Hey there everyone

My apologies - I have been a little lazy this week on updating the blog but here are a few tidbits for you!

My Scrap the Boys class went great last night and for those of you who ordered a kit, it will be under the counter for you on Monday. The page is on my blog for those who would like a look!

Tonight is Late Nite Scrap starting at 6pm until 10pm. Unfortunately I wont be there tonight as we have a week of birthdays and anniversaries but the ever amazing Sam will be there to assist you all.

Tomorrow morning is the first of our Guest Teachers for this quarter, Louise Nelson.

Here is a description of the class by Lou ...

Using the wonderful Autumn Leaves book "The Designing With Recipe Book' that is packed with Inspiration and which Jane is selling in the shop. I have started my series of classes with a lovely layout created by Cathy Blackstone based on 'recipe' which you will receive in your class kit. I have used a lovely range of patterned papers from Basic Grey from the Indian Summer range. This layout suites the use of multiple photos [check out the original in the shop] but if you would like to bring some photos to class it would suit black and white, sepia, a combination of both, and/or photos that are earthy colors. For the 'Male' version of this recipe I have done a simple mainstream copy of Cathy's layout. However, if you are feeling slightly adventurous I have also completed a Female version of the recipe, that is more freestyle in its approach but very simple and easy to follow. Once again I have used some glorious Basic Grey patterned papers, from the Lemonade and Origins ranges. They are the most gorgeous yellows and greens with a subtle dash of pink. For this layout design it would suit a single portrait or landscape photo 4.5" x 3.5".The class starts at 10am so make sure you bring your normal kit and some photos!
Lou is repeating this class on Thursday the 20th at 7pm if you cant make the Saturday Class.

Kathy's Card with a Difference is also another beautiful project planned for Monday May 10th at 7pm.

Steph is repeating her beautiful Printers Tray on Tuesday 11thSteph has two classes next Saturday - the Heart Stand in the morning & Steph's Page - Beautiful Page by Prima in the afternoon.
Jane will be teaching her beautiful Wedding Book Saturday as well from 10am.

On Saturday May 22nd, Jane will be teaching her Men's Graphic 45 page and I'll be doing a beautiful Female Graphic 45 page in the afternoon.

And finally, the amazing Kathie Link is Guest Teaching on Saturday May 29th.

Kathie will be making two single page layouts, suitable for boys or girls, featuring the October Afternoon Farm Fresh collection. Possible themes include farm animals, pets, gardening, fetes, outdoors. The layout pictured uses a 6x4inch photo (or two 3x4inch photos). The other layout uses two 4x6inch photos (and an optional third photo that you can crop into a circle).

All materials with the exception of the letter stickers shown in the sneak peek are included in the kit. Class participants should bring their standard scrapbooking kit.

So there is a lot happening as normal in the shop so pop in and say hi!

I'm off on holidays for the next 2 weeks so see you soon all happy and rested!

Book Of Me Class

Finally I have had the opportunity to complete the class for May and I thought I'd show the previous classes that we have done as well.

The Book Of Me class runs once a month and we are creating a 9x9 album about ourselves.
The first page is the simple title page.
The second class was about our home and the things we love in our home that make it special

The third class was about our most prized possession or the best gift we have received.

The fourth class was our favourite or "go-to" recipe.

And our class for May is our favourite things.

Next month will be "Things my Mother and/or Father taught me".
I probably wont get the time to get this page done before the next class as I have just had a massive card order come in and we are off to the Gold Coast on Monday for a family holiday but I'll certainly try!

Dont forget to email me your request for files if you need them for the May class. Like I mentioned, I'm heading away on Monday so make sure you email me by Sunday afternoon at the latest.


Got some free time this weekend?

Hello Everyone. I have a couple of great classes this weekend if you want to join me. Friday 26th April  Junk Journal Class 10am-2pm...
