Scrap the Boys | January 2021 | Dirty Feet are the Happiest Ones!!

Hey and hello my scrappy friends and a very big Happy 2021!! I hope that however you welcomed the New Year you are not paying too heavily for it today lol

My first share for 2021 is my take on the beautiful mood board for Scrap the Boys for January 2021.

I was totally inspired by the colours in the mood board for this page and actually pulled a back ground that I had already started on without any actual plan for!

I had pre-stamped this white card stock background with Heidi Swapp Toner Ink using some Tim Holtz and PinkFresh Studio stamps and left it to await the “right” page. When I saw this mood board I chose orange foil and then used blues and teals over the top.

I seriously LOVE how this background came together! Like, seriously! And the most interesting bit is that I probably wouldn’t have chosen this colour scheme with out the mood board prompt.

When I finally decided on my photo the rest of my page came together pretty quickly! I added some Heidi Swapp foil to some alpha stickers to get a perfect match and also pulled out a bunch of Minc stickers, paper and ephemera pieces to add and layered things up until I was happy. You can see my process on the video link below!

I can’t wait to see how the mood board inspires you this month! Head over here to load up your take on the challenge. And over here to see the other amazing DT creations for more inspiration! And here are a few close ups for you!

I hope you have enjoyed and I look forward to sharing more with you soon! Fingers crossed for coming up with a plan AND sticking to it for 2021 for me lol Happy scrapping!!

Scrap the Boys | November 2020 | Cousins Happy Together

Hello, hello my scrappy friends and a big welcome to my blog today, the 1st of November! Can you even believe it?!?

And this month we have a fun sketch challenge for you all! I don’t know about you but I just love a sketch, especially when my mojo is taking a holiday!

As soon as I saw this sketch I was drawn to my stash of Elle’s Studio goodies!! Those labels, circles and stars down the right just screamed “Elle’s Studio” at me!

I’ve used lots of different products but started with the May and June 2020 kits, specifically the “Summer Fun” Paper Stack for that blue block of pattern on the right hand side. From there I chose my colour scheme and pulled out all of the yellow, blue, red bits and pieces that fitted with the sketch/layout design.

As usual, I also have a process video for you which I hope you enjoy! Just hit that play button below 🙂

So, make sure you head over here for the rest of the DT’s inspirational shares and over here to the FB group to upload your take on this fun sketch! I’ll leave you with a few close ups!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll be back soon with my next share! Until then, happy scrapping!!

STB October 2019 | Super Awesome

Hey my scrappy friends and welcome to my blog today!! My share today is for the Scrap The Boys October challenge.


I just love sketches so was excited when I saw that this was the challenge for this month! Here is my take


You can see I have stuck very closely to the sketch but yet still made it a definite “Melinda page”


I jumped into my Cocoa Vanilla Studio “boy” stash, specifically to start with my “Boys Rule” collection which I just LOVE!!


I’ve used papers Happy Go Lucky, Good Times and Straight & Narrow for my 3 biggest background pieces and just love that pop of lime green in the middle!


This was all looking way too clean for me so I grabbed a couple of stamps and some black Versafine ink and stamped in a couple of pieces on my background layers. I’ve also added some splatters using green, blue and a grey.


I’ve used a couple more paper layers, one scrap from a 12×12 and some from the 6×8 paper pad. I added in a few ephemera pieces for layers as well.


My title pieces came from the CVS You Rock collection and so too did the film strip tucked into my layers.


I added in my journalling to one of the cut aparts from the 6×8 paper pad, right where the middle photo is on the sketch. And finally, some enamel shapes sprinkled around. So excited, I FINISHED a package of something lol


Unfortunately, due to some stupid tech issues I have no video for this page but I still hope you enjoyed!! Touch wood, all my tech issues seem to be sorted now so more videos coming soon!!

Make sure you head over here for the other girls’ takes on this fun sketch and to enter your own page for this months challenge. Remember, I may have followed the sketch very closely but if it inspires you in another way just go for it and enjoy the process!!!

Until the next time, happy scrapping!
