Scrapbooking Layout – Hello gorgeous

Hello! This is the fourth layout that I created at the crop on Saturday. Despite having decided that I need to create more layouts of my daughter, I ended up creating two of my son and only one of my daughter! Next time I need to take just photos of Elisa so I avoid the temptation!

This is a very simple layout but I love how effective it is. I sprayed the background with some ink sprays (two Heidi Shines and one Tim Holtz, which is not as shiny as Heidi’s) and then used some Simple Stories’ DIY Boutique collection papers for a monochromatic feel. I added a few enamel shapes from the new Pinkfresh Studio No. 1 Mix, which are awesome!

Scrapbooking Layout – My Sweet Little Pirate

Hi all! Here’s another layout from my last crop.

My sweet little pirate is about how my daughter, completely out of the blue, decided one day that she wanted to play dress up… She never wants to play dress up… Even now, months after the event, she never wants to play dress up. So I thought that this memorable occasion needed to be kept forever! She even smiled for the camera!

As you can see, this layout is very minimalist, and I mostly used Echo Park’s “Pirate’s Life” Element Stickers. The glitter thickers are “Eclair”, and the other alphas from my stash.

I hope you like it and read you soon!

Scrapbook Layout – The beginning of our adventure

Hello all!

Yesterday I attended my second crop of the month (gasp!) and it was with the lovely Artful Angels ladies. This is one of the layouts that I made at the crop, and it is a scraplift from the lovely Sarah, who attends the crop and who is also the owner of Lottie Loves Paper, where I get my monthly embellishment kit from.

This is her layout which I scraplifted:

And this is my take on it!

The background stripey paper is from Kaisercraft “Back to basics” collection, and the butterflies are cut from my 6×6 Crate Paper “Chasing Dreams” paper pad. The “adventure” copper thicker is from Shimelle’s “Go Now Go” collection, and the other alphas are Basic Grey from my stash (similar to these ones)

I added some watercolour to the white cardstock using the packaging technique, and I also matted my photo in some pink and gold paper from my stash (do not know the manufacturer).

This is the very first photo that I have scrapbooked about my wedding, and I have really surprised myself using pinks, as the main colour scheme of my wedding was turquoise/teal and black… Maybe I will scrap another photo in those colours another time 🙂

Scrapbooking Layout – It’s all about the ponytail

Hello all! I hope you’re having a good weekend so far!

Today I bring you a layout that I created earlier this week for the Sketchy Scrappers group on Facebook. Their mid-month challenge was to create a layout inspired on a Valentine’s card that one of the admins had received.

And this is my take on it! I took inspiration from the grid layout and the flowers in the card, and I used Paige Evans’ Take Me Away for the papers, thickers and embellishments. The other alphas came from my stash, I can’t remember which manufacturer right now.

Its all about the ponytail

As you can see, I also did a bit of white splatters; unfortunately they got a bit all over the place, but I am actually quite pleased with how the layout looks.

And a couple of closeups:

Scrapbooking process – Sunshine and smiles

Hello all!

On Sunday last week I managed to get a little break from the chaos in my house and sat down to create a layout. I originally wanted to follow a sketch that I found on the UK Scrappers forum, however, after looking at it for ages I decided to go with my own flow and see what happened!

UKS challenge

So as you can see, I started following the sketch by adding some washi tape however that’s where all resemblance with the sketch ends! I am happy that I followed my flow as I am very happy with the finished product.

The surrounding background paper is from Simple Stories “Whatever” collection. The washi tapes are from Ikea! (yes! Ikea do washi tape too!) and the rest of the embellishments are from Fancy Pants “Life is Beautiful” Collection.
