Hello Love

6 April 2016

As promised I'm back with another layout and a video. I wanted it to be simple and focus on the photo of my husband and I. There aren't a lot of photos of us two and those we have are precious and special.

In the mean while ...

5 April 2016

While I'm waiting for my video to upload (still need to tweak it a little) I'm going to share two more layouts that I created.
For the first one I created a star cut file and used some funky colourful paper beneath. I kept the embellishments simple and didn't want to add too many layers. That way the photo and the cut are the centre piece of the layout.

The second layout was one I created for the hipkit DT call. I went with a yellow and grey colour scheme with a main element with a photo in the bottom left hand corner and a smaller duplicate with the title in the top right hand corner. This creates flow and balances out the page. The scattered butterflies guide the eye over the layout. Some of the butterflies are covered in washi tape to add a bit of detail as does a little bit of stitching. 

Both layouts were created from older stash and kits from the HipKitclub. I have decided to stop my subscription which makes me sad but I have some plans for home improvements and need to save a little. I might buy one or two collections but I really need to work through my stash.
See you later today or tomorrow with a little video.

Getting back into it

3 April 2016

Hello .... 
It has been a while. I have been resting and trying to get back into shape. I still experience pain daily but it is manageable and I'm working on strengthening my back. It is a long healing process and I might have a relapse but I am feeling a lot better. Getting to know my body and learn how to move correctly will in the long run help me. My back is my weak spot and I'll have to learn how to function differently.

I have been scrapbooing LOADS and I'm starting on filming my new class next week. I have so much to do but it'll be such fun. Today I have two layouts to show and I'll be back on Tuesday with a video.

This layout was created for a guest blog post at the CraftyMavenGetaway for a TwoPeas Throwback series.
You can see the video HERE:  Click here.

The second I made for the Design Team call for HipKit club. I wanted to get back into the DT business and decided to have a go. Unfortunately I didn't get picked. I really just wanted to get scrapbooking again and making two new layouts for the call got me back in the groove.
This is one of the layouts. White space, layers, a little reminder in the corner: all things I love in a layout.

 See you soon.
