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!

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!

Throw Back Thursday – Places I’ve called Home

Hello! For today’s Throw Back Thursday I bring you a layout that I made last month. I have only recently finished doing the stitching though! This is my first double layout on 12×12 ever! And I am so happy with how it’s turned out!

I am still using up the remaining bits and pieces from the Take Me Away kit that I got at the Paige Evans workshop. I remember thinking that the price of the workshop was quite high, but I’ve had so many bits leftover that it’s been totally worth it!

This double layout is for my Book of Me scrapbook and it is all about the places where I have lived and that I have got to call “home”. The paper with the map of Europe was just perfect and the moment I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The paper with the houses was also perfect to fill up the background on the other page. I added a tiny bit of watercolour underneath the photos, but only a tiny bit to give it a bit of interest but without taking focus off the images.

Throw Back Thursday – First Communion Order

Approximately in September last year a Spanish friend of mine contacted me, saying that one of her friends was looking for someone to make decorations for the Sweets Table at her daughters’ first communion.

And because it was a good friend asking, I said yes, despite the fact that I had stopped taking commissions for personalised orders a few months back.

The order was quite big although not too complicated. It consisted of a couple of large name buntings and lots of cupcake/cake toppers with different wording. In addition to that, I also threw in another cake topper that reads “nuestra primera comunión” – our first communion.

And here are the photos!

The order was delivered at the beginning of the month, and my friend’s friend is very please with it 🙂
