National Scrapbooking Day 2018 ~ Rescrap your old layout #4 ~ Blessed Happiness

Hey everyone,
Are you ready for my 4th and final sketch for National Scrapbooking Day 2018?

This is the original layout that I wanted to re-scrap!

Ehm. I did manage to matt the photo but thats about all I did. So im not sure this even qualifies as a "re-do" LOL
Firstly, the photo proportions are off! Its too large and it was cropped too close and a bit of centre.

I re-printed it and left it at it's original measurements. For the extra space on the right, I decided to utilise it as journaling space and I love how it turned.
This sketch is AWESOME for scrap pieces of papers that you want to use up. I still ended up using Echo Park's "I'd rather be crafting" patterned papers from the May Kit and I adore how well thy all go together and co-ordinate very nicely.

I decided to place a piece of vellum so that my sentiment would stand out.

The sentiment and all the "bits and pieces" on each square come from the Crafty Girl Sticker Pad by Simple Storie…

National Scrapbooking Day 2018 ~ Rescrap your old layout #3 ~ JOY

Hey everyone,
I have another re-scrap for you!

This is the one I am most embarrassed to share with you!!

It looks like I was experimenting with stamping and chalking and well, it doesn't look too good to me right now (I don't know if it ever did).
Here is the sketch I will be following.

I started off choosing a pink and teal color scheme for the layout.
I then went about cutting strips of patterned paper from the I'd rather be Crafting Echo Park collection in the May Kit from Aunty Vera Scrap & Craft.

The strips are 6" tall and vary in wide from 1" to 3".
The teal paper is 5.75"H x 11.5"W.
I also decided that the picture need another patterned paper to matt behind it.
(although I did trim the matt a little bit more after taking this picture as I realised it was a little too large).

Next, I dipped into my stash and I mean my OLD collectables because I pulled out this 2014 collection from Kaisercraft called Hello Sunshine- full of cute little a…

Pull String Art- ATCS and Booklet ~

Hi everyone,
Still having a lot of fun with pull string art.
If you missed my first Pull String Art Video, you can find it HERE Today Im making miniature versions for an ATC Swap using Dylusions Paint and Ranger's Re-inkers for more medium variation.
As well as the ATCs, Im making a little booklet out of one sheet of card stock to put the ATCs into. I then go on to add sentiments to each piece and decorate the cover.
Check these beauties out- which one is your favourite?

I broke this up into 2 tutorials:
ATCS - Part 1 Booklet - Part 2
Would love your hear your thoughts below.

National Scrapbooking Day 2018 ~ Rescrap your old layout #2 ~ Loved

Hey everyone,
Are you ready for another sketch to re-scrap another layout??

Here it is (Although as you'll soon see, I sort of didn't stick to it)

And here is the original layout that I wanted to re-scrap.

Cute picture- totally needs a re-scrap though- not so fond of terracotta and yellow.  Or flower punch art!!
I am in love with this cork patterned paper from the May Kit  from Aunty Vera Scrap & Craft. It's the back of this 3"x4" journaling cards paper from Echo Park (which in itself gave me a lot of grief- see the video).

I also totally loved this yellow cross stitched pattern paper.  The back of another 4"x4" journaling card paper.  Another dilemma!

From the May Kit, I also reached for the I'd rather be crafting co-ordingating solid papers and chose the teal and yellow combination.

This is what I used to matt the photo.

I also decided to only use half of each paper and wrestled with which journaling cards to keep and which to sacrifice.

In t…
