More sneak peeks

I have been creating up a storm all week!

Preparing for classes, creating for blog comps and making birthday cards!

Let me give you the run down!

Tonight we are celebrating the 8th Birthday of the lovely Miss Tayah - beautiful daughter of a very dear friend Jo - I created this card using stamps from The Greeting Farm, Copics and American Crafts papers - see a little Imaginarium Designs too?

Next Thursday night I am teaching this page for the Scrapping the Girls class {$15 class + $15 kit title extra}

Then Saturday 21st, I'll be doing my Colour Room Page at 1.30pm - I love this page - perfect for young or old or men or women

Monday night {23rd} is the next Book of Me class - this month we are doing 2 single pages as for some this will be their last page :(
The two topics are :-
What makes you Proud ... large journal area and I used a cropped 6x4' image for my photo
Jobs I've Had ... again, large journal area and I used a cropped 6x4' image for my photo

Then next Saturday will be a busy one!
The Summertime book will be in the morning at 10am
and the the Cuttlebug/Big Shot class will follow at 1.30pm - this month we are creating a wall canvas for your scrap area! YOU DO NOT NEED A CUTTLEBUG OR BIG SHOT FOR THIS CLASS!

And finally, on Tuesday May 31st at 10am, I'll be doing two pages in a class!

This is the page I created for the current Color Room Palette - make sure you head over and have a look because our beautiful Heather Jacob is the guest designer this week! (you can win some ID Chipboard too}

And inspired by the incredible Leann Pearce

Well that's it from me - I have a few more blog posts to do and a scrappy class with the AMAZING Louise Nelson to get ready for this morning!

Magnolia Card with Kathy

Monday May 16th at 7pm
Come and enjoy this delightful card.
This card will be using several new Magnolia Stamps that are easily adapted to other cards.
If you have done the two Copic Workshops and want to use these new skills, then you are more than welcome to bring in your markers but if not, Kathy will instruct on colouring the images in another easy way!
If a day class would be more suitable, just ask one of the friendly staff and Kathy will schedule one for the next quarter!
The class will be $15 plus a kit TBA.

Call the shop on 8277 1298 to book in now!

My Sketch class will be tomorrow night at 7pm.
Please bring in a variety of photos. I have used the following sizes...
Page 1 - Vertical 5x7' and a photo we cut into a 3x3' circle
Page 2 - 4 small 2.5x2.5' photos
Page 3 - Vertical 6x4' trimmed and a 3x3'

These sizes are not essential - we will adapt to suit!

See you then!

This month, our favourite Scrapbook Shop - Seriously Scrapbooking, is sponsoring the Once Upon A Sketch challenge blog.
Our very own Heather Jacob and Steph Devlin are on their Design Team and Jane is the Guest Designer for this month!

So I have created a page based on their sketch for this month.
Of course I used the awesome Imaginarium Designs chipboard! The branch is my own personal design! It's such a thrill to use my own designs on a page!
The sketch called for two photos but I printed one of the images onto acetate just to see how it looked and I had to include it on the page!

So why dont you have a go at this and upload it to your blog or if you like, email it to me and I will submit your entry for you! (

Have a great day and make sure you come back tomorrow as I have so SUPER EXCITING NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Louise Nelson's Classes!

Friday Late Night Scrap and Art Journaling Workshop :) :) :)

Hi Guys

For the Art Journaling Workshop being held during the next late night scrap [Friday the 13th - :S LOL] It will be an informal workshop within the context of the late night scrap spirit of creativity. I just wanted to have a chat with you all and discuss if there was any interest in an ongoing Art Journaling Workshop. As you can appreciate we will need to maintain numbers to cover costs etc,... but I will discuss this all on the night etc. Please feel free to bring what ever you like to use in the creation of your Journals, I will be bringing my kit and journal and I will be working on it during the night! I would love it if you bought yours and shared your creativity with me and the group! This isn't a formal class as such and the only fee that applies is that what you would normally pay for attending the late night scrap.

If you have any further questions please just drop me a comment in this post or email me at and Ill get back to you asap :)

And for Saturday Mornings Class.....

So what will you need to bring?: If you have the following it would be fab,..

  • Foam paint roller - medium [10-12 cms wide]

  • your favourite color acrylic paints and spray mists to match the color of your photo(s)

  • Any beads/buttons you have at home to match the above

  • Gloves if you dont like getting your hands dirty,..oh and an apron, you wont be able to get gesso off your clothes!! seriously!!!

The rest will be in your kit :)

  • The Crafters Workshop template we are using will be available for purchase :) as will the bling I use on the 'sample' layout.

I have included to sneak peeks of 'examples' of what can be achieved with the techniques I will demonstrate in the class, my 'sample' layout will be up in the shop on Saturday

Then on Saturday morning, I'll be teaching the page that I did for The Color Room last month. This is a great technique page and I had a lot of requests to teach this one! Please note that there will be a few minor alterations to this page and it's not for the beginner scrapper! The class is at 10am!
Also, head over to the Aussie Scrap Source Blog and check out the gorgeous work by our very own Louise Nelson and a double page by me!

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...
