Amber's Class

I have finally managed to get my photos printed and here is the finished layout.  The square photos measure 3x3 and the oval photo I will have a template for.  I have rounded the corners of my photos so  you will also need one of those if you want to do the same.
See you tomorrow 

Amber's Class for December Crop

Please forgive the lack of photos (have had technical difficulties) but here is my layout for the December crop.  It will eventually have 3 black and white photos cut to fit the 3 frames. (Sizes will follow)

You will need your usual scrapping tools, repositionable glue would be useful and glossy accents for the title.

See you all Saturday

Sues class for December

Not a great photo of my layout...(it's not the best light in here)...but you get the idea. The papers are more red that the photo gives them credit for. When the sun comes up I will post another.
You will need: a 4x6 photo and a gold or olive inkpad, I used pearlescent olive.

Hope this is a better picture for you. I have added my title and I will be bringing the font with me.
Just a few added needs you will need a fine black pen, removeable glue, black inpad, silicone glue if you have it or glue of your choice, a 1" circle I used the lid off my 3D gloss also an apron and if you do not like inky finger then I suggest some gloves!! Also a heat gun might come in handy although I will be bringing mine but if you have your own then it saves on time!
See you Saturday,

Saturday's class April 6th

Sicily the mini album
 Okay Scrappers here is my class for Saturday's crop April 6th 2013.
It's a folding mini album that will hold 6 small wallet sized photos but you could fit more photos inside and they could be larger, but the album measures just over 6" square. It's a great size if you want to put in photos that are based on a theme. Mine has photos from a holiday in Sicily.
For this class you will need to get your distressy heads on, I have even distressed my photos! However some of you find this very difficult so you can leave it flat!
 You will need PVA or wet glue of choice, distressing tools- to achieve the very rough look my album has I used a Distrezzing tool which is electric and extremely noisy so I wont be bringing that; a poky tool, red and lightning black/gold inkpads, if you have a gold Krylon pen that will be useful-would have used mine but sadly mine has dried up, so I expect Amber will make me buy a new one from her!!!! You will also need some 3D gloss, swirly stamps would be useful but there are some on the tool table, a small tag punch but again I will bring mine. 
Fonts for title are available to use on tool table  for mine I used Quickutz 'Washington.' Simples!!!
See you Saturday
