{ScrappingClearly} Beautiful ~ A Scrapbook Page

Hey again scrappy friends! I know it was only yesterday I shared but I am here with you again today to share my take on the August moodboard challenge!

If you have yet to see it here is a quick refresher!


And you do still have some time up your sleeves if you’ve been meaning to and simply haven’t gotten to it yet!! Load up your entry here in the FB group!

Here is my take on the challenge and it is quiet simple for me but I really love the finished page! I have used the very spring like “Spring Fling” collection by Pebbles and can’t wait to pull this out again and get creating again!


This is another page where I am scrapping a Honeymoon photo. We headed to Malaysia for our Honeymoon 10 years ago and spent some time in Langkawi and also KL. As tourists, of course, we had to visit the tourist places and one of our stops was the KL Butterfly Park and I did this page as a kind of “title” page for this part of our album.

I started with this paper for my background and love the neutral base colour it gives as a background!


I have used the gorgeous puffy stickers and some of the ephemera pieces from the Spring Fling collection by Pebbles for my simple clusters along with a label from my stash which I cut in half.



This gorgeous title piece is gold glitter by Heidi Swapp and the glitter doesn’t come off – winning!!
The other alpha is from my stash.


Like I said, a pretty simple layout but I love it!

I hope I have given you some last minute inspiration to join in on the challenges for August and I’ll see you again next month!

Happy scrapping!

{K+ August Guest} My Darling Big Boy ~ A scrapbook page

Hey, hey scrappy friends! I have a relatively quick share for you today but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my end result and am super duper excited to share!

So, of late I have been playing along with the very awesome and fun challenges over at Kraft Plus Challenges and I was lucky enough to be asked by Sandra to be their guest designer for August!! I gotta tell you, when the message came through I literally squealed!!

So, if you have yet to see this month’s challenge it is “be inspired by trees” and I will be honest and tell you that I struggled with this for a couple of weeks before my idea came to fruition! 


First I thought “christmas trees” and then I was thinking tree colours and then I was stuck again. So, google to the rescue! I simply searched “tree quotes” and found this one


Inspiration struck and off I went! I used my cameo to draw out a tree shape BIG on my background and then used my amazing Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Cubes to colour it up! 


I won’t get into too much detail but we are having a few issues with my biggest littlest man so right now we are on a very emotional ride and doing the best we can (as all Mums and Dads do!!) and this was therapy for me. And a big long letter to my biggest boy on the back of the page, just for him, from me. Here are a few close up details.


I have incorporated the advice from a tree tucked into a bag behind the photo and something I hope he takes with him throughout his life, I believe some very worthwhile lessons/advice 😉


A few florals, I mean we are talking trees and leaves and he CHOSE to have his face painted as a rainbow butterfly, some splatters, sequins and hand stitching to finish it off!

I did record my process so if you’d like to see this page come together please just click below and watch away!


Sandra and all the K+ team, I so love your challenges every single month, with this month being no exception, so a massive thank you for inviting me along to be a guest this month! It was a true pleasure and honour!

So, that’s it for me for today, I have some other projects coming up this week so until then, happy scrapping!!
