Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – March and April

In March I chose to record the blossom currently blooming in our part of West London. I cut the Spring title using my Big Shot - I cut each letter twice and then layered them to add definition. In April I went for my love of reading. This was a scraplift from a layout seen … Continue reading Recording 2021’s One Little Word | Heart – March and April

The 100 Day Project | Day 75

Roughly half-way down my 100 Day Project list of UFOs, at number five, were the words fill in the gaps in The Nephew's albums. The Nephew currently has two 12x12 albums, begun when I was new to scrapbooking ... Anyone else begin their scrapbooking with the simplicity of Creative Memories?

Covid-19 | The Journal, Part 14

Covid-19 | Life in Lockdown – One Year on

This time last year, I never imagined I'd be trying to marshall my thoughts into some sort of coherent post about how the last 365 days have been for me and my family. It is perhaps easiest if I divide my thoughts into two columns - positives and negatives ... Positives: Lockdowns work. They're hard … Continue reading Covid-19 | Life in Lockdown – One Year on

Scrapbooking in 2021 | Filling in More Gaps

The thing about making several pages using the same design is that they invariably end up in different albums, so nobody is any the wiser . 🙂 (And I am closer to having a full set of gap-free albums.) Having said that, these two are side-by-side in The Boy's album. But this one below now … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2021 | Filling in More Gaps
