I feel so bad for neglecting this space. Forgive me? I confess that I start the day with such good intentions (plan blog posts in my head as I'm driving to work lol) but then I get home after work and I'm like...blahhhhhhhh. Ha! Pretty sad, but it's the truth. The weeks leading up to the Easter break were crazy work-wise and it sucked all the energy from me.
But here we are, almost APRIL! APRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRIL. What the?!
I've only managed a couple pages so far, a third is on my desk as I type. April kits are gonna blow your mind! They're all SO GOOD! Seriously. Colours are spot on. Biggest dilemma this month is limiting what I use on my page, because I want to use it all!
Still need to get the big camera out and snap better photo's of my layouts but thought I'd share a couple sneaks I had up on Instagram!
This one is main only. The pops of colour....happy heart!
And this one has a little from the Add-on and Embellishment kits. Those die-cuts are one of my favourite's this month. Or is it those alphas. Or maybe the rubber embellishments.... Or...I could go on and on ;)
And that's it for now! Short and sweet. Hoping to finish this third page and get cracking on another (got the idea, just need to get it on paper!).
Hope your Easter was fabulous and your week after is not too crazy :) Thanks so much for stopping by!
Take care, Em xo
Just wanted to swing by and share my mini-album using some of the gorgeous Dear Lizzy "Happy Place" collection! I've not got my hands on the whole lot as yet but I've had a blast using the pieces I do have! I've said this before, but the colours are just gorgeous! So happy :)
Here are a few snaps (you can see even more on Dear Lizzy's blog):
I'm a (really) late starter to creating mini-albums but they are quickly becoming one of my favourites to put together - I can definitely see more of these in my future.
Hope the start to your week has been a good one. Mine has been...crap to be honest lol, if it could go wrong at work, then it has - but I've got high hopes for the rest of the week!
Thanks for stopping by. Take care, Em xo
Thought I'd give 30 Days of Lists another try - have only tried it once before and I failed (bit like my December Daily attempts lol) but I am determined to get it done this time!
I decided on creating a mini-album using one of the 4x4 albums I have (I keep buying them so figure I should put them to use!). Now mini-albums and I do not exactly go hand-in-hand. In the past I've tended to go nuts and make such a mess during the process that I don't enjoy it quite as much (the mess stresses me out). So this time I created my own kit and have left it sitting in a tray.
Two weeks in and I'm happy to say that limiting the amount of items I work with is working! I'm sticking with the things I've put together most of the time (admittedly I've used a few different alpha's/tags here and there) but even so, I'm calling it a win! The last mini I made I turned my room into a disaster zone because I wanted everything out in view. Not this time!
Oh and ..,.I'VE STAMPED! WOHOO! And the strangest things is...I kinda really like alpha stamps. They're handy haha.
I love sequin pockets. Lots and lots :) I'm typing up my lists each weekend and completing them then. I'm not a fan of my hand-writing so if I'm going to stick with it, I figure I might as well make it something I like looking at. And although I'm not updating my lists every day, I'm still enjoying putting it together each weekend.
Anyways, here's a quick look through the first couple weeks of prompts!
Anyone else joining in on 30 Lists this month?
Hope your weekend is an amazing one. It's a long weekend here, wohoo! Zack's got a buddy over for a "movie/camp" night and I can tell you right now, there is not alot of movie watching going on. Lots of giggling though. 9pm right now and I think I'll be lucky for them to crash by 11. Fun times :)
Thanks for stopping by! Take care, Em xo
Quick stop to share a couple more pages using the Citrus Twist March kits!
First up is this one using the Main kit only. Had to create a page about my polka dot door. :) And of course that means more circles! My fave!!
And yep, door still has it's polka dots. And I'm still loving it :)
Next up is a page using the Add-on kit only! Loooooving this floral paper (loving the Bloom collection in general though, haha).
Yeah. Completely unflattering photo I know. But it had to be done!
Love the people you can be crazy with. :)
And that's it for today!
Hope the start to your week (it's Monday afternoon for me here..) is a good one. Well as good as any Monday can be...especially when you're at work like me lol.
Thanks for stopping by! Take care, Em xo
