Scrapbooking From Scratch May Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone, just a quick share today from me. I have entered the Scrapbooking From Scratch Sketch Challenge this month with only a couple of days to spare before closing date.

Here is the sketch and you can visit the Scrapbooking From Scratch Website here.

So here is my take on the sketch. As you can see, I have changed it a little to suit the layout that I wanted and I went with some Banners instead of Chevrons.

The Patterned Paper, stickers & embellishments are from Heidi Swapp and there is also a Yellow Charms Creations Embellishment used.

To create the background, I have randomly coated a piece of Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic Papers with some Gesso. I then decided that I wanted to cut the strip down the side so out came the Silhouette Cameo Machine and a Princess Crown Border file.

When the Gesso was dry, I have adhered some lace, tickets and some more Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic paper to make the layout 12×12 again and then I have randomly stamped some Chicken Wire over the entire page using the Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp along with some Ranger Archival Ink in Coffee.

The chicken wire Chipboard is from A2Z Scraplets of course, and was cut to suit my layout. I have covered the chipboard with a layer of Metallic Pink Acrylic Paint from Viva Decor and then have spraying some Hot Patootie Pink Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Spray over the top letting it pool up a little for a more interesting textured colour.

I have then simply layered lots of fabulous papers from Heidi Swapp’s Sugar Chic collection, added some Doodling and stickers and Bob’s your uncle, I was finished.

That’s it from me today, be sure to check back regularly for more inspiration and 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. 🙂

Today I wanted to share a quick layout with you all using the fabulous Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic range along with my Silhouette Cameo Machine.

How cute is this photo of my girls? I know you have seen this photo a lot lately because I chose to use it a lot in Mothers Day gift making etc. Finally I get to scrap a layout for me using this fab photo and I have printed it this time 5×7 inches.

It’s fun to sometimes work with really large photos but it also really easy to go over the top so I wanted to keep the layout simple with some clever layering and fabulous pops of colour.

I have first trimmed my white cardstock and rounded the corners, I have then cut from the white cardstock, half of the title using my Silhouette Cameo Machine. I also have cut a fabulous Wavy Chevron Design with my Cameo using the black Heidi Swapp Paper.

I just cannot get enough of banners LOL. I think they are one trend that has been around forever and will never get old. Well I will always love them!

Final touches were some doodling and gorgeous little Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars. The white cardstock had splatters of Tattered Angels Yellow Chalkboard Mist and I chose to place the stars on these little bursts of colour.

Heidi Swapp Buzz Word, Sequin Arrow along with a Charms Creations Heavenly Heart and the layout was complete.

Well that is it from me today, be sure to check in on Friday with my big announcement sooo exciting.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
