Wow! It's been ages that I blogged!
After a wonderful, sunny, relaxing vacation in Greece I think it is time to pick this up and start fresh with blogging on a regular basis again. With regular I don't mean on a daily basis because I know I simply can't keep up with that. But on a weekly basis should be possible, maybe twice a week :)
The first layout "Letting go..." was published in HdP. I created it when my sweet daugther was about to leave to Hawaii to live and study there for 6 months. The title comes from the song "let her go" from Passenger. Under the tag is some hidden journaling saying:
"Saying goodbye, now Anne is leaving for Hawaii for 6 months, is not easy! I will miss her so much! But I want her to make her dreams come true because I love her... so I let her go... I hope she will have the best time of her life!
Afterwards we realized that those 6 months went quicker than we expected. And Hawaii is not even that far away if you have Whatsapp and Facetime. Besides that I visited her after about 2,5 months, which made it better too. And she definitely did have the best time of her life! But is was sooo good to have her back home :D
The next layout "2 peas in a pod" was also made for Histoires de Pages. It was for an article about the impact color has. I made 2 exact the same layouts with different color schemes. I had to pick 2 colors + black and white. This is the first one using orange and green for a fresh and sunny spring feel. I will show the other one some other time.
Did you know that Histoires de Pages had an international english online version (Let's Talk Layouts) available? Check it out and read the first 25 pages of issue #2 for free here! Also check out the HdP FB page and blog!
The last project is a mini album I made for a recycle article in Scrap 365. For this mini I only used clothing tags and other items that can be collected from old cloths, like buttons, safety pins, straps and ribbon and so on. The only other items I used were a couple of wood veneer shapes, letter stickers (but most of the text was already on the tags and fitted the project perfectly). to create the little pocket I cut 2 pockets from an old pair of jeans and sewed them together, right sides facing each other and then turned it inside out.
This project was in the April/May issue which you can still buy online here where you can also find all the other previous issues.
OK, that's it for today, see you again soon!
Meanwhile, happy crafting!
