Design Your LIfe layouts week 1-2

So, as well as crocheting my little hands off, I also signed up for Cathy Zielske's Design Your Life class over at Bigpicturescrapbooking. I like her teaching style, she's really quite amusing, and her simple style of linear scrapbooking does appeal to me. I'm doing it digi though - I've packed away my paper scrapbooking stuff 'til we sell the house, and the class comes with all the digi templates needed to complete the assignments (3 a week). And let's face it. I barely manage one layout a week normally, so 3 would be most definitely pushing it!

My pages are very simple, I intend to gussy them up before I get them printed all at once, here: 12x12 LOs printed at 75p - bargain! I'll let you know what they're like once I've sent off the order.

First 2 weeks are all about balance and symmetry. All layouts use templates from the class by Cathy Zielske, and all paper is either from the freebies or the shop area of Shabby Princess.

What do you reckon to digiscrap? DO you want to try it/have you tried it? Do tell :)

Oh, and for those of you watching for more crochet squares from my gorgeous yarn... here you go. I'm planning on sewing them up as I go.

Great layouts, and your little one is so cute! Have bookmarked that 12x12 print off, thanks!

I've had a few things printed from that place, and they come out really nice. Your LOs (and blanket-lets) are lovely!
That said, at best I'm a hybrid scrapper... I like STUFF. Tactile, sticky pasty papery STUFF. Maybe if I can diminish the piles of stuff I'd feel less guilty about mixing it up more.
Your little girl is getting big!

Wow, yes that was some time ago. Glad that poor little homeless monkey now feels loved again.

Hey I'm loving your granny squares. That baby blanket is too lovely and good luck with the big one!!!

Thanks for letting me know about the monkey. xx
