Happy Australia Day Everyone

Hello Everyone
It's Australia Day today and Imaginarium Designs is taking part in a blog hop. Some of the Ladies on their design team are doing posts today showing their work.

I decided to share of the my projects I have been doing over the past few months and have not go around to showing on my blog. I have been doing some card classes in my store and been sharing these projects on 3L Scrapbooking Adhesives Blog. If you click on the link you will find them all there along with another 10 projects. I have done a lot of them as step by steps tutorials. So if you have the time, then visit their blog

The first two cards were ones I did using Graphic 45's Once a upon a Time Collection. I used the July Cut Apart sheets as there was a big of a beach theme. It was a very hot week in Adelaide over 40 and I needed a trip to the beach. Couldn't make it, so making beach cards seemed to be the next best thing.
I though this one would make a nice male card. I used Imaginarium Designs chipboard for my title which I sprayed black.
This was a card for Halloween. It has a shadow box frame around it. To do this I used lots of foam squares from 3L. I put a full tutorial for making this card on their blog. The chipboard tree is one from Imaginarium Designs.
This is a wedding card I made for a young couple I knew. I love the simplicity of this card. It was quite easy to make but looks so classy. I used one of Martha Stewart's border punches and managed to make it fit my card. 

This is a page I did for Josh. I had some photos of him on the mad hatters ride at Disneyland and used some of Graphic 45's Halloween in Wonderland papers to do this page. The clock, corners and title are all from Imaginarium Designs.
I know none of my projects are very Australian, but this time last year, I was on a plane flying to CHA with Josh. We left Australia on Australia Day, so I am feeling a bit sad that I am not going to the states again.
I do have some exciting new to share with you all.
I am teaching at the Melbourne Expo being held early March. I hope to set up a link on my page for this as you can book into my class now. I am only doing one class a day and it will be an altered art project.
I am also teaching at the Brisbane Expo being held June long weekend. I will be doing three classes a day there.
For those of you who have been doing my Patchwork pieces, have you caught up with the news that thought the magazine has finished publishing the monthly project. I am still teaching them in my store and Seriously Scrapbooking is still selling the kits online. Kit 13 was released this month with kit 14 due mid February.
Scrapbook Creations has asked me to do another project for them that will take all year. This time is it mini tags in a frame. I have designed 60 tags to go into a frame. The first kit in ready and Seriously Scrapbooking has it for sale online. Scrapbook Creations will be showing a photo of the finished project on their website in February and in their March Magazine. I have the finished project in the shop and am getting lots of comments.
I am also doing an all year project with Australian Scrapbook Ideas. It will be starting in their first magazine this year. Seriously Scrapbooking will also be selling kits of this project.
So if you like my work then this is your year to do one of my projects in a kit form. I don't like writing instructions so having to do two magazines along with my projects for Graphic 45 and 3L each month is a major feat for me and shows how much I like sharing my work with you all.
I have met so many lovely people doing my kits all over Australia and now over seas with quite a few Ladies in New Zealand, USA and the UK doing my projects by kit form.
Also have some very exciting news this week, but can't share just yet. Will let you know as soon as I can.
Well this is quite a long post for me.
Have a Happy and Safe Australia day
Aussie Aussie Aussie oi oi oi
