I am a Master

Yes, I can finally announce it ....

I am a Master ......

No not a Scrapbooking Memories Master silly, a Master of Forgery

I am so excited to be joining the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Design Team for 2013.  They have a wonderfully diverse and talented team so no matter what your style you are bound to find some inspiration.

As I mentioned in a previous post I have a self-imposed scrapbook spending ban from January to June and my plan is to do some serious stash busting with my kits. I can't wait to start reinventing my old supplies. Yes those old papers shall be loved again.

I do hope you all come and play along at Counterfeit Kit Challenge.

Be sure to check back soon for our January kit reveal.

Happy Scrapping


* for non Aussie readers the Scrapbooking Memories Magazine Masters for 2013 have recently been announced. Lovely to see a few local ladies with Honourable Mentions this year too. Congrats Tanya and Deb.

2013 The Year of.....?

I have been thinking a lot lately about what my word for 2013 will be. I have several goals in mind for myself and my family over the next twelve  months including:

1. A six month scrapbook spending freeze. From January to the end of June all I am allowing myself to purchase (and only if I am completely out) is adhesive, neutral cardstock and page protectors. It is going to take some serious willpower but I certainly have enough supplies to keep me scrapping and I will think of it as a challenge to be creative with what I have. Don't we all enjoy a challenge??

2. Reducing the amount of scrap supplies I have and the amount of space they take up. I would like to see the amount of stamps I own at least halved so I will be selling some on ebay over the next few months. I am no longer a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and I think it is time to let some of my less loved stamps go. My scrap supplies and table currently take up a little over a third of our rumpus room and ideally it would be less than a quarter of the room. Definately time for some downsizing.

3. Cleaning out the clutter. We have been in our current home since 1999 and with four children you can imagine the amount of toys etc that have built up. It is time for a serious clean out. If we don't love it and use it, it needs to go elsewhere.

4.  Paying off some consumer debt and consolidating our finances.

5.  Being more active and cutting down on my weight.

All of these ideas have led me to my word for 2013


Yes, 2013 will be the year of reducing my waistline, my clutter, my scrap stash and my consumer debt. Easy huh!! Wellmaybe not but I will be checking in regularly with my progress on these goals so be sure to keep me accountable.

If you see a new paper on my scrap layout I better have a good explantion LOL.

What is your word for 2013??

Happy scrapping
