I love a good sketch to get my mojo going and this certainly did!
I have used the gorgeous Shimelle Little You collection which is available at Paper Issues! I have also used two of the flower free cut files from Paper Issues. I have added small hand cut flowers to the centres but chose to leave the larger rose white. I love adding vellum to my layouts to add a softness.
I then added the beautiful die cuts (ephemera) to embellish.
Head over to the blog to see more DT layouts and head to the Paper Issues shop to buy Shimelle Little You product.
Happy NSD my scrappy friends! I hope you have put aside some time to join in the many scrapbooking challenges that will be going on over the week end. I have already noticed so many sites are having discounts and specials on products yah!!! My first challenge layout is the sketch by Creative Scrappers especially created for today and you will love it. I have used Pretty Little Studios With all my Heart collection which is stunning. Have a wonderful week end of creating and celebrating our love of memory keeping and making 'pretty stuff'.
I was very flattered that Pretty Little Studio featured this layout on Instagram 7/5/17!
And it is all about Mothers Day, so get scrapping the boy/man in your life mums! My layout is of my gorgeous son number three! I have used Cocoa Vanilla Studio Wild at Heart collection and a lovely cut file from the Silhouette Design store. Head to the blog for all details. I can't wait to see what you create.
Your challenge is to think Throwback. Something that reminds you of something yesterday, it could be in the form of throwback papers, embellishments, style, colours etc.
When I started scrapping it was all about doilies, rosette flowers and big buttons! I have approached my layout with a modern twist using a fab doily cut file from Silhouette Design store. I have used a spring collection by Photo Play Paper called Bloom.
Head over to the blog for all the details and we do hope you will join us!

So in love with this collection by Claudia Van Rooijen and available at Pretty Little Studio I had to create another layout. My cut file is from Paper Issues and is free, how pretty is it! My flairs are from Cuts2luv. Today I was remembering my trip to Italy, Venice and hence my photo! Thank you for stopping by and here is the link to the Paper Issues blog if you would like the free heart cut file.
I finally got my hands on this gorgeous collection from Pretty Little Studio and it is just as stunning in real life! I have used a floral cut file and back some of them with patterned paper. There its lots of layering, sewing and blooms going on here! I adore this photo of my hubby and I, I needed to do a layout equally as lovely in design and collection choice. I may have added little not much on this layout or maybe its because my usual style is less is more! Anyway I hope you like it and check out #claudiavanrdesigns, her collections are just beautiful. Thank you for stopping by today.
This challenge is about using a quote on your layout! I have used Photo Play Rhapsody collection. I have scrapped my oldest and the quote is for her as she enters the adult world. We do hope you will join us in this challenge and please head over to the blog for all details and to see the other amazing DT layouts.
I have to say I was extremely flattered when paper house Productions asked if my layouts could be featured on their blog! These two layouts I had used the Hello Baby collection boy and girl. Head over to the blog to see the 'around the world' layout feature.
I love this new collection by Bella BLVD Pandas and Popsicles! It is super cute and the colours are gorgeous plus who can pass up cute panda bears. I have used two cut files from the Silhouette Design store, ice creams and summer flowers. This layout is all about sunshine and fun!
Very Flattered that this layout was featured by Bella BLVD 10/5/17 on Facebook and Instagram!
