I am so pleased to be participating in a video scrapbooking series hosted by an old DT friend of mine, Audrey Yeager. She put a call out into one of my Facebook groups and I was more than happy to help her.
She is posting 21 layouts over the course of June, July and August. That’s 21 inspirational ideas to help you scrap your summertime photos! And that’s just from her. She’s got special guests helping her each day so that makes 42 inspirational ideas! But wait, there’s more! Some days (like today) she’s got a couple special guests. Now how many inspirational ideas are there?
I took on the challenge and rolled it into my 100 Day Challenge of creating a card every day. Since today is the last day of April I thought I’d pick my 5 favourite cards that I made through this challenge. Continue reading »
I was wondering what I’d do for this part of the class as I no longer subscribe to a kit cub and any kits I received in the past have long since been split up and put into my stash. And then I found five bags full of paper scraps with five colour schemes and I knew I could use them! I also knew I’d put these kits together for a previous class over with Shimelle but couldn’t remember which one. After a bit of research (okay, a lot of Shimelle video watching) I found my answer. They were part of her process towards the end of her The 20 Project class.
I’ve included a link to it as even though it’s 2 years old, the content is still available, timely, and worth the money! And no, that’s not an affiliate link. I just highly endorse anything she puts out!
Okay, that’s enough intro for you. Watch this video to hear the rest of the story. Continue reading »
Good Saturday morning all! What’s on your agenda for the weekend?
I am scheduling this as my weekend looks a tiny bit busy! Today the eldest has a volleyball tournament, plus a field hockey game (which requires leaving the tournament) and a field hockey practice (different team). Middle has a field hockey game and dance photos – said game is about an hour and two bridges plus two tunnels away, so timing of her getting back for dance photos could be tight! The youngest only has dance photos. Only! Ha!
I got wind of it through the creative grapevine and thought … why not? My daily creative project is to make a card. I’ve got a really big craft market in November this year so I am feeling the pressure to bulk up my inventory!
Want to follow along with my progress? I am posting daily on Instagram with the hashtag #100handmadecardsbyalison. Here is today’s card.
I feel like I’ve been using the same set of supplies forever! It’s only been since the end of February … maybe that is “forever” in the world of scrapbooking? LOL!
But with these next few layouts I think I am ready to call it a day on my giant Kit #2 and gather some new supplies for the next part of Shimelle’s class. If you missed my previous layouts using this kit you can see them here, here, and here.
Earlier this week I started sharing the layouts I’ve made with my second Clear The Desk kit of supplies. To recap, it was a much larger kit than outlined in class but I knew I had a stack of photos from my eldest daughters Grade 7 Graduation Assembly to document. For me, having a kit of cohesive supplies to tell the story from one day or one event helps keep me focused. If I have to spend time hunting down papers and embellishments for each layout I tend to lose interest because I get bogged down with all the decision making.
So far I’ve created 8 layouts from this kit. The first two can be found in this post, the next three in this post. Today I am sharing the latest three, so let’s get going. (PS – my numbering system for my layouts is for the whole Clear the Desk class, not the number of layouts made from any one kit of supplies. I’m curious how many layouts I can make as I work my way through the class which I why I’ve done this.)
