Fresh Cup Of Happiness

Hi crafty peeps, today I bring you another process video!  Yes I am really getting into this whole video thing, it's quite fun and I've always loved learning new things.

The scrapbook page today is made with the Barista collection by basic Grey, I am determined I will kill this collection this week lol!  I only have a few 6 x 6 papers left and some stickers so it is possible :)

The photo is of a latte my hubby made for me, we are huge coffee addicts lol!  And I loved the way the coffee and milk had created layers in the latte cup, it was so pretty.  I just wanted to document that and it gave me an excuse to use up all those coffee related items I have been hoarding lol!

I had fun pulling out some old Bo Bunny stamps to stamp the background, I used the Stained Textures set.  With distress inks in Ground Espresso and Gathered Twigs, I added in some flair from A Flair For Buttons and some wooden hearts from Ebay.  I love the way this page came together, it was so quick and was finished in about 30 mins.

Here is the video

My First PJ's

Hi crafty peeps, today I've got a scrapbook layout using the May Like forever kit.

It's full of sunny bright colours, and I chose photos to reflect that, the kit is full of  Paige Evans Fancy Free papers, Elle Studio ephemera and other gorgeousness :)  Here is a link to the kit contents this month LIVE OUT LOUD

So this photo was taken last year when I got Bailey a set of ducky PJ's, to say he wasn't impressed was an understatement lol!  I still haven't decided on where I want to put my journalling ar if I want to move the title so this may change.  The layout was done for the Like Forever FB group International Scrapbooking day, scraplift yourself challenge and I decided to scraplift this layout.

Here is the process video

INSD Like Forever FB Group Mood Board Challenge FREEBIE

Hi lovely peeps, I had a lovely day yesterday scrapping away, hubby bringing me lunch and cups of tea to keep me going lol!

I entered a couple of challenges on the Like Forever FB group, this is the entry for Elsie Robinson's mood board challenge.  I loved the mood board, the colours were girly and gorgeous and I really loved the triangular shelves.
I really wanted to use the triangles on my lay out so I create a cut file in Silhouette Studio, I'm uploading it to my for you to download here.

Here is the layout, I'm not going to put a supplies list as it was all scraps from my stash.

Happy Crafting

Nommy Nandos Scrapbook Layout

Hi guys and gals, I have another scrapbook layout today for you :)

I received my May Like Forever kit this week, the kit is called Live Out Loud and it's certainly loud in it's colour selection!    The kit is gorgeous, and I love that it's a UK kit as getting the kits and product from the US is getting ridiculously expensive.

On to to today's layout, there is a process video for this layout here.

I chose the gorgeous Amy Tan Milk And Honey paper from the Better Together collection as my starting point, I must admit I am not an Amy Tan fan but I adore this paper and was going to order some, so I was thrilled when we got some in the kit.  The photo is from last August when we went out for my sisters birthday to Nandos, we don't get to see each other as often as we should so it was lovely to get to spend time with her and her hubby. This was a simple layout, it didn't take long at all and I love the finished result.
