It's been quite a while, a few years in fact, since I've taught a class BUT today I am excited to share that I will be teaching this shabby style memory album next month - perfect to keep as a treasured mini album or as a gift for someone close to your heart.
Starting out with a plain kraft style blank box we will be exploring the world of mixed media incorporating lots of fun technique in a shabby chic style. Hidden inside is a sweet little concertina mini album to house some special memories.
Come and spend the morning with me then after lunch dive in to a fun and freestyle mixed media layout class with the fabulous Lisa Oxley! Can't wait to see you!
Details for my class are as follows:

This time I have used Sn@p! Pocket Pages Design 7, which has a long 6x12 pocket on one side. I think I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that I really enjoy the larger pockets since they totally indulge my love for traditional scrapping, yet still have that great pocket page look.
I've used lots of our wedding photos in this one to help tell the story - standing at the alter saying "I do", walking out of the church after the ceremony, the groomsmen, our rings and of course a more formal photo of our wedding party.
I'm really loving how this is turning out. I have our photographs in a professional wedding album which I treasure, but I am really taken with putting these pages together in a less formal way. It also means that the girls will each have their own collection of their parents wedding photos. I may have to do another!
By pure coincidence, Simon and I celebrate our wedding anniversary this month so it's perfectly fitting to be sorting through these memories right now.
I've used the reverse side of Sn@p! Pocket Pages Design 9 - the front and title page can be found in my previous post here, which has a long pocket across the top. I really like this style as it appeals to my traditional scrapbooking side where I can create something freestyle in these large pockets. On this page I've simply added some torn paper layers along with a couple of photographs, added a subtitle and a few small embellishments along with some torn washi tape - not unlike how I would approach a traditional 12x12 layout. The only real difference is the size.
I chose a Simple Stories Design 9 Pocket Page for my base because I wanted to use a large photograph of our hands as a title, adding embellishments either side for some colour and create a sense of focus on my wedding rings. Even with a bit of blur in my photograph it still works really well as a title and begins to tell the story.
I've included a couple of photographs - one of the priest who married us and another of the outside of the church we were married in along with a few details about our big day.
To add a little something extra I've used a variety of coordinating washi tapes from my stash as well as a few scattered stickers, ephemera pieces, enamel dots and sequins. I've also added a little doodling here and there to help finish the whole thing off.
Thanks for dropping in, I have a few more pages to share to follow on from this one over the coming week.
