This week over at Stamping Royalty this week, we are having a Valentines Day Challenge. You really need to pop on over to the site. There are massive changes and a new Godess. Here is the card I made for the Challenge. A super easy, quick card, full of love.

Here we go! I have nearly reached and surpassed my total blogging amount from 2016. Well, I must confess, it was a good break, but not intentional. Here is my layouts (notice the S) for the start of this extremely busy month. I plan to have a lot of things accomplished this year, but you will have to wait until I finish more pages to see what they are.
Well. I have been missing for so long, I really don't know where to begin.
I guess, I will begin with a cover page for 2017 Project Life. Yes, I have decided to go digital this year. I just do not have the time or dedication to go physical. So here it is. My very first page layout for 2017.

So finally after a few months, I have decided to go plain and simple with my Project Life 2016. I found the process was not overly enjoyable, and the pages were taking far too long to complete. Here is my week 1 and Week 2. Hopefully things will go a little bit smoother now.
Week 1 for January 2016
Week 2 for January 2016
Over at Stampin Royalty this week, we have a Butterfly challenge for you to play along with. It's very simple. Using whichever products you like, create a project using a butterfly, then enter you card on the Stamping Royalty site. Very simple. Go ahead and try.

Here is my first ever Month in Review page. I have used the template from Two Tiny Turtles and the Digital kit from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients all from Sweet Shoppe Designs. (Including a few little bits from various kits I already had). I love the ease of Digital Project Life. I think I changed my mind at least 10 times on this one.
This week over at stamping royalty we have a picture inspiration for you to play with. I love the mint and gold together. I created another Project Life page using the colours in the inspiring picture below. Go check out the site and see what the others have come up with using the same picture.

Well, I must confess, it has been a while since I have blogged. Mainly due to password and log in issues, but they seem to have sorted themselves out now. No excuses...
Here is the project I made for Stamping Royalty this week. The subject was entitled Masculine Cards.
Have I told you that I am super hooked on Kathy Orta albums at the moment. I'm sure I have. So, I have made this little album (one of many) and used it to highlight my son's photos for 2015.
I have used (mostly) Stamping Up papers for the cover and inserts.
The inserts pull out from each page giving a load of room for pictures.
Here is the middle of the card insert, with room for 6x4 photo, journaling and a pull out tag inserted into the pocket.
Here is the outside of the insert with another photo and a Project life Journaling card.
The album cover is not quite finished yet, but when it is, I will upload all the photos.

Yes, you heard me right! I have been on a little crazy spell at the moment. I found this book last week. if you like creating albums, it's an amazing book.
This is the front cover of the book I brought. It's written by the Queen of Interactive Scrapbooks, Kathy Orta, hopefully this link will work for you.
I will try and blog a few pages to show you what I have been making.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The weather is HOT! The shorts are on and jumpers packed away. Getting close now.

I just love this image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. She is a digital from the Polka Dot series.
I made this card with these two challenges in mind. The first one being a colour challenge from Color Throwdown and the second one being the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches

This week over at Stampin Royalty we have a picture to inspire you creativity. I did, however struggle with this one, so I went with the colours. It looked a little plain, so I added a star under the penguin.

Over at Stampin Royalty this week, we have a picture to inspire you. Here is my take on what inspired me. Well, I stuck with the colours and the vase of flowers on the night stand. Head on over to stamping royalty and see what the very talented design team have come up with.

This week at Stampin Royalty, the theme was anything but a card. I purchased this kit from Stampin Up a little while ago, so I thought it would be perfect for this challenge. Seriously, I had a ball doing this project. It was so much fun to build all the elements and stick them onto the wire frame. Oh, I must confess. I found the Pom Poms extremely not my thing, so I changed to the punched flowers.
Head on over to Stampin Royalty to see what the other girls have made.

Yeah me! I have finally completed week 1 of Project Life for 2015.
Hopefully there will be more to come. This week was all about getting my craft room up and running in a practical and stream lined way. I decided (as I do) to move the entire room into our spare room. Lots of work to move everything and set it all up again. I'm wondering how long it will last.

So, another year of Project Life, and already I have changed my title page. When will this end. lol
I wasn't entirely happy with the first attempt, so here is my second try. I like this one so much more now. Nothing like a bit of colour to make the world go around.
Here is the kit I used for this page:

I made this card, an Easel, card, for the tiddlywinks challenge. It has been so long since I have made ANY shaped card, it was great to get one finished. I have used the image from Tiddlyinks called Annabelle Puppy Love. The papers are Red, Stampin Up and Pattern Paper from a pad from Echo Park called Fine and Dandy. I'm off now, to post this on Tiddlyinks blog.

I was playing with this stamp set (Butterfly Basics) the other day, and was having trouble trying to get the layout right. Well, that was until I found the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches. Total life saver, as far as I am concerned. Everything just fell into place. Thank you.

Over at Stampin Royalty this week, there is a bit of a special challenge. It's kind of like a second chance at fixing a card you were not all that happy with at the time. Well, I can certainly say, that this card of mine below, is one that I am not too happy with. So here is is....
Firstly, here is the original challenge.
Here is the card I created for the challenge. (It was good at the time) lol. I think the more I look at it, the worse it is becoming....
And, here is my new card. I had to change the colours slightly, as Not quite Navy has been discontinued. So, I used Night of Navy instead. I just love this stamp set with the cats. They are so cute.
So, if you have a card you would like to re do. Pop over to Stampin Royalty and let us all have a look. There are some great cards over there. Full of inspiration.
