It's a wrap!



Can you believe it? The weekend came and went in a flash yet all the preparation and anxiety lasted for months!! Well, for me that is! :D

It was so inspiring to watch Iris create and share her knowledge on not just scrapbooking products, but also art products. It's always wonderful to see what great things can be done with just a little few. And not forgetting all the big smiles on lots of faces - like this lot!




As with every class, the work table is always neat and clean at the start.


Then as the class progressed, so did the clutter and the frantic searching of bits and bobs :)


Like when Jackie searched for her layout, not knowing Hilda had it in her hands all the while, thinking it was hers! She had a lot of apologising to do ;)


Throughout both lessons, there were lots of *snip, snip*, blowing heat guns, stamping, inking, fraying, curling, brushing, sticking, varnishing, painting (with mediums) - and what else did I miss? *phew*!! There were TONS of techniques going around in every direction!!







I hope all of you ladies who attended had a truly great time and left with more inspiration and ideas to scrap (eventhough by Day 2, most of you ran out of steam from all the laughter on Day 1!). Thanks to all those who have generously donated food to keep everyone going (special mention goes to Nadiah for sharing with us those yummmmmy brownies!!) and the 'teh-tariks' without which most of us could barely function without :)

But most of all, a BIG 'Thank You' from the bottom of our hearts goes out to Iris for coming over to teach and share with us while painfully being separated from her two beautiful daughters, Nicole and Cheska. Thank you, Iris for being such an inspiration and sharing your work with us :) Your love for creating has touched many of us and we hope to see you back here again some day :) xx

Come scrap with Iris Babao Uy

The time has come and I know many of you have been anxiously waiting for us. We can't thank you enough for being ever so patient!!

The idea of inviting Iris came to us about six months ago and seeing it all slowly come together gets us all excited everytime! Hailing from the Philippines, Iris is one of several designers from this region whose creations never fail to grace popular scrapbooking magazines such as Memory Makers, Creating Keepsakes and Scrapbook Trends, among many others. Iris is also a designer for manufacturers such as Prima, Websters Pages and October Afternoon and she makes it seem like an effortless task as she juggles her time between taking care of her family and meeting scrapbooking deadlines!

We are well and truly grateful that Iris has created 4 never-seen-before layouts to be taught exclusively at Shabby Chic which incorporates so many amazing techniques that always makes her work so uniquely beautiful. For one weekend only, this would be your ONLY perfect opportunity to learn directly from Iris how she creates such amazing layouts all the time!!



'Blossom' & 'Sweet Days'
Saturday, 21 November 2009
Time : 4 - 8pm
Fee : B$120.00 per person




Blossom - This class will teach students how to use gesso for coverage and for distressing. We will also be working with melted gold wax and tulle. Plus there will be lots of hand-cutting, tearing and wrinkling! If you like the shabby chic style then you will enjoy this class!

Sweet Days - Who said canvas was only beautiful for painting? It is a beautiful base for scrapbook pages too. In this class, you will learn how to prep canvas and use it as a prep for your layout. We will play with paint, gel medium, perfect pearls and you will use gloss varnish.



Students to bring:
Foam glue
Tape glue
Clear dots

'Loved' & 'Journey Called Life'
Sunday, 22 November 2009
Time : 4 - 8pm
Fee : B$120.00 per person




Loved - Have you ever looked at a painting and wondered how the artist created the texture and embossed images? You will try your hand at being an artist in this class. We will work with modeling paste complete with a palette knife! Then we will create beautiful colours on our page with metallic pigment powders.

Journey Called Life - This class will focus on using gel mediums for print transfers and creating textured edges. We will work on both paper and canvas. If you are the artsy type or if you have wanted to try playing with artist mediums then this is the class for you!




Students to bring:
Tape glue
Clear dots
Scissors
Misters (if any)
