Baby Album, Boy or Girl, with Bonnie


  




When I saw the new Pebbles “Special Delivery” line of papers, I knew a mini album was in order.

Babies and toddlers are probably the most photographed subjects, so I knew this album had to be able to accommodate tons of those precious photos.

There are four page layouts in this gorgeous album along with flaps, tags in each page and two mini pullout albums inside the album. One is even removable! Amble room for photos as well as extra embellishments and keepsakes.

A perfect album to give as a shower or grandparent gift, or make for your own little ones!

Please specify which album you want to make when you register.

The class will be taught in two parts.

Part 1: Thursday, May 1, 2014
6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Part 2:  Sunday, May 4, 2014
11:00 am to 2:00 pm

Cost: $45.00
Extra kits will be available for $40.00 

Supplies to bring to class:

  • Basic tool kit including a wet adhesive such as Tombow Mono
  • Pop dots
  • Sook Wang tape; 12 mm size

Pocket Scrapbooking & Crop, with Barb


Pocket scrapbooking is so much fun. It can be as simple or creative as you wish. Just pick a pocket page that suits your pictures. Slide them in, and then decorate the remaining pockets.
For this scrap, each participant will receive one sheet of the new Simple Stories line “Homespun”. Love it, and found the paper easy to use for any family situation.
At the beginning of the crop we will make one 4 x 6 pocket card. The McGill flower tool is so simple to use, and adds dimension to flowers. We will use it to make two flowers and embellish the pocket card. The flower centres are brads. We will take a brad and change the colour by embossing it. Simple and a great way to use up old brads. Easy, easy!!
Supplies for the crop are:
Basic tool kit including:
  • Glue and glue dots
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers (to hold the brad when heat embossing)
  • Paper cutter, and
And if you have it,
  • Iced Spruce Tim Holtz distress ink
  • Stamp blending tool or sponge
  • Fine point black pen, zig, sharpie or other, and
  • A McGill flower making tool kit and mat.

Time: 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
