8 Beautiful Projects for Brisbane June 2019

Hello Everyone
I am going to share all my projects for the Brisbane scrapbook and Papercraft & art Expo June 6th-9th 2019.
I am delighted to be teaching at the expo along with a friend of mine and fellow Imaginarium Designs Team member - Sonia Thomason from Perth.
We will also be having a stand selling lots of wonderful product and kits. Sonia and myself will be teaching 12 classes over the 4 days. Sonia has 4 amazing projects to teach and I have 8, so we both are going to be very busy. There is a post on Imaginarium Designs and Seriously scrapbookings blogs showning her projects. 
I am going to share my projects here on my blog for you to see.

Thursday 6th June Session 1: Jane's Sun Kissed Layout.


Join me and make a delightful layout in the beautiful navy, cream, and peach colour scheme of Graphic 45’s Sun kissed paper collection. The page features gorgeous images of children at the beach (be prepared for some fussy cutting) and is finished off with floral accents, metal embellishments and chipboard. You will receive enough papers to create a second page.
Cost of Class and kit $45.

Thursday 6th June Session 2: Jane's Male Mini Album.



This gorgeous little mini album will be perfect as a keepsake. I have made mine to celebrate my late father. This album has fold-out flaps, pocket and more. Plenty of space for photos which can be added after the class. I will have a selection of chipboard titles for you to choose from. Due to time constraints you may not finish this album in the class but you will be given detailed instructions with step by step photos so you can finish it afterwards. The album is about 5 inches square.  
Cost of class and kit $50.


Friday 7th June Session 1: Jane's Mini School Album & Caddy.



Join me and learn how to make the cutest  little caddy box, which you will decorate in the class. The caddy is designed to hold a mini concertina album created to hold a passport sized photo of a child’s school life from their first year to their last. Due to the time constraints of this class you may not get the album made on the day (Detailed instructions are provided so you can finish it later).
Cost of Class and Kit $55.


Friday 7th June Session 2: Jane's Follow your Dreams.



I have been making patchwork pieces for many years and I have created a special set just for the expo. Join me to find out how addictive and fun patchwork pieces are!
This particular set is specially displayed as a free standing frame on a canvas. Perfect for any special occasion like a wedding, engagement, birthday or a special person.
Cost of Class and Kit $55.

Saturday 8th June Session 1: Jane's My Favorite Photos.



I love this layout and the photo doesn't it justice. The layout features photos of my grandson. Using a special chipboard frame from Imaginarium designs, you will learn how to add a rustic finish using embossing powders. This frame is a great way to add multiple photos to your layout. I will guide you through the layout step by step and share with you just how I design and create my layouts, 
Cost of Class $55.
  
Saturday 8th June Session 2: Jane's Colour your World Eclectic mini Album.

You will receive everything you need to create an interactive mini album, with a flap pocket and more.  I have chosen a selection of charms, metal embellishments, ribbons and chipboard for you to add to your album and I will show you how to achieve a patina effect on your metals and use oxides inks on your chipboard . Please note that you will not get the whole album made in the class. Detailed photos and instructions will be included for you to complete the album in your own time after the class. 
Cost of Class and Kit $55

Finally some New Kits - About Time

Hello Everyone.
I know it has been a while but I am still around, teaching classes from home and working on more kits. I am also teaching on a cruise ship in February - there are limited spaces if anyone would like to join me. You can contact me if you want to know more, I will do a post next week with more information on the cruise and the other teachers and what I am planning on teaching.
 Today was a very hot Adelaide summer day and Kate and my youngest grandson Joey (9 months) spent the day with me in front of an air-condition.
I have been busy over the past few weeks kitting up a heap of new projects, writing the instructions and inking and painting some of the embellishments. Some kits are old favourites that I have taught at Expos but just never got around to kitting and putting on line.
Kate and Joey have put them all online and they are ready to go.
Just click on the link to find them.
Janes New Kits - they are under "New in Store" on our website.
So there are three new card kits and 11 new layouts.
Next week Kate and I with Joey's help will be doing the finishing instructions for the Raining Cats and Dogs book and box, so we are hopping to have it ready before Christmas then you can do it over the New Year Holidays. I will be in touch with everyone who has placed a pre-order.
Here are some of the new kits ready to go.

Controlled Mayhem to Dazzle and Delight Kit $19.
 
 Happy Days at the Beach $18


 Happy Memories $24




Make a wish on a Starfish $19


School Days $17

Once upon a Spring Time Double Layout $28.
 
 
Christmas Magic Cards $25
 
 Safari pop out Cards $25
 
  Nature's Sketch Book Cards $26


We have limited amounts of some of these kits due to the papers used being discontinued. So if you are wanting a particular kit then don't leave it too long before ordering.
I have another 6 kits nearly ready to go, they include more layouts, some patchwork kits and some more project life style layouts.
so I hope you find one or two kits you like and have the perfect photos for.
thanks for looking and see you soon.

Finished Junk Journal Page

Hi Everyone.
 
Here is my finished Junk Journal page. I will be teaching this at Cumberland Park Community Centre this Saturday 24th at 10am-2pm.
You will get to play with stamps, Lindy's stamp Gang sprays and more. I had a lot of fun making this page and can't wait to share it with you.  I have been making junk journals for a while now, but rarely get to teach them. Now as I am not working full time and have more time to play, I have decided to make a new journal and teach it each month. This months page is called "Time Flies when you're having fun. You will get a stamp set included in your "Junk" kit to use on your page. 

 
I will be supply all the "junk" for this page. You also won't need a journal for this class as each month you will make a page using different paper for your foundation pages, we will be binding it all together at the end.
I have a list of mixed Media items you can bring, if you don't have them, then you can share some of mine or purchase on the day.
Please bring to the class following items if you have them.
White pigment gel pen, + black sharpie or fude ball pen.
Stabilo pencil.
Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays.
Black Archival Ink Pad.
Baby wipes and paper towel.
Larger junk mail catalogues ( for working on) eg Harvey Norman, Woolworths or larger Foodland.
Gel Medium and Gel Glue.
Double sided tape.
Any clock stamps and a selection of your favourite detailed, background and image stamps and acrylic blocks.  You will receive a stamp set as part of your "Junk". Remember you can use my stamps if you don't have any of your own.
Acrylic blocks for your stamps if you need them.
Basic scrapbooking kit.
This is a four hour workshop to be held on the 24th February at 10am-2pm.

At the Cumberland Park Community Centre 388-390 Goodwood road. Cumberland Park.

Cost of Class $20 + $12 for "Junk"  which also includes a stamp set.

I also want to share a layout I did for Imaginarium designs this month. We had to do a project for February featuring the colour red. I chose to do a layout on Anna dancing at her big sisters wedding.
Anna loves dancing and has no inhabitations about what people think of her. Whilst this can be a hindrance in some areas of her life. It leaves her free to do what ever she enjoys doing with abandonment. She danced the night away with everyone and anyone who would join her on the dance floor.
 
This is quite a simple layout and one we could do Saturday 24th in the afternoon after the junk journal class if anyone is interested in staying on. The cost of this class and kit would be $25
 
 
Love the look on Anna's face.
 

Some of the detail on my layout.


If you have any questions about these two classes or want to book in, please ring me on 82771298.
hope you can join me.

So How Far Have I got in 2 Days

Hello Everyone
So my Wednesday started out so well.
To refresh - blank page, high hopes, great expectations.


 
I Went from This!
 

 
To this,  quite quickly.

 
Then to this, when I remembered I had to make 300 Sausage Rolls. Then tea, the dishes and Bed
So that was my Wednesday done and dusted!
 
Day Two - Thursday.
 
 
 Spent the morning holding Violet  while her Mum did some house work and made cheesecakes.

 
Played with trains with Harry and watched a bit of Toy Story 2. Harry doesn't like sitting for too long so we didn't get to see the end. 

 
Then home to work. Visitors for tea, then back to play. By bed time I had this much done.
Very happy with my foundation page for my junk to sit on.
 

 Detail of the stamping and colouring on my bottom right page.
Please let me know what you think.
Day 3 - Friday
 Anna's birthday today - so off to Marion for the day shopping, then having the rest of the kids for tea. Have a pile of so called "Junk" sorted to add to my layout, will post some photos of the finished page and when I am teaching it tomorrow.
thanks for looking
Jane

Junk Journal Page 1

Hello Everyone
Today I am starting my new Junk Journal. There is something exciting about a fresh empty page, the posabities are endless, where do I start?

Some of the "Junk" I found today, I think it is a Japanese book and the tiniest jigsaw puzzle I have ever seen.
The page is for my first class on the 24th February at the Cumberland Park Community centre.

Will post some more images as the page comes together.
Thanks for looking.

What I have been working on today!

Hello Everyone
I am teaching tomorrow Friday 9th of February at Cumberland Park Community centre and I still have some room in my classes for anyone in Adelaide wanting to join me.


First up I have a Graphic 45 Layout Class. You can bring a 4x6 inch photo for the layout out if you like or add it to your page later on. I have used some papers from Penny's Paper Doll Family and a couple of papers from two other Graphic 45 collections. The chipboard is from Imaginarium Designs. I had the perfect photo for this layout, its one taken of my four daughters mucking around and is a favourite of mine. I will put the layout into a kit once I have taught it. Cost of the class is $16 + $20 Kit. The class is at 10am till 12.30pm. Please ring me on 0416053688 or 8277 1298 to book in.
 
 
Second class is my Graphic 45 Project Life Style Double layout. I have designed these layouts to use all the those small photos you get when you buy a school photo bundle. There is room for 13 photos over two pages.  This should be enough to display your child's entire school life, showing how he/she has changed over the years. I really enjoyed designing these pages, they came together beautifully.
The class is at 1pm-4pm and is $16 + $22.  Please ring me on 0416053688 or 8277 1298 to book in.
Not sure if this will end up in a kit, please let me know if any of you want one.
Still have another three projects to do for classes on Saturday and Monday, so back to work.
Thanks for looking
Jane
