Creativity Escape peek - project class

As many of you know, I have a thing for chunky, dimensional projects that have lots going on and the project class for the retreat has allowed me to indulge to my hearts content! This class takes albums to a whole different level as you create it in the round on a goreous replica vintage spool. As soon as I had this idea I commissioned the spools specifically for this class and was so pleased with the finished product! This is something you can add to over and over again and it will look fabulous on display as it has oodles of charms, ribbons and fragments dangling from it. You can choose to highlight the vintage pinks in the papers using pinks and browns or go along the blue route with blues, browns and green so this project can be pretty and feminine, vintage or masculine - whatever suits your personal taste.

The kit contains; a wooden spool, a whole pack of 6" x 6" patterned papers, corrugated card, a whole pack of Anna Griffin ribbons, a selection of Tim Holtz charms, fasteners, tickets and tags, paper clips, film strip ribbon, wire coil

You will need to bring along a paintbrush, wet adhesive (the sample used matte medium), border punches. You probably won't get to the photo stage in the class but it will take 3" x 4" photos in both portrait and landscape. You will need 24 medium brads - silver, pewter or black would work best with the kit (the album can be assembled without but we have a cool technique to show you using them!). You will need brown, pink and/or blue inkpads (the sample used Distress Inks in Vintage Photo, Weathered Wood and Tattered Rose).

Also required and available to use in the classroom are Sizzix On-the-Edge dies and cream paint

I have had loads of enquires about these kits from people who could not make the retreat and I am pleased to tell you that I have a few sets of all the class kits for sale. Numbers are VERY limited so if you are interested I would suggest you email sales@totalpapercrafts.co.uk - it will be first come, first served.

I hope you like what we have shown you so far, we love the classes and are so excited about teaching them this weekend!!
