Scrapbooking Layout – Pool Fun

Hello again friends!

Today I want to show you another layout that I created at the Scrap Cafe all day crop on Saturday last week. I actually made this layout for one of the challenges, but I read the instructions wrong and I couldn’t enter it (the challenge was to use scraps – which I did – but the instructions said that the scraps couldn’t be more than 4cms wide and I misread that for inches, and I made my triangles 3 inches wide…)

I am still very very happy with the finished layout, though, so I am not sad at all that I couldn’t enter it in the challenge.

Here it is:

The papers I used were from scraps in my scraps box so I don’t really remember which collections they are from, sorry! The thickers and the embellishments are from Pink Paislee’s Fancy Free collection.

Here’s a close up:

I love love love this turquoise cardstock which I bought at the crop. I must buy more next time!

Scrapbook Layout – Just for Fun

Hello all!

As we say goodbye to the month of June, I thought I would share a layout that I made for June’s monthly challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. I set the challenge and it was a moodboard, but not a fancy one like the ones on Pinterest, but a very “homely” one! The moodboard was entirely made with objects from my home 🙂

This is the moodboard:

And this is my layout:

I think it is very easy to see where I got the inspiration from! I actually loved making such a mess with the white paint and I thought the photos really suited the layout.

I used embellishments from Simple Stories, and the “just for fun” is from a thickers pack that I painted over. They were originally pink, but I didn’t think that shade of pink suited the layout.

I hope you have enjoyed it and thanks for popping over!

Scrapbooking Layout – Mr Potato dream

Hi all!

Here’s a layout that I created on Monday for this week’s challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week’s letter is F, and F is for Food! I saw this photo of my son from when he was obsessed with his Mr Potato Head and I thought it was perfect for the challenge! I hadn’t put any of my stuff away from the crop yet, so I managed to get the layout done downstairs whilst the kids were happy playing with themselves. Let me tell you, this does not happen often at all!

I also took the opportunity to enter this layout in a mini challenge over at the Lottie Loves Paper facebook group. The challenge was to use a recipe: just one photo, at least four pattern papers, stitching of some sort, something turquoise, stamping, bling and enamel.

Here is my layout:

The papers are all from previous Lottie Loves Paper kits, and the word dream and the butterfly are from Shimelle’s starshine collection. It is a very simple layout, but I actually love the simplicity of it. It is funny how I either go for very simple or very busy layouts! Very rarely the middle point 🙂

Here’s a close up of the stitching, as it can hardly be noticed in the main image!

You have probably seen me use this combination of papers before, and that’s because I looooooove them! Haha 🙂

I hope you have enjoyed this layout and read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Bedtime

Hello friends!

On Saturday I attended an all day crop in Bracknell. I was a bit late, though, as I also went to the theatre with the kids in the morning (I wouldn’t have missed their first theatre experience for anything in the world! and I am already looking forward to scrapbooking that event). So I got to the crop at around 1:30 pm and I stayed until 9:30pm. So a long time! Sadly, I wasn’t feeling 100% and I only completed 4 layouts in total, so not my most productive day but I still had a great time.

The first layout I want to show you, I actually started at home a few days earlier. I used a very similar technique than in my layout called Hello Scooter. I die cut some star shapes with my Big Shot and then splattered all over them with watercolours and some Heidi Shine too. I then stitched around the star shapes with black thread.

And here it is:

Since the layout is already so busy with the splatters, I decided to leave it pretty much untouched and only did a tiny bit amount of embellishing with some stars, a bit of journalling and the date.

Here’s a close up of the splatters:

I will post the other layouts in the next few days.

I hope you have liked this layout, and read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Well fed dolls

Hello friends!

Today I am on the All Day Crop in Bracknell, so I expect I will be creating quite a few layouts to show you next week! However, before that, I want to show you the layout that I created for the new weekly ABC challenge on For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week the letter is F and F is for Food!

This is the perfect opportunity to use all those food embellishments that I very rarely use, like pineapples, cupcakes, strawberries, etc.

And here is my first layout!

I used a mixed of brands on this layout. The spotty paper is Echo Park Paper, the navy blue is Dear Lizzy, the embellishments are Simple Stories “posh” and the alphas are Hazel Thickers and Freckled Fawn. I love mixing up collections!

And a close up of the photo. Such a cute photo of the twins feeding “their babies” 🙂
