Jot magazine 8 is Here!


There's a gorgeous, big, new issue of Jot magazine out this week. Just in time for Christmas. Kim Archer always pulls together a beautiful selection of layouts, Project Life spreads, hints and tips and this one has all of that combined with lots of festive cheer!

You can click here to find Jot 8 *

You can find me on page twelve with the second part of my Scrapbooking Bucket List. Go on, try something you've never done before! This is the page I made following one of the prompts:


Sian Fair for Jot Magazine

A "right in the moment", just now layout using a photo from Me On Monday. Some of the Jot Girls took up the Bucket List challenge (which feels like a real privilege because they are wonderful scrapbookers, all of them) and their pages are in there to enjoy, too..


...along with lots of Christmas album ideas, some very cute tags to download and an inspiring gallery.


Check it out!

Before I go today I wanted to remind you that * Christmas Club * is back this Sunday. Come, bring your Christmassy post and get festive. We'd love to hear any little Christmas story you've been hoping to record, or even some seasonal tips, or your favourite festive photo. Or you can start to write and see where it takes you . "At Christmas we..." All contributions very welcome. See you there?

Hi Sian, great layout and such a good idea to record what is just a tiny part of your life. If I took selfies as good as yours I'd do something similar. Love the glasses embellishment :) Thanks for sharing.

Well done with the Jot gig!!! I have this odd relationship with doilies - LOOOVe them on pages...but don't often remember to use them. Every time I see them used like this, I get excited to do so. Then forget!!! And that world flair. YUM!!! Off to check out the Christmas thing now...

Wonderful in the moment page - you had me smiling about the gray roots and pondering the blogger question as well.

Gail said...

That's a great looking layout Sian, thanks for the reminder about Jot. I'll be heading over to check it out. Thinking about my post for Sunday - I even went back to check out ones I'd shared the first go around to make sure I don't share them again. :)

A beautiful LO. I love how the typed journaling is such an important part of the design.

Sandra said...

The design of this layout is amazing, but what's fabulous is that even with a great design, you've managed to make the journalling really stand out. Stunning

It's past time I was in bed so I will be looking at the Jot magazine tomorrow. I love your page as always.... black and white stripes? I didn't plan it but they have become my frequent wear. People could be mistaken for me never changing my top but I do have a number of them! LOL
I have been one of the absent bloggers. Goodness where time goes! Hoping to do some catch up with posting and visiting :) xx

Jo said...

Great layout, I'll definitely have a look at Jot. I'm looking forward to Sunday :)

Melissa said...

A lovely right now page! I'll have to download the new magazines when I get back home in a few days.

Information overload!!! The only problem I have with Jot is that there is so much to take in and I haven't finished the last one yet!
As for At Christmas we... I have a story ready

Karen said...

It's a great layout, and I love the journaling. Jot tends to sit on my desktop. I'm pretty comfortable with technology, but I've never quite adjusted to reading magazines on the computer. Maybe if I put it on my iPad . . .

it's been really fun scrapbooking again, i had almost forgotten ;)
