DSC_0020It’s week thirteen. Know what I mean?

Well now back into the swing of it as I put up this blog I am happily up to date with my project life pages. I think this is for the first time this year. Yay me! … the real trick is keeping it up. I’ll keep you posted.

DSC_0021Week 13, let’s start at the beginning. This is the week my Amy Tangerine bag arrived. Oh YES, PLEASE indeed. I had to include it in my Project Life because I love it. It’s limited edition fits everything you could think of in it and if you really like it too  you can check it out  right here.

D8E_0826So the Left side first. Oh I felt so much better about this week. It’s so much more me. Back to concentrating on those lovely pale aqua colours in the Becky Higgins Seafoam kit. Yes I see that messy vellum bit but, I have come to like it. Messy but ok with me. Bottom right I used my little template again. You can download it for free here. and watch my  video on how to use it if you like.D8E_0827This is the right side. This week I thought I’d let the memorabilia tell some of the story. That is to say I did not repeat which movie we went to see and where, I stuck in the ticket which tells that part of the story. Used this little magnetic arrow tag to hold them in. Jodie from Polkadot Creative would be able to tell you where it’s from as I have no idea. I just know I got it from her. Really sorry.DSC_0023

Next up my little journalling card. I don’t often use the bi-fold cards that come in the kit like this (or for their intended purpose) but this worked a treat and was the ideal solution.

DSC_0028I used these cute Amy Tangerine letters from her Ready, Set Go collection for the title. I was out of B’s so I cut around what was left of the B in the packet and hey presto. Would that be called the “inverse” of the B?

I think the little tab I added just makes a little more obvious that there is something inside there.


Here is the little bi fold opened up with the whole note to my son in there. I am so pleased with how this turned out I am sure to use this again. Who knew those little bi-folds were so handy? Do you use yours much?

Week13Last but not least here is the full layout left & right side together. And that’s me done for week 13.

Thanks For Dropping In


PS. I know I always say “Thanks for Dropping In” but I want you to  know I really mean it. I am so thankful that lovely people like you use some of your precious time to come here and have a look and sometimes even leave comment. It’s special to me and I truly appreciate it.

    Lovely, lovely pages Petra. Especially love that picture of the kids in their glasses! Also LOVE the messy vellum 😉 xx

    • Hi Sarah,
      Thank you. Could not have done the vellum without you. Yeah it’s a learning curve how to use it but maybe I’ll get there one day 🙂
      Thanks For Dropping In

    Oh it’s lovely Petra. I can tell the old Petra’s back this week, you’re right, it is SO your style. I’m really happy for you that you’re feeling back in the swing of things 🙂 Thanks for sharing

    Lovely. I’m a digi scrapper but I love to see your pages and get great ideas from them! Use your template. Thank you very much! Your family is sooo beautiful.

    • Hi Nancy,
      Thank you that is so sweet. I totally love the flexibility of doing this hybrid. Perhaps it speaks to my Gemini personality. haha
      Love to hear my templates get used.
      Thanks For Dropping In

  4. So glad you got Amy’s bag! I haven’t. It is so tempting but I have too many! Those bifold cards are great. They are especially useful for more private stories. Love your “work” 😉

    • Hi Debbie,
      I’m so glad I got it too. I am certain my hubby would tell you I have too many bags too. 😉
      I was really pleased with the Bi-Fold and already have other ideas for it! They certainly are useful.
      Thanks For Dropping In

    • Good Morning Tina,
      And can I say YOU rock! Yes the Vellum maybe one day I will work out how to make it look flawless (almost digital) but until then, watch this space for more experiments. LOL!
      Thanks For Dropping In

  5. Really enjoy looking at your weeks – love all of the journalling on the ‘road’ – and thanks so much for sharing the template with us. I’ve just returned from a drive across the Hay Plain and used it immediately to catch up on a PL week missed.

    • Hi Cara,
      That’s awesome. We used to drive across the Hay Plain when we lived in Adelaide all the time to come see family in Sydney.
      Great that you got to use he template too. I love that.
      Thanks For Dropping In

  6. Fab as evere. You have a knack of doing just enough but not too much. If you know what I mean! Love it. Hope the bag makes it to see Amy T. 🙂

    • Hi Kristie,
      I have been debating whether or not to take the bag with me. hmmm.
      Thanks for your lovely comment too.
      Thanks For Dropping In

  7. You’ve probably answered/addressed this question before, but where do you get your photos printed that they have that lovely white border around it. I love the clean look it gives to your album.

    • Hi Jamie,
      I do the borders digitally in Photoshop Elements and them I print ‘border less’ on by home EPSON printer. I have a template I use all the time. I do get this question a lot so may do a video on it soon.
      Thanks For Dropping In

    Gorgeous! The magnetic arrow is a SMASH product. I adhere vellum using my tim holtz tiny attacher, or the tiniest bit of clear double sided tape. The great thing about using vellum in our Project Life albums is that the page protectors kind of adhere the vellum between the page/photo and the plastic of the page protector. It’s like a little vacuum effect of sorts. I love the blue colour palette you have chosen for this week. xxxx

    • See I knew you would know what it is!
      Yes the Tiny Attacher. Still looking into it.
      Thanks For Dropping In
