Newest Design Team Lo........

So this month, Natalie gave me some awesome Twiddleybits chipboards to play with along with some Fusible film. This stuff is awesome! I must confess though that i have had some fusible film for some time now and not really known what to do with it. It wasn't until a few weeks ago, when the amazing Linda Baldock was here that i was privy to her knowledge on using the film. I have to say, Im totally hooked! I just want to put it on every project now. Now thing is, you can play with it too! we just got in a whole bunch of fab colours to be had. Look here for your faves.

Let me know what you think about this current lo I have done, I love to hear what you have to share.

Crown/Wing Plaque......

So Yesterday I had the privilege of teach a group of 8 amazing women how to put together the Collections 3d crown and wings to create this little plaque. A massive thank you goes out you all, Caroline, Denise, Elli, Tanya, Brenda, Karen, Lisa and Mandy! xxx Thanks for making it an absolutely wonderful afternoon. I was so excited and charged after the class I was awake until about 2am creating! so thank you for that also. xxx You all did a fabulous job and as you can see they were all gorgeous and so very different with each of the girls personal styles!

Also, I have spent the day playing around to give my blog a bit of a make over. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think?

Projects from our Australian Scrapbook Apprentices are in! This round's challenge was:
  • Create at least 1 Layout, 1 Card & 1 Off the Page project using the products enclosed. You may use plain card/paperstock as well as florals and limited effects (embossing, inking etc.). Your theme for this round is "Christmas in July"
To see all of our apprentices' work and the judges' thoughts you will need to pick up
issue 21 of docrafts Creativity! Magazine
(find your local stockist here).
Here are our winners and notable entries for round one!

* When voting, please note: the judges want to know your opinions on the projects submitted, not just who you think is awesome (though we certainly know why you think so)! Only thoughtful, constructive and applicable comments will be considered when judges convene and also to decide our "peoples choice" for round one, so tell us which projects you liked, which you loved and which you thought needed a little bit of something extra (and what you think they needed).
