Hello and welcome again to my blog!
Today I am bringing you another layout that I created at the Scrap Cafe in Bracknell last weekend. This layout is a scraplift from the amazing Zoe Guest, a layout from her “stretch that collection” series. Her layout is called The Good Life and you can find it here.
By the way, did you know that Zoe did one of the most amazing things last month? She made her own version of March Madness, creating a brand new video every-single-day! Really incredible stuff. I bet she has raised quite a few bob for MIND!
So this is my layout that was inspired by her page:
And a couple more close ups:
Claire (Scrappy Nerd UK) helped me with the ruffling of the edges. I was trying to do it myself with a craft knife (I bite my nails, so I had no “self-tool” to do it!) but I was worried that I might damage the cardstock underneath. But she came to the rescue!
The papers used in the background and for backing my photo are from Dear Lizzy Saturday collection. The embellishments are a bit mixed. The happy faces and the word Super in the title are from Heidi Swapp and there are other elements from Kaisercraft and other bits and pieces from my stash.
I hope you have enjoyed this layout and read you soon!
Today I am participating in a new challenge. This time is for the Scrappin4fun blog, and this time the challenge is to use old stash. And man, have I used old stash! Yes I have!!
And here is my layout:
It is a scraplift from this gorgeous page that I found on Pinterest, and the materials used are:
- Everyday Moments by Recollections papers (and they were all scrap papers too! Not a single new page was cut!)
- Buttons and brads from my stash, which I have had for literally years!
- The title is made with Prima alphabet stickers and Making Memories shimmer alphas (does Making Memories even exist any more!?) that I’ve had for a long long time!
And a couple more close ups:
I hope you have liked it and thanks for visiting!
Yesterday I attended my second crop of the month (gasp!) and it was with the lovely Artful Angels ladies. This is one of the layouts that I made at the crop, and it is a scraplift from the lovely Sarah, who attends the crop and who is also the owner of Lottie Loves Paper, where I get my monthly embellishment kit from.
This is her layout which I scraplifted:
And this is my take on it!
The background stripey paper is from Kaisercraft “Back to basics” collection, and the butterflies are cut from my 6×6 Crate Paper “Chasing Dreams” paper pad. The “adventure” copper thicker is from Shimelle’s “Go Now Go” collection, and the other alphas are Basic Grey from my stash (similar to these ones)
I added some watercolour to the white cardstock using the packaging technique, and I also matted my photo in some pink and gold paper from my stash (do not know the manufacturer).
This is the very first photo that I have scrapbooked about my wedding, and I have really surprised myself using pinks, as the main colour scheme of my wedding was turquoise/teal and black… Maybe I will scrap another photo in those colours another time 🙂
A couple of close ups more:
I hope you’ve liked this layout and I hope to read you soon!
