Ready for winter (sizzix)

10 December 2014

This week on the sizzix blog I I showcased a layout I created. My youngest was thrilled when we got our first snow (it wasn't a lot but enough for hours of joy). Just before he went out to play I snapped a picture of him in his warm coat. 
Here is a sneak peek of the layout. You can see the entire layout on the sizzix blog here: Ready for winter

Life .... Love

7 December 2014

Just popping by to show a layout I made last week. I took up the challenge to use the 8.5*11 size and I am enjoying it even though I still find it a lot harder. I love white space and as the size is smaller there is less space. I am going to keep on working with this size for a few more weeks. I can always switch back later if I want to.
I am still working with my Studio Calico kits. I only get the main kit but as I am scrapbooking a lot less the supplies are piling up.
I went for a soft colour scheme and added a bit of machine stitching.


Thanks for stopping by.

HELLO

3 December 2014

It is December and we had our first snow today. Not a lot but the two youngest were ecstatic. December is also one of the busiest months. 3 birthdays, exams at my school which means LOTS of correcting to do, planning bday parties, Christmas, music auditions, choir performance, .... I love this time of year but it is hectic and that makes it a little less fun. I am trying to enjoy every minute and takes things as they come.
I have a layout to show. The photo was taken on our summer vacation in the south of France. Oh what a wonderful time we had. As you can see I am sticking to the 8,5*11 and I am using up my Studio Calico kits. 

I also have a couple of projects on the sizzix blog. Here are some sneak peeks. Just click on the image to see the full post.

So excited to see snow: 

 

Il neige .... il neige ....  


  All ready to play in the snow.



Video Sunday

23 November 2014

What? Really? Yes, I found time to make a video. I didn't do a full voice over so if you have any questions about anything just leave them in the comment section. 

I decided I needed a change and a challenge in my little scrapbooking world. I sometimes feel the need to do something different, to step out of my comfort zone. I opted for a new size and made a 8.5" by 11" layout (actually A4 size but it is nearly 8.5"by11"). I think it'll be easier to store this size and I'll be able to use my printer for journalling (might be getting a typewriter soon). 

I also have a giveaway but to know more about it you'll have to watch the video. I really hope you'll play along.




 Just noticed there is a spelling mistake in the journalling. Will have to correct that with a pen. It doesn't really bother me. Mistakes happen.

Today ...

19 November 2014

I have another layout to show. This one was made a couple of weeks ago and I forgot to post it. I used up some of my Studio Calico kits that I had laying around.


I really hope to find time to make a video on Friday so this weekend it should be ready.


Lovely Autumn

18 November 2014

My life has been extremely busy since school has started. I am working more for school as I have new courses and due to that I have less time for scrapbooking. I would love to create more but when I have time I am finding myself trying to relax. I think that maybe I need this at this moment of time. Time just to relax and reflect on life. I am also be drawn more towards spirituality and I also want to watch my children. Watch them grow, watch them be happy and sad, just see them grow up and find their way in life. 

When I do have the urge to scrapbook and I sit down for 30 minutes not more and just have fun.

I created this layout a couple of days ago. Simple and just FUN to create. (supplies: Studio Calico kit)


I also have a blog post up on the sizzix blog with some Christmas tags. Would love it if you'd stop by. Just click on the image.
