Daisy Tutorial

I used a small and a medium daisy punch. You could cut out a template if you do not have the punches. The paper I used was printed on one side however you can use double sided paper or cardstock.
Ink, pearls for the centres and foam squares to stick together or glue if you prefer.

Cut two medium and one small daisy. Ink the the edges and the back. the small flower will need inking all over the back.

Pinch and push up the petals on all the flowers.
Stack the two large petals on top of each other, off setting them, right side up with foam squares. Place the small flower reverse side up on top. Place a pearl into the middle of the flower.
Below is the finished flower with a flower made from double sided paper.

Sara did this layout using cardstock to make the flowers.
Thank you for looking.

Scrap That colour contest

Scrap That have a colour contest until the 15th September. the colours are pink, light blue and light grey/brown. The Scrap That link is at the right.

The colours are not what I usually use however I was happy with the end result. As I don't as yet have the September kit I had to improvise with the papers. As we do not have a scrapbook shop in the area I ended up making the pink paper on the computer.

Successful Retreat

The weekend weather was very wet and windy but this did not have an impact on a great Scrapping Retreat. Ten ladies attended for the weekend with two ladies braving the conditions and coming down from Batlow for the Saturday afternoon workshop. This was an off the page canvas presented by Jan Agnew. This workshop was very well received by all the ladies.

Ladies travelled from Jindabyne, Wagga and Queanbeyan as well a local. Three workshops were held as part of the retreat with an optional techniques workshop.
The Friday night workshop was devised by Kaye Snow who unfortunatly was attendeing another workshop at the South Coast. I am hopeing that Kaye will terach some of the wornderful techniques she has learnt using Tim Holtz products at our next retreat.
I have started organising the workshops for the next retreat even though it be some months until we have the retreat. This is due to bookings of quilting groups, the school holidays, some tripping around and two retreats that I will be attending and Christmas.
Happy scrapping
