It’s been 5 months since i last blogged. I think it has been a worthwhile break to get on with things that require doing! Posting on the blog has taken a backseat then and i think i’m ready to get going again.
Like many of my ‘older’ scrapbooking friends, i have destashed and cleared out my scrapbooking supplies and decided that 2012 will be the year i stop buying. (It’s easier for me, as i still get some supplies free of charge, since i work at a LSS). I guess all we need to do is to look at our stash, and we should see lots of materials unused. They may be acid and lignin-free, but i’m sure these materials look better on our scrapbooks than on their own!
Super inspired by scrappers, especially Leena, who are focusing on recording their memory through Project Life, i decided to embark on that journey as well. I always thought that was what scrapbooking is about, recording memories that matter. So even though we’re in the mid of February, who cares! I’m ready.
I’m going to see how this goes but here is my first page for Project Life at Week 8. Yup, cant seem to get away from a layout!
Decided to go with kraft, teal and red for now. Not sure if i’ll change my mind on the colour scheme halfway through! I’ve also added some hidden journaling on the page as i didnt know where to put all those words! Seem to work well =)
My page for Week 8 (19 – 26 Feb…opps..26 is supposed to be Week 9. Oh well!). As this will go behind the 12″ x 12 layout, i did the segmenting myself in place of pocket sleeves. Did some stitching but not sure if it was worthwhile *haha* and photo collages.
Thanks for dropping by! I’ll try to keep up Project Life.
Today is a Wednesday and i’m working on my class schedule for October. Will be teaching classes in the afternoon and night!
I love mornings like this, having a purpose, listening to hymns, sitting in my room. So many scrapping ideas in my brain, storing them for usage later! I think i need an idea book…hmm..that’s another idea!
So where have i been this month?
Headed to Perth for the most wonderful family holiday i’ve had since a long time. Traveling in a big group is difficult and well, sometimes we let our emotions rule our minds. But really, the memories that stay, are those of great love and kinship! It was an amazing trip, planning for the next one soon..
And we celebrated rebecca’s birthday last Saturday, time really flies…she’s now three!
Back to designing for class and next month i will have three projects! Will show you once i’ve photos of them. In the meantime, do head over to Sharon’s blog to see what she’s cooking for Laines in October!
Back to work =)
..and maybe a little yellow?
We were all excited at the new brand Authentique Paper, when it came into our stores the first time. The one with the floral design sold out the first day!
I bought some when the next shipment came in, and here’s a layout i did. I love the small sheets of noteables, excepts, icons and all the embellishments that came with it.
I love the aeroplane! Don’t you?
Love the quotes!! =)
The heart shaped chipboard is from Cosmo Cricket =)
Even the brand stripes has quotes!!! “If you want to be happy, be.”
How do you like my real stitches and fake stitches? I finally took out my sewing machine after quite a long time. I even had to find the plug from the storeroom!
Oh! And the winner of my two cards and 4 tags is…*drum roll*
