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!

2 Days in Cairns --- re-purpose old chipboard shapes

Do you have some old chipboard shapes that you no longer want to use because they're so out of style? In next week's class we're turning these yucky old chipboard flowers...

...into nicely layered little beauties.

And while we're re-purposing some old products, let's have some fun with peel-off stickers. They're mostly used by cardmaking grannies, but we can totally rock them too!

A couple of week ago we coloured in birds with Distress Crayons (see it here) and this time we're using the same crayons and a completely different technique to create this tag.

On both the chipboard flowers and the tag you can use whatever colour suits your photo, but we're all starting with a yellow and grey background. Those 2 colours go with almost anything.

So, if you'd like to learn 2 different techniques and get inspired to dig through your old stash again, join me for class next Monday at 9:30am and Tuesday at 10am or 6pm! As always, we're at Scrappin' With Style @ TJ's and cost is $25, which includes everything needed. 

Please bring a landscape 4x6" photo. If you have a heat gun and a heat mat, please bring them to save on waiting time!)
