Scrapbooking Class

Good morning my lovelies,

Just have to share some pics of my latest class I have done with some beautiful special needs ladies.  Here is Kelly doing her very first scrap book page and she had so much fun! (So did I).  Kelly’s carer Lesley helped out a little But Kelly did a wonderful job and the picture she chose was superb!  A weekly class now.  The beautiful carers do a wonderful job to look after people with disabilities and this outing to make cards and do a bit of scrapbooking is great to get them out and about to do something different.

I get so much out of running these classes and the social interaction afterwards over a cuppa and some cupcakes is great!

Thank you to Kelly’s parents and to Lesley for allowing me to share Kelly’s picture doing something that she just loved.

Now to go and decide on a two picture layout for next week!   These girls will have more scrapbooking done than me if I’m not careful!   🤣🤣


Hope you have a great day!


Coffee and Card Class – All Geared Up!!!

Good morning all,

Another great coffee and card class this month at the busy little Roundtable Coffee Shop in Bracken Ridge.  Yummy coffee, I had two today!  Thanks to Chris, Gloria, Helen, Judy and Gail who came today and let me take their photo to share!  We are now holding our Coffee and Card Classes twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month.  Bookings essential remember!  0419721561 at least a couple of days prior to the class.  Cost is only $5.

The card we made was one that I had prepped for last year but due to illness I couldn’t do the class and its been sitting in my craft room all prepped and so I decided we needed to make it.  I know I struggle with the male cards but this one seemed to tick all the boxes especially for the mechanically minded male!

Here’s the card we did and all the products used are listed below.  A very simple card using Geared Up Garage stamp set and dies.  We used different foil sheets some ladies had the copper foil some had the Grapefruit Grove only as I was using up what I had left in my stash!  Either looks just great!  The card below is using the Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets, see how it picks up the light reflections!!  Cool hey!

Everyone who came today also automatically goes into the draw to win a stamp set and card kit, drawn at the end of April.  If you would like to go into the draw all you have to do is book into any of my classes call me today on 04169721561 to book in for a class that suits you, Coffee and Card, Scrapbooking Class (held last Saturday of each month), one on one class or a workshop at your place where you can earn free Stampin Up products.

Sepia tones

Good morning all,

well I can’t take credit for this design but just had to have a go at it.  I recently did a card that involved the bleaching technique but not using bleach.  Well this card is using bleach to highlight flowers in sepia tones.  Thanks to Gail Ellis and Sandi McIver for their inspirations to try this out.

Love the effects in this card.  Check out their tutorial on YouTube to see how this is achieved.  I used the Very Versailles and Painted Poppies Stamp sets for mine.

Would love to know what you think!
Cheers for now.



Hello my lovelies!

Hope this finds you all well.  How exciting, the lovely Jeremy and Ally at Roundtable Coffee asked if I would like to do fortnightly coffee and card classes, yes I am retired but hey this is so much fun so why not!  I jumped at the chance!  So starting on 25th Feb I will be holding two classes a month at Roundtable Coffee.  So it works out the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, same time, same price just double the monthly fun!

Hope that you can come join us and if you can’t make it one week you always have a second chance.

Bookings are essential to me at least two days prior to the class on 0419721561.  Attending any of my classes gives you automatic entry into the quarterly draw to win a beautiful stamp set and card kit worth over $70 just by attending a class.

I still have a couple of vacancies for the inaugural scrapbooking class on Saturday 22nd Feb if anyone is interested.  Please call to book in.

I had a lovely one on one class the other day with the gorgeous Naomi and her carer where we made a beautiful card!  We didn’t add a sentiment as we werent sure who she would give it to so we left it blank.  Here’s the card.  Its a simple card as Naomi had never done stamping before.

A quick post today must get prepping for Saturday’s scrapbooking class which I am really looking forward to.

Keep on Stampin and Scrappin and generally keep on having fun no matter what you are up to!

Today’s Coffee and Card Class

Had a great morning this morning so much so forgot to take any pictures!  Anyhooooo here’s the card we made and all the lovelies who attended had so much fun learning new techniques!

We used the stamparatus to position the tulip and leaf from the punch and used Terracotta Tile and Pineapple punch to colour the tulips.  The background is stamped using the leaf stamp from Very  Versailles in old olive.  Let’s know what you think of the card!

Always a fun morning, so much so that I will now be running them fortnightly.  Next class will be in two weeks time on Tuesday morning 25th February, bookings essential to me on 0419721561.  Look forward to seeing you.

cheers for now

Tasteful Backgrounds meet See A Silhouette DSP


Good morning all my lovely supporters!  What a beautiful rainy day here in Brisbane, just what we need, a good soaking of rain.  Also a great day to be in the craft room!

I ordered the Tasteful backgrounds when I first saw them when the annual came out last year and haven’t used them until now.  Don’t know why as they are just so beautiful.


I embossed the front using the Subtle textures embossing folder. Then I used the See a Sihouette DSP which is set behind the background cut out.  The white flowers are made using the cut outs left on the big shot from the background die.  Waste not want not!  The rhinestones are the gorgeous new champagne rhinestones which go with anything!  A must have in any crafters stash! The sentiment is from the beautiful Timeless Tulips, embossed using copper embossing powder and has been punched out using the Classic Label lunch – a very versatile punch.

I will list all the products at the bottom as this will make it easier to order any of these products.  To shop just click on the Show Now button to take you to my safe and secure online shop!  Easy Peasy!

Don’t forget about  the scrapbooking class on Saturday 22nd February commencing at 10am nearly booked out only a couple of spots left!  Call me to book in on 0419721561.  Cost is $20 includes refreshments!  To be held here at Wynning Creations in Bracken Ridge!

Ok that’s a wrap from me for today, going to do a bit of scrapping now.  Hope you all have wonderful day.  Until next time, keep on Stampin!
