Excited news today! I have made it into the Design Team for Scrapping 4 Fun challenges! It is a very varied group of talented ladies, with all kinds of techniques and styles, so I am so excited to bring a bit of “mariastyle” to the table!
The first challenge that I am participating on is #98 and it’s all about techniques. The technique that I am using on this layout is Stamping directly on the page.
I got out all my stamps (I don’t have that many, trust me!) and my versafine ink (my favourite!) and got stamping! I left like a semicircle of white space for my photo, but other than that I pretty much filled up all of the space! I am so pleased with how it turned out! This technique works better with photopolymer stamps and a clear block, because then you can clearly see where you are going to be stamping. I don’t think this technique would work well with wood-mount stamps.

Thanks for popping by today and read you very soon!
Today’s layout I made for a challenge on the Mind the Scrap group. This week’s challenge is to scraplift other ladies participating in the event. There have been 5 weeks of challenges so far, although this one is my first week participating, so there are plenty of layouts to scraplift!
This is my layout:
I used the Felicity Jane “London” collection, and I am so happy that I have been able to make two layouts so far with this collection which are quite masculine!
Here’s a close up of that mini cluster at the bottom. The puffy camera is soooo gorgeous! I have a few of them that came in one of my Lottie Loves Paper kits, but I have no idea where they are from!
Thanks for visiting today and read you very soon!
Today’s layout and YouTube video is for the ABC challenge over on For the Love of Pretty Paper. This week’s letter is K, and K is for Kraft! Kraft colour is just gorgeous, and I decided to make it my background.
I have made a process video, so go ahead and have a watch just down there!

Today’s layout I created just on Monday for a mini challenge on the Mercy Tiara facebook group, with a Creative Scrappers sketch set by Moira 🙂
Here’s my layout and the sketch:
I used the You Rock collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I am very pleased to say that I still have enough papers and embellishments for at least 4 or 5 layouts more! <3
Here are two more closeups:
I hope you have liked this layout, and thanks for visiting!
This is the third and last layout that I made at the Scrap Cafe crop on Saturday. I used papers from the “Tealightful” collection by Pebbles, and the embellishments are mainly Cocoa Vanilla Studio, from the “Love Always” collection. Both purchased from Lottie Loves Paper.
I had to retouch the mixed media under the papers once I got home, as what I added at the crop was mainly hidden by the papers. And as you can see, I went fro a cream textured cardstock, rather than pure white and I think it looks great!
Here it is:
