When Science and Art align - Scrapbooking Supplies in the Science Classroom

Dear Bloggers,

I am a Science teacher and recently my Year 4 class made Lego Robot Crocodiles.  I took in some of my craft supplies so the children could make food for their crocs and look at what they did.  So cute!!!

Tiffany's Valedictory Dinner using Crate Paper

Dear Bloggers,
I love this range of Crate Paper especially the black stripes.  It is so clean and stylish ....just perfect for my daughter's leaving school dinner with the parents.  The school likes to call it the very swish sounding 'Valedictory Dinner'.  We had the pre dinner drinks over at our house and Tiff amused me calling them the Val Pres.... Such a far cry from the official title' Valedictory Dinner Pre dinner drinks'. That's why the LO has the rather odd title 'Val Pres'.

Amy Being a Bridesmaid and Scrapmatts

Dear Bloggers,
Here is my DT reveal for Scrapmatts.  The August challenge is to use your favourite chipboard and to say why.  The large frame is mine as it hold so many photos and is very elegant.

Prima Mixed Media Doll Stamps ...Lorrena My All Time Favourite

Dear Bloggers,
Yes I love all the Prima Doll Stamps but Lorrena with her long dress is my absolute favourite.  Here I paired her with the 'Swing Dress Doll'.  I really love fiddling and just adding all those little pieces of bling and fun.

I couldn't decide if I liked them photographed against black or white or I so I have included both versions.  Each backdrop conveys a different mood and I love them both!!!

Here are suave sophisticated girls attending a regal ball.














Now here are the girls being bridesmaids.
(yes my imagination is a worry....but lots of fun all the same)

Prima Mixed Media Doll Stamps....Riley and Pockets

Dear Bloggers,

Yes here are still some more doll tags... that little girl in me is still burning strong.
Riley and Pockets are more for the young girls so I tried to use a fresher and bolder style.

I was showing some of my tags to some friends and I realised that so many of them were blue.  I tried for these little girls to work in a different colour palette and as you can see I was not very successful at all.  Oh well.....I just love those soft blues.....

Making Christmas Cards the Scrapmatts Way

Dear Bloggers,

Yikes did I mention the word 'Christmas' and it is only August!

I really like to make my own Christmas cards but it can be quite overwhelming if you leave it too late.  If you give yourself time it is so much fun.  I love using the Scrapmatts chipboard as it adds such texture and interest so quickly and voila another card is done.
