Four Today

Monday, 8 May 2017

I am up today on the Stick It Down blog with my sample layout using this month's Double Sketch. I stuck pretty close to the sketch although I moved my photos around a bit. There's machine stitching on the two end pieces of patterned paper and around the edges of the layout, and I have used the #whatever collection by Simple Stories and quite a few bits from the April Freckled Fawn embellishment kit.

Thanks for looking and happy scrapping

For the Love of Pretty Paper NSD Bloghop

Sunday, 7 May 2017

This post is part of the National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop hosted by

 the Facebook Group “For The Love Of Pretty Paper”

 If you are following the hop you should have arrived here from Crafty Little Bling

To be in with a chance of winning the Blog Hop prize you will need to comment on this post (and on all the blogs in the hop) and when you have completed the hop, return to the Blog Hop thread on “For The Love Of Pretty Paper” and leave a comment to let us know you have been all the way around the hop. Visitors who leave the same (or seen to be the same by the Organisers) comment on all the blogs will not be eligible for the prize. The Closing date for Blog Hop entries is Monday 8th May at 10pm. Only Uk addresses are eligible for the prize due to postage costs. Good Luck!

After your visit here please hop on to Chatty Crafty Arty Pig and if you lose your way or you want to start at the beginning of the hop you can find the complete list on the Facebook page here or on Fiona’s blog 

The theme for the Blog Hop is “Favourite Technique” and my favourite technique at the moment is using my Silhouette sketch pens to drawn a design onto white card, and then colour that design with paints. I'm using the Imagination Crafts 'Starlights' paints a lot right now as well as two sets of watercolour paints, one regular and one pearlescent.

For this layout I've used the Dear Lizzy collection 'Lovely Day' for a background sheet and a number of embellishments from the same collection

Happy hopping!
