New Pink Paislee – yummy!

September 23, 2009

I will be teaching a class at Scrapbook Parade in November using the new fall line from Pink Paislee and it is YUMMY!!!  The line is called “Amber Road” and is everything fabulous about fall – warm colours, apples, harvest, gratitude.  Now that it is officially fall, I am definitely in the mood for some “cooler” layouts – here are a couple of the layouts for that class.

All About Autumn Class

Next I will be working on some layouts for that spookiest of seasons. . .  with the new lines from Fancy Pants and Pink Paislee – YAY!!!


Catching up

September 22, 2009

It has been such a busy week – back to work, teaching classes, and kids into school full time!  I have been hanging out alot at Wescrap – the ABC card swap is in full swing and we are having a great time –  Wescrap membership is now FREE (yippee) so drop by and sign up for lots of chances to win some great prizes and meet some terrific scrappers from around the globe!

I taught a 10 page layout class at Scrapbook Parade on the weekend – lots of fun and great to reconnect with some students I haven’t seen in a while!  Here is what we made using the Garden Grove collection from Scenic Route!


Check back tomorrow for information on the upcoming Design Team search at Wescrap – maybe you are the person we need to join our team – all the details will be here, so check it out!!!

Happy Day everyone!


A cool photography site. . .

September 14, 2009

I made a really fun discovery the other day and want to share!  You may be familiar with Allison Orthner – a photographer and scrapper who writes for Canadian Scrapbooker and has been published in numerous scrapbook publications.  She also hosts Crop and Cruise events where you can crop while you cruise ( how great would that be?????)

I love her blog and website – check them out here and here – they are full of inspiration for your photography and scrapping!!!

The funny part?  Even though I have been a fan for a while I never realized until this weekend that she was my LOCKER PARTNER all through high school!  We finally caught up with each other on Facebook and put it all together!!!  Small world!  And its been fun to catch up after all these years!!!

So check out her blog and website – they are terrific – and maybe you will even want to join her in Cancun as an instructor or participant at her next event!!

And on another, completely different, tangent – here is one of the layouts for a class I am teaching at Scrapbook Parade this weekend – there is still a spot or two available – 10 pages using the terrific Garden Grove collection from Scenic Route!


 Happy Day everyone!


I love October Afternoon!

I love the shaped paper from Jenni Bowlin, too! 

I just got the latest kit – Cherry Sundae – so watch here for some great layouts using more terrific products from October Afternoon!


I am so excited. . .

So thrilled to announce that I have been invited to join the Inspiration Team at WeScrap!!!  I have been a guest designer for a couple of months, and was so excited when I was asked to become a regular part of the team!!!  I am really looking forward to sharing some inspiration with such a great community!!!


And as we begin Easter week – a couple of Easter layouts to get you inspired and thinking about all things fresh and new and sweet!!


I am teaching this one as a class at Scrapbook Parade on Saturday April 11th!!!

Bo Bunny Mini Album

March 17, 2009

I am teaching a class at Scrapbook Parade in April and thought I would share a bit of it here!  It is a great little album from Bo Bunny called “All Roads Lead to Home”- check out the link to the store and call to sign up!!! 




That is just a sneak peek – stop by our new location to see the whole book!  You will also have enough materials left over to create another layout – I will show you how!!!!

Happy Day everyone!
