Done and done!

I’ve been working on a photobook (printed at for our families as Christmas gifts this year, featuring our eight month-old son’s pictures from 2011. They came out really well, if I can say so myself, and I’m very happy with the quality of the printing etc. Here’s what they look like:

The other project I’ve been working on recently has been our family Christmas card, I used a digital scrapbooking kit called Christmas Blessings (available on Scrap Orchard) and had them printed using Snapfish.

Hubby says that he doesn’t notice the funny bits all that much, so I’m being a bit of a perfectionist. Either way, they’re pretty cute anyway!

Here’s the image I created for the front of the card:

I think I can consider this goal done… now onto 12 months. 😉

I decided to treat myself this month to a paid kit (which was 40% off at the time), in preparation for an upcoming project – pregnancy scrapbook – I’m planning on starting after I finish teaching for the year.

Here’s what I got (all items from

I’ll post with a few of my layouts once I start on them (the borders and frames will be particularly useful for my project!)
