Precious Little Angels Book Part 2

Hi Everyone,
Just got a few minutes up my sleeve and wanted to give you a quick post update of my little album pages. Still haven't got around to the decorating yet but at least getting the pages ready for that stage. Christmas has come to quickly for me and just don't have enough hours in the days to get anything done. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and safe New Year.

Precious Little Angels Book

Hi again,
I seem to be on a roll today Roger is out for awhile so I am getting to spend time in my scrappy room and want to get as much uploaded as I could. While I was in Geelong I got together with 2 very lovely ladies Brenda and Kathy who are married to 2 of  Roger's crew, they asked what I did to keep myself  busy during the days so I told them and they where both very interested in having a look so I had them over one afternoon to check the little room I had made for myself and from that moment on they have both become hooked, we started scrapping every Tuesday. They wanted to make a small album for them to take with them on their travels so I came up with this book mind you it's not so little though as I don't do little very well, I haven't had time to finish mine but Brenda and Kathy did. As I was showing them how to make theirs mine just kept getting bigger by the minute and so I haven't got mine anywhere near finished as yet but I start working on it later today. I am uploading a few pages today before they are embellished, I still need to get the photo's for it and as we all know it is not always easy to embellish without them. Hope you like what you are about to see.

Some of the materials I have used to create this book are papers by Webster and Prima,Kaiser cardstock to make the book pages, some very gorgeous trims/ribbon from Create On Ormond in Geelong, Kaiser wood,flowers and bling. There will be alot more once I get to choosing from my stash page by page. Each of these pages have been distressed with Tim Holtz inks.
pages c/d
On both these pages I have gone over the leaves and flowers with kindy glitz/ crystal lacquer, to highlight the fountain I have used a very favourite product of mine that unfortunately is no longer available call Plaid wicked white it is very similar to 3d kindy glitz.

More coming soon
Luv to all

Finally Home

Hi there to you all,

Well we are home at last and at least for a year, the best part of being home is we now get to see 2 of our grandchildren Sienna and her new baby brother Hudson who you will be seeing off and on in some of my projects to come. It took a week to unpack and clean up and then a week to unpack my scrappy boxes and change my scrappy room around but now it's all done and I can get to my computer and my desk, so I thought I better get to catching up with you all. I would also like thank the ladies who have left me comments I so luv getting them. 
I have been working on a few projects in Geelong alot of which are off the page projects , I have a few layouts in my head but need to get some photos printed. Now that I'm home I will be getting them finished the first one I am going to add today is one I am working on for our 2nd granddaughter Isla, we don't get to see her very often so I thought making her a special wall hanging of us and her Uncle Yannick , Aunty Alison and her cousins Sienna and Hudson and her Oma and Opa for her new room would be a good idea.
 Sorry for the blur I seem to be having a bit of trouble with my camera will have to go get it checked out can't be without the camera can we now.

Tour De Paris

Hello to all,

First of all I would like to say sorry for the delay in updating my blog. It has been a very bad month for us and we have had to make a couple trips back to Adelaide. Now I also have to start packing up to head home as Roger finally got a long term job in Adelaide Yeh about time. Anyway as promised I am uploading the Frame class I did at Create On Ormond in Geelong Victoria. I have also been try to keep myself as busy as I can so I have been working on a new book which is going to be upload sometime today or tomorrow.

For this project I used Textured Paste/a napkin which is the section at the bottom of the frame and added a old nail file for the self/fabric/paint/lace/beads/glass bottles which I filled with some herbs,shells and beads/I used the little cards from Kaiser for the little books on the shelf and an old domino I found in my stash and the verse is a rub-on. The book has been distressed all around the edges and lace added to each page.


Stroll in the Park Canvas Class

Yesterday I held my first class in Geelong and what fun I had. To the ladies that joined me yesterday at Create On Ormond I would like to thank you for your support I really appreciate it and enjoyed meeting you I hope you enjoyed the class and that it has given you some new ideas to try out for your  selves.  Again a very big thank you to Marisa for giving me this opportunity. Below you will find the completed canvas that we did in class. 
Making this canvas was a challenge as I don't have my scrappy room at my convenience I had to go shopping to get some products(what a shame)  and of course I got a few extra bits as we do just in case I might need them. To make this a little different I have traced and cut out the shape of a small box then pushed it though the hole and glued it into place.

That's all for now need to get back to creating have about 6 projects on the go at the moment and want to get them finished as we only have about 5 weeks left in Geelong, then heading back home and have some quality time with two of our grandchildren.

Keep on scrappin

A Special Thankyou To Marisa from Create On Ormond Geelong Victoria

Hi there,
While I have been in Geelong without my scrappy room it has been a little hard to get creative but thanks to Marisa my Miss MOJO is back and working with a vengeance. I met Marisa a few weeks ago now when I visited her lovely cottage scrapbook shop Create On Ormond, we got talking and found that we went to the same school in Adelaide (many years ago of course)!!! and in our conversation Marisa asked if I would like to do a couple of classes while I am in Geelong so I had to really reach out for Miss MOJO to come back to help me get creative. I came up with A canvas mix media/ scrappy for the first class which will be held at the end of August and I am really looking forward to doing this class. I am posting a snippet of the canvas for you to see and after the class I will post the full project I have also done a altered mix media frame with a book for a class in September and will do the same for this project as well. So I would like to give a big thank you to Marisa for the chance to teach at her lovely little nook.

