Scrapbooking Layout – Pebble Fun

Hi all!

Today I bring you another Chinese Whispers set of layouts! I was second in this sequence, and there is no sketch as far as I know (I’m sure there was one, it’s just that I haven’t seen it)

Here they go:

First one by Helen:

Which I scraplifted:

Pebble fun | crafts by marialachica | scrapbooking layout using Cocoa Vanilla Studio's Endless Summer Collection

I then passed it on to Michelle

And last but not least, Lis:

I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Endless Summer collection for my layout, and at the beginning I wasn’t keen on cutting the photos into circles, but I am actually in love with how this layout turned out so I won’t complain! One more close up:

Thanks for popping by and read you very soon!

Scrap Cafe crop – June 2017

Morning everyone!

Yesterday (yes, on a Sunday!) I attended the monthly Scrap Cafe crop in Bracknell. I had no idea that it was going to take place until Georgia messaged me asking if I was coming… after arranging things with hubby, I said yes!

I had a great time chatting about all things crafty with like minded people, I really needed that! I wasn’t the most productive though and only managed two layouts, however I am very happy with both of them! It was quite warm in the room and I wasn’t feeling great, but I was happy to just sit there and chat.

I also tried a new approach and packed very lightly compared to every other time! I only took five or six thickers packs, a third of my embellishments, and a few already made kits (lottie loves paper mainly). And I must say that it worked quite well! I think my process is changing slightly and now I am ok with just using one collections or kit (rather than going through all my stash for one layout)

And without further ado, here are yesterday’s creations!

Hello Nutella

The papers in this layout are Cocoa Vanilla Studio and Shimelle (the navy one). I love how these papers look together and I have already used them before in this layout.

Push!

This layout is 99% Cocoa Vanilla Studio “you rock” and it is a scraplift, but I am quite happy how it turned out 🙂

Scrapbooking Layout – You rock those flowers (youtube video)

Hello everyone!

I hope you’re having a good bank holiday weekend so far! Yesterday I got some scrappy time in the afternoon and decided to make a video, since my youtube channel was starting to grow cobwebs!

I went for a scraplift from Pinterest, as I find that this is the best way to get me started when I am not particularly inspired but I want to get something done! The layout I scraplifted can be found here.

I used the You Rock collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio again, as I am completely in love!

This is my video:

And more photos of the layout:

Scrapbooking layout – JUMP

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I had a not-so-great day. Things went a bit pear shaped, both in the craft side and in the day-job side. So I knew I had to keep away from my desk, as I can’t scrapbook when I am not in the right mood. I “can”, but my creations normally show my mood and are not very good.

So I left it all well alone for most of the day until the evening, when I took the opportunity to sit down in my garden, enjoying the last of the sunshine, and had time to relax, clear my mind and go back to my desk with the right mindset.

And this is the layout I created, using the super cool “You Rock” collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio which I got from Lottie Loves Paper recently.

Jump

The title I created from scratch with my Silhouette Cameo.

And a couple more close ups:

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!
