My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

Confessions and Layouts

blogged by me domestic goddess On 2/22/2007 10:38:00 PM
Confession time...... Those are NOT my buttons, they belong to Google Images. A terrible shame I know.

Been a busy girl today. The February Scrapping Angels kit is now available for you to purchase, along with add-ons (which are limited). The project gallery is up as well as the start of the kit gallery. I will have to try and photograph my LO again tomorrow, my scanner is dying and I am not happy with the results!! (no idea why my paper looks so crooked)

The class descriptions are coming in for the retreat and with classes like this you will not be disappointed

"Sensational Stitches", "Finishing Touches" and manufacturers like Cherry Artes, Delish, Hambly and Crate Papers you will not want to miss out on this scrapping weekend of bliss. WE still have a few places left and we also offer day places for a snip at £85 with 3 classes included !!

I received a box of projects from Creative Scrapbooking a while back and decided to open it today.

1. it was good to see the layouts

2. Boy has my creative style changed drastically.

This LO I did for the February/March Issue which never got published. Titled Emboss and Sparkle. I did 3 layouts and this one at the time was a favourite. Now I look at it and see all the elements floating on the page. I only did this 6 - 7 months ago and my scrapping style has changed so much. Do you look at layouts and thing "yikes"? I do this too often, layouts I loved at the time no longer please me. It is at times like this I realise how important journaling is, and fads and trends are maybe not so important. Although saying that I do like my layouts at present!. Full and inky. These 2 layouts I have posted have been made 6 months apart and neither display my current style.

I am going to work on updating this layout over the next couple of days and may even use my buttons ;)

    Journaling, journaling, journaling. It's definitely as important as the artwork (IMHO)

    I think the only layouts of mine I don't like are my early ones, as they look so empty! Now I try and cram a bit more on them!But thiose Blonde Moments papers are gorgeous with that pic of I zzy!

    Both the layouts are gorgeous, but you're right, our styles change so much. I've abandoned my style last year in favour of more simple layouts:D
