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!

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.

Scrapbook layout – Scrappy squad eats pizza

Hello friends!

I attended to Scrap Cafe retreat at the weekend and I had a great time! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to stay overnight in the hotel, which means my scrappy time was slightly reduced. But I still managed 9 layouts, which I am quite happy about (my personal target was 10, but I lost my mojo at the end).

This layout here is one of the last ones I made and one of my most favourite. On Saturday night my scrappy friends Claire and Zoe, and I had a takeaway pizza for dinner. I took the photo and went home and posted it on facebook. Zoe saw it and said “you need to print this and scrap it for the social media challenge!”. So what I did was print three copies, one for each one of us, and all three of us scrapped the same photo! The results were so different too!

Here is my take:

And this is the magic of retreats, this layout was put together thanks to the generosity of my friends! Someone lent me the spatula to apply the paste, somebody else lent me the Heidi Shine Sprays, and someone else gave me the Emoji Love card and lent me the smiley face stamp. Team work!!

Scrapbook layout – Picture perfect

Hi friends!

This is the third and last layout that I made at the Scrap Cafe crop on Saturday. I used papers from the “Tealightful” collection by Pebbles, and the embellishments are mainly Cocoa Vanilla Studio, from the “Love Always” collection. Both purchased from Lottie Loves Paper.

I had to retouch the mixed media under the papers once I got home, as what I added at the crop was mainly hidden by the papers. And as you can see, I went fro a cream textured cardstock, rather than pure white and I think it looks great!

Here it is:

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!
