Happy New Year!

Hello Everyone

Yeah I know....I have been slack yet again....I am really going to try this year - try for at least a weekly post!

Lots will be happening at Stick 'n' Giggle in 2011 - there will be more classes, more crop nights, more stock and of course more fun!

There will be another retreat - hopefully bigger and better than the last one - and as soon as I confirm dates - I will share it with you! Of course you do not have to be a scrapbooker to come along to retreat. If you just want a weekend away with lots of fun and laughs, then this is for you too!

There will also be a SALE!!!! More on this soon!

New stock has arrived: New October Afternoon and New Jilibean Soup! Also some of the old favourites are back in stock - Sassafrass Lass "Fawnd of you" and "Fawnd of you too" and more!

If you would like to call around, please just phone or sms and we can arrange a time suitable to us both!

PS Happy New Year! Stay Safe and I hope to see you soon!

Some recent layouts to share!

This is my Crazy Sister! My mummy is making the most gorgeous crochet flowers (which will be at the next Handmade Expo 26 June from 8am - 2pm at the Ipswich Racecourse!) and we were trying to get a nice photo to feature on the blog....Sandii just had to play and so I scrapped it using the new "Green at Heart" Basic Grey Papers.

Those that know me, know - I DON'T DO CARDS! These were a couple that I made from leftovers from my CT kit over at ScrapLounge using the Bo Bunny Mama Razzie range!

Sweet young love - another of Cinta and Mitch's adorable photos! I gave this layout a vintagy feel by using lots of distressing!

We are Family! I told you about our recent Family Reunion get together.....well this is a pic from the day. Nan, Pop and all the Grandkids (minus two)

And this is my beautiful Mummy! Doesn't the touch of yellow just make this layout POP! I love it and I love my mum! Check out: http://felicityflower.blogspot.com for more of Mum's great creations!

Sooo it has been a while since my last post hasn't it??? I have been so busy - and I know that is a terrible excuse! I will get better I promise....You want to know what I have been up to????

Well....since my last post I have:

  • Celebrated my Nana's 80th birthday!
  • Celebrated my Mum's birthday and of course Mother's Day.....
  • Had a family reunion
  • and done some serious 4wding!

Things have been pretty constant and I have been making the most of every minute I can.

The shop is going well! Tuesday night classes are a blast with all the regular girls: Susan, Erica, Kimbly, Heather and Adele....and sometimes Louise comes along too! I hope some more of you drop in soon! We are planning on building a fence on the side and Stick 'n' Giggle will have it's own entrance....that should be happening real soon! I will post all about it when it is done!

Well this time I promise it won't be so long between posts....Tomorrow I will share some pics of my recent layouts!

Happy Scrappin!

Here are the pics of the shop I said I would add....





So here it is - my new space! Stick 'n' Giggle is right at home in the rumpus room of my house. Floor space is that same as I had at the shop - it is just a different shape so it feels like there is more room. The workshop table has its' own place too under some nice bright fluro lights and the ducted air con keeps us nice and cool. We got to test it out last night with a full house at the card class girls (you know who you are!) I think everyone enjoyed the atmosphere and had a great time (other than Bonnie (the dog) wanting to go home with everyone and Dude (the other doggie) wanting to come and make cards with us LOL!

Within the next couple of weeks, John and I will be busy busy busy putting in a side fence in and moving some cars (I hope) so that the entrance will be totally separate from the house! I hope you will come and visit soon!

All set up....

Yeah I know....it has been a long time between posts yet again....I have just been so busy putting Stick 'n' Giggle back together - for a while it looked a little like Humpty Dumpty after he fell off the wall *sigh*....I will take some pics tomorrow and let you all see how spacious and roomy the new look SnG is and hopefully you will come and visit the store at home!

I am even hoping to have the remainder of my Prima order arrive this week - that means all new yummy flowers and the papers from the new ranges that hadn't yet arrived - it also means new BLING!!!!!!! I can't wait to see it all!

I miss you all so much! Keep your eyes out for the remainder of April and May calendar coming soon!

Happy Scrappin!
