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:

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.

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 – Motherly Love

Hello lovely scrapbookers!

I attended the Artful Angels crop yesterday and had a lovely day, however, I was not very productive! I only managed to complete three layouts (although one of them was particularly difficult – I’ll show you that one tomorrow). I blame the girls I sat with… too much chatting!

The first layout that I created is the one that I want to show you today. I prepared the cut file on my Silhouette the night before as I knew what I wanted to do, which is unusual for me! I knew I wanted that design of cut file and I knew I wanted to use my Lottie Loves Paper kit papers. So off I went!

This is my photo:

Motherly Love

And a couple of close ups:

So lovely

As I said above, I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Wild at Heart” collection mainly (it came with my April Lottie Loves Paper kit) and the navy paper with tiny white dots is from Shimelle’s Little by Little, but I felt that it went very well with the other papers and with the dress I am wearing in the photo!

I had a little incident when cutting the pattern paper for backing behind the cut file. I accidentally cut through the branding strip and I didn’t realise until it was way too late, as the glue had hardened and there was no way to remove it without damaging the cardstock! So I ended up covering it with a phrase sticker.

The alphas for “motherly” are also Cocoa Vanilla Studio, from a collection called Color Me Happy. They are white and I used watercolours to do an ombr√© effect. I love how they turned out! I tried applying watercolours to the foam thicker (“love”) but it didn’t work at all.

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

Scrapbook Layout – She leaves a little bit of sparkle (youtube video)

Hello fellow scrapbookers!

I’m back with you today with my first scrapbooking process video on youtube! Eeekkkkk! (Actually, this is my second youtube video, but the first one to be published. My first process video I made the other day for UK Scrap Addicts, but it not due to be published until next week. ¬†Stay tuned for that!)

For this layout I have used my new Lottie Loves Paper kit which arrived just this morning. It is composed mainly by Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Wild at Heart” collection, which is absolutely gorgeous!!

Here is a photo of the layout:

Any constructive feedback is more than welcome. I am not sure how often I will be making videos, but definitely a two or three a month I can squeeze!

Thanks for stopping by,
