Hey Finley | Vicki Boutin

Hi and hello, I have a new Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Layout for you. I started this Page on the White Foundation Paper, because I wanted to add color and water. The quality of the paper allows me to do that – without any curling from the paper. It is the perfect paper for Mixed Media!


So, I grabbed the “Watermelon Burst” Acrylic Pop Color (Set 2) and watered it down, so that I can get a nice messy color area on my Paper. I added a lot of splatters, used one of the Watercolor Brushes for it. I also mixed a Distress Oxide (peacock feathers) to the acrylic color on the Paper. I really like how the colors look together.



Before I started to work on my page design I grabbed the “Blue Hawaiian” Color Pop Acrylic Paint (Set 3) and an old Gift card to get more color on the paper. No water this time, just the plain color.

I used some big Die Cut Pieces from the “All the Good Things Frames” Pack for my layering behind the Photo. I only used blue, green and black here. Really like how the colors are matching the Medias I already have on my Layout. I also added a lot of black stitches (used my sewing machine) to the color areas for more interest and another texture. I think that stitching is always a good idea or just some thread behind some Die Cuts… you could also use matching colors and it will totally change the look of the Layout. Or if you just want to add a tiny hint of color behind something, grab some thread, make a little tangled nest from it and tuck it between the papers/photos.


The Paint on the edges looked a bit empty so I decided to add some Die Cuts to it. For the upper corner I used a little label, stitched it down, added a stamp and a glitter heart on top. Done!


For the lower Corner I grabbed the Number one from the “All the Good Things Icons” Pack – remember my last Page? I used the Number two for my second born boy. And yes, I will work on another Layout with the Number three for my last born… just love the Idea!


I used some Phrase/Glitter Foam Thickers for my title but not only that. I also used the Alpha/B&W Chipboard Stickers for his Name and a Chipboard Die Cut word “hey” on top from the photo. Really love to mix and match all the different Fonts.

the little things!

hi everyone, i grabbed the current moodboard from the JOT blog and had some fun!
the last two months were very terrible and it took me some time to get back on my scrapping table, but i made it… it helped me to get through this…
this layout, not for the challenge, was the first one i scrapped… i cried when i was making it! but it was kinda good to get the page done!


but life goes on and…. yeah, you know what i mean, right?!
so, let´s talk about the moodboard challenge, i am always a big fan of the moodboards, and this one is no exception! all the gold…. *love


i just love how this turned out!! the touch of black here, LOVE!
there is no black on the moodboard but you know, i need black on a page, especially when the layout is that bright!


are you a fan of moodboards?!
i have a process video for this one, so please check out my youtube channel if you like to see it! CLICK

thanks for stopping by today


boy pages

hi and hello, i am a mom of 3 boys and i am married… even the pets are all male… so, that means i am allowed to scrap all the boys with all the cute scrapbooking things, including flowers, pinks and aaaaaaaaaaaall the pretty stuff! i have a new layout and it´s about my hubby, getting his new tattoo…
koiloveand i used a lot of flowers and pink! hearts and curly fonts, not very masculine, right?! but it´s working for me 😉 i don´t even ask one of the boys for their opinion… see, it´s working!

this page was inspired by the new moodboard at the JOT blog … i also made a video, but the light was not the best and it was changing very quickly, darker and darker within a few minutes – so i needed to stop! you can watch it here – CLICK


the next page i want to share is this one…. made with the january 2017 HipKitClub Kits.


a big flower and some cute butterflies… for a lil boy!
process video for this layout – HERE


this layout is not to girly for a 15yrs old teenager boy… love how this turned out

and that´s it for today…
thanks for stopping by – i wish you all a great weekend!





hi and hello, welcome back, i have a new layout for you… this one is a special one for my person! my personal hero…my everything!
i wanted to send it to the call for the new JOT magazine Issue but i missed the deadline… well, nevermind… next time!
so, here you go…


i had some fun painting the leaves, i am always painting, or i am trying to get some things on the paper, and these turned out great so i used them on this project!



really love the photo from my hubby…
i am not a friend of yellow, nope, not at all… but this time i picked yellow and i am so in love about how it turned out!


i also used some new things from ColorCastDesigns and other bit and pieces from my stash… BIG love!

and because i love to share my process with you – here is a video!

thanks for stopping by today, i wish you all a great weekend!



just a sneak… video

hallo ihr lieben, heute nur schnell ein sneak auf ein neues layout [das komplette layout gibt es morgen, ich brauche erst eine kamera, ihr versteht…?!] von mir und kleines video zur erstellung der federn… da gab es ein paar anfragen zu 🙂

hi there, just a sneak from a new layout [you´ll find the full layout tomorrow, i need a cam for taking good photos, kwim?!] and a short tutorial video from the feathers… i got some questions about them 🙂


das war´s für heute… bis morgen abend dann 😉

that´s all for now… talk to you soon!


ein blick…

über meine schulter, ja ich hab heute moren ein layout angefangen, dann wollte ich schritt für schritt fotos machen und dann musste ich mit entsetzen feststellen das meine kamera kaputt ist!! buuuuuuhuuuuu!! alles funktioniert, sie geht an, sie macht fotos… ABER auf der speicherkarte sind dann nur noch schwarze bilder. hab schon alles versucht, formatiert, andere karte, gereinigt… hilft alles nix… entweder der sensor kaputt oder die blende?! ich weiß es nicht! aber reparieren würde sich nicht lohnen, das teil ist 10 jahre alt! hat mir immer treue dienste geleistet… naja, zurück zum eigentlichen thema… dann kam mir die idee den rest einfach zu filmen… ich musste musik hinterlegen denn meine jungs haben mich sooooo zugelabert, das konnte ich keinen zumuten 😉

jetzt muss ich die bilder erstmal mit dem iphone machen, aber das finde ich nervig… naja, hilft ja nu nischt…

oh man, ich lieb den kerl SO! das foto liebe ich auch… und sowieso 😉

hi there everyone, today i finished my first ever video… yay! but for sure i make some mistakes, but you´ll know it´s a learning-by-doing-thing… next time i´ll check the „no voice“ thing and i´ve to find a better way for the light… and next time i´ll use another camera, that one is not as good as i thought… but i really like the result… sooo, there are more videos coming your way 😉
hallo ihr lieben, heute habe ich endlich mein erstes video fertig bekommen… yay! aber natürlich habe ich ein paar fehler gemacht, aber wie ihr alle wisst ist es ein lernen-beim-tuen-ding… nächstes mal werde ich vorher die „ohne ton“ funktion checken und ich muss mir was überlegen wegen dem licht… und ich muss beim nächsten mal die andere cam benutzen, denn diese hier ist nicht so gut wie gehofft habe. aber im großen und ganzen bin ich schon zufrieden und das war sicher nicht das letzte video 😉
