Sand and Sea Suite

Good morning all,

Was a raining stormy day yesterday afternoon so managed to get a little scrapbooking done.  We had been away with some family and I couldn't wait to scrapbook our gorgeous granddaughter.  So here's the result.  I used the fantastic new Sand and Sea Suite and some dies from older sets but the background paper is from the Suite - how beautiful is that!  The title I however did on my Brother Scan N Cut.  Hope you like it.  You can purchase the items individually in the Sand and Sea Suite.  See page 40 of the new Mini Catalogue which can be viewed also here on my blog page.

  If you would like to do some scrapbooking, beginners or experienced, why not book into one of my scrapbooking classes.  Everything supplied.  Check out the classes and events here on my blog. Supplies are listed below this post and you can shop safely here through my 24/7 shop.  . 

Hope you have a great day

Hi all,

As you may know I hold special needs classes on a Thursday, two sessions one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  Today I only had one lady attend the lovely Naomi and her carer Janette.  Earlier in the week I had created a page for some travel photos (Athens) and thought that it would be a nice layout for Naomi to do.  So here she is with her finished effort.  She did such a great job.  A lovely photo of her having a yummy coffee so it was Cafe Au Yum we thought!!!

I have also attached the picture of my scrapbook page of Athens. 




Saturday 24th October was our Christmas card making afternoon and we had so much fun.  I have also attached some photos for you to see from that fun day.  Congratulations to our winners of the prizes during the day.  Jan won the door prize, Naomi one a prize, Chris won a prize and Sandi won a prize.  Love these events we always have so much fun.  Met some lovely new ladies, Jan and Lyn.  Hope to see you at some classes soon ladies.  I will be doing up a schedule for next year very soon and adding in some different types of classes, ie. Technique Classes, Embellishment making classes etc.  Here are the pics from the event.  If you see anything you would like and not sure what it is give me a call and ask and if you would like to order anything I can organise that for you as well.  Thanks for checking in today!!





  Look out for the November newsletter coming soon.  

Until next time, keep on Stampin



Well hello there everyone!

Just finally getting around to a blog post which I promised on Thursday night but we have had sick elderley family members who we have been attending to.  However this did not interfer at all with the fun we had on Thursday with my very special ladies who just love to create special scrapbooking pages to preserve their precious memories.   I created a page very late Wednesday night and was a bit tired but I think it all came together ok.  I wanted some bright colours and some textures for a change as the girls had just been doing simple layouts using DSP.  They are getting a bit more experienced so why not get a little more difficulty into the classes!  I cut triangles out of some of the beautiful new Playing with patterns DSP. The photo I did was of my father in law who is terminally ill in hospital and he is holding our youngest at a wedding which was about 30 years ago now!  I had been wanting to scrapbook this photo and thought it was very appropriate at this time.  So here is a picture of my page.

In the morning we had Caroline with her lovely carer Janette and Caroline decided to scrapbook a photo of her and Janette as they are best mates!  So here is Caroline with her page.

Then in the afternoon we had Naomi and her carer for the day Choe and also we had Kelly with her lovely carer Lesley.  Here are their pics.  



They all added their own little special designs and titles according to their picture and as usual we all had great fun.  

Until next time!

Keep on Stampin!

Beautiful World

Beautiful world card

Hi Everyone, Have had this gorgeous World of Good Suite since I first saw it in the 2020/21 Annual Catalogue and I had to have it as I have a lot of travel photos to scrap book! Well haven't touched it until today when I made this card. Just wanted to make an inspirational card that I could give to someone to make them feel good about themselves. Everything I needed was in the Suite which is a great way to purchase all the co-ordinating supplies. Check out the "Recipe" on how I made the card. Hope you like today's card. See you again soon and keep on Stampin.


Hi Everyone,

As you may well know by now, I run Special Needs classes normally on a Thursday unless otherwise arranged. Scrapbooking has proven to be the most popular and each of the girls now have their own albums which they bring along with them to add their special memoray pages to each week.  These classes are just so fulfilling for me and for the girls and we all have so much fun.  I have Caroline who comes in the morning with her lovely carer Janette.  Caroline did a layout using strips of DSP and some doillies and she had the most beautiful photo of some her family.  

In the afternoon Naomi and Kelly came with their carers Jo and Lesley respectively and they did a layout using some retired DSP and I printed out their titles on my Brother Scan N Cut.  Always such a great time.  Here are some pics of yesterday's classes.   It was such a lovely day weather wise, we had the class outside.  (All permissions have been given for photos).









Look forward to seeing you girls all next week for some more fun!!

Hello from Outback Australia

Outback card

We have our youngest son and his family travelling the outback at the moment and I have been wanting to make a card with an Outback theme. The new tree stencil was crying out to be used. So on Water colour paper I used Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Pumpkin Pie to create the vibrant sunset using just sponge daubers. You could get different effects depending on your colouring tools. I also used memento black to do the silhouette ground. For the trees I mixed memento ink droplets into white embossing paste to create the black trees. The simple hello sentiment is actually placed to cover an ink spot and it is from the Forever Fern Stamp set and have heat embossed in gold. We all make mistakes right! Mounted on a gold mat and placed on a black card - I was quite happy with this first attempt. But plan on having another go at it. Hope you like today's card
