Artastic challenge blog - June Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout created for the June challenge at
Artastic Challenge Blog

"Cousin Love"



This month we were challenged with this inspiration piece.



Our layout should either be vintage or feature children.

Vintage is not my thing, so I went with children.
I'd had this photo printed for awhile, as I love how the cousins are holding hands and walking together to the beach.
I hadn't scrapped it as it's a "no faces" photo and I couldn't get it to work.
With the inspiration piece of children holding hands - it was finally time to get it scrapped!


I really liked the pastel feel of the print, so I chose the Kaisercraft "Daydreamer" collection.

I chose this patterned paper because I thought it would work well but as I started to create - it was really challenging to work with!

I ended up cutting the top right corner and then remounting it on some patterned paper, with my photo in the middle and some mixed media in the background.



My journalling appears crooked in the photo but it's pretty straight on the layout - not sure what's going on there!

Thanks so much for visiting.

123 challenge blog June challenge - scrapbook Layout "I love right now"

Hi Scrap Friends

It's been a little quiet on the blog as I work on some project for upcoming DT positions.
So today I decided to share with you a layout I created for the June challenge at
123 Challenge Blog

"I Love Right Now"


This month was definitely a challenge ...



I decided to start with an off white paper and lean heavily towards neutrals.
I chose this marble effect 12x12 from Heidi Swapp Magnolia Jane collection.

I then added some texture paste through a stencil and while it was still wet, I covered with silver glass chips - to add some bling to my background.



I chose this photo in black and white to keep with the neutral theme and raided my stash for some papers and embellishments to go with it.


Once dried and I started to put the layout together, the background was missing something - so I added some stamping and the little fussy cut bees.

I quite enjoyed this challenging process and although not a true white layout - I like the result.

Thanks for visiting.

--- Scrapbook Boutique DT --- "Boy oh Boy" with Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection

 Hi Scrap Friends

Today I've got a layout to share for Scrapbook Boutique
Just in case you haven't stopped by my blog before,
My main scrapbook inspiration is my boys!
So of course I was eager to get my hands on the Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection.

"Boy oh Boy"


I started this layout by choosing a cut file and using the patterned papers to back the cut file.
I chose my photo based on the colours of this collection - Blue!


I decided to add a little mixed media to the background and first painted on the 
"Cornflower blue" Nuvo embellishment mousse followed by the "Aquamarine" Nuvo embellishment mousse through this fabulous stencil!



Other elements on the page are some of the die-cuts, stickers and some cotton.

You can find these items at

or click the links below.


You can see the process to complete this page in this video.

Jot Magazine June challenge - scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'd like to share a scrapbook layout created for the June challenge at

I saw this moodboard and it was just begging me to create something!


Gold + neutrals - What's not to love?

I started with a Heidi Swapp "Magnolia Jane" paper and added some thin gold washi tape.


I chose a photo of my bestie and I dressed up for a masquerade party - perfect for this moodboard!


Some gold bling, washi, splatters and embellishing finished this layout nicely!
