Hey Pumpkin! | ScrapTube UK Hop Autumn or Halloween Theme

Saturday 31 October 2020

Hey everyone and welcome to the ScrapTube UK Autumn/Halloween Hop.

A group of us have put together this fun YouTube hop, all themed for Autumn or Halloween.

  To see the full YouTube Hop, watch my video below and you will find all the links in my description below the video. Simply click on the next person on the list.

 For my layout today I have used two Peartree Cut Files cut files to make the spider web and spiders background. I've then added lots of fun embellishments. Some are from the Pebbles Spoooky collection which is available at Lottie Loves Paper, and some are Perspextives by Bramble Fox. I added a title using phrase Thickers from my past Halloween stash and finished off with black ink splatters and gorgeous sequins by Spiegelmom Scraps.

Thanks so much for joining me and happy scrapping and HAPPY HALLOWEEN! 

Enjoy the rest of this fabulous hop!

Happy Haunting | GoGo Getaway Cyber Crop | Shape Challenge


Hey everyone, I have a new layout for GoGo Getaway today as part of the GoGo Getaway Cybercrop that is taking place today. Head over to the GoGoGetaway Facebook Group to join in. We are collaborating with Peartree Cut Files today so there are some freebies up for grabs.

The shape challenge is to use stars, clouds and a moon. I've managed to use all three in my halloween themed layout.

I've used Pebbles Spoooky collection and cut some stars from patterned paper using metal dies. I made some clouds from glitter paper and added a chipboard moon.

I used a large piece of patterned paper for my background which was a bit bright, so I toned it down a bit using a vellum overlay. I then added loads more stars to this area, wood veneer ones that I then painted with silver paint.

I have added a few fun halloween embellishments and also added perspextives from Bramble Fox.

Thanks so much for joining me today. Head over to the Facebook group to play along - there are prizes :)

Happy scrapping

A Very Spoooky Banner | Lottie Loves Paper

Friday 30 October 2020



Hey everyone, I have a new 'project' to share today...not a layout! Basically I've been making lots of Halloween layouts lately with the Spoooky collection by Pebbles, and I had SOOOOOO much ephemera left over that I decided to make a home decor banner, loaded full of fun Halloween icons, to hang on my stairs.

I made a simple banner back in May for my husband's 40th birthday, which has sat in the cupboard unused ever since, so I decided to re-purpose it. I took the 40 off five pennants so was left with five plain black pennant shapes...then I began loading!

First I added pom pom trim around the outside edges of the pennants. I stitched these in place. I added dangling charms to the bottom point of each pennant too.

I wrapped bakers twine around one, and cut some cut files by Peartree Cut Files (Spider web and Potions) out of silver glitter paper and added those. I added fun titles to the pennants: Yikes, Boo, Spooky and Scary.

For one of the pennants, I cut three star shapes using metal dies and turned them into glitter and sequin shaker pockets.

I also made the CUTEST witches broomstick, totally inspired by Shara Crane and the ones she makes, it was so fun to make!

This banner is now hanging proudly on my stairs, above all our fabulous pumpkins we have carved this year!

Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope you have enjoyed this slightly different project from me! There is a process video that can be viewed below.

Happy Halloween and happy scrapping
