Scrapping 4 Fun Design Team – Enjoy Today

Hi all!

Excited news today! I have made it into the Design Team for Scrapping 4 Fun challenges! It is a very varied group of talented ladies, with all kinds of techniques and styles, so I am so excited to bring a bit of “mariastyle” to the table!

The first challenge that I am participating on is #98 and it’s all about techniques. The technique that I am using on this layout is Stamping directly on the page.

I got out all my stamps (I don’t have that many, trust me!) and my versafine ink (my favourite!) and got stamping! I left like a semicircle of white space for my photo, but other than that I pretty much filled up all of the space! I am so pleased with how it turned out! This technique works better with photopolymer stamps and a clear block, because then you can clearly see where you are going to be stamping. I don’t think this technique would work well with wood-mount stamps.

Scrapbooking layout – Just be yourself

Hello everyone!

Today’s layout I made for a challenge on the Mind the Scrap group. This week’s challenge is to scraplift other ladies participating in the event. There have been 5 weeks of challenges so far, although this one is my first week participating, so there are plenty of layouts to scraplift!

This is my layout:

I used the Felicity Jane “London” collection, and I am so happy that I have been able to make two layouts so far with this collection which are quite masculine!

Here’s a close up of that mini cluster at the bottom. The puffy camera is soooo gorgeous! I have a few of them that came in one of my Lottie Loves Paper kits, but I have no idea where they are from!

Scrapbook layout – Amigos de COU

Hi all!

Today’s layout has been made for the extra special “All 13 letters” ABC challenge on For the Love of Pretty Paper. We are on week 13 of our ABC challenge, and as an extra we have asked people to include all the elements that we have drawn so far:

Buttons, red, tags, food, material, journey, diagonal, wood, gold, numbers, languages, squares & kraft.

And here is my layout:

The less obvious items are:

Wood – there’s a wood button on the bottom right corner.
Gold – there’s gold in the “COU” alphas, in the twine in the tag and two little gold enamel shapes.
Material – the twine in the tag
Diagonal – two squares have been folded on their diagonal
Journey – the journalling describes part of my life journey

I used the Rough & Tumble collection again, as it was still on my desk from having used it on my “You Shine” layout just the other day. I thought the colours were great with this photo too!

There is a little red button under the photo in the layout above that I was not happy at all with, so after taking that photo I actually removed the button. Unfortunately, the paper underneath reaped a bit, so I added some word stickers.
