Forget me not kit

This kit has just been finished and packed ready to be bought @ R210-00 or class notes @ R60-00.  I just love the bright colours even though the page is very sad.  Scrapbooking is about the good and bad moments in your life.  This page shows a technique of using your cuttlebug and cutting embossing from foil plates.

If you would like to purchase class notes of any of the pages, please contact me on  They sell for R60-00 a set of notes.  If you are overseas, payment could be made via my paypal account and the notes emailed.

Santa's Key

I designed this page using the Scrap Collections range of papers and a Let's Scrap sketch.  A paper piecing element was created using a cat.  I still have a few kits left @ R165-00 if you are interested.

Craftsman range of papers

During the months of December and January, I had 2 full days where we created 6 double page layouts using the Kaiser Craft - Craftsman range of papers.  I also used Let's Scrap sketches for 3 of them.  I loved this range and here are the layouts that I created.

Pocket Tag

Our full day scrap is fully booked for 2 March 2013.  45 Ladies attending on the day - it is going to be awesome.  We still have a handful of kits left @ R350-00 for 2 double page layouts.  One of the things the ladies are going to be shown is how to make this "simple" pocket tag.

1.  Cut cardstock to an A4 sheet of paper.  Fold in half and then in half again.
2.  Open cardstock up, smooth side up.  Fold two bottom corners up to centre line.
3.  Now measure 4cm from the centre line to the left and fold corner in as shown
4.Fold the left side onto the right side.  Add tape on the side where my two top fingers are and the straight right hand bottom side. 
5.  Now fold the bottom piece onto the top piece and you have a beautiful tag pocket made in 5 easy steps.

You can decorate as you wish.  The middle fold could have a piece of patterned paper, the outside fold could have a photo attached or even flowers.  Let your creativity show and I'd love to see what you come up with on a layout.

Full day of Scrapbooking - 2 March 2013

I can't believe its been 8 months since I last posted.  The last time was just before I was leaving for the UK to visit my mom.  But since then, she has been diagnosed with not 1 cancer but 2 and it has been an emotional roller coaster ride especially with me in SA and she in the UK.  Then my father in law needed to have this leg used together at the knee joint and has been diagnosed with Vascular Dementia.  With him living on our property, a lot of the responsibility fell on my shoulders.  It doesn't end there, in November 2012 my long time friend of 32 years took her life.  But 2013 is a year of new beginnings and although my parents health issues are still a concern, life carries on.......

We are onto out 6th full scrapbooking event and we have on average 40 - 60 ladies either attending or buying the kits.

Our full days of scrapbooking are such a hit and the ladies absolutely love them.  The kits are jam packed with value for money and included in the price is a delicious home cooked meal.  We are very conscious of the bad economy so have decided to keep the price for the full day the same as last year.  Remember to book soon to avoid disappointment.
Life’s a journey

A stunning layout where you create a book using a new technique.  Lots of photos of your travels can be placed inside the book.
