School Holiday Plans

Morning everyone. I hope you are all enjoying your day.

I am here this morning to share my creative plans for these school holidays.

So on the weekend I worked out what I wanted to make/do on the holidays, what to catch up on and some things that I have to post here on my blog. With these ideas I wrote them on a post it note so I could stick them on my desk and I would be able to see them easily.
Post It Note #1 - Blog
Over the two weeks of holidays I really want to do a massive share of 12x12 layouts I have sitting on my desk. I do plan on doing a video for that as it will be quicker then a massive long blog post. I will work on that idea. Next on my list I have a Project Life layout share, so a update on my 2015 album so far (in which I am currently a month behind on, but I have photos waiting to be picked up today!!). And there may even be a video for that too, but it will properly be really long. Next is a YouTube share of videos that I have done since I announced I had a YouTube channel. I have that blog post sitting here ready to be posted. I will also do a few posts of other little things that I have been creating.
Post It Note #2 - Holidays
So this list is of little and big projects I want to get completed and catched up on. One item I want to finish is #MySelfieScrapbook which I have to finish the last few pages of. Next I have a month of Project Life I have to catch up on as I mentioned for the blog posts. I also have to catch up on adding photos to my Heidi Swapp Memory Planner/Album. And the last item is to do lots of Blog posts as my last official blog post was back on the 12th of May, so I have lots of catching up to do there.
Post It Note #3 - To Make

This list of very short with only one things on it. On this list I have to make a Photo a Day 4x4 Album of the holiday, as I have a WRMK 4x4 Instagram album sitting there not being used. I not sure yet if I will do this album, but I do have a idea of doing a photo a day as I normally end up with not many photos for my week in Project Life. I will have a blog post about that if I do go through with is 'To Make' item.

So I hope that gives all of my wonderful readers a idea what to you will be able to see from me here on my blog within the next two weeks.

Hope you enjoy your day.

PL JUNKIES DT - #4 - Last Post

Hello, I am back to sadly share my very last PL Junkies DT post with you all.

Well hello hello there fellow Junkies. I am so excited to be here sharing my very last post with you all as a Junkie DT member and I would like to give a big thanks to Jane for allowing me to be on this awesome DT to sharing my work as a teen scrapper with awesome like minded people from around the world.
Here is the layout I will be sharing with you all today. 
Lately I have been loving using paper pads as my cards, as you might have seen on my last DT post. This time I used the Amy Tangerine 'Stitched' paper pad. 
I really love how using the paper pads I can customize my filler cards and journaling cards, add cute little embellishments and more.
A big thanks again to everyone on PL Junkies for all the support and a big thanks again to Jane and all the admin for running this awesome big group.

To follow me in my scrappy journey you can find me on -

Natalie - Creative Team Member

Hello everyone, I am finally back with a introduction of my second CT member and sister of Melissa. Please welcome Natalie.

Natalie - Bio
"Hi I’m Natalie! I’m a California dreamer who currently lives in New York; I love scrap booking, listening to music, and making memories with friends and family.  Thanks so much to Lydia for letting me share!"
I also sent Natalie some quick questions to answer. 
1. When did you start crafting? I started when I was about ten, but it was really last year that I’ve become obsessed with it!  
2. What is your favourite craft? Definitely Paper crafting. I love doing Project Life, Mini Books, and 8.5 by 11 scrapbook layouts!
3. Do you say you have a style of crafting? I would say clean lines, and super modern.
4. Why do you document/craft? I document and craft to remember all the fun small and big memories throughout the year. It’s so cool to look back on your albums and see all the amazing things you did! I also do it because I love it. Playing with paper and getting creative is so much fun!
5. What are some main products you use? I use Studio Calico kits, Kelly Purkey’s stamps and paper, and Project Life kits.
6. What are your favourite craft stores/do you have any nearby you? I don’t have any nearby me now because I’ve moved. I use to have a Michaels five minutes away from my house and I used to go there all the time. For online stores, I use Amazon, Paper Issues, and Studio Calico.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little about Natalie and she will be back in a few weeks with another blog post.

I will also be back later with LOTS of catch up blog posts, since I have spare time and I am on school holidays.

Enjoy your day.
