ESAD blog hop sneak peek

 

Sneak Peek Blog Hop Header-001

Thanks for dropping in from Donna’s amazing blog.

Of course when it comes to a new catalogue I like nothing more than seeing all the new scrapbooking items. What is your favourite section of a new catalogue? Today I’m focussing on the Moments Like These Project Life kit, Moment Like These accessory kit and the Moments Like these stamp set. Trust me you’ll love these.

I appologise for the photos. I tried on numerous occasions to get photos of these layouts without the glare but I just couldn’t manage it. Hopefully you can read some of the journaling. That’s the most important thing to me. The journaling.

A bit of subtle tone on tone.

So here’s a tip for you. Don’t get caught up in whether or not you have enough photos to fill the entire spread. I work out of order when I scrapbook. If you don’t have enough photos to make an entire page just leave them blank until you get to the next month and you can slip those photos in. Leave them blank and if you don’t have photos to go in there just add some filler cards. Your album can be a work in progress. Don’t forget it’s about getting the memories recorded. It doesn’t have to be perfect or complete.

There is very little in the way of embellishments on these pages. I just added a few stamps and some of the stickers from the accessories kit. Simple and easy and allows you to get it done.

These following photos were taken on my iPhone. They are very bad quality but I just had to include them in my album as they were taken when I took the kids to visit my Dad and step-Mum. We don’t often see them so it was important for me to include these photos in our family album.

Don’t you just love that little wood veneer bow? It is from the accessories kit and is soooo cute.

Just some subtle detail by adding in a die cut from the butterfly dies.

I have a video of the whole kit if you’re interested just check out my YouTube channel. It really is a versatile kit.

Retirement list Blog Hop

ESAD Retirement List Header-001

A group of amazing Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and members of ESAD decided to showcase a heap of retiring product for you. Want to see what we love?

I created this album for my mother-in-law for her 70th birthday. It was so easy to do with the Project Life products we sell. Don’t worry. Project Life isn’t leaving our range we are just retiring all but one kit and bringing in a heap of new kits. That’s awesome right? Currently the Project Life kits are half price. That’s even better.

2015-02-05 PK's birthday album 001

A video showing the whole album will be uploaded to YouTube and posted here tomorrow so make sure you pop back and check it out.

So easy. Just add a few stamped images in co-ordinating colours and you’re done.

I had guests, including my children, write on a card to include in the album. It was so easy to put together because they, the guests, had done most of the hard work for me. All I had to do was trim the photos and pop them in. Embellishments were optional.

2015-02-05 PK's birthday album 014

I left a few blank journaling cards so my mother-in-law could include some of her own journaling of the day. One of my favourite stamps to be retiring is this camera stamp. I use it all the time in my scrapbooking and in my project life. It’s called Snapshot and I just love it.

2015-02-05 PK's birthday album 032

This stampset Sketched Birthday is another favourite of mine for both scrapbooking and card making. It just looks so good when you fussy cut the little balloons out.

2015-02-05 PK's birthday album 031

This butterfly is from Butterflies thinlits and is just the baking paper I used to make it easier to pop out the cardstock from the die. this is a beautiful die and I’m so glad it will be in the new catalogue.

Tomorrow I will be uploading my Youtube video of this album so make sure you check back in.
