WOW Marika - love the crispness of the white on that kraft... love love love it!!
Also fabulous stitching and use of the felt flower ribbon. Those scattered buttons and brands finish it all off beautifully!
Also it was a brilliant happy photo that was great to see on the front page of the Port Lincoln Times!

This is just wow, wow, WOW!
In the past few years, technique workshops have featured heavily (particularly stamping) on our feedback forms so we decided to incorporate them into 2011.
We feel very blessed to have two incredibly talented ladies leading us through various techniques which will add different elements to our pages.
What a coup to have secured Fran and Tatum as our main class teachers prior to them being named Masters! I cannot wait to participate in these classes and learn from two of Australia's best!
Again, thanks for all those that booked our classes and workshops. We know you are going to love creating with these ladies!
Thanks also for your ongoing support of e2c in 2010. Your comments, sending in layouts to share and positive vibe on the blog keep us going. Let the creative mojo flow in 2011.
Peanut butter reindeer cookies!
from here. I can imagine them being a bit hit at a school end of year xmas party!

This is a page of Phoenix after McHappy Day, she is totally a face painting junkie. LOL. I used the Echo Park, A Walk in the Park range, because it was so bright and colourful. I did lots of hand sewing on this one and used the Martha Stewart Butterfly punch for this big butterflies. Hope you like it.
PS I just wanted to say a big THANKS for your sketches and the great inspitation they provide me with. For a long time i just looked at them but am determined to have a go at them now because once i got off my bum and started i had a ball playing, and i am actually completing more pages now. For those few people that stop by for a look but don't actually give them a go, jump in and won't regret it.
Wow Gina, love all of this!! Love those beautiful butterflies, and arn't those Echo Park papers all sooo yummy??!!...... and such cute photos!!
And so glad you are inspired by my sketches!!! Thanks for joining in, i love to see your lovely work......i am so inspired by your pages, you are so clever!!

I have used paint splats for my round embellies in the corners over the top of some stamped Christmas words.
And i have put some vellum thru the cuttlebug which my title is sitting on top of. And i am loving the pulled stitched look at the moment....as you can see!
Hope you all getting organised for Christmas, those puddings boiled, nibbles made and Christmas shopping all but done!!
AND....don't forget to book in for the classes for the scrapping retreat, so we can get on with ordering all your yummy goodies!!
Have a good week,

While looking through some decorating magazines lately this colour combo seems to be the hot new thing atm - kraft with loads of white.
It doesn't look overly exciting here - but believe me the end result looks stunning. I can't wait to fiddle.
Also don't forget to book into your classes - time is slipping away! Only 8 days left to register!

Here is my example:
I know that you will all probably be too busy for too much scrapping this month, but just in case, here it is. I have seen quite a few layouts lately with strips of paper which is how i started with this one. Quick easy and fun. You can use one or multiple photos ..... i love multi photos of late :).
Look forward to seeing your creations,
Have fun with it....and have a great December getting organised for Christmas
Enjoy the moment of it all,
Fabulous photo and journaling - i really felt like you were right next to me talking about it! Awesome stitching too.
Really loving this Gina and i hope we see a lot more of your work in here too. Thanks for being brave and finally sending your pages in. Very inspiring work!
I was a bit overwhelmed by the video (the music and pace is frantic) so got the basics and put my own spin on it.
I was going for a vintage, brown paper and string type of look and i before i knew it had churned out 8 in about an hour!
