A few weeks ago, I suggested to Debbie J who is a traditional scrapper, that she teach a class next year centred on the latest scrapbooking craze........ Project Life........ using all the fabulous products from We R Memory Keepers. She hesitantly grabbed some pocket pages, journaling cards and papers and headed home. Today she brought in her finished pages and with a grin from ear to ear said how she was addicted and would like to start up a monthly club where people can get together in an environment where they enjoy each other’s company, enjoy a coffee (of course) and get their  memories recorded each month.  Debbie explained how she had these Queensland photos for years sitting in a drawer  because she could never work out just how she was going to scrap them and now they are in an album finished!
Debbie is so excited about helping you complete your albums quickly and easily just like she did!

 Our club is called CREATIVElife....we will meet once a month on the first Friday or the second Saturday of the month. You will receive a new packet of journaling cards, embellishments and monthly specials on the We R Memory Keepers ranges exclusive to you. This club will help you document your own or your family’s story by sharing the beauty and simplicity of this wonderful system.
All you need to start with is a BIG pile of photos and we will help with the rest....

Classes start Friday 7th or Saturday 15th February, they will go for 2 hours and will cost $30.00....that's it!
Seating is limited so bookings are a must....please contact the shop for more information....52221449

Mother Goose 3D Layout

 Hello Everyone, I would like to share with you this lovely 3D layout that  Debbie Jonhston has created using the latest Graphic 45 paper Collection "Mother Goose" 
It is little hard to see with this picture  but all the pictures have been fussy cut and layered, the border has also been layered to create a shadow box effect. She has created this 3D effect by putting the background paper onto  cor flute, this gives it the strength and is also very light .....

Another interesting effect is the use of texture paste and a brick stencil to create  wall....

Here Deb has used a birds nest to sit  on the branch 
that is holding up the baby's crib. 

This is a lovely piece Deb and would compliment any could add a photo into the background if you wanted to...
