Scarp-a-lope class

The first scheduled scrap-a-lope class took place on Friday night, and I really enjoyed showing the ladies how to make this beautiful ready-to-post scrapbook. Tegan was only little when this photo was taken, she was a cutie, hey?

As you can see Elisa and Justine loved their scrap-a-lope so much they decided to stay later and make another version with some of their left over kit. Thanks for proving the instructions worked girls!

If you would like to schedule your own scrap-a-lope class, book now before the end of November when I will no longer be able to purchase the Ski Slope paper; it is one of the lovely items from the Spring mini Catalogue that is only available until 30th November!

Christmas charity card making events

Please contact me to find out how you can attend this fun event, I will be attending the Victoria Point, Carina Leagues Club and Redlands Sporting Club venues this year.

Tri-fold cards

I finally managed to get around to making these gorgeous tri-fold cards that are popular at the moment. The bottom one was my first attempt, and is OK considering I only used scraps of paper, not really the pieces I wanted! (Didn't want to use the new pack until I knew what I was doing!). The first image shows a different look altogether, which I much prefer, but then anything using the Urban series of DSP is always great I think! I created the background pattern using 'Fifth Avenue Floral' and the one-sheet wonder technique. For those of you keen to know the measurements, the card is 6 x 12 inches, scored at 2, 4, 8 and 10 inches, then turned 90 degrees and cut from the scored line at 2 inches to the scored line at 10 inches, at 1 and a half inches in from the edge. Then you can go to town decorating the card to suit your occassion. Hope you like them!
'Fifth Avenue Floral' stamp set, grey corduroy buttons, Flower Fusion felt flowers, Blooms die cut flowers, 'Urban Oasis' DSP, Kiwi Kiss striped ribbon.

'Washington Apple' DSP, Felt and die cut flowers, flower designer brads, scallop circle punch.

"Please take our photo, Mum, we're not fighting!"

The two monkeys had a rare sisterly moment this week, and wanted it photographed to show that they can get along sometimes... if only there were more of these moments!

Fathers' Day 2009

Fathers' Day was not spent in the usual manner this year, instead we went to a Christening! Our neighbours little boy Alexander had his big day over at 8 Mile Plains, and we were invited to help celebrate which was nice. Mike's fathers' day was still remembered, and the girls made him cards (at school I'm ashamed to say, I was too busy this week to help them...) while I made this matching scrap page and card. I struggled to find a photo of him and the two girls together where everyone has their eyes open(!) hence the two separate photos. The 'D' image comes from 'Greetings Eight', and the DSP is 'Urban Garden'
