In starting this blog, my aim is to have a place to share my scrapbooking, card making, paintings and photos with friends and rellies. Hopefully it will inspire me to produce more....LOL. Welcome! Sue xxx
I thought this week would come together a little faster but I decided to embellish more than last week.....so it took longer! Never mind, I am retired now so I am supposed to have more time lol. Actually I do have more time but I am finding so many different ways to fill it all up!
This week I have used mostly Seafoam....I bought the digital kit. The right hand side has a 6x8 pocket on the top right side and rather than print some paper from the kit I went looking in my stash for some patterned paper that would go with the kit. I found this Amy Tan paper from the sketchbook collection that was perfect to directly journal on. I have also used my craft robo this time.
This is my second year doing Project Life and for the first time I am using the divided page protectors. I think I will really enjoy it! This first week has taken me most of the day to do, on and off but I think next week's will be faster to do.
Nearly finished!! I have one more day I want to do in this album....Saturday two of our neices and their families came over for our Christmas get together. It was a busy but wonderful day and I have lots of photos to scrap.
Meanwhile, here is Christmas Day. Love this photo of some table decorations.
I stitched a 6x6 protector to make 3 vertical pockets. Into the middle one I placed a diecut Christmas tree and glitter. Into both side pockets I inserted patterned paper and glitter then sewed along the top to seal it all in. This photo shows the back side of the insert against the first page for Christmas Day.
And here is the same insert on top of the second page. This photo shows the front of the insert.
In this album I have used some great Christmas tickets and chevron tags. They are available free from http://uprintables.blogspot.com.au/
She has heaps of wonderful printables......and all free!!!
Day 19 was a fairly quiet day....I put the tree up and made the Christmas pud.
Day 21 was Mum's birthday and I decorated the tree.
Day 23...just found I have missed a photo for 22nd so I will do that one after Christmas lol. We picked Debbie up on 23rd and brought her home and now I am starting to feel like Christmas at last. Deb loves December because her birthday is on 6th and then it is Christmas! She has autism and lives in a special hostel where she goes out 5 days a week and is very busy and happy. We couldn't keep her so occupied and happy at home. Her pleasure at Christmas makes it a very special time for us. I have used an 8.5x11 page plus a 6x6. I had problems taking a good photo of this page for some reason so I took them both out of the protectors....and it is all a little crooked!
