Wow, another ScrapFest is over and I wanted to share the classes I offered.
It's A Guy Thing was a really fun LO to make.  I incorporated aluminum tape that is so popular these days as the base for my side bar and title on the left hand page.  I used the Cricut Artiste to make a border with the gears 4" tall and 9" long.  I tacked it to another piece of card stock that measured 4" x 9" and covered it with 3 strips of the aluminum tape.  I added several different shaped gears in a variety of the Later Sk8r paper to create a fast and fun LO.  I also added real aluminum washers from Lowes to add authenticity. 

My next LO Class, I used Chantilly paper and fabric.  some of my pictures are loading side ways for some reason. So, you will have to turn your heads or use your imaginations.
 The Left Page:
 The Right Page:
 Close up of the Carousell and the pearl accents:
 The doily and flowers were cut using the Artiste cartridge.  The leaves are fabric and the button in the middle is from the Chantilly Assortmant.  I love the new Small Sparkles Clear Flourishes.
 Another doily and flower accent cut with the Artiste, pop doted, fouirished and fabric leaves added.

 Again, sorry for the side ways photo, I can't seem to fix it.  I sewed a strip of fabric 1" x 14" to create a ruffle that was glued down using liquid glass.  I then added the zip strip paper in the green and blue pattern and lastly the Zipper Lace with liquid glass again.

 My third LO class, I used For Always paper and again the Artiste cartridge to creat this fun Artisian style LO.  I stamped a background using the stamp set Distressed Backgounds with black ink.

Here is the Left hand page with layered hotair balloon, Eifel Tower, and layered dress form.  I added our black tulle for a skirt by sewing and gathering it.  I attached it with liquid glass and added a fabric belt and paper rolled red flower.

The title is layered with tulle and flower for accents.
This is the right page with clock and film strip and a touch of red in the rolled flower.
