The Scrapbook Studio - Jeffreys Bay

I was super excited to be asked by Cariena Basson of The Scrapbook Studio to come and teach a class in her shop in J Bay.

What an experience!!!!!!! It was amazing. So many new friends and loads of fun we had.

We started the day real early to be in Port Elizabeth at about 8.30 am. We went by road to J Bay.

Guess where our first stop was.

The view from the little cafe where we stopped for coffee!!!
Look what we ended up with. Not just ONE but Three cocktails!!!!!!!



My two partners in crime!!!! Karen and Teresa.

A long story!!!!!!

Hi everybody!!!!!!!!
I have really neglected my blog so terribly.
A lot has happened since September last year.
I have had the wonderful opportunity of going back to work full time and in my favorite shop of all times Beautiful Scrapbooks.
Taryn Johnson is the new owner, and I am managing the shop for her. So it was a roller coaster ride of being busy and getting things in the shop sorted out, new systems and a whole new venture.
For now we are settling into the routine and I am soooooo happy again doing what I love.!!!!!!!!!
I must admit my scrap booking projects have also been neglected BUT all is back on track again.

Our gorgeous new logo.

 Taryn and Yours truly.

Hope you all have a super day.

Keep scrapping

Fab Scraps



Good morning from a very EARLY morning here in South Africa..
I have a cat (a real Tabby) her name is Gabby and boy she is driving me crazy. 
She calls me early in the morning and then as soon as I am awake she goes right back to sleep. I on the other hand cant do that. Once I am awake that's it. So hence the EARLY blog post.

As you know I am on the design team of the Fab Scraps Range of products. 
I have been busy with the product lately. Today I would like to share some of the pages I have done.

I hope you have enjoyed the pages.

Just chatting!!!!!!!!

Good morning everybody. Oh my goodness I have neglected my blog tooo much!!!!

So sorry I have been so busy. We lost one of our four legged babies last weekend and it was traumatic to say the least. Gigi was our baby cat and a real little brat at that. But we miss her and of course no crafting was done.

I have picked up my game and are back crafting again.

I have a class at our local scrapbooking store "Beautiful Scrapbooks on Sat 10 th September.

Sharing today what I did.

I used the amazing new colours of K Craft glimmer spray.


Coloured this gorgeous owl using the spray. I mixed the 3 colours.


I coloured my prills. You can also colour beads or sylica gel balls using this.


Some stencil bumping.


And a snippet of the finished project.




As always I would appreciate your input.
