...and welcome to Issue 19 of Australian Scrapbook Ideas. With a new year well underway, we are looking forward to all the exciting things we have planned over the coming months. I have been busy at CHA in America since I last caught up with you and it was fantastic! It was very tiring but well worth it for all the amazing trends and products that I got to play with. I will be bringing you lots of news and ideas from my time there throughout the year. The next thing in the diary is the Melbourne Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo in March. I’m looking forward to meeting many of you there and will also be teaching a class to fellow papercrafters. Have a sneak peek at the layout I am going to be teaching over on page 66. It has been business as usual for our designers and they have come up with the most gorgeous layouts and projects for you. I couldn’t resist getting involved too when I found out we had a selection of papers from the Prima Nature Garden collection free with this issue. See what I did with them over on page 12. Candy Rosenberg is well known for her dress form work and now you can get the look too, with her tips on how to recreate her style in miniature with Craft Concepts dress forms. To top it off, she also shares one of her canvases with us on page 14. I am so pleased to be able to bring you more from the talented Jane Tregenza on page 50. This year we are bringing you a women of the family-themed board book across the next few issues.You will be able to follow Jane’s lead and create your very own version to pass on your memories to future generations. Every issue, we will bring you another two pages, so that by the end of this year you will have a completed book.What a wonderful project for yourself or a gift for someone dear to you! We scrapbookers all love ways to extend our supplies and make our own unique embellishments. Adriana Bolzon shares some fantastic ideas for creating your own winged wonders on page 36 to help make your next layout soar. Mistra Hoolahan brings us a practical solution to all those leftover chipboard alphabets, on page 60. I have boxes of them, so I asked Mistra to show us what she would do with them and she has come up with some fantastically imaginative ways of avoiding throwing out all of those ‘Zs’. New designer Trudi Harrison shows us the hottest new trend on page 44 with woodland layouts. The woodland theme is so very in and I love it because it is suitable for the boys but also so pretty with that touch of nature about it. I hope you are as inspired as I was. And on page 87, one of our other great mixed media artists, Michelle Grant, puts texture paste to the test, with awesome results. I particularly love the canvas as it shows that you don’t need to always have a photo to create a beautiful work of art with your scrapping supplies. Lastly, we have guest designer Hetty Hall on page 92, well known for her beyond 12x12" layouts. I hope you enjoy her latest works featuring Kaisercraft die-cuts. As well as this, we have all our regular galleries, news and challenges to inspire and regenerate you as a papercrafter. Until next time… Happy creating!
