Beloved - Kinetic Scrapbooking

Double layout with left hand page closed.

I was not able to take this class at the Cardinal Colours Retreat as was a little busy with my 'make and take' sessions.  So I was thrilled to be able to have the kit to work with at home. It took me some time to work through all this class involved, but I am really pleased with the results. The photos are of my parents' wedding in 1957.
Left hand page - the easy bit!

I finished the layout after dark yesterday and so had to wait until today to get a photograph or three!

The kit contains a great deal of stash. The class was designed by Karen Burniston, and uses papers and other products from the Beloved IOD, Creative Imaginations line. There are about (sorry I have lost count as I have cut them up now!) 5 or 6 double sided sheets of 12x12" patterned paper, and one foiled paper. There is a DVD with the class on and two sheets of paper templates. The kit contained clear gems, a pack of epoxy stickers, another of die cut shapes and a sheet of ABC double stickers. In addition to all this there are 4 magnets, 6 pearl beads, 6 jump rings and some gold coloured wire. There was also an Ever Mark CD marker.

Right hand side with page closed.

The double sided layout involves Kinetics (Ancient Greek: κίνησις "kinesis", movement or to move). It is very clever how from paper you can make a page with moving parts. My layout has turned out a little different as I switched the papers round for the left had page (Absolutely nothing whatever to do with the fact that after identifying what each sheet was for, I still cut up the piece set aside for the left page and made it into a butterfly!).

Right hand side with page open looking down on page.

Part way through the process of cutting out all the pieces needed to build the butterflies. All cut by hand - not a Cricut cartridge in sight!

A little cutting of the page protector and the layout can be opened and closed in the album.
