Firstly I hope you all had a fabulous Bank Holiday weekend and enjoyed some of the sunshine we were blessed with...... I know I wasn't expecting it to be quite so lovely so it came as a nice surprise!
So this morning I set aside some time to complete the Layout Class for the Crop on Saturday and now that it's done I can let you all know what you need to bring along to complete it. I have used a 6" x 4 1/2" portrait style photo of the Colosseum in Rome along with Cream Bazzill and papers from the 7Gypsies 'Notting Hill' range. The papers used are Westbourne, Carlton, Kensington and Vale with the LO having a vintage type feel and look to it (it wouldn't suite a child's birthday photo for example). So if you have some vintage style photos to go with these colours then that would be perfect. Apart from your usual toolkit of cutting mat, craft knife, pencil, trimmer, fine tip scissors, DST and Herma, you will need to bring along a Paper Distresser if you have one (if not please bring a sharp craft knife), some 3D foam, a Pokey Tool, a Crop-a-Dile or 3/16th inch hole punch and some co-ordinating ink pads if you want to ink edges etc.
We will also have a card class this month which will be a sliding card - should be fun to do!! You don't need to bring along any special tools for this card class so your usual toolkit will be fine.
Don't forget that you can place orders on the website selecting 'Pick up at Crop' during checkout and this will ensure that no postage costs are added to your order and we will bring it along ready for you on Saturday. As you know we can't bring along everything we have each month and only bring a selection of goodies so if you want to ensure you can pick up exactly what you want then the Pick up at Crop option is perfect. Doors will open at around 9.50am and we will again have some yummy cakes for you to choose from so pack up those bags and we will see you all on Saturday......................
