October 4th Class….Yay, it’s on :) Scrapbooking night at SCRAPS in Houlton. We have taken the summer off and a few of us met throughout the summer doing some layouts and cards and I think we had a really nice time getting together and sharing ideas. Since our break, I think there has been 2 Scrapmania’s and one retreat at Toni’s camp…so much fun getting together and scrapping, sharing some details of our lives, laughing, eating, crying, scrapping, eating ( oh did I say that already, it seems at everyone of these events, we have the best food ever) If you have never gone to a Scrapmania or a Retreat…you should…it is the most relaxing time ever and with great company with the same goals of getting some nice scrapbooking pages made.
Be watching for SCRAPS big announcement…it is so exciting, if you haven’t heard already….I think you will see some new and exciting things happening at our little store. So be watching.
Onto this week’s class…I want to thank Dina L…for her wonderful cut files. We have been working together to help turn them also into MTC files, making it easier for you to have all your pieces ready to cut, add paper, hit cut…how easy peasy is that?
Recipe for Fall layout:
4 Choc Chip Cardstock cut at 6 1/4 x 4 1/4
2 Green Cardstock (your choice) 6 x4
2 PP (your choice) 6 x 4
2 Choc Chip Cardstock 4 1/4 x 4 1/4
2 Cream or Tan or Lt brown 4 x 4
2 Cream or Tan or Lt Brown 3 x 11 3/4
2 “ “ 4 1/2 x 11 3/4
2 PP ( your choice) 4 x 11 3/4
If you like the effects, I chalk all my pieces to add a little extra dimension to it. I leave about about a 1/4 inch border all the way around my layout, and in between the strips that I have on this layout. I used the Cuttlebug on my top borders, and my 4 x4 mats.
