New Graphic 45 Layouts Now on Line

 Hello Everyone

I am still here, and busy as ever. Isn't this year proving to be a very eventful one. So many things keep changing around us. Well done to those living in Victoria for getting their numbers down. It is very exciting to see some of our borders opening up. My daughter and two grandchildren hope to visit us in October. The family have yet to meet the youngest one and she has just turned one!

I have been using my time to get some projects made, instructions written and now have finally got them on our website at Seriously Scrapbooking, just click on the link, they are under New In Store.  I have 4 new double Graphic 45 layouts, one single layout and 2 project life style layouts. I am going to share the photos here. 

Wonderful Lazy Summer Days Double Layout.

 This is one I made using a selection of Graphic 45 papers. I made it  for Anna using photos from a cruise we went on in 2016. You will need to some fussy cutting for this layout and detail instructions are included. This kit includes papers, chipboards and even glitter starfish. There are more photos on the website. 

Bloom and Grow Double Layout.

I have made this double layout using papers from Graphic 45's Flutter collection. You need to love fussy cutting if you want to make this one. There is quite a bit to be done. I have included detailed instructions to help you work out what you need to cut. On the website there are a few extra photos so you can see all the detail on the layouts. I used photo of my grandchildren and changed them to black and white as the colours in the paper are very beautiful and my coloured photos didn't suit. 
There are more photos on the website. 

You Make Me Happy.

This is a very busy double layout with room for lots of photos. I have used it for a group of photos I had of two of my girls take a few years ago. There is lots of beautiful papers and heaps of chipboard included in this kit. There are more photo's on the website. 

Live for Today.


This is one of my favorite layouts to date. I have used some of my personal favorite Graphic 45 Papers. The kit includes papers, heaps of chipboard, charms and more. I have included an ink pad so you can ink some of the chipboard yourself. You will need to do some fussy cutting for this layout. There is the cutes hot air balloon charm included in your kit. I have used it for a collection of photos of Josh's holiday in America, but any male photos would work for this layout or even a group of Halloween photos due to the colours. There are more photos of this layout on the website. 

Life is Beautiful.

This is a single layout using Papers from Graphic 45's Lost in Paradise collection. There is a bit of fussy cutting for this layout.  I have included detailed instructions to help you work out what you need to cut. There is a matching Multi Pocket Project Life Style kit which uses the same collection of papers.  


Lost in Paradise. 


This is my largest multi pocket layout to date. It is three pages of different sized cards. You will need to do some fussy cutting and detailed photos are included to help you work out what to cut. It is a perfect set of cards for any tropical holiday eg, Bali, South Pacific or Queensland. You can leave them in the sleeves or spread them out and do even more layouts. The kit includes papers, cardstock, sleeves, cork word and shapes. Detailed instructions are included. There are more photos on the website. 

I Spy With My Little Eye. 


This is one of my favorite Multi Pocket layouts to date. It is very eclectic, with lots of different papers and embellishments from my secret stash.  I have used it for a group of photos from a holiday we had in Queensland at Water World, but it would work for any holiday or special occasion. Kit includes, papers, sleeves, tags, embellishments and detail instructions.  There are more photos on the website. 

I have been holding a couple of classes a month in my home. If you are interested then please contact me for more information on 08 8277 1298 or  0416053688. 

I am still able to help you with scrapbooking supplies from my home. You just need to ring and make a time. 

I am planning to hold an all day card workshop on a Saturday and the following Monday in October. You don't have to spend the whole day or just a couple of hours. More information to follow. I will post the date and some photos of the cards you will be making later on. Numbers able to attend are limited so if you are interested or want to book in, then contact me sooner rather than later. 

Well that's it for now. 

Hopefully things will start going back to some form of normal soon.

Thanks for stopping by

My Favorite Form of Scrapbooking.


Hello Everyone
Sorry for not posting before now, but I have been busy working on the instructions for my Graphic 45 Safari book. It is a huge project with over 80 double sided instructions so far.
Every now and then I need a break so I have been sorting out kits, finishing off kits and working on some new ones. I have a lovely new male single and two new double layouts which I have designed and written instructions for. I will be sharing them with you all next week. I am still needing to find a couple of photos for the pages to finish them for the photo of the finished pages. Once they are done, I will show them here and put them online at Seriously Scrapbooking's website.
I had also added 100's of papers, paints, inks and more to the website and have marked a lot of the products down. This is a work in process so you will need to check the website from time to time. I have added all my Graphic 45, Maja, Pion, Coco Vanilla, Simple Stories and Echo Park papers, printed chipboards, stickers, tags and ephemera packs. I will be added ribbons and flowers to the website this week. I also added a heap of mixed charm and cabochons packs as well. 
There is a new category called "New to the Website". This is where all the items I have in my home are added. "New in Store" is where I am adding new kits and stock as it arrives from my orders and is new to the website. There is also a "Sale" category although not everything on sale is in there yet.







This is one of my patchwork pieces frames. I have been making these for over 15 years now and I still love them. I sell them in small packs and you need 6-7 packs to create a large piece like the one above. You can purchase a frame from Ikea and use it to display your patchwork pieces. Mine has over 40 photos in it. 

Patchwork Pieces - Kit 9 Botanical Tea Time. 

 I have two new kits for you - kits 9 and 10. Kit 9 is made using Botanical Tea Time and Kit 10 is using Imagine.

                             Patchwork Pieces - Kit 10 Imagine.

In working on the new kits, I found and sorted out about 4 boxes of bits and pieces from my Patchwork Pieces kits from years ago. I have re-released some of my favorite kits from 2013-14. I do have a limited amount of these kits, so if you like them, then don't leave it too late as I will not be able to repeat them again.

  Patchwork Pieces - Kit 21 Mother Goose. 

  Patchwork Pieces - Kit 24 Couture.

  Patchwork Pieces - Kit 25 Sweet Sentiments.

 Patchwork Pieces - Kit 27 By The Sea.

 Patchwork Pieces - Kit 29 Botanical Tea Time. 
 Kits are $25 each, and come with detailed instructions and everything you need to create the 9 squares in each kit. Sometimes I need to swap a charm or ribbon but not very often. 
I do need to warn you that they are highly additive and once you start it is hard to stop. But they are the perfect way to display a lot of photos. I call my finished framed pieces - the "Where's Wally" of scrapbooking as every time you look at your frame, you find something different. I carefully choose the quotes and words, so all you need to do is find photos to suit. You will need to purchase squares for your photos or cut your own squares. 
This would be the perfect Convert 19 project - something to treasure and keep as a memento of the time our world stopped being crazy busy and slowed down for a while. 
So I hope everyone is well, following the guide lines and staying safe. 
I will be back next week with the layouts and some more updates on the website and sale. 
Thanks for stopping by
Hugs
Jane

Box of Memories All Day Workshop

This Saturday I will be holding an all day workshop, teaching one of my projects from the Brisbane Expo. It is my Box of Memories - and it is a very special project.

 It is a box that holds three divers and over 50 question cards which you or a family member can fill in. The questions come on a CD so you can print out more sets. I am going to give one set to my Mum to fill then, then fill in a set for me. I then plan to pass the box onto one of my daughters and get her to fill in a set then finally I am hoping my granddaughter will fill a set for herself.



There are even a couple of envelopes at the back to keep CDs of photos or ephemera in. You can add photos on cards as you need to. It is a great way to keep all your family history in one place and safe. 
The class is on Saturday 7th at 10am-4pm.  Cost of the workshop (lunch included) is $75.
Please ring me on 0416053688 or 0882771298.
