I thought i`d add a workshop

It`s a very simple one but the technique of adding pages is

a very useful one


So for this workshop I have used the following

Lavender & Lace Workshop


Take the 8 x 8″ card blank & 2 sheets of kunzite card. Trim of 4 inches off the

bottom of the 2 sheets of card in a portrait position.



Score 3/4 inch down the right hand edge of the card making sure the card is in the correct

position and the bottom edge is the edge that has just been cut away – this will ensure the

wider edge has been scored. Place a strip of double sided tape behind the tab & place the scored edge

right on the base card centre crease.  Once the card is in place remove the tape & stick the card down.



Repeat this process on the 2nd piece of card to form the 2nd page of the card. Add the tab to the back

of the card so the tab will be covered with another square piece of card – this is optional but adds

a lovely feel to the project matching and covering the tabs. Cut the panel to side to make sure the

card is covered correctly as it will give a seamless feel to the project.



Once the 2 pieces of card are in place the centre of the card will look like this.

A lovely flush feel & the tabs are underneath.



Select different backing papers from the Jane Shasky cd to match the theme of the card.

Here a frame with acetate & pressed flowers behind have been added to make a feature

piece to the project. An edging of lilac promarker has been used around the backing papers.




Add different images which have been printed onto photo paper for a lovely sheen.

Build the images throughout the pages to link the colours together.



Here one of the frames has been added towards the back to allow a sentiment and your own words

to be hand written if you so wish.



More backing papers & the decoupaged image has been added to the front page.



 To add detail to the piece & follow the lace theme from the image a lace hanky has been folded in half

& a ribbon added to gathered the hanky up. The ribbon used has also been added as a bow in the top left hand

corner to bring the eye to the colours in the image.



A close up of the hanky. Before the hanky was gathered I stamped the lavender image using Tim Holtz dusty concord

 & peeled paint distress ink.


I hope you have enjoyed this project – it`s great for making small scrapbooks

and they are great for special occasions.
