Kellie Stamps :: Adventure


As well as clear stamps, the Kellie Stamps February release also sees the return of the GOOD TIMES set but this time in digital form! I used a stamp from the set to create a cut file for my title before backing it in patterned paper and adding my photos and embellishments.

There really is no end to the projects you can create with digital files!


Traveler's Notebook Layout :: Today


I've had a revelation of sorts. Nothing earth-shattering mind you, but still, its made me happier. Ever since Studio Calico started including paper in their planner kits, I haven't really known what to do with it. I don't make a lot of inserts for my planners and my dashboards are already done. Most months it tends to get thrown away, if I'm honest.

But this month, I realised it was the perfect size for Traveler's Notebooks and a lightbulb went off. And I immediately had to sit down and get crafty. These purples are so good, I had to use them first to document this photo + write a little note of encouragement to myself.

Kellie Stamps :: Flashlight


The Kellie Stamps February release is today and includes two of my all-time favourite alpha sets! I used the TOP SHOP alpha to stamp out some song lyrics as a background on this page. It took a good while but I'm so pleased with the end result. Also, black and white all over for the win!


Project Life :: Week 4


I'm still amazed how well the colours worked out in this week's spread, since I didn't stick to my normal 2-colour scheme. In fact, I was getting down to the left-overs in my February Citrus Twist Kits Pocket Life kit so it was all very bits and piece-y. But I think because all the colours are sort of muted, it ties them together and almost like a bit vintage.

I just love the florals in the ephemera pack too. There is no bad photo that a beautiful floral can't rescue!

Kellie Stamps :: February Sneaks

Get ready, the February Kellie Stamps release is coming soon! If you love alpha stamps as much as I do, you're going be so pleased!

Believe in your selfie...


I'm over on the Citrus Twist Kits blog today sharing a 3-to-inspire challenge, I do hope you'll pop over and have a go!

Feed Your Craft :: More projects


I love, love, love that each kit from Feed Your Craft comes with bonus digital files. It means when you find a card you love, you can print it as many times as you want! Like I did with these hearts!



I created my own DIY digital title card by stamping one of the physical stamps, scanning it and recolouring it in photoshop to match the rest of my layout.


Traveler's Notebook Layout :: Panda Dog


Snapchat FINALLY recognised Lily as a person (about time) and let me do face swaps with her. I knew I had to do a page with these photos, too cute! But I also wanted to keep it super simple so I grabbed all my black and white washi tapes to decorate the left-hand side of the page.

TIP: don't pull your washi tapes tightly across the page, it will warp and curl the paper. Instead, try to keep them as loose as possible.

ANOTHER TIP: As well as making sure you have enough letter stickers to spell out your title, it might pay to also make sure there is enough room to place the letter stickers for your title. Or be prepared to use a back-up word!

Feed Your Craft :: First projects


The VIEW FROM HERE kit from Feed Your Craft and Brandi Kincaid is available today! I just loved this kit. In fact, I loved it SO much, the day it came I sat down and finished four projects in one evening! Here are the first two...


I love nothing more than a photo enlargement, unless its a photo enlargement with a quote that makes your heart smile.


And of course, the coordinating stamp set is amazing as well. I love making my own filler cards by repeat stamping a key phrase. This one was begging for some Instax photos!


Project Life :: Week 3


I just loved these floral cards from the February Citrus Twist Kits Pocket Life kit SO much and got really lucky that they tied my very stand-out orange photo in nicely!

So basically I just used all my favourite cards from the kit and very serendipitously, they worked perfectly with my hodge-podge of photos. Also, can you tell? I am loving little clusters of tiny phrase stickers and stamps instead of actual journalling!

Project Life :: Week 2


I'm using the new February Pocket Life kit from Citrus Twist Kits for this week's page. I just LOVE the colours this month so I had to use my favourite paper straight away! I'm also using this month's cut-file to add some texture to my title card. You can grab the file over on the Facebook fan page!

I was also over on the Citrus Twist Kit blog last week showing how I used this same cut-file on a traditional scrapbook page. Spoiler: it involves a LOT of stitching!

Feed Your Craft :: March sneaks


Prepare yourselves, the 15th is approaching and the Feed Your Craft VIEW FROM HERE kit is going to go fast!




Traveler's Notebook Layout :: Right Here


I was looking for something crafty to do without putting in a lot of time or effort so I played around with some stamps from Feed Your Craft and created some patterned papers. Then I though, why not use them to create a page in my Traveler's notebook! With a combination of paper, washi tape and stamps I've managed to create a completely flat page which is always a win in my books!

Pocket Page Notebook :: Without You

Last week I received a bit of happy mail when my order from The Stamp Spot arrived with my new Pocket Page Notebooks! These are fun Traveler's Notebook type inserts but every second page is a clear pocket page! So many possibilities...


... but I had to start with a shaker pocket filled with confetti. I'll admit, I was having a crappy day when I put this page together, so the journalling did get a little bit emotional, but the confetti pocket does a brilliant job of camouflaging it. You can grab yours here.


Here's introduction to Pocket Page Notebooks and a process of how this page came together...

Project Life :: Favourite supplies

Before I started with this year's album, I thought I'd give you a run-down of my favourite supplies.

They include: corner rounder | scissors | mini stapler | glue | pens | trimmer | tags | stitching supplies | instax | wood veneer | stamps | ink | washi tape | kits

These are by no means must-haves, just things I find myself using week after week.

Kellie Stamps :: Icecream


I used the Looks Like Summer digital stamps from Kellie Stamps to create the stitching template for this layout and then stitched directly onto my photo. I love the subtle texture it gives. The rest of the layout was kept simple, using circles as a theme and all the ice-cream and candy coloured stickers and dots I could find!


Project Life :: Week 1


Can't believe this is week 1! I kept it really simple and used both digital and clear stamps from the January Kellie Stamps release. I also used this freebie from Kellie's blog and I brush-scripted my title card before stitching on the number in a beautiful copper thread (which was AWEFUL to stitch with and in all likelihood I will never use again!).

I'm switching to square corners this year which has meant a serious dent in my stash so I'll need to work out a way to use all those beautiful corner-rounded cards in some way!
