The One with Ebernscrappt 9.26


Sunday, September 27, 2015

Yesterday I had the opportunity to teach again at Ebernscrappt! Here are some pictures from the day and the layouts we made:

I was stopped at a light and looked over and saw some pretty flowers.
 The cute town of Ebern!

I set up a "flea market" and displayed a few mini albums, coptic books, and a scrapbook filled with layouts for class members to flip through.

At 10am sharp (cuz that's how Germans roll, and I like it!) we began!
There were 17 attendees and each one created a pair of lovely layouts!
Here is the first page we made:

STORY by Paige Evans

DESCRIPTION: I made a similar layout in Paige's Pages 04 at Big Picture Classes and wanted to try the technique again, adding a few more embellishments.

JOURNALING SAYS: I love taking pictures of you when you're not looking. We were in Bruges waiting for a bus. Love you!

HOW TO: Trim (17) 2” squares then adhere them to the back of a die cut floral cardstock base using foam adhesive. Use watercolors to outline each flower – matching the color of paint to the color of the patterned paper. Layer a photo over gold polka dot paper (tear off the bottom edge) and adhere it to the bottom left corner. Tuck a piece of wreath chipboard and doily transparency under the right then a flower and journaling spot die cut under the left of the photo. Place a chipboard “story” on the bottom right corner of the photo and journal with a pen below the title. Tear off a piece of gold glitter tape and place it on the top right corner of the layout then embellish with a wood veneer arrow, chipboard sentiment, flower die cut, and a chipboard banner. Embellish the inside of the die cut flowers with badges, chipboard stickers, and flower die cuts.

SUPPLIES: Cardstock, adhesive, pen: American Crafts; Patterned paper, badges, die cut flowers, journaling spot, wood veneer arrow, gold glitter tape, doily transparency: Heidi Swapp; Chipboard: Crate Paper; Watercolors: Loew Cornell; Die cut machine: Silhouette Cameo; Floral cut file: Paige Evans

Sometimes the room would get completely silent. I'm used to it by now - they concentrate very hard on the task at hand!
After lunch we started on the second layout:

DESCRIPTION: I love layering color-on-color in a 2x2 grid so that's what we learned how to do!

JOURNALING SAYS: Our food was so incredibly delicious, I want more!

HOW TO: Trim all of the die cuts from the patterned paper and sort them (along with the package of “Let’s Eat” Elle’s Studio die cuts) by color: pink/red, blue/green, yellow, and gray. Using a template, cut a polaroid frame from pink, yellow, green, and gray patterned papers then adhere them in a grid on a blue striped background. Add a photo inside two of the frames. Embellish each frame with the same colors of supplies – die cuts, enamel dots, wood veneer buttons, etc. Place blue letter stickers in the blue frame for a title and journal on the gray frame. Splatter watercolors over the frames to finish.

SUPPLIES: Patterned paper, die cuts, wood veneer: Elle’s Studio; Wood buttons, enamel dots, adhesive, pen: American Crafts

The final step: splattering watercolors!

Hope to be back at Ebernscrappt again soon!
