Creative Journaling - Planning a Trip

We are on serious countdown now.
Almost time for our trip.

I decided to try something different before this trip.
I'm documenting before the trip, journaling a little about our trip planning.

And I'm setting up some pages ready for when we return so that all I need to do is print photos and journal.

I have a video here if you would like to see the process.
It's fun creating the before and after stuff!!

Have a great day.

Creative Journaling Challenge Using Stencils & Brusho

I've been busy creating in my Traveler's Notebook.
I've set a journaling challenge over in my chat group here (everyone is welcome to join)
The challenge is to journal about the best people you know.
I've journaled about my Mum and sister. They are both such caring and thoughtful people.
 They do so much for others.  
I've used the June Lollipop Box Club Kit here on this double page.
I used the stencil from the kit along with Brusho for the first time and I chat more about my Mum and my sister.
I hope you enjoy.
Thanks xx

A Beachy Process Video

I have a new 12x12 process video on my YouTube channel today.

I'm using the new June Cocoa Daisy kit which is very beachy themed.
We aren't really a beachy family, so I've used this kit to document a day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon which is a water park. So almost beachy : ) 
Here is the finished layout which includes some hidden journaling, stencils and inks.
Enjoy xx

Postive Journaling Challenge

Hi there!!
I'm blaming my latest pages in my Travelers Notebook on those super large letters.
This whole process was not planned and took a real twist.
I admit....I hate being in my 40's. It bothers me. I've always been the little cute one. I'm 4ft10, I'm silly, I love Disney, I play pranks on people, I braid my hair....how can I be in my 40's???
But then it got me thinking ….actually quite abit of my 30's were pretty pants to be honest.
If I really think about it, these past 3 years are probably the happiest I've ever been.
So why should I hate being in my 40's??
I talk about the troubles in my video here a little from my 30's.   

So then I decided to do a page about the good stuff right now.
I used to always do a 12x12 page around the time of my birthday, but I haven't done that the past few years. So it's about time really.
But I decided to focus this page on all the good stuff that's in my life.
It's so easy to get caught up on the crap.
Here's what I journaled.

So I challenge you.... Why don't you journal or scrapbook about the good stuff in your life right now.
It makes you feel good.
I do have a little chat group on Facebook which you can find here. Please feel free to join. You don't have to purchase my kits to join in. It's a super friendly place full of daily inspiration. Come and share your Positive Journaling.
I hope this inspires you.
Have a wonderful day.

Are You a Carefree Scrapbooker????

Today I'm on the Cocoa Daisy blog here.
I tend to just get on with creating. I'm generally not one to procrastinate and take hours.
I have a mission and I get on with it.

Over at Cocoa Daisy I chat and share tips in how this page took me minutes. 

How long does an average page take you to create?

Have a fab Friday!!!

Why I Love My Traveler's Notbooks

Hi, I'm finding myself reaching for my traveler's notebooks over my 12x12's more and more recently.
I have a new blog post up today over a Papermaze which you can read here

I've explained a little what they are and how they work and then I go on to create a couple of pages inside the notebook.

I also have a video here chatting a little more about Traveler's Notebooks and how they are working for me.

If you have any questions about working in Traveler's Notebooks, please do ask.
Thanks so much,

Lisa xx
