THIS IS HOME NOW

I'm taking Ali Edwards' online class at Big Picture Classes called Hello Story. It's only been one week, but so far I'm loving the content. I feel like I'm in a good place with the creative (and fun!) side of scrapbooking, but I really want more stories about my family, my life, and myself in my albums. Week one was about timelines, which is a really good place to start to get some facts onto pages. I made a few layouts this week inspired by that theme, and here's one of my favorites, about all the places I've lived in since I was 20. I moved quite a lot (few cities, two countries), until a year ago, when we bought a house (it's really a dream house...) of our own in Austria, so hopefully no more moving for many many years...


I started with that strip of wood-like patterned paper from the Composition & Color collection by Alison Kreft for Webster's Pages. I loved how it looked, and I thought it fit the subject of the page. I added some Dear Lizzy papers, from 5th&Frolic and that cute yellow paper from MME.



The embellishments are a mix of 5th&Frolic, that cute frame from The Pier by Crate, a circle die cut from Yes, Please by Amy Tangerine and some buttons and brads from my stash.


Thanks for visiting!

  5. Aha, I was right!! I came across your channel on YouTube this evening as a recommendation.....and there was something about your name, Irit, that I thought I recognized, and sure enough, after following you to your blog site, I see Hebrew writing!! Shalom!! Although I am born and raised in USA, my husband is from Haifa, Israel, and talks of his homeland often. The truth is, however, as much as I love your name (my husband, Mica, has a friend with the same name), I am especially fond of your beautiful scrap booking!! I will definitely be subscribing! I love this hobby so much, and I truly enjoy seeing others' work, and how it came about. So happy to discover you!
