Project Revisited – Sn@p! Layouts

I’m giving my blog a long overdue makeover, changing the design and trying to streamline it a bit. As part of this blog tidy guess what? I found a guest post in my drafts that I wrote in 2013 for the amazing blog of Katharina Frei. I never published the full post on my blog and I’m sure Katharina won’t mind if I do now.

Back in 2013 I bought my first Simple Stories Sn@p! album and promised myself that I would fill it full of lots of lovely pics. Since then I’ve gone a little pocket-style memory keeping CRAZY haven’t I?

Mmm, I really must show more of them on my blog. If you happen to have the Jan/ Feb 2014 issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft 120 then you will have spotted some more of my pocket memory keeping pages in there.

Scrapbooking. Project Life and memory keeping supplies from Simple Stories

This set of pages documents a day of pottering out and about on 15th June 2013, with my partner David.

A day in the life of Kim Dellow in London, a page from my Simple Stories memory keeping journal.

At that time we were lucky enough to live in a wonderful part of London. Give a Toot for Tooting! Walking distance to all sorts of amazing areas of London. 

On that particular day in 2013 we decided to potter about Brixton for the day and try out a pizzeria that David had heard of called Franco Manco – super yum! We shared a pizza then pottered around the shops.

Of course after all that pottering we had to have a piece of cake didn’t we? There is a cafe called Opus that my cousin introduced me to that does Italian style hot chocolate – chocolate heaven to any chocolate freak!

Ahh bless we look so young all the way back in 2013, happy days!

I wonder what other blog posts I will find lurking about…

A New Project Sneak Peek

Hi folks, my post today is a little sneaky peek of a project I actually have over at the super talented Katharina Frei’s gorgeous blog Kreatives Sammelsurium.

I would be tickled pink if you would hop on over, take a look and let me know what you think over on her blog. It is another new project for me, to add to all those other projects I do! But I just love the new trend in Scrapbooking with the project life/ smash book/ notelet, modular style of scrapping, totally up my notebook keeping street!

Whilst you are over at Katharina’s blog don’t forget to have a look at her other guests’ amazing work and of course the hostess’ work is not to be missed either!

Catch you later.
