Changes

Time to say goodbye to Stampin’ Up!

After 10 years as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I am sad to say I have resigned from Stampin’ Up! I have loved the journey and meeting all the wonderful people I have but my life has taken quite a different turn and I find myself single after 26 years of partnership. My focus needs to change and with that I needed to make some tough choices. I would like to thank all of you who have supported me over the years by coming to my classes, ordering and in so many other ways. I hope to start posting here again very soon. I have ventured into some very exciting craftiness which I am really enjoying and is helping me get through my huge changes

Rather than starting a new blog and losing all the creative inspiration I have posted here I will just carry it on. I am and forever will be The Daffyscrapper and maybe one day I will come back to Stampin’ Up! but for now
I wish you all the best and hope you have inky fingers and piles of lovely paper for years to come.

Mixed media, Scrapbooking, travellers notebook

So I guess you want to know where I’ve been…..

I’ve been exploring people! And I’ve been to some wild places considering I never left home. I have been having some fun with different medias and formats. Lately Ive popped back into Scrapbooking, if I ever really left it at all.

Here’s a wee a sampling of my creations. Mixed Media Altered Book Pages, Collage, Drawing and Water colouring, Travellers Notebook listing and memory keeping pages.

Different way of documenting

I have been exploring Travellers Notebooks recently as a different way to document thoughts, things I want to remember or reminisce about and having a “feel good” book of inspiration for when things are tough. I love that I can have different notebooks for different purposes and I can really break out and experiment with techniques or styles I haven’t tried before.  This isn’t the project I was going to share with you today but after a fun filled day with my family (and discovering there was no ink in the printer to print the photos for said project) this is the one you get instead.

This is a spread from my “Change” notebook where I am gathering supportive quotes for helping me to make some life changes.

The best thing about this layout was that I used up some of my sadly neglected Washi Tapes along with some paper strips.

I made the notebook myself and it measures 11 X 21 cm when closed. I’ve also made my own covers that hold 4 notebooks. Gotta love Youtube and the people who share their knowledge and creativity so freely.
