Album in a month Course

Do you have lots of photos that you just don't get to? Photos of a particular holiday, event or even your babys first years? Or maybe you just have a pack of random photographs you would like to scrap, but dont' get around to.

Then this project is for you!Genevieve has created an album that can be done in a month. It is a 4-week project with clear line scrapping and is gorgeous. The album is part of her 'affordable scrapbooking line' and is going to be so popular.

The layouts are singles and doubles - which is perfect for events that need both. Somthimes you don't have enough photos to create a double layout, do you?

The class is run on Thursday nights 6pm-9pm. It will suit all levels of scrapbookers.

Remember paper and embellishments are to be bought in class. Please book your place by calling 041-3682000 as seats are limited and this project is uber popular.

Social Class

Hi everyone,

Do you, like me, feel that this year has started and already gone so quickly - I just can't seem to get organised. Time moves so quickly, doesn't it?

So many projects, great ideas to do, layouts to complete and so goes my list.

With this in mind I am hosting a FREE SOCIAL CLASS every Wednesday morning. 9am-12pm, you are welcome to join in, have a cuppa with us and get some scrapbooking done. You can start a new project or complete something you are working on.

Please book you place, by calling the shop on 041-3682000, or leaving a comment here, or booking via facebook

Hope to see you all there, and if you can't make this week - remember we will be meeting every Wednesday morning

Happy scrappin'

Quick Mini Christmas Album

Have you already downloaded your Christmas photos, sorted through them and printed them out? If your like me, that usually gets done towards Easter! But since 2010 is my year for getting organised, and TIME is my new buzz word, i've been proactive this year.

I created this mini Christmas Album for my sister-in-law to remind her of her holiday at home (she lives in the UK with her fiance). It was our little Morgan's first Christmas, and we all enjoyed watching her with the paper and presents!

Take rectangle chipboard pieces for your pages. I used 5 12cmx8cm chipboard, including cover and back. Since you need to cover 10 sizes, select either 5 double pages (you get 2 pages covered from 1 sheet) or 10 single pages. Choose Christmas paper, with greens and reds if you are going for the traditional Christmas theme.

Firstly I covered each chipboard sheet. I put the double sided tape (medium or thick tape) onto the chipboard and then put the paper onto the chipboard. It is easier to then cut the paper from the chipboard with your craft knife.

I then chose my pictures to fit each page. It is a good idea to have some jumbos, 2 ups, 4 ups as well as 6 ups for this project. I like to pick and chose and love to have a variety of printed photos to play around with.

After embellishing each page, do some journalling (i put the menu onto one of the tags) as well as some colour coded ribbons on the rings.

Enjoy this quick and easy project. It is a perfect gift, or a reminder of hopefully a wonderful Christmas.

Welcome 2010

Happy New Year to all bloggers! May this be a year of prosperity, peace, family and abundant blessings.

We are so excited about the New Year and have so many new, exciting, creative things that we are conjuring up for you all. Watch this space, our blog will soon be full!

If you are following the Ali Edwards blog have you decided on your word yet? If you haven't followed her blog, she challenges everyone to have a word that you want to focus on and be inspired by. A word that will represent what you want from the new year, what will 2010 be for you?

My word is TIME. Time for God, better time management, time with my family, quality time with my baby, time to scrap and time for me. Everyday you think about your word and with that thinking also needs to come action - in order to fulfill your desire for the new challenges and new doors that open this new year for you.

Think about your year ahead, and the word that will inspire you. Let us know what your word is and we will be back soon with some mini albums and fantastic layouts.

God bless
