Scrapbooking layout – Super cool jeep

Hello everyone, and welcome again to my blog!

There was another mini challenge last night again on the Lottie Loves Paper facebook group, with a new sketch, and I played along!

This is my layout and the sketch it’s based on:

Super cool jeep

For this layout I used a new Echo Park collection called Just be you. I bought it recently and I thought I should use it rather than hoard it like I would normally do! It’s a really pretty collection with a darker green than I am used to, but I thought it suited these photos quite well any way. And I only used the collection! Apart from the date stamp and the little phrase stickers, every single item on this layout came from the pack! That’s so unusual for me!

Here are a couple more close ups:

Scrapbooking Layout – Going to the movies

Morning everyone!

I got to play with pretty paper last night. I created this layout for a for fun mini challenge over at the Lottie Loves Paper facebook group. It is based on a sketch and I really loved creating it! I actually struggled a tiny bit at the very beginning… it took me a while to choose the papers, but once I made the decision the layout came about quite quickly.

Here is my layout, and the sketch that it’s based on:

Going to the movies

I absolutely adore the aqua cardstock that I used for the background. I seem to remember that I bought it off Lorraine at the Scrap Cafe crop. I must ask her if she’s got more because I would love to buy a few more sheets! Here’s a close up so you can see the lovely texture that it’s got.

Scrapbooking Layout – My ballerina

Good afternoon everyone!

I am having a disastrous crafty afternoon. I have started two projects and both of them have gone wrong! So I decided to down tools and write a blog post instead. As it happens, I have a layout to show you! On Monday night I sat down to scrapbook after quite a while! National Scrapbooking Day was quite intense and I didn’t fancy scrapbooking much since.

I love the page I created so much! Over 90% of the materials used came from current and past Lottie Loves Paper kits. I forced myself to use up some embellishments which have been sitting there for too long! The papers are from the current kit, Oasis collection.

And here it is;

Sorry I haven’t got any close ups. I didn’t take any yesterday and today is super gloomy and rainy so the light is not great to take any more photos.

I hope you have liked this layout and thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbooking Layout – Life’s a beach

Hello everyone!

I hope you are enjoying this fantastic National Scrapbooking Day (aka = weekend!!) I have started early with a superb challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. The challenge is to scrapbook about Spring or Summer, and I just happened to have the best embellishments ever from my latest Lottie Loves Paper kit! I have used the May Stuck? Sketches! sketch so I will be entering my layout there too 🙂

And here it is!

Life's a beach

5 May 1 2017 - Stuck Sketches (600x600)

I painted the background with a bit of white acrylic paint to soften it a bit, and I actually love how it’s turned out. I also added some white and yellow splatters. The papers are from a very old Echo Park Paper collection called Spash. And the embellishments are from my Lottie Loves Paper kit, which is super fun and summery!

Scrapbooking Layout – Motherly Love

Hello lovely scrapbookers!

I attended the Artful Angels crop yesterday and had a lovely day, however, I was not very productive! I only managed to complete three layouts (although one of them was particularly difficult – I’ll show you that one tomorrow). I blame the girls I sat with… too much chatting!

The first layout that I created is the one that I want to show you today. I prepared the cut file on my Silhouette the night before as I knew what I wanted to do, which is unusual for me! I knew I wanted that design of cut file and I knew I wanted to use my Lottie Loves Paper kit papers. So off I went!

This is my photo:

Motherly Love

And a couple of close ups:

So lovely

As I said above, I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Wild at Heart” collection mainly (it came with my April Lottie Loves Paper kit) and the navy paper with tiny white dots is from Shimelle’s Little by Little, but I felt that it went very well with the other papers and with the dress I am wearing in the photo!

I had a little incident when cutting the pattern paper for backing behind the cut file. I accidentally cut through the branding strip and I didn’t realise until it was way too late, as the glue had hardened and there was no way to remove it without damaging the cardstock! So I ended up covering it with a phrase sticker.

The alphas for “motherly” are also Cocoa Vanilla Studio, from a collection called Color Me Happy. They are white and I used watercolours to do an ombrĂ© effect. I love how they turned out! I tried applying watercolours to the foam thicker (“love”) but it didn’t work at all.

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