April winners & making your own embellishments

At the April Scrapbookers Club meeting, we talked about ‘making our own embellishments’. I showed some examples of how I use die cuts on my layouts and gave a demonstration on how you can use your Big Shot or Cuttlebug to cut some amazing shapes and use them for your scrapbooking :)

The girls that were able to come along had a go at using left over flowers, ribbon, bling and of course all our Spellbinders & Do Hickies to make their own embellishments, and I think they were surprised how quickly they were able to make something very effective.

The Fantasy & Fairytale layouts were fabulous, everyone did really well with this theme and most people enjoyed it :). Some, like myself, did find the concept of 'fantasy' hard to work out in our heads, however once we started it all come together!

This month we asked Paper Flourish teacher, Janine Koczwara, to have a look at the layouts and choose her top 5 using the theme as a guide and what appealed to her personal tastes. Our Winner for April is Joanne Rebeck with her layout Childhood Games. Congratulations Joanne, come on in and collect your prize :)

  1. Joanne Rebeck for Childhood Games

5. Heather Carter

I am sure some of you are wondering why the very talented Sylvia Perry has again not featured in the top 5, Sylvia has asked to be excluded from the judging :)
