Butterfly Basics

Wow, it’s been a long time between posts!

Christmas has been SUPER busy with lots of creating of the baking kind being done.
The kids always love making a ginger bread house and then smashing it on Christmas Day.
I did manage to get a little creating done using one of our new upcoming products ‘Butterfly Basics’. It was one of those sets that I went Ooohhhhh, aaahhhhhhh over and knew I had to get it first! Love the perks of being a demo!! 
So here’s what I created with it. It’s a bit hard to see, but those petals have been coloured with our watercolour markers in a couple of shades – crisp cantaloupe and calypso coral.

Remember – only a few more days to purchase from the holiday catalogue, and then all of the fun begins with our new Occasions Catalogue and Saleabration!

December Daily Album Cover

I have finally finished my DD Album Cover – here is the big reveal! Lol.

I know its not very traditional for an ‘Australian’ Album – but I have ALWAYS wanted a white Christmas 😉 Maybe I will try ‘traditional’ next year. I saw a card on Pinterest that looked gorgeous with the trees from the ‘White Christmas’ stamp set – so I Cased it.  I was however, very nervous about stamping directly onto the album in case I mucked it up!

The December embellishment is not Stampin’ Up!s, but I truly couldn’t resist it. And once I had embossed it in our gold powder – it was perfect!

Overall, I’m very happy with the result – now to fill up more pages!

December Daily 3 and 4

So my December Daily journey continues and I’m actually finding it really fun having pics to remember events every day. Im beginning to understand why lots of people PL everyday!

My eldest however….not so thrilled about the pics I have been making him pose for!

My new Picturemate Printer (it’s supposed to be for Christmas so shhhhhhh!) is helping me keep up and get my journaling done. Too easy!

My front cover is almost finished, and I will upload it once its complete.  Its not very traditional for an Australian Christmas – but I’m very happy with how it is coming together.

Are you doing a December Daily?

December Daily Begins

I have loved doing Project Life since I was first introduced to it earlier this year. It has made my scrapbooking sooooo much easier!

So this year – I have taken the leap – and am doing a December Daily!
You must have heard all the hype so far! And you can choose to do it anyway you like!

I am planning on doing a mini album and a page a day…I’ve looked to Pinterest and Facebook for ideas and inspiration on what to include.  I can think of a few ‘events’ that will make this easy…other days….ummmmmmm 😉

So, I haven’t quite finished the album cover – you will need to wait just a little longer…..but here are my first two pages:

Front Page
Day One

I am using the gorgeous products from Stampin’ Up!s supplement catalogue – the Hello December cards and accessory packs.

If you would like to join in the fun, let me know. I would love to hear about and see your creations:-)
