Scrapbooking Layout – Beautiful

Hello again friends!

Today’s layout I also made at the Scrap Cafe crop in Reading a couple of weekends ago. I wasn’t feeling 100% inspired, so I went for a direct scraplift from the super talented Bea Valint. I used pretty much the same papers and embellishments too (Cocoa Vanilla Studio – Wild at Heart collection). I very rarely copy a layout almost identically, but this one was so pretty that I couldn’t help myself!

Here is my layout, and HERE is Bea’s original one:

Scrapbooking Layout – We can help you paint

Hi all!

This is a layout that has been in the making for quite a while! I originally cut the hearts on my Silhouette to create the Hello Scooter layout. But I knew that I would be able to use the negative space as well, so when I was designing it, I placed the hearts carefully and also added the stitching lines outside the hearts.

Then, a couple of weekends ago, I did the stitching whilst I was at the Scrap Cafe crop in Reading (this has just reminded me that I haven’t shared the other two layouts that I created that day, so I will make a new blog post about those tomorrow).

And finally, I finished the rest of the layout on Saturday! So, yeah, a long time coming!

Here it is:

This was a fun layout to make, and I loved going through my stash to get all my yellow and green embellishments.
I hope you have liked it, and read you very soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Breeding Lice

Hello once again!

Today I bring you the last installment of my Chinese Whispers game!

For this set, my layout was the last in the series, and this series is the one where each layout is almost unrecognisable from the previous one and no resemblance to the original sketch!

Here is the sketch:

First take on the sketch by Michelle:

Who then passed it on to Lis:

Who then passed it to Helen:

And finally, my take on Helen’s layout:

This layout was hilarious to make, and a couple of people have commented on scrapbooking something so gross. But, hey, why not? Why scrapbook about first steps, first words, first everythings… So first lice infestation too! 😀

Thanks for joining me today and read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Magnificent Theatre

Hello again!

Today I bring you another layout from the Chinese whispers game I was telling you about yesterday. This is one of my most favourite layouts recently, I just love how well the black background works!

I was third on this round, so here are the sketch and the other layouts in order:

By Lis

By Helen

My layout

Unlike my set yesterday where all layouts stayed very similar to the original sketch, this set has changed so much from the first one to the last! Great evolution!

I hope you have liked it and read you very soon!

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:
