Cybercrop preparation

As promised here are some preparation tips for the forthcoming cybercrop. If you plan on playing along with each class you might want to gather your supplies together in 12x12 baggies so you get the most from your weekend of crafting. Or you can simply choose to wait until each class is released and gather your bits and pieces then. As for the challenges?...well they wouldn't be challenges if we gave you heads up about those!

Class 1 by Mel
Details to follow but this will be a layout class.

Class 2 by Jane - Photos can be added later to this Mini-Travelling-Hanging-Scrapbook-Library.
Jane uses Simple Stories Documented collection for her project but this is not essential and you can chose your own favourite supplies. What you will need are the following:
  • 4 sheets of the same colour 12x12 card to match your papers 
  • 4 or 5 different sheets of patterned paper (do not have to be whole sheets)
  • 4x6 journalling cards (similar to these available in many Simple Stories ranges)
  • A sheet of 12x12 Flashcards (similar to these available in many Simple Stories ranges or the Bingo card elements would also work) You can also replace these with card and patterned paper/stickers
  • Stickers to match
  • If you have the collection packs from Simple Stories you can also use the transparancy photo overlays in this class (but they are not essential)
Class 3 by Ann - This mini book will hold several 4x6 landscape photos and a number of smaller ones measuring 2x3 (portrait or landscape). The photos are not needed to create the project and can be added later. Ann used the newest Simple Stories Summer Fresh range for her mini book but again you can use any papers. What you will need are the following
  • 5 envelopes C6 size (I used kraft envelopes by any colour will work)
  • 2 sheets of pale coloured 12x12 cardstock
  • 2 sheets of Journalling Card Elements such as these (available in many different simple stories ranges) They need to be landscape and not portrait.
  • MLS mini alphabet stickers to match your papers
  • Complimentary ATDML ribbon
  • Optional to use Stickles for some added sparkle!
Class 4 by Karen Cole

Class 5 by Karen Moss A neat layout class with a free template to download also.
Photo – 7in x 5in landscape of any theme of your choice to match your papers. Other materials needed:
