Scrap the Boys January Challenge scrapbooking layout "#happy"

Hello Scrap Friends

It's such a pleasure to stop by today and share a layout I created inspired by the
January challenge at Scrap the Boys

My layout "#happy"

Absolutely loved this colour combination.
I think purple is a great shade for something different on a boys page.

I took inspiration from the colours, texture of the stars, lines of the bamboo
and the grungy look of the door.

Really pleased with the outcome of this layout.

Thanks for visiting.

--- Off the Rails Scrapbooking DT layout + Process Video --- January Moodboard "You Colour my world"

Hello Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout for Off the Rails Scrapbooking.

"You Colour my world"

I'm going to admit, I really struggled with this board initially.
Once I moved past the vintage feel, I was able to pull out the blue, red and yellow
colours and work out that I wanted to theme my layout about "A Colourful life"!

Below you'll find a process video for completing this layout.

Hope you enjoy.

White with 1 January scrapbook layout

Hello Scrap Friends

So pleased to bring you a layout inspired by the January challenge at

My layout:

It's been awhile since I played at White with 1 because 
I struggle to create a page with only one main colour.

For this layout I've used gelato, acrylic paint, spray mist, a Charms Creations
DIY star and a Flutterby Designs flair mixed in with some other items from my stash.

When I saw the January "Treetops" colour I knew I wanted to do it. 
I've been digging through my "unscrapped" photos and discovered this one of Master C
at just two days old and  knew it would be perfect.

Thanks for visiting.
