Layouts from #bbcrop in Berlin


Sunday, October 9, 2016

Cathleen Kick invited me to teach at #bbcrop in Berlin the first weekend in October and I jumped at the chance! I love teaching! On Friday night I drove the 4 hours up to Berlin and admired the pink clouds from the setting sun.
We went straight to dinner and you can bet I devoured every last bite of both my dinner and dessert. Heaven!
The next morning started off a beautiful day, then there was a freak rain storm, then it was a beautiful day again. The weather in Germany is so sporadic!
For breakfast I loaded up on carbs at a nearby McDonald's. Gotta get that energy for being on my feet the next 8 hours :)
Pretty plants that remind me of Christmas. | Cathleen & me.
The workshop was held above a fire station. Nice to know we had emergency backup right below us!
 
All set up and ready to go.
 Let the workshop... begin!
 We made 4 layouts in 6 hours. I have to keep everyone on their toes and working at a fast pace to complete all the pages on time!

A big smile = yay!
Pop up shop.
 I got to see the super talented Laureen and Sarah again!
While everyone was stitching for a half hour I got to sit and relax for a bit. Mwhahaha, mean teacher ;)

Here are the layouts we made:

SWEET LIFE by Paige Evans

DESCRIPTION: Slightly different take on the "die cut background with patterned paper pieces" from the ones I taught in Munich/Bamberg/Spain. Always a fun technique to teach and try!

JOURNALING SAYS: You loved walking around Mykonos, Greece with your sunglasses and all, and I loved all the colors :)

HOW TO: Trim Paper 07 into strips, fold the strips in half, trace the petal onto each pattern, then cut the petals out. Spray the back of the die cut with adhesive then add the patterned paper petals. Secure the petals with tape. Use dimensional adhesive to place die cut on Paper 21, carefully placing a doily behind before pressing in place. Layer photo, chipboard floral wreath sticker, top of the torn “sweet life” tag, geotag wood veneer, and banner die cut. Journal at the bottom and stamp hearts below. Cover the cluster with scratch paper then drop black paint around; set aside to dry.

SUPPLIES: Patterned paper, chipboard stickers, Thickers, die cuts, wood veneer, roller stamp: Take Me Away by Paige Evans/Pink Paislee; Cardstock, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Watercolors: Loew Cornell; Ink: StazOn

FANTASTIC AWESOME COLORS by Paige Evans

DESCRIPTION: I was trying to think of a layout that would be fun to teach so I was flipping through all the papers and found the paper blocked Paper 09 and that's when inspiration for this page struck!

JOURNALING SAYS: The colors in the town of Burano Italy are beyond anything I've ever seen before! We had so much fun just walking around taking pictures every inch of the way. You're so darling sweet Jane!

HOW TO: Trim sections from Paper 09 and a section of the gray from Paper 13 then adhere them onto Paper 04 – bend up the edges. Layer a photo over a pink frame, purple frame, and “hello, you” tag die cuts in the center. Add pony and “heck yes” chipboard stickers and “carpe diem” die cut on top. Place color-on-color chipboard stickers, die cuts, buttons, and wood veneer to the paper strips. Journal on the blue paper.

ADORBS by Paige Evans

DESCRIPTION: I love finding ways to use the tearaway strips at the bottoms of all the patterned papers - waste not, want not!

JOURNALING SAYS: It's so handy far technology has come so I can just snap photos of you on a whim! No special occasion, you were just sitting on the couch enjoying your fruit juice and looking adorbs!

HOW TO: Trace the shared heart die cut using a pencil then outline the heart with adhesive – add more adhesive inside the heart. Trim off the patterned paper tabs from all of the patterned papers. Starting at the bottom and working to the top, place the patterned paper strips to fill in the heart – trim any excess to form the heart. Layer two photos on the bottom right. Tuck a blue journaling card die cut, torn bottom of a die cut tag, and pink “#loveya” tag die cut under the photos. Cut the floral wreath die cut in half and tuck the halves under the photos. Place mint chipboard heart sticker between the pictures. Create “ADORBS” title using Thickers in the middle. Create three clusters with wood veneer, chipboard stickers, and buttons then write journaling next to the title. Add roller stamping by the clusters. Place a heart chipboard sticker and heart button at the very bottom. Splatter white paint on the top left and bottom right corners then set aside to dry.

LOVE YOU by Paige Evans

DESCRIPTION: Grids, stitching, fussy cutting, the works!

JOURNALING SAYS: These are my all-time favorite photos of you two and my very favorite to scrapbook. All of the colored backdrops coordinate with pretty much everything!

HOW TO: Pierce a hole every 1cm through the pencil lines then erase the pencil lines. Choose 4 coordinating colors of thread and trim an arm’s length from each color – backstitch through the pierced holes. Drop watercolors (a different color in each section so 9 colors) across the page then set aside to dry. Top left: Add a photo, chipboard flower sticker, die cut frame, green bow button, and “take me away” roller stamping. Top middle: Hand cut flowers from Paper 02 and loosely adhere so the leaves bend up. Top right: Adhere photo, wood veneer hexagon, chipboard leaf and bow stickers, and hearts roller stamping. Middle left: Add “LOVE” Thickers and “YOU” wood veneer. Middle: Layer photo, floral frame and “carpe diem” chipboard stickers, and “weekend vibes” roller stamping. Middle right: Adhere wood veneer scalloped circle over “keepin’ it real” embroidery hoop die cut then adhere along with a yellow bow button – journal on the left. Bottom left: Adhere photo, chipboard leaf sticker, blue bow button, and “x”s roller stamping. Middle bottom: Hand cut flower from Paper 10 then adhere along with torn off bottom of “Love You” die cut tag. Bottom right: Layer photo, die cut frame, wood veneer circle, and “all the colors” roller stamping.
