Christmas Details

I have been able to play a little over the last couple of days, and here is what I have created:
Pages made from a cardboard box and decorated with Pink Paislees 'Mistletoe & Co' range.

And the pages inside:

Love this photo of Sam writing his letter.

I hope you have found some quiet time to scrap a little.

Scrapbooking pages to share

Here are a couple of the pages I completed while away last month.

Love these papers from the Monstrosities range by Sassafrass Lass

And this ribbon by SU is to die for (no longer available any more, boo hoo) Thanks to my gorgeous friend Georgina, I have a new roll to play with. :)

I love Teresa Collins product. These pages were so fun because it is hard to find tasteful sporting papers. I have three boys who love sport, I NEED tasteful sporting papers!!!

And I just love this quote by Muhammad Ali.

And I love this photo. It evokes lots of questions and emotions for me.

What is he thinking as he waits to go in for his first batting of the season?
Is he nervous?
Will he survive?
He has grown so much.
How do I protect him?

Christmas Preparation

Am busy wrapping Christmas pressies for under our tree. Want to see what I have been putting them in?

These are the bags that we use up at the store (Pages 2 Scrap) to put your purchases in. How cute do they look all dressed up? They are great quality bags and look fabulous for presents. And they are FREE with purchase :)

And here is a photo I took this morning of my little one (who is getting so big!!).
Enjoy your weekend.

Me @ 37

Ah well, another birthday over and done with. I had a lovey day with a visit to my favourite shop to have my Mum spoil me with one of these:

Then off to lunch with Mum, the Boys and Georgina. Heaps of shopping done and now all finished for Christmas and back home to dinner with Mum, Boys, In-Laws, Chef Hubby and this for dessert

How cute is this cake? My Mum is so special.

Just wanted to share my new class samples with you. I have been madly planning Christmas parties, birthdays and between all that I have been trying to get some creating in.

I decided to use it to showcase our home for something a little bit different.

Next is my sample for the alcohol ink class. This class is on Friday 11th but is fully booked. So I have scheduled another class for Wednesday 13th January at 7pm. Again, call the store on 1300 664 228 if you would like to book in.

See the detail on the acetate?

And the gorgeous polished stone effect you can create?

Monday, November 16, 2009


Been busy creating and having a blast with my scrapbooking. I love it when it's not a challenge. Here I have used glimmer mist on the background and I have used the new Kaiser range called Rewind.

I love how everything co-ordinates, from the papers to the stamps to the embellishments.
I even used the tag from the packaging on this layout.
And the name is so appropriate for my page. I have written to Samuel that I am not ready for him to grow up yet :)

Thanks for stopping by, make sure you find some time to be creative this week.

Classes at Tuggerah

Well, my holiday is nearly over and it's almost time to get back to what I love. (Not that I haven't loved laying by the pool in the sun)

My next classes at Pages 2 Scrap are the Christmas Advent Calendar Class which has been really popular. We have added an extra class due to the first two classes being booked out. So if you are free on Saturday 14th November at 2pm and want to make the advent calendar below, then phone the shop to book in now (there are only a few spots left) 1300 664 228. I would love to have you there.

This is a lovely keepsake to use every year, or it would make a great present for someone special.

Next class is the Glimmer Mist class on Monday. I am so excited to be teaching this class. Glimmer Mist is so much fun to play with and we will be creating a page similar to this:
So if you are free on Monday at 10am till 12pm and want to learn some new techniques for your scrapbooking, then call the store to book in. Phone 1300 664 228

I can't wait to get back into creating some new things to share with you. Unfortunately I haven't found any stores to stock up on supplies here in Cairns, but you know what? I know that Tracey at Pages 2 Scrap has been buying up big and I can't wait to get back there and get my hands on some of it (and you all should know how much I like their membership deal - 20% off all purchases!!! Yep, how good is that???? Ask them about it). And some news to share that I am really excited about too. From next week I will be working in the store every Monday between 9.30am and 2.30pm. Eeeeeeek! What a job!!!! Can't wait to start, come in and see me if you can.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to book in if you want to join in the class fun above.
