January Project Life

Just wanted to share my latest post over at the My Paper Balloon blog as I finally just uploaded it. 

I have been away for a few days enjoying some time with a lovely friend, so today is scrap booking time and catch up on the blog time etc.

Here is a look at some of the spread I am sharing over there, the rest is on their blog.

Also have you seen the sneak of the Feb kit? I am so looking forward to playing with it, I love all things pink and throw in a heart or ten and I am happy :)

Freckled Fawn sneak peak swoons

I  came home today after a few days away at a friends house to find this little beauty on my door step, seriously in LOVE with this kit.

I plan on playing with it tomorrow and will share sneaks as I go, but for now I thought I would just share some sneaks from the blog.

Not sure what my fave part is yet, but I can say I love it all.

She has that certain je'ne sais quoi

Today I am sharing a layout I did for the challenge over on the Studio Calico message board, I asked the members to choose a layout from their inspiration boards and lift it.

I loved this layout April Foster made HERE, it was actually my favourite layout from the entire DT, Actually I loved it that much I had to buy all the inks that April used on it along with the awesome alpha stamp set. You all know I am not a stamper so this was very out my comfort zone.

The stamping took a while as every letter was different colours but I am pleased with the end result.

I did another layout and will be back with that soon.

Just came back to add that I have started another challenge over on the message board, this time to kill a kit , if you want to join us just head over HERE.

Project Life January

Today I just wanted to say a bit about my project life and share my first spread.

I had missed doing project life last year, I miss documenting the small things and looking back on them so I decided this year to do it again but on a smaller hassle free scale. I had decided to do it 6x8 size and just do it monthly or when I have something to document kind of thing.

I say the other day and printed the pictures I wanted to use so far this month and grabbed my January My Paper Balloon kit and got to it.

After the first page I realised that 6x8 is not going to work for me, yes, I love this size for documenting holidays, DD and so on but for PL it just is not going to work. Seriously I have used almost all the page protectors that came in the album so far, no joke. Yes I can include less and make the pictures smaller but that is not my style. I have an 8 year old that I want to be able to look back on these albums and love looking at the 947479484 pictures in there.

I have now pre-ordered a 9x12 album from Studio Calico in the wood grain and when it arrives I will just transfer what I have done so far into that album. Sorted.

Here is the title page for my album which will also fit in the new sized album.

I will share more of what I have done soon :)

Design Team news

So just before Christmas I was sent an email from the lovely owner over at My Paper Balloon asking if I would like to be on her design Team, of course I was interested, as I loved working with her kit back when I was a guest in August.

Remember I did these pages for my US trip? I loved the kit so so much.

Now I sat yesterday and have done a few spreads for my January PL using the main January kit and add on. I also snagged a couple of the past kits too that I had loved so had lots of fun.

I will be back to share things once I get pictures taken etc, and can not wait for you all to see.
