Getting back to messy work is never easy

I’ve been working on my monthly project life photos but the thought of stopping scrapbooking has been on the back of my mind. One half of me thinks it would be nice to clear out all my stash. Maybe start a new hobby that takes up less space yet the other half of me still can’t bear to stop. The creative process is what I enjoy the most. So after dragging my feet for the longest time, I printed out the photos, grabbed some supplies and dived in.

This is the layout that emerged. A little too clean and simple but good enough to start

Still love those enamel dots:

and lots of stickers:

Dusting off my table and back to more fun stuff.





I’ve been missing my paints and mist lately and decided to take them out to play. I went a little cautious with this layout. It was a little understated but the effect worked with the photo.

I decided to bring out my bottles of mist for some workout and it was fun. I made my own background paper for this challenge and I’m loving it.

Here are some close ups of the layout:

Love Shaker Cards

Today’s cards were all inspired by shaker cards. I love shaking the pretty glitter inside. With eye catching glitter,  I felt that less is more for these cards so I went with the simple look.

Here are some closeups:

A white on white card accented with a single red heart die cut.

This card had a more elaborate frame but the kept the viewing space within the frame clean to reduce any distractions.





Just a few more days of November and we would have arrived at the very last month of the year ! It has been a whirlwind year and I’m trying to enjoy it as much as I can before the new year arrives. Here is a page I did a few weeks ago and forgot all about it.
