Scrapbook layout – Scrappy squad eats pizza

Hello friends!

I attended to Scrap Cafe retreat at the weekend and I had a great time! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to stay overnight in the hotel, which means my scrappy time was slightly reduced. But I still managed 9 layouts, which I am quite happy about (my personal target was 10, but I lost my mojo at the end).

This layout here is one of the last ones I made and one of my most favourite. On Saturday night my scrappy friends Claire and Zoe, and I had a takeaway pizza for dinner. I took the photo and went home and posted it on facebook. Zoe saw it and said “you need to print this and scrap it for the social media challenge!”. So what I did was print three copies, one for each one of us, and all three of us scrapped the same photo! The results were so different too!

Here is my take:

And this is the magic of retreats, this layout was put together thanks to the generosity of my friends! Someone lent me the spatula to apply the paste, somebody else lent me the Heidi Shine Sprays, and someone else gave me the Emoji Love card and lent me the smiley face stamp. Team work!!

Scrapbook Layout – Just for Fun

Hello all!

As we say goodbye to the month of June, I thought I would share a layout that I made for June’s monthly challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. I set the challenge and it was a moodboard, but not a fancy one like the ones on Pinterest, but a very “homely” one! The moodboard was entirely made with objects from my home 🙂

This is the moodboard:

And this is my layout:

I think it is very easy to see where I got the inspiration from! I actually loved making such a mess with the white paint and I thought the photos really suited the layout.

I used embellishments from Simple Stories, and the “just for fun” is from a thickers pack that I painted over. They were originally pink, but I didn’t think that shade of pink suited the layout.

I hope you have enjoyed it and thanks for popping over!

Scrapbooking Layout – Well fed dolls

Hello friends!

Today I am on the All Day Crop in Bracknell, so I expect I will be creating quite a few layouts to show you next week! However, before that, I want to show you the layout that I created for the new weekly ABC challenge on For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week the letter is F and F is for Food!

This is the perfect opportunity to use all those food embellishments that I very rarely use, like pineapples, cupcakes, strawberries, etc.

And here is my first layout!

I used a mixed of brands on this layout. The spotty paper is Echo Park Paper, the navy blue is Dear Lizzy, the embellishments are Simple Stories “posh” and the alphas are Hazel Thickers and Freckled Fawn. I love mixing up collections!

And a close up of the photo. Such a cute photo of the twins feeding “their babies” 🙂

Scrapbooking layout – Super cool jeep

Hello everyone, and welcome again to my blog!

There was another mini challenge last night again on the Lottie Loves Paper facebook group, with a new sketch, and I played along!

This is my layout and the sketch it’s based on:

Super cool jeep

For this layout I used a new Echo Park collection called Just be you. I bought it recently and I thought I should use it rather than hoard it like I would normally do! It’s a really pretty collection with a darker green than I am used to, but I thought it suited these photos quite well any way. And I only used the collection! Apart from the date stamp and the little phrase stickers, every single item on this layout came from the pack! That’s so unusual for me!

Here are a couple more close ups:

Scrapbooking Layout – Wells

Hello lovely likers!

Today I bring you a brand new layout about my recent day trip to Wells. Wells is England’s smallest city, and it is only considered a city because of the Cathedral! It is otherwise a very small town 🙂

I originally printed these photos to make a double page layout, but after playing a bit with the sketch that I wanted to follow, I changed my mind and started from scratch with this single page. I have kept it very simple, as I didn’t want to take any attention away from the photos. I have used Simple Stories “Heart” collection for the papers and there are only a couple of other elements which are also Simple Stories. The big title letters are from Pink Paislee “C’est la vie”. As the title has turned out quite big, I will be entering this layout on the April challege on In The Scrap.

And here is my layout and a few closeups:
