Ringing In The New Year (TBD) - Scrapbook Layout

Ringing In The New Year (TBD) - Scrapbook Layout

This video is to redeem myself after such a blurry YouTube video covering the New Year's Eve layout. I could not let that be the last thing I left you with today. So, here is another layout for a New Year's Eve memory entitled Ringing In The New Year. I have created this layout using the Treasure Box Designs file, Ringing In The New Year. My technique of choice was to rip the edges of my paper for effect.

Here is a YouTube video on how I assembled this layout.

Enjoy!






New Year's Eve (SBD) - Scrapbook Layout

Sorry for the blurry video! Photos at the end of the completed layout.



New Year's Eve (SBD) - Scrapbook Layout

Here is a second New Year's Eve scrapbook layout using the Scrapping Bug Designs New Year's Eve file. For the confetti I used a paper punch and let them fall where they might. It was a bit tedious to glue them down, so I did that off camera.  Here is a YouTube video on how I created this layout (sorry for it being a bit blurry, had no idea until editing).

Enjoy!








New Year's Bears 2014 (SBD) - Scrapbook Layout



New Year's Bears 2014 (SBD) - Scrapbook Layout

I have completed a New Year's Eve layout using the Scrapping Bug Designs - 2014 New Year's Bears. You will also be introduced to the Staedtler Mars Flexible Curve to use when making borders. Watch my YouTube video on how I created this layout.

Enjoy!

Card Workshop - January 15, 2015 Remaking last year's Valentine's Day cards

Tonight's card workshop is all set up and ready for the paper crafters to come and create. We are taking the Valentine's Day cards from 2014 and giving them a makeover. I am challenging the attendees to use the techniques they learned last year to step up the cards for a 2015 style change.

What a great sight. A table ready for paper crafters. Look fun to you? Then you need to join in on the fun. See my workshop/club schedule in the right hand side bar.

Enjoy!
