Cherish the memories ( September brimbles sticker club)

So when it comes to creating, weather it be scrapbooking, art journaling , creative journaling , smashbooking or any other form of memory keeping i thought it had to be big life events or happy memories.

When i see this months brimbles sticker club kit i felt inspired to create a page in my creative journal.

i recently got married, and it was the best day of my life. However i knew it would make me really miss my granddads. Sadly 5 years ago i lost both of my granddads within a month of each-other. it was one of the hardest times in my life, and adding to that i had a baby to try and take care off it was really trying times.
This page was dedicated to one of my late grandfathers Anthony ( tony) this photo was of him meeting my daughter Mia for the first time. As soon as i got her out of her pushchair he was up and standing here next to me. Singing to her and chatting to her making her giggle. He told me about how he would sing the same songs to me as a baby. 
Whilst i was creating this page, i couldn't help but be moved by all the memories that came flooding back, memories that id forgotten about and felt so blessed to have them all coming back to me.
Although it was emotional creating this page, its defiantly my favorite. So although its amazing to be able to capture and savor all the happy memories make sure you create pages that can help you remember the memories that may other wise have been forgotten.

August Brimbles Sticker Club



I really loved the August Sticker club kit this month. I did an unboxing of the kit on my channel .  i really loved the pastel colours of the flowers i knew i wanted to use them in my journal.
This Page is about my last therapy session, id finally gotten signed off from therapy and wanted to document it, i used one of the stickers from the decorative sheet that looked like a paint streak, and then used some of the numbers from the alphabet sheet to put in the date of the last session. 

I also loved using the letter stickers on my scrapbook pages. 


I also used one of the cat stickers as an embellishment for this page.

July Brimbles Sticker Subscription // Flash card craft

When i unboxed the July Brimbles Sticker subscription from Mrs Brimbles Shop i loved how fun and bright it was.

one of the sheets that came with month was a decorative sheet. when i see that sheet i instantly thought it would be great to help my daughter Mia who is 5 to make some flash cards for herself to help her with her writing and spelling. 








First she picked which sticker she wanted to use.













she then stuck the sticker on one of the pieces of white card stock i had already cut to size for her. She loved that there was multiples of some of the fruits in different sizes, she had alot of fun explaining which ones she thought where the 'mummy' ones and which ones she thought where the 'baby' ones.





Once she had done that she then wrote down what fruit she thought it was and how she thought it was spelt.


i really love how these come out. it was a really fun activity for her and for me and a great bonding activity.

December Brimbles box

So December box is here ..... finally ..... Pain in the bum royal mail !!

I will most probably say this about every box but i love it!! i did an unboxing video opening it all up if you wanted to check that out.i love all the colours in it and the different tones of blues and greens obviously with Anna's art work throughout which is the best part about it.

every month there is some 12"12 card stock and this month i decided with some of that card stock i would make a new pocket book that i have been enjoying making this last month. I did a how to video on how i make these on my channel.



 

I love how this tuned out and i still have so much to use. As i said in the unboxing video for this box in the new year i will be starting to scrapbook in a 12"12 album so the other papers from the kit will be saved ready to scrapbook and i will blog about them as and when they are done.

I also love the key-ring that came in the box so much as soon as i finished filming the unboxing video it went straight on my purse.

Christmas bauble baubles xmas craft

So the November Brimbles box has landed and there was three beautiful 12"12 papers in it.

i felt so inspired with these papers and everything that was in the box and even in the video of me unboxing it i was reeling of all the possibilities.

the first thing i thought about making was these :













They are Christmas bauble baubles !!

obviously i really got into the Christmas spirit once i opened this box.

first i chose the paper i wanted to use which is this one from this months brimbles box , and got these supplies ready. you may notice i had to change the size of brad i was using.













then i cut the sheet in half trying not to decapitate any Santa or reindeer.
then i measured out strips going down at 1/2 an inch wide going all the way across, then cut them out making sure i kept then in order.


























i then hole punched the tops and bottoms of each strip.









Then added a brad to either end through all the layers.













then its just a case of folding it out.







Really easy and so much fun i managed to get two out of one sheet of 12"12 paper.

Lollipop Box October 2016

So the amazing October Lollipop Box came today, and to say i was blown away with it would be an understatement.

I opened it all on camera for my YouTube channel which you can find here.

This Box is Kit 17 and is called Pumpkin Spiced Latte Party.

You can see from the items in the kit the theme is carried right through.

this blog post would be amazingly long if i went through each item but some of my favorites are this



which is a beautiful paper clip the felt part is made by the very talented andies accessories and they are then turned into paper clips by Lisa.

then theres this which i am so in love with it was in a bag which said trick or treat on.


its a cure mirror which is totally unexpected but i love it so much.

A Lollipop box Would not be a lollipop box ith out the lollipop and i can safely say ( as ive just devoured it) it was delicious.



All in all there are some amazing bits in this box and i love this box each month it comes. Lisa outdoes herself each month every time and i cant praise it enough. Role on November !!
