We're getting set for our August Workshops in Whitehall this Thursday 20th August from 7pm to 10pm and Churchtown on Saturday 22nd August from 9.30am to 12.30pm and thought we'd share a couple of sneak peeks with you. There are a small number of Workshop places left so if you'd like to join us for a few hours of crafting email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone/text us on 086-2065346.
For this month's Workshops we're using the Industrial Park Collection from Scrap Within Reach. Perfect for boy/man themed layouts the colours are cool denim blue, browns, grey and mustard yellow. We'll be giving you a bumper kit this month with double sided papers, a diecut paper, a pack of rubons and a pack of chipboard letters.
We're chosen the title "This Boy" for our Workshop layout, but as you'll have a sheet of alphabet stickers all to yourself, you can choose whatever title you wish.
To complete the Workshop you'll need to bring along:
a scissors, ruler, glue and a paper trimmer plus a few extras, sticky foam pads, distress ink (we used Walnut Stain) and an edger punch if you have one (we used a Fiskars Scalloped Edge Eyelet Punch).
The photos you'll need are:
for Layout 1 - two 4" x 6" photographs (landscape format) preferably from the same series of photos - PRINT THEM WITH A WHITE BORDER or matt them on white cardstock and
for Layout 2 - one 4" x 6" photo and two credit card sized photos in either landscape or portrait format (we used all landscape) preferably from the same series of photos - AGAIN PRINT THEM WITH A WHITE BORDER or matt them on white cardstock.
We'll be doing some embossing using embossing folders and a Big Shot so if you have any embossing folders please your favourites along.
And now for some really exciting news:
We're delighted to announce a new Queen of the Crop Award where you could be the lucky winner of a free Workshop place. We'll be crowning a new Queen of the Crop each month and all you have to do is attend one of our Workshops, then upload your completed Workshop layout to your personal online album at TheScrapbookStore.ie Gallery (within 7 days). We'll then pick a random uploaded entry and if it's you, you'll be crowned Queen of the Crop and enjoy a free place at the following months' Workshop and enjoy a fantastic crafty day (or night) out, on us! It's as simple as that.
