Scrap Social #1: The First Few Pages

By August 11, 2014 Scrap Social

I had an old notebook lying around, a spare few moments and an idea. I took several Company magazine’s, some scissors and a glue stick, and started a little scrapbook. I think I mainly decided to do this as a source of inspiration, but also because I wanted something creative to do instead of reaching to the iPad/internet when I became remotely bored. I decided to call it ‘Scrap Social’.. aka, scrapping social media… whilst scrap booking. Dah-dah! #ScrapSocial ✌ (Cuttings etc are mostly from Company/Vogue etc etc…)

The first few pages are fairly random, but somehow I managed to make the first two look fairly Tumblr-esque which I am quite proud of! I think the fun in scrap-booking is how random it is allowed to be. Let your mind run free! I feel like the more random it looks the better… you can see with my third page it isn’t quite perfect as I attempted to make it look like some kind of story or whatever, in the end it ended up in a mess, but that’s the joy of this idea. You can see how your inspiration becomes even more artistic as the pages go on!

The fourth page is probably my most favourite. It’s super cute, yet the flowers and doodles add a spontaneous twist. I added some nail art pieces to this page to make it more three dimensional and more textured, but if you don’t have anything to use, try different papers… more about that towards the end!  I love how the next page really fits in with the whole feel of the previous one… it’s sort of geometric with a girly edge. I think the best way to make a scrapbook feel more individual is to do spontaneous scribbles. It makes it come to life! I also want to try sewing to make it look like the paper has been stitched… we shall see!

I believe colour and text is another way to really make your scrapbook more fun. I experimented with it in these four pages.. I think I prefer it when it’s already there for you… my doodle-y handwriting is not the best! I also tried felt tips and stickers. I’m all for the stickers, but I’m still deciding on felt tips… what do you think?

Okay I lied about that other page being my favourite. These ones are! As I got more into doing these pages, I feel like I have found my feet. Flower sketches, matching colours and biro pen doodles are my favourite techniques! I just love the way it looks. I even stuck a false flower on the last page… rebel! Even if I am saying it myself… this just looks so pretty!

So we come to the end of the first #ScrapSocial round up! I’ve listed a few tips and tricks below just in case you are interested! I’d love to see some of you lovely people getting involved. Let’s scrap social media (well, not completely), start getting creative and share how we get a long!

  • Don’t pay out on a fancy book! Most notebooks will do the job nicely… I actually love the effect it gives.
  • Use magazines with matte paper! I think it gives the best effect… but of course you can experiment with different textures.
  • Biros are your best friend! Pencils are cool, but pens are better.
  • Don’t stick to one theme, let your mind go wild.

Leave a comment letting me know if you have started a scrap book recently and if you will be getting involved with #ScrapSocial! Lots of Love… Tolly Dolly Posh xx

Style Blogger Awards 2014: Nominations

By April 3, 2014 Competitions, My Style

Hello my gorgeous munchkins (or handsome, for you boys out there), I hope you are well! Today marks a special day because *dun dun dunnn* the Company Magazine Style Blogger Awards 2014 – that’s a mouthful… or keyboard full?… – are open for business! 😀 I do kinda’ hate these posts, but of course any blogger in their right mind wants to let their readers know about special occasions, and this is one of them. Before you read… I am in no way saying you have to nominate me, I only wish for you to if you really feel I and my blog are worthy enough!

I still feel bamboozled about the moment when a tweet came in last year saying ‘You’re shortlisted! Congrats’… it was crazy. I think my heart skipped a beat. I still cannot thank you all enough for getting me from being nominated to the actual event… I want to hug every single one of you. Luckily I did get to hug some of you including my best pineapple, Anna and the lovely Alex (they both rock) last year, and I still have the photo-booth pictures to prove it. For some reason I am a lot more nervous for this year. Even though I don’t have to enter or even tweet saying I want to, I just have those extra few butterflies in my tummy. It would absolutely mean the world to me if you clicked the link above (or this one) and just nominated. Obviously you don’t have to, but it would make me smile a tad more 🙂 My awesome GIF tells you exactly how to do it… just in case 😉

style blogger awards 2014 missguided company magazinePlease do nominate other bloggers whilst you are at it, I don’t want you just doing it for me! I want to share the love, so if you’re not sure who to vote for the other categories, here’s a few links… I nominated these myself, FYI!

Thank you SO much once again! Even if I do not get shortlisted, I am so grateful if you go and take the time to nominate me. If you’re thinking of somebody who will be grateful for the award… I sure will be… hehe 😉

It would seriously make my day if you could nominate me. Also, if you could share it on Twitter (just RT this tweet), or Facebook (just Share this picture), it would be amazing! If I even reach the voting stage, I may even do a Give-Away to celebrate, but please don’t just vote for that! If you read my blog and enjoy it, then nominate how you please! I have also recently been nominated for the MADs Blog Awards, which is amazing, so if I were to get to the voting stage of this, it would be even more amazing!
