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 – It’s my stick

Hello lovely friends!

Today I bring you a very quick layout that I created earlier this week for a mini challenge over at Lottie Loves Paper. Here is my layout and the sketch that it was inspired by:

It's my stick

And the sketch:

For this layout I used mainly Shimelle’s True Stories collection and some circle die cuts that I already had in my “odd shapes” box 🙂

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.

Silhouette UK Blog – Creating a circular background

Hello everyone!

Today I am over on the Silhouette UK blog with a step by step tutorial on how to create a background made with circles for either scrapbooking or cardmaking. Please pop over to the blog to check it out!

This is the layout that I have created. I have used Pink Paislee’s Oh My Heart papers for my circles and the embellishments are mainly from Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams and a couple of bits from Pink Paislee’s Take Me Away (and some other bits and pieces from my stash)

So happy together

Cyber Krop – Part 2

Hello all!

These are the other layouts that I made for the challenges for the Cyber Krop:

Challenge 5: Counting Sheep – something to do with dreams or nightmares, or someone sleeping.

A dream come true

Challenge 1a – Go Horizontal. The design in your layout has to go all the way from left to right.

Rocky is the best

Challenge 2a – Round and Round. The layout must feature circles and can only have red/yellow/blue (or a combination of) colours.

That twinkle in your eye

Challenge 3a – Ebony and Ivory. You can only use black and white in your layout and some mixed media (I actually forgot about the mixed media, doh!) You also have to include “empowered, proud and/or strong” (which I included in the journalling – I wish I had planned the journalling a bit better as it could have looked quite awesome)

The Loft

And that is it for me! I left two challenges undone as I felt quite drained by the end of it, it was a very exhausting and demanding weekend! Not sure I could do this all over again any time soon. I need a crafty break!

Thanks for popping by and read you soon!
