{ScrappingClearly} Hello Olaf ~ A Scrapbook Page

Hi there my scrappy friends and fellow ScrappingClearly fans! I’m here with you sharing some inspiration for the fun July sketch challenge over at ScrappingClearly! You still have a few days left to get your entries in so make sure you head over to the FB group here to upload your take!

Today I am using the beautiful Pink Paislee C’est La Vie collection to document the day we met and brought home our bunny Olaf!

Here is the sketch in case you have missed it


And here is my take on the sketch!
I really, really loved this months sketch, once again designed by Peg – it was super fun to work with!


I have stayed pretty true to the sketch though I moved what I read as the stitching around the whole page further out and changed up 1 photo for 3. You’ll notice too that my title and journalling, though they take up the same space on the page as the sketch, are also changed up a bit!

I started with a quick coat of clear gesso all over the background paper (paper #10) and then grabbed my Metallic Mint gelato and mixed it with some water to make a watercolour paint for the background! I’ve also added in a couple of swipes of my Lime gelato. Doesn’t it look great! It’s hard to capture the sparkly finish on camera but, swoon!


I knew I wanted to line my photo’s up across the page over the watercolour and had decided to fussy cut some flowers from Paper #8 to layer behind the photo’s as well and LOVE how this looks!


I grabbed the ephemera pack for the big “hello” piece which I knew I was going to use for my title and also a gold edged label for the date. The black and white stripped alpha’s are from my stash.


I wanted to bring that yellow up the page so grabbed that yellow washi strip from the washi pack and layered that behind my photo at the top. While I had the washi out I tore off a small piece to go under my title.

I have used some of the cork hearts and black tiny vellum word stickers to finish my page off.



Oh, I have also used some scraps from Paper #3 & Paper #2 for layers behind my photo’s.

My process video is linked below if you would like to see my page come together


And that is that!! So, thank you for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you to pull out some goodies and play along with the July challenges in the last few days of the month!


Until next time, happy scrapping!!

{ScrappingClearly} Goggles and Hunter

Hi there fellow ScrappingClearly fans, I’m here with you (again!!!!) today and I am super excited to share my take on this month’s super fun and bright mood board designed by the very talented Peg from the design team!

Here is a little refresher:


Ah!!! I seriously love it! I do have to admit, I was a little unsure to start with. That is until I started flipping through my printed photos and this one of my baby just jumped out at me as perfect for this board! And paired with my favourite collection, of all time, ever!! Starshine by Shimelle Laine 😀

Here is my take:


And here is my process video for this LO



I really, really, really love how this turned out!! I cut the title on my cameo and then backed each letter with some offcuts from the 6×6 paper pad. Oh, after I did some playing with gelato’s and water and some Colour Paste!

A couple of little layers behind the photo – more scraps, a piece from the ephemera pack and a clear sticker. And then, a fun, rainbow border around the left and top – again, more scraps! If you watched my last process video you would have seen me “screw up” the other side of this paper (it has all the little stars on it – one of my fave papers, ever!!), so I stuck down the 2 sides I had applied gesso too, attached to my white cardstock and saved the left overs from behind the white cardstock 😉



Last up I added in some black splatters, my journalling, some stitching around 2 sides, a little stamping and a sharpie pen to outline each letter in the title!


You still have 2 whole weeks to enter the challenges this month so make sure you head over to the FB group here to load up your entries to go into the draw for a voucher to the store!

Also, did you see that ScrappingClearly have just launched some awesome online classes with members of the DT teaching?! There are still a few days left to sign up to the 1st class with Skai so if your interested you can find all the info here.

Thanks as always for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!
