A day exploring London

Iv never had the chance to really see  London, every time I have visiting in the past I have never got the chance to explore and be a proper tourist. We started on Oxford street and walked to Harrods stopping along the way to look in shops and take photos, from Harrods we walked on to Buckingham palace, Big Ben and Trafalgar square.

After walking though a Trump protest, we then headed to M&M world and China town. I loved china town, we spent a bit of time exploring and taking photos, we also looked in a few Chinese sweet shops. On our way back to the car we walked though Soho and went to The Humming bird bakery for a few cupcakes!

Once we got in the car home we realized we have had walked over 11 miles !! Tip – wear comfy shoes!!!

There is still a lot of London still left to see but this trip has made me want to spend more time in the city. I will definitely be booking a weekend away to London soon!

Project Life ~ My Process & Favorite tool’s

This past year I have learned a lot about how I like to document, everyone documents differently,  has their own way and the favorite tools! I want to share with you my process and how I go from an empty page protector to a finished album page. I’m also going to share my favorite tools to enhance and create beautiful pocket pages!


My Process

Daily, weekly or monthly ?  I Document monthly, I find this way a whole lot easier than weekly.

My process is simple, Step 1 I pick my favorite photos from my phone or laptop, decide before printing where I want them to be on my layout . This helps me narrow down the quantity of photos.  Once iv picked them I will then use the Becky Higgins Project life app to crop them to size.

Step 2 Once my photos have been printed I will then place them in my page protector and find filler cards and journaling cards to match. I will pick out colours that are featured in the photos and match them up to the cards I want to use.

Step 3 Normally after a few days I will come back to my layout and add writing and embellishments to the page. I do this so I can look at it with a fresh pair of eyes and have a clearer idea on how I want the page to look.

Favourite tool’s 

  • Becky Higgins Project life app –  This App has been a life saver, i use this app ever time i need to print my photos. It makes me cropping my images down to 4×6 cards a whole lot easier!
  • Fuse Tool – The fuse tool was a christmas gift so I haven’t had it a long time, but it has quickly become one of my favourite thing! This is how I use it!

 

pocketpage

I use the fuse tool to make clear pockets like the one on this page! I fill them with small embellishments!

  • Home printer – Since buying myself a printer in the black Friday sales it’s really helped me stay up to date with my documenting!

What is your process for documenting? What are your favouite tools?
