Class Projects

In my efforts to recapture and replenish my creativity I am taking a variety of classes in local scrapbooking stores near me.

Recently I had the opportunity to participate in some classes at 2 LSS (local scrapbooking stores).

In the first class I made some All Occasion cards at Making Memories with Scrapbooking on Hastings St in Burnaby BC.

The first card is a generic Baby card using one of the small Cuttlebug embossing folders on a tag and then coloured with chalks.

This next one is a springy Thank You card using Easter paper. The word Easter on the paper is covered up with some strategically placed punch outs.

This next card uses a Cricut greeting that has been trimmed to fit on the card front. The card front has also been trimmed into a wave pattern (freehand) and layered with patterned paper and coloured cardstock. Don't you love the random use of buttons on this card?

This next card was meant to be a wedding card but I ommitted the greeting. The embossed paper on the front is a thin mettallic paper that has been embossed using a Cricut embossing folder. I wasn't sure about this one at first but I like the combo of white, cream, blue and black.

This navy card is a gate fold with the patterned paper panel added to one side afterwards. I especially love the congratulations greeting (a rub-on) added right onto the satin ribbon. I never thought of doing that before!

Another rub-on greeting on a sparkly card. The patterned paper panel has micro glitter added to it using the burnished velvet technique.

Here's a close up of the glitter panel - see how glittery it is!

The next class I attended was a Girlfriends Fip & Fold book at Scrap Arts in North Vancouver. Kelly, a new Australian instructor at the store, showed us how to make this fun and surprisingly easy 5 x9 inch chipboard covered booklet.

Just look at all the space for photos and journally here!

Thanks for popping in on me today!