Our Travel Brag Book

Hi there everyone,

Welcome back and hope everyone is staying warm. Here in Geelong I have been having trouble doing that but have worked it out that if I scrap all day until Roger gets home I don't notice how cold it is and I don't go outside unless I have to. I have been busy getting our little brag book of our 3 little angels finished along with a few other projects. Lately I seem to be loving off the page projects more than layouts and have been playing around with a few different ideas which I am in the middle of getting all materials need to get started asap. I will up load them in stages. I am heading to Sydney in August to catch up with all the lovely ladies at Fantasia Tarren Point and will be doing a few classes while I am there I cant wait I'm so excited to be going as it's been 12 months since I have been in Sydney.

Well enough chatting I need to get some work done as there are alot of project waiting for me.

Bye for now
Keep on Scrappin
Luv Ruth

Just need to add a little journaling and our three little angels 
are ready to travel the country side with Oma , Pepe and Storme.
Hi there,
Well I am very excited Roger and I are heading home this weekend and we will be meeting our very special grandson Hundson who now 4 weeks old we will also be spending time with our 2 precious granddaughters who we haven't seen for awhile so lots of pictures to take and then lots of scrapbooking to do. At the moment I am very into doing mini albums and books. I have started playing with one of Kaisers Craft albums at the moment and I thought I would give you a sneak peek at it. I am doing this of our precious and adorable grandchildren so I can take them with us as we travel around the country side. I am having fun so far so. Will be uploading as each stage progresses. I will also add to the next upload some of the products I have used.

Happy scrappin to you all
Luv Ruth
Our Grandchildren Travel book

New Arrival

I'm Happy to announce Roger and I are grandparents for the 3rd time. Joining our growing family is our 1st grandson Hudson Jack born 11th May 2012 at 2.50pm weighing in at 8lb 7oz. As we are in Vic at the moment cuddles haven't happened but have had photo's sent to us so as we can at least see our beautiful boy and that he is. Now I need to find some boy papers to start doing layouts other than pink cant wait. We are heading home the June long weekend for Sienna's 3rd birthday and of course to meet Hudson and get in alot of cuddles and kisses along with lots of photo's for me to scrap. To top of the trip our 2nd granddaughter and her mum Natasha will be there as well so that means lots of catching up and time spent all together. So look out for a whole lot of layouts on the way will have my head down and creativity working over time.

Take care

Luv Ruth

Hudson's Card

Our Little Angel

 Hi there Scrapper's
I was sitting in my scrappy room (well my travel one ) the other day and going though some papers and bits I brought with me to Geelong and came across this old Kaiser paper so I decided to sit and spend some time putting a layout together. It took me a little time to get it together as every idea I came up with I didn't have what I wanted with me so it was back to the drawing board. So here it is the end result. The photo is of our first precious granddaughter Sienna taken in 2009.
I did have fun creating this layout in the end.
Happy Scrappin Girls

Cherished Moment

This is a layout I came across which i had forgotten about as it was not put away where it should have been. The photo is of my son Yannick and his daughter Sienna I just fell in love with the shot and wanted to share it with you.


Flower shopping spree

Hi there,
 Well I know it's been awhile but have been on the move again we are now in Geelong VIC as Roger is building a couple of tanks here. Before wwe left home i went a little mad on buying flowers from my favourite flower site Wild Orchid so thought i would share with you what i got there is some bling and charms in this order as well.

Getting back on track

Hello fellow scrappers,

Well , firstly sorry for my tardiness I have been very busy travelling with Roger for work and when we did finally come home I ended up working with him doing 14 hour days and have only recently finished working. I now hope to get back into things with a passion as I have missed my Craft room immensely. While I have been home I finally had the time to get Sienna's frame book completed and started on Isla's and also made my Mother a very special 70th Birthday card book from the family, I have uploaded the card and a couple of layouts. Now that I have a little time I hope to get a few layouts done but have just found out we are on the road again, heading to Geelong Victoria for about 6 months as Roger has a job to do there. So here goes again I will have to pack up craft projects to take so as I can keep scrappin. Deciding what to take is a problem as I want to take it all and Roger is not in favour of that idea. I am hoping to teach a couple of classes while we are away and hopefully get to Sydney to catch up with the Fantasia girls and have my Tuesday morning coffee with Enice and if Im lucky I would like to do a couple classes while I am there. So last but not least, please keep popping back as I will endeavour to upload my completed project.

I am also in the process of adding a new tab to my blog called My Scrappy Rooms which will consist of photo's of each room I set up to scrap in while I am travelling with Roger.

So till next time stay safe and keep on scrappin.
Luv to all
