Making some scrapping time

It's be too busy lately and that means doing lots to scrap about, which is good, but not doing much scrapping which is sad.  So I'm taking today to scrap.  I popped to the Post Office this morning to pick up my latest Studio Calico kit, which I LOVE and I've added a few essential tools and whatnot.

Inspired by the National Scrapbooking Day video by Shimelle, I'm going to take today and see how much I can make from this kit.  Actually, I ordered an Add-On kit as well as I had a Studio Calico voucher to spend, but these are the things I will be working with!

I don't normally work like this - I just grab whatever's around and see what happens.  But as I said, the video inspired me and I wanted to give it a shot!  I'll update with my progress later.

I'm a slow scrapper.  Actually, I prefer to think of myself as a detailed scrapper.  I like taking a long time arranging little bits and bobs.  So don't expect 8 pages before bed.  One page will make this a good day!

P.S. Actually, I haven't got all day because the friends are coming round tonight for DVDs and things.  But sometimes, it is more important to live life than to scrapbook about it.

P.P.S. Can't believe I just wrote that.


  1. I have seen so many scrapbookers writing about this video that I really should take the time to watch it! I LOVE to scrap with kits and I can't not wait to see what you create!

  2. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this great-looking kit!

  3. YAY! So glad to "meet" another detailed crafter ;) On average I can get 1 layout finished in a day, if I get 2 done then I feel like celebrating, lol.

  4. sure is more important to live life than scrap it....sometimes I forget that lol!!
    Looks like a super kit, enjoy xx

  6. Thanks for reminding me of this video. Totally missed it first time round and I think it will come in useful. Some Mom's from school have asked me to organise a beginners scrapbooking class. Could be fun.
