Okay apologies, this has been a long time coming, in the last ten days life just got in the way BUT today is . . .
Is it a bird, is it a plane, no its a Summer Journal. Chip board covers, spiral bound and filled with a great selection of exclusive Scrapbook Printables Page Designs, fourteen in total, these are complimented by two patterned paper pages, three transparency pages and a keep sake pocket, the whole thing is finished off with a typographic cover design and a funky elastic closure band.
As a bonus, I am also including a sheet of circle stickers, five page tabs, five book clips, four tickets and one large luggage tag and five medium luggage tags.
This is a really versatile journal, document your entire summer a couple of lines each day or add a selection of photos and document your annual one or two week break.
WANT TO WIN THIS – just enter your name and your email address in the comments on this post.
comments will stay open until midnight on Monday and I will announce the winner on Tuesday
Just because its Friday and I am well and truly looking forward to the weekend, mostly because neither of the boys have any homework such a relief, makes for a nag free zone !
also because this is my penultimate post before the give away on my 250th post.
and as it is the penultimate post and for all those of you who have kept up with my ramblings and sneak peeks I am doing a freebie today.
I designed these tags to go with the give away kit, them thought, nope, lets do a freebie on Friday, so here they are, I have printed them out on both white and kraft card stock as is my usual practice and the design looks great on both. the cutting marks are there so that you can turn this into a rectangular journaling card or a page for a mini tag size book, but I simply sipped off the corners at an angle punched a hole centrally and added string – VOILA home made luggage tag
Download it in the usual place – HERE
OK enjoy and stay tuned for the give away post next week. All you silent “blog lurkers” out there please remember “you gotta be in it to win it” so leave me a comment on the give away post even if you don’t normally.
Busy, Busy, Busy the first part of this week has completely flown by, if I didn’t know better I would say that I have been sedated for two and a half days, whilst everything around me has continued to go forward at an even faster rate than normal – know that feeling ?
Looking down the thin end of the school term now, which has its pros and cons, no routine is a very definite pro as is the slowing down of my work schedule ( I work for education related organisations) however having bored children is a definite con, as is the unpredictable British weather, not good when you are intending on spending the summer at home !!
Planning a couple of craft projects to do with the kids over the summer (very unlike me !!) we are going to make our own version of the ugly dolls
I am also going to attempt to tie dye some T Shirts with the boys, sounds like an accident waiting to happen, I know I have the skills to accomplish this but do I have the patience and the reserves of SANITY to let my boys attempt it – who knows !!
So I will be investing in a few pound shop plastic buckets and some cold water dyes in several colours turquoise and orange for the eldest, vibrant pink for me and “just blue” for the youngest.
There are a couple of camping trips planned too, just a couple of long weekends, plus the obligatory but much anticipated trips up north to catch up with family.
All in all a summer I am very much looking forward to and one that I am certain will be over much too soon !
Oh by the way this is post 248 !!!!!
Just a very short post to say that I have a set of Travel Ticket Tags as this weeks freebie over on UKScrappers today.
Don’t miss out, these look really nifty printed out on either white or kraft card stock, so get on over to UKS and get the free download.
I did this layout a while ago as part of a feature over on Shimelle.com, I designed the tailor made Dublin travel ticket tag,for this layout, this is where the inspiration came from for the UKS printable set.
OK I really enjoyed this feature last month so I am doing it again this month …
