I am so very honoured and excited to be teaching on board Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas teaching classes for Australian Scrapbook & Craft  Cruises 

I am also so very blessed to have tow fabulous and generous sponsors for my class kits
Simple Stories have the most beautiful paper, embellishment and planner collections and Little Birdie Crafts have gorgeous handmade paper flowers, stencils, mixed media products and chipboard.
Please make sure you take time to follow them both on their cocials and also visit their websites to view all their collections including their latest releases.
Remember if your local store is not stocking these fabulous brands ask the owner to get them in they will not be sorry .

Walking with Elephants | 49 and Market, 13@rts


Hi Everyone
While in South Africa in October we got to walk and feed with rescue elephants at Knysna Elephant Park, here is my girl Madiwa and I having a stroll.
I created this layout in Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg's class at Scrapbook Studio's Retreat  in Jeffreys Bay using 49 and Market papers and flowers, 13 @rts mixed media products and Celebr8 Chipboard
I changed mine up a little to make it my own

Follow Your Heart | Celebr8

#kerriegurney #celebr8 #celebr8australia

Hi Everyone

Celebr8's Beautiful Life collection is so beautiful and was perfect for this gorgeous photo of my nephew and his fiance'. 
I have gone old school and used lots of layers of patterned paper finishing off by adding chipboard, odds and ends and fussy cutting flowers all from the Beautiful Life collection. 

Celebr8 products are available from your local papercraft store in South Africa and Australia

Besties For EVER | Simple Stories

#kerriegurney #simplestories

Hi Again
I am back with another quick layout with another Simple Stories collection I found in my stash. Although this is a Mom collection i thought the colours worked well with this photo of me and two of my life long besties. We have been besties since meeting in Y5 and Y8 now I'm not going to tell you how many years ago that is but believe me it is alot. We have seen each other through so much and  even though we don't catch up as much as we would like we know we are always there for each other no matter what. This photo was taken when we caught up  for a very last minute lunch catch up, which as you can imagine turned into a very long lunch filled with lots of laughs.

lots of lovely layers

I added a strip of foil using double sided tape and Couture Creations Gold foil
