Planner love

I finally broke down and ordered my first planner. She sure is a beauty. I've spent most of the weekend designing my own planner inserts and decorating the dividers to make it my own.






As well as being gorgeous, I have high hopes that it will help me stay a bit more organised by having everything in one place instead of the millions of notes and to-do lists I have floating around the place.

Project Life :: Week 43

This is it, less than 10 weeks to go. My album is getting pretty full and I'm already starting to dream up new plans for next year! I really must try to stay focused on the here and now though. Kept it simple this week with springy colours and loads of texture thanks to my letterpress and embossing folders.

Holiday Cards :: Week 2

I'm still following along with Kristina Werner's Holiday Card series. In fact I'm rather addicted to it now. Here are my versions of her cards from Week 2...

Project Life :: Week 42

Another week done and dusted. Still loving my letterpress and still really struggling with this months kits. Keep an eye out for another tutorial where I show you how I change the cards I don't love.

Project Life Tips :: Typing on journalling cards

I'm sure I'm not the only one who isn't enamored with their own handwriting. One of the other ways I get my stories down is by using a typewriter. Some journalling cards are a bit hard to put through a typewriter so I found the easiest way is to fix them to a sheet of regular paper, with either tape-runner on the back or a little washi tape at the top and bottom. I usually place my photo where I want it and make a light mark with a pencil for where I want my journalling to start.



Once I've finished typing I pull off the tape and erase the pencil make, attach my photo and its all done. This same technique works well for typing on stickers or labels as well.

Holiday Cards :: Week 1

I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that October is a little early to start the Christmas countdown but rather than leave all the joy and cheer until December, I decided to follow along with Kristina Werner's Holiday Card series. Here are my versions of her cards from Week 1...

Project Life :: Week 41

Can you see the theme this week? Its been hard to work with this month's kit because it is SOOOO fall/autumn themed and we are in the middle of spring. So I picked out the least-autumn cards and then challenged myself to use gold on every card! And I succeeded. I'm loving the Alex and Ben Alpha stamps and the gold transparency pad.

Project Life :: Week 40

Boy was I short on photos this week. I was also short on enthusiasm for getting Project Life done. So this week's spread has been sitting out on my desk for a few days. Luckily my enthusiasm returned and I knocked it out. I can't get enough of these rub-ons. There literally isn't a card that doesn't have one this week!

Project Life :: Week 39

I don't really have a lot to say this week. I do love that water-coloured title card though. And I can't get enough of that alpha. Although I've used up as much of them as I can, so I'll have to start making up words (that have no vowels) if I want to continue to use them.

Around here...


Heading to work early enough to see the sunrise, trying new things, waiting for Shane to get home, spending a lot of time in bed, seeing the first signs of spring. And I really need to get the lawn mowed!
