Sneak Peaks of Narelle's 2014 classes!

Hi everyone

Here's some sneak peaks of my Term 1 classes  for 2014!

On February 7th (10.30am and 7.00pm) we'll be doing a Christmas class!  I've already created this class for you so you know what sort of photo you need to get your family to pose for this festive season!  You'll a 5x7 Portrait photo- so make sure you get the family gathered around the tree this Christmas!  The layout uses traditional Christmas colours and the word "joy" and the date.

This layout is now on display at Scraphaven so you can pop in and have a look and book your spot now (there is a very strictly limited number of kits for this and stock absolutely can not be reordered so we will need to ask you to pay your deposit to secure your spot in this class.  As I write this post there are only 10 kits left!!!).  With the limited number of kits available-  this will be an "in-store" only class.

My other set of classes for Term One are going to use the Fancy Pants Happy Go Lucky Range.  This will be a Kit Class where we'll be working with the kit that has been put together by Fancy Pants to create a couple of layouts over  two weeks on March 21st and March 28th ) 10.30am and 7.00pm.  We have pre-ordered some kits but cant be sure that we'll be able to get more, so to guarantee your spot in the class please see Di and pay your deposit for the class.

I wish you and your family a blessed Christmas and a year to come full of happiness and most importantly GOOD HEALTH!!

What you'll need for Narelle's class this Friday

Hi everyone

Here's some very generous sneak peak images of the double layout we'll be completing this week.

For the photos you'll need:-
  • One 5x7 Landscape
  • Three 6x 4 Landscapes or a combination of 3x4 portrait images (as an example in the girl layout above I have used four portrait images and one landscape, and in the boy layout below I have used 3 6x4 landscapes)
  • Please note in the images that the right hand side of the 5x7 photo has paper overlapping it, as does about one quarter of one of the 6x4 landscape photos.
  • For this class its definitely going to be best to bring your photos along on the day.  Adding them later is going to be much trickier.

You'll also need to bring:-
  • Your MME Kit and enamel dots from last week's class
  • Paper trimmer 
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Double sided tape
  • Black, Dark Grey or Charcoal Ink

This week's class layout is based on this sketch by BasicGrey sketch artist Susan Stringfellow.
