Traveler's Notebook Challenge

I'm over on the Citrus Twist blog today sharing a challenge and a fun technique for creating patterns with stamps. I hope you'll head over and check it out!


Project Life :: Week 43


When I first opened the Pocket Life kit from Citrus Twist this month, I sort of had the idea to use one of the stamps in the set to document what day each photo was from. And this week I tried doing that and LOVE the result!

This was probably the fastest I've ever put a week of Project Life together and I'm so pleased with how it turned out!



Here is the process for this week's simple spread...

Traveler's Notebook :: Fun (So many Tags!)


I created this tag based page purely because I had bought a new pack of tags from Rosies Studio and I wanted to use them right away! And they matched perfectly with my new Whimsical papers!

Project Life :: Week 42


As the end of the year steams quickly towards us, (anyone else shocked that we are in November now? November!) and as life seems to get busier and busier, I'm trying to keep my Project Life process as simple as possible so I can finish 2018 with a bang! (Or more likely the gentle thud of an album closing).

My week 42 process was definitely helped along by the lovely November Pocket Life kit from Citrus Twist, an assortment of die cuts and stickers keep things pretty and simple!

TN Mini Book :: Create & Play


When I have a busy photo like this, I would usually try to balance things up and leave the busy photo to itself. But this time, I decided to create a little hide and seek page and REALLY amp up the busyness! 

I used all the gorgeousness from the November Scrapbook kit from Citrus Twist to put together this page. All those gorgeous Whimsical goodies still have me drooling. Just perfect for documenting more about this little hobby of mine!

#31minutesfor31days :: All Done!


And that's a wrap! I finished up my #31minutesfor31days for this year and before I finish showing you through the second half of my album, I popped in a process for the last page in my min PPN! Rainbow, of course!



Here is the the process for my last page and a walk-through of the rest of my finished mini PPN...

Five Favourite Things :: Week 41


I didn't have a kit to work with this week so it is time for another Five Favourite Things challenge! I REALLY can't stop using that stamp set and given how busy things are around here, and how much coffee is being consumed, I can't see me putting it away any time soon!



If you want to join me in this FFT challenge, then create a project using the following 5 things (or any of your own choosing!) and don't forget to show me what you create using the hashtag #fivefavouritethingschallenge:

Pocket Page Notebook :: Latte Art Love


I've been in a bit of a funk lately so this morning I sat down and created a page just for me, with all my favourites. Coffee + sequins + repeat stamping = a happy Dee!


Alice had made me this gorgeous sequin mix for another project but it went perfectly with my photos of coffee! I used a gold-foiled page from the Willow Lane 6x8 pad and cut my title with my Silhouette. A few photos and a bit of journaling on the back and then some repeat stamping using my favourite Caffeinated stamp set from Feed Your Craft* and I called it done.

Project Life :: Week 40


I was going through my old kit drawer and found a treasure trove of past Citrus Twist kits that I forgot were even there. The first one I pulled out happened to be from April and was one of my favourites all year! The Food Happens stamp set was another amazing find. I think its time I moved these forgotten kits out into the daylight so I can finally use them!

One Little Word :: October


I am seriously running out of room in my Pocket Page Notebook but I still wanted to add a few cards for this months prompt rather than just a list on a page. So I decided to whip out the Fuse tool and see if I could fuse in some trimmed down page protector pockets. Conclusion, you can, but I didn't. I didn't fuse the pockets well enough and they did start to come apart. So I added some stitching for reinforcement.

Apart from that, I kept the rest simple by typing my quotes in Photoshop and adding some washi and repeat stamping exactly like Ali did. I didn't have any number stamps but luckily I have enough of a stamp collection that I managed to find 6 different stamps of the word "yes" so I added them instead!


Here is my process for my take on the September prompt...

Project Life :: Week 38


This was such a hard week and I didn't realise until I went to sit down and print my photos, that when life gets busy, the first thing I drop is taking photos! Luckily, I filled my page with enlargements, random colour schemes, gold washi and (shock) journalling instead!

Documenting December :: Plans and a HUGE haul!


Have you decided how you are going to document your December this year? Are you even planning on it?



I'm changing things up a little this year by moving from a 6x8 binder into a 6x8 Clear Acrylic mini album. I'll still be documenting non-daily though.



Last year, I pretty much used up all of my remaining Christmassy stash so I needed to replenish my supplies.



Check out this video if you want to hear me discuss my plans and see all the goodies I grabbed ...
