Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – March

There was only one contender for March and that was the return to West End theatre. On the surface the outing looked as before, but underneath, numerous changes. I reused a favourite grid design and simply copied the text from my blog post for the journaling. That book stack embellishment was a gift from Mary-Lou. … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – March

Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – February

It was only when I was sorting the layouts made at Crop in the Country into albums, that I realised I had created a page suitable for this month's One Little Word. Before slipping the page into an album, I added two more acrylic embellishments, and extra photos and journaling to the back of the … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – February

Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – January

For want of a better idea, I'm sticking with recording this year's word of redefine simply - one 12x12 scrapbook page each month. For January I chose a family gathering, which looked normal on the surface. Underneath that layer of normality, those of us over the age of 12 are fully vaccinated, all adults and … Continue reading Recording 2022’s One Little Word | Redefine – January

Scrapbooking in 2022 | The Goals

Last Summer's travelers notebook Given the ongoing pandemic I imagine that most of 2022 will be fairly similar to 2021, and that thought has helped to consolidate this year's scrapbooking goals. Storage for albums remains at a premium, so I'm continuing the theme of one layout for each month this year - 12 in 22. … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2022 | The Goals

Scrapping in 2021 | One Little Word’s Final Layout and a Just Because Festive One

During my mid-December cyber crop with The Oldest Friend, amid the chat and the mugs of tea, I made two layouts - both of which had been inspired by layouts seen in the current edition of Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine. For the final spread of 2021's One Little Word | Heart, I scraplifted the … Continue reading Scrapping in 2021 | One Little Word’s Final Layout and a Just Because Festive One

Annual Blog Review | 2021

The Best Kind of Early Christmas Present

Before heading home after our night in town, The Boy and I swung by St. Thomas' Hospital on Westminster Bridge Road to see if the Vaccination Centre was accepting teenage walk-ins. They were. The staff were utterly brilliant. Once they knew about The Boy's autism, they went above and beyond to ensure that he was … Continue reading The Best Kind of Early Christmas Present

Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – November

For November, there was only one option: the Festival of Remembrance. I used an old design by Shimelle and used the colours in the photo when deciding which patterned papers to use. I made a flip page in order to give a home to a few more photos, which I then mounted on a tracing … Continue reading Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – November

Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – September and October

For September's spread, I chose a reflective image of The Brainy One and me. 🙂 I modified a design I'd scraplifted earlier in the year. For October, I went with my favourite grid design to record The Brainy One's significant birthday. I've also realised that this is a great design for when you don't have … Continue reading Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – September and October
