9 Loves...

When I started my travelers notebook I knew that I didn't want to have to stick to the norms of things. I knew that I was going to give myself permission to not have titles if I didn't want to. To not have photos if I didn't want to. I knew that I wanted to make one that sometimes didn't have a purpose other than to use pretty things in my stash and not include any information at all.

So I set out to make a page in my all about me notebook. I didn't have a photograph for this page but I didn't care.

So here it is... For some reason the why I have edited the photos the brown paper under the number 9 is much darker than it should be.








So sometimes I just wanted to 'sit and make pretty things' an expression my friend lauren says. And I throughly enjoyed it!

The funniest photos!

I have had the photo for this page sitting on my computer waiting to be scrapped for ages. It makes me laugh each and every time I see it. Just my son and his cousin messing around one day. Looks those faces!!!!


This one turned out very clean and simple but I spent a lot of time on the little details which I love doing! And I wanted to make sure I used my Cameo lots on this page as even though it is new I still sometimes forget to use it.


anyway...thanks for dropping by!

Its a bit hot...

It is very hot here in the UK at the moment....which means not a lot of housework gets done and I have an excuse to just sit and scrap!

Here is a page I did the other day using the New Fancy Pants...which I am currently in love with!


If ever there was a collection that was mad for me...this would be it...THe papers, the die cuts! SWOON!


Here are some close ups...





I bought the 6 by 6 pad...they are my favourite...I prefer them as they fit the way I scrapbook perfectly and then I buy the florals and the ones that I think will be good for base pages in the 12 by 12 size!

Thanks for looking!

Traveler's notebook.

I spend far too much time on Pinterest and You tube. I really do. Especially if I want to learn about something. And travellers notebooks caught my eye.
So after many many days of research and making trial and error. I made my first notebook. And then I made my first page.




I can't wait to make another page in this notebook, I really enjoyed the size!

15 years!

I sometimes can't believe that my husband and I have been married for 15 years. It doesn't seem that long. I wanted to commemorate that with a new page. I have been neglecting this blog as of late and I have lots to upload.
Here is the page that I have been working on today. I had wanted to have a go at a noughts and crosses design and I finally had the chance to do that today.


I used the 6 by 6 paper pad by Shimelle called go now go on this line. I am part of the Hey little Magpie design team now and I picked it up as part of my design team scrapbooking products. I really love it!
Here are some of the close ups.






Thanks for popping in. I will update here in the next few days with my first project life and a traveler journal.

I even broke out the paints!

I am not a mixed media person. To be honest I have no idea what I am doing with mists and sprays and paints.

I have been criticised in the past for not using mixed media on my pages.....so I decided to take the plunge.

So I basically sat there and watched the queen of mists and sprays Missy Whidden. I have watched every video she has ever created....and Then I panicked ha!

I don't have mists and sprays but I do have oil pastels and paint...so I broke those out and had a try.




I don't have any mists and I really wasn't ready to add water colour on the background using the packaging technique just yet.
I did some strips of paint and added some white gesso over the top to calm the colours down. I then also added some washi tape over the top as well.


I am happy with my first try...



Well its a start and I will see where it leads me!

All pretty in pink...

I have tried to make this page so many times recently. It has looked very different to this a few times. But then I made this and decided that I finally like it.

I only used the 6 by 6 paper pad from pebbles , the tealighful  for this one. I usually only buy this size and then only buy a few of the 12 by 12 papers. I tend to only use small bits of the paper so buying it in this size makes more sense as I get all the papers.

I cut out the letters on my cameo and backed them with the pattern paper.

It is very pretty in pink....

Here are some of the details on the page...
