~ First layout of 2014 ~

Finally I have found my Scrapbooking mojo. I have various frames dotted around the house which are home to layouts I did when I first moved in about 18 months ago. Since the my fiancée has moved in so thought I should update them with photos of us. I searched Pinterest for ideas and thought I would do abit of a scrap lift to get me back in to scrapping. However, once I started I never looked at the picture again so not really a scrap lift.

I'm really pleased with how this has turned out. I love the background paper which is from Stampin' Up. Pleased with myself as I have also managed to use up some scraps of patterned paper. I love this photo of us taken at a colleagues wedding last summer. I'm not as blonde now as I couldn't be bothered with the upkeep. Just got the frame across from this one to do now. Just can't wait to go to Gogogetaway in March and get lots more scrapping done!

~ Lack of Mojo! ~

Today I had the whole day off to myself with very few chores to do so I planned to spend the whole afternoon crafting. Unfortunately I really struggled to get any inspiration so I made a batch of cards pretty much the same using another of Monica Gale's fabulous designs as a base. Below are my 3 interpretations.

I'm really pleased with the results and I'm thankfully getting a little stock up on birthday cards which is unusual for me. This is Monica's card which I pretty much copied.

Such a beautiful card. Can't wait until her classes start up again. Hopefully I'll be back soon with some more cards/layouts/projects of my own design.

~ Happy New Year ~

Here's hoping that this years blogging is better than the last. I started out well in 2013 but fizzled out after March. I feel it's going to be a busy year for us, hopefully with plenty of crafting along the way.
We might even get round to making sone wedding plans! Can't wait to make save the dates and invites.

Here is a card I made for a challenge whilst on retreat with Monica Gale in September. We were only allowed to use 2 colours eek! Check out her blog for some amazing Stampin' Up inspiration.

I absolutely love the dictionary background stamp and have recently purchased it so watch this space for more use to that. I'm excited to get crafting at the moment which is good as my mojo disappeared along with any time I may have had. So now I'm back in to my crafting I need to get Scrapbooking again. I had so many fantastic experiences last year that I desperately need to scrap. Roll on ScrapaGoGo in March.

Bye for now
