I decided I had best get an album and pocket pages at least so an now the proud owner of an Amy Tangerine album along with a mixture of pocket pages. I decided that I didn't want to limit the style so a mix seemed appropriate though I have noticed that there is a particular style that is very popular which is the A style.
for just one special day, my little boy's 3rd birthday. I decided to get some 'free range' papers as I like to think of them, as they are not from a pocket scrapbooking specific kit but papers that have journaling cards on. I chose Kaisercraft Save the Date paper and will cut out the squares on Hip Hip to create my own 4x4 cards. I also got Cheers and Pinwheel in the same range to use as mats for the photos and pulled out the trusty Simple Stories Say Cheese collection which is getting a good workout! I thought the colours
would work well together and there are some cute bits that I really want to
I then used Picasa to create collages for some 3x4 photos. It took AGES! But it was a lot of fun because it was photos from last January and I enjoyed seeing the changes in my kids.
PS. Should I mention I think this could be a little addictive....
