Hello lovely scrapbookers!
I attended the Artful Angels crop yesterday and had a lovely day, however, I was not very productive! I only managed to complete three layouts (although one of them was particularly difficult – I’ll show you that one tomorrow). I blame the girls I sat with… too much chatting!
The first layout that I created is the one that I want to show you today. I prepared the cut file on my Silhouette the night before as I knew what I wanted to do, which is unusual for me! I knew I wanted that design of cut file and I knew I wanted to use my Lottie Loves Paper kit papers. So off I went!
This is my photo:
And a couple of close ups:
As I said above, I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Wild at Heart” collection mainly (it came with my April Lottie Loves Paper kit) and the navy paper with tiny white dots is from Shimelle’s Little by Little, but I felt that it went very well with the other papers and with the dress I am wearing in the photo!
I had a little incident when cutting the pattern paper for backing behind the cut file. I accidentally cut through the branding strip and I didn’t realise until it was way too late, as the glue had hardened and there was no way to remove it without damaging the cardstock! So I ended up covering it with a phrase sticker.
The alphas for “motherly” are also Cocoa Vanilla Studio, from a collection called Color Me Happy. They are white and I used watercolours to do an ombré effect. I love how they turned out! I tried applying watercolours to the foam thicker (“love”) but it didn’t work at all.
I hope you have liked this layout and read you soon!
Hello lovely likers!
Today I bring you a brand new layout about my recent day trip to Wells. Wells is England’s smallest city, and it is only considered a city because of the Cathedral! It is otherwise a very small town 🙂
I originally printed these photos to make a double page layout, but after playing a bit with the sketch that I wanted to follow, I changed my mind and started from scratch with this single page. I have kept it very simple, as I didn’t want to take any attention away from the photos. I have used Simple Stories “Heart” collection for the papers and there are only a couple of other elements which are also Simple Stories. The big title letters are from Pink Paislee “C’est la vie”. As the title has turned out quite big, I will be entering this layout on the April challege on In The Scrap.
And here is my layout and a few closeups:
I hope you have liked this layout, and see you soon!
Today I bring you a brand new mixed media layout which is going on my Book of Me album, and it is all about my current obsession: Twenty One Pilots.
I know the band has been around for years, but I only discovered them at the beginning of 2017. My husband started playing their latest album in the car and although the style is not 100% my taste, I found them really catchy and suddenly fell in love with their music! I say that the style is not entirely my taste, because they have lots of elements of dance music (or “chunda-chunda” as I call it) which I am not keen on. However, the lyrics and more importantly the tunes are amazing, and I absolutely love the singer’s voice.
So this layout is really simple. In microsoft word, I pasted the lyrics to some of my favourite songs from their two latest albums, and send it to print! I have used 280gsm card, as I knew I wanted to do some mixed media and there is a bit of warping, but not too much, so I am quite happy. There is no journalling in this layout, as I think it speaks for itself.
Anyway, here are a couple of photos and a process video! I hope you enjoy it:
Read you soon guys!
Hello lovely likers!
I am about to put all my completed projects into page protectors and albums, so I thought it would be a good idea to film one of those flip throughs or lookbacks or whatever they are called. Unfortunately when I started doing the video voiceover, my throat was really sore and I kept coughing. I hope people are not too putt off by this!
Anyway, here it is and I hope you enjoy it!
Read you soon,
Hello lovely likers!
It just occurred to me that you may not see much happening in here in the next couple of weeks as I get ready for NSD.
What is NSD, I hear you ask? It’s National Scrapbooking Day! Funny it’s called “National”, because it certainly is not just national, but INTERnational! The day started in the US and hence why it’s called National, however this “holiday” has been adopted by many other countries in the world! It will be happening on the weekend of 5th-7th of May.
I am taking place in two separate events (although they are both connected!). The first one is for For the Love of Pretty Paper facebook group. The event starts on Friday evening and finished on Sunday mid afternoon. In these two days there will be lots of challenges, prizes, games and chat. I am taking part in 5 challenges! Since I am hosting, I get to know the challenges in advance and prepare for them.
The second event is for UK Scrap Addicts. This event only takes place on Saturday, but there will also be lots of videos, challenges, prizes and blog posts. I am taking part in five of the challenges, so that means that I am very busy at the moment!
Hopefully you will be able to join us either on Facebook, on the UKSA blog and on YouTube that weekend!
