On saturday we had a great day at my first big all day crop for ages, everybody said they had a great time and lots stayed right to the end at 9.30pm...kept going by a fish and chip supper!!

As a result I have been asked to make these crops a regular thing and have today booked the next one for Sunday 22nd August.  For the girls that came along Saturday note that this one is on a Sunday and this is so we can have Imagine That papercrafts shop come to visit us.  Its just makes life alot easier for Emma to come on a day that the shop is closed and it benefits us as she can bring alot more with her than she could if the shop was open. The time is from 9.30am to 9.00pm...but you are free to come and go whenever, I am aware being Sunday some girls have to go to work the next day. The cost is still £10.00 that inc free tea/coffee/cakes etc all day.  We ordered a take away for people stopping all day and will do so again but it might not be fish and chips this time as I am pretty sure my shop does not open on sunday evenings so it will probably be pizza or chinese. You could bring extra food yourself, of course, if you dont fancy either of those. The other thing to mention is that it is not at the hall I had is now at St Marys church hall Benfleet,  which is just a few houses down from me if you have been to classes at my house before or just around the corner from the WRVS hall I had on Saturday. I am unable to book that hall in August so I am trying this other one instead.   Although its a crop if you are a cardmaker you are more than welcome as well....lots of the girls were doing cards as well as scrapping....everyone is welcome.

Lastly, I have to ask for payment when booking as I need to pay the church up front, so if you want to have a place reserved for you then email me on and I can tell you where and how to send the money.

For those that normally come to me for scrapbook classes Augusts kit will be there on that day, I have run out of weekends again in August and the last one is BH so I know alot of you will be busy or away still on hols.

Think thats all for now, let me know if you need anymore info.

Julys Kit

This months kit is the new My Little Yellow Biycle "pack your bags" papers, you get enough papers etc to complete a double and a single layout.  There are some stickers suitable for America but there are lots of others you can use as well.  Even if you wanted to scrap some photos of a holiday you did not fly to you can adapt what I have used. 

If you are coming to the All day crop I will have this months kit there for you, if you dont want to do it on that day thats fine you get instructions inside the kit.  I cut my title on the circut machine, which I will have with me if you want to cut yours there to take with you. The cost of the kit this month will be £10.00

Photos sizes:  Double 2 6x4 { 1 land and 1 port}, 2 4x3 land, 6 3x2 { 5 land and 1 port}
                     Single 1 6x4 port and 1 4x3 land

Both the layouts have space to move things around so dont worry to much about measurements being exact.

The postcode for the hall is SS7 5HE , if you have a sat nav or email me for directions.  Dont forget to bring your lunch and whatever else you want to work on.  I will have my die cutting tools etc with me as well as a small sales table and some of the girls are bringing unwanted stash to sell you will be in with a chance to catch a bargin!! There is free tea/coffee/cakes etc all day and a crop would not be complete without a raffle!!

As I have had so much interest in this crop I am already looking to book another date for the next one...maybe in a larger hall still in Benfleet.  I have already arranged for a friend to bring their shop with them so there will be lots of goodies for you to buy....just got to tie up dates etc, if you want to know details email me and I will let you know when its all sorted.

Mega Crop day and My Minds Eye Jack and Jill

Not had a great amount of time recently for doing my own pages but I had these papers and die cuts laying on the table and after having a browse through some old photos, I found the perfect ones to go with the colours in the cardstock. As like alot of my old photos they don't compare with the digital ones we take now but they are special still and need to be scrapped.

The layout is completely from the My Minds Eye Jack and Jill collection, I just added a few flat back pearls for the birds eyes and flower centres.

If you live locally to me I have a few spaces left for an all day crop on Saturday 24th July...its a mega crop until 9.30pm in the evening.  To be held at the WRVS hall Benfleet, I will be there from 9.00 am, the cost is £10.00 and I will be providing all the necessary cakes and biscuit yummy's and cold and hot drinks. I will also have my cricut and my sizzix dies etc for you to use.You just need to bring some lunch and we are ordering some sort of take away for the evening { not inc in the £10}or you could bring extra to keep you going. A great way to have a finish your pages day or maybe you are just about to start something and would love a whole day to really crack on with a project.  I will have my July kit with me, its Little Yellow Bicycle "Pack your Bags"....details will be on here as soon as the page is done, just waiting for it to wing its way from America.

If you are interested email me on I only have spaces for about 4 more people. I am looking to do these crops on a regular basis, so if you cant come to this one and would like to know when the next one is I can add you to my mailing list.
