#kerriegurney #scrapbookexpobrisbane #celebr8

Hi Everyone



I am so excited to be teaching at the Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo in Brisbane again this year.



This year I am even more excited to be teaching for Celebr8 who are coming all the way from South Africa will be exhibiting at the show and I cannot wait for you all to meet Mr & Mrs Celebr8  Dennis and Erin  Bruton



In the Celebr8 classroom I will be joined by Erin and Jenny Heaslip we will all be teaching double page layouts and hope you can join us over the 4 days at the show in our classes
When we aren't teaching we will be on the Celebr8 stand hosting FREE Make & Takes and Demonstrations so please do pop by the stand and say G'Day


In my class you will create a unique watercoloured textured background, do a little fussy cutting, create some embellishment clusters and layers to create a gorgeous fresh and fun double layout.
Everything you need to create your layout is supplied in your kits and in class.
Included in your kit Celebr8 Be Happy Papers,  Stencil,  Chipboard , Ribbon,  Beads, Sequins, Flair Buttons,  Odds and Ends Die Cuts and Acetate Sheet
We will also supply ink pads, inks and texture paste for you to share in class.
You just need to bring along your photos ( or you an add them later) and your basic tool kit along with a craft mat and pallet knife.

I look forward to seeing you at the show

Be Happy | Celebr8

#kerriegurney #celebr8 #scrapbooking


Hi Everyone, I have had quite a break from blogging, with my baby finishing up Y12, then a trip to the USA, an unexpected hospital stay, Christmas and then time to recover from my operation and enjoy time with my family along with trying some new crafts.

I am back enjoying my papercrafting 

I created these two layouts using the leftovers from my class sample for Celebr8's 3rd Annual Event in South Africa using their Be Happy collection which was released at their events in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town



Do What Makes You Happy
