Sports Carnival layout

How many 6×6 paper stacks do you own? A few? Possibly like me you have a bit of an addiction to buying them. I buy them because they are so good for scrapbooking pages but also because I think I’ll use them for card classes.  More often than not I don’t or if I do I’m stuck with bit a pieces. This layout uses those bits and pieces of a 6×6 paper stack.

One of my signature styles according to my husband is the pen border around my paper pieces. Well what can I say? I love doing it because it gives each piece a bit of definition.

Another favourite of mine is to create 3 embellishment clusters. I love that these co ordinating papers give me the ability to make cheap embellishment clusters.

It wouldn’t be a layout of mine without some journaling either and this time I’ve included a clise up of the story.

I loved making this layout.  It came together very easily because everything co-ordinates and I was able to stick to what I love and what feels right to me.

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.
