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:

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!

I am on the Silhouette UK Blog today with a quick tutorial on how to fill in text with patterns. This is ideal if you don’t have the right paper for your layout. The Silhouette Store has lots of printable patterns!
Please come over and have a look!

Today’s layout I made for a challenge over at the Mercy Tiara group. It was a tough challenge, I tell you!
The “recipe” was:
1. A theme of music and/or movies. This can be about a favourite song or movie or just a song or movie title as the title for the layout or even song lyrics or a quote from a movie
2. A grid style in part or all of the layout
3. Something black & white
5. A simple outline or sillouhette image, this can be stamped, stencilled or hand drawn
6. I’m scared to say it, but …. No letter stickers!
In addition to this list, there was also a tic tac toe challenge to go with it, and I also incorporated a line from the tic tac toe: Use a frame, stitching and use a list on your journalling.
And here it is! Unfortunately, these colours are hard to photograph!
Thanks for popping by and see you very soon!
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 🙂
Here are two more close ups:
