Last Wednesday I held my very first scrapbooking class. A little bit chaotic, but I have learnt heaps from it and hopefully the next one will run much smoother. All in all though felt it was a big success though the proof will be by how many come back next time!
We used the Simply Scrappin’ Petal Party kit to make a 12x12 layout. This was my suggested layout (cased from somewhere??).
I also put out quite a few other bits and pieces for them to use, as well as a variety of punches but now feel that I gave them too much choice considering that most of them were new to scrapbooking and could probably have felt more comfortable with just a few materials to work with. Next time I will set a specific project for them and give them individual kits ready to make up with their own photos (will let them know beforehand what the theme will be).
I had also done four vintage type layouts on 6x6 cardstock (I used the 12x12 Kraft cut into four) as I am starting to put together an album using old family photos. Was really pleased with how these turned out so must finish doing more for this album.
Now isn’t that little toddler above (left) with her parents a gorgeous chubby cheeks? Hee hee it’s me. Oh I absolutely adore old photos, they are so fascinating.
