This is my last layout as DT member for Scrapping 4 fun challenges… 🙁 It’s been a great quarter, however, I no longer have the time I used to have to scrapping, and I don’t want it to become a chore, so I decided to not reapply for another term. Maybe in the near future I will get time and I can become part of the team again!
My last challenge as DT member is a Christmas layout! It is December already and that means Christmas!
I have scrapped a photo from last year’s Christmas Eve, when we had lobster for dinner and the twins wouldn’t stop playing with the claws!
Thanks for joining me today and ready you very very soon!
We have a super fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge over at Scrapping 4 Fun challenges this month!
This is my layout:
And here’s the tic-tac-toe. As you can see, I’ve gone for the left vertical line: Twine, bling and sequins 🙂
And a little close up of the sequins, bling and twine:
The papers are from Felicity Jane, but I forget the name of the collection!! And the embellishments are mainly from Simple Stories.
Thanks for joining me today, and read you very soon!
Here is another layout I have made for the Scrapping4fun Design Team! This month’s challenge was to use a sketch… and I love sketches! The real challenge for me was the fact that the sample sketch that we were given was for a double page layout and I don’t really do double page layouts! So I had to use my imagination and “translate” the sketch into a single page layout. I think I did quite well! I’ll let you be the judge. Here’s my layout and the sketch!
So, what do you think? As I wanted to use so many photos in such a “small” space, I really had to go minimal so as to not overload the layout. That’s why I kept the pattern papers away, pretty much, and stuck to solid colours.
And a couple of close ups:
Thanks for popping by and read you very – very – soon!
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.

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!
