Mini album and three little ones.

I was smitten with the exclusive papers in the Hip Kit December kit, that I had to create a cute little mini album.  I had these photos taken in the space of a few minutes. Shows so many different characters of the kiddos.
I enjoyed putting this together, just treating each page like a card with lots of stitching and embellishments.

start of 2018 Project Life

I'm so excited to share that i will be continuing my project life for twenty -eighteen. This, I think is my 6th year.. don't quote me that, because I've lost count. Tee Hee.
I enjoy project life and there is no thought of not doing it this year. 

Let me share 3 Tips that help me do this throughout the year and a few things that will help me complete it more effectively.

Tip 1: Take photos. I know that's a no brainier and bit of a 'duh' moment. But I found last year, my photos had back off a little bit. I took more photos of my daughter than of my boys, therefore meaning that I didn't actually find in twenty seventeen that I had a lot of photos of them :( So instead of me saying, "I'm going to take a photo everyday this year"  - because I'm setting myself up for failure. I wake each morning with an intention to take a photo of something in that day to tell my story. So take photos and have a daily intention to take one.

Tip 2: I always have a tray with my Hip Kit club kit in it, so each day I plan 'me' time. I spend 15 mins a day on recording a memory. It simply mean printing the photo or sticking in the picture the kids drew. 

Tip 3: Keep true to why your doing project life. For me, I'm preserving memories and freezing the moment so my grey hair doesn't fail me! 

Who's doing project life with me??

bright flowers to brighten your day

 I love the vicki boutin embellishments in the Hip kit December kit. Their so vibrant and so fun and whats great is they go perfectly with the exclusive papers from the kit too.  I loved being able to layer the embellishments around my photo and to use the sticker sentiments as my journalling.  Let's  not forget the paper clips too.

Pom poms!!


I have a super fun page to share today using the Sketch from Hip Kits, where you can participate over in the forum. 

Who's got the December kit? Isn't there so much prettiness. I mean the pom pom frames, the exclusive papers designed by Irit, the Crate Paper good vibes embellishments, Shimmerz paints and not forgetting the Vicki Boutin embellishments.  
If you've followed my work for a while, you would now that I love nothing more than adding layers and layers. :) So I fussy cut out lots of the flowers from the papers, and then layed plenty of embellishments from the kits. I do think though, that those pom pom frames just top it off uh! 
The great thing about this sketch is that its open for so much interpretation. 
You can make it what you want. 

Just grab your kit and allow yourself to drift to the Never never land while you make pretty things. Trust me, you'll love it!
Cant wait to see your creations in the forum :) 

Here is the process video too :)

Documented December album is..... finished!!

Happy New year lovely people :) I hope you enjoyed your time together with your loved ones and may 2018 be filled with love and blessings.

I had a blast completing my Documented December. Its so fun to put all these memories into one album, memories that are now recorded and wont be forgotten. Not mention how much I loved using the November Hip kits.

If I share just one simple small tip with you, when completing ANY mini album, put all your supplies together on a tray and have it all accessible, so when you have just even 10 minutes to play, its all there ready to go. A great way to make the most of your creativity time. 
Here are a few of the final pages of the album.
Be sure to watch my video to see it all completed.
