Christmas

ESAD 2017 Holiday catalogue blog hop

You’ve arrived from Megan Lenske.

Christmas supplies have always been my weakness. I normally buy so many papers and embellishments and stamps. Do you just go all crazy for Christmas supplies too?

There was one set that completely captivated me in the holiday catalogue. With a ballet loving 10 year old how could I pass up Suagrplum Dreams? I mean it’s not just a Christmas set. Check out Jessica’s 10th birthday card.

A very simple card using only 2 colours, Powder Pink and Berry Burst. I love the tone on tone stamping for the background and the cardstock strip across the card. The strip is simply using the flower and leaves from Number of Years. The only thing that was tricky with this card was fussy cutting the ballerina. I think totally worth it for the effect it has.

Every year I create a December Daily type Christmas album and I love to look over how our Christmases have changed over the years so I am very pleased with the inclusion of the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More this year. It looks great and so easy to use. Be sure to check back in October after my retreat to see how I’ve started the album ready for assembly in December.

Project Life Christmas

Are you  preparing for Christmas? Have you created your layouts for last year? If you’re like me you’re running a bit behind schedule. Project Life offers the perfect solution. It is a quick and easy way to get your memories into an album.

My pages are all really simple because I have 5 children to create pages for as well as doing our family album. I also love to scrapbook traditionally and that is my main focus. I want to dedicate as much time as possible to traditional scrapbooking. If I can do Project Life with 5 kids you can give it a go too. Imagine the memories you’ll be able to leave your children.

Last year we had my daughter’s kindy graduation. As the journaling says, when did that begin to happen? I know it is the next phase of education but seriously.

Seasonal Snapshot Project Life kit by Stampin’ Up!

This video shows the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life kit. It is amazing. Have a look at the video. I’ll show you a few pages I’ve created soon.

I was really impressed with this kit. The catalogue doesn’t do it justice.

Until next time, happy crafting.
