Star Student | Doodlebug Design

Last weekend I went to the Scrapwereld Scrap Weekend in Almere and had such a great time! I've met so many new wonderful people and we talked and laughed a lot (and scrapped a lot too of course). I'm so grateful for Wendy from Scrapwereld for persuading me to come too! At first I thought I'd better not go as my friends couldn't go and I don't feel comfortable going somewhere on my own when I don't know anyone (well, almost no-one). I'm so glad I got out of my comfort zone and went on my own! I wouldn't have wanted to miss it for the world! 

Wendy brought lots of stuff from the store so we could shop as well. Of course I bought lots of Doodlebug stuff: everything from the Christmas collection (some of the things twice) and also the School Days collection, which I used straight away. Here's what I made:

My youngest had such a wonderful school report that I wanted to scrap a page about it. Luckily he still agrees when I want to take his picture! 

Here are a few close-ups:

I'm so in love with all the Doodlebug owls, I just had to include one in my page!

Isn't this collection just perfect?! I adore all the colors and all the little bits and pieces! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a happy day!

LOVED | Pink Paislee | My Creative Scrapbook

Today I'm sharing another layout created with the October Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook. I wanted to do a boys layout with this kit and found a recent photo of "my" three men: my husband and two sons. that I wanted to scrap. This is what I made:

I really like the result even though I used some paper with a flower design! The colors of the papers match exactly the colors in my photo. I so love it when that happens, lol. 

Those puffy stickers are my favorite kind of stickers! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! If you want to see the kit I used, filled with the Truly Grateful collection from Paige Evans/Pink Paislee, hop over to the website of My Creative Scrapbook

Happy crafting!

Hello friends! I'm sharing another one of my layouts featuring my cute English Cocker Spaniel puppy. I got her the end of September when she was only 8 weeks old and I just can't stop taking her photo. As I totally adore her I wanted to use a cut file with hearts and found this "circle filled with hearts" cut file called "Heart is Full Background" and thought it was perfect!

This is the page I created:

And this is the "Heart is Full Background" cut file I used:

As we got our puppy in the beginning of the Fall I decided to use a Fall collection to scrap her photo. Another reason I wanted to use a Fall collection is the color; our puppy is an orange roan, so Fall colors really! The collection I used is "Celebrate Autumn" by Echo Park.

Here are a few close-ups of my layout, I love all the chipboards in this collection, like this little fox:

As the background is kind of "busy", I wanted a title that stood out and used these large black foam letter Thickers.

My puppy's name is "Ginny" and I used letter stickers from Doodlebug Design to add her name to the layout:

The enamel hearts and dots I used to fill lots of the white spaces are from Lily Bee Design.

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at what I created. If you're looking for fun background cut files as well (or any other cut file) then hop over to the JustNick store, there are so many!

ADORE | My Creative Scrapbook

Happy Saturday everyone! Today I'm sharing a step-by-step for one of the layouts I created with the October Main Kit from the kit club "My Creative Scrapbook". I think this kit is my favorite to date! It's filled with the awesome "Truly Grateful" collection from Paige Evans/Pink Paislee. I love how colorful this kit is!

A few weeks ago we had this furry sweetie joining our family and of course I only want to scrap her photos now. Here's what I made:

And here's how I created this page. I gathered all my supplies:

I used some templates from my stash (Technique Tuesday) to draw 6 different sized hearts and hand cut them:

I adhered the largest heart on my layout and machine stitched two times around it: 

Next I glued the other hearts on top with just the minimum of adhesive, machine stitched right through the middle and folded the sides a little upwards:

I love that all the papers in this collection have two awesome sides! Before I stitched the hearts in place I had a hard time choosing which side should go up! 
Next I decorated the inside of the top heart with words from the Truly Grateful cardstock sticker sheet:

After decorating the heart a bit more with some of the Truly Grateful puffy stickers I started on the photo of my puppy. I printed a square 10 cm x 10 cm photo of her and matted it on a piece of patterned paper. Both at the bottom and at the top of the photo I added a die-cut with a few puffy stickers:

In the right bottom corner of my layout I added a few more cardstock and puffy stickers and the date stamp:

On the right side of the hearts I added a few more die-cuts and puffy stickers and around the entire layout I drew a black line.  

A few drops of ink and my page is done!  

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I hope you have enjoyed my step-by-step.
