Baby Hannah - a layout with a touch of gold

Next week you'll be amazed how much you can do with just the basic scrap supplies: 1 cardstock, 4 patterned papers, 3 buttons and some ribbon: 

To make it extra pretty, we're adding some gold leaf to our photo 

and some gold to the butterflies:

We're including a smaller photo with a pretty wood veneer frame (comes in 5 different designs, to be coloured to suit your layout):

The little flower twists open to reveal some journalling:

Class times are:
Tuesday (Oct 6) 10am
Thursday (Oct 8) 6pm
no Friday class this week as I'll be working at the craft expo

Adventure Awaits & Ascona (with multiple hidden photos)

What's in store for you next week?
On Monday (Sept 21) at TJ's Scrappin' With Style we're doing this cool boyish layout.  This class will be repeated at Scrapulous on Sept 29, Oct 1 & 2.

It has a hidden tag with journalling. During their visit to Rwanda last year Joel's team found out that once a month on a Saturday, everyone - from president to visitor - does a few hours community service. The team pitched in by tidying up a street in Kigali.

Rough granite texture on the clock chipboard... 
...and a few spots of chunky embossing give this layout a nice grungy look. 

Perfect for masculine photos, man stuff, motorbikes & cars too!
Class is on Monday, Sept 21 at 9:30
TJ's Scrappin' With Style
21 Mayes Ave, Logan Central
Cost: $25 incl all materials (bring one 4x6" photo)

And on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at Scrapulous it will be all about including lots of hidden photos on your layout! 

(The overall look was inspired by this sketch from Scrap Therapy and I just loved the colour scheme of Beck's sample here)

Open the main photo to reveal a flip-out section:

It can hold 7 more 4x6" photos and 6 smaller photos! 

There are 3 more photos on the back, though not visible here.

All in all, that's 8 regular and 6 half sized photos. Not bad for one layout. Those who don't have that many photos can include tickets, brochure clippings, mementos etc. 
We finish it off with our home-made, heat-embossed branch and some flowers.

Can't wait to do this project with me? Join me in class! If you're new, try it for free. Just bring your own papers.

Tue (22/09) 10am, Thur (24/09) 6pm, Fri (25/09) 9:30am
at Scrapulous, 60 Bryants Rd, Shailer Park
Cost: $20 BYO papers & flowers

And here is my Christmas version of the same booklet layout that I will teach at TJ's Scrappin' With Style on Monday, Oct 5:

Fairy Floss

I'm back from Germany and back into scrapbooking! For now, there aren't any new printed photos, but I'm sure you'll see lots of them over the next months.
For next week's class I have prepared a fun layout using Project Life tags and a little bit of stitching.

 (inspired by a layout found on Scrap Stacks here)

This stitching has a cool 3D effect and is very simple to do:

inspired by a layout by Robinzberdz found here)

A few flower clusters round it off, but for a more masculine page, you can replace them with a more "manly" embellishment.

 These little vintage rings were given to me and have been around for a long time. Let's give them a new purpose! You'll have the choice of black or ivory white.

You can choose the theme of your page, make it girly or boyish. 
To join in class, pick out 2 photos and a few simple things you have in your stash and come to Scrapulous! 

You will need:
- 2 photos
- 2 plain background papers
- 1 cardstock to mat your photos
- 1 or 2 cardstocks to die cut leaves (you can use my scraps)
- Project Life cards: 1 at 4x6" and 3 at 3x4"
(I have spare cards you can use)
- contrasting piece of paper (pink on my layout)
- a few large and small flowers
- a piece of ribbon

Tuesday at 10am, Thursday at 6pm, Friday at 9:30am
