Inspired by...

Anyone else a little addicted to Glitter Girl?? Yup, me too. Although I have to admit, I don't tend to join in with the challenges, I find her videos intriguing and inspiring. So, a few weeks ago, I saw Layouts within Limits which got me thinking... I have a mountain of wedding photos I want to scrap. Would this work for me? Then Shimelle put up a post about 'batch' scrapping

So who am I to ignore writing on the wall blog!

I chose my photos and papers...

I promise, the yellow paper in the bottom left is the 'B' side of the blue swirly paper in the middle of the top photo. I love the yellow, but it wan't working for me. So rather than return to my stash, I flipped it over.

I worked with my scraps box, well, pile, and the embellishment stash I keep on my desk (I put new stuff in as I empty it and I made sure it was full before I started this)

 I chose two letter stickers, a Jillibean Soup and some thickers, a selection of paints and mists, 3 rolls of washi tape and my favourite embossing powder to go with my 'kit'.

And then, I scrapped! It was an intersting process. The pages come together quite quickly and I'm happy with them. Limiting my supplies meant I made things I had work rather than returning to my stash (I keep everything in RUB boxes) and I tried different things to make them 'work'.

As you may have guessed, this was our first dance 'Stripsearch' by Faith No More. It gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it. 

Next up: All in the details, just to record some of the little things... I'm planning some more of these pages I think

Again, I used scraps from my scrap pile and a little washi tape with some enamel dots.

And finally, one of my favourites: the vintage bus

I cannot tell you how much I love this photo... and the LO.

So there you have it: my bash at batch scrapbooking. Has anyone else tried this? How did you get on? I'd love to know.

P.S for those of you wondering, here's 'Stripsearch'
