It's Friday - it must be food.

Hi lovelies,

If you have visited the store on any of the past few Saturdays, you may have been tempted to try a piece of the beautiful White Chocolate and Macadamia Fudge that was brought in by the lovely Sonia. 

Sonia even brought up a tray just for me to take home.  Robbie and Andrew decided that 1 tray was not enough, so Sonia sent the recipe for them to make more.

This fudge is definitely not for those who are watching their sugar intake 



Ingredients - 
 1 can condense milk must be full fat and nestle
1 cup soft brown sugar 
125 gram butter- real butter that is
2 tablespoon liquid glucose

1 block of white chocolate
400 gram bag natural macadamia nuts.


Take the first 4 ingredients and
place them in large microwave bowl 
Microwave for 2 minutes 4 times.
8 minutes in total





 After each 2 minutes you need to stir the mix.
 Time in microwave may vary depending on voltage,
but Sonia always uses 8 minutes total.



It will look funny but believe me tastes great.



 


Be careful as the mix is very hot
and boiling sugar cause severe burns.




After the last 2 minutes
add the chocolate and nuts.



Stir until the chocolate has melted.
This will not take long. 








Pour into a greased and lined pan
and leave to set overnight. 







My parents were visiting the when the boys made this, and my dad asked for the recipe.  I let him know that I had emailed it off to him and it would be there when he got home.  He responded with "I hope that the ants do not eat it all before we there".   I love his sense of humour.

Dylusions Dy-Cuts Art Journal

Hi Lovelies,

This week's edition of Art Journal is very special, stunning and unique!
We can't get enough of all the textures and colours going on in this page! We just love this. 



This wonderful page features the Dylusions 'Dy-Cuts' which are quirky and colorful pre-cut shapes which make the perfect addition to any art journal page!


You probably can already guess what paints we have used this week...
The stunning, vibrant colours which are leaping of this page, are of course, Dylusions paints!


When you take a closer look at you can see the texture and elements which have been layered to create this stunning page. A script stamp is perfect for layering and can fill in any gaps where you think something might be missing but not quite sure what!


Helen has scattered some of the new Dina Wakley 'Collage Words' across the two pages. These are great as you can add a sentiment to your page whilst still allowing the colours from the background to peek through.

Nautical ATC Class

Hi Lovelies,

Today I'm sharing with you some photos of what ladies got up to in one of our previous Artist Trading Card classes!



Obviously this week's ATC's have a nautical theme, so the Couture Creations 'Sea Breeze' die set was the perfect accompaniment!



The stunning watery background for both the card and die cuts is attributed to the wonderful Tim Holtz Oxides! These inks are extremely versatile and have such a unique finish.


These cards measure at 2.5" x 3.5" and are the perfect size to give as gifts to friends, pop in your daily diary or mix in with your pocket scrapping.


Liz used a light layer of clear embossing powder over the oxide inked die-cuts which gives a beautiful watery effect. 



If you've been watching our Blog space lately you would know we're currently on a bit of a Crackle Texture Paste craze! I'm sure you will be too after you try it as it truly takes your project up that extra notch!


Similarly to Art Journal classes, ou…
