Scrapbook layout – 3 cheeky monkeys

Hello friends!

For today’s layout I wanted to use scraps and that is absolutely what I’ve done! Not a single full piece of paper was cut to create this layout!

The four stripes of paper surrounding the turquoise cardstock are the only leftovers, proper scraps!!, from the layout I made the other day for the Silhouette UK blog. The turquoise cardstock and background stripey paper are also scraps! For the embellishments, I took a half-used pack of “snip-its” by Cocoa Vanilla Studio, form the Colour Me Happy collection.

Stick it Down August winner!

Hi all!

Exciting news today… I won the August challenge over at Stick it Down!! YAY! It was with my Let’s wander layout 🙂

This means I will be guest designing for them in October… And I’ll tell you something: I’ve already seen the sketch that I will have to work with and it’s awesome!! I’m so over the moon!

In the meantime, I also want to have a go at their card sketch for September. I have an idea in mind, but I just need the time to make it!

Scrapbooking layout – Just be yourself

Hello everyone!

Today’s layout I made for a challenge on the Mind the Scrap group. This week’s challenge is to scraplift other ladies participating in the event. There have been 5 weeks of challenges so far, although this one is my first week participating, so there are plenty of layouts to scraplift!

This is my layout:

I used the Felicity Jane “London” collection, and I am so happy that I have been able to make two layouts so far with this collection which are quite masculine!

Here’s a close up of that mini cluster at the bottom. The puffy camera is soooo gorgeous! I have a few of them that came in one of my Lottie Loves Paper kits, but I have no idea where they are from!

Scrapbook layout – Picture perfect

Hi friends!

This is the third and last layout that I made at the Scrap Cafe crop on Saturday. I used papers from the “Tealightful” collection by Pebbles, and the embellishments are mainly Cocoa Vanilla Studio, from the “Love Always” collection. Both purchased from Lottie Loves Paper.

I had to retouch the mixed media under the papers once I got home, as what I added at the crop was mainly hidden by the papers. And as you can see, I went fro a cream textured cardstock, rather than pure white and I think it looks great!

Here it is:

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!
