Scrap The Boys February 2019 | My Happy Place | A Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone and hello February!! Yikes! Anyone else like me counting down the few days left of the school holidays?! Monday can’t get here fast enough but it is the end of a long day today and tomorrow is a new day (and month πŸ˜‰ )

Today I have my February share for Scrap The Boys and just as a side note, this is my 13th share for STB! I have officially been a part of the team for 12 months this month ❀ Here is the mood board

And we are again being sponsored by CUT to YOU designs.Β 

I was inspired by the blues and the general feeling of calmness and serenity I got when I looked at the mood and picked the “My Happy Place” cut file by Gwen. It is not quiet available as this goes live but it will be at 6pm Queensland time as it is part of the awesome February release! I had fun backing this file and handstitching the script word in the middle!

I have used lots of Cocoa Vanilla Studio goodies and Shimmerz goodies for this page and I really love the end result!

Splatters but not a lot of mess! I’ve used all Shimmerz products for my splatters and they are Shimmerz – Anchors Away and Colder Than Ice, Creameez – Ride The Tide and Inklingz – Oakie Bear Blue (this is one of my all time fave colours in fact!!).

Lots of different patterned papers behind my cut file and photo that came from the More Than Words 6×6 paper pad by CVS.

And, as you can see, florals!! All the beautiful florals from the same collection, swoon!

You can see the entire STB team takes on the challenge over here and also load up your take on the challenge for this month.
I have a process video for you today as well, the voice over is a bit dodgy, I’m tired! It’s the end of the school holidays and I’m a bit worn out lol You can always mute me!! Either way, I hope you enjoy my process and I can’t wait to see what you create this month!

Until my next share, happy scrapping!



{Charm’s Creations Guest DT} My Sweet Boy ~ A Scrapbook Page

Hey everyone and welcome to my blog this cold and wet weekend!

A quick share for you today sharing one of my makes for Charm as her guest designer for July. Which I have LOVED! And I plan on using MORE charms between now and the end of the month πŸ˜‰ Perhaps even more videos too πŸ˜‰

Anyways, I decided to play along with Charm’s June & July challenge of scraplifting a DT member and I chose one of Charm’s very own pages – I just love everything about her style and perhaps may have even found another page or 2 to hopefully lift πŸ˜‰

But here is the page I am lifting

And here is my take on this awesome page

I have pulled another of my fave Cocoa Vanilla Studio collections, More Than Words, and used one of my all time fave papers as the background and lots of pieces from the 6×6 paper pad for all those gorgeous layers Charm has used in her page. And those very pretty doilies!

Here are a few close ups, mostly of those gorgeous Pastel Glitter Hearts, aren’t they just gorgeous?!

I decided to give my title on this gorgeous yellow star. I’ve used a piece of veneer from another CVS collection and paired that with those AWESOME tiny white foam thickers.

I’ve tucked in a couple of labels and flair behind this very pretty star. And again with the white foam thickers cause the star was looking a little lonely!

And of course, more of those tiny foam thickers – I didn’t want this one all alone either πŸ˜‰ – on this gorgeous pastel green star.

I have a process video up for this page as well, just click on the link below and enjoy!!

Make sure you head on over to Charm’s FB page here and take a look in the girls albums so you can play along with scraplifting a DT member – so much inspiration in their albums!! And you can head over here to the Charm’s store to shop up a storm!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and see you again very soonΒ 



{Scrap The Boys} Love You ~ April 2018 Chellenge

Oh my goodness!! April ALREADY! Now that I am over the initial shock that the first quarter of 2018 is done onto my share!! Today’s is for Scrap The Boys and we are going geo this month!! My very 1st thought was STARS, of course, but I decided to do something different and went with squares/rectangles – rectangles because free handing squares is too hard to get it just right πŸ˜‰ lol

Here is my page

And process video

This month we are sponsored by Cocoa Vanilla Studio and I have used mostly some of the new More Than Words collection, but have also thrown in a couple of pieces from older collections and love how this page came together!

This was super fun – I loved doing the stitching in the back ground the most I think!! For those lines I used my t-square ruler and drew 3 vertical and 3 horizontal lines without paying any attention to exactly where they were, I used them more as a guide for straightness than a “stitch here” guide.

Of course, mixed media fun in the back ground using some of my fave Colour Blast colours and you can see all of that on the video!

Here are a few close ups, I hope you enjoy and we would love to see you share your take over on the blog this month. Make sure you pop over to check out all of the other A-MAZING girls’ takes on the challenge for lots of inspo!!!

Until next time, happy scrapping!!
