3rd Creativity Escape peek!

Our third class for the retreat this coming weekend features the brand new Simple Stories 'Documented' line released at CHA a few months ago but literally hot off the presses!  The rich cream and classic black designs are super easy to match to any type of photo both for colour and theme.  The text on the papers focusses on memories, love, living in the moment etc... so very simple to find the two 6" x 4" portrait photos needed for this class.

We will be playing with the fabulous kraft glassine paper from Tim Holtz which you can stamp on, ink, glimmer spray and emboss before die cutting it to make flowers!  Tons of fun to be had by all!  We'll be making more fab embellishments for the class page as well, worth getting out the flags for! We are talking layers and layers of fun and swirls......

The kit contains; cardstock, 4 sheets of double sided patterned papers, a pack of crystal swirls, 4 sheets of Tim Holtz kraft glassine paper, black lace, punched kraft card and a paper swirl template.

You will need to bring along; black, red and green inkpads (sample used Distress Inks in Black Soot, Barn Door and Peeled Paint), a heat gun, 3d foam pads/tape, a strong wet adhesive, water spray bottle.  If you have any of the metallic rub-on creams (the kind that look like a strip of round eyeshadows) then pop these in your bag too!

Available to use in the class; Sizzix embossing folders, Sizzix Tattered Florals and swirl dies, shimmer spray and metallic rub-on creams

Here is a sneaky peek of the finished design.....
