After all the excitement of our fourth anniversary last week, we are back to our normal snooping around one another's crafting spaces, and you can join in too by visiting our hostess Julia at her Stamping Ground.
I have a rather uninteresting table to show this week as much of my crafting has been done on the computer. In January I started a Project life album and I am determined to see it through to the end of the year. It entails making a double-spread digital scrapbook page each week. It is a bit more restricted than normal digital scrapbooking because you start with a template full of 'windows' into which you either slot a photo or a journalling card. I was doing really well with mine, but during May I was too busy, so although I have all the photos chosen and filed away in a folder for each week, I haven't managed to get the pages put together. So this week my challenge is to play "catch up", and get back up to date. I am not doing too bad with just two more weeks to go.
So on my desk you can see a thick folder where I keep a print out of the title page for each of my digi kits. I have over a hundred of them, and some have such way-out names that tell me nothing of their colour scheme or content, so I find a folder of the front pages makes choosing which to use so much easier. And by cross referencing them I then know where to find them on my computer.
Then there is my pages of templates to chose from. This is the starting point for each page and my choice depends on how many photos I want to include and their orientation. Some weeks I have far too many but on others I don't really have enough for a double-spread so I have to use a lot of journalling and filler cards. This is the page I am working on today.
And finally there are my four latest pages that I have just printed, and these are waiting to be trimmed and added to my album.
And here are a couple of weeks' finished spreads so you can get an idea of what I am talking about.
And finally I just want to say a big Thank you to the friends who have sent me ATCs. Two have arrived and I have two more to come, so when I have them all I will post a picture of them. I hope mine are travelling safely to their destinations too.
