CTMH Rustic Fundamental LOs

Hello, tomorrow I have the pleasure of teaching a scrapbooking class in Boston.  I met my friend Tamika at work.  I'll never forget the day I entered her office and noticed a card on her desk.  The card was hand-made and the paper line was Basic Grey, one of my favorites. 

I said is that paper from Basic Grey?   And Tamika replied yes.  The rest was history... we started talking from card-making to scrapbooking to paper lines to machines to LOs to blogs to design teams and so on. 

When you have a passion for crafting you just love when you meet others who share this passion.  And you want to share this passion with new people too.

For the class, I chose to use the Rustic Fundamental paper line.  I added in the new Sea-glass line to give it a soft punch of color.  Eight crafters will be joining us tomorrow with varying degrees of skill.  Thus I kept the first LO on the simple side. 

 I added a hidden journaling card and 1 4X6 Flip/Flap (above the word LOVE).

Popping up the words OUR HOME and inking all edges highlights the elements.
To add space for more pictures, I created a film strip.  This strip can hold 3 3X3 pics.

For the second LO, I cut out some shapes using the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge, one of which I dry embossed. 

I also used CTMH's new 4X6 vertical Memory Protectors for pocket scrapbooking.  The Memory Protectors not only let you add more pictures, but also let you add more space for creativity/design.

Here is the second side of the Memory Protector.  I added a Journaling tab and stamped a camera since my daughter was posing so much!

You may notice those gold accents with red coloring.  I used the CTMH Picture my Life Cards and inked them in Ruby and Cranberry to bring out the red in her outfit.

I still have extra paper left over from this kit and will quickly make up some Fall cards to teach as well.  I hope the crafters enjoy learning some new techniques tomorrow!

If you are interested in purchasing this kit, then please let me know.  I will be teaching this class at the November 5th crop in Norwell as well.

Thanks, Maureen
