This is what Lyn Dwyer loved to say about her first class . I was delighted to have been invited to my first Stampin' Up! Class today at Neralees house in Bairnsdale. Teresa taught us how to create 3 fun and gorgeous Valentine Cards. I was very impressed with the quality of the stamps and punches that we used. I learned some fabulous new stamping techniques such as huffing on the in between stamping. The class was a great opportunity to socialise and make new friends. Just loved it!
Thanks Teresa & thanks to Neralee for inviting me!

This is what Linda Brown loved to share with you all. I loved making the Valentines Card and

Children Scrapbooking

Join in and have fun with your Photos Layout and more at a scrapbook workshop or class.

When I do a scrapbook workshop I will always try to do a layout that you can add your photo to when you get home. I find that the ladies love this because they don't have to bring photos with them and they can enjoy just leaning different ways to use ink and stamping and go home with two 6' x6' beautiful layout
Take a look at the 6"x 6" Scrapbook layouts made with leftovers from workshops. I love to work with the Brayer it gives it a great background add a little masking for the moon add a reflection to the bottom of the page give it a silhouette look buy just using two colours and build up on the colour to create lighter and darker areas. Add you stamp I have used the Pocket Silhouettes Stamp Set page 72 code 115852 $33.95 from the 2009-2010 idea book & catalogue

Now this is the same as the top layout only I have added a photo of my grandson Jake. I love the simplicity of this layout This becomes my double layout with the fun page

I had these flower left over from a card workshop the Stamp Set I used was Embrace Life page 83 idea book & catalogue 2009-2010 I also painted the leaves and flower with an Aqua painter pg 156 Stamping out in Staz On (pg 156) Black Ink let dry and paint with Real Rust and old olive inks pg 128. I have matted the photo of my Granddaughter Emily In handsome hunter card stock pg 128

for the other side of my lay out I have keep the theme going adding two flowers one the same as other side and one painted in taken with teal also have matted my photo (Krystal and Emily)
in handsome hunter Card stock.

In the next two layouts below I have done sponging this is a really great way to use left over card stock and build a background for your photos as I have done with Bella I have chosen not to Matt these two photos as they are dark and I have done a light background. I have also added a a card stock at the bottom to look like hills then use my stampin' write marker to highlight the hills, Then cut out template for the clouds in the sky and sponge in pacific point and the ground in Kiwi kiss . Stamp sets Embrace life for leaves and Flight of the Butterfly pg 82-83 Inks always artichoke for leaves and tangerine tango for butterfly's

This second layout complements the fist so when their side by side it tell a story
Markers are a great way to get diffrent backgroudsDesigner series paper (pg 132-135) is also a great way to bring in with some stamps use stamps as a embelishment as I have with the flower Bella having a great day in the garden this layout gos well together. Think about double layout and make a story for your scrapbooking. Stamping over DSP is an other wonderful way to bring your page to lfe Using the pick a petal Stamp set on pg 96 I have stamp over DSP to make this flower. Bellas day at the park. This side I done half a flower still works in well with the layout. Tempates: Templting is a anther great way for creating a background draw a tree all whatever you would like to do then use a craft knife and cut out put the peice your cut out aside and use the template by placing over your page and use a sponge and sponge with ink then move template along untill you have what you wont with sponging and to the deep of colour then place your photo behind your template as I have done with Krystal in photo below. Punch out some stars and and some two way glue and then Dazzling diamonds some ribbon and you have a wonderful page
This side I have left photo off so you can see the efect I have done
These two layouts are done on glossey white card and sponging the bird I have stamped out then cut around and using stampin'Dimensionals (pg 154) on the back this gives it a look that the bird is standing away from the page (hard to see in photo) the Stamp set is the Good Friend pg 99 and Trendy Trees pg 99 add some brads to this second layout simple but fun to do.
