After a wonderful weekend in first Timaru, then Staveley, I thought I'd show you the lovely work we created in class.
First off, was my 3in1 class at Artfull Crafts.
I used the gorgeous new range "Something Blue" By Prima.
I think this is my favourite layout from that class. Yes, it's simple. Yes, there is a lot of white space, but yes, it works! I love the teeny tiny photos in the gorgeous Prima resins. I love the colours. I love the flowers. I love the doily. I love the colours. Sigh. I love Prima.
This one also looks simple, but there are a ton of layers. A ton of gorgeous fussy cutting. Beautiful papers. And a memory of a wonderful day for my family.
Finally is a layout that I decided not to put photos on, as for class purposes I wanted to show how it could be made this way (as above) or turn it around to place it upside down. I think most of the class kept it the same way as above. The doily is where a photo will be placed.
As always with my 3in1 class, we create layouts that are relatively 'simple', but still have lots of ideas...texture, layers, fussy cutting, die cutting, punching, distressing. Plenty of techniques, and 3 (yes three!) layouts completed in 2 hours.
And then we went out to Camp Staveley which is a card camp. So, I created 4 cute cards for the ladies to create. And didn't we have fun ladies?!!!! Oh, so good.
A card with lots of folding to ensure it stands well and can be decorated.
Card 2, an easel card. I love easel cards. They are so easy to make, can be adjusted to be bigger or smaller and just have that 'wow' factor. I also wanted this one to be particularly male. So only one flower. Grin.
Card 3 was very simple, but looks incredibly effective. We created a spine along the edge so we could put our patterned paper inside on foam. This gave such a great 3D effect.
And finally card 4. My favourite of them all...
I love it's design. Just so cute. And again, by adjusting your measurements, it can be made bigger or even smaller.
I can't claim the card template as my own. I saw it on the web somewhere, but the decorations are all mine.
On the back is a space for your greeting.
This set of cards was made using the A . MA . ZING range - Cartographer designed by my friend Frank Garcia for Prima Marketing Inc.
It was such a fabulous weekend. Liz is the such a wonderful host and I had a brilliant time getting to know the delightful Miss Betsy better too. If you get a chance to go to Camp Staveley in the future, I would highly recommend it.
Hope you managed to get some wonderful scrapping done over the weekend too.
