Dublin Scrapbooking Workshop–Thursday November 17th at 7pm

Hi everyone,


Just announcing details of our November Workshop at Whitehall Parish Centre this Thursday November 17th 2011 from 7pm to 10pm. For the month that's in it, we'll be hopefully brightening up the dark evening by using the new Basic Grey Picadilly Collection of papers and embellishments.

The kit (seen below) includes: 6 sheets of Basic Grey Picadilly 12" x 12" double sided papers, 1 sheet of BG Picadilly Elements Stickers and 1 pack of Basic Grey Picadilly Petals.

This month, we’re creating two layouts:


The first layout is open themed, with a blue colour scheme so it would suit photos with blues, reds and yellows in them. I used two 4” x 6” portrait format photos with white borders in this layout. I chose pictures of a little boy wearing a blue babygro against a blue background for this layout.

The second layout is again open themed with a green and red colour scheme so it would suit photos with greens, reds and blues in them. For this layout I used a 4” x 6” landscape format photo (no border) but you could use two 4” x 6” landscape format photos instead. I chose a close up photo of a little girl wearing green and sitting on a red slide for this layout.

You’ll also need to bring the following:
A paper trimmer
Glue
Foam Pads
A 1.5” circle punch
Green Ink (I used Versa Tea Leaves)
A white gel pen and a thin black felt tip pen
a small piece of sandpaper or a sanding tool
Red alphabet stickers (I used Basic Grey Jovial stickers) to add a title. It’s a great chance to use up those alpha stickers you have hanging around so bring along a selection of browns, blues, greens, yellow or black too.

Workshop places cost €25.00 and can be booked online HERE or paid for on the night. If available, spare kits can be purchased online about a week after the Workshop.
If you'd like to attend the Workshop just email workshops@thescrapbookstore.ie or telephone 086-8441159.

Hope to see you there,
Annamarie
