November Workshop

This month we used the utterly gorgeous "Urban Prairie" range by Basic Grey. So pretty! New techniques included giving shape and dimension to paper embellishments, and making our own tiny letter tiles.
I did "Green Valley Farm" during the workshop to demonstrate on.
"Can We Bwing the Stwoller?" is my original example.
The ladies did a fantastic job....see for yourself!
Tracy, Gloria & Jane Rhonda, Chris, Lee and Lisa
Di and Meleah
Deb, Katrina & Lisa
And sorry....my left-over packs were all sold even before I got to put it up here!
Such a beautiful day here today....I should be doing laundry, but my mind keeps wandering to the lovely goodies that have just arrived from Cut & Paste! The pizza box is sitting on my dining table, beckoning loudly. Wicked pizza box!

33 Layouts in 34 Days!

Octoberfest is over, and I've done each and every layout! 33 to be exact, including the bonus ones that Jen threw in. Finished the last one yesterday. YAY!
I'm really happy with all of them, plus have picked up heaps of tips and techniques along the way.
Another similar thing is being planned for Feb next year, so keep an eye on Jen's Blog to find out more. I thoroughly recommend it!
Here are my final creations to show you:
DAY 26
In this LO we had to journal a letter to a loved one.
DAY 27
This one's about the way each birthday comes around MUCH too fast these days!
DAY 28
A double page using another of Jen's downloadable Doodle Sheets.
DAY 29
Scrap a childhood memory.
DAY 30
"Piled-on" collage technique. DAY 31
Mad and messy with finger-painting!
Thanks for coming with me on my month-long scrap fest!

October Class In A Box

The new Class-in-a-Box is now ready.
This month it's all about making your own cute embellishments - a fun, cost-saving technique to learn. A pattern-sheet is included for you to trace, so no hand drawing is required (unless of course you want to...!)
The kit includes everything you need to recreate my layout, except chipboard lettering.
Leave a comment, or email me to grab one.
Cost is $A20 (includes postage within Australia).
And as promised, here are some shots of the ladies at my Wednesday class....

11, 12 & 14

Almost halfway through OCTOBERFEST!!! Here's my progres:
Number 10 - I'm waiting on some papers to arrive that I ordered especially for it.
Number 13 - uses a 12 x 8 photo and I'm still figuring out how to get one printed that size!
Number 15 - I planned on doing today, but with my own scrap class to prepare for tonight, I got a bit waylaid!
So here are the ones I did manage to get done in the last 5 days.....
DAY 11
DAY 12
DAY 14

I'm actually enjoying the 8.5 x 11 size (something I've never tackled previously - cos I didn't want to go buying new albums...). It's so easy to fill the space, and a normal 6 x 4 photo appears much bigger, if you know what I mean! So all the class layouts this size will be about my middle daughter Bethany and her first year of school - what better excuse to purchase a new album?!

Thanks to everyone who has left lovely comments for me about my Octoberfest pages.....means a lot.

In the next day or so I'll be sharing my October Gum Flat class, as well as a new Class-in-a-Box. See you then!

The First Five

Here's what I've been up to this week.... Trying to keep up with Octoberfest - a month long online class by Jen Hall. Yeah, I know, it's the 9th and I've only done 5 pages.......but with a house full of visitors for the last week and a busy long weekend at the Gum Flat 125th Birthday celebrations I haven't exactly had all the time in the world! But - it's been FABULOUS! Jen's classes are so easy to follow, and to adapt to your own style and the stash you have on hand. I'm loving all the new inspiration. Here's my layouts, in day order....
