News for July

First up I wont to thank Sonia for all her help and inspiration,we have been working together on the scrapbook studios design team for the last 6 months and just wont to say what a pleasure its been.Sonia has been on the D.T for some time and is finishing her term this month.If you would like to leave a message for her you can do it by clicking Here I hope we get to work together again,its been a blast.

If you wont to have a go at being August monthly designer just pop your name on the list HERE
If your name is drawn out you will receive a box on goodies to play with and post in the Art Room, you'll be expected to post at least one layout by mid August and the other by end August. We may even ask you to do a couple of cards. If you think you can meet these commitments post your name. We will draw this early next week.

Lisa will be posting info very soon about Scrapbook Studios next DT Call!One lucky person will also receive a Cricut Expression to play with .
It will be brand new still in the box! Comes with the two cartridges in the box ACCENT ESSENTIALS & PLANTIN SCHOOLBOOK FONT. Also there is a special offer at the moment where it comes with a free LYRICAL LETTERS, so the lucky person will have 3 cartridges to play with straight away, then be sent a different one each month so we can rotate them. They will get to borrow the machine and cartridges for 6 months.This DT Call will be separate for somebody who feels they could use this machine in a really creative way to show off the ability of the machine, rather than just the basics.Will be posting this info next week, keep watch!! P.S The person will also need to have a computer running compatible software for the Design Studio, which they will also be given to borrow. (Windows XP) ... so keep an eye out over the next week or two.

We are also nearly ready to start another ATC swap,so keep ya eye out,it will be posted HERE very soon,these are so much fun,if you haven't tried doing them before come and have a go,you
can get a lot of great ideas and learn new techniques.

Well that's enough for now i think lol,hope to see you on the message board.Thanks for stopping by.

SENZ miss crafty tart 2009

They had a competition at the Crafty Tart stand,you had to make a doll out of your scrap stash.This was my second attempt as the first Tart was a little unstable poor girl and jumped of the table and fell apart...sad sad ...Miss Tart number 2 held it all together for the show hehe.
Haven't heard who won the prize yet,but there were some crafty dolls there.Sadly Miss tart managed to over spend so she has moved in with Kate from crafty tart and will be washing dishes until old age lol

winter sucks

I am so over winter believe me,We live in an old house that we rent for now anyway,its cold in the winter,drafty and dreary,it doesn't catch the sun and after weeks of working in a freezing cold factory and coming home to a miserably cold house i am sooooooooooo over winter,even my scrappbooking is suffering as all i wont to do is curl up in bed as soon as i can.I was looking forward to going to SENZ on Friday as i have never been before and its close to home this time,but i have a wonderful winter power bill to pay,its Large! so even senz has had the edge taken of it,whats the point of going to something like that unless you can shop boohoo Bring on summer PLEASE

innovation Mag

Following the great response we had to the colour features in issue 2, and a super suggestion from Trina we thought it would be great to run a small colour competition. It will work like this; Create a layout using colours that you normally wouldn’t combined and upload them to our forum gallery. Check it out Here
