Tangled - All About Scrapbooks


Hello

Today I am sharing my layout "Tangled" that went up on the All About Scrapbooks blog on Tuesday. I have used the Kaisercraft Violet Crush range again to create this layout about Lily dressed up as Rapunzel from the movie Tangled.

 

She was playing dress-ups with some friends and when I asked to get a photo of her all dresssed up, she told me to wait till she went and got something. She came back with the toy frying pan and then did the serious face on the right photo. It was so funny and pretty cute. I did ask for a nice smile too of course which is the pic on the left. 

I was very happy to see a purple paper range that worked with the colours in the rapunzel dress. Lilys favourite colour is purple so I will be getting some use from this range for sure! 
I have a couple of close ups over on the All About Scrapbooks blog

Inspired Blueprints Sketch #118 - Fancy Plaits

Hello

Sketch #118 has gone live over at Inspired Blueprints this week, love the unique design of this one, perfect for instagram style photos! This is the sketch:


And for my take on it, I have widened the middle strip of paper, added a background piece and used a frame to highlight the main photo. I have included some journaling in just the bottom section.


I've done a little sequence of Lily with her 3 plaits that her Aunty did for her. She wanted a photo as she was so excited by it - I tend to stick with a ponytail or a single plait so these she loved! 

To play along with this sketch check out the Inspired Blueprints blog here:

Till next time

So Glam - for All About Scrapbooks

Hello everyone
 
Today I am back with a layout I am sharing for All About Scrapbooks blog. I have created this layout using Kaisercrafts Violet Crush collection. I know purple isn't everyones cup of tea, but as it is Lily's favourite colour, I am always excited by ranges that have purple in them and I love this one! It is a really pretty range.

 
 
Love this photo of her, it is a couple of years old now, but she was just so cute creating her own style with her new sunnies and scarf! 
 I have a couple of close-ups over at the All About Scrapbooks blog, would love you to head over and check it out! We would love you to become a follower too.

Live Laugh Love for All About Scrapbooks

Hello everyone
 
Over on the All About Scrapbooks blog, I am sharing a layout created using Simple Stories Urban Traveler range, along with the I {hear} Summer background paper and some Simple Stories Snap Set cards.  .
 
 
I have used a couple of stamps to add some detail to the background, then layered my papers & vellum. I used a snap set card as my title and finished the layout off with some simple embellishments: a chipboard view finder, camera paper clip, some stickers and flair buttons. 
 
Pop on over to the All About Scrapbooks Australia Blog to see close-ups and a product list.

Inspired Blueprints Sketch #116 - A Peaceful Moment

Hello everyone

Inspired Blueprints Sketches are now going live on Tuesdays and we have made it much easier to add your layout, by including a linky on the blog post here.

This weeks sketch (Sketch #116)  is a single photo sketch and I have taken my inspiration from the branches in the design:


I have had this photo printed out for a while with a vague idea of incorporating the branches from the cherry blossom Lily is resting under into the layout, when along came this sketch:




and bingo! Perfect!!

I have mirrored the sketch and added lots of paper layers to my design while keeping the overall idea of the sketch the same - especially the cool branches. 

I hope to see a few entries on the blog.

Hello everyone

This week over at the All About Scrapbooks blog, I have shared a few pages of my Elf on the Shelf mini album. This is the first mini-album I have ever done, strictly a 12x12 layout girl in the past.

Days 2 & 3
 
  Days 4 & 5

Days 6 & 7

Days 8 & 9

 
Day 10 & 11

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone

No I haven't finished a layout already, I am sharing my layout for All About Scrapbooks that was posted on the blog Tuesday. 



An adorable photo of my girl and the great quote I saw on a canvas in a shop, and have gotten it made as a title! I love it, it's an important thing for a young girl to know.

I have used Echo Park Beautiful Life range - rather fitting don't you think? The background paper is Crate Paper Flea Market. Pop over to the new All About Scrapbooks blog for close ups and a full product list. 

Wishing you all a most wonderful 2014, may it be your best year yet!!
