Week 6

comments 23

DSC_0083Doin’ it for kicks, rockin’ and rollin’ with  week six!

Aaah Orange. How I have missed you. (lucky there’s some in the Seafoam Kit!)

A note for those that would see it right away. The “W” in week on this here little card is actually an upside down “M”. The actual W would not fit and really I don’t mind it this way anyway.




Left side right here. On this page I loved playing with the flares on the bling picture. Close up they look really cool and sometimes you just need a little extra sparkle but, by far my favourite spot on this page is the little “smile” card. So very simple and sometimes I just need that little reminder.


DSC_0086Here’s what I really love about it.

  • 1 x journal card
  • 1 x small piece of washi
  • 2 x brackets from Thickers used on title card

Simple in message, look AND execution. Wish  it was always like this and has made me think even more about how to keep it simple.

D8E_0584Here is the Right hand side of the week. I used my little remote for that dinner table shot and I must say it is the best $5 I have spent in a long time! Why didn’t I buy this ages ago? How did I ever live without it? … Yes indeed I am getting in FRONT of that camera.

DSC_0090I also thought I’d add a little interactive feature this week too with the little orange envelope. It slides right out and inside are some of the fortune cookie messages form our Chinese New Year celebration dinner. You never know years down the track they may even make some good sense.

Week6Finally here it is all together as it sits in my album. This week brought to you by the colour Orange and the number 6!

Thanks For Dropping In




  1. I have to say, I’m not a fan of the orange in the Seafoam but you make it work. Looks great. Would love to hear more about your $5 remote. Seriously, where did you get that??

    • Hi Kelly,
      As I was reading your comment I almost thought you were going to say my pages confirm our feelings about the orange! LOL. I love the colours together but am also finding them really versatile if you single them out. So you will notice I have a few weeks coming up where I do this with a colour from the Seafoam.
      My little remote I bought from e-bay. $5 from HK. A bargain and a total gem. You can see it on the RHS of my week 4 layout.
      Thanks For Dropping In

  2. Love the sick bay notice…. All the little things make it so special. Again you’ve made magic. Love it.

    • Hi Tina,
      It was Mackenzie’s very first. How could I not include it? Thank you for your lovely comment.
      Thanks For Dropping In

  3. Love all the little, simple things 🙂 am waiting on my remote…….

    • Hey Kristie,
      Yes simple is good. I think I have started something with the little remote.
      Thanks Fro Dropping In

    Fun to see the everyday disasters like spilt milk. Great to see your pages Petra.

    • Thank you. Yes I especially enjoy putting those in because they disappear from memories almost overnight!
      Thanks For Dripping In

  5. And yet again you’ve produced another beautiful week! I love reading your journaling. And yes, I’m in love with you remote idea too! xxxx

    • Hi Jodie,
      Thanks so much for your sweetness.
      The remote $5 ! It’s a no brainer. Just make sure your Particular model can use one.
      Thanks For Dropping In

  6. Of course, I LOVE your pages! I love the overall look. I like your color focus, which I never would have thought of. (I personally love orange.) And I like the little details, like the arrows on your five senses card. I’ve never used that card, because I thought I’d have to fill out info about all five senses. =) I will be copying that! XO!

    • Hi Donna,
      You are always so very sweet. Thank you. It’s funny about the five senses card because I never looked at it as a “need to answer all these” type thing but, I have since noticed a lot of people do! Funny how different people see different things like that.
      Thanks Ever So Much For Dropping In

  7. LOVE your pages Petra, sticking to one colour (ORANGE) looks so clean and fresh. Love the simplicity of your smile card, I assumed it was digi & didn’t realise it was washi tape until you said. Are the little brackets from Studio Callico Wood Veneers?

    • Hi Leanne,
      Thank you. The little brackets are from Studio Calico chipboard Thickers called “Anywhere” which I got from Jodie. Same as the letter I used for the “Week 6” on the title card.
      Thanks For Dropping In

  8. Love it. In particular the colour orange and the number 6 hahaha
    Soooooooo much inspiration here as always

    • Hi Michelle,
      Thanks as always you are very generous with your comments.
      Thanks For Dropping In

  9. Beautiful page. I’m glad someone else uses letter as other letter. I make “o” out of “b” or “d” etc all the time.

    • Hi Amanda,
      Yes it’s good to get the most out of the packet of letters. Love it.
      Thanks For Dropping In

  10. Lovely pages, as always Petra. I’ve been meaning to buy a remote for my new camera, and have just now ordered one after reading your comment above 🙂

    • HI Kylie,
      That’s awesome. I think if you capture even one image of you that you otherwise would not then it’s worth it.
      Thanks For Dropping In
