Strawberry Picking

Hello crafty friends. I would like to share with you my November  DT page for the challenge over at Archi-scraps. This one is a beauty. On your page you have to use fruit. Yep it's time to get into some fruit. I was so lucky I had a photo of my son Harley picking strawberry's and some great Kaiser paper with strawberry's on it. So now for the challenge inspiration photo and my take on it. 


Strawberry's would have to be my favorite and what better than straight from the plant. 

For this page I used -
Kaisercraft Patterned Papers - BonAppetit  Collection
Die Cut Letters
Cream Cardstock (for the letter)

I hope you have enjoyed popping in to see my latest creation and please call on over to Archi-scraps for more from the rest of the design team. I look forward to you joining in with us and seeing your yummy fruit. Happy Crafting xxx

The Best Things In Life

Hello and welcome to my blog and this months challenge for Colorful Creations.
I have titled my take on the challenge "The Best Things In Life" because these three people are the best things in my life. My family is my world but I know I'm not alone in that one. 
So now for the challenge and my take on it. 

  This is the month we celebrate thankfulness and we want to host a thankful inspired challenge for the first part of this month. Create a project or layout that display something you are Thankful for.  Using 50% of your stash let's not only be thankful but  also use our stash on our projects. 

Time can never take from the boys the love they shared with mum/grandma. This memory of their first dance with her before they got ready for the school dance will be theirs to keep. She cried so much knowing what she was going to be missing and she struggled to dance but she did it. She took that memory with her and Riley and Harley hold onto it too. She knew her time was close, she never said it, she loved them and ever so slowly moved her feet and in the end the tears rolled down her cheeks. This was her first and last real dance with them. 

The best things in life really are the people we love. 

The products used are -
Kaisercraft Patterned papers
Fussy cut clocks from patterned papers
Clock and scribble die
Brass embellishment
Brown ink

I hope you have enjoyed my page and that I have inspired you to join in with us. Over at Colorful Creations you will find more inspiration from the design team so please hop on over and check it out. Join in with us as I would love to see your take on the challenge. 

Happy Crafting and always remember to tell those you love what they mean to you. Hugs xxx

Canvas Class

Welcome to my blog. Today I would like to share with you my latest class I taught at the 
Treasures Forever Scrapbooking Retreat last weekend. 
Wow what a great retreat and also what a fun class. All the lady's love doing it which was so wonderful. Everyone agreeing is was so nice to do a canvas and not have to worry about measurements and loads of concentration.  The lady's were already deciding who they were giving the canvas to for Christmas before they were finished and most were thinking of Grandchildren. 

These are the sample canvases I created for their inspiration - 

Now a few pics of some of the girls working on their creations. 

This next photo is some of the girls finished. 

Canvas, Chipboards, Dream Catchers, Crayons, Rubons and Photos are the main combinations used along with lots of fun. You know when someone enjoys your class when they are working out the next class they want you to do in 2018.
Thanks ladies I had the best time, you were all so much fun and your canvases come up beautiful. 
Thanks Roz - Treasures Forever for having me each year to teach a class at retreat.  I'm also looking forward to the day classes I will be teaching in 2018. You ladies will be keeping me on my toes that's for sure. Thank you.

Art Journal Tutorial

Welcome to my blog.
I would like to share with you my Art Journal double page I created of my son Riley. 
It has been created in my Art Journal which has hand made paper so that is why you are seeing some white around the edge from the page before and after. I love creating in this art journal because of the texture of the paper. When doing it with one of these journals though always remember to Gesso the pages so there is no bleeding through to the other side or you will ruin other work created on the page before or the next page you will create on. 
This is my finished journal page and you can find all the details of how I did it over at The Off The Rails Blog. There is the monthly challenge, my tutorial and many other inspirations from the Design Team so please come on over and join in with us.

Thank you so much for stopping in to my blog.
