have been inspired to get your stash out and work on some pages!

I was very lucky to play along on Friday night and most of the day on Saturday. My own personal challenge for NSD is to complete all the challenges posted on For the Love of Pretty Paper, and so far I am doing great, however I still have six to do!

Here are the first 11 (yes, ELEVEN!)

Challenge 1: Make a layout with a “Spring” or “Summer” theme. Use a photo taken in the Spring or Summer. Your title could include the word Spring or Summer.

Life's a beach

Challenge 2: Video Scraplift. Claire Murphy, Jess Claire and I created a scrapbooking process video and the idea was to watch the videos and choose one to scraplift. I chose to scraplift Jess’s, in Project Life format. Below are my original layout for the video and Jess’s scraplift.

Evening walks

Challenge 3: Use the single page sketch and double page sketch from UK Scrap Addicts:

Bloom

Now and then

Challenge 4: UK Scrap Addicts cut files. There were several to choose from, and I chose the Mandala one. I didn’t cut it, though, just printed it and watercoloured it.

Follow your dreams

Challenge 5: Tic Tac Toe challenge. I created a tic tac toe grid with several techniques to use. I created two layouts, one as a sample for the challenge and one I created during the actual challenge! Here’s both.

Embarrassing moment

Laugh

Challenge 6: Songs and Films. Use a Song title, song lyrics  or Film Title or scrap about music/TV or films in some way! I went with the animated film The Gruffalo 🙂

We're going on a gruffalo hunt

Challenge 7: Video Scraplift. The same as challenge 2 but with videos from Sarah Roulston, Laura Rumble and Scrapbook Bex. I chose to scraplift Scrapbook Bex, although I still want to do the other two!

Easter Break

Challenge 8: Use a Big or Long Title or Lots of Journalling. I went for long journalling on a scraplifted page from Victoria Marie.

Tommy

Challenge 9: Scraplift your very first layout (or one of the first you ever made!)

My tribe

And this is it for now! I will come back at some point next week when I have finished all the remainder layouts!

Thanks for popping by!

Scrapbooking Layout – Life’s a beach

Hello everyone!

I hope you are enjoying this fantastic National Scrapbooking Day (aka = weekend!!) I have started early with a superb challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. The challenge is to scrapbook about Spring or Summer, and I just happened to have the best embellishments ever from my latest Lottie Loves Paper kit! I have used the May Stuck? Sketches! sketch so I will be entering my layout there too 🙂

And here it is!

Life's a beach

5 May 1 2017 - Stuck Sketches (600x600)

I painted the background with a bit of white acrylic paint to soften it a bit, and I actually love how it’s turned out. I also added some white and yellow splatters. The papers are from a very old Echo Park Paper collection called Spash. And the embellishments are from my Lottie Loves Paper kit, which is super fun and summery!

I hope you have liked it, and thanks for popping over!

YouTube video for NSD – Fun Summer Days

Hello everyone and welcome to National Scrapbooking Day!

I really hope you are enjoying all the challenges so far on For the Love of Pretty Paper! For this challenge, I am creating a layout for you to scraplift. A winner from all the entries will be chosen and be given a prize!

So for my layout today I have used the Endless Summer collection exclusively. If you follow me regularly, you will know that it is rare for me to just use one collection and not go through all my stash! But I wanted it to keep it really simple with this layout!

Here are a couple of photos and my YouTube process video! Please come over and say hello!

I really hope you will play along and choose my layout to scraplift! Happy scrapping!

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!

Birthday cards

Hello!

Today I bring you two birthday cards! A long time ago I was an avid cardmaker, but when I discovered scrapbooking, cards took a hit and got a tad forgotten. I still make cards for very special people, however not as often as I used to. However, my kids have been invited to lots of birthday parties next month, so I thought that with a bit of planning I could make a few of them.

For these two cards, I have followed a sketch from Stick it Down blog. In the past I have taken inspiration from other cards on Pinterest or in the Stampin Up catalogue, but I don’t think I ever followed a sketch before! So definitely this was a first!

These are today’s cards and the sketch they were based on:

Happy birthday - 4

Happy birhtday

I hope you have liked these cards. There may be a couple more in a few days!

Read you soon! x
