Hello! This is the fourth layout that I created at the crop on Saturday. Despite having decided that I need to create more layouts of my daughter, I ended up creating two of my son and only one of my daughter! Next time I need to take just photos of Elisa so I avoid the temptation!
This is a very simple layout but I love how effective it is. I sprayed the background with some ink sprays (two Heidi Shines and one Tim Holtz, which is not as shiny as Heidi’s) and then used some Simple Stories’ DIY Boutique collection papers for a monochromatic feel. I added a few enamel shapes from the new Pinkfresh Studio No. 1 Mix, which are awesome!
Thanks for looking and read you soon!
Another layout that I created on Saturday night. This is probably one of my most favourite layouts recently! I looked on Pinterest for inspiration and saw a couple of layouts that used very geometrical backgrounds, and that was it. I knew exactly what I wanted to do!
For the papers, I used Studio Calico “Atlantic” Collection. I bought this paper pad ages ago and haven’t almost used it, so I forced myself to use some old stash (kind of to justify all the new goodies that I have been buying recently!)
The photos are layered with papers from First Edition “Paradise Crush” and also a paper cut from Heidi Swapp which I trimmed to fit the photos.
The embellishments are from Simple Stories “Heart” collection – I felt the colours coordinated quite nicely with the papers.
I hope you like it and read you soon!
Hello all! On Saturday night I ditched my husband and locked myself in my craft room for some scrapbooking! The idea was to find a sketch or challenge to participate in. I watched a Shimelle video recently that mentioned challenges in blogs, and I felt curious. I asked in the facebook group for advice and got several pages where I can find challenges. However, after what it felt like a long time, I realised that I didn’t fancy doing that and all I wanted to do was my own stuff!
So I managed to finish two layouts, which is great, although I went to bed so late! But totally worth it. I am so happy with how they came up.
Today I bring you “Fifty shades of cool“. The main papers in this layout are from My Mind’s Eye “Boy Crazy” collection. I did some white splattering (I mixed acrylic paint with watercolour – just because I knew watercolour alone wouldn’t show much) and also added some black enamel dots (Dovecraft 3D enamel effects)
The embellishments are mainly from Simple Stories “Whatever” collection and the title is made with a mix and match selection from my stash (the big thickers are from the “Regards” collection)
And here it is! It is quite minimal, but I really wanted to play with the title and make it the focal point (other than the photo, of course!)
And a couple of close ups
Read you soon,
Hello! Today I bring you one of my latest layouts. This page was so quick to make! It is a scraplift directly from the Simple Stories blog. The fabulous background paper is called “No worries” and it’s just perfect for a cute little boy layout.
The background paper already has got so many elements that I didn’t feel the need to add much more, so I only added a couple of details here and there, but without making it so busy. The big “Loved This” thickers are from Dear Lizzy’s Saturday collection. There is also some ephemera from the Cool Kid collection.
And not much more to to add about this layout! I just love how easy it was to put together and how effective it looks!
And a close up:
Thanks for reading!
My first unboxing video ever…. Here I go!
I’ll be totally honest, I very rarely watch unboxing videos on youtube. I will only watch them if they are of a collection or kit that I am interested in, and I want to know exactly what’s included.
However, I also thought it would be interesting to film myself unboxing the order I placed yesterday and record my reaction as well!
This is my first crafty video ever. I hope they get better with time! (first lesson I’ve learnt: don’t film vertically!)
