Have you every taken a “scrapbook on the go” kit? Sadly I’m not going to a crop, but as summer arrives my family tends to spend more time away from home. I’d love to be able to scrapbook while we’re there, but I can’t pack everything in my stash. Show More Summary

Glitter Girl Adventure 150: Stamped in the Centre

I try to use my stamps when I scrapbook, but I find I’m just using something faded into the background and then maybe a small design scattered here and there.

A Little by Little B-Side Paper

B-side papers are something I think about throughout a collection but they are actually the very last thing we finalise.

Counting Down to CHA 2017: and sometimes I get a bit emotional about stickers [6]

Sometimes something completely trivial, most likely flippant, and certainly not intended to have a bigger meaning sits in our heads for years. That’s normal, right? Maybe it’s not normal and I have some sort of diagnosable issue here that you can spot from your armchair, but if that’s the case let’s just leave it because it is what makes me tick.
