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!

Read you soon,

Getting ready for National Scrapbooking Day!

Hello lovely likers!

It just occurred to me that you may not see much happening in here in the next couple of weeks as I get ready for NSD.

What is NSD, I hear you ask? It’s National Scrapbooking Day! Funny it’s called “National”, because it certainly is not just national, but INTERnational! The day started in the US and hence why it’s called National, however this “holiday” has been adopted by many other countries in the world! It will be happening on the weekend of 5th-7th of May.

I am taking place in two separate events (although they are both connected!). The first one is for For the Love of Pretty Paper facebook group. The event starts on Friday evening and finished on Sunday mid afternoon. In these two days there will be lots of challenges, prizes, games and chat. I am taking part in 5 challenges! Since I am hosting, I get to know the challenges in advance and prepare for them.

The second event is for UK Scrap Addicts. This event only takes place on Saturday, but there will also be lots of videos, challenges, prizes and blog posts. I am taking part in five of the challenges, so that means that I am very busy at the moment!

Hopefully you will be able to join us either on Facebook, on the UKSA blog and on YouTube that weekend!

Scrapbooking Process – Exeter

Hello lovely likers! It’s the Easter holidays! Have you got anything interesting planned? And more importantly, will you be doing any scrapbooking?

Today I bring you another process video, and this time I have been a brave big girl and done a voice over! I hate my voice (like everyone else does, I suppose) but I decided it was time to face my fears.

The layout is about a mini break that my husband and I took in Exeter last week. I think this is the fastest “camera to layout” page I’ve ever done. We came back on Wednesday and by Friday I had already printed the photos! That’s a first!! The page was inspired by one of the UK Scrap Addicts designers and her page with hand stitching. Here’s her layout that inspired me.

Anyway, here’s a photo of the page and for more details, please see the video below!

Scrapbooking Layout – Balcony Shenanigans

Hello lovely likers!

I am back again with another Scrapbooking Process video on youtube!! Whaaaat!!!

I must say, this is my third video and I am loving making them. I wish I had more hours in the day to make more videos! I am in real awe of all those scrappers out there who make videos almost every day AND have a job and run their families/homes. I wonder where they get the time from! At the moment I need to film my videos during the day, as I don’t have special lighting for my desk and rely on the daylight. However, I may ask for some lightboxes or similar for the next big event that requires presents (hang on, my birthday and Mother’s Day have just gone… will that be Christmas then? Heck, I can’t wait that long!)

So today’s layout is inspired by a challenge that Paige Taylor Evans set up on the Hey Little Magpie inspiration page on Facebook. The challenge is to use scraps or strips of leftover paper. And I have lots of scraps! So this challenge is ideal for me 🙂

Here is a photo of my finished layout:

And here is the youtube video! As I said the previous time, I am still learning and I appreciate any constructive criticism, whether it’s positive or negative, as long as it’s constructive I will take it into account! On my previous video a few people said that they preferred videos with voiceovers, and/or they found the music irritating. Unfortunately I don’t think I am ready to do voiceovers. I am so self concious of my voice/accent, and not being a chatty person, I found quite hard finding things to say… Anyway, I may give it a go in the future… not saying “never”, just “not for now”.

I hope you have enjoyed this layout.

Read you very soon!

Scrapbook Layout – She leaves a little bit of sparkle (youtube video)

Hello fellow scrapbookers!

I’m back with you today with my first scrapbooking process video on youtube! Eeekkkkk! (Actually, this is my second youtube video, but the first one to be published. My first process video I made the other day for UK Scrap Addicts, but it not due to be published until next week.  Stay tuned for that!)

For this layout I have used my new Lottie Loves Paper kit which arrived just this morning. It is composed mainly by Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Wild at Heart” collection, which is absolutely gorgeous!!

Here is a photo of the layout:

Any constructive feedback is more than welcome. I am not sure how often I will be making videos, but definitely a two or three a month I can squeeze!

Thanks for stopping by,
