Pages 2 Scrap

A few weeks ago, my BFF forwarded me an email from her local papercraft store, Pages 2 Scrap, located at Tuggerah on the Central Coast.  When I'm on the Coast visiting, I love going to this store, as they have lots of goodies to ooh and ahh over, and I rarely leave without buying something.  Anyhow ..... the email she sent was headed "Card Teachers Wanted" and she thought I might be interested in applying.  My initial thought was "it's an hour away" but as she pointed out, how many people commute to Sydney on a daily basis and never think twice ...... she had a point.  So I thought "why not?".  The criteria was to email 3 recent pieces of work, meet submission deadlines and have experience in teaching cardmaking.  I fitted all three, so sent off the relevant information.

If you think these cards look familiar, then you'd be right, they have all been posted on my blog before, but the store really liked them so a few days later I headed off to meet up with the owner and before I knew it, I was booked to teach two classes in September.   Yesterday was my first class teaching A Ladies Diary set of cards and the 5 ladies who attended all had a lovely morning crafting.  My next class will be in a couple of weeks time and we will be making the Kaisercraft Vintage Tag cards.  I'm yet to put together my samples for the October class, but it's on the drawing board in my head (which could mean anything hee hee).

Wishing a Happy Father's Day to all those dads and grandads out there.

Have a crafty day!


  1. Hi Helen

    Each one of your projects is beautiful no wonder the owner of the craft store has asked you to teach some classes there. Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for visiting my blog and the lovely messages.

  3. Congratulations Helen. You will have so much fun I am sure and very well deserved.

  4. Just a thought Helen but have you thought of taking off word verification. It very often puts people off commenting as it is time consuming. I got my last message entered after the third attempt.
    Hugs Sharon. x

    1. Thanks for letting me know, Sharon, I wasn't aware that it was on so I'll have a look. It doesn't bother me too much when I have to use it, but sometimes it's really hard to decipher what the letters/numbers are. Helen

  5. These cards are brilliant, I love your style and your blog. I have become your latest follower. Well done on the teaching job. Michelle x

  6. Beautiful selection of cards Helen.
