I hope you are enjoying this fantastic National Scrapbooking Day (aka = weekend!!) I have started early with a superb challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. The challenge is to scrapbook about Spring or Summer, and I just happened to have the best embellishments ever from my latest Lottie Loves Paper kit! I have used the May Stuck? Sketches! sketch so I will be entering my layout there too 🙂
And here it is!
I painted the background with a bit of white acrylic paint to soften it a bit, and I actually love how it’s turned out. I also added some white and yellow splatters. The papers are from a very old Echo Park Paper collection called Spash. And the embellishments are from my Lottie Loves Paper kit, which is super fun and summery!

I hope you have liked it, and thanks for popping over!
Hello everyone and welcome to National Scrapbooking Day!
I really hope you are enjoying all the challenges so far on For the Love of Pretty Paper! For this challenge, I am creating a layout for you to scraplift. A winner from all the entries will be chosen and be given a prize!
So for my layout today I have used the Endless Summer collection exclusively. If you follow me regularly, you will know that it is rare for me to just use one collection and not go through all my stash! But I wanted it to keep it really simple with this layout!
Here are a couple of photos and my YouTube process video! Please come over and say hello!
I really hope you will play along and choose my layout to scraplift! Happy scrapping!
Today I bring you my third and last layout that I created at the Scrap Cafe crop on Saturday. It is all about my dreamy boy!
I am afraid that I did not pay much attention to the materials that I used, so I won’t be able to give you a comprehensive list of items used. However, I do know that the background sheet is from Shimelle’s first collection (which I bought off Lisa Jane at the crop!) and the journalling sticker is from the Cool Kid collection. The rest of the elements are from my stash and I can’t remember the names, sorry!
Here is the main photo:

Anyway, I hope you have liked this layout!
See you very very soon on one of the many National Scrapbooking Day challenges that I will participating in!
Hello lovely scrapbookers!
I attended the Artful Angels crop yesterday and had a lovely day, however, I was not very productive! I only managed to complete three layouts (although one of them was particularly difficult – I’ll show you that one tomorrow). I blame the girls I sat with… too much chatting!
The first layout that I created is the one that I want to show you today. I prepared the cut file on my Silhouette the night before as I knew what I wanted to do, which is unusual for me! I knew I wanted that design of cut file and I knew I wanted to use my Lottie Loves Paper kit papers. So off I went!
This is my photo:
And a couple of close ups:
As I said above, I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Wild at Heart” collection mainly (it came with my April Lottie Loves Paper kit) and the navy paper with tiny white dots is from Shimelle’s Little by Little, but I felt that it went very well with the other papers and with the dress I am wearing in the photo!
I had a little incident when cutting the pattern paper for backing behind the cut file. I accidentally cut through the branding strip and I didn’t realise until it was way too late, as the glue had hardened and there was no way to remove it without damaging the cardstock! So I ended up covering it with a phrase sticker.
The alphas for “motherly” are also Cocoa Vanilla Studio, from a collection called Color Me Happy. They are white and I used watercolours to do an ombré effect. I love how they turned out! I tried applying watercolours to the foam thicker (“love”) but it didn’t work at all.
I hope you have liked this layout and read you soon!
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,
