Scrapping in my TN

I just love Saturday evenings, as I get to relax in my craft room and do a bit of journalling in my traveller's notebooks and planners.

Here is a layout of our adorable Nikita which I've shared on my IG account.  Thought I would share it here as well.

I purchased some planner stamps recently through Marie Smith from The Purple Magnolia.  
They are so cute to use in your planners and traveller's notebooks.

This set of Bo Bunny Tab craft dies was also a purchase from The Purple Magnolia.
Excellent service from Marie Smith.

Here follows a few more pages of layouts from my traveller's notebooks and mini Happy Planner.

Thanks for popping by to see what I have to share today.

Please leave a comment, so that I can return the favour.  I would love to know who is visiting me.

A Few Cards

Thought I would share a few cards I made a while ago.  They are so easy to make. 
Just CAS (Clean and Simple).

This one reminds me of the days when I was a designer on the Totally Gorjuss Challenge blog.
Such fond memories of those days.  My cards were more elaborate then.
 Don't have the time or energy to go into so much detail anymore.
 Far too many other hobbies that are taking up my time.

Another Gorjuss Girl.  Just loved them.  The balloon die is new.
I just printed some dots around the inside edge of the balloons to make them pop.
Added 2 small pearls for effect.

These cards were made just using some plain and patterned cardstock.

One way of using up the scraps of paper that we have lying around.
The round sentiment is from Lily of the Valley. The oval one is computer-generated by myself.

The image on the left is also from Lily of the Valley. Such a pity they do not make those
pre-coloured Art Pads anymore. I used to love those to make quick and easy cards.
The image on the right is from a set I bought at Typo.

More CAS cards, just using what one already has in your stash. 
I just added some pearls for effect.

I used to have a lovely Watermark, but sadly my PC crashed a while ago and I lost all my files,
hence a very homemade watermark which I quickly created.

Tip for the Day: Watermark your photo's, as you don't want someone else stealing your work.

Visitors have been a bit slow, but I will persevere... lol.  This is what happens when you
take a long sabbatical from blogging!

Thanks to those who will pop by to leave a comment.
I so appreciate it.

Mother's Day spoils

Hello friends

Just thought I would share a layout I did of gifts received from my DD for Mother's Day this past Sunday.  It's wonderful capturing these "little moments" as they will become "big moments" in years to come.

Hope this will inspire you to start journalling / memory keeping today.

Thanks for popping by.
