It's the Easter holidays - yay, so I have been busy creating and 'arting'. I have two completely different things to show you today, a junk journal I am working on and a quick 5 minute art journal / creative journal page, that shows you that creating art doesn't need to be a big task.
I love Instagram and looking through my photos. I thought it would be such a nice idea to keep these photos forever in an actual journal. Here I show you how to make a beautiful Instagram Photo Album/creative journal to store all of your Instagram photos. It's perfect for memory keeping and saving your memories in a photo book and much nicer than a regular photo album.
Phew, I love a bit of memory keeping and have finally completed my Plannercon Europe Creative journal and my Summer adventures travelogue. I have been so inspired by Anna Brims online course on creating an 'Adventure Journal', I can highly recommend it. I will talk you through the basics of the course and how I got started on my Adventure journeys, right through to the finished product including my full creative journal flip throughs.
Oooo 2 more weeks till Christmas, who's excited? Here I'm sharing my updated flip through of my Christmas Planner in particular the December Daily pages. I have done up to day 8 so thought I would share a small planner peek of my memory keeping and creative journal pages and spreads so far.

Hello everyone. Wow, November is here and Bonfire Night has been and gone...crazy! Today I am creating a Bonfire Night themed memory keeping page in my creative journal. I have used the October collage sheets and printables from Mrs Brimbles Patreon page and wow we were spoiled for choice with last months goodies. As part of the layout, I have turned some of the printables in to die cut pieces.
Making Die Cuts for Ephemera
So excited to be starting a new feature on my blog - The Young Crafter. Today I am featuring a lovely young lady called Carys, who has a massive passion for scrapbooking. Have a look what she has been up to and how she started her scrapbook journey in her own words. View my Beginners Guide to Scrapbooking here.
Phew, I have finally fully completed my first Creative Journal / Smash book which I started over Easter in 2016. It has quite a lot of pages as it is in one of the Moleskine Notebooks. The end of the book has my Adventure Journaling Course pages that I have just completed from a course over at Mrs Brimbles I thoroughly enjoyed the course and hope that it is going to continue pushing my journaling forwards.

I'm not what you would call a 'scrapbooker', but I do love doing smash book pages. However I have recently got into paper crafts and creating scrapbook pages and layouts as a result of recent workshops at Michelle Mills' Craft Club and as part of National Scrapbook Day, which I really enjoyed. So have a read for a few tips for starting out scrapbooking and using your smash book ideas in your layouts.

Getting Started with a Scrapbook
Join me in my first 'Plan With Me' Creative Journaling process video as part of the Planner Girls Collective. Boy did it take some editing. At one point the file totally gave up and I had to start again from scratch.
I went to Ladies Day yesterday at Warwick racecourse. What a beautiful place Warwick is, never been before. The Castle and the town look so pretty. The video shows you step by step how I created the smash book style creative journaling page using the stunning ephemera I won in a RAK over at Fab Planner Print. The ephemera is gorgeous, a mixture of solid and vellum style, it really looks beautiful over the watercolour.
Check out Toni's group - Fab Planner Print Facebook Group and buy some of the ephemera for yourself over on her Etsy shop - Fab Planner Print on Etsy.
