A few newbies today...

Wow, what an overwhelming response I've had so far to my BLOG CANDY post ~ thank you all for your sweet comments ! If you've not already entered, please do, you have until October 12 to get your comments in. Oh...and the more interest I get here, the more often I will have pieces up for offer, so tell your friends and visit often :D

As far as I know, general sales of my lasercuts are going well. Sharndra tells me that she had received email enquiries within a week of me reopening this blog, so that's GREAT news :) To anyone who has purchased one of my lasercuts, THANK YOU !!

I've had a few people ask, and YES - Sharndra will sell and post INTERNATIONALLY so please contact her (via the email link on the right) with your enquiries.

This week I've added a few new designs; some more birds, flowers and something special for the boys ! Scroll down to take a look...

Christmas cards

How cute do these look ?? I've just finished playing with some Heidi Grace papers and my brand new Christmas Bauble lasercuts to create these non-traditional Christmas cards.

Each bauble was coloured by pouncing a chalk ink pad over the top. Then, to give it some shine, I did the same with my Versamark pad, coated them with some clear embossing powder and then heated the embossing powder to melt.

** Note: when heat embossing lasercuts (particularly fine detailed ones such as this) TAKE CARE not to overheat. Because the edges have already been burned during the cutting process you will find that those areas begin to smoke. If you overheat it may catch alight.

Open Rose

We have a delicate, open rose will accentuate any card or layout beautifully...

and some gorgeous star-shaped wildflowers.

Go Kart

This cute little go kart guy is perfect for all of your boy layouts.

3 Birds on a Wire

Available in two sizes; the sister file to 2 Birds on a Wire...

WELCOME !! (and blog candy)

Welcome to my re-opened
lasercuts blog

A chance meeting about a month ago presented the opportunity for me to begin my designing again, so of course, I jumped at the chance ! My thanks go to Sharndra & John of Scrapbook Lady, Pakenham.

For the past couple of weeks I've been kept very busy working away on my laptop, and here dear readers, are the first of my designs hot off the production line - I hope you like what you see !

I will be adding new designs as soon as they become available, and will also add images of works created with my designs to inspire you. I'd love you to email me photos of anything you make using my lasercuts too; there is an email link for me in the right hand sidebar -->

New designs will be added regularly, and if you're looking for something in particular you should be able to find it using the category search option, also in the right hand sidebar -->

Suggestions for new designs are always welcome so don't hesitate to email me if there is something you're after (note; this is not a custom service ~ simply an opportunity to bring a sought-after design onto the market).

Scrapbook Lady is not an online store, but orders can be placed via email. Please email Sharndra with your enquiries.

I will be offering random blog candy prizes of some of my designs, so check back often to see what goodies I have up for grabs !

In celebration of the re-opening of my lasercuts blog I would like to offer one lucky reader one of my 'hummingbird & flowers' lasercuts (pic below). To enter, please leave a comment on this post.
