Craft Queen Vintage Bliss and Brisbane Scrapbook Expo

Hi Ladies,

I have a Craft Queen LO and also class information on the Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo being held on 9-11 June to share with you today.

Simple Stories Vintage Bliss
I created this LO using the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6x6" paper pad and some gorgeous product from Craft Queen.  I have used one of the new Prima masks on my background which I think will become one of my new favs as I love the soft lacy feel to it.. perfect for those girly pages.  Nicole has a fabulous range of washi tapes available and I have used the turquoise chevron and pink and green floral as they went so well with the Vintage Bliss papers.  Adore the cute wooden doilies... I left them natural and highlighted them with a little gesso.

  5. Another gorgeous layout Cathy, love all the layers and the outer edge looks fabulous roughed up.. and when you say intermediate to advanced class what does that mean?
