Hooray - a birthday layout

If you have never been to one of my classes, here are a few points:

♥ Beginners are always welcome. Nothing I teach is beyond you.

♥ You bring your own papers and control your material cost. In general you'll only need basic materials for a class. Papers, ribbon, brads...that sort of thing. I don't sell anything apart from cardstock, but I'm happy to give advise where to buy cheapest or do a combined order when I see a great deal.

♥ Feel free to change things or skip steps. It's your layout and I want you to like it.

♥ Almost any project can be made to suit boys too.

♥ Class projects are normally not very busy or full of embellishments. That is because we create most of them from scratch or do a certain technique. If you like to add more embellishments, feel free to bring them along.

♥ Older children are welcome with a parent.

♥ Classes are fun and there is lots of chatting, a cuppa and laughs. Come along if you're tired of scrapping alone!

♥ Find more class info in the top right corner of this blog and leave a comment if you'd like to come!

Everyone has birthday photos and next week will be your chance to scrap them in class! We are making the big rosette from scraps and create a shiny dragon fly. It's really pretty, all rainbow colours.

Here it is a bit bigger:

Poppy field

I can't think of anything more beautiful than a sunny wheat field with poppies and a medieval castle in the background. I just had to scrap that for class next week. 

 I hoard too many paper flowers, here's a good excuse to use a whole heap of them! 

And we'll use these sweet dies I bought at the Papercraft Hub:

Castle Eltz - scrap many photos on one double layout!

Hi everone, 
I am back from my trip to Germany and I'll be scrapping lots of travel photos in the weeks to come. 

Surely we all have been guilty of pressing that shutter button a few too many times and ending up with oodles of photos from just one occasion. So, what do you do with so many photos? Scrap them as minis of course. In next week's class we'll do just that. Include as many or as few minis as you want and create a double layout that will capture all your memories without filling an entire album. 

I have a few new dies that help us create some different rosettes:

And if you didn't visit a medieval castle? Guess what- this will suit any occasion. 
             Cheers, Geli
