March classes at Fat Cat Scrappin'

Coming up in March I am teaching a layout using the new Kaiercraft Class of '87 range. Isn't it about time we had some Aussie styled school products? Including words like Prep and lots of little banners it is a really cute range. The journal pockets are super cute and lots of rubons are available. I have made my layout into a pocket for all of my cuties' student of the week awards, sport ribbons etc.
Anyway, here's my sample. Class is on Friday March 25 7-9pm, $10 class fee plus materials - hope to see some new faces along with the regulars.

Little cutie

Don't you just love this photo of my baby cousin? It is the inspiration for his baptism gift - I'm going to make a canvas and hope it turns out okay.

At last, finished projects!

As promised, I have been clicking away and taking lots of photos of my most recent projects!
To start, here are the canvases I made to pretty up my loungeroom.
I am very happy with how they turned out.

I have used lots of natural textures that suit the farm feel of the photo and our lifestyle.  Dried grass from the paddock,hessian, raffia, snippets of green, a leaf and even a little bee is peeking out.

Again, in keeping with the the natural theme I have used calico to make my own flowers on a branch from the yard, raffia, a Bo Bunny flower, pins and a little dragonfly is hiding. 

I used impasto medium as the base for both canvases to add some texture. I love how they turned out!

Just finished my layout for Scrapbook Challenges, sketch 239

Have been meaning to scrap these photos of my Nan and Pa's wedding day for ages, and finally found a sketch I LOVE! My new Tim Holtz tickets came in handy, and some little frames I picked up from the op-shop and a beautiful button finish it off nicely.

Finished my December Kraft it up challenge, a Christmas layout using non-traditional colours.

I love using stiching and haby on my layouts - can you tell?- and thought the dress pattern looked cool on everyone elses layout, so why not? The buzz and bloom alphas are great, I paint them, glitter them, ink them, use them raw etc.

And following are just a couple of layouts I have finished in the last couple of weeks.

 Using Fat Cat Scrappin' January kit matched perfectly for my layout about Book Week last year.

Another kraft it up challenge, altering the edges of my layout. Love grunge, its my excuse to by myself: messy!

My baby broke his arm a while ago, definately needs to be documented.

So many more to post, but I am out of time. Don't forget to check out the Jindivick flower and craft show on the last weekend in February and the Warragul Show, first weekend in March.

Where does the time go?

I have been so busy with the billy-lids on holidays I have had no time to myself! Have managed to fit in some scrapping when they are at their best - asleep! Completed my first canvas and am wrapped with how it turned out. Working on another now, will upload photos asap.
Completed my entry for Fat Cat Scrappin January challenge, a layout for my February class and have finished off some UFO's as well as starting and finishing (yes, your read it right) some new layouts.
Will be looking at some new challenge sites so I can continue on my ABC of me - a much avoided topic by so many scrappers, but a really rewarding and worthwhile pursuit.
Fat Cat Scrappin Forum will be on-line real soon, can't wait!
