Stuck Sketches – First Day of School

Hello everyone!

It’s the first of December, so time again for a new amazingly gorgeous sketch by Laura!

As it is December, I was very tempted to do a festive / Christmassy layout, however, I haven’t got any printed photos yet! So I had to work with something I already had, and I still have a few “First Day of School” photos to scrap, so that is what I went for! Here is my layout:

And here is the gorgeous sketch by Laura:

This month’s sponsors are Bramble Fox and Wycinanka 🙂

 

 

 

 

As you can see, the sketch calls for two photos, however I went for just one. It has been said many times before, but I will say it again: sketches are a starting point and can be interpreted! You don’t have to necessarily follow it to the T!

And here are a couple of close ups:

Scrapbook layout – 3 cheeky monkeys

Hello friends!

For today’s layout I wanted to use scraps and that is absolutely what I’ve done! Not a single full piece of paper was cut to create this layout!

The four stripes of paper surrounding the turquoise cardstock are the only leftovers, proper scraps!!, from the layout I made the other day for the Silhouette UK blog. The turquoise cardstock and background stripey paper are also scraps! For the embellishments, I took a half-used pack of “snip-its” by Cocoa Vanilla Studio, form the Colour Me Happy collection.

Scrapbook layout – Chole on the beach

Hi all!

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!

Scrapbook layout – Awesome tower

Hi all!

Today’s layout I created just on Monday for a mini challenge on the Mercy Tiara facebook group, with a Creative Scrappers sketch set by Moira 🙂

Here’s my layout and the sketch:

I used the You Rock collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I am very pleased to say that I still have enough papers and embellishments for at least 4 or 5 layouts more! <3

Here are two more closeups:
