Some you time?

Queensland Scrapbooking Retreats holds weekend retreats and all-day crops for scrapbookers and cardmakers alike. The next retreat is at Kilcoy and will be held from 16-19 May….that’s 3 whole days of papercrafting.

I am chuffed to bits to have been asked along to teach a class!

Here are some sneaks of the layout we will be creating with some info up on the blog too.

Numbers are capped so don’t delay your booking to avoid disappointment. Pricing is very reasonable considering all of the inclusions. Get together with a group or come along on your own and make some wonderful friends, learn some new techniques and thoroughly enjoy a weekend of papercraft therapy!

For more info check out the website or call Ann on 0413 21 6096

Hope to see you there!

Boredgame - Sassy Scappers

Wishing you a peaceful and blessed Easter.

I've created a boardgame to help get me through a long school holiday break.
It's over on the Sassy Scrappers blog today - hop over to download a copy to play
with your little monsters darlings ;)

One man's trash....

... Is another man's treasure! I was at a party a couple of weeks ago and rescued some 
embroidery hoops from certain 'compactment', lol.

Using the totally divine Glitz Design 77 (which is available in the Sassy Scrappers store now)
I'm popping these babies into the monthly challenge on the Glitz blog.
 The hoops have been given a beautiful splash of colour and shimmer with Color Shine 
(Navy, Gold Lamé & Georgia Peach.) Not too sure about the moving mountains bit, 
but this phrase is a personal reminder to myself that I need to get to bed earlier!! 
A subtle Finnley Giant Rhinestone embellie was perfect for this one.
The dot pattern is from the Carpe Diem collection. I've created some paper flowers to sit 
alongside some Manor House blooms and popped a couple of stickers on.
This one was subconsciously influenced by Game of Thrones, I'm sure!
If you fancy playing along, the challenge runs until April 30.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Heartfelt Words - JBS Digital Team

There are so many beautiful things out there to be inspired by. Quotes and phrases I see that tug at a heartstring or make me wanna jump up and do something positive. I've collected a few of these and popped them into a little mini so I can keep them close and add to it as I find new ones. My album is up on the Jenni Bowlin blog today, if you fancy a look inside...

I've used Jenni Bowlin Modern Mercantile and Watch Faces which are both on sale right now in the JBS Digital Shoppe (lots of exciting changes coming to this as well soon!!)

Thank you for stopping by!

Let's hear it for the boy - Jot magazine

Happy Sunday to you!

Have you heard that the stunning new Jot Magazine issue 5 is now live and chock full of inspiration!
I'm fortunate enough to have a couple of layouts in this one, including this ode to my DH, which
I created for the 'men' call with a song in my head.

The bright colours in the photo had me reaching for bold prints, (Glitz Design Finnley 'Bows').
The wording was cut using my Silhouette and then matted with more strong colours
(Glitz Wild & Free 'Hello Adventure')

The bright colours are echoed with rainbow machine stitching around the photo.
I've left a gap open where I've slipped my journalling inside.

I've created a kind of ombré effect inside the cut using a fine tipped coloured pen.

Head over for a peek with a cuppa and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
