Hello everyone! My name is Pepper. Today on the first blog post for Sahin Designs, I’m sharing with you my layouts for Fireside Collection, as well as introducing a little about me.
I am a High-school Maths teacher in the day and a scrapbooker in the night. I love coffee and traveling. I started scrapbooking 7 years ago and in 2009, a trip to a local scrapbook store inspired me to create Mini albums. I later moved on stylistically to prefer 12×12 layouts and am now absolutely in love with Project Life since 2013.
Since then, I have tried the 12”x12″, 6”x8” as well as the 6”x12″ Project Life albums. I love digital journaling cards very much and absolutely love using them in my Project Life. Creating projects like Week In The Life and Midori Traveler’s Notebook are my absolute favorites. As a frequent traveler, I always document my travel experiences in a Midori Notebook or a 6”x8” album. I also really enjoy planners – both spiral and ring bound.
My style has evolved through my years as a scrapbooker. At first starting out with being obsessed with pretty papers and the chunky 12”x12” layouts. I was all about products and photo until I started talking many story-telling classes online. These have influenced and evolved my motto in scrapbooking and memory keeping. Being overwhelmed with products and the organisation of them in 2015, I have since came over to the dark side 🙂 (the hybrid world)
As I progress to see the big picture of memory keeping, I journaled more and attempts to tell more stories. Albeit being one of the more laborious tasks, journaling and connecting life stories together has become my absolute MOST favourite part of scrapbooking now, especially when I flip back to my projects. I am very please with my progress in Project Life and other memory keeping projects.
I used the products from Fireside bundle in this week’s Project Life Spread. I love that the colors of the papers and journaling cards matches so well with the colors of my photos ! Here is a look at the left and the right page
