Sneak Peeks.....

OK - so here they are as promised some sneak peeks of the classes I will be teaching at the Hyden Retreat in a couple of weeks...check out Alli and Sharon for sneak peeks of their classes which they will be putting up this week also...

We are each teaching two the six classes will comprise of four layouts and two off the page items...and a real range of styles and techniques across all classes...girly, boy stuff, heritage, single photo layouts, multiple photo's all there and lots more!

My layout class is"Fun with Felt"...felt is such an easy and fabulous way to make embellishments to suit your layout...the page can have either a single photo or several photos...will suit boy or girl photos as you choose your papers and make your embellishments to match...and I will also have other examples of ways you can use felt!

What you need for this class is...
Scraps of felt to coordinate with your photos and papers (Karen will have a range of felt in stock)
Buttons (optional)
Embroidery thread and needles
Patterned paper – one main and some scraps for
2” strip… you will need more scraps if you are not
using extra photos (see below)
Background cardstock
Lettering for title
Black Pen (for journaling or doodling – optional)
Shape templates if you have one – flowers, hearts, stars etc
Cardstock scraps for journaling strips (optional)
Main photo – 5 x 7”
Optional smaller photos 2” high….width can vary….two or three photos works well...or if you only have a main photo these small photos will be replaced with patterned paper...

My other class is Frame It! An off the page project which is almost a cross between a layout and a photo frame! These will make a wonderful Mother's Day gift...I have made one for my mum and one for me! When selecting papers for this project think about the decor or person it is for....The frame will take a 5” square photo. NOTE - Print your photo 5 ¼” or 13.5cm to allow it to fit the frame.

For this class you will need...
2 sheets of coordinating patterned paper
ribbon or ric rac to match papers
flowers or other embellishments such as stars…one large and several small if you have them…
button and brads for centres of flowers etc
embroidery thread
Paint to coordinate
Sand paper
Craft Knife
Modge Podge
Foam brush

Don't panic if you do not have everything for classes as there will be most things on hand to share and of course Karen has a fab range of stuff in her shop Scrappin' Outback!

If you have any questions just leave a comment and I shall get back to you! Lissy
