A message from the Vic Masters and an announcement


It has been such an amazing time getting around in our towns and teaching to all the lovely ladies that came along and had lots of fun with us.  We had locals, regulars, interstaters and some that may as well have been from interstate!  All brought together by the desire to learn some of our techniques and we are ever so grateful for you all!

We want to also take some time again to thank our wonderful sponsors:

Kaisercraft
Scrappy Chat Designs
Twiddleybitz
2Crafty Chipboard
A Piece of Cake Designs

Click on the links above to be taken to their websites for more inspiration and to see what they are all about.

So with all that said, there are many that would have LOVED to come along, so we thought we would make up some extra kits for those that weren't able to, of which we have limited numbers for sale.

Kits are $35 each or $100 for all three + postage (at cost) for the kits.  If you want to purchase more than one, we are getting together at the Manor House Retreat 4-6th October and can bring them there to give to you or we will get them together then and post out the week following.  E-mail any of us to puchase them - addresses on the left side bar.

Here are the layouts you too can have fun creating!


We would also love to she some of the pics from the tour - we had a blast and hope you all did too!

This wont be the end of this blog either, we will use it to keep you updated as to what we are up to with regard to events and teaching.  Also don't forget to follow our blogs for more inspiration (there are links on our names above our layouts that will take you straight there) and happenings :)

First Tour Stop Success


Hello scrappy friends! :)
Well let me tell you about what a great day we had last Saturday.
It was the first stop in our Victorian Masters Tour at
Kaisercraft Geelong Outlet.

It really was a lot of fun sharing and teaching with a great group of ladies. 
On behalf of Beck, Heather and myself thank you to each and everyone.
Many of you mentioned you had learnt heaps of new techniques and tips
and we couldn't be happier with that.

Here are some pictures of how the day went.




Who doesn't love a give away?!
Big thanks to 




Quite a few of the ladies mentioned some of the things 
they learnt were quite different from their usual style of scrapbooking
and had definitely been pushed to experiment with new techniques.

We hope you all continue to explore new things and 
enjoy the creative process.


Our next event is on the 24th of August at 
The Imagination Factory in Ballarat.

Please message any one of us if you're interested in attended any of
our classes we'd love to hear from you.

Who wants to see some sneaks???


Hello everyone!
I think it's time to share some sneaks of these classes.
Just so you know what you can expect to create come August/September!



If you look below you will see so many different mediums used in various ways to create three very different styles.  Attend all three classes at the discounted price and learn them all, including taking away so many different products that you can create these looks time and time again in your own individual way!

Sweet as a Pea - Leonie Neal-Dawson
I had such fun creating this layout for the class, it
involves using a range of different mediums and of course 
a beautiful bright colour palette.


Dylusions Dreaming - Heather McMahon
 What a delightful page Heather has created.
I think I want to take this class myself!!!  It looks fabulous!
The colours and design are suitable as either a boy or girl page.


A bit of Boyish Charm - Beck Beattie
Just take a look at Beck's awesome dimension in this
sneak.  Everything is beautifully finished and executed,
such a lovely page.

Welcome...

Hello and welcome to our blog. 
Beck Beattie, Heather McMahon and myself (Leonie Neal-Dawson) are all current Scrapbooking Memories Masters living in Victoria.  
I'm sure I can speak for all three of us when I say that becoming a Scrapbooking Memories Master was a scrappy dream come true and we have all been enjoying our year creating for the magazine.  
When we all discovered we lived within reasonable travelling distance of each other we decided to meet up and as you can image we chatted about anything and everything scrapbooking related for ages.  To meet like-minded, passionate scrapbookers is a wonderful thing.

So, among our chatting we came up with an idea that it would be fun to share some of the techniques and signature styles that each of us are known for in the scrapbooking community.  
We are all incredible grateful for the opportunities this year has presented us with and would like to return and spread some of our scrapbooking enthusiasm through a series of classes to be held at local scrapbooking stores.

This blog is primarily a means where we can spread the word and keep you up to date about when
and where these classes will he held.
Thank you for stopping by and if you're interested in attending or 
hosting any of our classes don't hesitate to contact us, 
all our details are top left of the blog.

Cheers.
Beck, Heather and Leonie.

P.S. We'll be back tomorrow with the date and venue for the first set of classes.
