Last Sunday, while Denise was here visiting me, we decided to take a class at my local scrapbook store. The class was to make a tray using the new Graphic 45 - Christmas Emporium Collection. The actual project used vintage photos of people I don't know. I wanted it to be a bit more personal so I decided to print out some photos of my children and use their photos on the tray. I did end up putting one of the vintage photos on it too. I think Denise was going to add personal photos to her tray too when she went home.
The instructor provided everything else we needed. She purchased the trays from Michael's for $10 each. She was pretty stoked to find them at such an inexpensive cost. They are really nice trays and come in black or white.
Since I was adding photos from home I ended up finishing my tray at home Sunday night. After I finished decorating it I used some Stickles and some Glossy Accents to highlight a few things. I really had a bit of drama because after I finished the tray I sat it upright to dry. I didn't think about the fact that the glossy accents would end up running down the project. Luckily, I caught it in time and could fix the things I messed up. I made sure to lay it flat to dry after that. I was sick at first when I saw all the dripping Glossy Accents. I guess it really is true that there are no accidents in scrapping just more opportunities to be creative!! LOL
I think this completed tray would be a perfect gift to give to my Mother and Dad for Christmas but I am loving it so much that I'm not sure I can part with it! LOL
We really had a good time at the class. I'm glad I thought to check and see what classes were being offered while Denise was here visiting me.
Okay, enough for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
