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:

Layout Lookback video on YouTube (July 2017)

Hi all!

It is not quite the end of the month, but I know I am not going to be making much more before August arrives, so I thought I would get my Layout Lookback video done today 🙂 July wasn’t as busy as May (I don’t think I’ll get another busy month like that again!) but I still managed quite a few layouts.

Here they all are:

Scrapbooking Layout – The Warmth

Hello everyone!

This layout was not an easy one. First of all, I knew I wanted to scrap those lyrics (they are from “The Warmth”, my favourite Incubus song) but I didn’t know how. Many different ideas came to my head: use thinkers and stickers, just print the lyrics in the background (like I did with my 21 pilots layout) or whether to use a photo or not! I eventually settled with cutting the words on my Silhouette (and this came with several designs and fonts too!). Once cut, I had no idea what to do with it either! At some point during my design process I thought of using thickers in a rainbow style (idea went to poop when I realised that I didn’t have thickers in all the colours of the rainbow!) but the idea of the rainbow stayed and that’s how I decided to back my letters.

And here it is!

Since the mahoosive title and the photo were taking all of the space, I decided to write around the border. I thought it would be better to design it in Word and then print it rather than attempt to hand-write it.

And one more close up:

I have made this layout to enter it in TWO challenges. One is for For the Love of Pretty Paper, ABC challenges. This coming week is G is for Gold, so I added the gold glitter washi tape and the gold hearts in the centre of the O’s. The other challenge is for a Page called Create me Scrappy Happy (a page about using scrapbooking for bettering your mental health) and the challenge was to use lyrics or a song title.

Scrapbooking Layout – Good Day

Hello everyone! Today is Friday which means a new letter for the ABC challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week’s letter is W and it stands for Wood! However, today’s layout is using last week’s letter which was D, D for Diagonal. I have just been super busy this week and I didn’t get a chance to update the blog!

So for my Diagonal layout I went for this gorgeous pattern paper as a background, because it also has lots of little diagonals on it too and I thought it suited the theme quite well!. The paper is from the Oasis collection and I think I may have to buy another sheet as I love it so much. I also added all my embellishments on a diagonal line, from bottom left to top right.

And here it is!
