You Pull My Heartstrings!

We had our February Calendar class today and I wanted to share some of our customer’s work.  I love it when people bring pictures to class.  I also love it when people think outside the box and change-up the layout with their own creativity.

Taking classes is always so much fun!  Besides learning new techniques, taking classes is a great way to spend time with your fellow scrapping friends.  This month our layout was made with a mixture of My Mind’s Eye “Record it” line and Authentique’s “Smitten’s line.  We taught a new technique of layering papers and learning how to use a new circle cutter.  Connie and I even designed a template that allows you to cut the perfect circle in the middle of the page!  Circle’s are always fun, and they are so easy and fun to layer.  We also introduced some new pop dots that come on a roll!  They were a huge hit because you can cut them any size and you don’t have all those little squares to throw away!!

febAnd….if you want to add a cute doll to your layout, our February 12 dolls of Christmas works perfectly!  Here are some really cool examples of some layouts created in today’s class!  Take a look at the last one with the balloons!

Here’s Mrs. Jill’s creation.  She is so smart!  She always calls me before the class to ask me the size pictures she needs to bring.  When she leaves the class, her layout is really done!  Loved her pictures!!!

What a cute idea!!  Kissing your baby all over with red lipstick!  Mrs. Priscilla is going to kiss a few of the hearts with red lipstick when she gets home and place and tuck them around the picture on the right!  How cute!!!

This is Rebecca’s layout.  She’s a new scrapper, but you would never know that!  Noticed how she rearranged her layout to fit her doll.    Rebecca hates wasting any scrap paper left over, so she took the extra left over hearts and tucked them at the bottom.  She also used the x-tra paper strips that were cut off the bottom of the page to place across the Polaroid’s.  Why didn’t we think of that???   It’s funny how the teacher’s learn things from our customer’s in class too!

And Mrs. Cheryl created this cute look by pulling her doll kit apart and crunching the doily  behind the hearts.  Also, After adding her doll to the layout, she got really creative and changed the hanging hearts to balloons!  Love it!!!

Can’t wait to see what all the customers in our other 3 classes this week will create!!
