--- White with 1 DT --- Getting to know me and craft room tour

Hi Scrap Friends


As part of my DT role with White with ... 1 I'm on the blog today sharing a little about myself and a little peek into my scrapping space!
Please enjoy and of course, feedback is always welcome!

***


How would you describe your personal scrapbooking style?

I describe my style as PPM: Paper + medium - I'm not truly mixed media but my layouts will almost always include some medium, ie acrylic paint, texture paste, sprays/mists, inks and Distress Crayons

How long have you been scrapbooking and what first got you started?

My mum was a Creative Memories consultant 15+ years ago - I started then. I took a break for marriage and babies but came back and joined the digital world in 2014.



Which colour are you drawn to the most and do you know why?

It fluctuates regular, I've recently been through stages of yellow followed by a stage where I created a lot in turquoise/aqua.
I'm definintely drawn to brights. I really struggle with neutrals and pastels.


Typically how many photos do you put on your layout?

Typically one or two. The creative process for me is an artistic release with the bonus of being a memory recorded so I'm drawn to layouts with one to two photos and a pleasing balance of white space and creativity.



What crafting tool can’t you live without?


Probably my Scotch ATG - It's big and bulky but it seriously saves so much time because you don't have to peel the backing off the adhesive! LOL

If you could add only one embellishment to your page what would it be?

Probably stickers - They are so versatile, backgrounds, titles, embellishing - so many uses.

I love to look at other peoples craft rooms, so I thought I'd share a peek into mine ...



I've given you the real version of my space - toy cars and all!



 

 










 Late last year, I also did a video tour of my craft space.
Here's the video, if you'd prefer a live view.
(About 5 minutes in the tour starts :)




I hope you enjoyed the peek into my space.

Thanks for visiting.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Pawprints on my Heart" scrapbook layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Pawprints on my Heart"


I've used the seriously cute
chipboard. I've given the chippie a coat of white gesso. I've used
Colour Blast "Bling" embossing powder on the word "heart" and coloured the other part with Distress Crayons.


received a coat of Colour Blast embossing powder in "Royalty"


I didn't really start with a purple theme but I love the Royalty embossing powder so I kind of ran with it. No mixed media but a lovely symmetrical page.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

Scrap the Boys July sketch challenge scrapbook layout "Cutie"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'd like to share another July challenge - this one for

My layout "Cutie"


This month we got a really fun sketch to play with.



I had recently printed this series of three photos, so it was perfect for the board.


I chose to work with the Kaisercraft "Daydreamer" collection
and my background features Colour Blast paste in "Envy"



I like how easy and simple this sketch was to work with.

Thanks for visiting.

Happy Scrapping.

--- A2Z Scraplets DT --- "Beautiful Girl" Scrapbook layout + process video

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout + process video for A2Z Scraplets

My layout "Beautiful Girl"


I don't often think of myself as beautiful, so this layout is a reminder to myself (and hopefully you too) that we are all beautiful and to be kind to ourselves.


I'm really drawn to film strip at the moment so this
grabbed me right away.


I've also used the
as my title.

I've given the "Beautiful" a coat of embossing powder and the "GIRL" has a coat of gesso and coloured with Distress Crayon.

The background features Distress Oxide ink - so if you'd like to see it, you can check out this process video.


Thanks for visiting.
Happy Scrapping.

--- Scrapbook Boutique DT --- July Challenge reveal "Bestie" Scrapbook Layout

Hi Scrap Friends

It's challenge time over at Scrapbook Boutique.



We'd love to see your creations inspired by our July moodboard.



Here is my layout "Bestie"


I've started my page with the Kaisercraft "Wildflower" collection which has those lovely neutrals + turquoise colours.

I've kept the palette quite soft and as the moodboard featured ladies - I decided to use a photo of my Bestie and I. (It's an oldie but a goodie!!)


I added a layer of Colour Blast paste in "Snow White" which has a lovely sparkly, shimmer.


I chose the chipboard piece as it has an architectural feel - just like the Eiffel Tower.


Here is the process video to see how I created this page ...
