Project Life Update...

If you've been to my blog before then you may have read about Becky Higgin's Project Life
I first read about Project Life at the end of last year, thought it was a great idea, ordered myself a kit and the rest is history!

For me, I saw it as a way to keep taking photo's without the stress of actually getting these photos onto pages and then into Albums. I'm already so far behind with my Scrapbooking (3 overseas trips and probably 5 years worth sitting on the computer)and I love that Project Life simplifies the way I can now Scrapbook!

I am very proud of myself that I have been able to keep up with it throughout the whole year. I decided to do my album as a Weekly theme, which I must admit was sometimes hard at times to do as obviously some weeks we had more going on that others.

I did fall a little bit behind in the middle of the year, but by keeping a journal and adding post it notes to weekly pages, it was very easy to get caught up (if you look closely at the pictures you will see the post it notes scattered throughout) I just jotted down in point format events that happened that week and so when I had printed my photos out it was easy to know where the photos had to go.

I have always been very slack at journalling, even when I did scrapbook so I do have lots of journalling to catch up on. I'm looking forward to doing this over the Christmas Holidays, so that I am all caught up by the end of the year and ready to start 2012!

Most of the photos in my Project Life album are of things to do with the shop but for me, this has been a huge part of my life this year!

By doing Project Life throughout the year, it has made me take alot more photos of our everyday life and things that we usually take for granted or wouldn't necessarily think to photograph.
I did a rough count the other day and up until last week, I had over 450 photos that are in my 2011 Project Life Album. That's over 450 Photos that would probably still be sitting on the computer, unprinted!

So, when the Project Life Kits for 2012 were announced, I had to get mine!

The only place you can order your Project Life Kits and accessories (for Australian and New Zealand customer) is Craft House in New Zealand.
They have just received their huge order and are shipping this coming week, so fingers crossed it arrives in time to go under the tree!

Not sure what happend to some of the photos, but you get the general idea.
Thanks...Jules x

More Christmas Cards...

I have finally finished and posted all my Christmas Cards for 2011 (I still have a few cards to hand deliver to family and friends this week) but apart from that, all done!
This year I wanted to make all my Christmas cards that had hand coloured images on them, since there are so many beautiful christmas stamps available.
I ended up making over 30 cards, although this is not as many as I have made in past years but still I was impressed with myself that I managed to make that many (and all coloured with Copics)
So below are the rest of my cards that have been sent, hopefully everyone likes there Christmas Cards this year!

Thanks...Jules x

Christmas Cards 2011

I finally got around to making my Christmas Cards over the past few weeks (as usual I left it till the last minute)

These first 4 cards are from Sharon's Advanced Card Classes that she has taught in store (I was lucky enough to get to sit in on these class and make them also, so at least that was 4 done and it certainly inspired me to make the rest of them) I cheated a bit by using the base designs that Sharon taught on most of them! Thanks Sharon xx

Thanks for stopping by....Jules
