I’ve got a very special layout for you today as it has been created for National Scrapbooking Day! The lovely Natalie, who is admin on For the Love of Pretty Paper, asked me to collaborate with one layout for one of the challenges that they are organising for NSD and I was more than happy to oblige! The challenge is to make a layout without using trimmers or die cut machines, etc… Just you and your scissors!
And here is my layout:
I fussy cut all the speech bubbles which are from Shimelle’s latest collection and I also cut by hand the background paper!
And I also have a YouTube process video for you!
I hope you will join us with all the super challenges that they have organised for the weekend!
Hello lovely friends!
Today I bring you a very quick layout that I created earlier this week for a mini challenge over at Lottie Loves Paper. Here is my layout and the sketch that it was inspired by:
And the sketch:
For this layout I used mainly Shimelle’s True Stories collection and some circle die cuts that I already had in my “odd shapes” box 🙂

I hope you have liked this layout and thanks for popping by!
Hello lovely likers! It’s the Easter holidays! Have you got anything interesting planned? And more importantly, will you be doing any scrapbooking?
Today I bring you another process video, and this time I have been a brave big girl and done a voice over! I hate my voice (like everyone else does, I suppose) but I decided it was time to face my fears.
The layout is about a mini break that my husband and I took in Exeter last week. I think this is the fastest “camera to layout” page I’ve ever done. We came back on Wednesday and by Friday I had already printed the photos! That’s a first!! The page was inspired by one of the UK Scrap Addicts designers and her page with hand stitching. Here’s her layout that inspired me.
Anyway, here’s a photo of the page and for more details, please see the video below!
Thanks for watching and read you soon!
Today I am playing aling with Stuck! Sketches, with their mid month sketch challenge. And this is the layout I came up with!
This is the sketch that the layout is based on:
I used Shimelle’s True Stories collection (still my most favourite collection of hers!) and a tiny bit of Echo Park Paper Crative Agenda. The thickers are Rainboots and Marquee. I hand stitched a border around the page using some Stampin Up floss that I got with a card kit ages ago I just felt the colour was a good match with the papers!
The photos are not the best photos, however I really wanted to scrap them because they are from a very sweet moment that I shared with my daughter. Our twins spend 99% of their time together, so this was one of these rare moments when I was just with her and we were playing around 🙂

Hi all! I attended my first scrapbooking crop of the year last weekend in Hursley. I was sat at a different table than usual, and as I didn’t really know the ladies, I didn’t join in the conversation much, so I just got on with my scrapbooking! I managed to finish 5 layouts, which is great going!
The next few blog posts will feature said layouts, and here is the first!
I cannot tell you how happy I am with this. This is probably my favourite layout so far ever. It is colourful, bright, and the photo of my son is just so cute! I know the grey background may seem a little odd to start with, but it has got a shine to it and it is not as dark as it may seem. Plus the grey coordinates greatly with the black and white photo!
This layout I made almost exclusively with the Lottie Loves Paper December kit plus Shimelle’s Starshine 6×6 paper pad. The only things that came from my stash were the “happy stamps” and the background cardstock.
Here are a few close ups:
By the way, there is some journalling… it’s just at the back of the cardstock! I didn’t want to “spoil” the look of the layout by adding my dodgy handwriting in the front 🙂
