December crop 2012

This reminds me of that old joke:

What do you call a deer with no eyes?        No idea.

What do you call a deer with no eyes and no legs?      Still no idea.

Well, it makes me laugh!!

Scrapbus would like to wish all our fellow croppers a very merry Christmas. Hope Santa brings you something nice.

Our next crop is on 12th January 2013, usual time and place.

Love My Boy

Here is my class for Saturday's crop;
A lovely simple layout to complete.  I have used a 5x7 portrait photo.  You will need your usual scrapping tools, lightening black ink and I have used a paper distresser.

Because I couldn't let you get away with just completing a simple layout I have also made a mini book from the left overs!  Same tools apply but i've also used some glossy accents on this mini project.

See you all saturday
Amber :-)

12 Hour Crop 2nd June 2012

Hi ladies just getting my class ready for our 12 hour crop and thought I would let you know some of the stash you may want to collect before you arrive.
You will need 3 4x6 black and white portrait photos that can be trimmed, however I might be using a 7x5 photo and some smaller ones; can't find what I am looking for because I have been decorating and have moved all my stash and stored everything very safely! You will also need a distressing tool, copper krylon pen or a copper inkpad, a turquoise green chalk inkpad-I am using a Versamagic pad in Oasis Green. You will also need silicone glue, wet glue and 3D gloss.
My papers are in turquoise, and yellow tones and the 'layout', will be on a 12x16 canvas.
If I use anything else I will let you know!
