Hair-raising – Sketch 110 from Creative Scrappers

This is a layout about myself (for a change) and the flat top haircut I decided to have (somewhat unwisely) when I was about 17 years old.  Unfortunatly the quality of the photograph isnt very good, but I still wanted to scrap it.

I think the photograph was taken on Tynemouth Longsands but I am not 100% sure.

I used sketch 110 from Creative Scrappers which was my main inspiration.

I used:

Bazzill Basics in two different colours (sorry I don’t know which)

Patterned Paper by Kaisercraft – Sweets – Raspberry Cream & Creme Caramel

2 paper strips from Simply Cards and Papercrafts – Free Kit – The Never Not Collection.

A journalling block from a free paper pad from Cardmaking and Papercraft – MME – Quite Contrary.

Chipboard flowers.

Thickers in Rainboots – Colour Powder.

Kaisercraft Rhinestones – Amber coloured.

Liquid Pearls in Mint Green.

Ooh, I nearly forgot – I Cosmic Shimmers on the chipboard flowers after embossing each of them with different pattern using my Cuttlebug.

I had fun scrapping this photograph as it brought back memories long forgotten.  I was going out with this lovely guy at the time and he had a ‘flat top’ haircut and I remember thinking ‘I should have my hair like that’.  Well I don’t really think it was the best style for me.

Hope you like it.

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine.


Which WAY?

I don’t know how clear it is in the photograph, but I am stood in front of a sign which says Pennine Way on both sides.  I have played on the word WAY as part of a double meaning, if you get what I mean?

I used a kit from Gauche Alchemy called Pitching a Tent. I think I have made 3 layouts using this kit and still have loads left.

Hope you like it.

Little Pink Dress

Everyone knows what a LBD is – a little black dress right!  Well a good few years ago I had a dress I really loved, except it was pink.  When I wore it I always felt good.

So when I rediscovered a few photos of said dress I had to scrap them of course.

I used two different sets of letter stamps for the text,  I also used a bird and flower stamp and coloured these in with Sakura Stardust pens.

The paper strips around the top and sides is wrapping paper from Paperchase.  I layered fabric flowers and a crochet flower with a brad on the bottom left of the patterned oraganza ribbon and a little girl in a ‘pink dress’ on the left.

The journaling in tag is from 7 Gypsies 97% complete range.

Hope you like it!

Curly Days

This is Sketch #104 from Creative Scrappers and beneath is my take on it.

I really enjoying using this sketch as it prompted me to use flowers on a layout about myself, which is something I have always avoided for some reason.  The paper is by Bo Bunny and the alphas by Maya Road.

I ran the green card that is behind the photographs through the cuttlebug using the swirls folder and used a chipboard swirl spray with cosmic shimmer to compliment this.

Hope you like it.


Happy Campers

I l ove this paper, which I got from the US of A when I order a whole batch of bits and bobs that you cannot or never see in the UK.  I loved the print of the paper which has lovely colours.

I really only had to add the photograph, camping related words and the title and I as done.  I made a mat for the photograph by using orange core’dinations cardstock which I sanded heavily and then stamped little leaves on it.

Hope you like it.


Glammed Up

I love this layout, which is about me.  I don’t seem to do many about myself (probably as I don’t much like the photos).  This photo was taken as part of a makeover, which is probably why I like it.

The layout was put together using a kit I bought from Indigo Mill, which consisted of  Bazzill Bling cardstock, Crate Paper & MME papers as well as ribbons, buttons, AC vinyl alphas amongst other things.  I have made about 4 different projects from it so far and still have more left over.

Hope you like it.


Just a Little Snip

The photo in this layout was taken just after I decided to cut my own fringe.  My mother was cringeing as she couldn’t do anything about it.  The moment was recorded forever on film.

Dispite this I love the photo and makes  a fun picutre for a layout.

I will replace the photo as soon as I can.  I have a lot of early scrapbook layouts that I clearly need to re-photograph.

Hope you like it (what you can see of it that is)
