Your Heatgun.........

This layout was embellished with just paper, blings and ENMARC goodies dressed up with Donsie's heatgun and RANGER embossing powders. The basic design of the page was inspired by a layout done by Jowilna for Le Shabby Cafe. I used the Glitz girls' Love Nest collection paper for this layout.

Just look at these garden tools! So lifelike. The Ranger Rust Embossing powder gives the perfect "used" look to the tools' heads.

And the watering can is dressed up beautifully - just look at the detail on the Strawberry!

Last but not least is the wheelbarrow. What have you done with your embossing powders and Heatgun lately? Remember that we sell over 30 different colours of embossing powders at Scrapbook Studio!

Tilda and a watering can......

Donsie did it again!! She took the watering can in the new Magnolia Magazine issue, and made it her own!! Just look at this work of art! She enlarged the template to make it big enough for Tilda to fit on. And her beautiful made flowers .....as we all know, Donsie is the flower queen!!

A side view of the stunning little can. You can put some sweeties in as a gift for someone, a small bottle of perfume, or anything that will fit in. Well done, Donsie!! Watch this space - the class is coming soon!!

More Creations with My Mind's Eye

Another layout using the My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary range. Lots of banners and rosettes adorn the page. Quick and easy. As you can see, two of the photos were not great in the lighting department, but by matting them on a lighter cardstock and sanding the edges, it almost highlights the picture and it appears less dark. The client wanted the photos scrapped as is, and not cropped too much. We just trimmed the edges slightly to make three fit together and a space for the quote on the left side. Have you made a layout with less than perfect photos? Send them to us by email cariena@scrapbookstudio.co.za or share them on our Facebook page.

Classes and more classes...

We had a very, very busy week at the shop last week - no less than 5 classes in 5 days!! Sjoe! Poor Donsie was classing out of her ears and Elizna also had her hands full with the ladies at the paperbag class!

Here is Donsie with 7 of her ladies at one of the 3 flower classes she had last week. Yes, Donsie had to repeat the flower class 3 times, and we think half of Jeffreys Bay now knows how to make these flowers - the list of flowers you can make just grows and grows, so soon we will have to have version 2 of the class!!

Some of the samples of the ladies' flowers. I must say, the silence that falls over the table when the girls start making their own flowers is deafening! At first there is ooh, and aaah and a buzz of noise, and then, suddenly, silence..........that's when I normally sneak up on them and go WHA!!!! Hehehehe!!

This is the paperbag album Elizna taught to 9 very excited ladies! It is a STUNNING work of art!

Paperbag ladies getting ready...........

And of course we HAVE to fill the tanks!! All that classing makes you build up an appetite!!

Remember that we will structure your own class for you, or for you and your group - tailormade. From Scrapbook Pages to cards, mixed media, colouring techniques, ink, stamping, using templates and much more! We LOVE Scrapbooking and it is our mission to prove to people that the hobby does not have to break the bank, and you can enjoy it with what you have available. Happy Scrapping and see you at our next class!
