May Layout Workshop - Scrap Your Stash!

When I suggested a Scrap Your Stash workshop, I had someone ask me "well, what if someone doesn't have any extra paper lying around?" If you're a papercrafter, you should either be rolling your eyes or rolling on the floor laughing. We all have extra paper lying around, paper we love that's sitting collecting dust. Well, for May, it's time to shake the dust off and put that paper to use! We're going to make two 2-page layouts using ANY paper pack in your collection. And it doesn't matter the theme - the B&T paper I'll be providing goes with ALL paper packs (I dare you to find one it doesn't.)

May's workshop uses the wood grain B&T paper from Timberline - it's a beautiful way to add texture to any layout, no matter the paper (I used the retired Footloose and Stella paper packs - what will you use?) Along with two sheets of B&T paper, you'll receive 4 layout bases, 1 pack Triangle Durables Studs, 1 pack Mini-Medley Wooden Accents and six Flip Flaps, plus a cutting guide and assembly instructions. 

Why Flip Flaps? Because you can triple the amount of pictures on any page! Both layouts look like they only hold 4 photos, but with the magic of Flip Flaps, you can go from 4 photos to 8, 12 or 16 photos!!

The embellishments are very neutral and can also work with any paper pack. In addition, we'll be using the True to Life stamp set - one of the most versatile stamp sets I've ever had. I would recommend getting one for yourself because there's no limit to the layouts, cards and gifts this stamp set can decorate. It's included in both the local and shipped options (those of you doing this workshop at home will have to do your own stamping - you can get this stamp set or use one of your own).
