Awesome Ladies Daily Pages Challenge

I love my Daily Pages. I  may take a break from them from time to time but I know it’s a little crafty goodness I can dive into at any time and not feel behind.
For example, I haven’t created a little book in months but for September  I’m back doing my pages, Monday to Friday and enjoying it.

It’s somewhere I can create, practice techniques, just have some craft fun and not stress about it being ‘perfect’. Some of my favourites are nothing more than some washi & a quote card, a quote card and some word stickers. stamping, you get the idea. It’s the home of my Currently cards and my Thursday 3 lists. It’s the place I chuck my favourite quotes or things I see on Instagram.

You can check out my Daily Pages tag.

Fussy Cutting Cuties–February & March

Time for my Cutie Keeper share for the last few months, cause I’ve fallen behind in the sharing stakes.

February

I used a bunch of papers from Planners Anonymous for my hexi page. Loving these. It’s pretty quick and easy to do. More Planners Anon papers and stickers for my Fussy Spread.

Take Me Away day was…. where else but Ireland. So much green. And a special happy mail tag from fellow Aussie cutie, Sue <3

Finished off the month with a little colour by numbers.

Still a few pages to finish for March but I can come back and work on them whenever the creative urge strikes. Love that!

Seriously loving be part of the Cuties. It reminds me of the old TRG lives but without the faith component. Kelly & Paula are both girls of faith but welcoming of those who aren’t, don’t discuss their faith much and seriously are too much fun. Just sayin’

Anywho for $10US a month you do get so much. Lots of lives and LOADS of printables and LOADS of fun!

Recording our Year

I’ve been a pocket scrapper for so long. To be honest I haven’t kept up with it at all since probably 2018. I’ve dabbled a bit with planning the pages but that’s it. When I saw Heidi Swapp’s class Stop the Blur advertised in May last year, I was curious. I didn’t join that month but after seeing a few spreads around the net (& getting a discount for the first month) I bit the bullet and joined. Each month Heidi shares 4 techniques and a printable to use in your planner.
Anywho, I was given the Storyline Chapters planner for my birthday in January and I think I’m slowly becoming a memory planner.

I’ve managed to keep up with the monthly spreads. It’s actually really easy. Each calendar page has monthly highlights, things that make me smile and a few photos from the month.
The next spread is something that happened each day (a line a day, if you will), In the News for major news stories, events, important things to remember, monthly highlights and goals. I’m also including the new recipes we’ve tried, what we’re watching and the monthly Covid stats for the world and Australia. Starting in March I also added a section for what was happening this time last year. It’s been interesting looking back and seeing how Covid unfolded and changed our lives.

I’m slowly working through my weekly spreads but they aren’t ready to share in order yet. You can definitely see when I started getting more game with embellishments. Hopefully I’ll be back soon and share January and February weeklies with you all.

Daily Pages–February and March 2021

February saw me attempt to use the self love prompts from Kellie W to create my Daily Pages in February. I hated it and didn’t finish it. Don’t get me wrong it wasn’t the prompts themselves I hated, it just felt too constricting. I may go back and finish it some time but now is not that time.

Anywho. March. I decided to try a smaller book. It’s just over 3in x just over 4in. It’s super cute and it fits Project Life cards and the quote cards from Planners Anonymous perfectly. I decided to try a few daily themes this month and see how that went. It’s one of the many reasons I LOVE my Daily Pages habit (thanks Kristin <3), I’m free to experiment each month with whatever I like. There are no rules.
My themes were Currently cards on Mondays, Tuesday text (usually a quote card), Washi Wednesday, Thursday 3, and Free Choice Friday. Thinking I might continue with that for awhile and see how we go.

Onto the pictures…

100 Happy Days 2021

Can you believe I’ve been doing this yearly project since 2014?!! I love taking a little snapshot daily of something that has made me happy each day. I start on March 26 and go through until July 3rd.

What is the 100 Happy Days project? It’s a photo project that challenges you to post something that makes you happy, daily, for 100 days.

I originally blogged it over at my main blog but moved it here in 2019 and I usually blog my photos monthly.

I create my collages using the Collect app on my iPhone.

So I’ll see you back here in a couple of days for the first of the pictures. March 26 through March 31.
