Hi everyone! I hope you are all well, as I busily try to catch up on my Design Team Commitments after the chaos of moving house, I decided to have a quick play with the Scrapbooking From Scratch Quote Challenge this for June hosted by Charmane from Charms Creations.

The Quote is “The Best Thing About Memories Is Making Them”

I decided to use the fabulous Modern Romance Line Papers from Websters Pages and I have used the Clean and Simple sides for my backgrounds and then have fussy cut lots of fabulous flowers to use in my clusters.

In the bottom left corner, I have added some fussy cut flowers alongside a Charms Creation Lollipop, Prima Marketing Ingvild Blome Light Bulb and a fabulous Heidi Swapp Buzz Word.

I have used some American Crafts Thickers alongside some Prima Marketing ABC Stickers for creating my title.

The Background has some subtle masking using Texture Acrylic Paint and the Brocade 12×12 Crafters Workshop Template. I applied the paint with a natural sponge to get an interesting effect.

A Prima Marketing Resin Window, some Prima flowers alongside some Pink Paislee Artisan Elements and the layout was complete.

Overall I would have to say I am not a fan of this layout LOL. I am my own worst critic I know but I went way off track with my original plan and the page suffered.

Thanks so much for checking out my blog and don’t forget to leave me some love .

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Hi everyone! I am back to share a quick layout with you all today featuring a pic of my fabulous husband Joel.

To create this layout, I have used various Heidi Swapp papers from both the Sugar Chic collection and the No Limits Collection. I just adore Heidi’s ranges and I was so happy to be able to use some of the super girly range Sugar Chic in a more masculine way.

Now I never pretend to be very good at male themed layouts but I think I have done my hubby justice here with lots of manly features alongside bright colours and a ray of sunshine feel. To decorate the background, I have used the Harlequin Crafters Workshop Stencil with a mixture Teal Bombay India Ink and some Texture Paste. I also used the negative from 2 A2Z Scraplets cogs packs to add some cog shapes around the border and before they had a chance to dry, I have quickly sprinkled some Silver Micro Beads to add some metallic effect to the cogs. I still wasn’t 100% happy with the cogs so I have gone and coloured some A2Z Scraplets Cog Chipboard pieces using some Dylusions Ink Sprays and Perfect Pearls Mists. Gotta add some sparkle in there hehehe.

I wanted to add this fabulous A2Z Scraplets Starburst to the layout as well and decided I would layer it with lots of fun papers. I simply sprayed it with some Yellow Perfect Pearls Mist and allowed to dry before I stuck everything down and slotted the starburst in between layers.

Lots of final touches included some Heidi Swapp Buzz Words, Charms Creations Super Star along with some doodling and journalling. I also decided to add some washi tape and Heidi Swapp Phrase Stickers as well. Doesn’t it look fab? How awesome are Heidi’s product? She is definately an idol of mine. 🙂
