Now that February is more than half way finished it is becoming even more important to me to finish this month’s LOAD strong! I have a tendency to leave projects unfinished (gasp!) but I am determined not to let that happen.
So, without further ado, I give you Days 15 – 17 of LOAD218 and the next 4 layouts that are going into my Harry Potter Studio Tour album. Yes, I said 4 layouts not 3. You’ll see!
I am the featured designer today for LOAD218. So much fun!!
If you’re participating in LOAD then you’ve already seen this but if not, I thought I’d share the layout I created to inspire everyone.
LOAD218-9 A Magical Day to Remember
The prompt is about following your own path and being a trailblazer. I couldn’t think of any way that I’ve been a trailblazer so my thoughts took me down the “wandering path” line. We took our kids to Edinburgh during our epic 3-ish week European tour last summer because a) it is such a beautiful and fun city that if you’re in Scotland it’s a must see, and b) I lived there for almost 2 years after university so I must breathe the air every time I’m in the country or my heart hurts!! While we were there my cousin’s girlfriend (now fiance – yay Kenny!) took us to all the different places where J.K. Rowling got inspiration for her Harry Potter series. My eldest was in heaven! My husband not so much, but who cares, right? LOL! Continue reading »
Today I’ve got my next batch of LOAD218 layouts for you to see. Each one has a corresponding process video too.
Day 4 – Wandlore
Today’s adventure forced a deeper look at the story and I know I have told a different story than I would have because of how the prompt inspired me. It also meant pulling out my newest products. I don’t have anything from the newest collections that were just showcased at Creativation in Arizona last month, but my stash of Glitter Girl products is still new to me so I had fun pulling more of it out for this layout.
Since I’m showing all the close up photos in the video I’ll just leave you with the full layout. Continue reading »
Good afternoon! Hope your Wednesday is going well.
I had a bit of an emotionally charged Tuesday so I took some much needed time today to relax, catch up on some of my PVR’d shows, and get creative in my Scrap Cave. I’d like to share the results of that with you now.
If you’re one of my YouTube subscribers then first, thank you! I appreciate every single one of you! If you’re not a subscriber, I’d love you to become one. YouTube has changed it’s rules again regarding monetization and while I am not currently monetized, it is something I’ve considered in the past and would consider again in the future. YouTube’s rule change is going to make it even tougher for us small guys to support ourselves with our channels so please consider subscribing – not just to my channel but any other home based crafter you come across. Each new person makes a big difference to us!
I do try to bring you content that is well curated so that my subscribers get value. If you’ve got any suggestions please shoot me an email or leave me a comment!
Okay, back to today’s post! I trust you’ve seen a few of the videos on my December 2017 album so far. Today I’ve got the creation of Day 6 for you. All previous days are linked below the video.
