Scrapbooking Layout – Pebble Fun

Hi all!

Today I bring you another Chinese Whispers set of layouts! I was second in this sequence, and there is no sketch as far as I know (I’m sure there was one, it’s just that I haven’t seen it)

Here they go:

First one by Helen:

Which I scraplifted:

I then passed it on to Michelle

And last but not least, Lis:

I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Endless Summer collection for my layout, and at the beginning I wasn’t keen on cutting the photos into circles, but I am actually in love with how this layout turned out so I won’t complain! One more close up:

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:

And a close up of my layout so you can see the painted wood heart:

Layout Lookback video on youtube

Hi all!

I am still in Spain, but I thought I would post a video that I uploaded to youtube the other day with all the layouts that I created in the month of June. I actually love making these videos every month or so, as it gives me another opportunity to look at them before I put them away in the albums!

Here is the video. I’ll be back soon, and already have some layouts planned for when I’m home!

PS: Youtube allows me to schedule videos and create custom thumbnails… Cool!! I was looking forward to that and it has finally happened!

Read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Wild and Free

Hello friends!

Here’s another layout from the all day crop last week. This actually started as a scraplift of a Bea Valint layout but it took a bit of a life of its own and they don’t really look like each other much. But that’s ok! I took her layout as a starting point, rather than lifting it completely.

And here it is:

The papers are from the Dear Lizzy Collection “Saturday” and I chose them because of the apples and pears pattern paper, because it meant that the layout could also be part of the F is for Food challenge (although I never entered it last week)

I bought a few craft cardstock sheets at the crop and absolutely love the look and feel of them!

Here’s a close up:

The texture paste I borrowed from my friend Claire and it was very interesting! It wasn’t paste per se, but more like a mousse and it was fun to use! She bought a set of four from either Aldi or Lidl for just £5. That’s a bargain!

I hope you have liked this layout and see you again soon!
