Scrapbook layout – Lovely cousins

Hello everyone!

I was at the Scrap Cafe crop yesterday and I managed three layouts! To be honest, I attend the crop for the chit chat and crafty gossip more than anything, so the number of completed layouts is the least of my worries. Still! I think three layouts in 5 hours is quite decent!

Today’s layout was inspired by Natalie Nelson’s “squares” layout on For the Love of Pretty Paper. She cut her photos and pattern papers in 4 inches square and then stitched all the edges. I wanted to make something similar, however, knowing that I wouldn’t be doing any machine stitching, I thought that leaving a little gap amongst the squares would be better.

I used Dear Lizzy “Lovely Day” papers and most of the embellishments, and some thickers and alphas from my stash.

I hope you like it!

Scrapbook layout – Such a happy girl (youtube video)

Hi all!

Today’s layout has been made for the new letter prompt on For the Love of Pretty Paper’s ABC challenge. This week the letter is S and S is for Squares! We want people to feature squares on their layouts. Be it small squares or large ones, one or many… Up to you!

I have created quite a few “squarey” layouts lately, so today I wanted to make something a bit different and I decided to create just one big square as the main focus of the layout. I have used Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Wild at heart” collection, which is so gorgeous!

Here’s my layout and video! I hope you’ll watch!

Scrapbooking Layout – Of all the paths

Hello everyone!

This layout is for the August challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. The challenge is to make a layout about the seaside, but with a twist! You have to use the colour yellow, something circular, washi tape, half used sheet of stickers and washi tape.

And here is my layout:

I also decided to use a large photo and to make clusters of embellishments, which are the latest two prompts for UK Scrap Addicts. A couple more close ups.

Scrapbooking Layout – Top Ten favourite albums

Hello all!

On Friday we chose a new letter for the weekly ABC challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper, and the new letter is N, and N is for numbers! This week we are asking members of the group to introduce numbers into their layouts, in any way they want! They can refer to a date, age, just random numbers as embellishments… anything!

So for my layout I decided to do a Top Ten of my favourite albums for my Book of Me (I will also be doing a Top Ten favourite films and another about TV shows at some point), and I must say that I love how the layout turned out! Here it is:

I picked a selection of pattern papers from some 6×6 pads and cut two stars with each pattern, one big and one small. I sued glittery thickers for my numbers and I also used other thickers for part of my title. I also stamped on my title, however, I think I am going to cover up the “of all time” with little alpha stickers as I am not too keen on how those little stamps look.

And here’s a close up:
