Project Life 2019 :: Week 5


I tried something a bit different with my photos this week. i had a panorama photo of a sunrise and wanted to use the whole thing, so I turned the first side into my title card.

The *INSIDE AND OUT kit from Feed Your Craft and Brandi Kincaid worked perfectly with the colours in my photos this week and I just love all the die cut pieces from the cut-apart sheet combined with the stamps from the kit.

Hello Baby Boy :: Pink Paislee Design Team

I'm over on the Pink Paislee blog today sharing my very first layout for the 2019 Design Team, featuring Jack, of course, and the totally appropriate Little Adventurer line! I hope you'll head over and check it out!



Traveler's Notebook :: Just Stay Here


It's release day over at Feed Your Craft and I'm using the new INSIDE AND OUT kit from Brandi Kincaid to document a random photo that never quite made it into my Project Life album.

I really love the look of splatters and mist on a page, but I hate the messiness. A simple solution is just to draw your own! I grabbed a few gel pens and went to town scattering dots and spots all over the place.

Pocket Page Notebook :: 8000 Subscribers


I'm not even sure how I got to this milestone so quickly. It literally seems like just yesterday I was celebrating 7000! I asked on the Community Tab of my channel how I should celebrate this and, overwhelmingly, it was decided that I should have freebie printable for everyone! So that's what I did!


It was fun using my printable on this page, I enjoy being able to incorporate 3x4 cards into my Pocket Page Notebooks. One of my favourite uses for them actually!

Project Life 2019 :: Week 4


One again, I used the "Love Stories" Life Crafted kit from Citrus Twist this week but I decided to use stamping as my main form of embellishment. I LOVE the Traveler's Notebook stamp set from this month so I used that and the Spencer alphas to embellish my spread and create a title card.

One Little Word 2019 :: February


I saw so many people struggle with this last year but I always love the vision board prompt! 


I love the messiness, the physical act of making it, and I love how I'm always surprised by the outcome. And I still love making these mini collages in my Pocket Page Notebook!

Traveler's Notebook :: Any Excuse for a Treat


So, this one didn't go quite as planned! Guess how many attempts it took me to get a title on this page? Too many is the answer! I was SO stuck on using a particular set of alphas because they came out of the same kit I happened to be using, that I wasted so much time not using a set that would work even better!

Although, they alphas are THE WORST! Which actually worked to my advantage because I was able to manipulate them and move them around so many times. But on the sheets, they either don't stick at all and float around the packet, or they are so stuck down that they rip when you try to take them off. Not impressed really. It's lucky they are the perfect blue or I probably would have binned them out of frustration by now!

Project Life 2019 :: Week 3


I used the "Love Stories" Life Crafted kit from Citrus Twist for my Week 3 and it was perfect for all the different types of love I had on this spread. Obviously, there is the lovely Jack and the overwhelming love I have for the new addition to our family, but also a photo about self-care and the love I've had to give to myself in hard times, little Lily is there and my fierce love for her when she isn't well and a photo of me driving home – to the place and people I love the most.

I also tried a new technique for changing the colour of the puffy sticker alphas. As much as I LOVE the gold, they just didn't match my spread. So I grabbed my Stazon ink and it all worked out better, if not slightly messier, than I hoped!

Pocket Page Notebook :: First Cup


The last page in my Coffee Traveler's Notebook is done and is all about my first cup of coffee of 2019! Which was terrible by the way. Thank goodness there have been so many more good ones since then.

I used minimal supplies for this page. In fact, apart from my photo, I only used one alpha stamp, number stickers, a paper pad and a roll of washi tape. Now that is pretty simple, especially for me, there isn't a sequin in sight!

Project Life :: Week 2


I wanted to prove how easily you can put together a page with minimal supplies ... but then I couldn't help but add a little sparkle 😂

I really only used two stamps sets, two ink colours, and two journalling cards, with an additional roll of washi, sheet of labels and some sequins (but you could totally leave those off if you're not me!)

One Little Word 2019 :: January


It took me a little while (almost the whole month 😂) but I've finally started my OLW journey for 2019. I'm glad I took the time I needed so I could really think about things and get the words down rather than rushing through it.

I've prepped two Pocket Page Notebooks this year so I won't have any of the space issues I encountered towards the end of 2018. And yes, I've covered them in sparkly pink glitter. How could I not?!

Traveler's Notebook :: Book Review


I powered through my first book of 2019 so I've created the first page in my 2019 Reading TN with the GOOD READ stamp set from Kellie Stamps!

Even with all that repeat stamping, the left had side still looked a little "plain" so I added a little stamped circle embellishment and it wouldn't be a page of mine without a few sparkles so I added some pink sequins too!

Project Life :: Week 1 + FREEBIE CARDS


I ended up with a sort of mini kit of supplies when I grabbed some more page protectors for 2019 so I  pulled out my watercolours and created a set of matching Project Life cards that we can all use!



Download your own set of printable cards here and if you use them, don't forget to tag me because I really want to see what you make!

Pocket Page Notebook :: Banoffee Latte


Not surprisingly, I've almost filled my Coffee TN! This simple page is about the strangest coffee I had in 2018, and it wasn't quite as weird as it sounds!

I'm still obsessed with the Spencer alpha from Citrus Twist, and the Caffeinated Stamp from Feed Your Craft gets another look in too!

Project Life :: Week 52



I used the HABIT FORMING kit from Feed Your Craft and Brandi Kincaid for Week 52. It is perfect for both endings and beginnings. So you know what that means, 2018 is in the books! Bring on 2019!
