Please do not reply to this post

Hi Scrapping Friends

Poppies are all the rage in the scrapping world at the moment and this page features them "big time". We will be using cutout and stamps of these versatile flowers. Did you notice the gorgeous ribbon flowers? They are so easy to make we will have them done in no time and you can use them on cards as well as pages. Not too bulky! And, you can make them any size you want.

Pop into the shop to view the rest of the Layout.

In Class we will need ...
-usual kit of trimmer, scissors, double sided tape, foam squares and tape, ruler etc
- Distress Inks  " Fired Brick" and " Gathered Twig" .
   (If you don't have these there will be ink pads to use)
- extra sticky double sided tape. Di sells the red backed one which is perfect.
- brown marker pen ( we have these in stock for you to purchase)
- 7" x 5" landscape photo

If you would like to book into the class please contact Di on
or her mobile on 0404 266 296.

Look forward to catching up and having a fun day with you all.
 Cheers from Lyn
