A New Groove (and more old photos)


My blogging has been a bit erratic and I thought both I and my blog would benefit from a bit more routine.  So here’s the plan.  I will have Photos on Fridays and Scrapbooking on Sundays.

I thought I’d do Technique Tuesdays.  All too often my pages are flat paper with the odd pop dot or stuck on embellishment.  I’ll pull out my punches and use them and occasionally my stamps but my coloured inks and mists and paints rarely venture near a page.  My heat embossing kit has been gathering dust, my Cropodile is cobwebbed and I can’t remember where I put my Bigshot. As for my sewing machine, it is masquerading as a shelf for a miscellany of unused fabric and stash,

And so I say ‘No more!’  it’s time to dust off these unused and so far unloved items and put them to good use.  And a public declaration is just the motivation I need to get it done.  So Tuesdays will see a page with an added technique beyond cutting and sticking and the odd inked edge.

But today is Sunday (just) and here’s another page for my childhood Memories album.  A couple of photos of me and my cousin playing with my doll’s cot.


The main papers are Crate Paper – Close Knit collection, which was made for scrapping family photos.  The sketch is from Stuck?! and I’ve added a doily so I’m linking up with Scrap our Stash‘s Scrap A Thon.

See you on Tuesday for a bit of stitching and dry embossing.
