Peeks for tomorrow's classes

I know its a little later than normal but I think I have a good excuse - I've been doing all the prep for the crop on my own and time just ran away from me! Anyway here we go in no particular order......

Using Chatterbox's sumptuous 'Fabulous" range , this layout has a funky, vintage hippy-chick feel. Patterned papers in the hip colourway of teal, yellow and brown with handfuls of sparkly treasures looking like they've spilled from a magpie's nest ! We'll be using co-ordinating butterfly and bird stamps, stamping on canvas, putting together a layered embellishment and adding a water- coloured border. Lots of techniques to try and not a straight line in sight - leave your trimmers in the crop room !
Tool Requirements: Dark brown Colourbox inkpad, Staz-on in Timber Brown and Teal Blue, acrylic blocks, 3/4" circle punch, foam dots, a very fine paintbrush - but don't worry - these will also be available to borrow during the class.

Ooh La La

We have the brand new Ooh La La range in shades of jade and ochre for you to play with in this class. The design uses two 6" x 4" portrait photos and you'll need to pack a scorer/bone folder if you have one. Throw in a jade green and an achre coloured inkpad if you have one, oodles of 3d foam pads and a corner rounder would be handy too!

Happy Feet

Claire Bell's Happy Feet class uses two main photos, one is a 6" x 4" portrait and the second is a 4" x 4" but the fantastic hidden book on the page has space for loads more 4" x 4" or smaller photos - so you can go crazy with this one! You will also need 3d foam pads, 1.5”” and 1” circle punches, scorer & bone folder and a single adhesive crystal to complete this design.

Flower Power

I warned you that this woud be a feminine kit and by george it is! You'll ned a single 6" x 4" landscape photo - but you could use a larger pic or even a portrait if you have it so don't fret! Pack inkpads in shades of pink, jade and tangerine and a scallop border punch if you have one.

Amber Glow

The grey and amber colours of this page will work with all sorts of different themes of photos. Claire Bell used a single 6" x 4" portrait photo for her design which left loads of room for all of the gorgeous Prima crystal swirls you'll have to play with!! You will need to bring along 3d foam pads, Yellow Cadmium inkpad, 5/8” and ½” circle punches and an embossing tool or stylus.

Teen angst

You'll love this grungy black and red page if you have teenagers but to be honest, it would also be perfect for any of the men in your life as we haven't gone too heavy on the teen theme! You'll need a 6" x 4" portrait photo but you could easily use two this size or a larger landscape if you prefer. Pack yourself a black inkpad, a notebook edge punch if you have one and some 3d foam pads, the rest is in the kit!

Jenni Bowlin Folded Book

This clever little book designed by Claire Fader has secrets galore for you to discover - don't worry it is easier to assemble than it may at first seem! You'll need nine 2" x 2" photos to fill it up and then you'll have hours of fun opening it this way and that to see them all! Pack a dark brown inkpad, a paper pricker and a 1" circle punch.
