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!

Scrapbooking Layout – Beautiful

Hello again friends!

Today’s layout I also made at the Scrap Cafe crop in Reading a couple of weekends ago. I wasn’t feeling 100% inspired, so I went for a direct scraplift from the super talented Bea Valint. I used pretty much the same papers and embellishments too (Cocoa Vanilla Studio – Wild at Heart collection). I very rarely copy a layout almost identically, but this one was so pretty that I couldn’t help myself!

Here is my layout, and HERE is Bea’s original one:

Scrapbooking Layout – Morning Face

Hi all!

This is a layout that I made a couple of weekends ago at the Scrap Cafe crop in Reading. I was inspired by a layout I saw on Pinterest, however, I have been looking for it in order to link to it here and I can’t find it! I was just inspired by it, it’s not a straight scraplift, otherwise I would feel terrible! I always like giving credit where credit is due. I used Dear Lizzy Lovely Day papers and some embellishments from OneCanoeTwo “Hazelwood” collection.

The word “morning” was stamped, and I actually loved doing it… I have a few alphabet stamp sets and I very rarely use them! I need to get them out more 🙂

Scrapbooking Layout – We can help you paint

Hi all!

This is a layout that has been in the making for quite a while! I originally cut the hearts on my Silhouette to create the Hello Scooter layout. But I knew that I would be able to use the negative space as well, so when I was designing it, I placed the hearts carefully and also added the stitching lines outside the hearts.

Then, a couple of weekends ago, I did the stitching whilst I was at the Scrap Cafe crop in Reading (this has just reminded me that I haven’t shared the other two layouts that I created that day, so I will make a new blog post about those tomorrow).

And finally, I finished the rest of the layout on Saturday! So, yeah, a long time coming!

Here it is:

This was a fun layout to make, and I loved going through my stash to get all my yellow and green embellishments.
I hope you have liked it, and read you very soon!
