Layout Lookback video on YouTube (July 2017)

Hi all!

It is not quite the end of the month, but I know I am not going to be making much more before August arrives, so I thought I would get my Layout Lookback video done today 🙂 July wasn’t as busy as May (I don’t think I’ll get another busy month like that again!) but I still managed quite a few layouts.

Here they all are:

Read you very soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Beautiful

Hello again friends!

Today’s layout I also made at the Scrap Cafe crop in Reading a couple of weekends ago. I wasn’t feeling 100% inspired, so I went for a direct scraplift from the super talented Bea Valint. I used pretty much the same papers and embellishments too (Cocoa Vanilla Studio – Wild at Heart collection). I very rarely copy a layout almost identically, but this one was so pretty that I couldn’t help myself!

Here is my layout, and HERE is Bea’s original one:

Scrapbooking Layout – Breeding Lice

Hello once again!

Today I bring you the last installment of my Chinese Whispers game!

For this set, my layout was the last in the series, and this series is the one where each layout is almost unrecognisable from the previous one and no resemblance to the original sketch!

Here is the sketch:

First take on the sketch by Michelle:

Who then passed it on to Lis:

Who then passed it to Helen:

And finally, my take on Helen’s layout:

This layout was hilarious to make, and a couple of people have commented on scrapbooking something so gross. But, hey, why not? Why scrapbook about first steps, first words, first everythings… So first lice infestation too! 😀

Thanks for joining me today and read you soon!

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:

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 🙂
