Sketch It Out Thursday

Hi all,

It's been a busy start to Term 4 but I managed to do some scrapping! I created this layout for Sketch It Out Thursday.


I found this layout on Pinterest and then drew a sketch from it to use for this layout.
   

Here is the video:

Well that's it for today, happy crafting!
Take care,

Art Party Friday

Hi all,

I'm back with a quick post as I was up on The Crafty Maven Getaway channel yesterday for Art Party Friday.  When I sat down to scrap I looked to my right and found all my leftover supplies from Monday's lesson and because I had so much fun making that one I decided to do another similar style of layout. It's even purple again too!

Here is the accompanying video:

Well that's it for today, until next time . . .
Have fun and happy crafting,

School Holiday Scrapping

Hi all,

I just love school holidays, I can stay up late, scrapbook whenever I feel like it, watch t.v. oh and do those jobs on the holiday job list! I have sorted my wardrobe plus done some much needed gardening and also completed three layouts and three videos in the last week.

For Stash It Monday on The Crafty Maven Getaway channel I dove deep into my stash and created this purple layout. I used colouring mediums that haven't been used in quite some time too.

Here is the video:


Also for The Crafty Maven Getaway channel I created this layout for Free Flow Wednesday. I used mainly the Lovely Day collection by Dear Lizzy plus I added some wooden embellishments and coloured in the cars with Prismacolor pencils.

Here is the video for this layout.

The last layout for the week is one for the Challenge Your Stash YouTube hop group I belong to. The theme this month was Fall but as I am an Aussie and we are having Spring at the moment I looked through my photos and found this old one of me and although the photo was taken during springtime in Holland I could use fall colours with it, so I did!

And here's the video for this one!

That's it for me, although I am heading to the craft room this afternoon so more will follow soon.
Take care and happy crafting,

Scrapbooking Update

Hi all,

Oopsy! I haven't updated my blog for over a month, however, I have made a layout or two and recorded a couple of videos.

My latest layout/video went live today and it was a Sketch It Thursday layout. I used the 15th September sketch from Stuck Sketches and created a layout (and video) about my pet frogs' visit to school. Here it is:





Also this month I created a scrap lift layout using the summer collection from Felicity Jane. I scrap lifted a layout by Jessica Fabiano from the Hip Kit Design Team.



Finally, I also a layout for Free Flow Wednesday, albeit it was a bit layout being uploaded as I was sick and had to have quite a few days off work just love the winter lurgies. It is a layout about when I went to watch some boys from my class play football one Saturday morning.


Well that's it for my update.

Take care and happy crafting,

Weekend Fun!

I'm back!

Seems like there are 3 posts this weekend, however, one was in my drafts and I forgot to post it but it's done now . . oops!

I have also played along with the Stuck Sketches' 1st August sketch and here is what I created:



Plus I have created (finished off) another layout using Make Your Mark from Bella Blvd.

Crafty Maven Getaway Layouts

Hi all,

Hope everyone is doing great, life has been hectic at work and then I got sick and had a real husky voice for a few days but feeling much better now and looking forward to a weekend of scrapping fun with a couple of my Scrapbook Besties!

I've had a few videos go live in the last few weeks (and a few more coming up soon). They have both been layouts for the Crafty Maven Getaway channel. This one went live yesterday, albeit a bit late due to my sickness, and it was for Art Party Friday last week.

Here is the video:

Take care and happy crafting,

August's Challenge Your Stash Layout and Video

Hello everyone!

I'm having a marvellous time this weekend as two of my close friends have stayed over and we have been scrapbooking, talking and eating for the last 2 days. I managed to fit in the filming, recording and uploading of this month's Challenge Your Stash video.

Our theme is pets and I dug in my stash and found some Teresa Collins Nine & Co from 2014 and used that. I also used the Stuck Sketches August 15th sketch for my layout design. Here are my layout and Laura's great sketch:


Here is the link to my video:



I'll be back soon with all the layouts I've made this weekend.
Take care and happy crafting,
Helen xx
