ESAD Blog Hop - 2014-15 Idea Book & Catalogue

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the ESAD 2014-15 Idea Book &; Catalogue Bloghop, you may be coming coming here from Nerida's blog or if you are just starting out, I hope you are sitting down comfortably. I'm always excited to join in the ESAD bloghops, one because it means I post something on my blog (which I've been very lax since returning to work mid last year) and 2, because we get to share a whole heap of wonderful ideas with you, and that's what Stampin' Up! is all about - to inspire, share and create.

Well, I have dived into some Project Life scrapbooking. I am not generally a scrapbooker, I find the idea of working on a 12" project a little daunting, and prefer to work on a much smaller cardfront! But Project Life simplifies scrapbooking immensely!! Within a couple of hours (which included some kiddie interruptions) I had a bundle of photos sorted and scrapbooked 6 whole pages!!

I have used some of the Variety Pack 12" Photo Pocket Pages, Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection & the Everyday Adventure Accessory Pack. The Chipboard embellishments have been adhered with my glue pen (but should it come off, I'll use tombow - this was my little experiment to see how strong the glue pen is).

And I know I haven't done any journalling, but I will add that in later... You read enough of my jabbering here without reading it on my scrapbooking pages too! :)

Next job is to work out a better way to photograph these display pages without getting any glare!

Now,are you wondering what ESAD is? Here's the info you need:
