Good evening everyone. Hope you’re having a great weekend. It’s been a beautiful sunny day here in Victoria.
Welcome to my first post as a member of the Design Team here at Purple Pumpkin. Can I first say I am absolutely thrilled to be here I have long used and loved Purple Pumpkin products on my layouts.
This first post is a bit of an introduction to me.
My name is Judith Armstrong. I live in country Victoria with my husband Robert and my 2 teenage children (15 and 14) and assorted pets (read rabbit and 2 semi feral cats). At present I’m a stay at home mum who works part-time from home.
I have been scrapbooking for over 6 years now (where has the time gone). My daughter originally started scrapping first when she went to classes at our local scrapbook shop. At first I wasn’t sure about it but then thought it would be good for scrapping some of my old family photos. Then I discovered the online world of scrapping and I was away. And as they say the rest is history. I became addicted and must admit I haven’t scrapped too many of those old family photos. I am now lucky enough to have my own scrapbooking room, with ever expanding sets of shelves and cupboards to house my rather large scrapping hoard.
I’m not sure I have a particular style. I tend to choose the style to go with the photo/s, whether that is clean and simple or shabby chic or whatever. However, I love using handmade products and at least one normally makes it way onto my layouts. You can find my blog here.
I’ve had quite a few guest designer spots and one full design team position many years ago. I’ve been lucky enough to be published quite a few times in Scrapbooking Memories.
Besides scrapping, I’m interested in genealogy, gardening and photography.
I’m looking forward to time here over the next six months. In the meantime here are 3 of my favourite layouts that I’ve done in the past 12 months containing some wonderful Purple Pumpkin products.
In Another accident I have used a yellow spotty button and vinyl yellow star round.
In Big Blow I have used a red spotty button and XL dark blue star button. These large starry button are one of my favourites at the moment.
Finally, in this layout I have an XL orange star button, orange tickets and dark blue star washi tape.
Well that's it from me for now. I look forward to sharing more of my work over the next six months.
