Once Upon A Sketch - "MY LOVE"

So I have played along with Once Upon A Sketch this month with the journalling theme being 'The men in our lives...'. I created this page for my sisters wedding album and it all about her main man. I have also played along with the Sassy Scrapper August Mood Board as the colour and embellishment inspiration.



August sketch at Once Upon A Sketch.


So for this sketch I made it smaller and used round photos instead of square. I added a rub on to the front of the layout but I have journalled on the back of the layout.


"My Love"


I have lots of white space on this layout which is a bit different for me. but I had this photo taken from a distance and I just had to use it and by making everything on the page smaller I was able to make it the focus.


Materials Used

Prima Something Blue Stickers
Crafters Workshop Mini Hexagons Template
Prima Flowers Assorted
Kaisercraft Rub Ons
Kaisercraft Pearls
Shimmerz Magenta
Prima Pastel Green Chalk Ink
Prima Pastel Blue Chalk Ink
Prima Resin Frame

Scrap Around The World August Mood Board

So this month I decided to play along with the August Mood Board at Scrap Around The World, when I first saw the mood board I was totally inspired by the white, blue, aqua and yellow tones and then I saw the shoe I loved how the bottom of the shoe was made up of lines and I had an idea straight away of using this style in my background. The shoe, the flower clusters on the shoe, the detail in the staircase rails and the colours are the main inspiration behind my page.

So this is the mood board for the August challenge it can be found HERE.


It's just so feminine...absolutely gorgeous!! And this is the page I created for the challenge.

"Love Is A Moment"


I played with some chalkboard inks to create the washed background, topped with lots of fussy cut Pixie Glen patterned paper and then added a sprinkling of gorgeous flowers, pearls and bling.



I cut strips of paper and placed behind photo as my background to add interest.


Materials Used

Prima Pixie Glen Garden Gate

Molossi Chipboard Frame
Prima Interlude Flowers
Prima Marvelle Resin Treasure

Manor House Creations - Together Forever

Hi everyone!!

Long time between posts I know, today I have a layout to share that I created for Manor House Creations.

“Together Forever”



I created this layout with the gorgeous new “Beautiful You” Collection. When I first saw these papers I thought they were absolutely stunning and were screaming at me to be fussy cut. So off I went with my scissors and started cutting.



Because the pattern on this paper was simply beautiful on its own I created this page using the collection on its own. I did not feel it needed any extra flowers added to it.

I cut 2 Ornate Frames in half and only used the top peak pieces and tuck them in behind my layers to help frame the photo.

Product Used – Beautiful You Collection
BEA-04 Fresh & New
BEA-03 In My Thoughts
BEA-02 Journal Sheet
BEA-01 So You
MHRWH913 Ornate Frames – Regency White.
