Lynne Herbert Card Class

At the Hyden Retreat this time we had a new tutor Lynne Herbert who held a card worshop
which involved stamping, using cuttlebug and sewing and coloring in with Copic Markers was very daunting to start with especially the coloring in but once you got the hang of the blending of the colors it was gr8 was very fiddly but liked them that much stayed up late at the motel to complete all four cards that we were showed. Love the result hope she is able to teach more cards thanks Lynne.

Hyden Retreat

This weekend myself ,my mum Sharon, Dee & Linda once again attended the Hyden Retreat run by Karen Smith & Scrappin Outback . Once again we had a gr8 time with many new faces and old faces lots of ideas and inspiration in which Karen always seems to be able to outdue herself Gr8 Job Karen yet again.

Now for the double page layouts

These are the last of my retreat layouts. Linda, Kylie and Dee are off to the Hyden retreat this weekend so stay tuned for the next update coming soon..
Wave rock layout using cream cardstock with basic grey origins papers and embellishments

Me all battered and bruised after having all 4 of my wisdom teeth out. Scrapped using Basic grey wisteria range

This beachy layout was done with Kaisercraft papers with kaiser embelishments

Red cardstock, kaiser craft paper and a touch of Alli Patterson

Last of my single page layouts

Last but by no means least Alexs' bday I scrapped this using basic grey lime rickety range

This layout would probably be my favourite from the weekend. 1. I like the colours 2. I left a big blank space which I don't normally do and 3. I stamped directly onto the layout which usually ends up looking like a disaster or out of place but this time it works
