You make me Happy

Hello everyone

Popping in with another boy page, created using Photo Play Real Genius collection:

You Make Me Happy





I created this background using some splashes of dylusions and distress ink sprays, then adding some water to blend it together. Then when dry, I added a few more splashes. Experimental, but I love how it turned out!

Shine


Hello all

How stunning is this collection - Fancy Pants Millie & June. I adore the colours in this range! Just love those pops of gold and the deeper colours. It is really nice.

My layout today is Shine






I've used lots of pops of gold on this. It may be hard to tell from the photo but the striped paper is white and gold foil. I've added some touches with Heidi Swapp Colorshine in Gold Lame - I love this stuff, for that touch of gold - I've added it to my chipboard flower and to my background. Then finished off with a gorgeous gold title!

Till next time

Capture the Moment(s)

Hello everyone

While away on retreat last month I thought it would be a great idea to do two layouts that were the same design, one of Lily and one of Zane. I figured it would be quicker, but it wasn't really! 

I love the result, as the photos were from the same day, I've even used the same title!

Capture the Moment

Seize the Day

Hello everyone

Using up some leftover Simple Stories Carpe Diem papers that I still had for this layout created earlier this month for All About Scrapbooks. 

Seize the Day



I adore bright colours on black backgrounds, but to soften the layout a little, I've swiped some gesso across the background and added a bright border. 

All the embellishments are from the same collection - I've fussy cut some flowers from one of the papers and added stickers from the Elements sheets to finish the page.

Colouring In

Hello everyone

Loving the colouring in trend at the moment and especially how we can use it in Scrapbooking. Cocoa Vanilla Studio and Kaisercraft both have some cool papers that are perfect to add some colouring in. 

My favourite pencils are Prismacolors - love the depth of colour and they are so smooth to use. 

My first page was a class page for All About Scrapbooks using pops of colouring in:




My second layout was a labour of love - lots of colouring involved to created this gorgeous dreamcatcher which once coloured I fussy cut from the sheet. After all that effort I wanted my dreamcatcher to be the focus of the page, so added a small 3x4 photo and minimal emblellishments

11 Seconds - Scrap the Boys May Challenge

Hi Everyone

Fell in love with the sketch over at Scrap the Boys this month and decided to play along as I had the perfect trio of photos ready to go. 




My layout is based on this sketch:


I've taken a pretty literal interpretation, simply rotated the sketch but kept to the main design.

Very proud of Zane giving the mechanical bull a go at Brighton Pier whilst on holidays. The only people going on were guys around 20 years old, and no one was lasting very long at all! Zane managed 11 seconds which was longer than some of the guys we watched!



I've used a mix of patterned paper ranges to get my blue, red and yellow colour combo and created a watercolour background with watered down inks on my stars background. I've added some extra stars to embellish from Charms Creations and Corbett Creations wood veneers.

Kraft Plus - Arthur Weasleys Ford Anglia

Hello everyone

Loved the challenge over at Kraft Plus this month and decided to make sure I fit in in and not leave it too late! As soon as I saw the inspiration board I knew exactly which photo I wanted to scrap and it gave me the idea to cut out my photo which gives it a lot more impact than it would of had with all the background!



I took my design inspiration from the layers, the circles, the paint and even the colours to an extent! This is the Kraft Plus image:





I then challenged myself to use no paper in this too, I love my patterned paper but decided to give it a go without using any. Instead I used lots of ephemera & stickers. 

I am super pleased with how it turned out, I wasn't sure where it was going at one point but it all came together!

Some close-ups


My background consists of masking with Dylusions spray, then some random sprays and splashes of Dylusions, stamping with Dylusions paint and some stamped stitched circles. 



A mix of ephemera, stickers and chipboard helped me avoid using any paper. There is a little bit of black cardstock behind the "awesome" speech bubble.



Thanks for stopping by, you can check out the fantastic Kraft Plus challenge here.
