Live more - for SUYS

Hi there, 
I’m sharing my page for Show us your Stuff! And I did make a quick video for it too. 
This months challenge was to use metals on your page.

I used a few metal pieces and also used handmade products from Kit the Habit. 

I love how this page turned out. 

And I hope you check out my video. My beautiful Son Jude has been creating music for my layouts and this piece of music is his latest creation 💕

Till next time,

Right now - by Emma for Scrappingclearly

Can these weeks go any faster????
How has yours been so far? I’m here to hopefully share a little mid week inspiration and creation.
This month at Scrappingclearly we have some awesome challenges to get your scrap supplies excited.
So to start of the month I chose to try out the sketch......

Yep I couldn’t play with the sketching in its ‘normal’ way so I flipped it and swapped sides 😜 

I did go with the concept of the circles and the paint splatters. I used a few different mediums on the base including 2 different Ranger Distress oxides (wild honey & iced spruce)
I also used one of the Ranger distress collage mediums in vintage to see what it was like. Love it!!!

Then I stamped using a new Darkroom door stamp I recently purchased.
This stamp is awesome, it really transfers great on any paper and medium.

To add under my photo I used a few different tags this time instead of papers. I used an assortment from the Heidi Swapp decorative tags and I used one Heidi Swapp fabric tag that I coloured with the oxides.

Finishing it off with a few bits and pieces from my stash, and this layout was complete.
I hope it gives a little inspiration for your mid week hump.
I look forward to seeing your creations using this sketch.
Have a scrapping good time.
Love Em. Xx

Shine - with Emma

Happy hump day everyone.
Today on the Scrappingclearly blog
I'm sharing a layout that is inspired by the 'spring word', shown in the mood board challenge we have this month.
Now I must admit I wasn't sure how to tackle this moodboard, as there is much to choose from.
So the shiny bling word and a few of the colours is what I went with. ☺️ 

Ok so I know the word is the only good bling I have but the colours also reflect some of those in the board too 😜

It was fun to create this one and rather easy.
I started with a few assorted mists and some of the amazing oxide inks!
I also used a Colour blast paste through a stencil to give it texture and then
I then layered a few of the smaller frames from the Simple Stories Carpe Diem range.

After this I layered a Heidi Swapp canvas tag under my photo.

Using just a couple of letters from Studio Calico gold stickers I placed the B and the U to show we can express ourselves.
And then I used a few sequins to pull it all together. 

And lastly I used the very gold blinged Heidi Swapp 'shine' word to create my title.

I really enjoyed getting a little artsy with this page.

I also made a video of this layout being created and would love you to check it out 😊

What do you see in this months moodboard?
Can't wait to see how you interprete it.
Till next time, Em. 😘

Happy - with Emma

 Hi scrappingclearly peeps.
Today I'm sharing a layout I had fun creating, featuring a friend that means so much to me.
It features many great products that I have been playing a lot with of late.
(See product list at end of post)

I've been havering fun with the use of the Cedar Lane collection and On Trend 2 collection
I can never just stick to using one collection at a time but rather love to mix them together. 

My title is a Heidi Swapp chipboard's so sparkly 😝 
These words are the best 'statement' pieces 😉

I used a couple of MME puffy stickers around. I think I've said it before, but I'm really not good at journaling straight onto my pages so I love stickers and journal cards to cut up and do the talking for me.

These Cedar Lane arrows are the perfect combo of sparkle, colour and texture that compliment any page.

This was a nice quick, bright layout that was fun to create.
I hope it stirs a little creativity for you.
I'll catch you all soon.

Products used: Pink Paislee Cedar Lane

Run wild and free

Hi everyone.
Today I’m sharing my DT layout for this months ‘Scrap the boys challenge’ 

It was based on a sketch 😊 

I wanted it to stay simple but eye catching. 
I think I managed that 😉😂 

Plenty of layers. 

I hope you play along too. 
See you all soon.

Laugh - with Emma

Woohoo it’s Saturday!! 
Which means family time and Scrapbooking 😉 
Today I’m sharing a page that is created along with this months Sketch challenge here at ScrappingClearly. 

I’m a total sucker for Snapchat Filters!! 
I mean they are just too much fun. 
And when I’m feeling a bit down they make me smile. 

I used up a few pieces from a couple of different collections. Starting with my base sheet which is from the Pink Paislee cedar lane collection. The circles are from another sheet in that collection, and I punched them out. 

The frames under my photos are Simple Stories chipboard frames. 
I also layered a few Pink Paislee washi strips up under my circle layers. 

I finished it all off with a Heidi Swapp glitter bow to add a bit of ‘fun’ to the layout. 
I really hope you join in the fun this month with one of our challenges. Maybe this sketch is on the Saturday to do list 😉 
Catch u all soon.

Love - with Emma.

Happy Sunday to you all 😊
I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend. 
Today on the SC blog I’m sharing a simple layout 
Consisting of many pieces from the My Minds Eye ‘On Trend 2’ range. 

For my  base sheet I used a sheet from the Pinkpaislee cedar lane collection and then proceeded to tear a couple of strips off  of 2 papers in the MME range. 
I then added a stencil and texture crackle paste, along with distress oxides for colour. I then stamped to complete my layered look on my paper.

With my paper layers under my photo I use mostly the On trend 2 journal cards. So perfect for layering. 

I fussy cut a couple of images to add, Eg the flowers, cactus and flamingo. 
This range is so pretty with its gold elements and soft colours but then I love the eclectic feel with the cactus and flamingos. 

I finished it all off with many stickers from the collection and my layout was finished. 
My layout is simple but the paper is exquisite. 
I hope you all get to have a little Scrap time today. 
I’ll catch you all soon.
Em. Xx

Create your own dreams for ScrappingClearly

Hey there scrappy peeps, 
I'm up on the SC blog today, sharing my tongue in cheek take of the sketch this month 😜 
Now I love love love sketches but this one truly had me scratching my head! 

It's awesome, just I didn't know what to do with it?! 

So here is what I 'took' from it......
I did place my photo in the bottom right hand side......

But I turned it 😉 
I did 'journal' with some of the cool 7dots stickers, and I tried to keep the shape of the sketch, didn't I?? 
The great thing about a sketch is you can interprete
what or how you see it 😉

I played with some pretty cool products on this page. 
I started by using some of the Simple Stories Carpe Diem papers, torn and layered behind my photo as well as my base sheet. 
Added some colour blast texture paste, some stamping and mists to create my layers. 

I altered these Heidi Swapp canvas tags with Tim Holtz distress oxides. And then added them into my layers. 
Plenty of SS Carpe Diem chipboard embellishments on the page. 

They all just tie in so well together. 

So that is my loose interpretation of this months sketch. 

I can't wait to see how you all play with it. 

Catch you soon.

Hi there, 
Today I'm sharing my take on this months moodboard. 
It's such a cheerful board. Lots of pretty colours and flowers. 

I chose to use 'shades' of this moodboard. 
Focus on the yellow, green & black. 
I used the Simple Stories-Carpe Diem paper range. 
I used the matching chipboard frames, which I cut up to create layers. 

I also used a little of  the MME - On Trend 2 journal cards. 
It worked perfectly with the colours. 

I used a few of the Carpe Diem chipboard stickers. 


How gorgeous is the gold in these papers!!
And to really bling it up I used a Heidi Swapp acetate word for my title and enamel shapes to tie it all together. 

Thanks for checking my page out.
I hope you can join in the fun here at ScrappingClearly

 I also made a 
process video for this layout, if you want to check it out here.....
