Home Sweet Home - Life.Paper.Scrapbook July Mood Board - Mixed Media layout

I love following the Issuu magazine Life.Paper.Scrapbook and find it so inspirational and love that it's free!!!

This week I decided to have a go at the July Mood Board.

The following layout is something I had been preparing and it fit in nicely using the blue and red with the "Home" theme. I got a little adventurous and cut a stencil with my Cricut using the "Artbooking" cartridge from Close to My Heart and then used it to stencil on modelling paste. It needs some refinement but I'm overall pretty happy with this layout.


Red, Blue and White cardstock, a free patterned paper (from Scrapbooking Memories), Creative Memories (CM) "Home Sweet Home" sticker, CM "Seasons" paper, Cricut "Artbooking" Cartridge, Mont Marte Modelling Paste, Couture Creations Glitzin Clamour "Rainbow", Close to My Heart (CTMH) Ink "Pacifica", Computer journalling, sequins and twine.

Scrap Around the World July Mood Board Challenge

I only recently discovered Scrap Around the World and it's what got me into "Blogs" and "Blogging". So many talented scrappers from all around the world.

I decided to have a go at the mood board for July. It has a very feminine feel and being a mum of twin boys, I find it hard to scrap with anything other than blues, greens and neutrals.

So what better opportunity than to use my baby shower photo for a more girly layout.

Here is the mood board:

and here is my layout:

I was inspired by the sewing scene and decided to use stitching on the layout. I also loved the quote about life. I've then gone fairly basic and used the colour palette to guide me.

Materials for this layout:

Creative Memories (CM) Power Palette - Fabulous, Versa Colour Ink in Orchid, Close to my Heart (CTMH) ink in Pacifica, Stampin Up "Thinking of You" Stamp, Black ink, Clear Embossing ink, Embossing powder in "Crystal" and "Wild Plum", Faber Castell Gelatos in Metallic Melon, Cricut cartridge "Art Philosophy" (CTMH), Mont Marte modelling paste (with reverse stamping), Momenta stickers, Sandylion stickers, CM Stickers, Kaisercraft flowers and rhinestones, journalling on PC
