We all probably have a zillion birthday party photos stashed away from years gone by. Do you ever get bored with the same old birthday pages? Well I sure do. This class will show you how to add a little ZING to your typical birthday pages. We will be talking about using brads as a decorative element on your page, as opposed to using them solely to attach things to your layouts or cards. This is a great way to make use of the stash of brads you have been collecting. Also, we will discuss incorporating movement in your design. For my layout I am showing movement of the candle blowing with ribbons and other embellishments. However, don’t shy away from this class just because you don’t have a similar photograph. I’ll show you how you can add movement to your page with the ribbon forming balloon strings, party streamers, etc. So bring your birthday celebration photos (kid or adult - everyone loves a party after all!) and let’s get scrapping. Oh, and one more thing . . . if you want to have your page completed when you walk out the door, you will want to prepare your journaling in advance. The journaling space is approximately 6 inches wide by 2 inches tall, printed on white cardstock.
See you soon!! -- Connie

Below is a list of supplies that might be helpful to bring along to the class.
However, please still come even if you don’t have all of these supplies, as I will bring my own stash to share if needed.
