Scrap the Boys July Challenge - "Hello Blue" scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout created for the July challenge over at


This months inspiration was a fabulous moodboard.


I started with some pink project life cards and once I'd built some layers I added some blue distress ink to the background.

I found the cute "Hello" title from my stash and used the title "Hello Blue" because Master Cooper is mad about Jurassic World, Veloceraptor "Blue" - hence the puzzle in the photos.

Just a couple of embellishments to finish this fabulous colour scheme.

Love it.

Thanks for visiting.

--- Mystical Scrapbooks DT --- July Challenge Reveal "Christmas in July" theme

Hello Crafty Friends

Welcome to July 1st.

My first share this month is some happy news ...

I've joined the team at 


I'm excited to be getting involved with this group online and if you haven't joined yet, you can find them here: Mystical Scrapbooks Chat

For the month of July we are inspiring you to play along with the "Christmas in July" theme.

Don't panic though if you have nothing that fits the theme ...
Below I'm going to share some inspiration of how you could play along this month.


Here's an inspiration board.
From this board you could be inspired by:

- Red, green, gold or silver
- Words: Presents, Fun, Family, Peace
- Groups of 4
- A grid type layout
- paint background



I've used the grid style and chosen Gold as my main colour.


I've used the Kaisercraft Christmas Edition 6x6 paper pad, teamed with some Gold foil and a little bit of red bling.

One of my favourite techniques at the moment is stitching and I love to leave the cotton threads hanging, I love the texture it adds.

Here are some close ups ...





Have Fun & Enjoy.

--- White with ... 1 --- June Scrapbook layout "Love"

Hi Crafters

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook layout created for the challenge over at

My layout "Love"


This month the team challenged us to create white on white with the colour
"Whisper"


So I started with white cardstock - easy!

Then I pulled out a doily for texture and then raided my embellishment box - which are all sorted by colour. So I grabbed some white hearts, the love word and the feather.

Next I had to find the photo ... I couldn't go past this one from our wedding - 10 years ago!!!!!

I used a Kinder Kreations Spring Bouquet Stencil stencil with the Crafters Workshop "Shimmery Goodness" paste to create more interest and texture.

I'm so pleased with how this layout turned out and it took less than an hour!

Thanks for visiting.

Happy Scrapping.

--- 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
KK1740


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.


March Challenge Scrapbook Layouts - Posted on Facebook

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.
