Always a favorite class, Embellish It’s Latest and Greatest with Shelby Dredge. We always get to play with the new Basic Grey and Fancy Pants lines. And we always end up with 4 layouts that we like and will use. And we always pick up the 2nd page kit you can buy at the booth for $12. They make for good pages that you can get a lot of pictures on.
This layout uses Basic Grey Green at Heart
Clearly Creative Acrylic by Story Tellers Club – The sample mini album picture looked cute, so against my better judgement I signed up. I was pretty sure from my past shopping that their kits weren’t really something I liked. We got to the class and the project was different than the sample, but still along the same lines. But we didn’t think the colors matched well, the class moved too slow, working ahead was a bit tough because the instructions were missing some things. So we just winged it. I wasn’t really thrilled with the finished product, and although I finished it I didn’t put any pictures in it, so I didn’t photograph it. If you don’t mind the “it looks like ribbon but it is just a photo copy of ribbon die cut look (but not really you have to cut them out yourself) than maybe you won’t mind this class.
Ribbon Girl taught by Queen & Company
I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with this layout based on the sample, but I liked that we would get some ideas for ribbon, and my friends wanted to take it so I signed up too. I LOVED this class! The teacher was entertaining, we had plenty of time to work on our layouts, they had giveaways where it seemed like just about everyone won something. And we made these cute ribbon flowers on our pages too. Of course although I am a mama of boys, I do have 6 nieces. So I just had to dig out some pictures of some of them to finish this layout. I have to say it worked perfeclty for these pictures from Christmas morning. Mike’s brother and his family spent Christmas with us last year and their 4 girls were all in their pink PJ’s Christmas morning. So they were perfect for this layout.
Live In the Moment Designed by Ali Edwards taught by Technique Tuesday – This is the 2nd Technique Tuesday class I have taken and I am always so inspired to stamp on my pages more after taking the class. The class kit is pretty generous with product with a few leftover pieces and a stamp set you get to keep. We made the left side of the layout (which is a shaped layout not on a background) in class and I finished the second one at home. I also ended up getting lots of TT goodies back at their booth.
I Dare You taught by Kim Kesti for Creating Keepsakes – I liked this class based on Elizabeth Kartchners book 52 More Scrapbooking Challenges. The layouts were cute, quick and easily adaptable. The misting got a bit messy, with the first layout if you were one of the last to go up. The bottles were a bit clogged and the boxes to mist in were a bit saturated. We had to cut lots of circles so sharing the Coluzzle took a bit of time, but other than that we mostly finished up these 1st two layouts in class. The 3rd layout was quick to put together later. More memories quickly scrapped.
So that’s it. All in all a good CKC again. Can’t wait until next year and I hope we get 2 again.
