Hello everyone, and welcome again to my blog!
There was another mini challenge last night again on the Lottie Loves Paper facebook group, with a new sketch, and I played along!
This is my layout and the sketch it’s based on:
For this layout I used a new Echo Park collection called Just be you. I bought it recently and I thought I should use it rather than hoard it like I would normally do! It’s a really pretty collection with a darker green than I am used to, but I thought it suited these photos quite well any way. And I only used the collection! Apart from the date stamp and the little phrase stickers, every single item on this layout came from the pack! That’s so unusual for me!
Here are a couple more close ups:
I hope you have liked this layout and thanks for stopping by!
I got to play with pretty paper last night. I created this layout for a for fun mini challenge over at the Lottie Loves Paper facebook group. It is based on a sketch and I really loved creating it! I actually struggled a tiny bit at the very beginning… it took me a while to choose the papers, but once I made the decision the layout came about quite quickly.
Here is my layout, and the sketch that it’s based on:
I absolutely adore the aqua cardstock that I used for the background. I seem to remember that I bought it off Lorraine at the Scrap Cafe crop. I must ask her if she’s got more because I would love to buy a few more sheets! Here’s a close up so you can see the lovely texture that it’s got.
I hope you have liked this layout and thanks for visiting! x
After the crazy whirlwind of National Scrapbooking Day, I am back today with a layout created for the Stick it Down challenge. I used a sketch from Laura Rumble, which – in my opinion – was asking for a lot of stamping in the background, so I went for it! So much so that I may have gone a bit too over the top. Oh well… 🙂
Here is my layout:
And the sketch:
I used a stamp set that I’ve had for some time, which I hadn’t used to its full potential. It’s from Simon Says Stamp and it’s called “Flip flop season”. I actually loved going a bit crazy with the stamping! Unfortunately I also dropped the stamp in a couple of places in the cardstock, so there are a few marks… But it happenes to seasoned stampers too!

I hope you have liked it, and read you soon!
I really hope you are playing along all the challenges over at For the Love of Pretty Paper and UK Scrap Addicts for this amazing weekend of NSD. I am having a blast!
For my first layout today, I am using a FREE cut file from UK Scrap Addicts. You can get it here.
However, despite having an electronic cutting machine, I wanted to use the cut file in a different way. So I printed in in 12×12 cardstock (I am lucky enough to have an A3 printer to do this) and I coloured it with my watercolours. The result is messy and totally not perfect, but that was my plan anyway. My layout takes inspiration from the Mandala, which can be interpreted like a dream for completeness and happiness. And I dream about this completeness and happiness, so this is what my layout is about.
I really hope you like it and it has inspired you to create your own!
See you very soon!
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!
