Things have been quite topsy-turvy these last couple of months but to stay calm in the heat, smoke-filled air and theatening fires, I have been catching up on scrapbooking and cardmaking. Cards are yet to be mailed to those for whom they are intended because I can’t be out in the smoke-filled air for too long. Apologies for that.
I have completed or rather finished filling one 12″x 12″ album which last count meant that I have done 18 pages, I completed a smaller 21 cm x 15cm album with 8 pages, and made up an album cover to fit some 7″ x 7″ pages from the original Creative Memories I had without album covers.
Tidied up all the mess and then started all over again pasting notes I had collected over the past year into specific notebooks – not exactly a small task either.
Anyway, just thought I’d drop by and let you know I’m still here and safe from fires thankfully, and also from the hail storm that has hit my friends in Canberra, some 100kms away. We did have some hail which blanketed our backyard but it was not as bad and the hailstones were not as big as those that hit Canberra and Sydney.
Hot weather is again on the way and with it the threat of more fires, let’s pray that doesn’t happen.
With the smoke and heat I have mostly concerned myself with getting back into refreshing my scrapbooking and cardmaking knowledge before I push to get my business going. So I’ve been working up examples of the types of albums I would offer ranging from the small journal type 120mm x 170mm to the normal 12″x 12″ (30x30cm) album. I have attached some photos of the 21cm x 15cm and 7″ x 7″ albums and I have previously shown some of my 12″ x 12″ pages but I am also including a couple made as part of the 18 pages I made recently. So, that is all for now.
The following photo is of one that I had shown previously but is one that I finished another 8 pages of photos.
