Christmas mood

Christmas mood is officially on!  This layout shows me wearing Santa’s hat at work 😀 I work in retail, so Christmas for me begins at the beginning of November, but this year I couldn’t really feel it until last week! For example I usually do my Christmas shopping in October (to avoid the hysterical crowd) but this year I only started last week (and I avoided the crowd anyway by buying everything online)! For the layout I’ve used paper from Doodlebug’s Santa Express collection!It begins It begins - det2 It begins - det4 It begins - det3 It begins - det1

The Love Bus

I’ve seen this bus many times around the city, but it was always moving and I was so curious to know what was it, if it was some publicity for some brand or just someone particularly eccentric. Then last month it was parked in piazza Cordusio, it was open and I finally found out what was it: there was a band inside playing and singing! It was so fun! For the layout I’ve used the Stitched collection by Amy Tangerine plus some of Shimelle’s die cuts.52lovebus 52lovebusdet2 52lovebusdet3 52lovebusdet1

The seasonal job

After a few years in which I’ve been doing different things, I have again a seasonal job in a shop for the Christmas season. We call the Christmas seasonal workers natalino/a, so I’m once again a natalina!  I’ve used the November Studio Calico kits.51natalina 51natalinadet2 51natalinadet1 51natalinadet3 51natalinadet4

Goodbye Autumn

Autumn is almost over and today I have this year last (but never say never) two project about my favourite season, a mini album and a 12×12 page. Both are made with the Friendly Forest collection by Doodlebug, a super colourful collection with all the little icons I love about autumn: leaves, acorns, cute little foxes and owls! The only missing things are the apples!

The layout is about reading in the park in autumn, when it’s not that cold yet, but it’s already less crowded and peaceful than in the warmer months. In this photo I’m reading ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’Reading in the park Reading in the park - det3 Reading in the park - det1 Reading in the park - det2 Reading in the park - det4


The mini album is about what I love the most about this season. The photo with the pumpkins is not mine, I found it on Google, and this is the link to its original source the other photos are of course mine.Autumn mini - cover Autumn mini - page1 Autumn mini - page2 Autumn mini - page3 Autumn mini - page4 Autumn mini - page5 Autumn mini - page6 Autumn mini - pcover


Gratitude Journal

I can’t believe I did, but I finally finished my November’s gratitude journal! I’ve used the gorgeous Sweater Weather collection by Simple Stories, I’ve cut some of the 12×12 pages in the shapes of different leaves and I mixed them with the 6×4, 3×4 and 4×4 cards included in the collection. With all the pages a different size and shape it looks a bit messy, but I like messy, so it’s ok! I took inspiration from my own pinterest board and one of the Studio Calico classes, Gratitude Documented by Shanna Noel. Here it is, if you click on the first image you can watch it as a slideshow!

Van Gogh exhibition

In November I attended the Van Gogh exhibition currently held at Palazzo Reale. I’ve made this layout to document it in my album. I’ve used the Amy Tangerine Stitched collection.

My big adventure

It’s already been two months since I’ve started this blog! I am very pleased with it: it’s looking exactly how I wanted to, and I have a handful of followers and also a handful of visits everyday 🙂 I’ve made a layout to celebrate it and I’m afraid I may have gone a little overboard with the gold! I’ve used paper, stickers and rub-ons from the Shimelle collection and stickers and vellum from Maggie Holmes Open Book collection by  49glitterwitch 49glitterwitchdet2 49gliterwitchdet1 49gliterwitchdet3 49glitterwitchdet4
