What I did in class

Welcome to my craft room. We've been here for about a month and this place is still a mess. I've just been busy crafting instead of tidying.

Yesterday I went to a scrapbook layout class in Petone. I didn't get to finish this at class, but I did finish it yesterday. This is it finished minus journalling. There is handmade paper, embossed scalloped paper, bling, heat embossing, hidden photographs and journaling, and foil stickers.
A close up of the left hand page. The photographs are of an Agatha Christie book that I finished reading yesterday. The white and black paper is the handmade one. That scalloped green block with the photograph lifts up to reveal another photo and the journalling. Under the green leaves is the swirl heat embossing. It was meant to be rub ons but they didn't have any left for me so I got these stickers and we stamped the corner and heat embossed in black for the shininess would match them and to add something in the corner.
Close up of the right hand page. I can never get the stickers in a straight line so I emphasized by making them wavy. I added another piece of the green scalloped paper and used the small black bling to help it stand out. That photograph can come out of there, but I only had some scrap cream card so it probably shouldn't.

Gorgeous handmade paper and beautiful ribbon.
The heat embossed swirls under the leaves.

I am in a crafting mood, and I have dozens of photographs from Christmas to scrap so I will probably be doing that all day. The sun has started to come out and it is getting hot. I will get a blog post up over the weekend... well, try to.
