ok im back .... properly this time i promise!!! :D

well, liam is back to normal i think. but either way ive had enough sleep to start acting like a normal human being again! I even scrapped a layout yesterday! Although unfortunately I cannot show you it yet cos its for a class at Crafting in Style. Here is a little bit of info if you are thinking you may wanna come. Ill post up a sneak preview tomorrow.


"Another reason to love you ..."
Technique Focus: Machine and hand stitching

Date: 29 July at 7:30pm
Created and taught by Kaz

"Another reason to love you ..." gives you a chance to tell your child another reason (like they need one!) why you love them. Maybe it's a thought you haven't scrapped before or just something they have started doing recently. While the layout focuses on machine and handstitching, other interesting features of the layout are the use of paint, homemade embellishments and also the handcutting of shapes out of patterned paper.

Note: If you do not have a sewing machine you will still be able to complete this layout.


Im so excited to be teaching this class. I love my layout and its my second online class so im excited but nervous! My first class went by without a hitch though so that gives me a bit of confidence.

My To-Do list is building up again because I had that break while liam wasnt well. Here it is!

  1. Do a layout for Jazikt as a part of an ongoing challenge.
  2. Do a layout for Julie because she won a comp at CIS
  3. Finish the 10 card challenge I set myself (I have 3 left to do)
  4. Create 6 homemade embellishments for a swap
  5. Do my layouts for the Awards for Excellence (havent started)
  6. Do my projects for the Scrapping Masters (havent started)
Its really important for me to be involved this year in the FK and SM competitions. I didnt do them last year and itd be interesting to see where I stand. I would never win - I know that. But I wouldnt mind getting an honorable mention hopefully!!! Fingers crossed :D

I got a gorgeous 8.5x11 chipboard Maya Road album which Im also just itching to decorate the cover of!!!! But that is last on my list ... but its what I want to do tonight!!!! That will have to wait though :)

Hiya Kaz, glad to see you have some time to take a breather. Hope your nights are all better!
You'll be fine with the class and you know you could stand a chance at winning with the mag comps. Good luck with those!

Good luck with the magazine comps!! I think you're fabulous so see no reason why you couldn't win!! That class sounds very interesting, will have a look at CIS and book in if it's at a convenient time!!
