Scrapbook layout – Rider

Hello everyone! Today I’ve got a layout that I’ve created with a sketch from the Stick it Down blog. It’s a very interesting sketch, and the layouts that I have seen created with it are very diverse… people have really taken very different interpretations!

This is my layout:

And this is the sketch:

I had these three strips of scraps leftover from a previous project and I promised myself that I was going to use them rather than throw them away (like a few people suggested!) so here they are! I have used mainly Paige Evans Oh My Heart collection, as I still have tons left!

Silhouette UK blog – Sketch and cut in software version 4

Hello everyone!

I am on the Silhouette UK blog today with a tutorial on how to use the sketch pens in the new Version 4 of the software. I only updraded to version 4 the day before yesterday, so it was interesting finding my way around in the new interface! Some features are more straightforward now, but others are harder to find! And yes, you guessed it right, sketching in different colours was one of those harder-to-find features!

Anyway, please join me on the blog for the step by step tutorial, and I hope it’s useful for you!

Scrapbooking Layout – Miss Purple Hands

Hello all!

Here’s another layout that I made last week for the Lottie Loves Paper mini challenge, based on a sketch by Shimelle. The sketch is perfect for lots of journalling so I thought it was time that I told the story of my love-hate relationship with my daughters love for the colour pink 🙂

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

I have used mostly Echo Park Paper “Creative Agenda” collection. The thickers are from the Take me Away collection by Pink Paislee.

Scrapbooking Layout – It’s my stick

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:

It's my stick

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 🙂

Cyber Krop

Hello everyone!

So yesterday afternoon/evening I got to participate in an online crop. It was like doing NSD all over again! It was actually great fun, because it was done with a very small group of people (I would say there were about 15 of us participating yesterday) so it felt cozy and very personal. The Cyber Krop was hosted by Katie and Julie, who run the Inspired by Memories group on Facebook.

There were 5 challenges yesterday but I only managed to make 4, which is amazing due to time constrictions and having the kids in the house in the afternoon, and then having to have dinner, and put them to bed and all of that! I did something that I hadn’t done in a very long time and scrapped well into the night! I went to bed at almost 1am!!!

So here are the challenges and my layouts:

Challenge 1: Make a layout inspired by the sketch below, with one rule: Ripped paper! (I don’t “do” ripped paper, so I kept it to a minimum)

You lift my heart up

Challenge 2: Theme is The Outdoors, and the layout must include 3 embelishment clusters, Layers, A hand cut title, buttons
and enamel dots and/or bling.

Explore

Challenge 3: Theme is “Let’s Eat”

Thai red fish curry

Challenge 4: Choose a title from these 3 words: Grow, change or thrilled. Use at least 3 of these mixed media techniques: stitching, gelatos, watercolours, mists, inks, enamel (and a few more that I can’t remember right now)

So thrilled

I didn’t get to even start thinking about challenge 5, and there will be a few more this afternoon, so we’ll see how many I get done in the end!
