more sunday, sunday!!!

here is some more info for the sunday classes...sorry it has taken me so long to put it up for you!! this is another 8x8 layout..for this one you will need at least 2 photos but 3 if you have them!!! we crop the main photo to 3 1/2 x 5 inches..the others will depend on your individual photos....we sand, stamp and use punches for this layout as well as a lttle bit of doodling!!!

for our sixth and final page of the class you have a choice!! woohoo..freedom..hehehehehe,....you can either do the other half of the "four flowers" page i posted earlier ( as it is originally a double page) ....or should you wish you could do it as a separate single page and change from pink to a beautiful purple i purchased just for this page!!! it looks awesome in both colours!!! you will need 2 6x4 landscape photos ....if neither of these ideas catch your attention then i have a sketch layout for you to do instead...if you do the sketch you will need roughly 7 or 8 photos that can be cropped a lot!!!!.we will be using cream and navy papers for this one.......well i hope i have made a little bit of sense???? if you have any questions just drop me an email...

workshop stuff!!

here are some of the workshop pages for this month...more will be added tommorrow night...... the first is a 12x12 single layout from Kaszazz using the "four flowers" rollergraph...because the bazzill used is bright i have used a black and white 5x7 landscape photo...you will need a 6x4 or 5x7 landscape photo to complete this layout..... either colour or blk/white will work...
this is the first of our 8x8 layouts for this month using the kaiser flutterby papers, some kaiser pearls, kaiser flowers and some really cute stamps!! you will need a 5x7 which can be cropped to 5x5 1/2......you will be able to stamp more of a title if you wish......
this layout is again an 8x8 and uses the basic grey archaic papers..i just love these....i have used an older photo of my dad and uncle for this one...you will need a 6x4 that can be cropped just a little bit...you also distress the edges of everything on this one and paint your chippy dinosaur....this page looks so much better in real life than in this photo..the colours are great together and the distressing adds really good dimension that you can't see in this photo.....
for this 8x8 of my gorgeous ethie at the olympics we use cosmo crickets "cogsmo" range.....you will be able to vary your layout a little because there are different papers for you to choose from for your squares and tags etc......i have used a 6x4 cropped and i also silhouetted another photo and put it in the corner.....it will be totally up to you wether you include a silhouetted photo or not......

i will post more sample pages tommorrow for you so stay tuned!!!!
