Life is busy at the moment, so this is just a quick post to let my Longford Crafters group know that their section of my blog has been updated with information on our upcoming get together and the project / workshop we have planned.
Just a quick post to let those in my Longford Crafters group know that their section of my blog has been updated with information on our upcoming get togethers and the projects / workshops that we have planned!
Our next Longford Crafters get together will be held on Thursday July 7th from 9.30am. Jan is going to show us how to make these gorgeous Kaszazz Blended Sunset Cards!
After the workshop AND whilst we enjoy our scrumptous lunch, I've got a Watercolour Background Technique that I'll be demonstrating too! It should certainly be another fun-filled day so hopefully you'll be able to get there!

Today my Longford Crafters group had it's fortnightly get together and the very lovely Jan took us step-by-step through making these funky Window Greeting Cards that featured little Shrinky Dinks images in the windows!
Isn't this little Shrinky Dinks Owl just the cutest?
As usual, I changed the design up a little from the original by adding some white hand stitching around the outside of the coloured cardstock . . .
and I also added a stamped and hand cut greeting across the front too - a little on the fiddly side when it came to cutting it out but I love the look of each of them!
Thanks again Jan for such a great little project . . . I think everyone had a fantastic time!
Today was another fun-filled day of papercrafting with my fellow Longford Crafters! It's amazing how quickly a fortnight can pass!
With being away for the extended weekend I wasn't all that organised for today, so I just took along some card making supplies to get creative with! Everyone had been encouraged to bring along their punches so that we could all have a play with a wide range of different designs and models! What a fantastic range we had!
I completed one card and have another one half complete which I hope to finish tonight - here's the one I did finish using Marilyn's gorgeous embossing punch as well!
I came across these gorgeous Hibiscus flowers in my stash, which I haven't used for quite some time and thought it was the perfect compliment to the Basic Grey 'Lemonade' pattern papers!
As you can see, I couldn't resist adding a little hand stitched detail along with some white Kaisercraft Pearls for the blossom centres and a clear Mrs Grossman's greeting sticker too!
Thanks for a fantastic day girls - I'm really looking forward to finishing off my other card later tonight - I just love that design too Sandy! Thanks for sharing it!
Back in 2003, my local 'Longford Scrappers' group was formed after two lovely ladies - Kaye & Kylie - encouraged me to show them how to start scrapbooking. The group steadily grew with time and we've had many members come and go since then with 12 regulars attending at the moment.
'Longford Scrappers' has never been run formally or as a money-making venture. Sometimes we work on set projects as shown from various members, whilst at other times we just do our own thing. Some wonderful friendships have been formed and our fortnightly get-togethers allow us all to delve into our papercrafting passion on a regular basis. It's a day full of much fun, laughter and of course, lots of general chatter too!
Happy 6th Birthday 'Longford Scrappers' and to all who have made the group as strong and supportive as it is today!
Some of you might remember this tiny little altered Domino Mini Book I made a while back that features photos from one of our holidays to Tathra on the NSW south coast.
Well, today at Longford Scrappers, I showed everyone how to go about making one of these for themselves! A little sanding, painting, some metallic rubons, inside pages added and the whole thing embellished and VIOLA! A tiny altered Domino Mini Book ready and waiting for some teeny tiny photos!
Actually - I've added the photos to mine - they feature me enjoying my first 5 Christmas' and they only measure 2cm x 3cm, so like I said, they are teeny tiny!
I'd love to work out a little clasp to go on the side if I could - I was thinking of drilling into the side of the domino and gluing in a brad that I could attached some gold thread to so that I could tie it closed somehow - mmm - not sure on that one - will have to ponder it some more!
