PL week three, pretty simple – the key word for this years album. I used one design A protector and one design J protector this week. Predictably lots of snow photos included in this spread, I supplemented it with my usual weekly recap (my own card design) The week number card (my own background design with September Blues week number circle) and a couple of filler cards of my own.

PHEW – first full working week completed – well almost !
Spending time this weekend putting together my PL for the last two weeks, as usual I have been procrastinating.
You know how this goes , right. Buy a kit or use your stash, to corner round or not, make your own date cards or use someone else’s freebies, all of them creatively debilitating.
Anyhoo – I have stopped thing, or over thinking.
I have my divided page protectors – I am using a mix of AC project life ones and my WRMK ones left over from last year
I don’t have albums, unfortunately the WRMK linen D ring albums I used last year and re ordered, in a different colour for this year have been discontinued – Major spanner in the works, Not made a decision what to do about that yet !
I’m not big on sticking to particular colours, the same range of papers, a format or even a formula for my albums. I like everyone else on the scrapping planet seem to like the design and colours of the Seafoam kit from Elise Blaha, but I am too tight to pay the international shipping, although I have considered using the AC digital version and printing them out myself.
But I also like aspects of some of the other kits too.
What I have decided is that I am going to run up some freebies of my own, which I will share, I am going to download September Blues Week circles (no point in reinventing the wheel) as they are in my favourite typeface, BEBAS, and in the Seafoam kit colours, which are a set of core colours that I already liked.
I am probably going to stick with my week in review cards, cos that worked for me and I will be using a typewriter font to do most if not all of my journalling.
So I guess in a nutshell that’s my approach and I hope to start sharing my pages on Sunday
Here is my first freebie, just some 3×4 filler cards in some of my fav colours.Feel free to download the PDF in the usual place
Please let me know via comments if there are any issues with this freebie – thanks

Okay – these are for all the lovers of seasonal “to go coffee” I don’t really drink coffee much at any other time of year, I am a tea drinker by nature but during the holiday season, I do indulge in those funky, flavoured coffees.
So here are a couple of 6×4 landscape journalling cards for you – one with one without lines.
I think that they are quite versatile and would work well as a Project Life insert as well as in your Christmas Journals.
You can find the full size printable HERE
Enjoy – but please be aware of the copyright
Ok for those of you participating in some kind of christmas journal project this December, I have started designing some freebies, as always I made the designs to suit myself, but I like to share so if you can use them great. I understand that my colour scheme may not suit everyone.
So here is the day/date designs for this year. I made it really simple and have only done from 1-25 because I like to have Christmas day as my last page. Feel Free to contact me if you would like 26-31 in this colour scheme or if you are interested in having this in just black and white.
I cut out the dates, the design has a very pale grey outline as a cutting guide, then I used my crop-a-dile to punch a half hole centrally in each end so that they look like old fashioned bus tickets.
Actual cut size each ticket is 3x4cm
You can find the printable under the freebies section in December Daily
Hope you like these, please feel free to comment.
. . . for those of you who keep coming back

Get those invitations printed out and sent to all your friends, invite them round for a Great British Jubilee Tea Party or use them for an Olympic BBQ.
The tags are very versatile, use them to decorate your place settings or add them to party bags or hostess gifts for the parties, teas or BBQ’s you are attending.

Only a few days to go until the virtual Jubilee Street Party hosted by The Making Spot
Its going to be a great crafty opportunity to get a few bits an pieces ready to celebrate all things British, whether you are attending or even hosting a Jubilee Street Party or an Olympic BBQ.
My celebrations here will be very low key probably just me and the boys having a traditional Jubilee cream tea, but I am going to go all out with bunting, cup cakes, personal invitations for the boys, balloons and a plethora of red white and blue.
Along with a special just for the making spot craft, I am also going to do a couple of give aways here on my blog. One paper crafting related one sewing related, so if you want to win come on over on the 26th and 27th of may.
Only people who comment on the Jubilee post between 12.01 on the 26th through to 23.59 on the 27th will be entered into the draw for the prizes.
OK so I know I primarily design these journaling cards for my own benefit but there’s no harm in sharing is there ?
I designed this card to reflect the fact that some of my days nothing really happens, those days that we spend at home chilling, doing nothing significant.
Enjoy, these are intended to be printed as 6×4, if your printer allows it you could reduce the scale to 70% or 75% and they would print out at approx 4×3 too.
