Pretty As A Picture

Well I for one am certainly glad to see some sunshine but wish the freezing cold would disappear! We had the most amazing hale storm too yesterday which was bizarre. It just came out of nowhere and was mega loud as large balls of ice hit the glass.

I'm still eagerly anticipating my first Studio Calico Project Life kit to arrive. I've been trying to catch up with my weeks before it arrives as its the March kit. It would be great to use it to cover my March weeks as it seems the kits adapt with the seasons. One thing I am struggling with at the moment with PL is trying to make sure I take lots of photos!

I've had some really great scrapping time this weekend and its been nice to sit quietly at my desk and potter away at some Project Life spreads and a layout. It's been a few weeks since I've done a layout and I definitely need to rectify that. I tend to go with the flow most of the time but I'd like to start forming a structure to my crafty life.

Thanks for stopping by,

Project Life Week 3

The weeks are marching on and the only thing I'm struggling with in Project Life is making sure I take enough photos each week.  I find it really hard to remember to get the camera out when some particular happens.  For instance, we've just come back from the dentist and I forgot to take a snap with my phone.  Having an iPhone does make it easier but I'm still struggling. 

I've decided that I'm going to take photos of everything that happens.  The kids watching their favourite programme or eating their favourite meal.  I sounds a bit odd but a few years down the line and I think (hope) they will be interested in the little things or the little ways about them when they were this age. 

I'm still working out the style I like and I think Week 4 is getting there with it although I wish I had used my typewriter more to even out the journalling.  I think there is a bit too much of my handwriting.  I've been watching Marcy Penner's video this week on Two Peas and a Bucket.  A project life series video is posted every week and they are really great to watch and get some tips from.  I love love love Marcy's style.  She is so relaxed and uncomplicated.  Her layouts are really beautiful and simple. 

I've also had confirmation that my first Project Life kit from Studio Calico has been processed too so I'm really looking forward to using those products and seeing if my style adapts/changes in any way.  I really love using washi tape with this project and the March kit has two rolls of it!  Fabulous!  There isn't a huge amount of washi product in the UK so this is really a great source. 

Here's Week 3 and 4:


Thanks so much for stopping by.
