Ive got a teaching gig!....Seriously :) :) :)

Hi Guys

Yep another post. I didnt want to chance it with Blogger so Im breaking up the posts. Sometime ago I was asked if I would like to teach at my local scrap store, at which I said yeeeeeeees LOL. The requirement was for me to teach mainstream which was cool, so I adopted the approach that I wouldnt try to pretend I was cool at mainstream and decided to use one of the books that is on sale at the shop as a source of inspiration for a series of classes, see below pics. My first class was booked for the 8th of May and it is now booked out. However there was a lot of feed back that those who had booked in were looking forward to doing some Lou style [STS] scrapping so I will be doing a complete turn around for the next classes. If you are coming to the class guys Ill chat with you and discuss what you would like to do!!!


These are some sneeks of what you can expect, there is a male and female version to choose. Pop over to the Seriously Scrapbooking blog for more details and if you would like to book in I have another repeat class scheduled for the 20th of May.
Seriously Scrapbooking is located at ~ Shop 4, 501 Goodwood Rd, Colonel Light Gardens 5041
Phone number is 08 8277-1298, and Email: jane@seriouslyscrapbooking.net.au.
Cheers and Happy Scrapping

Creative Soul Retreat :) :) :)

Hi Guys

I hope you are having a wonderful Easter Break! I ve had a very relaxing time, unfortunately I havent done a lot of personal creating. I worked one day and caught up on some much needed R'n'R. Ive done a lot of www surfing, some email returning [still got a few more to do] some Aussie Scrap Source creating. Ive also edited some photos to share showing my fun at the Creative Soul Retreat.

These next pics are of the pages I did in an Art Journal workshop by the Wonderful Jan Harris, when we learning different background techniques.


This bird stamp was carved by Jan isnt it delicious!!! I was fortunate to be able to acquire this and another at the end of the workshop,.. I was absolutely over the moon :) :) :)

Unfortunately the modpodge showed up with this photo aaargh LOL.




This is the other wonderful hand carved stamp by Jan.

I Also did a 2 day Workshop by the Amazing Judy Wilkenfeld. I was very much in creative heaven in this workshop, And, despite the fact that I had gotten the wrong supplies and my glue was completely a dud batch -[didnt stick] I still had an absolute blast and learnt a lot!!




I didnt get a lot of pages completed, most of our time was in learning the basics and loooots of wonderful techniques!!! But here are a few pics of what I managed to complete page wise.

Well that is most of what I wanted to share :) Ill leave you with a pic of a most gorgeous little girl called Bree who is the DD of the Lovely Kylie, one of Tiff's friends, who I spent the day with after the e2c retreat. More pics to share as soon as edit :)

Oh and These next 2 pics are of a layout I did featuring some photos that I took of the devine Ange at the e2c retreat :)



Cheers and I hope you have had a wonderful break!
