Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

Hello from me…Kim Gowdy!

I am back into routine after a wonderful holiday with my family. I LOVE time off work, it gives me time to relax and lets the stress leave my body! My shoulders start to loosen and drop, my brain wonders away from work things and I get to reconnect with my family! Another thing that happens is my creative self grows. Sometimes I find my scrapbook layouts reflect daily life…when routine is rigid, my pages are also. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but I really love when I let myself  be more free. This page I feel is a result of holidays. I just had fun placing embellishments kind of randomly, adding some ink splotches and stitching…I really like the feel!

I kept my supplies simple using only patterned paper from one line: Fancy Pants Nautical Collection. A little ribbon from May Arts Ribbon and some stitching with my Brother’s sewing machine adds additional texture, Scrapbook Adhesive from 3L keeps it all in place on my page and a few splotches of  iZink add some interest.

Go ahead and create while on holidays…or at least about them!  🙂

  1. oh, Kim – I went to Acadia University… of course, this was NOT yesterday… and Pete did not have this winery there at the time. But I visited last year and found myself in this photo box. HOW COOL IS THAT? I mean, I could take 100 pictures of it and never be tired of it. Truly love this. Cheers!
