DT & Classes

Crafting Ireland Design Team

It was such a pleasure to be asked by Timi of Crafting Ireland to join their design team. I'm really looking forward to pushing the creativity. If you haven't yet seen the new edition of the magazine then follow this link there is loads of inspiration and creativity :D

"What's the Story?"

The next Class is on June 10th and after careful deliberation we are going to do a scrapbook page inspired by the Crate Papers Story Teller. Do you have a story to tell, about yourself, about a family member or a friend? This class will mix vintage ideas and elements with a contemporary twist and feel. 

The class is €25 and includes your full kit, tea/coffee and a light lunch.

To book either email me on or ring on 086 3817677

A simple Scrapbook demo for Busy Bee's

I had a great time last night with the lovely ladies of Busy Bee's craft club. There is nothing better than being in the company of so many crafty women :D

The idea was to demo scrapbooking to some who may never have seen it before, so i decided to do a very simple layout (not to scare them :D) with 2-3 techniques. I used some papers from We R Memory Keepers and a photo of my lovely little woman (who does not allow me to take her photo anymore :( hence the shallow depth of field )

The technique we did was making a paper flower from old book pages

We used chipboard letters as a template for making our own title out of co-ordinating card stock (I sware I'm not obsessive with co-ordination, hee hee)

If you don't have co-ordinating (:P) ribbon then you can use some cardstock as a tab on your tag :)

I think the ladies enjoyed the demo and I reckon we have a few converts along with one or two who are already scrapbooking. What I learned.... I seem to love co-ordinating papers with my cardstock and my images, who knew?
