UKScrappers Spring Blog Hop


Welcome to the UKS Spring BlogHop! 

Hopefully, you've come to me from Scrappyjen, but if you've dropped in on me directly and want to follow the hop, or if you lose your way, you can see the full list with all the links here: UKScrappers Blog Hop Thread.

I've gone way out of my comfort zone for this, and have made my first ever process video, showing how I use standard scrapbooking supplies to create a Project Life spread. It's a little rough around the edges - you can hear my creaky floorboards and the traffic outside at one point - but as a first attempt I'm pretty pleased with it, and I hope you enjoy watching it :D

Here's the finished spread:


And here's the video:


And that's it! I hope you enjoyed our blog hop :D

All that remains is to hop on back to the UKScrappers Blog Hop Thread, and if you haven't already, make sure you check the UKS Blog Hop Thread for information on how to be entered into the prize draw! 

I'll leave you with a few close ups of my Project Life spread:

Well done on the video. And your page looks great

Wizbit said...

I do love process videos, those papers are great and it's a lovely PL spread. I may try some of your tips on some divided page protectors which I have been putting into my honeymoon album.

Thanks for the video

So bright and graphic - love the colourful and happy nature of the project. What I've seen of your video is very well organised and I was trying not to be stash jealous! It's a great way of getting your scrapping done - good with luck with it! Ali (Alibri) xx

What a great first video! I love that you are using your own stash - and it was interesting to see a page put together from scratch. You've not quite converted me, but if I was doing PL, this would be the way I'd do it! TFS
