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.
I used the Endless Summer collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio, which is absolutely gorgeous!
Thanks for visiting again, and read you soon!
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:

Morning everyone! Yesterday we started a new mini challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper, and this week the letter we have gone for is T, and T is for Tags! Until Friday next week, we are encouraging people to use tags in their layouts.
And here is my first layout!
I have used the Felicity Jane “London” collection which I bought second hand recently. I also used it yesterday on another layout that I can’t show you just yet, so I have formed myseld an opinion on the products! And my first impression is this: the papers are super good quality, very pretty and I love the colours. Not 100% happy about the fact that there are so many solid papers and not enough patterns, but I can live with that. The sticker sheet is very pretty, but not happy about the fact that I had to fussy cut all the elements myself, and also, once you remove the backing paper of the sticker sheet, the sticker itself is a bit flimsy. I removed the backing paper on a couple of the stickers, and for the rest I have just added glue and used them not as stickers.
The embellishments are nice, but there aren’t enough in the packet. The alphas I absolutely love, so very happy with those.

Yesterday I managed to get another layout done for the Red challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper.
I cut some hearts with my silhouette and placed them over a new piece of cardstock. I put a tiny bit of removable glue under each heart so they wouldn’t move, and then sprayed with red mist over each heart. I carefully removed the hearts and the result was quite cool!
I then stitched with black thread around the hearts and finished putting my layout together with gold hearts and other embellishments. I am so happy with the final result!! I hope you like it too!

Hello lovely readers!
We have started a brand new weekly challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper facebook group. Last week the letter was B and the stash item to use were buttons. This week the letter is R and we have to use the colour red or be inspired by red on our layouts.
And these are the two layouts I have created so far! I may make one or two more by the end of the challenge week (next Friday) but I can’t promise anything!
You and me watching the footy
I really struggled to come up with my first layout featuring red. So I stopped to think what did red remind me of? And it came straight away. Red reminds me of Spain! So this is how this layout came to life:
You’ve got style
I decided to go a bit messy with a mixed media layout. I am still not sure that messy mixed media is “my thing”, I much prefer clean layouts, but these are fun to create from time to time. The secret is to keep adding things, even when you think you’re done! So I added acrylic paint with the bubble wrap technique, watercolours with the packaging technique, mists through a stencil, splatters and a bit of stamping too! I also added some cross stitching 🙂
Thanks for visiting everyone! and hopefully I will read you very soon!
