Hey Everyone in Scrappyland

Well now we are almost in December
I have written some posts over the last few months but for some reason they have gone to the never never and didn't post...I must admit sometimes technology and myself just don't go together that well

I did write some posts about the Layouts and Projects I have created for 3 Quarter Designs and also our monthly now we will do a quick catch up and see if this one works
below is the goodies for DT (3Quarter Designs and some of my random layouts etc from the year)

So here is a crash photo catch up on them - if you like the look of the papers go check out the shop

Above is a Layout and Venetian mask from the Renaissance Collection

Above 2 layouts are from the Melody's Song Collection

The above Layout and Saw Project are from the His World Collection

The above Layout and Balloon are from the Dreamers Flight Collection

The above projects are from the Golden Twilight Collection

The box and Mini Album is from the Industrial Chic collection

The packs of goodies from 3Quarter Designs is always full of amazing goodies and plenty of papers to create quite a few layouts of projects....these are always a great option to take away on holiday as all you need is tape and glue and your away laughing

Some of our Monthly Classes and random others you might like to catch up on 

These are just a few of the layouts from this year

This year has also bought us a New Grandson Denver today he is a week old...I will post some pics sometime before Christmas when he feels like being a little more photogenic

I hope this Christmas brings you joy and Happiness and you look forward to another busy scrappy year in 2020
For us there will be some changes in the way we run classes and get togethers
More on that at a later date

Thank you for your support over the last year

Until we meet again
Take Care and

Sorry Everyone in Scrappyland I seem to have been missing for a little while
but its called "Life" and whether we like it or not ....Life still happens
There is only a certain number of hours in a day  and sometimes the days slip into weeks and weeks into months etc etc

I do think about the Blog a lot but just never seem to find the time to come and write my ramblings
I will try and be steps

Anyway what a year we have had
Our gorgeous little Grandson Bentley was born in April - yep almost a year old now - crawling
Our super cute Grandson Spencer is 17 months old and a real little charmer
Our amazing Miss P is almost 2 and a half  - is a right little chatterbox and likes to try and do everything herself....."P will do it " but she does know when shes beat and asks for help

But onto more interesting things....
Imagine If
Some of you might have seen I have been asked to join the Imagine If  (3 Quarter Designs) DT
this is an honor and I was completely surprised when was asked
I must admit though it is fun just getting papers and being able to play for no reason than to play
and the papers actually make it very easy to create some fun projects and layouts
If you haven't visited their store yet online then follow the link I guarantee you will love the papers and chipboard embellies  - if there is anything you want made I'm sure they will try their best to accommodate
You will have to wait just a little longer to see what I have come up with for them but do check out the paper packs - you will be in for a treat

Monthly classes
Last year I tried to change things around a bit to make it easier for Ladies to come along to class without using up all their weekends so made it 2 classes 1 day every 2nd month.....that didn't really work either so we are now back to 1 class 1 day and  the following are the dates up to Sept and we will see what happens after that

April 6th,  May 18th,  June 22 and Sept - not sure of date yet

April 7th,  May 19th, June 23 and Sept.....

SENZ  19th - 21st July   Auckland  I will be teaching 7 classes from layouts, mini album, to cards

Mega Scrap Day
Dunedin Only  August 3rd  (13 of the 24 places have already been booked - please let me know if interested via email to

This months class is 2 layouts  1 is Pinks and Burgundy colours and the other is more neutral more boyish but easily could be a female one....just by adding a few different items or removing some
The papers used are from Primas  Georgia Blues  and Poetic Rose collections

this comes as a complete kit with both layouts - cost is $50 for class or kit
if you are interested in purchasing the kit but cant make it to class the courier fee is $7 for Residential and $9 for Rural - Please let me know in either instance via email above

Last month we created a  Flip Calendar that after the year is over can turn into a mini album with a couple of quick "snips"
there is a few of these kits left if interested again the cost is $50 the papers we used were Kaisercraft Wandering Ivy and it is a heap of fun to make

Ok well that's about it for this installment as I go and prepare the boys for the 2 mins silence for the terrible tragedy last Friday that happened in our little country

But I will leave you with some special  pics of 3 very special little people - note who was not invited to the Teddy Bears Picnic

             Bentley                Spencer             Penelope

Until Next Time
Take Care and Happy Scrappin'

Hey Everyone in Scrappyland

Well what a weekend
away with good friends to an awesome weekend of classes with Di Garling
learning new tips and tricks - yep can definately teach an old dog new tricks
we took 3 of the 6 classes on offer and all  enjoyed every minute

So now back to reality and that reality is that SENZ is just round the corner
the classes go live on the 6th June at 5pm for the VIPs and then for the next few days after until general sale....whose coming to play?
I have created 6 different classes for this year  from mini album (not really that mini) boys layouts, girls layout, mixed media and even a special mdf project
loved making all these classes and cant wait till end of July to share and create with you

A little in the life of Robbi
Emma has had her baby boy Bentley and he is just darling growing like a little sprout and getting cheekier by the day lol
Miss P is also growing up chattering away to herself and hoping i think that we understand her every now and then words happen that we can recognise .... still not Granma will come....might have to bribe her with lollies etc
Spencer well hes just starting to crawl so is not going to be still for long once he really gets going
he has the most infectious laugh and smile with big blue eye to match

Trevor and I are away for a few days R&R then back and into the chaos that is SENZ 
but in the meantime we have another class coming up on the 16/17th June
layout and then cards all in the same day....looking forward to playing again lol

this is the layout sneaks and it is using the new release from Prima Havana
love the soft colours and Miss P has come along to help me create this beauty

6 different cards in this kit from happy Birthday to Sympathy so a good variation

If you would like to come along to class or purchase a kit they are $40 each (both is $75) and courier if required. Just email me on to let me know

Ok Ladies well thats it for this post
Hope you all keep warm and scrap up a storm

Hey Everyone in Scrappyland.....

Welcome to my monthly ramblings for February
This month sees the new concept for classes with both Dunedin and Balclutha classes being
a combined in the morning we are having a layout class from 9.30 till 12.30ish and in the afternoon from 1 till 3.30 we will be making cards.....then in April it will be reversed although the times may be tweaked a little.
If you would like to note the class dates for this they are for you
(1st date is Dunedin and 2nd date is Balclutha)
17th - 18th February
14th - 15th April
16th - 17th June
18th - 19th Aug
13th - 14th Oct
1st - 2nd December

Mega scrap day in Dunedin only will be on the 4th August
and I am hoping to add a few crop days in there as well but that will be down the track

This is the classes for this month and if you would like a kit or come join us at class these might spark your interest
1st is the double layout with little folders for adding photos and journaling for each month
to record your moments for 2018 - a wonderfully fun layout but you would have to be religious in getting your monthly photos and adding them - failing that it would be a great holiday layout
with plenty of room for both the little photos and tickets along with plenty of space for journaling
this shows some of the little folders -
cost of the kit is $40 and if required to be couriered please add $7 for courier or $9 for rural post

Next is the Card kit for this month - it has 6 easy cards to make (well I think they are easy)
there is different themes however you can make them whatever you would like - Sympathy, Birthday, just a simple Hello
I have only given you a sneaky of 4 of them at the moment
cost of the kit is $40 and if required to be couriered please add $7 for courier or $9 for rural post
If you would like to join us in class then please let me know by Friday at the latest or if you would like to have the kits couriered they will be sent on Monday 19th
Combined cost for both is $75 either for class or sent (add courier fee for sending)

In amongst the mess of kitting and creating for both class and camp and SENZ there has to be a little fun time with the grandies......thought you might like an update
Master Spencer is laying down the law.....Arms folded and giving me the "look here Grandma"
 and Miss Penelope has decided that Pops should by her a jetski....think she can spend a little more time practising on land

Musings.....Last night I got to go to Antenatal with Emma (I was token Jayden for the night as he was a bit crook)  I must admit things have changed a lot since I had the my 3 babies
no more breathing techniques - we know how to breathe
no more lying flat on the bed to birth the baby - hands and knees or swiss ball now used
no more Doctors - they seem to be on the outer  Midwives are used for everything
But....watching the "Dads to be" faces when certain things were mentioned was worth the trip in itself
and I did enjoy the coffee and chockie bikkie at half time lol
Ok that's it for this post - lets know if you are interested in the kits above or coming to play at class
Until next time

Take Care and

Hey Everyone in Scrappyland....

