WELCOME 2011...

There are a number of CT and DT calls in this post, so if one of your New Year's resolutions is to make a design team, why not check them out, and give them a go !

NEW CALL: January Monthly Challenges

As it is the beginning of not only a new year, but a new month, don't forget to check out all of the latest challenges on your favourite blogs and websites. If you know of a site or challenge blog not listed here, please contact me and I'll add them to the sidebars ! Good luck and Happy Scrapping !


Do you ever see a gorgeous layout in a Scrap Mag using one photo only that you just love and try to scraplift it and apply it to your pages using multiple photos? It just doesn’t work out does it? Looking for ideas for layouts using more than 3 photos on your pages? Here is a new blog that can help you get some inspiration for your multi-photo layouts….MULTI-PHOTO SCRAPBOOKING LAYOUTS GALLERY.

Anyone can contribute their layouts to this blog – it showcases pages using 3 photos or more. No strict criteria to adhere to like the Scrap Mags; no having to use the latest products and techniques; all you need to do is use 3 photos or more on your layouts and you too can be published!!

Send your layouts to and advise what details you want about yourself published (i.e. name, suburb and/or state) – it’s that simple!!

The Blog address is Visit and be inspired. Contribute and be appreciated.

NEW CALL: “Your Place in the Sun” – a free 12 month workshop.

Have you ever wanted to put together an album about that special place in your heart you call home but didn’t really know where to start? Would you like to look at the wider picture of how we fit into where we live and interact with the people who share the common ground around us on a daily basis? What are the things we see and the places we attend regularly (but somehow never really notice) that make a neighbourhood or community what it is?

Join Jane Howden in 2011 on Scrap Beginnings for a FREE 12 month class where we will take a journey of discovery through our own communities and document our daily lives. There will be a monthly downloadable pdf filled with prompts and ideas, example layouts and sketches to give you inspiration and a set of monthly challenges - complete with prizes - in which to participate. This workshop is for everyone – how you approach the process is entirely up to you - paper, digital, journal, blog, whichever makes you happy.

Class begins on January 8.
