Love Butterbeer | Kirei Baldwin | Scrap 3 or more photos

Hi UK Scrap Addicts!

So this month's challenge was to scrap with three or more photos! I generally scrap with one or two photos but I do like to scrap with multiple photos particularly when they tell more of the story...

For this layout I used photos from our visit to the Warner Bros 'Harry Potter' Studio Tour in Leavesden with friends. Of course we had to have butterbeer and now they do it in ice-cream which was very delicious!

I layered up papers from the One Canoe Two 'Goldenrod' and 'Saturday Afternoon' collections to create a background for my photos.

I mounted all the photos and then attached them flat at the bottom and raised at the top with foam pads. To embellish I used lots of the matching ephemera and stickers along with some extra bits from my stash.

To finish off I added a title using some of the matching alphas, and journaling of course!

So, if you don't normally scrap multiple photos on a layout why not check out all of the inspiration from the rest of the Creative Team and give it a go! Don't forget to share your layouts over on the UK Scrap Addicts Facebook group.... I'll see you next month with another challenge!

Happy Scrapping!

New York Selfies | Jackie Ashton | Multi Photos

Hi crafters, Jackie here with my layout using multiple photos on a page.

This is such a great way to add extra photographs to help document an event.  It does have to be smaller size like I’ve used, but can be standard 2 No. or even 3 No. 6x4 size photographs on your page.

New York Selfies

For my layout I decided to use 5 No. 3x3 photographs of my recent holiday, and also wanted to do a scrap lift or similar from this layout (here), but I ended up changing it by moving the whole design to the opposite side of the page, but kept the simplicity of the design.

I started my adding some colour to my background paper.  Then adding a strip of patterned paper down one edge, and added a border punched detail down one edge.

I added 3D foam to a few of the photographs and mounted onto patterned papers, before placing them down the side of the layout.

I finished off by added embellishments and stamped details  between the photograph.

This layout came together really quickly and even though its meant to be a scrap lift,  it looks different from my previous one as I used it as a starting point for my design.

Don’t forget to share your layouts over on our Facebook page, we would love to see them.

Till next time

Happy Scrapping

Good Times | Sam Ball | Multi Photos

I’m not normally a scrapper who used more than one photo on a layout, so this months’ theme certainly took me out of my comfort zone.

I looked through my photos and came across some from a couple of years ago, when we were lucky enough to go on a Caribbean cruise. One of the island tours we did was to visit the location of a Pirates of the Caribbean film.

With memorabilia including a flag signed by all cast members, completely exposed to the elements and a dressing up box, complete with actual costumes, it was too good an opportunity to miss!

Normally the one behind the lens, once Harvey was donning a ‘jolly roger’ hat and pirates wig, the camera started quickly snapping, as I knew he wouldn’t stay in character for long!

The layout itself was made with some very old stash – the beady eyed amongst you might recognize it from around 2013? It was a collection that I loved, so much so that I bought vintage ephemera and playing cards to co-ordinate with it.

But as is so often the case, when we love something so much, we tend to ‘save’ it, only to ultimately forget about it!

As soon as I saw the cut file, I thought it would be cool backed in all this saved vintage ephemera, and perfect with the photos!

A watered down, distressed oxide ink created the base background colour, but I did feel it was looking too pinky, so I used the same colour through a script stencil and added modeling paste through a cross stencil to replicate the scull and crossbones, and add texture.

Are you a scrapbooker that only tends to use one photo? Why not play along, and share your layouts with us over on our Facebook page, or tag us on Instagram?

ROFL | Lisa-Jane Johnson | Multi photos

Hi everyone, it's Lisa-Jane from Pretty My Page here with my layout for this month's challenge of using lots of photos.

Yes the actual photos are blurry - but there's a story to tell!

I tend to get my photos printed in 6x4 and then chop them down where needed which is always a bit awkward if the subject fills the whole frame.  Thankfully I was in such a rush to capture my friend collapsing into giggles that I had no chance to take a decent photo and they worked a lot better chopped down.

I knew that the Simple Stories Emoji Love collection was perfect to document this story but the papers are quite busy so I backed all my photos in white and then black to give enough contrast against the colourful patterned paper.

I raised some of the photos onto foam pads and arranged them haphazardly across the page to create a border.  I added another strip of paper along the bottom of the layout with a contrasting torn border underneath for even more colour and chaos.

I sprinkled some of the chipboard pieces and die cut pieces around the page and finished off with a few enamel dots (of course).

Thanks for joining me and I hope to see some of your multiple photo layouts in the group, blurry photos or not

Chasing Rainbows | Karen Moss | Multi Photos

Hello, Karen here with my October layout featuring multi-photos. 

I have used several photos of my daughter's Isla pup which were taken with a rainbow in the background.

The background was made by inking a piece of smooth card with Ranger inks and I used some really pretty rainbow embroidery floss to stitch around a piece of white card.  The rainbow and clouds were cut from addhesive backed card which is perfect for backfilling. 

I finished my layout by backing the clouds with vellum.

You can see the full process video here.

Don't forget that you can go to our YouTube Channel to see more process videos or look at the lovely examples of multi photo layouts on our Facebook page.  You may even be inspired to make one yourself - if so please show us.

I'm Crafting | Sarah Costain | Multi Photos

Sarah here today with my Multi photo layout for this month.

I decided to create a grid layout with 4 small photos. I knew I wanted to layer lots of papers behind each one and wanted a nice gap between them so didn't print them very large.

