More PL!! Weeks 9-12

Hi again!! Back today with some more PL pages!!

I have edited and uploaded weeks 9-12 to share with you guys today so another photo heavy post! But I hope you guys enjoy :)

Here we go with week 9 - both pages:

If you remember last week's post at all week 8 was a BH Design L PP cut down so here is the other side for week 9 :) I used the gorgeous Simple Stories Daily Grind range for this week and it is seriously so easy to work with!! I also used my typewriter for the journalling - which I have since sold, my OCD just wasn't coping with the not straight lines and not even spacing blah, blah, blah!!

And the left side

Some Heidi Swapp brushes and I believe that arrow with the heart stamp is from the Amy Tan Plus One stamp set. I have used the matching chipboard pieces to embellish both sides.

And the right hand side

This was the week we added a new member to our family - my THERMOMIX - and I might add, still going strong, we use it pretty much daily ;) That is a little flip of my thermie undressed and when it flips up there is a pic of it all dressed :) Teal chevron.....droooolllll.......

More Heidi stamping, more chipboard pieces and more stamps from the Amy Tan stamp set

Here is a pic of the flap flipped

And, yet another insert - pretty simple this week - some art work of my littlest guys from day care - scanned and printed onto 6x4 matte photo paper on the front

And some Heidi love on the back

Moving right along otherwise I will be here ALL day!!

Week 10 - both together

Again I used the Simple Stories Daily Grind range - I just couldn't resist the backs of those 6x6 papers!!

Left Hand Side

More Daily Grind stickers and chipboard and also some Freckled Fawn embellies - the cloud, the paper clip and the "cute" veneer arrow.

Right Hand Side

And another flip on this page - down the bottom on the right :)

I did have to go back and add some journalling - see that little tag with the twine poking out!! It says "After putting these pages together Jacob was flipping through the album and noticed the flip flap and said "Look, you can see my head", flip, "Now all of me", flip "Now my head", flip, "Now all of me". SO CUTE!!" I did have some prompting to go back in and add in the little tag but am pleased I did, in years to come I'm sure that I would otherwise have forgotten!

Onto Week 11. This week I used the PL Kit from Anna's Craft Cupboard as I was their guest designer for May :) (Insert squeal - I was so, so, so excited!!)

Here you go

The cards are from the Jade edition and I didn't really add anything to the kit that I was supplied but it was awesome stepping out of my comfort zone!!

Here is the left hand side

And the right hand side

And on another side note - I have my completed albums sitting on our low line TV unit in our lounge room and have one on display all the time on an Ikea laptop stand. The only people to really flick through it are my boys but I'm totally ok with that especially when I see them enjoying flicking through. One evening my little guys were doing what they do and flicking through, my littlest guy pointed out Jacob (top right) painted as a pink and yellow tiger (he very specifically asked for those colours!!) and began roaring at the photo!! Jacob heard was going on and rushed over to join in!! It was seriously cute!!

Week 11 we also celebrated hubby's birthday so another insert!!

Here is the front which includes a flip

My gift to him was "that tool that you wanted to buy" but I couldn't remember the name of it so I wrote precisely that on a PL 3x4 card and popped that into his card - he had a good laugh and I go to attach the card and another photo to the layout!!

Here is the back

And last for today Week 12

Again, I used the PL kit for ACC but added in some Heidi Swapp ephemera bits and some Heidi Swapp papers.

Left hand side

We had such a busy weekend I HAD to do a 6x8 collage and managed to fill a 6x4 PL card with journalling about the day!

And the right hand side

I love, love, love being able to include video's in our album, who knows how long this technology will be "current" for but it is a sign of NOW and I love being able to look back and WATCH them!! Another flip too - I discovered in our 1st album that I was taking HEAPS of photos!! A little fast forwarding here but I only managed to fit in up to week 19 in our 1st album for 2014!! I got 19 weeks in and a massive 15 inserts!!

If you have made it this far through, thank you so much!!

I will hopefully be again very soon with something else to share!! Maybe something NOT PL before my next PL share!!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!!
