|This is my favorite photo of my family. It was taken a few years ago (not saying how long) on my birthday.||My name is Kaye Grieve and I live in small town called Tin Can Bay, Australia with my husband. We have a grown-up daughter and son that I love very much, and my family is the most important thing to me. Jess has wonderful partner (husband now) and Nick is at Uni – they have both grown up to be very fun, loving and responsible adults despite my and my husband’s parenting skills ;-)|
|I love love loooove scrapbooking but over the years, I have tried and enjoyed all sorts
of craft, but scrapbooking is the thing that has stuck. I guess it’s the fact that it is a creative outlet while documenting our family history. If you have read the blog about my Pa, you will understand why I am so passionate about it.So why the website? At the end of 2009, I became very ill with an auto-immune disease (I have had it for many years and had it mostly under control), so sick in fact, I had to retire from my job. I couldn’t do anything for many months but as I started to improve, I started to scrap again. With a limited income, I started to look for ways of saving money on my scraping so I could still buy the products I really loved and couldn’t do without. As my skills and knowledge increased, I thought there are lots of time poor scrappers who could benefit from my research. So this website is about being able to create great pages and projects on a budget. By making some of your own embellishments, you can still afford to buy the products you love. So I am scouring the net and especially YouTube to put all the best ‘how to’ videos and tutorials in one place. Make sure you let me know if you find something I should include.
Although focusing on scrapbooking, many of the techniques and tips also apply to card making. I have lots of friends who do both – they started in card making and then moved to scrapbooking and are able to incorporate a lot of the same skills and techniques. I also love mixed media and incorporating it into my scrapping, so you will find some video on this topic as well.
Thanks for visiting my site and I hope you find it useful.
