It has been a few weeks since I have blogged, things have been busy around here. Getting ready for a craft fair and teaching classes means not a lot of blogging time. I thought I would pop in quick and share some random phone photos from the past month or so.
For the second part of our trip to Hawaii we went on a cruise that stopped at all of the islands. It was a great trip with family and friends. If you missed the first part of the mini album here it is.
I added the map of the ship that we got when we boarded as well as some other things that I picked up that day.
The cruise started off with two days in Maui, one of the days we rented a car and did some shopping on the other side of the island. Such a fun day.
We all had fun sharing what towel animals were in our cabins each day and trying to guess what they were supposed to be.
The cruise was a great time with family and friends. I will be back tomorrow with the last part of our trip!
In April we went to Hawaii with my godparents and family members to celebrate that it has been 5 years since their son's bone marrow transplant. He is doing great and it was so fun to take this trip with all of them and celebrate his life.
I put together a mini album to take with me along with my Instax mini camera and a few scrapbooking supplies. Once we got back I decided to print out some more photos from the trip to complete the album. It turned into a huge book, so I will share a few photos of it each day this week.
The album is about 7 inches by 9 inches, the perfect size for all of those items that I picked up along the trip.
The trip was broken up into three different parts. The first few days my parents and I spent some time in Waikiki. I used the file folders to mark each part of the trip and to hold all of my journaling about what we did each day.
So that was the first few days of our trip. Tomorrow I will show you the cruise portion of the trip!
I am back after a little blogging break and I want to share my class at Craft Fancy with you. My scrapbooking techniques class is this Wednesday. We will be making two birthday themed layouts. I made mine with the birthday girl line from Echo Park but if you would rather use the birthday boy line these two layouts will work with that too!
I hope you can join us in class if you are in the area.
I just wanted to pop in and share two cards I made today using my Studio Calico March kit. I used some of the left overs after making a few layouts to make these. Love how they turned out and I just had fun putting them together.
I have been teaching the Scrapbooking Techniques class at Craft Fancy for a few months now and I think I have finally figured out what I want the class to be. I am so excited to share the two layouts that we will be making in class this month.
I had a blast using some new paper from Echo Park and some of my Great Grandmothers photos on these layouts. (Side note: the pictures on these layouts are bad photo copies, once the layouts come home with me then I will put on the original photos)
We are going to work on some ways to use sewing on pages this month, and create some of our own little embellishment groupings.
If you are in the area I would love to see you in class!
Just wanted to pop in here and share some cards that I made for a class at Craft Fancy this month. I was needing some bright colors and these cards were just what I was looking for!
Now it's time to create some more class projects and maybe a few just for me, have a great weekend!
I haven't had as much time to scrapbook lately, but here are a few pages from the past few months that I haven't shared here yet.
First up is a layout all about Fall. I had fun one afternoon with my instax camera and the beautiful leaves in the park.
Next is a layout with a picture of my Great-Grandmother and her garden. My Aunt brought me a ton of my Great-Grandmother's pictures the last time she was in town and I have been slowly scrapbooking them. They worked so well with the September kit from Studio Calico!
Here is another one with my Great-Grandparents. I love that my Great-Grandmother wrote on the back of most of her pictures, it makes it so much easier to figure out where and when things where happening.
That is it for today, I will be back next week with some of my December Daily project that I need to get finished. Have a great weekend!
I have jumped on the Project Life band wagon this year. I spent all last year looking at all the other albums and thinking how great they all looked but I just couldn't see myself having enough to fill the pages each week. Then about a month ago a lot more of my favorite scrapbookers decided to take the plunge this year and I decided to join in too. After getting this first week done I don't know why I thought this project wouldn't work for me. I am a big collector of things, movie tickets, receipts, etc., and I have the best intentions of putting them on pages but that never happens. So having a specific place for these items, plus some everyday pictures and journaling seems like the perfect thing for me right now.
Here is a look at my first week. I am using some page protectors that I already had on hand by We R Memory Keepers and all of the paper and embellishments are from my stash. To make this work for me I am using a lot of Iphone photos since I always have that on hand and I am doing a little bit of journaling using another app on my phone.
I am not taking a photo a day to include each week. Some weeks I might, but most will probably focus on just a few days of the week. This first week most of my pictures are from New Year's Eve and New Years Day. I am keeping things open and just going with the flow. I had the best time putting this together on Monday afternoon. I just hope I can stick with this all year, I think it will be so fun to look back on once the year is over.
Are you doing Project Life this year? I would love to see how you are making it work for you!
