Hi to everyone,
This is so weird, this year seems to have set off at such a pace, I am wondering
whether I should be starting to prep for Christmas again. Those lazy days of
summer, if anyone knows where they are please send one my way. I however did
have a night at Pauanui and that was great. My friends have a beautiful place
and we were invited down for a night. My darling friend did however drag me on
a 5km walk around the place, which was wonderful, my camera and I made some new
friends so that was fun.
Most of you will know that I love paper, and
well paper things, l love this video check out the link, and I think you will
agree paper is here to stay, well for a while.
Hope you got
a laugh from that one.
Today is an a very cool day for me, a new venture
for Imagine If.. and myself. I will let you know next week more about that.
No, I will not be making purple clocks? or will I?. Actually that sounds fun,
maybe you will see some purple clocks. I will be manufacturing my own range of
products, at present the company I have purchased are doing craft ranges, but I
will be adding my own spin to what they are already doing over the next few
months. So lets be honest you probably will see purple clocks and keys
actually. Stay tuned.
I will also be announcing a call for design team
members, so put your thinking cap on if you would like to apply for that. Al
the details will be out next week, after my brain has stopped spinning out of
Class this week got canceled due to the purchase of the
business, which went very quickly, a week we checked it out, re checked, signed,
sealed paid and well not quite delivered.
If you are like me and you
need to keep your craft area or office tidy, check out these options on this
website, run by Paperzone in Hamilton for all your crafty requirements.
The website has now got credit card
facilities, very happy about that, we are using pay pal for that. You just pay
with your credit card like a normal credit card transaction, and they do all the
banking and cover me for fraud etc, so it is a good option and very safe. You
can still pick up and pay cash or you can choose to use Internet banking, that
is up to you.
I am loving some of the new arty stamps that are happening
out there at present, I am not intending to bring in a lot of stamps, but I do
like a few different ones, so check out the link for some very cool stamps,
including these lovely ladies.
All classes will now be booked through the website, http://www.imagineif.co.nz/ under class bookings. If
you click on the link for February you will see the classes listed. You do not
have to pay for the class until a week before the class or by arrangement with
me on the day, or you can pay by paypal as that is now running properly.

We will be using some very cool products to make these
versatile backgrounds, then making the card using them. The cards can have any
verse or saying put on them so they don't have to be wedding cards. We will be
using shimmer sheets to make the backgrounds. This is a very versatile product,
and I have enjoyed playing with this product.

This is a very creative class where you will do

getting your hands dirty. Splatter, splash, stencil, smash and spray. No rules,
just giving things a try. Ideas can be taken to card making to scrap booking, to
journal, whatever you want to do with it. Come and let your inner self play. A
few basic things required, but I will supply the rest. What will you make? Well
that will be up to you, pages of colour, test pieces, backgrounds and who knows
what else. I will show you how to make all sorts of designs. Don't feel like
you can paint, haven't tried experimenting before? or ready for something new,
have a go. It is so much fun.
Just a few basics and you will be away. You can even
make amazing embellishment for your scrapbooking or card making from these
