Scrapbooking Layout – Lego caterpillar

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

Today’s layout is part of a crafty game that I took part on the Mind The Scrap group, called Chinese Whispers. The concept is very simple: One person creates a layout based on a sketch, then sends it to person number 2 to scraplift, who then passes on to person three and then four (or as many people as you want in your group!). There were four of us in my group.

So today I am going to show you the first set of Chinese whispers that started with me. I based my layout on a sketch I found on Pinterest, and created my layout with my June Lottie Loves Paper kit. Here it is:

And here is the sketch:

I then passed on my layout to Helen, she passed hers to Lis, who passed hers to Michelle. Here are the next three:

Thanks for popping over friends, and read you very soon!

Layout Lookback video on youtube

Hi all!

I am still in Spain, but I thought I would post a video that I uploaded to youtube the other day with all the layouts that I created in the month of June. I actually love making these videos every month or so, as it gives me another opportunity to look at them before I put them away in the albums!

Here is the video. I’ll be back soon, and already have some layouts planned for when I’m home!

PS: Youtube allows me to schedule videos and create custom thumbnails… Cool!! I was looking forward to that and it has finally happened!

Read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Wild and Free

Hello friends!

Here’s another layout from the all day crop last week. This actually started as a scraplift of a Bea Valint layout but it took a bit of a life of its own and they don’t really look like each other much. But that’s ok! I took her layout as a starting point, rather than lifting it completely.

And here it is:

The papers are from the Dear Lizzy Collection “Saturday” and I chose them because of the apples and pears pattern paper, because it meant that the layout could also be part of the F is for Food challenge (although I never entered it last week)

I bought a few craft cardstock sheets at the crop and absolutely love the look and feel of them!

Here’s a close up:

The texture paste I borrowed from my friend Claire and it was very interesting! It wasn’t paste per se, but more like a mousse and it was fun to use! She bought a set of four from either Aldi or Lidl for just £5. That’s a bargain!

I hope you have liked this layout and see you again soon!

Scrapbook Layout – Just for Fun

Hello all!

As we say goodbye to the month of June, I thought I would share a layout that I made for June’s monthly challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. I set the challenge and it was a moodboard, but not a fancy one like the ones on Pinterest, but a very “homely” one! The moodboard was entirely made with objects from my home 🙂

This is the moodboard:

And this is my layout:

I think it is very easy to see where I got the inspiration from! I actually loved making such a mess with the white paint and I thought the photos really suited the layout.

I used embellishments from Simple Stories, and the “just for fun” is from a thickers pack that I painted over. They were originally pink, but I didn’t think that shade of pink suited the layout.

I hope you have enjoyed it and thanks for popping over!

Scrapbooking Layout – Bedtime

Hello friends!

On Saturday I attended an all day crop in Bracknell. I was a bit late, though, as I also went to the theatre with the kids in the morning (I wouldn’t have missed their first theatre experience for anything in the world! and I am already looking forward to scrapbooking that event). So I got to the crop at around 1:30 pm and I stayed until 9:30pm. So a long time! Sadly, I wasn’t feeling 100% and I only completed 4 layouts in total, so not my most productive day but I still had a great time.

The first layout I want to show you, I actually started at home a few days earlier. I used a very similar technique than in my layout called Hello Scooter. I die cut some star shapes with my Big Shot and then splattered all over them with watercolours and some Heidi Shine too. I then stitched around the star shapes with black thread.

And here it is:

Since the layout is already so busy with the splatters, I decided to leave it pretty much untouched and only did a tiny bit amount of embellishing with some stars, a bit of journalling and the date.

Here’s a close up of the splatters:

I will post the other layouts in the next few days.

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