I am going to try this time to keep up with posting regularly, mainly because I enjoy reading so many of the blogs I find through friends so hopefully you'll be able to catch mine.
Catch up time is to start blogging about the scrapbooking class at Marally Craft, taught by the Marvelous Mary Bennetts (http://mbennetts.blogspot.com.au/). So if you follow Mary you might find my next few blogs interesting because I want to take you through each class so track my own development and give you an insight to what a lovely class it is to be a part of.
Just in case you are ever travelling through Orange NSW, you could take part one day.
Ok, so I would like to travel all the way back to our first class on the 10th November 2012...
Mary's layout for us was made using Butterfly Kisses from Kaisercraft, as we are quite limited at Marally Craft to mostly Kaiser products so all future layouts will be more than likely to be Kaisercraft.
I think it is such a good starting point for a class, we were all beginners and the layering was perfect to set us on our scrapbooking journey. We learnt to ink the edges of the layers to soften them, we also used a corner punch to round the corners for an even softer look.
Here is my layout from the day. Because Butterfly Kisses was a little too bold for the photo I wanted to use I chose to branch out and use Save the Date pattern papers also from Kaisercraft.
Mary, showed us how to create bunting with cricles of pattern paper and bakers twine
In the Save the Date collection the sticker sheet has perfectly co-ordinated pin wheels so I chose to use these as my embellishments.
I had a fantastic day and it shows with me holding up the nearly finished page below.
Thank you Mary!
Hope you can see my simple layout is near to Mary's more detailed layout.
See you soon!
