UK Scrap Addicts – Burton Dassett

Hello scrapbookers!

A new month, which means it’s time for a new theme over at Uk Scrap Addicts! This month we are creating layouts with one single 6×4 photo. This was a bit of a challenge for me as you will able to see in my video below!

Anyway, here it is, and the video below… I hope you’ll watch and enjoy!

Layout Lookback – May 2018

Hello everyone!

It’s is the end of the month and here’s my recap video with all the layouts that I’ve created this month. We had National Scrapbooking Day (or weekend!) and I also attended a crop the following week, which means I have been considerably busy! Definitely busier than previous months!

Here’s my video and I hope you enjoy it!

International Scrapbooking Weekend!

Hi all!

I just wanted to come in quickly to let you all know that this weekend is (Inter)National Scrapbooking Weekend! (It’s actually “Day”, not weekend, but you know us scrapbookers, we like to make the most of things and we have turned one day into a whole weekend)

We decided not to run anything on UK Scrap Addicts as there were already so many groups having events, and with the new team having just joined, we really didn’t have that much time to organise anything properly. And from my experience in the admin team for FTLOPP last year, these things take a lot of organization!

So I have just been participating in challenges for For the Love of Pretty Paper, and I have completed three for the Mercy Tiara group. I am hoping to get at least two or three more today, and perhaps catch up with the ones I didn’t get to complete tomorrow, which is a bank holiday!

Read you soon!

Scrapbook layout – Double trouble

Hello everyone!

I’ve got a very special layout for you today as it has been created for National Scrapbooking Day! The lovely Natalie, who is admin on For the Love of Pretty Paper, asked me to collaborate with one layout for one of the challenges that they are organising for NSD and I was more than happy to oblige! The challenge is to make a layout without using trimmers or die cut machines, etc… Just you and your scissors!

And here is my layout:

I fussy cut all the speech bubbles which are from Shimelle’s latest collection and I also cut by hand the background paper!

And I also have a YouTube process video for you!

I hope you will join us with all the super challenges that they have organised for the weekend!

Cardmaking – Happy birthday (for The Social Papercrafter)

Hello all again!

My second project for The Social Papercrafter Magazine is a card based on a sketch. I very usually follow sketches for scrapbook layouts but I don’t do so for cards that often. I have in the past, but it’s not something I tend to do.

However, when I saw the sketch for the card in this edition of the magazine, I knew I wanted to give it a go. Especially, because the sketch is quite simple, which for me is much more helpful than when the sketch is quite complex with lots of detail, because then you tend to overthink things. With simple sketches, it’s easier to come up with a quick idea in your head and then extend that original idea.

And here are the sketch and my card:
