Project Life catch up! 19 & 21

I suddenly realised I had not posted week 19, so here it is! Using the project life cards is making it look more uniform, mine are from Studio Calico. I am also making a conscious effort to reduce the amount of photo's I have on each spread. I was getting hooked on including everything that happened because I was not 12 x 12 scrapping. I stitched some neon sequins on a card in the left hand spread, who says you can't use sequins with boys!

Here is week 21.

I liked the idea of including some more sequins, this time in a clear packet on top of a camera journaling card for extra interest. TFLx
If you want to see more layouts and photo's as they happen, look for me ( cannycrafter) on Instagram or Twitter.

Happy Little Moments altered book

This class, over at Studio Calico, is a class I took last year too (here) and it still inspires me! I took the opportunity to make an album with some old photo's I had in an 8x8 album that I did not like and it was not getting looked at. The format of the pictures was large, but I am still happy with the overall effect. I plan to make more books based on other stages of my son's life, to make a set. I tried to keep it masculine, as he is all boy. Not my usual colour palette, but it works. TFLx

Mini album from cardboard packaging

Just finished a mini album using some old photo's from 2005. I found an old 8x8 album, I hurriedly put together for DS2's 18th party, badly scrapped! I decided to liberate them and make the contents into two mini's. Here is the first one, covers made from an Amazon cardboard packaging envelope covered with Amy Tangerine papers.

Used extra pages made from chipboard and envelopes of various sizes. Made all the pages using Studio Calico's Pop Off The Page class as inspiration. Went layering crazy.

Love how it turned out! TFLx
