Planner Girls Collective : Creative Journalling

As much as I wanted to journal today about our recent trip to the Harry Potter Studios I really wanted to get this page in my journal finished too.. My bestie had a baby a couple of weeks ago and I am totally smitten with him.. he is a tiny dot and I swear I feel my uterus do a little dance whenever I see him!! A few hours after he was born Eadie and I were lucky enough to go and visit them in the hospital and that is where we fell head over heels with him!

I used my new LG pocket printer to print the small photo, I love it as it is adhesive paper which makes using it on the go a real delight.

Something new…ish!

This is an announcement type post which there will be a few of in the next few days as I have lots of exciting things coming up. I had a little live chat in my Facebook group yesterday and gave a brief outline of what’s coming up.. if you want to watch that video you can join the group and view it HERE!

I’ll number them off so that I remember everything:

  1. You may have noticed from the changes on my blog that I have re-joined Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator. This is mainly for my own benefit of the discount of products, I have always found that the quality of their products and the versatility is something I struggle to find in the UK, being a demonstrator means that I can order and distribute the products. Aside from you guys being able to order from my online store and join my team, if you wish.. there wont be that much change to my blog in general surrounding this. You have already seen me use their products many times and apart from leaving the links to the products in my posts everything else will remain the same.
  2. For all my scrapbooking ladies, there is an exciting new product coming very soon, a group of us have been brought together to create a hub of information for you guys.. we will be on Instagram, YouTube, Blog and Facebook.. there will be more information on this is the next few days.
  3. As well as Pamper & Plan and the ScotCon events that I am attending this year, we have just arranged to attend “Crafting Under Canvas” in June this year. It is a weekend event and the whole family will be catered for. We will be holding workshops for both papercrafts and Leather work which can be pre-booked.. If you’d like more information please see the Facebook page HERE!
  4. From next month I will be setting up a new monthly workshop, you will be able to pre-order “kits” that will be sent out in advance of the workshop and will be added to a secret group. The challenges will be fully adaptable to whatever paper craft you wish to use them for and there will be prizes at the end. As a trial run the numbers will be limited so I will start taking pre-bookings for this shortly. The price of the kits is likely to be £15 plus shipping but the RRP will be well over this amount. Due to this my planner kits HERE will still be available but there will no longer be the art/creative journaling add on.. this will replace that kit as I’d love to get more involved with you guys when you are using it.


…and that’s a wrap haha, I told you in December that this was going to be a busy year for us.. and that’s not even all yet.. next step WORLD DOMINATION!!


Confessions of a Plannerholic: Christmas Bucket List

Hello…??? Is anyone there??? Or have you all left me because I have deserted you the past couple of weeks? ….. ahh good, I knew you lovely bunch wouldn’t leave me.

So I know it’s Sunday and I “should” be posting a Plan My Week post but to be honest lift is just crazy busy.. the kids have so many social engagements, the shop is busy and I’m trying to prepare for Christmas and a holiday…. it’s mental!

Because of how busy we have been I haven’t really had time to get crafty, in fact I haven’t even had time to set up my new art journal….boo!! 

I did manage to grab 20 minutes last night to start my Christmas bucket list… I know not everyone celebrates Christmas and that’s totally fine but we do and as we are going away over the holidays I really wanted a list of all the things we would like to do.

Now I really am no artist but I would love to learn how to draw, I googled “how to draw a Christmas tree” and this came up..

Edited to add… I totally should have posted this tomorrow as prt of the COP series and I got muddled.. all the other girls from the series will be posting their bucket lists in the morning so make sure you go and check theirs out!!

The Stationery Geekette
A Beautiful Plan 
Best Laid Plans
A Life Lived In Words
My Chaotically Eclectic Life
Pineapple and Button
Pennygate Crafts
Plan With Hannah

So I decided to give it a go!

I used my watercolour pencils and an aqua brush and although I’m not blown away by the finished article I am happy with it…. now I just need to fill in my actual list (Vin Diesel, The Rock and Paul Walker kept me far to occupied last night to finish it.)

I went totally old school on the lettering, I used to love bubble writing in my books, in fact I think my whole GCSE art folder was full of it haha.
