Life is beachy

Hello everyone!  I'm here to share my acrylic album with you today.  Now, I am not a mini album type of gal - sure, I've done a few in my time, but it's not my go to project.  In saying that, this would have to be the EASIEST album I have ever created!!  I LOVE the clear acrylic - and the Hambly we received was perfect for the pages.

So, here is the front:


I decided to document our beach holiday last year - and add some photos that I haven't scrapped ..


I have used the Simple Stories  Summer Vibes range which is PERFECT for this ...


I actually love that the pages are see through ... a bit quirky!


As you can see, I've kept every page very simple ...


A journal card, a frame and some stickers is sometimes all you need!


I also didn't want to add too much extra bulk ...


and the perfect journal card for the back cover:


and there you go - a quick, easy and fun mini album!!

So cute

Hello everyone!   I am sharing another page created with the awesome Simple Stories Carpe Diem range.


In my DT kit, I also received Heidi Swapp Clear Alphas White.  I love these!!!  I wanted to make a feature of them here, so I stuck them to my background, gesso'd over the top and misted and stamped over that.


Adds some fun texture!

Sweet

Scrapbooking Top 50 March Challenge!

A few of our DT members celebrate birthdays in March, so we decided on a nice sweet challenge for the month!! That's right, this months challenge is a word challenge. The word we would like to see on your page is 'SWEET'!!


You are welcome to use other words on your creation, but we must be able to see the word SWEET! You are also welcome to enter items other than traditional 12x12" layouts - cards, Project Life spreads, art journal pages, off the page creations - as long as they meet the challenge criteria and are created solely for our challenge. 

Our sponsor this month is... WORDS OR WHATEVER - WOW!!!

Here is my sample page:

March planning

I've settled quite happily into my planner now, enjoying the process of planning and documenting my days.  To join me on my journey, check out my February planning post HERE and my first planner post HERE.

Here is what my planner looks like this month:


I loved the February Planner Kit from Scrappingclearly - so many pretty things!  One of the was this bow clip ... how gorgeous is it!  I think it's the perfect addition to my front cover ...


...along with the little 2016 charm that came with the January Planner kit. 

Hello, March!


I added a tag in here ... it fitted perfectly!


The chipboard flower pieces in the Feb planner kit are fabulous - they are thin so they don't add too much bulk to the pages ... and easily altered to suit!  I've painted this one with gesso and misted in pink, and stamped with the dot stamp in the Feb planner kit over the top.


This is another chipboard flower, this time I've coloured it with a gel pen and popped a silver sticker (from the Feb planner kit) over the top.


Here are my plastic sleeves made all pretty - ready for some of my fav pics of the month ...
(paper clip and silver sticker from Feb Planner kit)




The monthly page is probably my most used page ... lots of things to remember and notes etc get put into here!  (I try to take pics when it looks a bit neat at least :P )


And there it is!  Another month's planning underway!
