Pocket Page Notebook :: Precious


Well, this is easily the most special page I've ever put in my Pocket Page Notebook: I'm going to be an Aunty! I can't believe I finally get to make this page and I knew I'd find a use for that pink elephant that came in the July Citrus Twist Pocket Life ephemera pack!

Five Favourite Things :: Week 26 Project Life


I decided it was time for another Five Favourite Things challenge! I really wanted to try to create a page that looked like one cohesive layout rather than individual cards and, of course, I really wanted to sneak a rainbow in there if I could!


If you want to join me in this FFT challenge, then create a project using the following 5 things (and don't forget to show me what you create!):
  • patterned paper
  • alpha stickers
  • tiny word stickers
  • puffy hearts
  • journaling stamp (mine is IN REVIEW, available here* : http://bit.ly/2JvP5ZB)

Here is the process for this week's spread using my Five Favourite Things...

OLW :: July


I'm no mixed media expert, but I REALLY enjoyed getting messy with this months prompt. I wanted July to be about moving forward, no matter what speed that movement took so after I created some rainbow base pages (of course), I stamped out a note to self with a couple of alpha stamps from Kellie Stamps.

TN Sized Mini Album :: Peas in a Pod


As soon as I saw the alphas in the July Citrus Twist Scrapbook kit, I knew I wanted to create a TN page with a large title and this photo was perfect for it. But, some ideas are just too bulky for a regular Traveler's Notebook or even a Pocket Page Notebook. So I made myself a little TN-sized mini album for just such pages!

Project Life :: Week 25


How do you document those really hard weeks? I've got a few ways I deal with them but this week I used the amazing July stamps from Citrus Twist to do the talking for me.

    Pocket Page Notebook :: Obsessed with


    I've been obsessed with a few things lately. Donuts? Yes. But also rainbows, puffy stickers and the awesome new CONVERSATION STARTERS stamp from Citrus Twist. I used it to create this page (rainbow of course, because July is officially my month of rainbows) in my Pocket Page Notebook.

    Project Life :: Week 24


    What do you do when something is SO pretty that you just want to hoard it away forever? My only solution is to use it as quickly as possible! So this week I went a little crazy with the puffy heart stickers from the new Citrus Twist Pocket Life kit!

    Pocket Page Notebook :: Can not wait


    I'm just a little bit obsessed with the RAILWAY ALPHA from Kellie Stamps. So while I was impatiently waiting for my sister to arrive, I made another page in my Pocket Page Notebook with it!

    OLW :: May + June


    Somehow, I ended up a few months behind on my OLW album. And I REALLY didn't want to carry on my usual habit of just giving up now because it seemed too hard to catch up again. So I sat down and got organised and made these prompts work for me.


    I simplified what I needed to, skipped parts that were no longer relevant and am now fully caught back up and am ready to start again with July's prompt.

    I highly encourage you, no matter where you are in your album, catching up is totally doable. Don't be afraid to change whatever you need to to work for you and your album. Or start afresh this month if you need to. Just don't give up!


    Here is my process for finishing off my March pages and starting my April prompt...

    Project Life :: Week 23


    Even though I don't have terribly grand adventures everyday (or at all really!), I still love using themed stamp sets like GO.SEE.DO on my everyday pages and making them work for me!

    Traveler's Notebook :: Nothing Blooms All Year


    It's release day over at Kellie Stamps and I'm celebrating by using the RAILWAY ALPHA to add this little reminder to my quote insert.

    I love this alpha, its the perfect in-between size for TN pages. Although those Nuvo Drops, I'm not loving so much!

    Scrappy haul + a bonus process

    It's been a while since I grabbed a few scrappy bits, so that is my excuse for the crazy buying that went on this week! Also, I couldn't wait to use my new supplies so I had to dive right in!



    So here is my haul plus the bonus process video...

    Project Life :: Week 22


    I'm still using the GLASS HALF FULL kit* and it is still my favourite kit ever from Brandi and Feed Your Craft.

    The colours couldn't have been any more perfect for the photos in this week's spread and I love how bright and optimistic and colourful it is. The exact antidote to the doom and gloom of winter that seems to have settled in here.

    Pocket Page Notebook :: Food Coma


    Another winning combo for me: stamping, stitching and sequins! I'm actually enjoying going back to basics and using techniques I know and love. It feels comfortable and easy and fun, which is what crafting should feel like!

    I'm in love with this FOOD COMA set from Feed Your Craft. Perfect for me (and my family) since we all enjoy food so much!

    Project Life :: Week 21


    Finally, a week filled with colour and fun! It's about time. 

    To be fair, I was bit more intentional about taking photos this week, which meant I could actually CHOOSE the ones I wanted to document this week, rather than be forced to use all of them, and I like the difference it makes!

    I challenged myself to use the dreaded rub-ons in the Embellishment pack and I have to say, I quite like the result. Even though they are travel-themed, there were enough general ones that I could really make a statement on my spread.

    Pocket Page Notebook :: Recharge


    The UNPLUGGED stamp set from Citrus Twist was perfect for documenting a bit of my off-line time lately. And I love how the very spring-y colours from the Pocket Life kit, still translated into my very autumnal spread!

    This page was a joy to make, I stuck to colours and techniques I know well and love to use: pink, hearts, repeat stamping and hidden journalling. As nice as it is to try and push the envelope when creating, I think there is something comforting about sticking to what you know best as well. Especially when you're coming out of a bit of a funk.
