April Class gets doubled!

When we first looked at the Echo Park Happy Days, many of us thought, :Oh that is just for 50's layouts"!  But the kit can do much more.  That is what I set out to show in these layouts, which are now being added as a second class in April!  Hope you like them!


Have a great weekend!

Dave's Cave

When my friend Charlene moved into her new condo, I made a plaque for her for her new craft room. You can see it here.  I mentioned that I wanted to make one for her husband Dave, as he would now have a man cave. It was a lot of fun adding paints and distress ink and even stickles and glossy accents to the original wood plaque that I bought at JoAnn's.! I was invited to Dave and Charlene's this past Wednesday and got to give Dave his plaque in person! I think that Dave liked his plaque!

Believe it or not, I also used Jolee's Trees and mounted them on foam to give then depth and dimension. To make sure they were not too fragile, I coated them with Glossy Accents after I had shaded them. Because I didn't want the to look too glossy, I added a layer of ink on top of the Glossy Accent. I also inked the letters with Distress Ink, so they wouldn't look so lime green!

Thank you so much for looking and please feel free to leave a comment!

April Class Layouts

Hello everyone!  There are so many things that have gone on recently that I really haven't been posting much!  I  will post the April layouts, then a special project I made for a friend and an extra batch of layouts will be posted separately!  My scrapbook group asked me to use the Authentique "Loyal" kit for April.  This is a little different from what we normally are attracted to, but it will provide us with6 pages with a less frilly, girly feel.  I personally would use these for outdoor activities, sports, and boy pictures, but I'm sure that there is a lot more that they could be used for!  What would you use them for and what titles would you give these? For the record, these layouts are meant to hold as many or as few pictures as each person wants, so they are pretty open looking!

Without further ado:

I just know that these layouts will get more layers and embellishments, LOL!  

Stay tuned for the rest of the story and have a great weekend!
