CLASS 6: 100% BOY
Double page layout class by Natalie May
Friday 7.30 – 10.00pm
Saturday 4.00 – 6.30pm
Let’s be honest ... Boys can be difficult .....they smell bad... they’re hairy & they leave the
toilet seat up ... but ... they are a part of our lives and we need to scrap them too!
Using the brand spankin’ NEW Simple Stories Daily Grind Collection, this double page layout
is especially for those dirty boys! Perfect for every age group, 8 to 48, this double page will feature lots of bright colour, embellishments and plenty of photos! We’ll be using simple design elements, learning how to make your pages fl ow

Layout class by Natalie May
Friday 4.00 – 6.30pm
Saturday 11.00 – 1.30pm
Learn how to incorporate Mixed Media Techniques into everyday scrapbooking. This class will explore stamping, masking, maybe a little misting but most importantly ... how to use it all in your own projects, whether it be layouts or otherwise. You’ll create a great unisex page with plenty of options – don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone a little – embrace and learn some new techniques.
Natalie has been teaching this style of class in Australia for nearly 3 years and is her most popular class – you won’t want to miss out!

Class descriptions are outlined in this update... but wait... you need the fine print!
All classes are optional extras, you can choose to do as many as you like - take one, two, take seven, or none at all, it’s completely up to you!
• Classes are $59 each.
• Classes have increased to 2 ½ hours each, this means we have had to change
our usual class times slightly, take note of this, especially the early Saturday morning!
• Classes are run in classrooms adjacent to the main cropping room, so it’s easy to
come and go from the crop room to the classroom as you please!
• To confirm your place in a class, please reply email to Lucy (
with your name, the class names you want and the time options you’d like to enrol in.
• Lucy will collate and answer your requests for classes via email, confirming classes
you have been placed into and your total balance owed.
• Payments for classes need to be made directly to Lucy at AE retreats, she will
confirm bank details in the confirmation email.
• Final payments of package and classes are due by March 14th 2014.
But you can pay smaller amounts between now and then to make it easier if you like!


  1. Wish I could be there Nat, these classes look like awesome fun and I looooovve Heidi Swapp and have lots of stuff after her visit to our country.

  2. Your classes sound amazing, and yes I do find boy layouts harder to do.. and bring on January 17.. trusting you are hanging in there and doing as well as you can be!! xx

  3. I will be doing both classes. I am so looking forward to AE. Can't wait to meet you. I hope you enjoy AE as much as we have. Love your blog. Jonnece
