Closing shop and creating a studio!

Hi everyone,

As many of you may know I have closed my shop, small as it was I just couldn't manage that, my job at the magazine and the many classes I teach elsewhere. It was a hard decision but one that had to be made, I will cherish the many friendships that came about from having the shop and I know I will keep in touch with all the ladies!!

I have just started redecorating the double garage to make way for my Creative Studio!! YAY!! A place just for me to create, play and enjoy!!

This is a photo of a morning tea I had a few months ago, just to give you an idea of colours and interior of the shop! The ladies present are (starting from the left) Robby, Jo, Bev, Lenore and Julie.

I do hope my studio will still be a place of fun and lots of get togethers with craft minded people, I'm sure it will!!

Will keep you updated, back to the painting for me!!

My first DT cards for Pages2Scrap

Hi everyone,

I thought I would give you the link to check out my first Design Team assignment for Pages2Scrap as I'm really excited about the cards and the great team I'm on. You can contact the shop and buy the supplies as they have them in a kit, but there isn't a lot left so be quick! I have just finished my second DT kit and I fell in love with it!!

Anyway... do yourself a favor and have a look! :-)

A card to share

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

I thought I would share a quick post with a card I made late last year using Glimmer Mists, puff paints and chipboard (brand unknown sorry), I hope you like it.
I sprayed the chipboard rainbow pieces with a selection of Glimmer Mists then glue them back together again. I cleared embossed over the top of it for a lovely shiny coat. I applied white puff paint to the clouds, let them dry then sprayed a grey Glimmer Mist on them. The cloud background was created by placing cloud chipboard pieces on my card then I applied a light coating of blue mist over them. The rub-on words are old Making Memories brand and I finished the sentiment with alphabet stickers.


Thank you for looking!
