CLASS: Pop-up Layout - For the Record

Here is a brand new layout class project that will debut in The Netherlands at Scrap4Fun's spring weekend retreat.

It is a double-page spread using the For the Record collection, by Echo Park plus Bazzill cardstock.

01 For the Record Closed

I like this collection. It has a vintage feel, but with bright fun colors. The sticker sheets have lots of fun captions and I can see this layout being used for almost any theme. I chose to use family photos from our reunion trip last summer. (Note: With a full sheet of letter stickers, with four different alphabets on the sheet, you'll be able to spell out a title in Dutch, if you prefer.)

This secton of Page 2 is a card that opens. I've made a 3D flower for the front using one of my favorite Eileen Hull dies- Flower Layers #9.

Here is the layout with the card open:

The pop-up bird is a die design that I submitted to Sizzix about a year ago, but by then we were working hard on Pop 'n Cuts, and this lonely bird had no home in the release. This actually happens quite a bit, but it keeps me in good supply of extra pop-up designs in case someone asks for a template class. I styled the pop-up bird to look like the sticker bird by brushing black ink across its back and using black cardstock for the wings.

Here's a look at the whole card area. Plenty of room for extra photos, titles and journaling.

By the way, I should clarify that I am not the instructor for this class. Scrap4Fun will use one of their instructors. One of these days I'm going to make it back to Europe to teach, but until then, I'll just keep sending designs across the pond! 

Check Scrap4Fun's website for information about the weekend, costs, etc. I will be providing Vera with a "What to Bring" list shortly. (Won't require more than general tools plus a mini-stapler and black ink/blending tool) The handout will include instructions for altering a page protector so the card can be opened in an album.

In other news, I am looking forward to being an online student at True Scrap 3, where Gretchen is one of the instructors. She posted some information on her blog today with early-bird registration for alumni.
