Last weekend I took a whirlwind trip to Christchurch with my BFF. I taught a class at the SCRAP AWAY retreat, with her as my teacher aid, and of course caught up with a few of my other amazing friends from around the country. It was a super fun with lots of laughter, great food, a bit of creativity (for me – loads for others!) and NO sleep 🙂
Just wanted to share the three LO’s I taught in my class, with products from Crate Paper (of course!):
I also had prepared a page kit with instructions for 3 LO’s which were sold prior to the retreat. Here are the LO’s for that, using American Crafts products!
Phew 🙂 THANK YOU for reading all the way down here! If you did – you will now find out the winner of my RAK from a couple of weeks ago! SUE BULL – you win something scrappy from the Crazy Monday Shop! Congrats!

Well whaddayaknow! A second blog post this month! I’m on a roll!!
I have another LO to share that I did at AE, with the Crazy Monday May kit. I decided to try and use gel medium for the first time. It’s a little different to texture paste that I use ALL the time; gel medium comes out almost clear. On the LO below I first used it clear with one mask. I then mixed the gel medium with a pink mist, and got a lovely pink colour and a second mask. The cool unexpected effect was when the colour got mixed with the FIRST, clear gel medium – it created another colour; peach/yellow. I am quite stoked with the result, and it all worked well with the colours in the kit. I finished it off with some dots made with my gelatos.
Then, a LO for an AMAZING sketch, that I found on Creative Scrappers. Love it. And the DT examples are all mind-blowing. Honestly.
I found it a bit tricky to take a photo of the LO to be honest, as I have a little sequin pocket thingie going on there 🙂
That’s it for today. I’m actually off for another retreat, in Christchurch – but only for a day and a half – Saturday and Sunday. My lovely friend Adrienne is putting on a whole weekend of fun starting tomorrow.
I will be teaching a 3 LO class on Saturday, using Crate Paper. Will share the LO’s next week, but how about a sneak?

So this is new – blogging at the BEGINNING of the month! Shock horror! Maybe I will even fit in TWO posts this month??? Best not to promise anything though 🙂
You might know that I spent last weekend at the Autumn Escape down in Taupo. Always a fabulous event. This time around I didn’t do any classes, which meant I had a lot of time to scrap, chat, go for spa’s, and just generally chillax. Awesomesauce I tell ya! I got 12 LO’s done in total, which I’m wrapped about.
Can’t show all of them here today, but I can share a few. Which is exciting!!
First though, my LAST LO for Sketchabilities. It’s been a great DT to be on, Karan’s sketches are soooo inspiring and they have pushed me in all sorts of directions. Which is fab.
I have used the Crazy Monday March kit for this LO!
I created a sketch for the AE retreat attendees, the top three won prizes from Crazy Monday Kits. This is my example LO where I have used mainly the April kit from Crazy Monday:
My next LO is from a sketch over at Creative Scrappers. They have a Birthday Bash happening over there, and there are 12 lovely sketches to play with! Again, I’ve used the Crazy Monday March kit, plus a few things from my stash!
The next LO was made after a Studio Calico Sketch, and again I have mostly used Crazy Monday April kit – both the scrapbook & the PL kit:
And then – a few LO’s I did “Just Because”. Now THAT doesn’t happen often!!
PHEW! Sorry about the photo bombing right there! If you have made it all the way down to the end of this post – let me know your favourite from the LO’s above. One lucky commenter will get something scrappy from the Crazy Monday Shop! Thanks for visiting and happy weekend!!!
