Well today I thought I'd share with you a new weekly project I've set myself for 2013.
Every week I'm going to complete a layout in my specially dedicated Smash Book, my week will run from Mon - Sun and I shall attempt to share my finished pages on a weekly basis though I can't promise!
So here's my first pages completed for week commencing 31 st Dec - 6 th Jan -
The cover of the orange Smash book covered with paper from Teresa Collins Fabrications range.
I kept the vellum insert and embellished it to match the 2-page spread.
Both pages are decorated using papers and embellishments from Graphic 45 The Olde Curiosity Shoppe range.
On the back of the vellum I journalled onto coordinating card stock and attached it using a Tim Holtz hanger and some washi tape.
I took photos during the week & then chose photos after I journalled, I also wanted an up-to-date photo of Keagan to start the year, much to his amusement....not!
I love these badge style embellishments, I bought them from an American lady on Etsy A Flair for Buttons there are so many fab 'buttons' on there.
I've realised lately how important it is to write......that is actually write in my own handwriting not type and print out. Not an easy task for me as my hands and fingers struggle to hold a pen, but I do have a few large chunky barrelled pens that along with tubing help me to do a little at a time. I love the idea of future generations being able to look back and be told that the writing really was my handwriting!
Since Smash came along I've found myself being interested in Scrapbooking and as my confidence in creating layouts rose I've now started to keep my 'best' papers and embellishments for my Smash books and layouts so that I don't have to give them away!
Anyway I look forward to sharing this Zoe-style version of Project Life with you all, providing the novelty doesn't run out. I am, at the moment, determined to create this year long book as something to look back on as a record of what 2013 was like here, in Zoe & Keagan's world!
Take care Zo xx
