Here is another layout I have made for the Scrapping4fun Design Team! This month’s challenge was to use a sketch… and I love sketches! The real challenge for me was the fact that the sample sketch that we were given was for a double page layout and I don’t really do double page layouts! So I had to use my imagination and “translate” the sketch into a single page layout. I think I did quite well! I’ll let you be the judge. Here’s my layout and the sketch!
So, what do you think? As I wanted to use so many photos in such a “small” space, I really had to go minimal so as to not overload the layout. That’s why I kept the pattern papers away, pretty much, and stuck to solid colours.
And a couple of close ups:

I’ve got super exciting news for you today…. I made it into the Stuck?! Sketches design team!! Yuhuuuuu! I have been a fan of Stuck?! Sketches since I started scrapping in 12×12, so being chosen to be part of the team is not only an honour but almost like a dream come true!
Come over their page where they are announcing the new team, I am surrounded by a very talented group of ladies! I still can’t believe it… I need to pinch myself! 😀
So come over in a few days when I can show you my first layout for this amazing team!!
I’m in the Silhouette UK blog today with a fun tutorial on how to fake “thickers”.We all know how thickers are now a must have in every crafters stash, however they are not the cheapest and you are also quite limited by the words they sell. So I decided to create my own one!
Come over the blog to see how I made it!
Read you very soon!
I am on the UK Scrap Addicts blog and YouTube channel today with a layout all about Journalling! I hope you’ll come and have a look!

Excited news today! I have made it into the Design Team for Scrapping 4 Fun challenges! It is a very varied group of talented ladies, with all kinds of techniques and styles, so I am so excited to bring a bit of “mariastyle” to the table!
The first challenge that I am participating on is #98 and it’s all about techniques. The technique that I am using on this layout is Stamping directly on the page.
I got out all my stamps (I don’t have that many, trust me!) and my versafine ink (my favourite!) and got stamping! I left like a semicircle of white space for my photo, but other than that I pretty much filled up all of the space! I am so pleased with how it turned out! This technique works better with photopolymer stamps and a clear block, because then you can clearly see where you are going to be stamping. I don’t think this technique would work well with wood-mount stamps.
