G45 "Fairy Dust" Diorama Card Class





Even though it is just days before Christmas, I have been busily working on classes for 2018. Always great to get them done with lots of time for everyone to to view them and plan to take the classes offered at Scrapbook Essentials BC. Great as an Instructor too, to have things planned and ready to go. Then I just have to put together the class kits for you when the class date draws near. The goal is to plan a 'quarter' (three months) of classes at a time, and have the samples ready for you.

You have already seen the classes I have prepared for January and February, and now this is the first March class samples! This will be it for now, as we are waiting for some product to come in for the rest of my March classes.

For the March Graphic 45 class we are using the beautiful "Fairy Dust" paper! That isn't the only exciting thing about this class; we will also be creating two A7 (5 x 7) DIORAMA CARDS!

Here they are!


They will fit beautifully in A7 envelopes to mail. They will, however, be thick which will mean additional postage if you mail them off to someone special,


G45 Fairie Dust -- Diorama Cards

WHEN: Saturday, March 10th
WHERE: Langford Legion Crop
TIME: 9:30 - 12:30
COST:
$35.00 + GST

To register for the class, contact Stacey - sbebc2011@gmail.com or 778-533-4290.

March and Spring is soon upon us! Perfect time of year to create some lovely Spring / Easter / Mother's Day cards. And not just any card, but Diorama Cards! They fit into an A7 (5 x 7) card envelope, but will be thick. There will be a die cutting station set up for you to use as we will have to attach the paper onto the cardstock before we can die cut.
Please have a look at the samples at the Studio in the New Year.
You will be guided with printed instructions to help you create these cards, and there will be HOMEWORK. The homework kits will be ready for you the 1st or 2nd of March.
PLEASE BRING TO CLASS: Homework, paper trimmer, 12 x 12 score pad with scoring tool, bone folder, scissors, double sided adhesive tape, craft mat, liquid glue, and black 3D foam squares or tape. 

AND I forgot to mention on the store post that it might be a good thing to bring your Wink of Stella or Glimmer Pen to class. It was an after thought once everything was posted that it would have been a good thing to use. I had not thought of using it when I made the cards.

So let's have a closer look at the cards.

As you can see in the next photo, that card fits nicely in the envelope.


When out, you can manipulate it to the form it into a Diorama Card.



A little closer look into the inside of the diorama.

Next comes the horizontal version of a Diorama card. This one has two inner layers, which makes a little thicker than the previous diorama with one interior layer. But it still fits into the envelope, but is a little thicker.


Here is the card standing on it's own. You can peek into the inside.

So that is it for these wonderful keepsake diorama cards!


See you in March for this class!

Happy creating everyone!
