As some of you may know, I am now an instructor and design team member for my LSS, Dreams and Memories. I have a Scrapbook 101 beginners class coming up on the 31st of this month. For this class we are going to create a 2 page 12x12 layout using a page kit from Karen Foster Design. Page kits are great tools to get a beginner going. They usually have plenty of paper and embellishments in them and since it is all coordinating, it takes the guess work out of it for a newbie. I don't consider myself a pro by any means, but I have been scrapbooking for over 7 years now. I love 3-D embellishments and adding dimension to my layouts. Well, since this is a beginner class, I had to take a few steps back and get "back to basics." For this layout I used the paper and cardstock stickers from the kit and added 1 cardstock photo mat and a brad. Here's the finished product!
