Today’s layout I created just on Monday for a mini challenge on the Mercy Tiara facebook group, with a Creative Scrappers sketch set by Moira 🙂
Here’s my layout and the sketch:
I used the You Rock collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I am very pleased to say that I still have enough papers and embellishments for at least 4 or 5 layouts more! <3
Here are two more closeups:
I hope you have liked this layout, and thanks for visiting!
This is the third and last layout that I made at the Scrap Cafe crop on Saturday. I used papers from the “Tealightful” collection by Pebbles, and the embellishments are mainly Cocoa Vanilla Studio, from the “Love Always” collection. Both purchased from Lottie Loves Paper.
I had to retouch the mixed media under the papers once I got home, as what I added at the crop was mainly hidden by the papers. And as you can see, I went fro a cream textured cardstock, rather than pure white and I think it looks great!
Here it is:

This is the second layout I created at the Scrap Café crop on Saturday. And I love love love it!
Definitely, this turquoise textured cardstock is one of my most favourite. I love all the layouts I’ve made with it lately! For the florals, I wanted to use a paper by Dear Lizzy that a lot of people have been using lately, but I didn’t have it, so I rummaged Lorraine’s stash until I found this perfect one! Fussy cutting at a crop is not a great idea, since you’re “wasting” precious time, but I didn’t care. I was there to spend time with my crafty friends, and the number of layouts was secondary!
And here it is:
And a couple of close ups:
As you can see, I haven’t added any journalling. That’s because of two main reasons:
- I felt like it would spoil the very clean feel of the layout
- This photo was taken the same day as my previous layout (lovely cousins) and they will go side by side, so no need to add more to it.
I hope you have enjoyed this, read you very soon!
I was at the Scrap Cafe crop yesterday and I managed three layouts! To be honest, I attend the crop for the chit chat and crafty gossip more than anything, so the number of completed layouts is the least of my worries. Still! I think three layouts in 5 hours is quite decent!
Today’s layout was inspired by Natalie Nelson’s “squares” layout on For the Love of Pretty Paper. She cut her photos and pattern papers in 4 inches square and then stitched all the edges. I wanted to make something similar, however, knowing that I wouldn’t be doing any machine stitching, I thought that leaving a little gap amongst the squares would be better.
I used Dear Lizzy “Lovely Day” papers and most of the embellishments, and some thickers and alphas from my stash.
I hope you like it!
Read you very soon!
Well, both this blog and my YouTube channel are one year old! I have no idea where time has gone, but here we are, we year on and still loving blogging and making videos!
To celebrate the first anniversary, I asked the girls on For the Love of Pretty Paper to come up with questions and here it is! I hope the video is not too long and that you enjoy it!
Thanks for visiting!
