Cards from Classes

I thought I would share some full images from the classes I have taught lately. This first lot were with Graphic 45 papers and Prima stamps.  We learnt how to make the ric rac roses.

And this set were inspired by some Penny Black cards.  Very simple and easy, repeating the pattern.

Thanks for stopping by

Would love to see you there.

Your Inspiration At Home - my secret to share!

Ok, so last post I mentioned a little secret.  Well I am ready to let the cat out of the bag, my paperwork is signed, my stock is on it's way and I am so excited I could w...............well, let's just say I am SUPER excited!!!  I went to a Your Inspiration At Home party last Friday night.  Now what is one of those you ask????  Well here is the speel on their website:

Your Inspiration at Home is dedicated to bringing you our gourmet range of food products and kitchenware including our large range of international spices, dip mixes, oils, meat rubs, coffee syrups, teas and sugars.

 Now I don't love to cook.  BUT I LOVE eating tasty, gourmet style food that doesn't take long to create.  So on Friday night I was BLOWN AWAY by these products.  The dip mixes are to die for!  So much so that I practically chased the Demonstrator around the kitchen trying to find out how to sign up.  And my new business begins!

I know it's not paper, but I love eating as much as I love paper (my clothes size attests to that!!).  And I can't wait to share these products with as many of you as I can, AND how darn easy they are to use to make a gourmet meal at home.  So if you would like to hold a Tasting Party with me to try these fantastic products (that I am SO excited about, have I mentioned that???) then email me at scrapalley@gmail.com or call me on 0414 444 150.

I will have a blog especially for Your Inspiration At Home very soon but just wanted to share it with you here first.

Cupcakes, Cupcakes & Cupcakes

I am so enjoying making cupcakes and having a reason to make them is even better.  We are off out to a friends birthday get-together tonight and it was requested that I make cupcakes!!  YAY!!  So here they are for your viewing.

And these ones are my favourite.

Do they make your mouth water?????  Believe me the Chai Frosting is to die for.  So much so it has inspired me to other things.......hmmm, but that is my secret for now.  LOL!!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great long weekend.

The response to these workshops has been great and I can't wait to hold my first one.  Now I know the day of the week and being a week day doesn't suit everyone, so I want to let you know that the days will change regularly so that hopefully one here or there will suit everyone.  Please find following details of the next two Craft & High Tea workshops coming up.  These are such fun projects and I can't wait to share them with everyone.  Please email me at scrapalley@gmail.com if you would like to book into either (or both) of them.

Wishes Done Our Way

A friend of ours is facing a hard battle at the moment and we decided we needed to do some cheering up for her..............in our style.  So Miss G and I got busy on our weekend away and we created this:

Using 8" x 8" canvas boards from Base Warehouse we created the covers by painting, sticking on printed tissue paper from Typo and the stamping and inking up with some vintage browns.

We then embellished with a Prima diecut, cute mannequin cut from canvas, Donna Downey canvas letters and Collections Elements words.  Add some seam binding and there you go!  The inside pages are made from cardstock and Fab Scraps patterned paper and left blank for our dear friend to create her own magic on.  So from Georgina, Debbie and I to you Miss Lizzie.........................love, good wishes, strength and hugs come to you from us!  xoxoxoxo
