Bonus Days nearly over...

Hello Stampers

Our special promotion during July is nearly over :(  BONUS DAYS - if you have that wish list and it is growing? now is the time to cross a few things off that list and pick up some free coupons in the process.  For every $90.00 you spend you receive a $9.00 coupon to spend through August.  That will help with some of the other things on your wish list :)  Just click on the "Shop Now" link below.

Meanwhile my Holiday Album continues.  Here are Pages 3 and 4.  As you can see Page 4 is not yet finished.  I will come back to that one a little later to finish the journaling.  That is another plus for Project Life as you can continue with your album easily and return to do more at a later date.  Love it :) :)  

You can also just use any left over bits to embellish.  I have used the pink feather in the top left hand pic.  It is from my "Perpetual Calendar" kit and an extra left over.  So nothing gets thrown away much in my craft room :)  A bit of washi tape here and there and walah!!!! Everyone will think you are so creative when they look through your album :) :) 

More pages to come soon.

Happy stamping

Project Life Album time

Hello Stampers

I am back from my wonderful 5 week trip in Europe and Italy.  I celebrated my 60th Birthday on a Rhine River Cruise and then traveled down for a week in Tuscany Italy via Reims (The Champagne District of France), Basel in Switzerland and Lake Como in North Italy.  I loved every minute and if I had to pick a favourite there was more than one.  I loved Basel in Switzerland as it is a smaller town rich in history and I got to see parts off the beaten Tourist track thanks to the wonderful family I stayed with on the outskirts of Basel.  Tuscany, of course, is just so beautiful with the cute little town of Greve in Chianti only a 15 minute drive from our Villas and also San Gimignano, a bit longer drive but oh so worth it.  Here is a pic of the Villas we stayed in just to give you a bit of an idea

 So I have come home with lots and lots of happy snaps and will be putting a collection of them together in a Project Life Album over the next few weeks.  I just love Project Life as it makes it so much easier to put this kind of album together in no time at all.  It allows for a quick and simple album or one with a little more embellishment and flair.  Whatever is your style.  For those who know me well I tend to go for the more embellished look so this time I will be restraining myself and going for the "middle-of-the-road" look :) :) :)

For those of you who don't know too much about Project Life I will be sharing my pages with you all over the next month or so and you will see just how easy it is but still very effective.  Becky Higgins is the Creator of Project Life and works closely with Stampin' Up! and all the beautiful colours and embellishments they have to offer as well.  Check out the Project Life line in the Annual Catalogue under Memory Keeping.  You will just love it all.

So here are Pages 1 and 2 of my album:-

I traveled with my high school buddy of 47 years!! so Page 1 has our Year 8 High School photo of when we first met :)  All together there were 9 of us for the first few weeks and then 10 for the last week.

As you can see the photos just slot into the various size slots of the Project Life Page Protectors.  I have added a few stamps and ribbons and stickers from my other stamping collections as well as from the Accessory Packs and the Project Life Card Collections available on Pages 163 - 165 of the Annual Catalogue.

You will see "Duck" feature all through my album as I take "Duck" on all my travels and he always gets his photo taken at the various touristy spots :)   Here on Page 1 he is enjoying a cool beverage on the plane trip from Brisbane to Dubai.  The first leg of our trip.

So stay tuned for Pages 3 & 4 coming soon :)

Happy stamping everyone
