Scrapbook layout – Mum & me

Hello everyone!

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:

As you can see, I haven’t added any journalling. That’s because of two main reasons:

  1. I felt like it would spoil the very clean feel of the layout
  2. 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!

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!

Scrapbooking Layout – A letter to my father

Hello everyone!

This is a very small Throw Back Thursday, since the layout is only two weeks old! But I completely forgot to blog about it when I finished it, so here it finally is!

I started this page ages ago, in May… I applied gesso to the patterned paper background and then smeared some gold paint. Unfortunately, I hated the final result. Some people said to not give up and keep adding layers of mixed media. And that’s what I did. I wanted to make a layout about my dad, and because of the content of the letter, I knew I wanted the layout to be messy… hence I rescued the page.

So I added lots of ink sprays, modelling paste, more paint, splatters, stamping… And now I actually love how it’s turned out!

Here it is:

I know this is not my usual style, but I love getting messy with mixed media from time to time!

Scrapbooking Layout – Let’s wander (youtube video)

Hello everyone!

I had a bit of time for a layout earlier, and since I was also home alone, I decided to make a video! The layout it’s based on the single page sketch for Stick it Down, and I had lots of fun making it!

I used papers from Shimelle’s first collection and other Shimelle embellishments from other collections and I am so happy with how it’s turned out! Here it is:

I had a tiny accident when splattering the black Heidi Shine, and I smeared a tiny bit in the circle embellishment, however I managed to clean it a bit. You can still see it, but not too noticeable.

And here are a couple of closeups:
