Celebrate Good Times

I had a blast creating and teaching my February class layout for Scrapaholics and today I get to share them with you.  Lots of clean layers and textures in this fun multi photo layout.  I’m aiming to have more photos in my layout classes this year, listening to what you lovelies have requested.  This layout is very much about the circles, and is repeated in many different ways throughout.  Here it is:

“Celebrate Good Times”

Thank you so much to all the lovely ladies that attended my February class and bought the kit.  I had such a blast and I can’t wait until Scrapaholics release my March class with you all.  A little hint: the background is definitely not white.

Another big news…I’ll be teaching two classes for Scrapaholics at SENZ – New Zealand’s largest Scrapbooking and Craft Expo which will be held at the Ellerslie Event Centre, Auckland on June 30-July 2.  Classes will be released early May so keep an eye out for SENZ class bookings here.  Wooohooo!

Thanks for popping in.



Boys Will Be Boys

This week were my last classes for the year with Scrapaholics and what a great year it has been.  I’ve met so many lovely ladies and Jodi has been so great and helpful.  Thanks so much for taking me on Jodi and I so look forward to a great new year of classes, so bring it on 2017!

Today I get to share with you my latest class layout which is a bit different from my usual.  And when I say different I mean no flowers, and it’s masculine.

“Boys Will Be Boys”

Boys Will Be Boys

I’ve used the stunning Mr. Tom’s Treasures from Pion Design, amongst Tim Holtz and Tattered Angels products and mediums.  I love putting my own fun twist on this gorgeous vintage and masculine collection.  And the best part about this page is how there are many layers on it without the bulk.

So thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who attended my classes.  I love having you all and sharing my ideas with you.  I’ve already got so many new ideas brewing in my head for next year’s classes.  So excited already!



Rosibelle Two Ways – A Play On Copper

Hello and happy weekend! I had an awesome time teaching at Scrapaholics for my last class and today I get to share it with you.  It’s two clean layouts with a play on copper from the gorgeous Rosibelle collection by Prima.  All the ladies’ layouts turned out beautifully and we all used different size and amount of photos on each page.

“Wrapped With Love”

Best Friend

This first layout has heaps of copper on it, on the background and accents around the page.  Some of the ladies used a bigger photo and some used more than one photo which turned out brilliant.

Next up is a multi-photo layout.

“Me & You”

Me & You

In this page are little hints of copper to accent the papers and colored photos.  The ladies had fun having  a play and experimenting on which photos to use and add to their layouts.  One of them even created a fun masculine page with four photos from this layout, and the result is amazing.

Now it’s time for me to add the finishing touches to my layout for next month’s class.  Hint: it’ll be very different from my previous classes, and it’s masculine (oooohh!!!).  It’ll go live on the Scrapaholics website next week here.

I’d like to give a huge thank you to all the lovely ladies who attended my classes, I really enjoy having each and every one of you there.  You lot constantly give me the inspiration to create and teach everytime.  So much fun, creating, and catching up to do, eh?  See you at next month’s class. 🙂




Mother, Sister, Aunt – A Photoplay Layout

Today I’m sharing a layout which I’ve done as a class months ago for Scrapaholics.  It’s one of my most taught and popular layout at the shop, and now I finally get to share it with you.

“Mother, Sister, Aunt”

Mother, Sister, Aunt

I’ve used the gorgeous Family Ties collection from Photo Play.  I just love the combination of colors, the chart prints, flowers, and the origami hearts altogether.

The sticker sheet from the Family Ties collection is just fab…it was hard which ones to choose from to add to the page.

I had fun creating this layout and I hope you enjoyed today’s post.  Keep an eye out for next month’s classes at Scrapaholics here.  I’ll also be releasing a limited kit so make sure you sign up for the Scrapaholics newsletter to be in the loop.
