The Start of Scrap Club!

Although I offered scrapbooking classes at A Maze of Memories from 2006 when we first opened, it wasn’t until January 2011 that our current monthly scrap club started. I thought I would share the very first layout we did. The title was Just Me and I asked everyone to bring a photo of themselves – sound familiar?
The base is patterned paper, and a large circle has been hand stitched on top.

A large tag pulls out from behind the photo mat so there is plenty of space for journaling. I added a decorative edge with a punch.
I used a Hero Arts flower stamp set to make the flowers.
They were stamped onto a selection of patterned papers and cut out.
Glossy Accents has been added to the flower centres.
I cut the title using a new machine on the crafting market called a ….Cricut! It wasn’t possible in those days to manipulate and weld images like today.
So, how about scraplifting my original design yourself?
And have you spotted my mistake on the layout?

    I was at the first scrapbook class, and although I’ve moved away I still check your blog most days I’m going to miss you, all the very best for your retirement. I still scrapbook but I really miss the shop and classes there is nothing like AMOM here in Lincoln . Ann Baker
