--- Scrap the Boys December 2019 --- Peace & Joy challenge

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for

Inspiration for this layout is a Christmas page featuring a man in your life.

This photo is a little blurry so was tricky to scrap, but I managed to distract with lots of background elements. 

I also don't often scrap on Kraft background so this was a huge challenge for me.

This layout also features Kinder Kreations chipboard

Thanks for visiting.

I'm hoping to be a little more consistent on my blog next year :) 

Happy Scrapping.

Scrap the Boys March Challenge - Scrapbook Layout "Dreamer"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing my layout for the March challenge over at

My layout "Dreamer"

This month we were inspired by the below image.
March 2019 Challenge

I first decided to create a star background and used stamps with clear and sparkle embossing powders.
Then I used Colour Blast Shimmer Dust and water colour to create a background similar to the image.

I chose this photo of Master Z in the strangest sleeping position as it matched the "Dreamer" title which was inspired by the night time theme of the board.

I had such fun creating this layout and I love the result.

Thanks for visiting.

Hello Scrappy Friends

Just visited my blog and realised how slack I've been.
It seems as though most of the scrappy challenges have moved over to Facebook.
I decided though that I would create a post dedicated to my scrappy creations each month.

Scrap the Boys - February Challenge - "My Foodie"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a February project for
Scrap the Boys

"My Foodie"

This month we were to be inspired by this moodboard

February 2019 Challenge

I also used the bonus cut file from

Recently my focus has been on multi photo layouts.
So I raided my printed photo stash and realised I had quite a few of Master C enjoying food!
So I combined them and I love how this one turned out!

I've used Colour Blast sprays on the cut file and mounted it with foam to add dimension.
Then I chose a patterned paper background but muted it with some heavy white gesso to help lift the cut file and the photos from the background.

Thanks for visiting.

White with ... 1 - February challenge "Vivid Red" Scrapbook Layout "Friends"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing my first Feb layout.
I decided to play along with White ... with 1


I seriously love red!
But I hardly ever scrap with it. I find it very difficult to make a beautiful page so ...
thank you for the challenge.

I've followed the sketch for this page.

With thanks to Laura Rahel Crosby for the pinwheel inspiration.

I even made a short process video for this layout.
