December (not quite) Daily :: More Pages


I finally put up my tree! So, of course, I would need a whole double page spread in my December (not quite) Daily album about it! I altered a card from the Decor8 mini kit, stamps my favourite stamp and added some typed journalling. Done. So simple.


I also wanted to make a little pocket I can slip in the few, but favourite, cards I get this year. Can't go past a candy cane stripe, plus those little wood veneer trees!


Here is the process video of how these few pages came together ...

Project Life :: Week 44


My photos were quite dark this week so I lightened things up with a lot of stitching, a lot of teal and a lot of alpha stamping. The plus side of dark photos is that white ink (I love Brilliance Moonlight White) shows up SO well. And this new alpha from Citrus Twist Kits is perfect for Project Life. Love.

Jot November Mood Board :: Cute


Did you see the November Mood Board over at Jot? I loved it SO much I had to give it a go. I've never done anything like this before so I just started by listed some of the elements in the mood board that I loved: The dark blue, the stitching, the watercolour, the arrows. And then I put them all in a layout!

And I am so stoked by the results! The stitching took me a little while to do but I love its sparkly effect. And it was such a nice change not to use white as a background! That blue paper from Crate Paper is delicious!


So much fun, I'll definitely be playing again!

Project Life :: Week 43


I stuck to cooler shades for this week, which seemed appropriate as, even though we are nearly in Summer here, we've had the worst weather – that photo there is actual snow! And luckily the new December Pocket Life kit from Citrus Twist Kits was full of delicious blues and greens! I just love that royal blue colour, it seems so rare in scrapbooking!

Traveler's Notebook :: Don't be frightened


I found a really simple way of colouring in these outline stamps (STAND TALL from Kellie Stamps) – gel pens! I keep this one simple with a black and white theme but I can't wait to try this technique out with some colour!


December (not quite) Daily :: The first pages


I know it's technically not December yet, but the beauty of doing this project the way I do it – that doesn't matter! I've already had a couple of Christmas-y thing happen so I take that as a sign that I can start putting pages together!



I LOVED those lights from Color Cast Designs so I knew I was going to make something special with those. I grabbed the digital version of both the Studio DIY and Decor8 mini kits which means I can print what I want, on what I want. And I think printing on vellum is going to feature heavily this year.


I also used some packaging that I saved for another page, although I REALLY struggled with this one. Luckily, my DECEMBER MEMORIES set from Feed Your Craft came to the rescue and tied the whole thing together nicely.

Kellie Stamps :: Rainbow is my Favourite


The Kellie Stamps release this month is actually a re-release of my two favourite alpha stamps, Stand Tall and Slim Jim. I used both of them to make this page celebrating another favourite of mine, rainbow!

Traveler's Notebook Layout :: This is me


I just love bold, graphic pages like this, and apart from a bit of faffing when placing my alphas for my title, it was so quick and easy to put together.

This page was inspired by the way these die-cuts were shown on the back of the pack, rainbow order?! Of course, I couldn't use them any other way.

And on a personal note, nothing makes me feel better the way a new, bold lipstick does! Selfie, anyone?

December (not quite Daily Album :: A little prep



I couldn't really just sit around and wait until December to start putting my album together, there were so many ideas floating round my brain that I had to make a start. The notes and sketches were starting to pile up on my desk so I started making – shaker pockets, transparent script pages, stamped cards. Now I have a good base for when I ACTUALLY start making pages!

Here is the process video of how all these pages and ideas came together ...

If you like the cut file I used for my transparent page, you can download it here. I'd love to see how you use it too, so let me know if you do!

Kellie Stamps :: Snapchat


It's release day over at Kellie Stamps and now is your chance to get your hands on the Slim Jim and Stand Tall alpha sets. I used Stand Tall to create the background for this page, it took a while, but the result was so worth it. I also used Slim Jim to emboss my title onto vellum, love the white on white on white look.

Project Life :: Week 45


I've skipped ahead a few weeks today to week 45, and I'm using the November Documenter Kit from Studio Calico. I wasn't that impressed with this kit, I love the cards but the embellishments? Not so great. So I used a bunch of my new washi tapes to pull this spread all together.


I actually had TOO many photos this week (shocker) so I decided to do a separate little insert for the photos of Lily and some of the cards that I thought would go perfectly with them.

Traveler's Notebook Layout :: Little Loves


This insert I made from the Scrap Small class from Big Picture Classes makes these layouts so quick. I used some transparency squares from a Documenter kit from Studio Calico to create a background, added my photo and some journalling and I was pretty much done!

Kellie Stamps :: November Sneaks


The November Kellie Stamps release is just around the corner and its gonna be awesome. I don't think it's any surprise that I LOVE alpha stamps and these two sets are my all-time favs. Prepare yourself for the return of SLIM JIM and STAND TALL. This will be their last return EVER.

Traveler's Notebook Layout :: Little things


So. This page was a little bit of a disaster. I didn't have any clear plan or idea when I started and I hoped it would just come together. But man, I really had to churn through this one. Eventually I think I managed to suitable save it from disaster but it just goes to show, some days it comes easy and some days you really have to work for it.

Traveler's Notebook Layout :: Spicy


Have you guys taken the Scrap Small class from Big Picture Classes? If not, I suggest you head on over and give it a go. I created this Traveler's Notebook for the class, and although I never followed all the lesson to completion, it means I now have this gorgeous insert all ready for layouts. And they are so quick!
