White with 1 - January 9x12 scrapbook layout "Us"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing something different.
I've been stalking pinterest and I've discovered 9x12 layouts.
I've always been a 12x12 scrapper but I decided to give it a go and the challenge to my creative process really helped.

So today I'd like to share my very first 9x12 layout, created for ...

This month we were given the colour "Princess Pink"

a real challenge for me with a house full of boys.
Arriving in the post was a happy mail box full of Simple Stories "Love & Adore" - perfect for this moodboard!

This layout is different again for me as it doesn't feature a lot of mixed media.
I love the result though.

Thanks for visiting.

D-Lish Scraps January challenge - scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing my take on the sketch/moodboard at
D-Lish Scraps

My layout "Happy Hour"

A super easy sketch to work with.

I am really drawn to paper layers at the moment so I left the mixed media out of this layout and kept it to purely record keeping!

Love the result.

Thanks for visiting.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Here Comes Trouble" Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Here Comes Trouble"

I started this layout with the awesome

Bullseye Shape

and knew straight away I wanted it to be white and then use various papers to fill the gaps.
The chipboard has a couple of coats of white acrylic paint.

I've used the

"Here comes trouble" word

and treated it with two coats of Colour Blast embossing powder in "Steel" & "Envy"

I've been storing this photo for awhile, waiting for the perfect layout.
I love the title and think this photo is a great match.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

More than Words January challenge - Scrapbook Layout "Smile, Celebrate, Love"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing my take on the January challenge at 

My Layout "Smile, Celebrate, Love"

We were given the word Celebrate and had to include bling on our page.

I really wanted to challenge my comfort levels so instead of starting with white cardstock, I started with black. In completing the page I was going for a minimalist layout with striking effect.

My layers of bling inlcude Bo Bunny silver glitter paste through a stencil, diamontes and gold accents.

Thanks for visiting.

Kraft + January challenge - Scrapbook layout "Got Wheels"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout created for the January challenge at 

My layout "Got Wheels"

The challenge of course is to create on a kraft background and include a bike on the layout.

I've used a strip of bike from the Kaisercraft "Boho Dreams" sticker sheet.

I took inspiration from the blues of the moodboard and used baby blue acrylic paint and Colour Blast colour paste in "Just Blue" for my background.

After some recent feedback I'm trying to complete more multi photo layouts - Love how this one turned out!

Thanks for visiting.

--- Off the Rails Scrapbooking DT --- January 5th layout + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm on the blog for
sharing a layout and process video for the January moodboard.

My layout "The real deal"

The challenge this month is of course to complete a monochrome page.

I took my inspiration from the bright green in my photo and created my title first.
Then I used the chevron wood pieces to inspire the remainder of the background work.

You can hear all about it in the process video.

Thanks for visiting.
