We will once again be offering eight classes for delegates to choose from, seven will be scrapbook pages and one will be a project. We will have two guest designers to offer classes in different styles and from a number of perspectives. As usual you will have a dedicated cropping space for the day in the main cropping hall and classes will be held in a seperate classroom. Tea, coffee and soft drinks are unlimited throughout the day and we will have afternoon tea with a choice of cakes! The shop will also be on hand all day for those essential purchases!
This will be our last crop for 2010 so if you fancy a day dedicated to yourself and your craft then why not join us for a great day!

Not so Shabby Chic
This gorgeous page is perfect for oodles of photos in a range of sizes; a 5" x 3" landscape, a 3" x 2" landscape, 2.75" x 2" portrait and two 3" x 3" photos.
You'll need to pack ink pads in pale pink and green (sample used Stampin Up in Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery), EK Success Retro Flower punch large and medium (available in the classroom), a few mini brads for flowers, a spritz bottle and 3d foam pads.
Rich purples and browns contrast with cream and fresh blue in this pretty and fun page that would suit feminine photos. The sample uses one 6" x 4" portrait photo and two 3" x 4" landscape pics (these can be swapped for a second 6" x 4" portrait if you prefer). You'll need a burgundy inkpad (sample used Yinks in Indigo), a craft knife and cutting mat for some optional intricate cutting, 6-7 brads for flower centres, 3d foam pads, a scrap of narrow ribbon or some embroidery floss and some optional adhesive crystals.
A Whiter Shade of Pale
This project uses two landscape 6" x 4" photos and the grey and white colour scheme would work with soft/natural/romantic or feminine photos. You will need to bring along a grey inkpad (the sample uses Distress Ink in Pumice), a small single hole punch (sample used the small hole on the Crop-a-dile), 3d foam pads, a decorative border punch, 2.5" circle or scalloped circle punch, 1.5" and 1.25" circle punches (punches will be available in the classroom) and a pair of tweezers.

Back to Basics
The very last class for our crop on Sunday has just arrived - talk about going to the wire!! We think this was worth waiting for though, the soft greys and whites in the kit will work with so many different themes of photos plus you will learn a fab technique to make your own embellishments.
Kit contains; cardstock, 3 sheets of glittered patterned papers, a title card, a whole pack of Prima flowers, a whole pack of Prima pearl swirls, ribbon, lace and flower stamens.
This kit goes on sale tonight at 8pm and if last night was anything to go by then you'll need to be super fast as we sold out in under a minute!!

This flowerful class uses the gorgeous 'Sophie' line from Bo Bunny and we have picked lots of co-ordinating products for this kit which is pretty without being too sugary sweet.
The kit contains; cardstock, 2 double sided patterned papers, 1 die-cut patterned paper, 12x12 sheet of combo stickers (alphabets, borders and embellishments) and a whole pack of Sophie fabric flowers.
We hope to be able to release the final class on Friday after we were let down on the shipment today - aaaggghhhhhh!!
