Easter Workshop

I have been working on my April workshop.  I kept waffling about what I wanted to create - cards, scrapbook pages, albums.  I finally came up with a mini album that could also be used as a banner with an Easter theme.  Here are some pictures of the album:

Album spread out - could also be hung up as a banner.

The following pictures show the album/banner in pages of 2.  I used the Close to My Heart My Creations Mix & Mingle album. The papers are called Mayberry.  The kit colors are Cocoa, Olive, Smoothie, and Honey.  They go so well together! I used the letters from CTMH's Dimensional Elements Monograms. To keep the cost of the kit down, instead of using the actual chipboard embellishment, which would have required the purchase of five separate packs of letters, I traced the letters out on the patterned paper and then "popped" them up with 3-D foam.

I made a "pinwheel" for the left side and a "rosette" for the right side.

For these 2 pages I used a circle and square punch. For the elements on the right side, I punched the squares out and used a corner rounder on two sides to create the "new" shape.

The bunny on the left side is from the Sensational Seasons stamp set - so cute! The right side has another larger pinwheel flower with a brad through the middle.

I used a punch for the flowers on the left side which I layered and then put a brad through.  On the right side, I made another "rosette" and then punched out 2 flowers which I again layered and put a pewter filigree brad through the middle of it.

This picture shows the album/banner folded up.

The workshop will be held on April 8, 2011.  It includes a Mix & Mingle Album, a sponge dauber, a Cocoa Ink Stamp Pad (which you will keep), brads, all flowers punched out, all papers cut out.  If you can't make the class, I can send you a kit with instructions/pictures to help put the album together.
