CHA Winter Sneak Peaks

Hey ladies, just wanted to share with you my picks for CHA which is currently showing in Anaheim, LA. For those of you who haven't heard of CHA, it stands for the Craft and Hobby Association and CHA is held twice a year in the States. It is a HUGE scrapbooking trade show, where all the new Scrapbooking Releases are exhibited, ready for pre-order.

2010 looks like another fantastic year for vintage and there are signs of lots of bunting, handmade items available.

So here are my picks for this CHA. I am hoping to use some if not all of these lines during the next 6 months until the next CHA in Las Vegas.

Sassafras Lass - Nerdy Bird

Websters Pages - Embellishments
and Paper ......

K &Co....
Prima - well going to have to save that for another post ..... but here are some quick favs.

Well Im hoping and praying that Jane gets most of this yummy product in so you can treat yourself with the best there is on offer from CHA.

Hope you enjoyed the Sneak Peaks ......... I will be posting the product that I will be using on my album class in the next couple of days.

Book Of Me Update

For those of you who are doing my "Book Of Me" class at the moment, I have reshuffled my next page............... The theme will remain the same as will the layout but the size of the photos I have adjusted ever so slightly......... if you can make them 4cm squared, it would look better! I know it's not much but it will affect the over all look! :)

So for the next class, be sure to take some photographs of things around your house that makes it your HOME. Think items, fav bits of furniture, piles of laundry...... the bits that make it Home! Print approx 15-18 photos in BLACK & WHITE at 4cm squared!

See you on Feb 15th at 7pm!

Morning ladies

Just a reminder that I still have 3 kits available for my Blue Awnings Clock this Saturday at 1.30pm.

This will be the last time I do this class.

Also, here is a sneak peek of the Scrap The Boys page for Feb 4th at 7pm.
You're gonna LOVE it!


Thursday, January 21, 2010

Hey ladies, I have had girls come up to me and want to do various layouts of mine from last year, and of course it's impossible to try and fit repeat classes in for all of them.

Thursday 28th January at 7pm
So what we have decided to do, is have one class where you can re-create your favourite layout that you missed last year. I will be there going from lady to lady giving instruction and directions for what is next. Obviously you need to have a little initiative, because I won't always be available to have 1 on 1 time with you. You can go at your own pace, and at the end of the class you can go home with that layout you wanted.

So far these layouts have been booked in to create:

Be YouMagical Wishes
Love is the Beauty
Postcards from Paris Canvas
Postcards from Paris Page
When you book in, please advise on of our friendly staff which layout you would like to do so we can have the kit all ready for you!

Look forward to seeing you then

K&Co has arrived!

Oh Wow, our K&Co has arrived and it's amazing. I have fallen in love with the blossomwood range. It has deep rich colours and looks like it's been painted by hand onto canvas. I just love it and will be using it for my 7Gypsies Artist Printer Tray, along with all the embelishments to match. The new Elegance Range is perfect for weddings. It is black and a creamy white with teal. The paper pads are just beautiful. We also got some of the new K&Co 12x24 inch print paper pads for the Cricut. With this order came all our Martha Stewart punches so as of today we have a lot to choose from. From Basic Grey we have received our Origins Range of Embelishments and Papers. I have just placed a large order with Prima of all their new releases. At this stage I am not sure when it will be here but will let you know. Their new paper ranges are just delightful and the flowers, well you know Prima, it just gets better and better. I have also done a pre-order for Graphic 45, the wholesaler is unsure of its arrivel in Australia, but again I will let you know when it arrives. I am starting the artist tray tomorrow so I will post a sneak peak next week.
Thanks for looking.
PS As I type the courier has just dropped of all our new Cuttlebug Embossing Folders.  15 new designs and all delightful. I will add some photos to tempt. Those of you who pre-orderd, they are ready to be picked up.

New Range from K&Company

Hi Everyone
Hope you’re all staying cool!! For those of you looking at our blog from Interstate it was 41 degrees today in Adelaide and will be 43 degrees tomorrow. It’s hard to believe that on the other side of the world its -40 in some countries in Europe. Would love a cold breeze from them to drift over us tomorrow. Thought I would share some photo's of one of the new ranges arriving next week from K&Company (if customs don't hold it up). It's called Blossomwood.

The Colours are just beautiful. The borders look lovely and the diecuts come with clear overlays as well. We have ordered a large range of of stickers, embelishments pads and more. Also arriving is a new wedding line, which I can't wait to see. We have a daughter getting married in just three weeks time and I have been waiting for a new wedding line for a while. Being K&Company I know it will be perfect. With CHA in just two weeks time I will be sharing some of the  new lines I will be ordering with you as soon as I can get images.
thanks for looking

Morning Ladies!

Thought I would pop in with a sneak peek of the Cuttlebug Class on Saturday January 30th at 1.30pm.
We will be making a minimum of 4 cards - a male and female Birthday and a male and female Sympathy.
All 4 designs are interchangable and you will be choosing your own papers for this class!

Look forward to seeing you then!
