Video Sunday

23 November 2014

What? Really? Yes, I found time to make a video. I didn't do a full voice over so if you have any questions about anything just leave them in the comment section. 

I decided I needed a change and a challenge in my little scrapbooking world. I sometimes feel the need to do something different, to step out of my comfort zone. I opted for a new size and made a 8.5" by 11" layout (actually A4 size but it is nearly 8.5"by11"). I think it'll be easier to store this size and I'll be able to use my printer for journalling (might be getting a typewriter soon). 

I also have a giveaway but to know more about it you'll have to watch the video. I really hope you'll play along.

 Just noticed there is a spelling mistake in the journalling. Will have to correct that with a pen. It doesn't really bother me. Mistakes happen.

Today ...

19 November 2014

I have another layout to show. This one was made a couple of weeks ago and I forgot to post it. I used up some of my Studio Calico kits that I had laying around.

I really hope to find time to make a video on Friday so this weekend it should be ready.

Lovely Autumn

18 November 2014

My life has been extremely busy since school has started. I am working more for school as I have new courses and due to that I have less time for scrapbooking. I would love to create more but when I have time I am finding myself trying to relax. I think that maybe I need this at this moment of time. Time just to relax and reflect on life. I am also be drawn more towards spirituality and I also want to watch my children. Watch them grow, watch them be happy and sad, just see them grow up and find their way in life. 

When I do have the urge to scrapbook and I sit down for 30 minutes not more and just have fun.

I created this layout a couple of days ago. Simple and just FUN to create. (supplies: Studio Calico kit)

I also have a blog post up on the sizzix blog with some Christmas tags. Would love it if you'd stop by. Just click on the image.

Just for fun

3 November 2014

I decided, just for fun to apply to the Freckled Fawn design team. I didn't get picked which is okay. Since I have drastically reduced my design team obligations, I have very little assignments. This is very freeing but at the same time I love a challenge and the DT call was a challenge. Here are two more layouts I created for the call.
Hope to find some time for a video soon. I really miss making videos.


Sizzix Tuesday

28 October 2014

Today is Tuesday which means a new project up on the sizzix blog. This week I am showing 2 cards I made using these lovely stamps which come with dies to cut them out.

Here is a peek at one of the cards. Hop over to the sizzix blog to see more, just click here.

I also have a couple of layouts to show you which I made for a DT call. I wasn't picked but I still had fun creating which for me is the most important thing.




Something simple with sizzix

23 October 2014

Creating keeps me sane. I love making layouts and having fun with paper. This week on the sizzix blog I showcased a layout which was very simple. I used one die, a die that came with the Big Shot. Here is a peek. To see more just hop over to the sizzix blog. HERE.

I'll be back soon with a video and some layouts. I am really looking foward to next week as I'll be on vacation. Really need a break from school. See you soon.

Vellum tickets at sizzix

16 October 2014

Hello scrapbooking friends. Just popping in to talk about my latest post over on the sizzix blog. This week has been one of those that you just want to forget. Tuesday one of my son's NoƩ lost balance while playing soccer on the school playground. He was running at a great speed and hit a small wall. His arm is fractured in two places and he had to undergo surgery. Those couple of hours were some of the worst ever. I have never felt so worried. He is home recovering but it will be a while before he'll be able to get back to his activities. He'll have a cast for at least 6 weeks and they'll have to remove the pins in 6 months. Soccer is a no-no for at least 9 months. We'll have to find activities to keep him busy. I thank the Lord he is doing well and the surgeon assured us it will not affect his growth.

I'm trying to scrapbook a little to keep my mind busy and to stop worrying. The layout I created for sizzix was made on Monday and I had 25 minutes to make it. I used lots of vellum ticket shapes which I cut out using the Framelits tickets set. You can see the whole layout HERE on the sizzix blog.
