Long while between posts...

Hi, it has been a long while between posts (so much for my good intentions of updating my blog on a weekly basis!) but I have been busy with helping my mother-in-law move over here to Tasmania from Victoria to live, working overtime in my regular job, and general family commitments. However, I have managed to find time in between to do a little scrapbooking, see my layout below. I have also held a Stampin' Up!® workshop with some lovely ladies where I demonstrated the technique of embossing and emboss resist. They made some lovely cards and at the next workshop we will be doing the brayered sky technique. I have taken a photo of a sunrise from my lounge room window which inspired me to replicate it in a card (so watch this space for when I manage to get to this!).

You may have noticed the catalogue picture on the left which links to the Stampin' Up!® online catalogue has changed. This is so that I conform to the guidelines as stipulated by Stampin' Up!® for websites and blogs etc. Feel free to browse the online catalogue and should you wish to order anything please send me an email to

This layout is of my father (who is Dutch, therefore the name Opa) and his latest (19th) grandchild Damian. I just loved the expressions he was making when dad was talking to him and it is nice to scrap a photo series to tell a story. This layout was created using Designer Series Papers, chipboard letters, twill tape, Hodgepodge Hardware pieces, and after covering the letters with DSP I then covered them with Crystal Effects to give them a glossy dimension. I love how I can embrace Stampin' Up!® products into my scrapbooking hobby. Tomorrow I am going to an all day event to scrapbook, so even though I am not organised for it yet, I am sure I will have fun socialising and will even create a few pages - maybe I might even load some to my blog if I am happy with them to share!

A longer post than usual so hopefully this makes up for my lack of updates. Catch up with you all soon via my blog.

Happy stamping!

Oh how cute - Damian is much bigger now - and rolling. It is great to be able to see your creations online. Keep up the great work
