Happy trails - with a flip out album

You've asked and here it is: a multi photo travel page! Grab a pile of photos and come along to learn how to make an awesome pull-out photo album!

When you pull on the tab, a whole album flips open, revealing one photo after another. 

You can pick your theme and pick your colour scheme (we're all using the same background paper of light grey and aqua, which goes well with almost anything). I have cut out a boat cause we're on a lake. You will have a choice of any kind of transport and if you don't do travel, then we can cut out something completely different. The choice is up to you. 

Those butterflies from A Mother's Art are so pretty, so let's use them. Several colours are available.

I recommend you simply bring a pile of photos and we will pick and choose as we go. I have used:
One main 4x6" photo (must be landscape)
Two 3x4" photos (portrait)
Four 4x6" photos (landscape) or substitude any of these for two 3x4" portraits. A mix of both sizes works well.

Please don't trim down any photos before class, they have very specific sizes. It's ok if they have white borders.
Don't have that many photos? That's ok, you can skip a few pages or use some for journaling instead. Need to scrap even more photos? You'll be making heaps of those albums in no time!

Please bring a cutter and a score board, if you have one. You will also need glue or the super strong red double sided tape. The cheaper stuff won't do. You can buy your adhesives at Toni's too.

Classes run at Scrappin' With Style at the usual time:
Monday, Feb, 20 at 9:30am
Tuesday, Feb 21, at 10am & 6pm
Cost is $25 and includes all materials

Lovely you

Just in time for Valentine's Day add a little bit of romance to your layout when you come to class next week! 

We'll get a little bit artsy with paint and give the distress tool a bit of a work out. 

There's pink, butterflies, flowers, texture! 

You will love scrapping a girly photo. I used a 4x6" photo. It doesn't have to fit inside the frame, a little overlap is ok too. 

Grab your photos, an edge distresser and a craft knife! Throw in that bottle of glue and a pair of scissors and you're good to go!
Classes are at Scrappin' With Style @ TJ's 
on Monday Feb 13 at 9:30am and 
Tuesday Feb 14 at 10am and 6pm
Cost is $25 incl all materials and please remember to book in!

See you there!

Swim Little Fish with Graphic 45

Time to celebrate summer with another beach layout! 

This time we're using some vintage inspired Graphic 45 papers. You could also scrap some cruise photos, beach weddings etc etc. 
Lots of things are happening on this page! 
shells, a pull out journalling tag...
...a little bit of fussy cutting...
...frames galore and lots of bits and pieces.

You will need two 4x6" photos: a landscape and a portrait one. Please note that the OUTSIDE edge of the frame is 4x6", the visible part of the photo is roughly 1" smaller.
So if you're feeling inspired to try something different, join me at Scrappin' With Style @TJ's on Monday, Feb 6, at 9:30am or
 Tuesday, Feb7, at 10am or 6pm 
(bookings are essential, especially for the night class!)

Cost is $25 and includes everything. Please bring a craft knife, edge distresser and foam tape or squares.

See you in class!

A beautiful life

Let's get artsy next week! 

We're creating our own backgrounds with texture paste and Magicals. Each one will be different! 

And because the Ubud Dreams paper is such a dream, we're using one more paper from this lovely collection. You can make this a matching page to our last class, if you like. 

I have also painted the flowers to match. There are blue flowers at the shop, if you'd rather not paint your own.

Let's get creative on Monday at 9:30am or on Tuesday at 10am & 6pm.
Like always is $25 and includes all materials. 
You will need a 4x6" photo in either direction (or you can improvise with several minis) and a black ink pad for the edges.

See you there!

This is my happy place

As it happens, I bought these denim flowers months ago and have been waiting for the new Ubud Dreams collection to come out, so we can use them! (just don't ask me how to pronounce it)

Those little squares look like Moroccan tiles and you'll need your trimmer and distress tool. 

We're also making a little tag, it pulls out for some journalling on the back.

I hope you love this paper as much as I do! It is absolutely perfect for photos that look a little washed out and we're using 3 of them! Mine are 2 1/2 x 3 1/2" each. You can adjust the sizes and directions a little, but don't make them too big.

I hope to see you in class. Please note that we're starting at 10am on Monday! It is the first day of school and I want to take the kids in the morning. Don't forget you must book in for Tuesday nights.

Class times: Monday 10am
Tuesday 10am & 6pm

Cost is $25 incl all materials

Happy Snaps - travel layout with bubbles

Everyone loves to travel! Next week's project is a travel layout (though it's only mildly travel-themed, you can adapt it to another theme). 

You will have space for 3 photos (3 1/2 x 3 1/2") OR 2 landscape 4x6" OR a mix of minis. We'll cut out the centre of the photo and raise it up for a bit of dimension.

Recently I saw a mini tutorial on Facebook by Ree Peace using bubbles, so I thought we might give this technique a whirl! 

Embellish the page with some pretty butterflies from A Mother's Art and some odds and ends!

So, gather your travel shots and come along to Scrappin' With Style
on Monday 16/01 at 9:30am or
Tuesday 17/01 at 10am and 6pm

Graduation - a sparkly fairy layout

To all my friends and scrapping buddies - Merry Christmas! I have enjoyed this past year with you all and I'm thankful for your friendship. Listening to each other, sharing what's happening in our lives and having the occasional whinge - you have been my besties all year! I hope every one has a wonderful Christmas. May the new year bring you happiness, health and love.

We are taking a well deserved break from classes for 2 weeks and will be back with a bang on January 9 and 10. I am super organised and have the first class ready. It's a pretty one, full of fairies, sparkles, flowers and a large velvet leave.

 The paper is again from Fab Scraps and as you know, the quality is just divine. 

I will also show an easy way to colour your metal filigrees with mica powders for a dreamy, soft colour wash.

We are again using the frame maker, but this time we will make covered ones. I have used 2 mini photos (3x4"), but you could use a landscape 4x6" instead, if minis don't suit you.

So, if you are free in January, book in and enjoy making something pretty with a group of friendly ladies.
Class times remain as usual:
Monday 9:30am
Tuesday 10am & 6pm
Cost is $25 and includes everything you need
Please note, unless you're a weekly regular, booking in is highly recommended!

See you all next year!

Christmas 2002

Welcome to the last class of the year! 

We are using papers from the the same Fab Scraps range as last week, so you can make this a matching page if you like.

Because you know I love them, Magicals will feature again on this layout. This time we are painting chipboard and dyeing some seam binding with it. There are just so many ways to use these little pots of magic!

We will also try out the new WRMK frame maker! It's a really nifty little tool that lets you make frames in any size you want. 

You will need a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2" for the big photo, and 2 of approx 2x3" for the smaller ones. We can adjust those smaller sizes slightly.
Why don't you join us for a Christmas class at Scrappin' With Style

Happy Christmas - elves, Santas and Snowmen!

Christmas is just around the corner again and it's time we scrap something festive!

Next week, sweet snowmen, little elves and chubby Santas roam across the page.

I have silhouette cut my photo, but you have the option of using a garden-variety 4x6" photo (portrait pls) or a few minis. Or you can scrap the page, then line up your loved ones on Christmas Day and add the photo later! 

We will use the amazing Magicals again, but this time to crackle a chipboard piece. They can be used in quite a few different ways, so here's a new one to experiment with! 

Talking about new, this amazing glitter snow is new too! 

As are these very nice red flowers. Of course we will alter them a little, just because we can! 

Why won't you join me for this festive layout at Scrappin With Style @ TJ's
Monday, Dec 12 at 9:30am
Tuesday, Dec 13 at 10m and 6pm
Cost is $25, with all your materials and mediums included. Just bring a photo or add that later. Mostly, just bring your lovely (s)elf!

Travel double layout

We all love travelling and next week we're scrapping it! Even if you've only been to the Coast and back, you're bound to have lots of photos. 
So, inspired by the timeless style of Jane Tregenza, we're keeping it clean and simple with 10 photos (or even more hidden under the main one)! 
If you can't find the right photos, bring the lot and we'll trim them to fit! Or add photos later at home.
For $25 you will get a heap of papers, a whole sticker sheet and everything you need to leave with a finished double layout.
So, when is all this happening?
Monday at 9:30am
Tuesday at 10am & 6pm
at Scrappin' With Style

Bookings are essential unless you have already told me or Toni in person, as these kits are limited and I can't get any more. 
See you in class!

Love Life - rusty cogs and mixed media background

I'm using a few cool techniques learned during our Adelaide adventure (inspired by Natalie May's class). We're turning a super plain background into a mixed media one...

 ...make some rusty cogs and not a flower in sight! 

You know what that means - perfect for scrapping the guys! This also works really well for outback photos.

Choose your colours for the photo mats and paint your cogs in a rusty orange and teal combination. You will need a 4x6" photo (preferably portrait or you can flip the whole layout on its side)
Join me on Monday at 9:30am or Tuesday at 10am and 6pm!
