Scrappin Around

I'm so excited about the Scrap With V Retreat in Qld coming this weekend. In the last few weeks my health was up and down so I am glad I'm getting better so I can go. It will be a great relaxing time to spend with friends that I've made online. It's a shame for those that are unable to make it as its going to be an awesome time.

I've kick started my cardmaking again combined with stamping and really enjoying it again as its just relaxing. I should take more pictures of my cards. Haven't scrapped for a few months and I'm slowly getting into the mood to do it again. I plan to do a Stampin Up workshop there which will incorporate various techniques of stamping and making 3 cards and a gift box so it should be great fun.

I've been getting a lot of comments on the sketches I've put up so I'll put up some more.

Not all of them are mine only some are. Others are from friends or sketches from sites I find very inspiring and really get you out of the comfort zone to try something different. Here are 2 Layout Sketches.

And here are two Card Sketches. The good thing about sketches is they can be used for inspiration for both paper and digital scrapping.

A lot of my inspiration comes from sketches and then I usually put my own twist on it, something different. At the moment I really enjoy opals using them on chipboard and stamping onto them to make a texture imprint on them. Very Effective.

Catching Up!

Yay I'm 13 weeks and 2 days and so glad that morning sickness is easing off. But a jolly cold has knocked me for a six. I'm getting a little excited now and have my NTscan this Thursday. And my Gender scan on 4th July. I will be in full scale baby prep after that. Thinking of how I can do the room up to get it ready. The boys are getting excited and impatient as when I go for scans at the hospital they think I'll be taking home the baby then.

We are also getting ready for our Big Birthday 30th Bash at our place. DH and I turn 30 a month apart so thought we'd combine it. So that should be good. I hope I'm better by then. Bugger about the alcohol for me, but that's ok I'm sure I'll survive without.

Scrap with V Retreat is coming up in less than 2 weeks so I'm excited about that too. So again I hope I'm better as I hate being so sick. But maybe its the relaxation I need right now. Its in Qld so its going to be a blast. I'm doing a Stampin Up! Class there too so I am just looking forward to it all right now. Mum is coming with me this time as last time she did all the catering in Adelaide and was exhausted after it. So this time she will come and relax with me and have fun too.

Boys have been fairly good. Mitch's Asthma is starting to play up as it gets colder but is doing alright. Hayden is loving school as usual and has improved a lot with his reading. Mitch is begging to go to Kindy and can't wait. He'll start next term.
Hayden is loving Joey Scouts aswell - tomorrow they are doing a night hike around the hall so he'll like that.

Card Making Classes

I’m looking at organising a card class in early June.
I normally do on weekends to make it easier on most and also gives you more time creating.
I will let you know dates and times very soon just waiting for the location to give me the ok.

Classes vary depending what the class is about re – cards, Scrapbooking and the materials used.
First class will consist of making 3 cards and a little gift. All of which you make and take home with you.
In this class you’ll be learning a few techniques to get you started.
After the class there will be an opportunity to order any materials you’d like to start you on your way.
There will be a fee of $15 which will cover the materials used and the hire of the location.
Due to the popularity of these classes I’ve had to move location from my own home to a larger location.
I will let you know when the date is set.

Look forward to seeing you there.
And you are welcome to bring a few friends just let me know how many so I have enough seating.

Email me if you are interested in attending.
