Oh my gosh!!!

It seems there really is a desk under all the stuff I've thrown into the scrap room over the past 2 weeks whilst eisteddfod fever has hit my house.  Between dancing and speech & drama and a fundraising night where I took part of the shop with me, my poor scrap studio has not seen a great deal of time to tidy lately.  I did sit for a few hours last week and create a couple of fabulous Family History interview books which I shall photograph and upload in the next day or so but the housekeeping side has been poorly neglected.

However, the good side to this is that when I did find it today I also had time to unpack a box of wonderful new paper ranges from Kaisercraft including this one of the Lakehouse pictured above.  Kaiser have started selling their new ranges as packs as well as individual papers and other embellishments - fabulous news for those of us who like to have the whole range to play with.

Here are some images of the other ranges I've just received in

Dimensional Details Workshop

Anyone who has ever heard me chat scrapbooking will know that I'm a HUGE fan of Nic Howard.  I took her Dimensional Details workshop over at Big Picture classes in 2010 and I'm sooooooo excited to have just heard that she has a new and expanded version of this workshop coming back and starting in July and running through till October 2012.

If you have never had a go at an online class, this is definitely one I would recommend whole heartedly.  Nic's work is incredible, the step by step classes to a huge number of layouts teach technique, technique and more technique and this girl is the Queen of cluster embellishments and dimension.  The last time I did this workshop the forum and the gallery was overflowing and I've made some wonderful international friends through this workshop who all share our passion for scrapbooking. 

I've already signed up but if you would like to join me - follow this link and sign up now - .  Nic already has a project for us to start with and the class doesn't even start till July.

Leave me a message here if you have signed up so I know to look out for you on the message boards and in the gallery.

Australian Scrapbook Ideas

I know it seems I've been extremely slack on the blogging front but to be honest everything I've been creating lately is stuff I can't yet share with you. 

However, issue 13 of Australian Scrapbook Ideas has some of those layouts.  I was given the opportunity to play with the Wedding stack from Bella's 8x6" pads.  A terrific range of papers which all work so well together.  I had great fun working with photos of my beautiful daughter at her formal with her Dad, a beautiful photo of my Mum and stepdad and also a trip back through memory lane with some dress up photos of my little girl and niece playing weddings.

Amongst the products I was playing with for this issue was the wonderful Bella fancy florals.  Check it out in newsagents now.

I have some deadlines to meet this week but after that I hope to be able to share some Family History workbooks I'm playing with.  Geneology is something I
ve just started playing with and I'm really enjoying it.  These workbooks are designed to use to interview members of your family and keep those special stories all in one place.  Everything from first crush to what sport the interviewee played at school.  So watch this space.....
