Dazzled flowers

A few months ago I bought a Scrapbook kit from M&M's Scrapbooking Adventures called Wonder.  This kit involved the most amazing tutorial using Dazzles / glitter Spritz.  It took me a while to find this product but OH it was worth it......  I've included the tutorial for everyone to try. Enjoy!

Scrapbook 'n Things kit Challenge

Lara from Scrapbook 'n Things came up with this marvelous idea to have a kit challenge on a monthly basis.  She will supply the kits at a 20% discount.  The kits are great value for money and have all the papers and embellishments needed to finish a page. 

The rules are also quite simple.  Use everything in the kit and use your own original design.  What's up for grabs - an American Crafts Cardstock pack valued at R285-00 + a gift voucher.  The gift voucher is made up as follows - for every kit sold, R10-00 will be donated to the gift voucher.  Lara will also decide from all the entries which page she would like to make as a kit and sell at Scrapbook 'n Things.  A percentage of these sales will go to the ladies whose page is chosen for this kit.

Unfortunately I can't put a picture of my layout on my blog in case anyone steals my ideas.  So watch this space - all will be revealed on 31 December 2011 when this challenge closes.

I got published in Scrapping & Kie

Lorna Marsh from Scrap Collections asked if I would design a page using their Christmas papers for an advert that she was doing in the Scrapping & Kie.  I did and my page "A child is born" was published as well as all the cards I made.  So if you're interested in buying a full kit with all the papers, embellishments and a full set of notes, email me on  The cost is for a kit is R130-00 + R35-00 for postage (if applicable).

2nd Scrapbook Fundraising Day

Thank you to all the ladies who attended our 1st Fundraising Scrap day for Brendan Bowen.   It was a huge success, however there is unfortunately still a shortfall in funds, and due to this we have decided to arrange another fun Scrapbooking Morning and hope you can all attend (or purchase kits).

You will create a double layout that has been specifically designed by Michelle van Wyk for this event.  Using KAISER craft new range of papers called HUNT & GATHER, this layout is perfect for those Bushveld, Holiday, Camping, Safari or even fishing photos.  Living in South Africa, we all have tons of photos that fall in these categories.  Our layout will include a pocket and flaps to hold up to 16 photos (or more !!)


This layout was designed by Sharon Coetzer.  It is not specifically a valentine page.  I used photo’s of children that I work with at a baby home. This layout includes an envelope with tags and some sewing
