End of an era....

We are very sorry that this news will come as a bit of a surprise.

Since the four of us started Scrapbus 6 years ago we have all seen our personal and professional lives significantly change to a point where running the monthly crop is no longer sustainable. We have therefore made the very difficult decision to bring the Scrapbus crops to a close.

Our last crop will be on Saturday 6th December 2014.

We will be having a half price sale on all kits (except November and December kits) and have lots of goodies for sale at rock bottom prices. Everyone who attends will get a fabulous prize to take away and of course there will be cake!

We want to thank everyone of you for your loyal support of Scrapbus. We hope we can see you in December to say a proper goodbye.

Sue, Amber, Fiona and Julia x

Amber's Finished Layout

Here's my finished layout, with the addition of a few more changes than I had anticipated!  

Sue's class updated....

My class for Saturday. I used an 8 x 5 photo but it will work with a smaller one. I mounted my photo on cream card (not provided in kit) as I wanted a light border so please do that at home or bring card with you if you want to. The title is still to go on but wanted to share. You will need black ink pad and 3d foam.

A 7x5 landscape photo
Usual scrap tools, including a paper distressing tool, craft knife and mat
A paint brush (smallish one but not tiny)
Repositionable glue would come in handy for this layout
Black ink

We will have the following available on the tool table but if you do have any of them please bring them along to save you waiting around:
Wild honey and peacock feathers distress stains
Wild honey distress ink pad and tim holtz blending tool

See you all on Saturday

Elaines class for Saturday

Here is Elaine's class for Saturdays crop.

This kit will cost £5.
If you have not already booked and wish to attend please drop a line to

Vanessa's class for Saturday

Vanessa will be teaching this lovely class at our 12 hour crop.

There are 6 double-sided papers and 1 cardstock plus embellishments in the kit so this one is slightly more expensive than normal (£7.50). You will have lots left over for a second layout.

Vanessa used these inks:  light brown, mid-brown, light green, white and yellow
Bring these if you have them but there will be some at the crop if you haven't got these colours. A mid-brown of your own would be really useful as everything is inked in this so it might take a long time if we all share.

Vanessa used a 7”x5” photo but the space is fairly flexible so could be adapted to fit a smaller photo.

You will need:
Black ink
Matt or glossy accents
7 x 5 photograph

Wednesday, 2 April 2014

Amber's class for April

Here is my layout, minus photos (have to get some printed). Thought you'd appreciate seeing the layout and colour scheme regardless. It's a very brown layout so lends itself well to sepia/heritage photos but anything goes as you all know.

You will need your usual scrapping tools, brown ink (preferably Tim Holtz walnut brown and blending tool but any brown ink will work). Distressing tool and a brown doodling pen. There will be a Tim Holtz gathered twigs distress stain on the tool table but if you have one please bring it if you don't want to wait to use ours. 

My layout will eventually have 2 photos on it; one 4x6 portrait and the other will be cut down to fit the little Polaroid frame.

Hope the photo helps, see you on Saturday.

I Love You

                                    Fiona's class for Saturday 1st March 2014
No paper foof this time ladies just a bit of inking! For this class you will need to go with these gorgeous 
 Echo Park papers: a not too dark blue inkpad and a not too orangey inkpad. I used a chalk type to give a softer finish. You will also need a blue fineline pen and some 3D gloss, and a cropodile or something that will make teeny holes, plus usual tool of mass construction. The photo is  landscape 6x4 trimmed down to 5 1/2" x 3 3/4" but I think you coud use a portrait photo with a bit of jiggling!
See you all Saturday, don't forget your daffs!
love Fi xxxx
