Temple | NSD 2018

Hope you had a great National Scrapbooking weekend. I've not managed to get much scrapping done as I've been working nights.

I created an example for the GoGo Getaway sponsored challenge over on the 'For the love of pretty paper' UK scrapbooking Facebook group.

The challenge was in the form of a recipe so I collected my supplies before I started to create this page. Even though I had very limited supplies it's still very much my style. I've had these photos on my desk for ages and it feels so good to finally get them scrapped

What have you all been scrapping this weekend? Tag me on Instagram @terri_scraps to show me what you've created.

Happy Scrapping!

So Sweet | UK Scrap Addicts

Hello there, I'm up on the UK Scrap Addicts blog with a monochromatic layout using black, white and yellow.

This is one of my favourite layouts ever. I love how bold the yellow is against the black.

Be sure to check out my other layouts over on Instagram and Facebook.

Love This | GoGo Getaway Monthly Challenge

Wow, I literally cannot believe we are in May already.  So glad my mojo is back in full swing, my silhouette cameo is behaving and I'm loving documenting my travel memories. I've got a couple of scrappy retreats next month which I'm super excited about.

Today I'm sharing my layout I created for the GoGo Getaway Monthly Challenge.

This month's challenge was to use a sketch created by Design Team member Lorraine. I love to use a sketch and always find it a fantastic jumping off point.

For this layout I've used a selection of products from various different Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Collections. I created a watercolour paint background using the packaging technique and pale colours.

I backed a few cut file florals with patterned paper from the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection but as they didn't stand out I used my black ink pen to draw round the inner areas of the cut file to make them bold.

Finishing off with a scattering of stars and sequins.

I'd love you to tag me (@terri_scraps) if you join in with this month's challenge.

Happy Scrapping!

So Sweet | GoGo Getaway

I'm up on the GoGo Getaway Blog today with a layout showcasing my challenge from March's GoGo Getaway Scrapbooking Retreat. My challenge was technique based so I chose 'fussy cutting'. I love to fussy cut from patterned paper so it was the perfect challenge for me to set.

Guest Designer | The Wild Hare Kits

This month I was fortunate to be the Guest Designer over at The Wild Hare Kits. This kit company is different to any other I have ever known. You aren't 'subscribed' to the kit, you order them as and when you want them but they are individually curated by Alison especially to cater for your likes and style.

Below is the deluxe kit I was send and it fits me perfectly! I asked for supplies to allow me to scrap my recent travels and this kit was great.

I was able to create six 12x12 layouts and three 6x8 pocket pages with this kit. I still have plenty of left overs to use on future layouts. Here I'm sharing five of the 12x12 pages that have already been shared on social media.

I went for a vertical design incorporating lots of embellishments and banners cut from the Pink Paislee Paige Evans 'Pick me up' collection.

There were some bold green and yellow/rusty tones in some aspects of the kit so I embraced it in this layout documenting my fiancé and his love of steak.

This layout was part of a challenge with The Wild Hare Kits Design Team as this month they decided to scrap lift each other. I was assigned Clair Rigby (@obstinatepursuit) and loved the clean style of her layouts. I was drawn to one with multiple circles to scrap lift.

The layout above was the first I created with the kit. I used the monthly sketch over on the blog and I love how the added mixed media on the background grounds the photo.

I think this is my favourite layout made from the kit. I fussy cut all the moths from the 1canoe2 patterned paper to create this layout.

Thanks for reading my blog today. Don't forget to follow me on Facebook and Instagram for more scrapbooking and arty endeavours.

Thali | GoGo Getaway

I'm up on the GoGo Getaway blog with my take on the Coffee Filter Element technique.

Head over the blog to see the completed layout and information about how I created my embellishments.

Quiet Moments | Turn the Page

I started this layout whilst at the GoGo Getaway in November 2017. I made the background but then lost inspiration so put it away for another time. I had completely forgotten about it until a few weeks ago when I found it in my pile of patterned paper.

This layout uses the Pink Paislee Paige Evans 'Turn the Page' collection. I really love the colour scheme in this collection but for some reason haven't used it as much as I thought I would.

This layout documents a morning in Lithuania when I was really sick. We spent the whole morning in the warmth of this café/bookshop. I even fell asleep on the bench for a while.

The snail is random but it is such a cutie that I wanted to add it poking out from under the teacup.

Fabulous View | GoGo Getaway

Can you believe it's the end of February already, I know, crazy right?! So I'm back sharing another of my Design Team layouts, this time for the fabulous GoGo Getaway.

I'm up on the GoGo Getaway Blog today with a layout all about colour coordination using the Glitter Girl collection from Shimelle. I've had fun doing something I love to do, fussy cutting patterned paper.

Happy Crafting!

Clear the Desk Class | Take One

I've been a little MIA on the blog recently as I've been super busy since coming back from holiday. I joined Shimelle's new class Clear the Desk and had an unexpected free day yesterday so I played along for the whole day.

I've got loads of travel albums on the go so that was the main focus of the photos I chose. This layout is of the beautiful St Mary's Island at Mljet National Park, Croatia.

I collected together a few papers from older Simple Stories collections and some embellishments that co-ordinated with the papers. They mostly focus on summer scrapbooking but I've tailored it to use with my travel photos.

It worked really well with these cocktail photos from our most recent trip to Egypt.

The layout below was the first page I created and probably the hardest as like when you get a kit you have the most supplies to use at the beginning and its hard to see everything.

This layout will go along side the one below in my album so hopefully they should co-ordinate as they were created with the same supplies.

The layout above is probably my least favourite layout of the ones I created. But I do like how it looks like my other half is looking across to the other photo. 

I love using large photos and it is something I do from time to time. I get my large photos printed 9x12 and often trim them down a little to create a thinner photo.

I've had the woodgrain paper I used below for such a long time it was great to get it finally used up. 

I'm really happy with these pages and it was great to get some stories documented.
