Twitter Crop Class!


Join in with the fun this Thursday 7th April for my first go at a class on Twitter! The idea is to have fun but at the same time {hopefully} get a little bit of inspiration. Class will start at 1pm and I'll be 'tweeting' live with instructions and Twitpics as we go along. You don't need to be signed up to Twitter just to follow along the class although if you want to add your own 'tweets' or messages as you go along you will need to sign up. You can do that super easily here. The Crafty Templates Twitter page is, www.twitter.com/craftytemplates so if you're not signing up just pop that in your favourites and you can read the Tweets from there at any time that suits you.
There's a list of materials you'll need to play along bellow. We'll be making a layout step by step but you can use the ideas/techniques to make a card or other project too. I've used goodies from this months Quirky Kit 'Spring in your Step' and as I'm on an ongoing mission to use up leftovers I've added some leftover alphabet stickers to the mix. You can swap these for any other supplies you have.

Supply list

From the Quirky Kit:
Kesi'art Senteurs Boisees 'Bouleau' patterned paper
Lilly bee Design This and That 'Brooch' patterned paper
Kesi'art Little Dots Aqua Green cardstock
Kraft cardstock
Piece of tulle fabric in grey
1 American Craft Peachy Keen resin rose brad
 Websters Pages mini resin flower
1 piece of black and white houndstooth fabric
1 black and white button
1Webster Pages cream bird flat back resin embellishment
Kesi'art Script Woodgrain mini alphabet stickers

From my leftovers:
Prima 'alphablends' chipboard alphabet stickers, I used enough to make up the first word of my title.
2 black brackets from a pack of American Crafts foam Thickers.
1 round cardstock sticker from an old pack, I used the reverse sticky side so it doesn't matter what's on the front.

Tools:
Boarder punch, I used Fiskars Threading Water but any will work.
Doublesided tape
Corner Rounder Punch, optional.
Sewing machine, this is just for decorative purposes and is totally optional.
Butterfly punch, optional.

If you don't have a Quirky Kit just swap in your own stickers and papers. You'll need 4 different patterned papers or a couple of sheets of doublesided paper. A mix up of large alphabets and small alphabets for your title. Four or five different little embellishments, a round alphabet sticker and a piece of fabric, a long thin piece will work or even a piece of ribbon if you don't have fabric.


Hope you can play along!
