DRCC Session 3 Class #7

This started out as a fairly simple layout, I added a touch of Sunset here and there and then I found these great chipboard banner pieces. It was easy enough to cover them, it was adding the 3D element. Folded paper just didn't seem to work. So off I went to 2 different scrapbooking stores. I finally found some Olive (I was looking for a dark navy color, but no luck) grosgrain ribbon with stitching so that I could pull the inside stitch together to create the circle. After that it was easy enough to add some cute stamps and glue dot it all together. 

Just a reminder to my students, class is on Thursday this week. I will see you then!

DRCC Session 3 Class #6

I have been wanting to use the wide chocolate and colonial white ribbon for quite some time now, but I just never seemed to make it work on a layout. This layout originally has a piece of paper in place of the ribbon, but I wanted to bring a different color onto this layout other than blue, considering that my pictures have red as the dominant color. I hope that you also think that the blue and brown balance out all of the red. I used rub on letters for the title and added some scalloped 3D accents.

DRCC Session 3 Class #5

I slightly struggled with this layout as I wasn't sure what to put in the blank space on the left side of the layout or how to do the title. I finally decided to stamp my title in Twilight and add a bit of flourish with a small flower stamp in Cocoa on each letter. If you have extra pictures, which I may look for to go with this event, you can always add more on the right side of the layout. 

To fill in the blank space on the left side, I stamped a large flourish and then created a pocket for my journaling tag. I affixed the brad through both ends of the ribbon, but hid the back of the brad behind the flower. 

DRCC Session 3 Class #4

This is always a beautiful layout to do. The half circle on the left side of the layout just brings great compliments to the picture. I was out of Pear cardstock and wanted to accent the green so I took the paper butterflies and inked them with Pear ink on the back side, the front side of the butterflies have writing. 

To make the title extra special, I demonstrated a faux 3D stamping technique. First I stamped the image in the same color ink as the cardstock. Then I stamped the same image on top in white daisy ink, but slightly off-centre of the original stamped image. It gives the stamp more dimension. 

DRCC Session 3 Class #3

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted. I forgot to post this class because I was waiting for my pictures to be developed and then I just forgot. I also went to our bi-annual Scrapbooking Retreat in Banff May 25-27. Had a blast, other than having the flu for one day. So I'm catching up on my blogging.

This layout, we used a border punch to create the waves. We also heat embossed "making", but used a Slice title for "waves". Still love this paper and it's perfect for anything water related since we so obviously weren't at a beach for these pictures, just playing in the pool.
