A bit of sunshine and more publications

25 January 2016

Just popping in to wave hello and show some photos and a layout.
This layout was made for the ESPRIT SCRAPBOOKING magazine and I got to try some products from CUSTOM & CRAFT. I LOVED the bright yellow and black in this collection. 

And a couple of photos of the snow which has now melted ...

Have a wonderful week and see you soon. I'll have a video for you on Wednesday.

Hi there everyone.
I wanted to post a video today but unfortunately I haven't finished editing it. Lots of SNOW and a huge project to oversee have meant I didn't have as much time as I thought. I hope to have it up tomorrow. 
In the meanwhile I'll share a layout I made a week ago and a project from a publication from last year. 

This project was published in Esprit Scrapbooking. It was a very minimalist minibook using watercolours and a scraps.

As promised I'm back with a video. I love making them but finding the time is the hard part. I talked about my "zero waste" journey and part of that journey is also making a lot of homemade products (soap, cosmetics, bread, yoghurt, cheese (yes I make cheese: cream cheese, ricotta and vegan mozarella), snacks for the kids, ..... ). This means a lot of planning and preparation in advance. I'm starting to master most of the recipes which means I am becoming faster so I have a little time for some scrapbooking. I used it efficiently! 

This layout took me 30 minutes to make. Most of my layouts do. I plan in advance which helps a lot. I have a whole class called "30-minute layouts" on BPC.

If you want to check it out. Membership is $9.95 a month and you have access to LOTS of classes. There is a free trial so you can get an idea. More information here: http://www.bigpictureclasses.com/membership

 Here is the video. Enjoy and see you back next week. I'm planning a little inspiration challenge with a giveaway. Make sure to stop by later in the week.

All things new ....

9 January 2016

HELLO. It is a new year and that being said it is also time to get this blog on the roll again. The last part of 2015 wasn't as creative as I wanted it to be. I have learnt just to go with the flow and I needed to get myself back on track. I'm still working on getting my back problems sorted but I am sure things will be a lot better this time. 

I'll be blogging weekly. There will be at least one scrapbooking video and I'll also be blogging about my gluten free baking projects as well as some cooking recipes. I might throw in a couple of challenges with some prizes too. 

I'm also working on my next BPC class which will be SOOOOOO MUCH FUN. It is for beginners and advanced scrapbookers and it'll be packed full of ideas, videos, you name it. 

I want to keep everything fun and low key. No worries, no hassles, no competition just FUN FUN FUN. 

So here is my first layout of the year. A bit of paint, a die cut (cut with my cameo, still love it) and lots of embellishments.
I don't know why the full layout picture is blurry because the original isn't. So sorry about that.

I'll be back tomorrow with a video.
 Have a wonderful Saturday.
