early planning…

hello there. So I escaped last week to the lake and totally relaxed! and I definitely needed it. Our main computer crashed, my allergies had flared up, the kids were vibrating and I needed to get away. So of course I planned some scrapbooking projects to do. When I go to the lake I like to create projects for the future. stuff that isn’t assignment related because when you go to the lake, obviously you can’t take the whole scrapbook room.(I wish!) So I like to develop cards, tags and journaling blocks, backgrounds for scrapbooking that I can file appropriately and they are ready when I need them. So the following are exactly that…my “ready to go” projects. LOL.

I decided to take only one stamp set, 2 colours of ink and 1 cardstock colour. This limits your creativity for choice of supplies, but also allows you not to have to take as long trying to figure out which product to use. Therefore I end up getting lot’s done.
so I started out making journaling blocks cause I  am a serious scrapbooker. LOL! I stamped the background with a few light coloured leaves. then I hand drew lines that I will eventually write on. I love the whimsical carefree lines. Photobucket

then I created some tags that I will use for place tags at Thanksgiving: we have such a large family and my mom started the tradition of name tags. So I thought why not make ones that I can reuse to put beside photos in an album? and maybe journal about the person on them.

then I created a whole bunch of cards. Not all of these did I put a sentiment on yet, as I am not sure what I will actually use them for yet, but they are ready when I need them…

then I created a bookmark, cause I LOVE to read!

then I of course prepared a stamped background for a layout. perfect for future fall layouts.
