Family Memory album

This week on The Heidi Swapp blog we are sharing projects using the new Mixed Company Memory File kits that are available now. I decided to make a family keepsake album and frame that celebrates my family and our memories. I have a step x step on the  blog that shares how I created the frame using her stencils and Colorshine.

The memory file album lifts out of the frame to be viewed.

 I have combined 6 memory files in total to complete my project. I  have added in photos and stories from the beginning of my husband's relationship, including our wedding, honeymoon and first pregnancy.

The fun flair is from Greatest View.


I documented our family memories after our boys were born to present day.


I plan to have my sons write their thoughts every few years on our family..

 I have created  pages that can be added to in the future as our family continues to create more memories and stories.

I have mixed in older Memory Files from previous collections to show how Mixed Company works so effortlessly with these items.

I love that this project now sits in my lounge room in the frame that all can view and share and that I can add to it  every year with our new memories that are definitely worth saving!

This week over at JOT magazine we have been celebrating Project Life but in a different way. Kim asked us to create a layout using 3x4 cards from a Core Kit from Becky Higgins. I chose these bright happy cards which matched the bright happy colours in my photo perfectly. I teamed these up with some NEW papers and embellishments from Heidi Swapp.

I have added in some machine stitching and layered over some Epoxy words, Color Magic goodies and used the new yummy Navy Colorshine!

Love the flair from Greatest View.

 I had to sprinkle in some sequins as well!

Mummy I love you!

A new mood board has gone up over at JOT magazine. I was lucky enough to be the Guest Pinner and I had a heap of  fun collecting the mood board images, of course I had to add in a touch of yellow (wink).
The colours and patterns were just a perfect match for the Pebbles new 'From Me to You' collection.  

I added in a mini voice recorder with the words from my son "I love you Mummy" I just love this, the way he says it, his intonation... just melts me every time.

I tried a bit of water colour painting on the photo mat under my photo.

I've added in some machine stitching for a different look.

I hope you can play along !

Navy and Citron!!!!!

Over on the Heidi Swapp blog we have been celebrating the new Color Shine colours that were released recently at CHA.
 I got to play with Citron and Navy. They are just so delish and I came up with this layout. There are step x step instructions on Heidi's blog showing how I created some of the elements for my page!

I created a shaker frame.

 The new ColorShine Colours Navy and Citron!

falling behind...

I have fallen behind in my project life, currently I am at week 33. I hope to do some catching up over the weekend.

The left side. You can see I am a bit obsessed with my QR codes.

...and the right side.

This one includes a lovely card which came all the way from Canada from my sweet friend and fellow Heidi Swapp Media Team member Lindsay Bateman.
