Stampin royalty changes.

So, if your a regular player of Stampin Royalty Challenges, you will notice that they have changed to Fortnightly instead of weekly. This is due to the fact that we are busy people, well, we like to pretend we are busy. Lol

The challenge, which again, I am late in posting, is all about Dies. Create a card or scrapbook page, or anything really, using your dies. Here is my card I made.

Week 1 - January

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.

Cover Page for 2017

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.

Project life 2016 - Revamp

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.

January Week 1

Here is week 1 for January finished. Yeah Me! I'm a bit behind already, but that okay, I will catch up, I hope. Here are the kits I have used for this layout.

January Month in Review 2016

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. 

Find your Happy Place

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.

Masculine Album

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.

Interactive Scrapbooks

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.
Paper Phenomenon.

I will try and blog a few pages to show you what I have been making.

Beginning to look a lot like Christmas

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

Perfect Memories

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

Picture Inspiration time

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.

Anything but a card

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.

Week 2 2015

Here is another week, hot off the press. We had large fires this week, broken down cars, yard clean ups and birthday parties. Another really busy week.

Week 1 2015

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.

Title Page make over 2015

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:

Butterfly Birthday

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.
