Scrapbooking Layout – My Sweet Little Pirate

Hi all! Here’s another layout from my last crop.

My sweet little pirate is about how my daughter, completely out of the blue, decided one day that she wanted to play dress up… She never wants to play dress up… Even now, months after the event, she never wants to play dress up. So I thought that this memorable occasion needed to be kept forever! She even smiled for the camera!

As you can see, this layout is very minimalist, and I mostly used Echo Park’s “Pirate’s Life” Element Stickers. The glitter thickers are “Eclair”, and the other alphas from my stash.

I hope you like it and read you soon!

Scrapbooking Layout – It’s all about the ponytail

Hello all! I hope you’re having a good weekend so far!

Today I bring you a layout that I created earlier this week for the Sketchy Scrappers group on Facebook. Their mid-month challenge was to create a layout inspired on a Valentine’s card that one of the admins had received.

And this is my take on it! I took inspiration from the grid layout and the flowers in the card, and I used Paige Evans’ Take Me Away for the papers, thickers and embellishments. The other alphas came from my stash, I can’t remember which manufacturer right now.

As you can see, I also did a bit of white splatters; unfortunately they got a bit all over the place, but I am actually quite pleased with how the layout looks.

And a couple of closeups:

Scrapbooking process – Sunshine and smiles

Hello all!

On Sunday last week I managed to get a little break from the chaos in my house and sat down to create a layout. I originally wanted to follow a sketch that I found on the UK Scrappers forum, however, after looking at it for ages I decided to go with my own flow and see what happened!

UKS challenge

So as you can see, I started following the sketch by adding some washi tape however that’s where all resemblance with the sketch ends! I am happy that I followed my flow as I am very happy with the finished product.

The surrounding background paper is from Simple Stories “Whatever” collection. The washi tapes are from Ikea! (yes! Ikea do washi tape too!) and the rest of the embellishments are from Fancy Pants “Life is Beautiful” Collection.

Scrapbooking Layout – Take me for a ride

Another layout that I created on Saturday night. This is probably one of my most favourite layouts recently! I looked on Pinterest for inspiration and saw a couple of layouts that used very geometrical backgrounds, and that was it. I knew exactly what I wanted to do!

For the papers, I used Studio Calico “Atlantic” Collection. I bought this paper pad ages ago and haven’t almost used it, so I forced myself to use some old stash (kind of to justify all the new goodies that I have been buying recently!)

The photos are layered with papers from First Edition “Paradise Crush” and also a paper cut from Heidi Swapp which I trimmed to fit the photos.

The embellishments are from Simple Stories “Heart” collection – I felt the colours coordinated quite nicely with the papers.

I hope you like it and read you soon!

Scrapbooking layout – Fifty shades of cool

Hello all! On Saturday night I ditched my husband and locked myself in my craft room for some scrapbooking! The idea was to find a sketch or challenge to participate in. I watched a Shimelle video recently that mentioned challenges in blogs, and I felt curious. I asked in the facebook group for advice and got several pages where I can find challenges. However, after what it felt like a long time, I realised that I didn’t fancy doing that and all I wanted to do was my own stuff!

So I managed to finish two layouts, which is great, although I went to bed so late! But totally worth it. I am so happy with how they came up.

Today I bring you “Fifty shades of cool“. The main papers in this layout are from My Mind’s Eye “Boy Crazy” collection. I did some white splattering (I mixed acrylic paint with watercolour – just because I knew watercolour alone wouldn’t show much) and also added some black enamel dots (Dovecraft 3D enamel effects)

The embellishments are mainly from Simple Stories “Whatever” collection and the title is made with a mix and match selection from my stash (the big thickers are from the “Regards” collection)

And here it is! It is quite minimal, but I really wanted to play with the title and make it the focal point (other than the photo, of course!)