Its ME!
I'm back...feels like I've been on one of those sabbatical's but no not really just me being slack
so please do forgive me...I do intend to be better at blogging all the  goodness that is happening in my scrappy world and outside it
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got the opportunity to take copious amounts of photos so you have a good stack for the upcoming themes and collections that the Companies are all showcasing at Creativation 2018 (wouldn't you just love to be there!) some of these are absolutely mind blowing and I cant wait to see them in real life
I have been working away on the SENZ projects and I'm hoping this year you will love them as much as I am....there is OTP goodies and of course trusty ever layouts and like I said with all the new collections coming out I'm sure all the Tutors are busy beavering away
This year after a lot of thinking and more thinking I have come up with a plan to change the way I run classes down here and in Balclutha - this will hopefully be easier for Ladies to come along to class (and of course to purchase the kits) by having the classes only once every 2 months - roughly but having a full day so running 2 classes one in the morning and one in the afternoon
It hopefully might mean Ladies can find one day every 2 months rather than 1 day every month
same amount of work but am looking to increase the numbers that come along to "play"
so most classes will be a layout in morning and cards in afternoon or vice versa
the dates are as follows if you would like to pop these in your calendar - dates shown for Dunedin (Balclutha classes are the following day)
17 Feb, 14 Apr, 16 June, 18 Aug, 13 Oct, 1st Dec
along of course with the Mega Scrap day that will be run on the 4th August
and I am also hoping to run a couple of crop days and a mixed media day along the way

Ok so yesterday I turned the big ...... (well a girl never tells....aye?) on sunday we had a wonderful family dinner and got to play with these 2 little squirts...
Aren't they just gorgeous?
Miss Penelope is now 14 months and Master Spencer is now 3 months old
and of course we have Emma's new baby arriving sometime early April....many of you will know Emz from working on the stall with Sharon at SENZ or even just from some layouts that she has been showcased on.  (she's having a little Boy so Miss P still reigns supreme lol)
Yep I'm gushing...they are just so cute but of course I'm a tad biased

Ok well that's a quick "Hello" from me at the moment
watch for the emails in your inbox around the 8th or so of Feb for the 1st class for the year
as I look forward to a very busy year
Until then
Take Care and Happi Scrappin'

Hey Everyone in Scrappyland

Yes I know....Again I have been absent....but I do have a great excuse!
her name is Penelope and she is awesome! (and the apple of Pops eye....shes already got him wrapped round her tiny little finger!)
  but that's enough time wasting now we have to get down to scrappy business lol (I'm pretty sure sometime in the future you will see plenty more of her!)

So life....well we have sold our house and are on the move however the takeover date for new house isn't for 5 weeks after we leave our present one so we are going to be living out of suitcases and boxes in a motel ...... little does the owner of the motel know that the 2nd bedroom i requested will be full of scrapping boxes, my computer and printer, plastic bags, tins, even a cricut and cuttlebug
WELL A GIRLS GOTTA SCRAP! (and get ready for SENZ)
I hope you are all ready for the class sales that happen early next month you are going to be totally spoilt this year with so many different classes and tutors on offer you are really going to have a ball!
Sharon and Emma will again be on my stall with lots of wonderful Kits and goodies to complete any project you might like to try. Trevor and Keri will be in the class again to help and guide.
I have a wide variety of classes planned this year so hopefully you will come along and have some fun in them. Check our the site if you havent already
Anyway since we last spoke we have had a couple of classes and this weekend we have card class
so I am looking forward to the much needed distraction from packing.

The cards are 6 in total and are covering a wide variety of themes from baby to male to birthday etc
if you would like to grab one of these kits let me know (cost is $45 couriered and if rural delivery is required add another $5) email me on or message me on facebook

Our Beautiful Daughter got married in February to her longtime partner Jayden and the wedding and day couldn't have been more perfect. Emma planned everything and I must say she did a really amazing job and thought of everything....she never once thought the day would need a contingency plan as she only ever imagined her wedding day as a beautiful warm summer day and that's what she got! Her dress was beautiful as was she we are very very proud of her and all she has achieved

and a sneaky photo of some special ladies......Sharon and Noeline

Have an amazing lots of scrapping, eat lots of junk food and drink lots of good wine
thats my plan lol

Till next time 

Happi Scrapping 
and Take Care xxx
