Happy | For the Love of Pretty Paper Guest Design

Sunday, 9 December 2018



Hi! I'm a guest designer for For the Love of Pretty Paper today. It's part of the Winter Olympics challenges and this challenge was to incorporate fussy cutting or handstitching or stamping. Well I rose to the challenge and used all three!


 I've used the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio Midnight collection. I fussy cut lots of flowers and also applied some mixed media colours to the background. I layered the fussy cut flowers on top of the water colour area. I added my photo on top of the flowers.


I then made a jar: I cut the shape from one the papers and cut strips for the lid. I also added some plastic packaging on top and stitched them together and made a little shaker pocket by inserting some chipboard hearts and sequins.


 I also hand stitched around the edge of the layout and added a 'Happy' Perspextive by Bramblefox. I stamped some small hearts and added several stickers to the layout and handwrote in my journaling.


Thanks for joining me today and head over to For the Love of Pretty Paper Facebook Group to join in with the Winter Olympic challenges, they are so much fun!

Christmas Countdown | Hip Kit Club Design Team

Saturday, 8 December 2018



Hey there, I was up on the Hip Kit Club Facebook Page yesterday sharing this layout which I made following the HKC Weekly Sketch which you can find on their Facebook Group.

I've used the fabulous November Kits to make this layout and the gorgeous Scandi Numbers cut file which was from Day 4 of the 12 Days of Giving. I cut the numbers out of different coloured cardstock and arranged them as per the sketch instead of using the paper layers that were represented on it. Our assignment this week was also to make a Christmas layout using the November kits - well I definitely managed that!

I've created a process video for this layout too which can be viewed below. Happy scrapping xxx

Frightful | Hey Little Magpie Challenge

Sunday, 2 December 2018



I do love a challenge and every month a DT member sets one over at Hey Little Magpie. This month it's Rachel's turn and she has set a sketch challenge. I've interpreted in my own way and adapted it to suit my style - sketches are only a starting point right?!

I've scrapped my Halloween photos becuase I wanted to get these scrapped and use up my Halloween stash and use those lovely Bramblefox Perspextives. I've used a mix of Halloween collections and have specifically used a black background and nuvo drops as it's Rachel's challenge!

Head over to the Hey Little Magpie Papercraft and Scrapbooking Chat and Inspiration Facebook Group to join in - there are prizes!

Happy scrapping, Niki xx
