Meeting Amy

A couple of weekends ago I had the great pleasure of meeting one of my favourite scrappers
Amy Tangerine when she came to Australia to promote her Sketchbook line which has recently popped up in our Spotlight stores. This alone is major news because we are a bit behind the rest of the world when it comes to the latest and greatest in scrapping and up until recently the only line Spotlight carried was Kaisercraft which I am not a huge fan of and we have no Micheal's or Archivers to speak off.

Anyways back to Amy's visit, I went to meet her at Spotlight Narre Warren and it was a fabulous morning where I got to meet other scrappers and project life fans and we did a make and take card which is super cute, I got Amy to sign it so I can pop it in my PL album.


Amy was just like she is online - cool, sweet and fun. It really was a wonderful morning and I was lucky enough to win a prize pack of the Sketchbook line which I couldn't wait to get stuck into so it was only fitting that I used it to scrap my photo of Amy and me.


I also attempted to use embroidary floss for the first time and realise now that anyone who can do that is highly skilled because it is hard! I had a failed attempt first and trashed the page. Fopr this page I actually printed out the work I wanted to sew, placed it on to the layout where I wanted it and then poked the holes in with my piercing tool. Here is the finished LO.


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend,

  4. What a great and fun page. Just love the way you've teamed up the brights with the black&white chevron. Looks amazing! And nice work on the stitching too..... that's why I never hand-stitch... it's too hard!! :-)
