Hyden Retreat Sneak Peeks!
Next week Lis, Sharon and I are off to Hyden for a retreat, we are each doing two classes each so we are going to keep you busy girls! Here are the sneak peeks and what you will need for the classes.

brads 'n' things

In this class we are looking at using 4 or more photos on a single page layout and incorporating circles into our embellishment.

I love all the different coloured brads you can get so in this layout we are using as many as we like! and cirlces are very in so we will look at other ways to add circles to our pages.

You will need -

5 photos, close-ups, 2 black and white and three colour
2b pencil and rubber
compass (essential)
wet glue (glue stick or acid free craft glue)
black journaling pen (fine tip)
small craft hammer
12 inch paper trimmer
double sided tape
self healing mat

Supplies I have used:

2 sheets of cardstock (match colours from your photos)
1 sheet of patterned paper, I have used scenic route cape town, which way black
heidi swapp plastic letters (something of medium size and no more than 1 inch in height)
heidi swapp grunge brads (1 packet)
cardstock scraps
antique white paint (I will be bringing paints)
collections stars, hearts and flowers chipboards

Double event layouts

Do you find you put these off? you know, Christmas, family affairs, trips to the zoo, birthdays. They can be difficult. Everyone is doing something everything clashes but you want to get a record of the day. I made a formula for myself, once you see the basic pattern it is easy to change and adapt to your needs.

What you need:

at least 3 6x4 inch photos, 10 photos to crop to 2x2 inch
double sided tape
craft glue
12 inch paper trimmer
sand paper

Supplies I used:

2 sheets of cardstock
paper for journaling (cardstock or ledger pp)
patterned paper scraps
EK success sticko style chipboard letters
Black journaling pen fine point

Other title options:

SEI so bold cardstock stickers
Basic grey mini monograms
Heidi swap acetate letters
