Layout Lookback video on YouTube (July 2017)

Hi all!

It is not quite the end of the month, but I know I am not going to be making much more before August arrives, so I thought I would get my Layout Lookback video done today 🙂 July wasn’t as busy as May (I don’t think I’ll get another busy month like that again!) but I still managed quite a few layouts.

Here they all are:

Scrapbooking Layout – Spanish cakes are the best ever (YouTube video)

Hello everyone! I think this is going to be my last layout of the month unless I manage to get something else done at the weekend!

So today’s layout is inspired on Stick it Down‘s July single page sketch. As you will see from the video below, I started the layout following the sketch quite closely, but when it came to putting my photos down, I decided to rotate it. This means, though, that the stars at the top are not very straight, but this does not bother me too much.

I decided to use lots of washi tape. There was a conversation on FTLOPP about washi tape, and I realised how little I use mine, so I picked my favourite colour combination and made stars out of them 🙂

Here’s my layout, and the video!

Scrapbooking Layout – Breeding Lice

Hello once again!

Today I bring you the last installment of my Chinese Whispers game!

For this set, my layout was the last in the series, and this series is the one where each layout is almost unrecognisable from the previous one and no resemblance to the original sketch!

Here is the sketch:

Who then passed it on to Lis:

Who then passed it to Helen:

And finally, my take on Helen’s layout:

This layout was hilarious to make, and a couple of people have commented on scrapbooking something so gross. But, hey, why not? Why scrapbook about first steps, first words, first everythings… So first lice infestation too! 😀

Scrapbooking Layout – Lego caterpillar

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

Today’s layout is part of a crafty game that I took part on the Mind The Scrap group, called Chinese Whispers. The concept is very simple: One person creates a layout based on a sketch, then sends it to person number 2 to scraplift, who then passes on to person three and then four (or as many people as you want in your group!). There were four of us in my group.

So today I am going to show you the first set of Chinese whispers that started with me. I based my layout on a sketch I found on Pinterest, and created my layout with my June Lottie Loves Paper kit. Here it is:

And here is the sketch:

I then passed on my layout to Helen, she passed hers to Lis, who passed hers to Michelle. Here are the next three:

Scrapbooking Layout – Bedtime

Hello friends!

On Saturday I attended an all day crop in Bracknell. I was a bit late, though, as I also went to the theatre with the kids in the morning (I wouldn’t have missed their first theatre experience for anything in the world! and I am already looking forward to scrapbooking that event). So I got to the crop at around 1:30 pm and I stayed until 9:30pm. So a long time! Sadly, I wasn’t feeling 100% and I only completed 4 layouts in total, so not my most productive day but I still had a great time.

The first layout I want to show you, I actually started at home a few days earlier. I used a very similar technique than in my layout called Hello Scooter. I die cut some star shapes with my Big Shot and then splattered all over them with watercolours and some Heidi Shine too. I then stitched around the star shapes with black thread.

And here it is:

Since the layout is already so busy with the splatters, I decided to leave it pretty much untouched and only did a tiny bit amount of embellishing with some stars, a bit of journalling and the date.

Here’s a close up of the splatters:

I will post the other layouts in the next few days.

I hope you have liked this layout, and read you soon!
