Sundays With Lorraine


Welcome back to Weekly Scrapper! I am honored to have the opportunity to share today’s amazing projects and I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Summer Themed Pocket Pages By Jamie Waters

With summer in full swing, that means lots of fun activities which also means lots of pictures. Pocket page albums are a great way to keep those memories alive. They’re quick, easy and oh-so-adorable. I love what Jamie did with her fun beach pics.


It’s time to get those photos off our phones and into our scrapbooks and with a little help from our creative friend Jamie it’s a piece of cake. Just because your pockets are a certain shape doesn’t mean you have to stay in the lines I love how Jamie has elements that poke out the top giving the layout a relaxed, fun feel to suit her carefree summer photos.

Animal Silhouette Cards by Riikka Kovasin

I have a soft spot for silhouettes, so when I came across these gorgeous cards I immediately knew I had to share the inspiration. Riikka used a Gelliplate to create her beautiful backgrounds but you can use any method you choose to create your own unique colored backgrounds. The silhouettes where from the Scrap FX lineclick here and I’ll escort you over so you can check out all the amazing treasures that they have to offer.

I’d like to take this opportunity to send out a virtual hug to Riikka for being such an amazing inspiration to her fellow paper crafters. For an entire list of materials used to create these little works of art, click here and I would be happy to take you over to Riikka’s blog Paperiliitin.

Capture The Moment by Elina

This post goes out to all you photo enthusiasts. I fell in love with the stamp set by Visible Image titled Capture The Moment – it includes gorgeous words that we can add to our scrapbook layouts, cards, and mixed media projects, and a superb camera, too! Elina used Bister powders. Bister works like watercolour powder (e.g. Brusho), but it is an organic product, made by boiling the soot of wood or walnut shells.

It’s time to break out your favorite watercoloring medium and the heat gun and create your own unique backgrounds. Someone special is waiting to receive one of your handmade treasures in the mail. Click here and I will be happy to take you over so you can spend some creative time with Elina – you’ll be glad you did!

Floral Vans Restyle | DIY

Boring white sneakers? Not for a crafty person like you! Imagine the possibilities – you can take any canvas shoe and customize it to fit any occasion.

Floral Vans Restyle | DIY

Think of all the money we are going to save! I recently purchased a pair of Vans with a Star Wars theme for my daughter for $100 but now I will be creating my own. You’re a few simple supplies away from designing your own unique sneakers, so have fun my crafty friends! Click here and I will take you over to Courtney’s blog Always Rooney so you can follow along as she shares how easily these adorable sneakers come together.


With a little help from our friend Amanda, we, too, can have this restaurant-quality chicken piccata at home and the best part is that it can be on the table in 30 minutes so it’s perfect for those hectic weeknight meals.


As promise,d dinner on the table in under an hour and then back into your scrapbook room where you belong! What’s not to love? Click here and I will escort you over to The Chunky Chef so you can print out the recipe. Enjoy!

That’s it for today; have a wonderful week and stay creative!
