Rusty Pickles Classes and a bonus Making Memories Class

Okay so Wednesday was a very long and tiring day and unforunately I don't have much to show you.

Firstly I want to explain I am not much of a fan of mini albums, I mean, I have enough 12x12 albums filling up the cupboards as it is without adding more to the collection. And apparently Lance is an off the page kind of guy (in more ways than one LOL) so you can imagine how dissapointed I was to find it was all mini albums.

He is an awesome teacher and I highly recommend going to his classes if you teach and enjoy mini albums. He was full of tips and hints for teaching and selling your products. Had great techniques on how to cover things that were going crap during class (he used the word crap alot LOL) which he displayed very well when our kits didn't arrive till 4pm, giving us only an hour to complete.

The album in the back we started at 4pm so its just about completed but missing the title and a few bits inside. He had Rock Star as his title.

The album on the right was also a half completed job since the kits hadn't arrived and they had to quickly make us up kits that morning. So I suppose the bonus was we got to do a half mini album with products to spare and also the other kit to take home when it finally arrived.

We had a bit of spare time to kill while waiting for the kits so we quickly rustled up a half completed layout using the Pop Stars range. The butterfly is pulled up to reveal a photo or jounalling underneath. Not yet on a layout as not found the right photo or the time to finish it but because I have had emails asking where is the work we did here this is all you are getting at the moment ;)

The first class of the morning, not with Lance, was using the Making Memories new I Do range and slice. I am not allowed to show you it as it is for shops to use a class kit, but I think I will be able to show you a snippet of it with the long stemmed bud black chipboard that I now stock but only 6 left, last time I checked.

The poor guy was rushing at the end of class to get to another class but we wanted photos with him and here is proof I did go to the classes a photo of mum and I with Lance. I have no idea why I am in such a stupid pose! The other photo was worse!

So ladies I am sorry to say not much to show, I did however buy lots of products, including most of their chipboard that they had in stock. So get in quick . As I am not sure when they will be restocked again- you will find them under misc in the chipboard section. Also stocked up on some Bo Bunny papers and more Rusty Pickle.

Have a fab long weekend

Hi there sweetie!!!

Like you, Im not a big fan of mini albums. I rarely make one and if I do, I end up not finishing it. LOL

Anyway, despite the fact that you're not much into it, those albums are gorgeous. I can see a lot of techniques applied there.

And with the Butterfly LO, what a brilliant idea, to cover the photo/journaling with an image. It's something new and rarely done

Chat with you in a while. And I have some good news, i got the package already!!! WOOHOOO!!! Totally gorgeous! Thanks for the add-ons sweetie. i'll see what I can do with it.

Need to take pictures now for the LO! Later!
