UK travel album

I had a great trip to the UK in January and have finally been working on my travel album. Normally I end up using a lot of 'travel' themed products for these sorts of albums, but for this album I've tried a different approach and have mostly used regular product, especially some paper and embellishments from recent Studio Calico kits. Love how these pages turned out!

Here's the title page


And I just had to use this fabulous 'Everywhere' paper from SC.  It's actually 'scratch off' paper (country names can be revealed underneath the coating), although I couldn't bring myself to scratch it off in case I messed it up!

My Project Life 6x8

Here's the last spread from April. The left page shows Anzac Day.  I went to a Dawn Service for the first time in several decades! However, it was the Anzac Centenary so one of the times that I really wanted to attend.

It was an amazing service in the Domain, followed by a run with my running group (several of whom also attended the service).  A really memorable way to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of WW1.

I found a great poppy stamp in my collection for this spread.


On the right, are some more everyday type moments.   I was able to use one of the cute cat wood veneers from the Seven paper Baxter collection for one of Tortie's photos. I have a few more to use in coming months!

My Project Life 6x8

Time for another spread from April's PL album. I had a trip away to Christchurch which was great fun.  Here's more of Lisse Street - great colours!:

My Project Life 6x8

Got a bit behind with my PL album as work has been super busy. But here is my first spread for April. Another great kit from Studio Calico - Lisse Street:


The stamp set this month is going to be very useful. I just liked the idea of using the whole set and stamping it all at once - to give an impression of how busy my month has been!

More cards with Project Life supplies

I've been continuing some recent card making as I badly need a few cards for my stash. Here's another one which uses some Gossamer Blue PL supplies. I'm really please with how these turned out.

Cards with Project Life supplies

I've ended up with some spare PL cards, so thought I'd make a few cards for my stash. Here are a couple of 'just because' cards that I can send to friends overseas.  Both use supplies from Gossamer Blue:
