Scrapbooking a Double Page Layout

Posted on

This new computer is both awesome and horrid all at the same time. For whatever reason, these two pages are simply NOT going to line up properly, therefore making the mirror image of the pages look wonky.

This frame is one of the many offered by Silhouette America, allowing you to scrap a LOT of photos quickly and easily!

Memory Monday!

Posted on

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this title sooner for my scrapbooking Monday posts? Then again, this is only the second week I’ve posted any of my scrapbooking pages on a Monday so…

Today’s pages were three months in the making but what’s even more impressive than that, is that these two pages remained on the table, simply covered with clear plastic all that time. We all worked over the top of this layout. Scary but true!

If you hadn’t already noticed, I tend to revert to this style of page set-up quite regularly. Last year I fought against this constantly but you know what, sometimes it’s better to work with what you know then lose hours, days, weeks or even months procrastinating over something else. This being the perfect example!

Scrapbooking should be about what YOU like and what YOU know. Sure sometimes I can see a layout in a magazine and can immediately adapt it to what I’m doing. Then there are times the pages are really all about the memories of those moments captured.

Time has never been my friend hence this year my focus is getting the job done rather than focusing on “pretty-ing” it up. But as Darling Hubby said to me, “we’ll see, we’ll see…

Scrapbook Monday

Posted on

My Alaskan Album has become a thorn in my side. It should have been completed before the children went back to school in September. Yet, even with the teacher’s even giving me a couple of extra weeks, I’m still not even half way through. {sigh}

Hence I’ve now set myself the goal of completing this album before the end of January… and to be clear, that’s January 2015. Wish me luck!

Let’s go to Alaska!

Posted on

Where does the time go? I never seem to have a moment to catch my breath. Which is sort of good as you won’t catch me complaining that I’m bored but sometimes, just sometimes, I think I’d almost like to be… maybe, lol! 🙂

Then again, my Darling Boy went in for both a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy yesterday morning so I’ve been feverishly buzzing around the house all week ensuring all my chores, and THEN some, were completed so that I’d be available to him. Seems I was a tad OVER-concerned as he’s bounced back fabulously. Even has a friend over this afternoon!

This is now allowing me a head-start on our Alaskan Cruise Album. I know right, I’m creating a holiday album for a holiday we’ve had in this VERY year. Weird huh? The pages have been planned as such…

Alaskan Cruise time already!!!

I’ve even chosen the cardstock and patterns for all these pages which oddly, given the destination, are mostly in shades and patterns of green. Green not even being a color of mine. WHAT is going on?! 🙂

I ask you, is a week too long to nap? Last night I had myself in a TOTAL panic as I’d lost a glass of water. How could ANYONE lose a glass of water without even moving? Just as tears were beginning to surface I looked down, and yes, sadly the glass had been in my hand the entire time. Excuse me, bedtime!

Ta-dah, completed album – TICK!!!

Posted on

Weeks of work have culminated in the completion of my 2013 Cruise Album. That hissing sound you can just hear is my sigh of relief at this, which became quite the epic album in the end!

2013 Cruise COMPLETED - yee hah!!!

When it came to that Final Page I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do but the photographs eluded me. Eventually I made the decision to keep this page VERY clean-cut and to the point. Maybe later I’ll add the corresponding photographs, maybe, maybe not!

2013 Cruise - Final page!

With only a few pages to go I was so worried that I’d essentially done the same design on every page but as I slowly go through each and every page now I haven’t. I’m still in awe at myself at just how many photographs I can add to a page!

Here’s wishing you a wonderful wet week-end – the perfect opportunity to do a little creating if you aren’t participating in the local Fishing Derby!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
