We're so excited to welcome back Vicki Parker to our 2023 design team. We can't wait to share her work with you. Before we jump into that, we want you to get to know Vicki a little better.
I am Vicki and I live in the Southwest of England with my hubby and furry child, Buster in a Victorian farmhouse that we are completely renovating. I have been scrapbooking for around 15 years and can't imagine not having this wonderful creative outlet in my life. I love colour and I enjoy the art of scrapbooking as much as the memory keeping. You'll often see a little mixed media on my layouts, and I really enjoy sharing the techniques I use via YouTube process videos.
3 Fun Facts:
I LOVE spreadsheets and use a pivot table whenever I can!
I used to be a digital scrapper, but once I found paper, I never looked back.
My house is like my scrapbooking - I love colour!
Hello everyone, it’s @vickiscraps here today to share my layout using the fabulous Flea Market collection. This is perfect for so many photos - you could scrap both vintage and modern photos, it’s so versatile. I love the colours and as always, the tag elements paper is shouting out to be cut apart and used.
I started by creating a shaker tag with two of the cut apart pieces. I cut a rectangle in each, backed them with acetate and using 3d foam, I filled the space with beads and sequins before adding a plain paper to the back to hold them in.
I added some foam hearts to each tag to add some extra dimension - they look so sparkly on my layout, and I love it! I also cut my photo to fit onto a tag to complete the theme.
I tore strips from the Oh, Yes Please and You’re My Fave papers and layered onto the page, then placed the tags horizontally across the page on top of the papers.
I added in some bits & pieces florals and then strung the tags together using some string, leaving it winding around for added texture.
My title is from the foam stickers which I also stuck on to a tag to complete the look.
I really hope this has given you some inspiration - I definitely recommend this collection if you are looking for something colourful and versatile - you won’t regret it.
Vicky, this is so cute! I really like the shaker tags. And what a beautiful color combo.
