Scrapping in 2019 #11

Over the last few weeks I've enjoyed putting our Summer into albums - some traditional 12x12 pages, a few Project Life pocket pages and a few hybrid pages combining the two options. This first one documents the afternoon and evening The Boy Child and I spent being tourists in London. The second spread documents Cachirulo … Continue reading Scrapping in 2019 #11

The Completed 6×8 Summer Travel Journal

As I've said previously, when making travel mini-books my goal is always on the stories, photos, and memorabilia. I don’t experiment with a lot of creative techniques, because I want to highlight the photographs and keep the album fairly simple and clean. Obviously the wedding commands the largest number of pages ... ... but there … Continue reading The Completed 6×8 Summer Travel Journal

The end I think The Boy Child's teacher might have been a little surprised to receive … Continue reading The Boy Child’s Completed Summer Journal

Most of us would recognise TGIF as an acronym for Thank God It’s Friday, but in Brené’s world it stands for Trusting, Grateful, Inspired and Fun. Trusting: that I can continue to schedule blog posts that are … Continue reading TGIF With A Difference #8

The 6×8 Summer Travel Album

Summer travels are afoot and, as with our stay in Guernsey, I'm recording the details of our holiday in a pre-prepped 6x8 album full of pocket pages. I began by printing a selection of journaling cards (purchased from In A Creative Bubble) and mounting them on either blue or yellow cardstock. I varied the pocket … Continue reading The 6×8 Summer Travel Album

Month in Numbers | June 2019

Did June turn out to be joyful? I began the spread by adding some visual interest to my Project Life cards. I don't know why I haven't stitched on them before now. Let's take a look at the numbers: A fantastic 4 hours were spent at the Warner Bros Studio Tour (home of the Harry … Continue reading Month in Numbers | June 2019
