Weekend Crop ~ Classes Five & Six

Class 5 on Sunday morning was another from Elaine, although much less fiddly cutting out.  The papers used were really strident in colour and design, something I never would have chosen myself, but I think the end result looks fab!

The final class of the weekend was offered up by Sandie.  The perfect selection of papers for me to use just now.

Things I learned …

  • Travelling to the venue by train really makes you think about what you need to take with you, as opposed to what you want to take with you.
  • Scrappers are an extremely friendly bunch of people.
  • Liquid ink can go an awfully long way.
  • Poking a needle down your thumb nail really, really hurts.
  • A paper piercer will be a good investment.
  • April Showers & Storybook Cricut cartridges are going on my Christmas list.
  • Pleating cardstock is much easier if you scrunch it up first and then fold over and under.
  • I can do it all over again in late February.

  1. Yes, I only bought a paper piercer about 6 weeks ago – worth every penny!

    That top layout especially is fabulous – I love the strong contrast and it all seems to go together so well

  2. These are great layouts Ruth. The top one is not necessarily the type of paper I would buy either but I love the way the layout turned out. As for DS's layout, super cute and perfect papers/accents x

  3. Wow, Ruth, these are gorgeous layouts! I loved the photos of your hubby and DS when you posted them before…so glad to see them land in such lovely layouts.

    I have a paper piercer that I really love – it's a Tim Holtz brand and retracts into the handle for easy (and safe) storage. :o)
