UK Scrap Addicts – Burton Dassett

Hello scrapbookers!

A new month, which means it’s time for a new theme over at Uk Scrap Addicts! This month we are creating layouts with one single 6×4 photo. This was a bit of a challenge for me as you will able to see in my video below!

Anyway, here it is, and the video below… I hope you’ll watch and enjoy!

Scrapbook layout – Double trouble

Hello everyone!

I’ve got a very special layout for you today as it has been created for National Scrapbooking Day! The lovely Natalie, who is admin on For the Love of Pretty Paper, asked me to collaborate with one layout for one of the challenges that they are organising for NSD and I was more than happy to oblige! The challenge is to make a layout without using trimmers or die cut machines, etc… Just you and your scissors!

And here is my layout:

I fussy cut all the speech bubbles which are from Shimelle’s latest collection and I also cut by hand the background paper!

I hope you will join us with all the super challenges that they have organised for the weekend!

Scrapbook layout – Mum & me

Hello everyone!

This is the second layout I created at the Scrap Café crop on Saturday. And I love love love it!

Definitely, this turquoise textured cardstock is one of my most favourite. I love all the layouts I’ve made with it lately! For the florals, I wanted to use a paper by Dear Lizzy that a lot of people have been using lately, but I didn’t have it, so I rummaged Lorraine’s stash until I found this perfect one! Fussy cutting at a crop is not a great idea, since you’re “wasting” precious time, but I didn’t care. I was there to spend time with my crafty friends, and the number of layouts was secondary!

And here it is:

As you can see, I haven’t added any journalling. That’s because of two main reasons:

  1. I felt like it would spoil the very clean feel of the layout
  2. This photo was taken the same day as my previous layout (lovely cousins) and they will go side by side, so no need to add more to it.

I hope you have enjoyed this, read you very soon!

Scrapbooking layout – Run wild and free

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!

Run wild and free | crafts by marialachica | scrapbook layout using Felicity Jane "London" collection

 

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.

Thanks for visiting and read you soon!
