Shaker Card

Thought i would have another go at a shaker card
Made one a while ago but i just cant seem to get it right
I love the colours of this card and the layout

Not sure if i like the shaker part and i struggled with getting the layers together nicely
I guess with practice i can only improve

Busy Busy

I have been rather busy in the craft room lately, Got all the christmas cards made, had
a clean up in the craftroom and a little rearrange

I also entered a couple of scrap pages and an exploding box
at our local A&P show. Ended up with two 1st and a 2nd.
Also got Best Exhibit - Paper Craft Section

Was rather pleased with myself

I am in love with how this card turned out
I havent done an altered project for a while so it was really nice
to get my hands hands dirty and that they are.

This has a lot of layers going on with inks, paints, modeling paste etc.
I need to d more of these as they are a great way to pass
the time on a rainy November day

With Love Card

I had no idea about where this card was going to end up, All i had in mind
was layering the work "with love" about 4 times
on top of each other and just went from there

Is turned out ok, Not 100% sold on it and i didnt throw it in the rubbish so 
that is a good sign

Page Layouts

What do you do when you are on holiday from work??
You craft of course.....

I have done a couple of page layouts. Focused mostly on the detail
in the card stock adding inks stenciling and paste.
So they have a lot of texture and detail.

Also did a bit of tidying in the room and i reeally need to destash some of
my old stuff that i have had for a while and dont use to make room
for some fresh new product

Still 2 more weeks left of my time off from work so heaps of time left to

Tough life

Another Mixed Media

The mixed media bug has well and truly bitten me, I fine myself making a page everyday,
I really do enjoy it. 

I try to do something different each time but my knowledge is very limited at the moment

I have also set myself a goal of getting back into scrapbooking  more this year as i
rarely do it if at all.

I have also been excepted onto 2 design team...will post more info soon

Autumn Escape = Taupo

3 Days away at a craft retreat =  Heaven

6 classes over 2 days and the 3rd day as rest

Our tutors for the weekend were 
Vicki Boutin
Lowri McNabb
Jane Tregenza

Such talented ladies and their knowledge of craft is priceless. Loved it so much. Here are some of my projects that were completed

Roll on 2017 so we can do it all over again


Weekend Away

What a fantastic weekend. My girlfriends and i went away to a retreat in a town about 
4 hours away. ....And we hit the ground running. 
6 classes spread over 2 days and the 3rd day was rest (needed it too)
The run a shop at the retreat so of course i dd a little bit of shopping
He is what i came up with, I had bought the Dylusions Journal  and this is the first

Colours are a little brighter in life. The paints and stencils i used i also 
purchased at the retreat. 

Sometimes it nice to sit down and get messy

A friend card

This one came together really nice and simple. I always colour my image first
and then pick the paper but i need to change this as sometimes it can
be a struggle

So her she is ..... So pleased with how her hair turned out

A little close up of the image

And some of the embellishments

Love when it all comes together

Craft Retreat

Doesnt seem that long ago that we were at Autumn Escape in Taupo but its been a year
and we are going again this month. I just love it, girl time, crafting, food prepared for us
the whole weekend...NO Housework...Heaven

This year they decided to do a tag swap with the theme being Autumn
So here are my 4 i came up with

So looking forward to receiving 4 new ones, I really love looking at other peoples creations


Mixed Media

For the last 6 months  or so my girlfriends and i have been going along to a mixed media
class held at a local scrapbooking store. We learn mainly Technics and how different
products work. 

I struggle a bit with mixed media as i feel its not controlled enough. I like things lined
up and planned, where this seems a little more laid back and free.
I have given it a go anyway and came up with this canvas. Its not what i 
had in my head and it somehow doesnt sit right with me

But hey i can only learn and move on and up.......Hopefully the first
of many

Watch this space as i try and try again

Another card

Well this year so far is going well. I have finally got my mojo back and really enjoy playing around in the craft room. Here is tonights make. So so happy with how she turned out. Lets hope tomorrow brings more of the same

This is the first card i selected the paper line first and then coloured the image. I usually do it the other way round but i think this may be the way i do it in the future

But slowly I have had the urge to craft and today I came up with this......I am back !!! lol
