UK Scrap Addicts Design Team – Five current things about me

Hi all!

Today’s layout was done for UK Scrap Addict’s Grab 5 challenge. To celebrate that we reached 500 followers on Instagram, we asked our followers to suggest items to do a Grab 5. And these are items:

  • Pattern paper for background
  • Embossing powder
  • Half used sticker sheet
  • Large title
  • Number stickers or die cuts

And it was a bit of a challenge! Especially introducing embossing powder! It’s one of the most neglected items on my stash!

Here’s my layout:

Layout Lookback video on YouTube (July 2017)

Hi all!

It is not quite the end of the month, but I know I am not going to be making much more before August arrives, so I thought I would get my Layout Lookback video done today 🙂 July wasn’t as busy as May (I don’t think I’ll get another busy month like that again!) but I still managed quite a few layouts.

Here they all are:

Scrapbooking Layout – The Warmth

Hello everyone!

This layout was not an easy one. First of all, I knew I wanted to scrap those lyrics (they are from “The Warmth”, my favourite Incubus song) but I didn’t know how. Many different ideas came to my head: use thinkers and stickers, just print the lyrics in the background (like I did with my 21 pilots layout) or whether to use a photo or not! I eventually settled with cutting the words on my Silhouette (and this came with several designs and fonts too!). Once cut, I had no idea what to do with it either! At some point during my design process I thought of using thickers in a rainbow style (idea went to poop when I realised that I didn’t have thickers in all the colours of the rainbow!) but the idea of the rainbow stayed and that’s how I decided to back my letters.

And here it is!

Since the mahoosive title and the photo were taking all of the space, I decided to write around the border. I thought it would be better to design it in Word and then print it rather than attempt to hand-write it.

I have made this layout to enter it in TWO challenges. One is for For the Love of Pretty Paper, ABC challenges. This coming week is G is for Gold, so I added the gold glitter washi tape and the gold hearts in the centre of the O’s. The other challenge is for a Page called Create me Scrappy Happy (a page about using scrapbooking for bettering your mental health) and the challenge was to use lyrics or a song title.

Scrapbooking Layout – Spanish cakes are the best ever (YouTube video)

Hello everyone! I think this is going to be my last layout of the month unless I manage to get something else done at the weekend!

So today’s layout is inspired on Stick it Down‘s July single page sketch. As you will see from the video below, I started the layout following the sketch quite closely, but when it came to putting my photos down, I decided to rotate it. This means, though, that the stars at the top are not very straight, but this does not bother me too much.

I decided to use lots of washi tape. There was a conversation on FTLOPP about washi tape, and I realised how little I use mine, so I picked my favourite colour combination and made stars out of them 🙂

Here’s my layout, and the video!
