Narelle's Class- 2nd March- What you need to bring

Good morning ladies!

For those of you who are completing the "Deer Little Ones" class this Friday evening-  please note that we have changed the start time of the class to try and help out a few people who cant get there by 7.00pm.  The class will start now commence at 7.30pm (not 7.00pm as previously listed)

Here's what you will need to bring with you:-

Paper trimmer and scissors
double sided tape, 
foam tape / foam dots or Helmar Scrap Dots
Dark brown ink (I have used Versacolour “Pinecone”)
1 x Portrait orientation 5x7 photo
Tiny blacks or brown kaisercraft pearls

I hope you have all had some fun with your fussy cutting homework!  Just a reminder that you need to cut out the following in preparation (if you cant get it done, don't stress-  we'll give you a hand on the night!)
  1. Cut 12  trees in assorted sizes and colours from the “Forest” glossy paper.
  2. From the “Oak” paper, cut 2 large deers,  2 small deers, 2 hedgehogs and a chipmunk.  (If you would prefer, you could use the rabbits instead of the deers)
  3. From the “Cypress” paper cut 11-12 hearts in assorted colours and 5 or more toadstools.

And finally- a couple of sneak peaks to remind you what this layout will look like!

See you on Friday at 7.30pm (or 10.30am on Friday 9th March!)

La-La Land Crafts for Kids- LLLC4Kids

Did you know that La-La Land Crafts has a BLOG FOR KIDS

If you love the La-La Land stamps and are 16 or under, LLLC4Kids is a great place to share your creations with other kids who share the same passion for the La-La Land stamps.

The challenges begin on the 1st and the 15th of each month, there is no need to have your own blog all you need to do is email a picture of your card or other creation to and they will be uploaded on to the site for you!

The current challenge #12 is to use stripes with your La-La Land stamp. 

Each entry will earn one Marci Dollar and the winner will receive 10!  Accumulate these until you have enough to get a La-La Land stamp of your choice.
Head over to the LLLC4Kids site to check out all the details.


This is a card Darcy received from her friend Lauren at Christmas, How cute is this!!!

If you are not under the age of 16 and would like to share your La-La Land creations, you haven't been forgotten!! The Customer Gallery at the La-La Land Blog is the place for you!

Di has a fabulous selection of La-La Land stamps with some new ones coming in soon, if you are in the store make sure you check them out.

Narelle's "Tiny Woods" classes

Greetings ladies!

I have some sneak peaks to share with you for my new classes, using Kaisercraft's new "Tiny Woods" collection.  Over two classes we'll complete 2 layouts, using the one kit!

The first class "Life's a Hoot"  will be held on Friday 24th February, at both 10.30am and 7.00pm.

This one uses a 4x6 portrait orientation photo,
and features some very cute 3 dimensional owls!

You can change the title to suit your photos... maybe"Whooo loves you?"
or anything you can think of!

 The second layout "Deer little things" will be held on Friday 2nd March at 7.00pm for the night time ladies, or Friday 9th March at 10.30am for the morning ladies.

This layout uses a 5x7" portrait photo and has lots of trees and some cute little deers, (but you could use the rabbits or hedgehogs from the Kaisercraft paper instead).

Again, you can make the title suit your photos,
(maybe "Some Bunny love you" is you have used the rabbits!)
You'll have the opportunity to do some fussy cutting at home in preparation for this class!

The layouts will be available for viewing in store this Friday, and I will post the full material list next week, but in order for Di to order the products, please let us know ASAP if you would like to book a spot!

  • Making a circular card
We will be using the Heartfelt Creations Hydrangea set, making 2 cards using the same set

In the next few days I will post some sneak peaks to the blog, but trust me you will love them!!

Please bring along your:
  • Paper trimmer
  • fussy cutting scissors
  • scalpel or blade