To begin with I created my background with texture paste and ink spray in white to contrast with the black background.

Whilst this dried I added my layers of paper and some raffia ribbon to the back of each photo with layers of foam to add some height.

The photos were added to the dry background with a T ruler to help keep them straight and I added a title ephemera piece to the centre popped up on more foam.

I used some crafty stickers around the edge of my photos and some button stickers instead of sequins or enamel dots around my background.

Finally I added some golden yellow ink splashes to my background for a little more colour and my layout was done.
You can check out the process in the video link here.

Thanks for joining me and have a Happy Scrappy Day :)

Princesses in training I Essie Jane I UKScrapAddicts

Hi - Essie here with my layout for our multi-photo theme. I've used three 4x6 photos (which I've cut down slightly) in a vertical row which is my favourite layout for more than one photo.  
 I've used black cardstock as my background and added a title and embellishments to the right side of the page.
I've created a shaker pocket using a cut file and sheets of acetate which I filled with sequins and glitter for lots of sparkle. 
I also used a cut file for my title which I heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder for even more bling - after all a princess can't have too much sparkle. The papers and embellishments are from Shimelle's 'Head in the Clouds' and 'Sparkle city' collections. 

There is a process video of how I put this layout together on the UK Scrap Addicts YouTube channel here

I hope you are feeing inspired by our multi-photo layouts and we would love to see your pages in our Facebook group.

Multi-photos - Stephanie Louise - Good Times at Post Malone -

Hi All,

A very warm welcome to this months blog post and my layout of this months challenge - multiple photos...I have used Paige Taylor Evans Whimsical range for this layout and I hope you like the page...

I started with a dark green page of text and added some stencilled arrows using white texture paste.  I then added some white and pink splashes of acrylic and popped it to one side to dry.

When I was looking to find photos for this layout I couldn't find four photos that worked together that were the same way round, so I decided to use three portrait and one landscape and I stuck them all onto one piece of mustard yellow floral paper (using foam risers) from the whimsical collection.  I used a ruler to draw round the shape before cutting it out.

Once I had done that I stick the piece of paper with my photos on it onto the right hand side of my layout making sure I popped the tape in the centre of it so I could tuck the shapes and ephemera under.

Digging through the collection I came across a scrap of paper with hexagons on it, I fussy cut all of them out (even the half ones), distressed the edges and placed them under the photos, some were under the paper and the photos some just under the photos.  I also used foam riders on the outside edge of the hexagons to lift the layout a little.  I also added floral pieces where there were gaps in the hexagon border.

I added the title and the top left cluster before adding a sprinkling of turquoise and silver sequins to complete my layout.

Thanks for reading...see you next month...

Take care

Use a Filter... | Sheena Rowlands | Multi photo

Hi there UK Scrap Addicts, Sheena here again.

Our  challenge for you this month is to use multiple photos on your layout. I find I often get stuck in a rut of just using one photo on each page I create so I was well up for this challenge.

Use a Filter they said...

The idea for this layout started last month when I was looking through my phone for Selfies & I found all these crazy snapchat filter photos & thought they would be fun to use together!!

I used Crate Paper All Heart paper range in the main and created my own cut file as my title which I cut on the Silhouette and backed with a sheet of patterned paper.

I added torn patterned papers up each side of the cardstock as a base for my photos. I printed four photos a similar size as the polaroid frames then over laid them running down the sides.

I had a look through the rest of the All Heart collection & added stickers, chipboard, puffy phrases filling any gaps with little stars.

This finished page really makes me laugh!! 
I managed to include 4 photo and still have the feel of white space.
We could love you to join in with this our monthly challenge so pop over to our Facebook group and share your creations.

Till next time x

Stirling Views | Amy Kattenbelt | Multi Photos

Hi, Amy here today sharing with a layout that features multiple photos. I am a scrapbooker who more often than not uses just one photo on a layout. So this month was quite a challenge for me. I decided to go with 3 photos, placing them in a row with the larger one in the middle.

I created a mixed media background using distress oxides and a stencil, as well as some stamping. I used 3 colours to create 3 zones, one for each of my photos. 

I layered a few muted coloured patterned papers and doilies behind my photos, as well as used some thread for texture. On the larger central photo I also used some white leaf and branch die cuts.

I added a title using two types of Thickers and finished the layout with some ephemera, a butterfly sicker and some enamel dots.

Snapchat Selfies | Keighley Brennan | Multi Photos

Hey UKSA, Keighley here today sharing my layout for our theme this month. Scrapping in A4 I find it slightly more difficult to use multiple photos without filling the page, I like to keep things very minimal so I decided to go with 6 2x2 photos, keeping the photos small meant they wouldn’t fill my page leaving room for embellishments. 

I picked these photos of Darcie from Halloween 2018, with it being October I just had to use some Halloween photos and the Happy Haunting collection from Simple Stories. 

I started off by putting my photos into a grid, a grid is a fab way to include multiple photos onto a layout. The empty squares I embellished with die cuts, stickers and chipboard from the collection. I added my grid onto a pink cardstock background, I don’t use coloured cardstock backgrounds often and this is something I definitely need to do more. I finished with a title and some sequins. 

You can watch my layout process here on the UK Scrap Addicts You Tube Channel.

Please take a look at the UKSA Facebook group where there’s lots inspiration from the team aswell as the group members, as always the album is full of stunning scrappy loveliness.
Thank you for stopping by
