Scrapbook Layout – My boy

Hello all!

Today I have a new layout that I scraplifted from the talented Raquel Bowman. I found it on Pinterest and I thought the style was so “me”, plus I have been loving circles lately, so it was perfect! You can see the original here.

And this is my layout:

I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio “You Rock” collection. It is such a gorgeous collection and I still have plenty! I think I can manage at least another 4 layouts (or even more if I maximise my scraps!)

I did some hand stitching in two of the circles, but the piercing guide that I used was only so big, so the stitching is not very near the edge as I would have normally done it, but I think it looks quite good anyway ­čÖé

Here are two more close ups:

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:

Scrapbooking Layout – Let’s wander (youtube video)

Hello everyone!

I had a bit of time for a layout earlier, and since I was also home alone, I decided to make a video! The layout it’s based on the single page sketch for Stick it Down, and I had lots of fun making it!

I used┬ápapers from Shimelle’s first collection and other Shimelle embellishments from other collections and I am so happy with how it’s turned out! Here it is:

I had a tiny accident when splattering the black Heidi Shine, and I smeared a tiny bit in the circle embellishment, however I managed to clean it a bit. You can still see it, but not too noticeable.

And here are a couple of closeups:

Scrapbooking Layout – Horse riding

Hello all!

Today’s layout has been made using Stuck? Sketches August 1st sketch. It is a lovely sketch and the layouts by the design team are truly inspiring!

This is my layout:

Horse riding | crafts by marialachica | scrapbook layout based on August 1st 2017 Stuck Sketches

I used the “Just be you” collection by Echo Park Paper. I have only used this collection in one other layout and I thought it was time to get it out again!

Something that bothered me a lot about this layout is that I don’t remember the date when these photos were taken! I know it was a special date, like an anniversary but I have no idea of which year! So it could be 2008,┬ábefore we got married, or it could be 2010 for our first wedding anniversary… Not sure! I have been looking at other photos to see if I have my hair in a similar style, so I can recognise the date, but it’s proving difficult! Unfortunately the date stamp in the digital photos is wrong (it says 01.01.2008), so I’m so gutted! Hopefully, Jon will be able to help me figure it out and then I can add the date under the stamped word “Lyndhurst”.

Here are a couple more close ups:
