I’ve been working in a 6×12 size album for my project life, so I thought I’d try creating a layout in the same size to see if I like the idea of doing ‘normal’ scrapbook layouts in this size. I’ve put this layout together using one of my own watercolour backgrounds and scraps of paper from my stash ^__^
I really quite like this page size, so am most likely to continue with it.
As I’ve really enjoyed working with watercolours lately I thought that is what I would work with for my entry for Studio Calico’s design contest ^__^.
I’ve created two journalling cards… as my scrapbooking is mainly project life this seemed the logical choice for me. Now I just have to hope people vote for my design ^__^
Got these beautiful acrylic ampersands today. Again I cannot fault the quality of product and service from Color Cast Designs… I love ampersands almost as much as the word ‘Hello’. These ampersands are two inches tall and quite thin so are perfect to include in project life as well as other scrapbooking projects.
Really liked the floral watercolour embellishments, so decided to look at creating floral borders and paper designs. Worked with raspberry, teal and mustard shades and really like how these turned out.
Really enjoyed my little London trip… and enjoyed creating my project life pages following the trip. I’m leaning more on the embellished/scrapbooking style with my project life at the moment and quite enjoying it ^__^
I forgot to mention in the video that the background to the page with the ‘beautiful’ sticker on is actually a leaflet from VV Rouleaux showing how the make bows… I saw it in the store and grabbed an extra as I knew I had to include it in my project life somewhere ^__^
Note: this is my first youtube video… I hope its okay >.<
There was no way I could go to London without getting some Christmas tree decorations. I’ve decided to start a fresh with regards to decorations this year and put together a little collection of decorations in London as my starting point.
The little mushroom is from Sass & Belle in Covent Garden, the little bottle is from Selfridges. The cut acrylic circus style decoration is from the Harrods Christmas store in Covent Garden, it’s designed by Eleanor Stuart and is exclusive to Harrods…. and the cute little camel is from Camden Market and I added a string loop to it.
I can’t seem to go on any trip without getting some new paper. Of course I had to get the gold foil polka dot paper… it’s from Selfridges and it a lovely heavy weight handmade paper. The plus sign print paper is also from Selfridges, from Abigail Warner, who offers personalised gift wrap and cards.
The sakura blossom print paper is from Liberty… it caught my eye across the room. it is again a lovely quality handmade paper and is a beautiful quality design, screen printed and hand finished. I couldn’t say no ^__^
Just got back from a three day birthday trip to London. I adore the atmosphere of London… so inspiring.
Ordering online is all well and good, but finding beautiful treasures in person is so much fun and can take you down a creative avenue you hadn’t thought of ^__^
One place I have to go to whenever I’m in London is VV Rouleaux. It is a veritable sweetshop for the eye, with displays full of ribbons, trims and embellishments… it’s so easy to get lost in the amount of choice there is.
