This is the place where I share my creations!

Hello crafty new year!

Posted by swewi on January 30, 2016

Hi everyone! Wow – first blog post of the year and it’s almost the end of January! I guess I better prepare myself for another year of bad blogging ha ha! If you don’t follow me on INSTAGRAM already – please do. I share much more often over there!

Well, the biggest news that I had to keep to myself for over a month was revealed at the end of last year – I am one of the LUCKY LUCKY ladies in Becky Higgins Project Life Creative Team for 2016! Such a buzz – a total surprise that I don’t think I’m over yet!

There has already been a few shares on the blog, and I’d like to share them here today together with a few additional pages!

First – my cover page for 2015 – yes I am still on 2015. I’ve only just started March in fact. Am I stressed? Nope. This is not a stressful project. It’s an ongoing documentation of our daily lives that will have to take as long as it does. I am still taking photos and writing notes about each week, so I will be fine. Feels good! I admit that I have just started working on my 2016 cover page though, because it is FUN!!!

If you’ve seen any of my previous PL pages, you will notice that I have simplified things. And it feels GOOD! I don’t think I will ever be a person who has NO embellishment in my pockets, but it’s definitely less than when I first started!!

The next project I’d like to share has just gone up on the blog. It’s something I did for for my Tova – I’m in the process of making another one for Elsa as well. A little box of notes, written on PL cards, telling them a few (big & small) reasons why I love them. For who they are, and what they do. And for how they make my life complete.

I loved making this project, and there are so MANY perfect PL cards that can be used!!

OK, so that’s PL. I am still scrapping as well, of course! Mainly for Cocoa Vanilla Studio. Zoe keeps coming out with amazing collections, she blows my mind. I have loved EVERY SINGLE ONE of them!

The two LO’s below are created with the amazing “Hello Sunshine” collection. Such fabulous colours, and an abundance of fun embellishments to choose from. And you know that means heaven to me ha ha! This collection is just perfect for us in the Southern Hemisphere where we are blessed with a long summer!!

sweet summer days

Now I should probably stop here, but who knows when I get around to blogging next – so I will share another two LO’s with you! I hopped along with a couple of challenges on FB, and got out two older Clique Kit kits to play with. Here is the result:

And NOW I will stop. THANKS a million for stopping by today!! May 2016 be everything you dream of!!
