i have just ordered Chatterbox Journal Genie software off Meg at scrapbook Essentials….i so can not wait to get my hands on this program, i’ve read about it in books and on the net and it looks so cool. Meg is so great at getting hold of the more unusual things for scrapbooking. and i so love her website…of course in ordering the software i also had to add one or two extra things, like maya road chipboard letters which look great. check them out http://www.scrapbookessentials.co.nz/products.cfm?subcategory_id=116 . i am getting right into chipboard at the moment, there is so much you can do with it. i love painting it and adding embellishments and just making it orginal. i have actually been going a little mad with scrapbooking supplies lately…i’ve brought alsorts of stuff of trademe in the last week and got some good bargins, including some awesome plain jane chipboard sets and urban lilly papers. the only thing wrong with buying off the net is you have to wait for it to arrive and as anyone will tell you i am not a patient person lol. but i suppose it gives me a chance to reorgainse my scrapbook corner which needs a bloody good clean out yet again….i only cleaned it last weekend but its messy again. i have done a bit of a sort out and think i might put some of the stuff i dont need any more onto trademe….like the fisker shape boss i just had to have and havent used. now that i prefer stamp embossing i wont use it so its just taking up space….i really need to cut down the amount of unused stuff…i just dont have the room for it. so i will have a serious spring clean and get rid of the overflow. and now i have all this new stuff arriving i am going to have to get snapping so i have new photos to scrap. now the school holidays are nearly upon us yet again, there will be more photo ops…I’m taking the kids to Blenhiem next week to see my great niece at long last…and then there are the trips to the park and the beach etc etc etc…might even take the kids to Takaka for a few days. I grew up in Takaka until i was 14 and the kids have never been there…and with the weather rapidly improving it seems like the perfect time to go….before the crowds of summer take over the place. so watch this space…i will be showing off my scrapbooking endevours….hehe…now…hmmm the housework is staring at me….if i get that out the way i can start sorting!
please let me know what you think of the layout, its one of two i did for scrapbook essentials september layout challenge
