Happy Wednesday! Is it as cold as it is here where you are? Yesterday the holiday club spent is day at a farm and it was freezing! I was wearing a polo shirt, a hooded jumper and a coat on top! And yes, it is July, nearly August. Oh well – it probably was much warmer when I took the photo here in this layout.
This layout is the last of my short series of using 6×6 Paper Pads. It is quite similar to the scrapbooking layout last Monday, although the colours are different and I left space between the patterned papers.
I made great use of the big number Two and the two fox faces – all with the intention to “kill a kit” as scrapbookers say.
Some loose sequins also found its way on the page as well as a whole piece of sequins ribbon.
I hope the weather brightens up a bit and we get a few warmer days soon. See you all on Friday!
Hello my fellow crafters! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Ours was a bit divided: on Saturday it was sunny and quite warm, but on Sunday it rained again the whole day and I nearly switched on the heating! Yes, in July! Oh well, it is how it is! But as it was nice on Saturday, we enjoyed a walk in Ramsdown Forest.
This week’s layout is from a walk along the beach back in April. We “discovered” the cliff lift in Bournemouth (they even got three of them) and we even took a ride up the cliff!
I used up a lot of strips I had left in my bag of Dear Lizzy’s “5th & Frolic” paper collection by American Crafts. The paper collection is coming to an end soon! Just one more layout on Wednesday and I have finished it all up. This layout features the greens, blues and browns, which coordinates really well with the photo I think. The yellow butterflies are providing a bit of accents on this page.
Although I did not strictly used just scraps from 6×6 papers, this layout could be count as one out of my 6×6 Paper Pad Series – and the real one is coming on Wednesday! Hope to see you then!
Happy challenge Friday! Hope you all had a great week and are not too exhausted for the new challenge I have for you today.
This Friday’s scrapbooking layout was actually completed yesterday on my day off (and it was a bit like a weekend day because Mr Evans and I went to Kingston Lacy for a lovely stroll around the grounds and a stop over in the restaurant for some sandwiches and a salad). I features a photo I took back in May when we went to IKEA to get a desk for my crafting and one for my PC (and several other things).
So what is special about this layout? Easy! It is a different size!
From time to time I like to work with smaller pages (or even with divided pages). It changes the perspective of my work and makes me aware of all the possibilities you have when downsizing from a 12×12 page to a letter format of 8.5 by 11 inches (or even smaller). It also brings a variety to your scrapbooking albums with all these different sizes.
As the photo contained a lot of yellow tones I decided to use a similar colour scheme. “Printshop” by Studio Calico seemed a perfect fit for it. I also love the lighter patterns with the writing and the muted colours.
The big stars are chipboards I got from Sarah – I happened to have the coordinating punch for it! Perfect match! Thanks again Sarah, looking forward to using them bit by bit!
And now it is your turn for this week’s I Challenge YOU task: Step out of your comfort zone and discover a whole range of new possibilities with a different size of paper! I am looking forward to your projects, please keep them coming! x
Good Morning my crafty friends! When you are reading this, I am already on my way to a country park for an all-day-long trip with our holiday club. We all hope the weather is holding up and it is not getting too hot for the kids (and the grown-ups!).
And as promised here is another take on my use of a 6×6 Paper Pad, and it is Dear Lizzy’s “5th & Frolic” paper collection by American Crafts again! Like I wrote on Monday, the collections is base around HOME and HOUSES. Kingston Lacy, a great National Trust place to have a leisurely stroll at any time of the year, would be a place I’d love to move into immediately!
Again, I used a few of the 6×6 paper pads sheets from this great scrapbooking collection and some of the stickers which I wouldn’t have used otherwise as they are really specific.
See this sequin-ribbon? This was in my possession for a very long time, and finally it is used on this layout! Yay! There is no need to hoard all your stash – no one can see it in your drawers. Put it on a layout and adore it!Have a great day everyone! On Friday it is time for a new Challenge and yes, it is based on your 6×6 Paper Pads!
Happy Monday my scrappy friends! To start with, let me say thank you for all your comments on my blogpost last Friday with the relieving revelation of having a great job from September on! I sometimes still have to pinch myself to believe that I really was successful!
Anyway, Mr Evans and I celebrated this success at the weekend and went for a lovely walk along the beach. We spotted resting seagulls, flying humans, nature’s wonders and adventurous sailors.
My Weekend layout features Brownsea Castle, not far from the beach in Poole we have been on Saturday actually! I took the shot back in April when Mr Evans and I visited Compton Acres Gardens in Poole.
For this scrapbooking layout I was again using papers from the Dear Lizzy’s “5th & Frolic” paper collection by American Crafts. The collection’s overall theme is about HOME and HOUSES – things which actually don’t apply to me really. So I needed a different approach to use the stickers and papers: I turned Brownsea Castle into my dream home! A girl can dream, right?!
Hope you all have a fabulous week! I am back on Wednesday with My Take On 6×6 Paper Pads!
