Birthday cards

Hello!

Today I bring you two birthday cards! A long time ago I was an avid cardmaker, but when I discovered scrapbooking, cards took a hit and got a tad forgotten. I still make cards for very special people, however not as often as I used to. However, my kids have been invited to lots of birthday parties next month, so I thought that with a bit of planning I could make a few of them.

For these two cards, I have followed a sketch from Stick it Down blog. In the past I have taken inspiration from other cards on Pinterest or in the Stampin Up catalogue, but I don’t think I ever followed a sketch before! So definitely this was a first!

These are today’s cards and the sketch they were based on:

Happy birthday - 4

I hope you have liked these cards. There may be a couple more in a few days!

Scrapbook Layout – Just Like Dad

Hello! Today I am super excited to announce that I am guest designing for Stick It Down!

Here’s my layout:

Just like dad

And this is the sketch that it is based on:

SID April sketch

For this layout I used Project Life cards that I trimmed and cut. I have tons of Project Life cards but I am never going to do PL however the cards are super handy to use on layouts. You can use them for backing photos, or trim them and use the sentiments as I have done here.

Here are a couple more close ups:

I want to thank Ashley from Stick it Down for giving me this amazing opportunity to guest design. I have loved working with this sketch and I look forward to playing along with more sketches on the blog!

I hope you have liked this layout, and read you soon!

Scrapbooking layout – Favourite hair

Hi all!

Today I am participating in two challenges. One over at Stick it Down with a sketch by Laura Rumble (I must say that it is not an easy one! It really took some thinking and some playing around until I found a layout that would work for me) and as the layout is so Monochromatic, I will also be entering it in the Colorful Creations mid-month challenge 🙂

Here is the sketch:

And here is the layout that I came up with!

Favourite hair

This layout is goint to go in “the book of me“. When I created my Crazy Hair Don’t Care layout recently, I had to make it without any photos of my blue hair, as I couldn’t find any decent ones anywhere (I did find two, but they were scans of not so clear images, so they didn’t print very well) But a couple of weeks after making that layout I finally found this photo of me with blue hair! Yay! I absolutely loved my hair like this, and sometimes I wish I had the guts to have it done again! Unfortunately I am not 20 years old any more….

The papers are from Echo Park Creative Agenda. The tickers are Fitzgerald and the heart stencils are from The Happy Scatter, a shop on Etsy and the lady who runs it is a fellow scrapbooker from the UK! And that is pretty much it! The layout is so simple! I created the paste to put through the stencil with modelling paste and ink sprays. To get this colour, I mixed Turquoise Shimmer Mister, Teal Heidi Shine and a touch (literally, one drop) of Mr Huey’s Double Yellow. I am very pleased with how well the paste coordinates with the papers.

Scrapbooking Layout – Il Mafioso

Hello!

This layout has been created to participate in the February Challenge over at the Stick It Down blog. This is the first time that I am participating, so I have no idea whether I am doing it properly 😀

This is the sketch for the challenge:

stick it down challenge

And this is my take on it!

Il mafioso

All the circles are from the Studio Calico “Atlantic” collection. It is an old one, and I have been forcing myself to use my old stash… as a way to justify all my newer purchases! There are also a few Shimelle wood buttons from her Go Now Go collection and some enamel dots from my stash.

The title is done with the pink paislee C’est La Vie alphas, which I love how big they are! My title is not that long, but the alphas fill almost the whole length of the page!

One more close up:
