The Story of No Pockets

When I decided to buy the Handbook as my mode of Project-Lifing I did so because of it's smaller size. I figured it would be a lot easier to fill a page, and if it's easier then I'm more likely to stick with it. In a frenzy of purchasing and no specific plan in mind, I made sure I bought every configuration of filler pages available so I could have plenty of options. 

The one-pocket 6x8" pages means I can essentially make miniature layouts to fill them, and so I tried that out for the first time this week. It's going to take some getting used to, to create something that fits nicely on this scale - I mean, I don't mind the giant rose, but perhaps it's a bit too overwhelming on the page?!

On the left hand side of the spread I've used a combination of the Penny Arcade PL kit, and the Printable Journal Cards from this month's Sandlot kit. Bright and cheery aren't they? And you know I have such a thing for deers!

I'm a little bit head-over-heels for the Color Theory Inks and Refills lately. I've never really considered Refills to be an essential part of my stash before, I thought they were just for filling up dry Ink Pads. But there's so many different techniques you can use them for! Today, over on the Shimelle blog (yes, can you believe it?!!!) I'm sharing my techniques for creating an ombre title and some background stamping - all using the Ink Refills. I'd love for you to check it out and let me know what you think.

Happy Scrapping,



  1. LOL. I've just been to Shimelle's blog and enjoyed your guest post, and was thrilled to see a fellow Aussie. So, naturally, I came here to check things out. Great site. What I just got the most giggles out of is your husband and kids youtube clip showcasing the Sandalot kits etc. So funny. "Oh Crikey", "thingy's", and other gems. And your kids were just so awesome 'helping out'. The layout above is lovely, and I really like the flower. It's eyecatching and draws to the photo. Look forward to seeing some more. Paula from QLD

  2. Loved your post on Shimelle's site, and your girls are gorgeous! Love the "sad face" photo and the caption ;)
