So you should have arrived here via Frank's blog. My name is Trina and I've been addicted to this crazy hobby of ours... scrapbooking for many years now.
I love to use lots of patterned papers, beautiful flowers, texture paste, stencils and well, let's be honest, anything pretty!
Recently I've been on a cruise from Sydney, Australia to Noumea in the South Pacific where I taught several scrapbook classes with Franks beautiful products. Here's a wee look at a couple of items that I taught.....
First a few simple tags....
After creating the tags, we used one of them as the base for a single layout. Tales of You and Me was perfect for these projects.
The tag opened up meaning you can put a photo inside, on the front of the tag, or even down in the right hand corner.
As a bonus, I also threw in some extra teeny tags instructions that could be used as gift cards for some presents...
Alongside this, I also created a 'from scratch' mini album using Franks French Riviera Collection and some packaging for the front. Take a look.....
I adored the little charms I found which matched our cruise perfectly.
Making this album on the cruise meant all the attendees could go home, print their photos and put them straight in. And the sea side theme of Franks collection worked perfectly for this!
With plenty of pockets, and hidden journaling spots and fun interactive pages to add extra photos/journaling and/or ephemera.
There were 20 pages plus covers in this class so everyone was kept very busy! But everyone also got most if not all of their pages done. WTG ladies!!!
So if you'd like to be in for a chance to win, please leave me a message below and come back to check the winner in a few days. I'll be giving away some of Franks beautiful products so you can have a play yourself.
Please don't forget to hop along to the next person's blog to see what they've been creating with Franks lovely collections. You'll be heading off to Lisa Novogrodski next. Just click on her name and it should take you right there.
Have a fabulous day all. Happy scrapping!
