Anything But A Card - Crafty Cardmakers and More #144

Hi everyone I hope you are somewhere warm today as it is beyond freezing here!  A nice day to stay rugged up indoors and craft.  So our challenge this fortnight at Crafty Cardmakers and More is from Carole and is Anything But a Card.  My other passion apart from cardmaking is pocket scrapbooking (eg. Project Life etc).  I am way behind but I am slowly getting through 2014 and I am so happy that my thousands of pictures are now getting off the computer, phone, tablet etc and into albums that my kids love to look through.  I do my albums on a monthly basis with a few everyday things (like this one here) and special events throughout the month.  With five kids I don't have time for anything else and I'm still so far behind lol! Here is a layout I have just completed.

I have photographed it out of the pockets to reduce the glare but have used Design A pockets from Project Life.

Here is a close of up two of the cards.

Yes that is my crazy Cyclone Archie.

I have used mostly Simply Stories Daily Grind range on this but also some bits and pieces from my stash.  I am a huge Simple Stories fan and buy just about every range they release.  In saying that I also own several (cough, cough) Project Life kits as well.  The camera is from Corbett Creations (check them out on facebook amazing designs and she does custom).  I think the superstar wood piece is Studio Calico. I have typed the journaling on the card with my typewriter which I got for $10 love that thing!

Well that is it from me, make sure you duck on over the blog and check out all the other DT members creations and hope you can play along.

Love your layout - your kids look lovely!! I struggle to do physical scrapbooking - but do love doing it digitally with Craft Artist. Otherwise I'd never do any!! Thanks for providing such lovely inspiration for my Challenge!! Cxx
