Pebbles, Paper, Scissors

Sorry, I couldn’t resist changing ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ to ‘Pebbles, Paper, Scissors’ for my title! This month I got to play with the new Pebbles Inc collection ‘We Go Together’ and it’s a corker. Naturally with Valentine’s Day next Saturday, I made the most of this valentines line in lots of different ways. I made Valentine’s […]

New beginnings and a little bit of love.

Hello 2015 and hello to a new Project Life album. At the beginning of my project life albums I like to make an opening spread, which basically fills in those pockets behind what will become the left half of Week 1’s double page spread.

With only one month to go until the big day, are you feeling magic and sparkly yet? I’ve been getting in the festive spirit early this year – it seems we all look forward to seeing the high street names compete for the best TV advert, and I must admit that my layouts this month […]
