Purple is a Death Sentence

There’s a big discussion going on over at the Paperclipping Digi Show about purple and colour in digiscrapping in general – check it out!
I’ve even had a chat about it with my husband Phill and he pointed out I’ve done quite a few purple layouts. So, here’s a few of my purple layouts for everyone to hate! LOL
Some of these date back to my first days of digital scrapbooking, I almost didn’t include them, but then why shouldn’t you all see where I started out from? Click on the image for full credits.

Another purple success story – by Seth Godin

So don’t let the naysayers put you off!

Actually, an interesting thought is that the colours you scrapbook with are not necessarily your favourites, but rather those colours that match the mood of your story or colours of your photos.
I know there are a lot of passionate purple lovers out there, but I guess they just don’t buy digital scrapbooking kits as much as the purple-ambivalent among us.

Emily loves reading, and in this photo is looking at her book of rellies! Only a couple of weeks until we move and can see them all in person much more regularly.

Celebrate Monday

2010 10 05_Chicken burger_0001-1

I’ve been making the most of our breadmaker, and I made a few rolls. With some spiced, crumbed chicken breast fillets, egg, cheese, pineapple and salad, Phill loved them! Emily even approved of the roll though she didn’t really eat much of the salad.

This post is inspired by Simple Scrapper Celebrate Monday

The Paperclipping Digishow Rocks!

If you enjoy digi-scrapping or are interested in learning more about digital scrapbooking you should listen to the Paperclipping Digi Show podcast. It is a fun and informative show, hosted by Steph from the Daily Digi and this week Izzy took his teasing of Katie the Scrapbook lady to the next level…. I’ll let Steph explain!

Fridays are so much fun around The Daily Digi, and this one is pretty funny too! I’m not even sure if I should type the title of this week’s Paperclipping Digi Show podcast? Ok, Izzy named it “Katie the Profanity Lady” – lol! :DYou have to listen to the whole thing to understand why.

The entire podcast was devoted to answering listener questions so it ended up being a really interesting discussion about several different topics. Be sure to leave your own comments after listening – you never know when they will influence a future episode!

I have to admit I’ve been slow to start listening to podcasts, but I really enjoy them now, it’s just like having a customised radio station on while I do the housework! Do you enjoy podcasts?

Speedy scrapping here we come!

I was just browsing some forums and stumbled across an awesome resource at SpeedScraps.

Do you tend to just stick to kit scrapping due to the issues with keeping your credits straight? Well, Christy at SpeedScraps has a great tutorial for you. Part 1 and Part 2.

The best part about all this is that she’s created a tool to track your supplies, called, oddly enough Supply Tracker, and is giving it away!

The tools Christy has make allow you to make your layers, and then it puts them all into a credits layers for you and in the File Info too! Awesome!

So why not head over to SpeedScraps and check it out!

Happy scrapping!

 Emily, we had to wait for Daddy to get home from work before you could open your presents and have your cake. We got you all bathed and ready for bed just in time for Daddy to get home. You opened up your present from Daddy and Mummy - a new swing - had a play outside with the lights on, then had your birthday cake and ate it too!

I also used two other templates from Erin Ink to finally complete Emily’s album.
