"Hi,  I am Jodi, Owner/Designer at Corbett Creations Wood Veneers.  My laser cutting business came about because I would be constantly frustrated that I couldn't find the perfect title or embellishment to finish off layouts, projects or gifts.  I would then spend far too long trying to create the perfect embellishment and would sometimes rope my husband in to help me with all this cool tools in the man shed!  He has a love for wood also and together we purchased our laser.  I love being able to design and cut the perfect piece for someone to finish telling their story - the perfect title, the hard to find themed embellishment, a custom piece for the home or a meaningful gift, really makes me feel so happy because I know that their search is over and they have the perfect piece that they desired.  I love to create in wood, chipboard, cardstock, paper and acrylic with so many different mediums I can create so many embellishments and titles - the possibilities are endless.


Plus there will be a special "Admin Choice" winner who will receive an invitation to guest with us next month.

Our August Guest ...

Please welcome our very special guest designer, Jackie Edwardswith her lovely layout for our challenge this month. There is still time to play along with us - we'd love to see your entry.

Introducing ....


Our sketch courtesy of PageMaps 



Hi! My name is Jackie Edwards and I live in Southend-on-Sea, Essex in the UK.

I am a widow but have a wonderful daughter and three beautiful grandchildren who are mostly the subjects of my layouts.

I have been scrapping for over sixteen years now. I discovered scrapbooking when I was on holiday in America when my first Grandchild was about a year old and my style has changed many times over the years. I am very lucky to have my own craft room and because I am now retired, I can scrap all day and not have to clear everything away!

I have always been involved with craft in some form – sewing, cross-stitch, cards, altered art (I love Tim Holtz!) but seem to return to scrapbooking every time. My best buy a few years ago was my Craft Robo and this has helped me with titles and images on many occasions….I now have a Cameo too which means I can now cut 12x12 files!!

I very much enjoy entering challenges because they give me the starting point for a layout, whether it’s a sketch or other criteria……..although the end result doesn’t always reflect the original design or intention! LOL

I don’t know what I would do now if I didn’t scrap!!!

I was very pleased to be asked to be GDT this month and hope that my layout might give you some inspiration for this months challenge!



Thank you so much for being our guest designer this month. It has been delightful having you join us.

Remember ...

You still have plenty of time until the end of the month to upload your own take on our challenge. All details are on the blog sidebar. We'd love to see what you will do with our colour this month.

Welcome to our August challenge.

Our colour this month is a tribute to Daffodil day - Friday, 27th August, 2021.

Daffodil Day is one of Australia’s best known and most popular fundraising events.
Each day more than 100 Australians will die of cancer. Daffodil Day raises funds for Cancer Council to continue its work in cancer research, providing patient support programs and prevention programs to all Australians. Daffodil Day helps grow hope for better treatments, hope for more survivors, hope for a cure.

To Cancer Council, the daffodil represents hope for a cancer-free future. You too can help in the fight against cancer by participating in Daffodil Day. Daffodil Day merchandise is on sale throughout August, and you can donate to Daffodil Day at any time.
