Adventures and classes

I am off to Melbourne for a few days for an exciting trip to the Paperific Expo. I am sure to have heaps of photos and stories and new inspired ideas when I get back, which means lots of blogging.

For those not aware, I will be teaching some card and layout classes at the Adelaide Kaisercraft outlet store at 87 Unley rd, Parkside mid October and early November. For the October class I will be focusing on using older collections to create some dynamic but simple masculine cards. Spaces are limited so if you are intersted please call (08) 83579901 to book your spot.  I will give more details about my November class closer to the date.

For now I am off to catch my flight to Melbourne and plan of having heaps of fun. Be sure to keep and eye on my Facebook Page for on the go updates.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting.

Velvet Ensemble card

A friend ask me to create a birthday card for his partner and well this is what I came up with on Monday night.
I am very please with the out come. Everything is from Kaisercraft. Velvet Ensemble Collection for the papers and labels and some of the Timeless Collectables for the butterflies. The feathers are not a Kaisercraft product but I was able to find a pack sitting in one of the sale bins at Kaisercraft Adelaide.

Butterflies, Stars and Pretties

The last week I have managed to find time to make some thing and be creative.

First up is a butterfly from Kaisercraft's Beyond the Page projects, well really it is a left over bit from one of the BTP projects that was being thrown out at work.

I said I would get a picture taken of the Star Fold card from last week opened. I really like this card and think it is a great idea for Christmas card as it can be added to the tree.

This weeks card class was a multi fold card. I am stil trying to get through my Sween Nothings paper pad so I was using that and some of the collectables. The card turned out very pretty for me.

Blossoms 2012

Well it is that time of year again, when all the blossom trees start to bloom.
There are more photos from this shoot on my flilckr account

Thursday class: Star fold card

Due to work commitments I have started to go to my card making classes on Thursday mornings. Last weeks card was a bit of fun, great for Christmas card, as they can double as tree ornaments. This class I did make a Christmas styled one, but just went through some of what papers I had lefts over. I will post up another photo of the card opened up, showing the star fold.

I do miss the group from Friday Mornings but do like the group on Thursday mornings.

MORE scrapbooking

So I have been a busy girl on the weekend. Here are the fruits of my creative labor.

This was a double page layout I did for My Monday Night scrapbooking class

This would have to be my favorite layout of ALL my work, and not because it is a photo of my self. It was a difficult layout to start but once I had the right elements for the layout it all seemed to flow and comes together VERY well

More of my scrapbook Sundays

So here are some photos of my newer pages. Most of these were done last Sunday.

Before I left Perth in 2010 I did a couple photo shoots with the wonderful Peter Bowdidge
I went back to visit Perth in 2011 and we did another photoshoot. These pages are in chronological.

I have also started to go through all my pictures of cats that I have taken for the last few years and never actually printed out, and will start working on layouts and pages for them.
This one is of Crystal, I took these photos back in 2000 back when I had a film camera.

Scrapbook Sundays

I have bit a little preoccupied with my studies lately and have neglected my blogging. I have taken break from my book learning to do some creative stuff at well, which I find important to keep my sanity. For the last 4 weeks a friend and I have spent every Sunday from about 9 am through to 10 or 11 pm crafting, while we go through about 5 or 6 movies in that time.I first session saw us watching a lot of post apocalyptic films, which is ALWAYS fun I have been catching up of scrapbooking many of the photos I have accumulated over the years and done nothing with and the friend is putting together a paper crafted Pulse Rifle replica from "Alien". By the end of my study week I am very much looking forward to my crafting Sundays.

The first weekend I completed some layouts I have started in my Monday Night scrapbooking classes with Helen Clifton

I then started to go through my collection of photos of the rest of my belly dance costumes I have made.
