Scrapbooking Layout – A letter to my father

Hello everyone!

This is a very small Throw Back Thursday, since the layout is only two weeks old! But I completely forgot to blog about it when I finished it, so here it finally is!

I started this page ages ago, in May… I applied gesso to the patterned paper background and then smeared some gold paint. Unfortunately, I hated the final result. Some people said to not give up and keep adding layers of mixed media. And that’s what I did. I wanted to make a layout about my dad, and because of the content of the letter, I knew I wanted the layout to be messy… hence I rescued the page.

So I added lots of ink sprays, modelling paste, more paint, splatters, stamping… And now I actually love how it’s turned out!

Here it is:

I know this is not my usual style, but I love getting messy with mixed media from time to time!

Layout Lookback video on youtube

Hi all!

I am still in Spain, but I thought I would post a video that I uploaded to youtube the other day with all the layouts that I created in the month of June. I actually love making these videos every month or so, as it gives me another opportunity to look at them before I put them away in the albums!

Here is the video. I’ll be back soon, and already have some layouts planned for when I’m home!

PS: Youtube allows me to schedule videos and create custom thumbnails… Cool!! I was looking forward to that and it has finally happened!

Read you soon!

Throw Back Thursday – Pastafarian in the making

Hello everyone!

I don’t have anything new to show you today, and since it is Thursday, I thought I would do a #tbt and showcase a layout from my 8×8 days. I have only been scrapbooking on12x12 size since the beginning of this year but it already feels like a million years ago!

This layout is super fun and I have chosen it because (I had never posted it here before…) it shows quite well how you can make the most of 8×8 pages. It’s got two photos, tons of alphas for the long title and a journalling card! You can’t ask for more 🙂

Here it is and I hope you like it!

Youtube video – Layout look back

Hello lovely likers!

I am about to put all my completed projects into page protectors and albums, so I thought it would be a good idea to film one of those flip throughs or lookbacks or whatever they are called. Unfortunately when I started doing the video voiceover, my throat was really sore and I kept coughing. I hope people are not too putt off by this!

Anyway, here it is and I hope you enjoy it!

Read you soon,

Throw Back Thursday – Thanks card

Hello everyone!

What a busy few days, eh? I have posted brand new projects and layouts almost every day for the last 8 days!! Time for a rest 🙂 That’s why I thought today I would bring you a Throw Back Thursday with a card from a couple of years ago.

I made this card for the carers of my twins at nursery. Eric and Elisa were moving to the next class at nursery and the carers had done such a great job with them that I felt like I needed to say Thanks (and also gave them a massive box of chocolates, they deserved them!).

Thanks card

I still love this card. Sometimes I look at some of my early creations and I cringe a bit, but you can see that by now (this is May 2015) my style had evolved pretty much to where it is now. I used my scrapbooking supplies, like thickers and cardstock.

Anyway, I hope you like it and read you very soon!
