Scrapbook Class Reveal

A few weeks ago I posted a sneaky peek of a scrapbook class that I would be teaching at the Craft Box. Well I taught the class last week, I have shown friends in small groups how to make pages and I am a trainer by profession, so the teaching bit wasn't a problem. What did make me nervous was whether the ladies would like the page. This was the prototype that I came up with

 as it was a full day class I needed to create two pages and I also wanted to use different techniques. The first page had an interactive element and I worried it may have been a little bit too advanced. I shouldn't have worried, there were 8 ladies all of different levels but everybody made lovely pages. I'm always surprised at how different everybodys work looks even though they use the same papers. So here is the page again but in the papers the class used. I loved them and the colours were just perfect. I know there isn't a title I have just placed these photos to show the pages, this is my job for today to find the right pictures.
the interactive part shows when the tab at the top of the photo is pulled, this did get an OOOh from the ladies when I showed them.
it shows two more photos or journalling what ever you want.
I have another class scheduled on 21st OCtober, so if you fancy coming along, ring the Craft Box and book your place, all 8 of my ladies rebooked and with a maximum of 12 places you will need to be quick.

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Guest Designer

Over on the Scrap Addicts Blog I am the last guest designer for this month. There has been a series of layouts posted this month based on the theme of large photos. My 'go to' photo size is the standard 6x4"but I also favour 3x4" for layouts with multiple photos. 
When I do use larger photos I like them to be at a stage in my scrapbook that shows a change in topic or location, almost like a new chapter.
I chose a very large photo 8 x 10 for this layout, with a large image like this all of the decorating can be lined up on one side but to make everything link up I like to overlap onto the photo.
I had the layout all planned in my mind but by the time I finished it I had taken it apart and then put together again three times! It was almost finished and i dropped glue onto the photo, so I had another photo printed and when I stuck it down the torch and arm had been cropped off the image. So third time lucky getting the photo right.
