I am back from scrap-a-ganza

Well i had a great time in Holland at SAG. I learnt loads of ideas and inspiration from all kinds of wonderful teachers. Just a shame that the whole event was not managed very well by scrapbook mate. For a large company i did really expect more.

My favourite was C D Muckosky who is just a loverly person and has such a fresh approach to scrapbooking. You can find her blog here to see what i mean. Once i have the instructions for the class i cant wait to put all her tips and ideas into action.

A few shots of the album track kit.

I loved the Rusty Pickle class by lance anderson. He is a very larger than life character. I had my eye on this class as i love the papers that can be coloured in or accented by a colour scheme. The papers are the popstar range which are just perfect for my boy LO's.

Here is the kit and a few of mums album as i couldnt start mine as i had a migraine in the class so just sat and people watched, lol. I also won one of lances prizes, i think i got the top prize, his design book. It is fab and i got it sighned as well.

My next favourite was the pretty in paint class by jen star. She is a loverly person with a gorgous new jersey accent, love it. We got to play with a embossed prima chipboard album and some loverly heritage feeling papers. We played with ranger paints, inks and the prima paintables plus dabbling with the prima build it stamp collection. I cant wait to finish this project as well.

There is alot of work still to be done on this but here are some of mum's pages and cover.

I also did the doodling for dummies class. I really want to be able to doodle. I love the idea of the LO we started and hopefully once i get to practice i will be confident in my doodling. We also got a cracking stencil to play with as well.

Here are the kit pics.

Next is the technique crazy class. I loved the techniques i learnt here. Embossing, using the h20's, water colour crayons, using spectrum ink pads and direct to paper inking. I cant wait to use these techniques on stamps and designs that are more suited to my style.

And lastly the Teressa Collins classes. It was just not possible to finish these classes in the hour sessions so hopefully in the next few weeks i will get to finish them properly.

Here are the pics

And now for the goody bag. It was a making memories travel bag aand i just love it. It came with a couple of mags and loads of papers and embellishments.

And now the shopping. I didnt go to made as i was worried about weight allowance. But most importantly i got my zutter round it all for my chipboard mini books.

That's it for now until i make a start on my projects

Take care
