DRCC Session 3 Class #2

The technique I'll be teaching this will be stamp bending. I took a stamp from the Simple Stitches set that was just dots and bent it to create the bounce for my title. I cut out Spring using my slice and used one of the opaque gems for the dot in the i. I hope to see some variations in class of this layout as I'm sure not everyone will have Easter pictures like I did. I have a great stamp set with umbrellas and rain boots that would be wonderful as part of this layout with the title being "Jump into Spring". I'll try to remember to post a pic if it is created. Or you might see me reuse that title in a different way in a future post, that's how much I like it.

DRCC Session 3 Class #1

Welcome to a new session! This one will be shorter, only 8 classes this round, until the end of June. We will be taking a break over the summer and I will be back at it in September, this time with a 12-week session.

I pulled out an oldie paper pack, so old I forget the name... sorry about that. I had some left over so I thought we'd use it in this class as I had a request for some baby girl pictures. This layout could also be used for more of a romantically themed set of pictures. We used a small rub-on in the top left corner and we will also be using the masking technique as the journaling box stamp in the middle actually includes lines in the stamp. I didn't have as much journaling as the lines suggested and I wanted to use larger writing. This also leaves the space for a quote or another picture instead of journaling. For the more labor intensive scrapper, the title letters could also be cut out individually to give it a more versatile look. We are somewhat short on time in class so I thought a title box would be more suited for the class.
