I'll give you a quick rundown of the products I used - I say I because I was the only one to do the 'boy' page, everyone else did the 'girl' version, which is posted on her blog, Creative Delight.
The base is a Bazzil - not sure of the colour that I ran a white Versacolor pad over. The white layer is SU Whisper White that has been torn and the edges inked with Versacolor Green Tea. The patterned paper is Basic Grey Phoebe - Pier 39 with the edges inked with Versacolor Lapislazuli. The photo is matted on SU Whisper White and Bashful Blue. I distressed the edges of the BB mat with a bone folder and then inked them with the Green Tea ink. The chipboard 'flourish' was painted in Jo-Sonja White acrylic paint and when dry I ran over it with the Green Tea & Lapislauzli inks and attached it to the page with SU 2-way glue. The outside of the 'play' element was inked with Green Tea, the inside was covered with BG paper, the edges inked with Versacolor Atlantic and Making Memories rub ons were used to spell out the word play. The whole thing was then covered with Mod-Podge. I then tied on the ribbon & the rik-rak and attached it to the page using SU 2-way glue. The letters spelling Harrison's name are Thickers by American Crafts. These are SO cool. They are self adhesive, but if you just place them lightly on the page, you can move them around for placement before giving them a final push to stick them hard to the page!
I just LOVE this page - I really has me inspired to do some more scrapbooking & it's not like I don't have a truck load of photos to use, LOL. Anna is holding this class again next week, so if you'd like to attend, check out her blog and drop her a email to let her know you're interested!

For this one, I inked the Canvas background in Pretty In Pink and stamped onto PIP cardstock. I then coloured what I call the Hydranga flower from Heartfelt Thanks using PIP and Mellow Moss markers and stamped 3 times without reinking inbetween (yes, there is actually a 3rd flower, it's just a little hard to see!) on Whisper White. I matted this onto a rectange of M/Moss and then wrapped a piece of White Organdy and Pink Gingham ribbon around the image before matting again on W/White. This was then mounted onto the card using dimensionals. I then stamped the Thanks sentiment, also from Heartfelt Thanks, at the bottom using W.White craft ink.
Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks
Ink: Pretty In Pink Classic, W/White Craft, Pretty In Pink and Mellow Moss Markers
Cardstock: W/White, Pretty In Pink, Mellow Moss
Accessories: White Organdy Ribbon, Pink Gingham Ribbon, Dimensionals
This one is almost a direct CASE from Brierrose on SCS. Until we can get full packs of cardstock in all colours, I'm restricted in colour choices for workshop projects, especially when there are lot of people expected (17 + me). I liked this one because W/White & R/Red are colours we can get in full packs!!
In this version, I added some paper piercing in the top LH and bottom RH corners on the W/White layer and I've used the Heartfelt sentiment from the Heartfelt Thanks set to change it up a bit. The Heartfelt Thanks set has become one of my favourites, especially for workshops. You can get so many different look from just this one set, which is pretty cool considering it's actually a flower set!
Anyway, I coloured the flower using Real Red and Old Olive markers. For the centre of the flower, I used the thin end of the R/Red marker and just dotted them in by hand. The Heartfelt sentiment was stamped in R/Red classic. The main image is attached to the card using dimensionals. Too easy!
Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks
Ink: Real Red Classic, Real Red & Old Olive markers
