Project Life | Week 25...

Hello Sassy Friends! Welcome to PL2015 Week 25! Yay! Halfway through the year (with the documentation side of things, of course!!)
Today I am playing with the bright and beautiful October Afternoon | Summertime Collection. I've also added lots of fun ephemera from Crate Paper | Wonder.

This week was quite eventful for us. My eldest son had his finger broken in a game of hockey which resulted in lots of trips to the hospital/fracture clinics and missing out on playing with his U13 team at State Titles. There were a lot of emotions to record, as well as all the details on how the injury occurred.

I've added extended journalling in a hidden file folder.  This was then placed in a top pocket for easy access to the notes.
The top 4x4 cut apart card from October Afternoon | Summertime Collection was ideal. Not only did I use it to represent disappointing news, but we also had to deal with the physical rain during another hockey match and at the same time try and keep a temporary cast dry!

I’ve embellished one of the tags from Crate Paper | Wonder with a Simple Stories diecut (Simple Stories Summer Vibes). The basket of lemons was a fun way to emphasise my son “making the best of it”; stating that when life gives you lemons... keep playing hockey!

His exact sentiment!

On page two, I shared details about Liam’s injury, photos taken by his dad while waiting at the fracture clinic and even a humourous text message I wanted to keep.

My title pocket was kept relatively simple in design. However, the 3x4 card also has room for more hidden journaling. I managed to include a very notarised version/Week In Review, to slip between the patterned papers!

Finally, I created a filler card with a very appropriate phrase from the Crate Paper | Wonder collection.

I think it summed up our Week 25 perfectly.  Thanks for the visiting..x

Our Story - Mother's Day

Hello Sassy friends!

Sending you happy Friday vibes! I am lucky enough to be spending the next couple of days in Melbourne... yippee! It's my first time there and I'm sure that as you read this I will be missing my balmy Queensland weather, hehe. A little page to share with you today, using a mixed colour stamping technique which I'm seeing all over social media. I love the effect and have given it a go on this page, which is set on a gorgeous duck egg blue cardstock.

The stunning fluorescent pink and orange Hero Arts mists really do not translate well when photographed. I wish you could see how incredible the pigment is in real life! I've layered some luscious gold textures over a bit of misting and stamping, creating a nice, clean 'mess'.  Over the chipboard frame I have placed a clear card from the Citrus Bliss insta cards pack from Pink Paislee and then, my photo. Also on there is a little photo sticker from the new Simple Stories 'Summer Vibes' collection.

With the mixtures of elements, I've kept the rest of the embellishments pretty simple, using a couple of glitter Maggie Holmes stickers, (which I have been hoarding for far too long!)


Wishing you a truly fantastic weekend. If you are getting up to some crafty mischief, why not give our August challenge a go :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

LOL Eve Mini Album with Anita Bownds

Today I'm sharing another little fun mini Album using
Simple Stories So Fancy 

My daughter eve went to a party a few weekends ago and in her party bag she got theses funny face glasses with the nose and mo . 
We were having a little family BBQ and she walked out and sat at the table and started to drink her coke was to funny so I thought I would document it in this little mini album 

I had a few strips of white cardstock leftover 12x12 by 3 inch
Each strip of cardstock is scored at 4inches and I cut one panel off to create the cover

Then I glued the other strip inside the cover so it's like a pull out and now I'm ready to add patterned paper and embellishments 

I also wanted to add some minc foiled embellishments to my mini so I went through my cutfiles that I've saved and found this one from ChicTags

Putting it through the minc oh so lovely!!

So I foiled 2 one in pink and one in silver but I felt the pink went the best so I used them

I put a little tab on the inside to pull it out and here is the full inside of the album 

And here are some close ups 

I've been having so much fun playing with those chipboard frames they are so cute

And on the other side here is another photo and more embellishments 

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my little mini
