Project Life Newbie

Well I promise this will be my last post for today! Honest! I have been considering for a LONG TIME now looking into Becky Higgins Project Life style of scrapping for just a few albums. I decided just after Christmas to take the plunge! Why now you ask? Well as many of my friends know I recently, December 2013, had the pleasure of attending yet another Bon Jovi concert here in Brisbane. I am a HUGE Bon Jovi fan from day one. Again my bestie from Tasmania, the beautiful Caz flew up so we could go together! This time she brought her wonderful hubby Pete up as well. So the awesome foursome (Ken, myself, Pete and Caz) had a couple of wonderful days together and enjoyed a fantastic Bon Jovi concert as well. Last time in Dec 2010 I ended up with a great scrapbook and lots of let over photos! So this time around I thought I might try a hybrid album... one where I do Project Life but also incorporate a few special photos that I will scrap in the traditional sense of the word. Bonus this time around the Program is 12x12 so it too will fit neatly into a scrapping protector and go into the back of my album once complete.

So bearing in mind I am a total newbie I thought I would be brave and share my first couple of pages. There is a cover page and a two page spread so far. The two page spread I think I will still play around with a little more... maybe add another little photo in the middle 2x4" slot. But I am pretty happy with them so far!


Thanks for stopping by.

Shadow Box Card

Hi

Got busy yesterday making a shadow box card for a special someone with a birthday coming up! I was googling (as you do) for some inspiration and came across this card on Pinterest. Yes fancy that... what a endless source of inspiration Pinterest can be!

This card was cased from one I found on Pinterest by the very talented Ruth Muzeen. Please head on over to her blog at Flower Sparkle and leave her some love! Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations Ruth and giving us all some great inspiration!

Continuing my love affair with the "Stippled Blossoms" stamp set, here is my case of Ruth's card:


Thanks everyone,

Let's Capture Our Memories Sketch Reveals

Hello Again

I am such as slack blogger... I can't believe I have missed all of my reveals for January! So sorry! Part of the reason is I have been having issues with my log in ID. I have had to go through the long process of re-establishing my identity and so on to get a new log in.... I got a little "frazzled" with all the hassles so kept putting it off... but it is done now so once again I will try and keep the updates a little more regular... try, try try!

In the meantime I need to share with you all my latest reveals for Let's Capture Our Memories. I am so loving doing card creations this term. I have two cards to share with you this morning. Both made with some very pretty Stampin' Up Stamps. In particular, can you tell, the Stippled Blossoms stamps! I so adore these two step stamps. They have almost endless possibilities!



Thanks for stopping by but don't forget to head over to the LCOM blog and leave some love for the other fantabulous ladies. If you are in need of some inspiration you will find plenty on the blog with weekly reveals, and some great competitions too!

Happy Scrappin

Hugs
