Well, both this blog and my YouTube channel are one year old! I have no idea where time has gone, but here we are, we year on and still loving blogging and making videos!
To celebrate the first anniversary, I asked the girls on For the Love of Pretty Paper to come up with questions and here it is! I hope the video is not too long and that you enjoy it!
Thanks for visiting!
Today’s layout has been made for the new letter prompt on For the Love of Pretty Paper’s ABC challenge. This week the letter is S and S is for Squares! We want people to feature squares on their layouts. Be it small squares or large ones, one or many… Up to you!
I have created quite a few “squarey” layouts lately, so today I wanted to make something a bit different and I decided to create just one big square as the main focus of the layout. I have used Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Wild at heart” collection, which is so gorgeous!
Here’s my layout and video! I hope you’ll watch!

I am on the Silhouette UK Blog today with a quick tutorial on how to fill in text with patterns. This is ideal if you don’t have the right paper for your layout. The Silhouette Store has lots of printable patterns!
Please come over and have a look!

Today’s layout I made for a challenge over at the Mercy Tiara group. It was a tough challenge, I tell you!
The “recipe” was:
1. A theme of music and/or movies. This can be about a favourite song or movie or just a song or movie title as the title for the layout or even song lyrics or a quote from a movie
2. A grid style in part or all of the layout
3. Something black & white
5. A simple outline or sillouhette image, this can be stamped, stencilled or hand drawn
6. I’m scared to say it, but …. No letter stickers!
In addition to this list, there was also a tic tac toe challenge to go with it, and I also incorporated a line from the tic tac toe: Use a frame, stitching and use a list on your journalling.
And here it is! Unfortunately, these colours are hard to photograph!
Thanks for popping by and see you very soon!
This is a very small Throw Back Thursday, since the layout is only two weeks old! But I completely forgot to blog about it when I finished it, so here it finally is!
I started this page ages ago, in May… I applied gesso to the patterned paper background and then smeared some gold paint. Unfortunately, I hated the final result. Some people said to not give up and keep adding layers of mixed media. And that’s what I did. I wanted to make a layout about my dad, and because of the content of the letter, I knew I wanted the layout to be messy… hence I rescued the page.
So I added lots of ink sprays, modelling paste, more paint, splatters, stamping… And now I actually love how it’s turned out!
Here it is:
I know this is not my usual style, but I love getting messy with mixed media from time to time!
