Her beautiful layouts feature a number of different techniques and materials - including so popular right now scraps of fabric and felt. Her handmade embellishments are stunning and bring that special something to each page. Virginia's interactive layouts always surprise with a level of invention and creative ideas. If you want to know new tricks and tips on how to improve your pages book today her classes in Roseville store.

For those of you who enjoyed the interactive course in the autumn, this is another chance to make some different scrapbook pages with moving parts. And for those of you who haven't yet tried these interactive pages, this course will guide you through making pages with moving and hidden sections, that make your pages really fun and often allow you to include a lot of photos on one page.

A course for the springtime! You will look not only at scrapping photographs of flowers and the spring, but also how to make lots of different flower embellishments to decorate your pages. You will also get fresh ideas for creating one of Virginia's favourite embellishments - trees! Bring your own photographs, both springtime and any that you want to decorate with flowers.
