Don't you just love weekends, especially when it's a weekend that is dedicated to scrapbooking!
May 4 is National Scrapbook Day and many around the world will be spending some time craftin!
Cropfest Barrie can help with your NSD plans, they are hosting a wonderful crop at the Holiday Inn. Karen Ellis and I will be having some mini workshops planned to keep your creative mojo flowing!!
Registration for Cropfest is open NOW at www.scrapfest.ca
Here's a peek at my Cropfest classes on Friday:
1. Fancy Folds Birthday cards:
One can never have too many birthday cards, we will be using the Scor-pal tool and you will see how easy it is with a few scores to create some dynamite cards. This is just a one hour class so we will cover the scoring and folding techniques for 3 (a side step, easel, and triple pocket) cards and you have enough bonus supplies and instructions to create 3 more fun birthday cards PL|US I have included an exclusive wafer thin cupcake die for each participant. Die cut as many cupcakes and ice cream treats to make your projects extra sweet! (note: the card designs in this class are similar to Kitchener 2012 card class)
2. Two double page Family themed layouts and Glitter cards:
We will have lots of fun layering beautiful pattern papers, diecuts, glossy chipboard, jewel brads, and rub-ons to create pages to capture all things family. I love the colour combinations here, greens, blues, and yellows. You may think this is cray, when I was designing this class I was thinking apple pie! I felt I was creating something yummy, comfortable, cozy, with lost of family goodness, etc. okay I better stop before you think I am totally nuts!
This is a 2 hour workshop, the first hour we will focus on our family themed layouts. For the 2nd hour we will clear away our tables and get sparkly for a burnished velvet mini techniques introduction. I have taught this at prior Scrapfests and it's normally a 3 hours workshop so I will be teaching the Cole's (shortened) version of this at Cropfest Barrie. You will still be amazed at this mess free micro-fine glitter! (I mixed up the date of the workshop at the end of the video, this workshop is offered in Barrie on Friday May 3, 2013)
