Another bits n pieces post! Plenty going on a the moment.. including more work
on my December Daily Not-So-Mini Album!! lol. But first things first:
(you'd better go make a cuppa .... this is much longer than i thought it was going to be)
The Boxx Newsletter was out last week and these two layouts were created from the October Boxx of Scraps... which was really yummy.
Check out this and more here.
This brilliant, colourful and fun Echo Park pp's pack is just perfect for those summer holiday picks... here is what i did:
a bit messy and over-dramatic with the paint work on the last one i know,
but if you knew my Cooper you'd realise it kinda suits him ... hehe
Now onto my December Daily... i've finished the bones of my album!!! yay
i've enjoyed this process so much, i'll definately be doing one again next year.
i will however give very careful consideration to the shape of my next album.
i still have a little numb spot on my right hand index finger from all the hand
cut artisan shapes .. about 5o in total!
i decided to do one double sided page per day for photos and journaling,
but also a header or divider page in between. some of these divider
pages are just transparencies with label stickers on them, others are envelopes
for little treasures or goodies relevant to that day, others are journaling cards...
and there is even just a scrap of cardboard in there too for variety!
i haven't numbered each divider yet, because it will depend on what we get
up to on each day as to which divider will be relevant ie. on a quiet day at home
i might not have anything to stash in an envelope. i'm also doing the full 31 days
as we will be in Brisbane with extended family and will have a pretty
busy and social christmas period, up to and beyond nye!!!
Here are just a few select pages, just to give you an idea...
lots of kraft paper, lots of stitching... and lots of red (my favourite) :))
the front and back cover were a little too 'clean' looking for me, so i stained
some tulle and stuck it on with lots of mod podge (might be a bit hard to see).
i quite like the cross hatched, textured effect. i also had tonnes of 7Gypsies ephemera and journaling cards in my stash that needed using up,
and they suited this project just perfectly, so i'm really pleased i got to use up
lots of old existing stuff. that hambly music note transparency (last photo)
has probably been in my stash for 4 years!!! lol
also some of the new yummy pink paislee old school range in there too.. LOVE it!
oh ... and some MME Lost and Found ... LOVE it too!
ok... sorry, i've done it again!!
just realised how long winded this post is... LOL
Better be off.
my puter is dying a slow and painful death atm and i have to reinstall
windows this week due to a corrupt registry file. We have to operate in 'safe mode' which doesn't allow for use of any drivers....
no downloading the camers, or using the printer!! Eeeeek!
lucky for me i have a fabulous neighbour who downloaded my camera
and emailed my DD mini album pics to me ...
yep - that qualifies as 'totally obsessed' i know! hehe
Anyway, hopefully i won't kill my puter good and proper and will be back
later in the week with more shares.
thanks for stopping by (hope you enjoyed your cuppa!!)
