Scrapbooking Layout – Breeding Lice

Hello once again!

Today I bring you the last installment of my Chinese Whispers game!

For this set, my layout was the last in the series, and this series is the one where each layout is almost unrecognisable from the previous one and no resemblance to the original sketch!

Here is the sketch:

First take on the sketch by Michelle:

Who then passed it on to Lis:

Who then passed it to Helen:

And finally, my take on Helen’s layout:

This layout was hilarious to make, and a couple of people have commented on scrapbooking something so gross. But, hey, why not? Why scrapbook about first steps, first words, first everythings… So first lice infestation too! 😀

Thanks for joining me today and read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Magnificent Theatre

Hello again!

Today I bring you another layout from the Chinese whispers game I was telling you about yesterday. This is one of my most favourite layouts recently, I just love how well the black background works!

I was third on this round, so here are the sketch and the other layouts in order:

By Lis

By Helen

My layout

By Michelle

Unlike my set yesterday where all layouts stayed very similar to the original sketch, this set has changed so much from the first one to the last! Great evolution!

I hope you have liked it and read you very soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – Lego caterpillar

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

Today’s layout is part of a crafty game that I took part on the Mind The Scrap group, called Chinese Whispers. The concept is very simple: One person creates a layout based on a sketch, then sends it to person number 2 to scraplift, who then passes on to person three and then four (or as many people as you want in your group!). There were four of us in my group.

So today I am going to show you the first set of Chinese whispers that started with me. I based my layout on a sketch I found on Pinterest, and created my layout with my June Lottie Loves Paper kit. Here it is:

And here is the sketch:

I then passed on my layout to Helen, she passed hers to Lis, who passed hers to Michelle. Here are the next three:

And a close up of my layout so you can see the painted wood heart:

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!
