Stuck Sketches – Friends create

Hello friends!

Welcome to my blog and to my last layout as Design Team Member for Stuck Sketches! My term is up and I am going to be sad to not be part of this amazing team any more. At the same time, you know how much I’ve struggled to find time to scrap in the last few months, so my term being up perhaps not the end of the world.

This month’s sponsors are Creative Embellishments and Scrapbook Nerd and this is the gorgeous sketch that I’ve based my layout on:

Stuck Sketches - 15 March 2018

And here’s my page!

As you can see, I have used one long photo rather than two square ones.

This photo was taken at last October’s Scrap Cafe retreat and I am so happy to be surrounded by super talented scrapbookers!

Scrapbook layout – Adventure

Hello lovely likers!

I was at an all-day crop last weekend and I was quite productive, with 5 layouts! Yay!

Out of the 5, this one is without a doubt, my most favourite.

Adventure | crafts by marialachica | Scrapbook layout using Pebbles ephemera

I sprayed my background with Heidi Shine in white, and the cardstock warped a bit, but I am sure you won’t be able to notice it once the layout is in the page protector in an album.

The ephemera is from Pebbles, from the amazing Midnight Hunting collection that I received a couple of months ago. I finally have autumnal photos to scrap and this was my first one 🙂

The title “Adventure” is a single piece of wood veneer by Heidi Swapp.

Thanks for joining me today and read you very soon!

Scrapbook layout – No regrets

Hi all!

This is another layout that I made for the retreat last weekend. I entered it on a challenge that was about regrets, so I decided to go on a little tangent and capture the story of how I got my last job. It is a very personal story, however I didn’t have a problem with other people reading about it and that’s why I left the journalling showing. My layout is heavily inspired by this one I found on Pinterest.

And here it is!

The papers are from Felicity Jane and Crate Paper “Carousel”. The leaves I die cut at the retreat and the flower embellishments are from 1canoe2.

Thanks for visiting! Read you very soon!

Scrapbook layout – Best friends

Hello everyone!

Today’s layout is about my kids’ best friend from nursery. Unfortunately they don’t go to the same school now so chances that we get to see him again are quite slim, so I thought that it would be nice to have a layout about him in the kids album. And here it is:

I am so happy with how it turned out! It is a scraplift of a layout I found on Pinterest (although I am struggling to find it again! All I can remember is that it came from Fancy Pants), and I loved being able to add some machine stitching at the end.
