Scrapbooking Layout – Let’s wander (youtube video)

Hello everyone!

I had a bit of time for a layout earlier, and since I was also home alone, I decided to make a video! The layout it’s based on the single page sketch for Stick it Down, and I had lots of fun making it!

I used papers from Shimelle’s first collection and other Shimelle embellishments from other collections and I am so happy with how it’s turned out! Here it is:

I had a tiny accident when splattering the black Heidi Shine, and I smeared a tiny bit in the circle embellishment, however I managed to clean it a bit. You can still see it, but not too noticeable.

And here are a couple of closeups:

Scrapbooking Layout – Horse riding

Hello all!

Today’s layout has been made using Stuck? Sketches August 1st sketch. It is a lovely sketch and the layouts by the design team are truly inspiring!

This is my layout:

I used the “Just be you” collection by Echo Park Paper. I have only used this collection in one other layout and I thought it was time to get it out again!

Something that bothered me a lot about this layout is that I don’t remember the date when these photos were taken! I know it was a special date, like an anniversary but I have no idea of which year! So it could be 2008, before we got married, or it could be 2010 for our first wedding anniversary… Not sure! I have been looking at other photos to see if I have my hair in a similar style, so I can recognise the date, but it’s proving difficult! Unfortunately the date stamp in the digital photos is wrong (it says 01.01.2008), so I’m so gutted! Hopefully, Jon will be able to help me figure it out and then I can add the date under the stamped word “Lyndhurst”.

Here are a couple more close ups:

Layout Lookback video on YouTube (July 2017)

Hi all!

It is not quite the end of the month, but I know I am not going to be making much more before August arrives, so I thought I would get my Layout Lookback video done today 🙂 July wasn’t as busy as May (I don’t think I’ll get another busy month like that again!) but I still managed quite a few layouts.

Here they all are:

Scrapbooking Layout – Spanish cakes are the best ever (YouTube video)

Hello everyone! I think this is going to be my last layout of the month unless I manage to get something else done at the weekend!

So today’s layout is inspired on Stick it Down‘s July single page sketch. As you will see from the video below, I started the layout following the sketch quite closely, but when it came to putting my photos down, I decided to rotate it. This means, though, that the stars at the top are not very straight, but this does not bother me too much.

I decided to use lots of washi tape. There was a conversation on FTLOPP about washi tape, and I realised how little I use mine, so I picked my favourite colour combination and made stars out of them 🙂

Here’s my layout, and the video!

Scrapbooking Layout – Canterbury 1996 (youtube video)

Hi friends!

The other day I made this layout for one of this month’s sketch challenges over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. I was really drawn to the sketch I chose because of the use of multiple photos.

Here is my layout and the sketch:
