Here is a sneak peek at the classes planned by Anita, Jill, Linda and Lynn for the Autumn weekend crop. We have a Christmas card class, three layouts, a framed layout and a treasure box.
First up on Saturday morning is this layout class 'Let It All Hang Out!' by Anita Macdonald:
Anita's class uses acetate and fabulous papers from Simple Stories 'Vintage Bliss' range. Create an eye catching layout with a difference, based on a sheet of framed acetate embellished with multiple photos, paper embellishments, crystals, gems and mini clothes pegs.
The page will suit various photos, Anita has used three, they are each 2.5" square. These can be interchangeable at any point as they are simply held in place by the mini pegs.
This is followed by Lynn Cooper's Snowflake and Christmas layouts class:
A layout class to make not one but two layouts using Bazzill in four colours and papers from Bo Bunny's 'Mistletoe' collection and My Mind's Eye 'Winter Wonderland' collection.
Create a layout for winter in white, and shades of blue and one for a Christmas photo in traditional reds, whites and greens.
These layouts use several embellishments including glass, gems, twine ribbon and glitter glue.
Dig out you Christmas, winter and snow photos for this one, Lynn used a 4" wide x 6" tall photo for each page. Colour or black and white pictures would work equally well.
Glitter glue is included in your kit.
After lunch we move on to Linda Fitzsimmon's 'So Happy' Layout class:
Join Linda to create a fun layout with buttons, gems and lots of die cut and punched shapes. Suitable for all occasions, the colours are fresh and zingy.
Uses a black and white 4" x 4" photo, but will work with other sizes and colour.
In the evening have '12 Days of Christmas' Card making class with Lynn Cooper.
Create a card for each of the first five days of Christmas in class, with instructions to make others up to twelve later.
Traditional Christmas colours and 6" x 6" cards blanks and envelopes together with Bo Bunny's 'Mistletoe' 6" x 6" papers in 12 designs. Die cut images, Bazzill cardstock in several colours, tiny letter stickers, gems, pearls, ribbon, twine and more.
Start Sunday off by decorating a 'Treasure Box' in a class with Jill and Angie.
Decorate an MDF treasure box (approx. 16cm x 12cm x 6cm), using My Mind's Eye 'Lost and Found3' papers. There is a choice of Ruby (red) or Oliver (blue).
We will be making roses from cardstock colouring them with Promarkers, and embellishing the box with various charms. The box will be lined with felt.
There are only six kits of each colour, so please state your choice when booking.
Then last but not least on Sunday is Linda's framed page class 'A Little Box of Love'.
Create a framed page approx. 9" square. Lots of hearts in beautiful soft pastel shades. Perfect for the love(s) in your life. Box frame is included in the kit.
