My First Savvy Class!

Now that I have one less scrappy commitment I need to keep up, it is time for me to focus on my own business.  Something I probably should've been doing already, but now I'm forced to turn my attention to what really counts in my own world and do the best I can for myself and my little business.

Last Friday night I held my first Savvy Class.  The girls have been telling me for ages I should teach but I really didn't know if I could.  But I bit the bullet and put together a class kit, creating three layouts from it and then writing step by step instructions.

The girls all seemed to really enjoy the class, learning a few new things along the way and 'remembering' some things they hadn't done in a while!  Everyone managed to get the three layouts done in just a few hours, and really...isn't that what its all about?

Getting out of the house, hanging with the girls AND getting three layouts done on a Friday night...a successful night in my books for my lovely customers & friends that joined me and supported me on my very first attempt at teaching!  I really appreciate the support of my local girls and hope I can continue to inspire you in the future.

There are three class kits left and these are now available in the Savvy store here.

Here's a look at the layouts you can create with this class kit.

Her Day - a pretty girly layout with spashes of colour and new techniques including making pendants and inking with punchinella.

A close up of the cluster you will create including inking, rhinestones, fussy cutting, string and more!

Kiss The Boy - a more neutral layout which includes washi tape and two different flowers to handmake.

A close up of the 'concertina flower' and 'spiral flower' made with step by step instructions.

Xmas Fairy - this one doesn't HAVE to be a xmas layout and would suit any photo with the right colourings.  Includes scruching your paper which was VERY funny to see the girls do in the class...they so weren't keen!  Also more spiral flowers on a fussy cut vine and some hand cut leaves.

A close up of the spiral flowers with rhinestone centres, and the washi tape folded 'ribbon style'.

Can't wait to plan my next class for next month!  Don't forget to head over and grab a kit if you'd like to create these layouts yourself. 

Thanks for visiting!
