August Layout of the Month

 Amazingly enough I had this layout finished a couple of weeks ago. It has been up on display at Scrapalicious but I had not taken pictures of it for my blog post until just the other day.
This layout was created with WRMK pet collection of papers, there are some dog papers too if you have a dog. I have dog stamps as well (not as many as cat stamps thought, but still, quite a few). But if you don't have furry friends, don't worry. I have an alternate paper for you to use if you would like to do this layout and I have a large assortment of stamps. I just need you to let me know what theme of stamps to bring. I have way to many to bring them all.
What you need to bring to class is your basic tool kit including a pair of scissors. We will be doing some stamping and cutting out on this layout.

And as a special bonus, I have copies of my friends French Canadian publication Scrapbook Extra for those of you who sign up for this class. Yes, it is in French but there are great layouts in this magazine and some step-by-step tutorials.

Class was originally scheduled for Wednesday August 10th but I have a scheduling conflict so I would like to switch the class to August 3rd, 9th or 11th at 11:30AM. Please let me know if you have a date preference ASAP.

Hope to see you at Scrapalicious. 905-614-0085

July's Layout of the Month...

Has been finished for a week and I just haven't been able to get it up on my blog. No logical explanation really, I have just been distracted by other things.
The theme for this month is Friends but it doesn't have to be. Use whatever title you like. I have used Basic Grey papers once again, lots of layers with papers, chipboard and stamps. Oh, and a wee bit of sewing. Maybe only 5-10 minutes worth. There is lots of ways to add photos to this layout, even on to the tags. I am really loving the colour palette which is weird because purple and pink isn't normally colours I am drawn too.

There is only one class scheduled for July and it is Wednesday July 13th at 11:30AM. Sorry, no weekend class as there just doesn't seem to be enough demand for weekend classes in the summer. I am also attending CHA and will be away from July 16th to 22nd.

Sorry for the picture quality. Colours are better in real life.

There will be classes in August, one Pet themed layout (but need not be, totally adaptable).
The other is a mini album of sorts using the 7 Gypsies Drawer and lots of Sizzix/Tim Holtz border dies and some of his inking techniques. This is a 3 hour workshop and you will have some choice in papers etc. So far this is just in my head and I need to start working on it so that you can sell what I am dreaming of.
