Wedding Album

I have been working on this album for what is coming up to maybe 10 months now. Eeek... total slacker. Maybe it hasn't been quite that long since I got the photos actually, but my friend and her hubby just celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary and I'm only a little over half way through the album. It's a surprise though. She knows something is in the words but not exactly what.

Here are the pages so far:

Masters Entries 2013

It seems I have forgotten to share last years Scrapbooking Memories masters entries on my blog. I was going through some layouts today to put them into albums (as it's long over due) and I found them still packaged from when they were returned.

I was lucky enough to have my OTP project published in the masters issue as an honourable mention, which is always a pretty awesome feeling. However I am pretty happy with my 3 layouts that didn't quite get there. Here they are:

Materials: AC Cardstock; Kaisercraft collectables; Tim Holtz distress ink; Dymo labeller; AC Thickers; Other - stencil

Materials: Kaisercraft paper, collectables, pearl flourish; kraft cardstock; Manor House creations flowers; Dymo labeller; AC Thickers; other - texture paste, washi tape.

Materials: Manor House Creations flowers; Scrapmatts chipboard; AC Thickers; Other - paint, onion bag, double sided tape centre.
It must be getting close to masters for 2014. I am undecided if I will apply this year. It's fun for a challenge I suppose, trying to think creatively with the criteria. I like a good challenge.

Kaisercraft Design Team 2014 Entry


I decided to apply for the 2014-15 design team, as it is no secret I have always loved Kaisercraft products. Here are a couple of projects I have created for the call:

This pair of cards uses supplies mostly from the Kaisercraft Snap mini paper pad and some Kaleidoscope collectables, along with Scrapmatts chipboard, D-lish scraps embellishments, and Tim Holtz distress ink.

This layout is a double created with a traditional scrapbooking page, combined with a pocket scrapbooking plastic sleeve. I actually didn't have a plastic sleeve design to suit the idea I had in mind so I sewed together two 6x12 sleeves and stitched up pockets as I wanted. Not perfect, but pretty easy to create your own design. The traditional style page is on the left and the pocket page on the right.

Created using Kaleidoscope papers and collectables, with Scrapmatts chipboard & a Piece of Cake Designs flair.

And a mini album. This one was a good effort. It took me about 2 hours from start to finish, so I am pretty impressed with that. I decided to make a mini album of mine and my husband's relationship as a gift for our upcoming anniversary. Love, engagement, marriage and baby. Our story so far!

Created using a Kaisercraft tag wood album and the mini pad and collectables from the Limelight collection. Other materials were Scrapmatts chipboard, lace, flowers, dymo labeller, AC Thickers.

Here are a couple of the pages up close:

Ok now Kaisercraft... pick me... pretty please ;)
Thanks for visiting!

Project Life Week 15



May Scrapmatts

This month I have a few different projects to share with you for Scrapmatts, as always. Last weekend we had international Scrapbooking Day so I managed to get a little creating done the night before mostly. And that even meant a double layout!

I seem to be scrapbooking less and doing a bit more card making lately, which is a good stash buster. A good habit (maybe) that I've gotten into over the past couple of years is putting all my paper scraps into a box so I can use them up for layouts and cards. I've been meaning to pull out the box and just do a mass card making session although with the amount of scraps in this box, I may need a whole month!
Do you have a similar process?

Also, for all the mothers that happen to be reading this post, I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day. I still haven't made mother's day cards so I will have to share them another day!

Project Life Week 14

Still about a month behind on layouts but I am aiming to catch up in the next week during my days off. At least the intention is to be productive, so lets hope it happens.

Here's week 14, which is during our holiday to Vietnam:
