Scrapbook layout – Amigos de COU

Hi all!

Today’s layout has been made for the extra special “All 13 letters” ABC challenge on For the Love of Pretty Paper. We are on week 13 of our ABC challenge, and as an extra we have asked people to include all the elements that we have drawn so far:

Buttons, red, tags, food, material, journey, diagonal, wood, gold, numbers, languages, squares & kraft.

And here is my layout:

The less obvious items are:

Wood – there’s a wood button on the bottom right corner.
Gold – there’s gold in the “COU” alphas, in the twine in the tag and two little gold enamel shapes.
Material – the twine in the tag
Diagonal – two squares have been folded on their diagonal
Journey – the journalling describes part of my life journey

I used the Rough & Tumble collection again, as it was still on my desk from having used it on my “You Shine” layout just the other day. I thought the colours were great with this photo too!

There is a little red button under the photo in the layout above that I was not happy at all with, so after taking that photo I actually removed the button. Unfortunately, the paper underneath reaped a bit, so I added some word stickers.

Hi all!

Today’s layout and YouTube video is for the ABC challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week’s letter is K, and K is for Kraft! Kraft colour is just gorgeous, and I decided to make it my background.

I have made a process video, so go ahead and have a watch just down there!

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!
