Finally ... some crafting

I didn't want another month to go by and have only 1 post to show for it. Plus, I've also been feeling a tad more creative this month.  I think this may have more to do with actually having in front of me photos to actually scrap.  Plus, I'm doing a sort of project life ... and by that I mean, I'm taking a photo every day on my iphone and printing out the "my week" app photos.

I've actually decided to do this in a A4 format, as I want it to be a quick, fun project ... which requires little thought lol. 

So armed with these ideas .. I not only shocked myself, but the girls at last Thursday, and Saturday crop by doing a total of 6 layouts! ... yes, that's shocked you all too.  And .... I still managed to make 2 trips to starbucks for a caffine fix.






I find these really quick and easy to do at a crop, although once I'm up to date .. I'm hoping to spend just a bit more time on them, but I'm happy with the format.

A friend has said that Paperchase had some rather yummy A4 files in, so I feel a trip coming on for one.

  6. Yeh! AND great L.O.'s. I especially like the first design with the strips of color. Did you block print the selection of photos or are they individual photos. I have invested in Project Lif supplies as i definately think that might be the way ahead for me. Have not done any paper L.O.'s in so long.

  19. Well done you! They look great and I agree on the format. I'm enjoying A4 scrapping more and more and for projects that need their own album you can't go wrong with a normal ring binder. Its great to see you back creating again. xx

  20. I like these...The format you have chosen works well.
    Some new terminology here but I think maybe A5 means 8 1/2 x 11 inches...sort of like a standard photocopy page size. It works well for your format.
    Looking Good!
