Workshop pics #2 :o)

The guest only made the 6 x 6 scrapbook page and then I showed that even though they don't scrap in 6 x 6 how to progressive scrapbook...from 6 x 6 to 8 1/2 x 11 to 12 x 12!

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip. Rose Red, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and Whisper White
Ink: N/A
Accessories: Circle Scallop punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, 3/4 circle punch, small oval punch, large over punch

The last card was another rendition of the butterfly card I had done for SCS VSN this month. Because I had used some retired colors I had to do a change up!

Workshop samples from yesterday

This first set is what I gave as a special booking gift to the hostess...this really cute desk caddy! She adored it! (There are still ONE more EXTRA SPECIAL gift to the hostess that books workshop #3!)



Stamps - N/A
Cardstock - Cameo Coral, Raspberry Tart DPS
Inks: N/A
Accessories: Punch, silver eyelets, Purely Pomegranate ribbon

This card is a dual slider card. I had taken a slider card to show her at our "play" day last month and she so wanted to make it at her workshop so I prepped it all and they stamped and assembled. They were in such awe! My mom booked a workshop for next month and they want to do a Christmas one with embossing...I told them it would reduce the number of projects because of the complexity with the embossing...and they were all game for that! Maybe we will make a bookmark or some small instead of only two...we shall see! ;o)



Stamps - Embrace Life
Cardstock - Bermuda Blue, Almost Artichoke, Pretty in Pink
Inks:
Bermuda Blue, Almost Artichoke, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Oval Scallop punch, large oval punch, 1 3/8 square punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, round tab punch, corner rounder punch, Pretty in Pink ribbon, plastic bag strip, Sticky Strip

Saturday Workshop

I am so excited about Saturday! It has been close to a year since I have done a workshop with the state of the economy so this is exciting. I believe there will even be a newby among the group.

We are making a slider card with a flower set, the butterfly card that is posted under the VSN post and a punches scrapbook page (6x6 and I will show a progression page using my sample). I am taking the Big Shot so the girls can make their own butterflies...once they use it, they will buy it (kinda like if you build it, they will come).

I will be making a special gift for the hostess as that was part of a promotion I am doing to encourage bookings! First THREE bookings get a SPECIAL gift from me and this is the first! Wanna be #2 or #3??? Call or email me today! :)

Technique Corner – Faux Linen
You can get this unique look by scratching the surface of glossy cardstock.

1. Stamp a background image on glossy cardstock. Ensure it is dry before the next step.
2. Use a light grade sandpaper or sanding block and make vertical movements up and down over the entire piece of cardstock.
3. Now sand horizontally; continue sanding until all the glossy is removed.
4. Apply a light color of ink over the top with a sponge brayer or regular sponge. 5. Lighten the color more by sanding over once again vertically.
6. Now you can finish your card! NOTE: You can stamp an image on this piece, add layers, etc. Make it your own!

Where has summer gone?

I look outside this morning and notice that the corn is tassling and the glads are blooming. Where has the summer gone? It seems like only yesterday the snow disappeared and here we are already half way through August!

The summer has been filled with lots of different things and workshops was NOT one of them! LOL I know that times have been hard for all. BUT I have a workshop booked for a week from Saturday! Woohoo! It has been SO long that I will have to work on my presentation skills! hehe

We are making a slider card, the butterfly card below (from VSN) and a 6x6 scrapbook page. Will be working on cutting this weekend. If you want to join give me a hollar and I can set you up with the address where we will be!

I am stoked with the new mini and hoping this will spring board some addition workshops! I ordered a couple of the Build-A-Bear things and will be placing another order for some jewlery this weekend.

I so can not wait until November when I will be doing a Jeweley for a Year in a Day Stamp Camp! Each participant will pre-order a charm and necklace then we will make 12 inserts, one for each month. Cost will depend on the charm/necklace the participant orders + $5 for supplies. Wanna join? Give me a hollar! :)

August Card Club


Here is the August Card Club card. If you would like to purchase the kit please print the order form to the left, mail to the address on the bottom with check or money order!

Have a blessed SONday!

To my dad .... who's b-day is Tuesday :)

The moment you died, our hearts split in two.
One side filled with memories, the other died with you.

Remembering is easy we do it every day.
Missing you is heartache that never goes away.

Life has gone on without you, but it will never be the same.
I saw this and thought it would be perfect for dad and his birthday.

My sister found this poem and sent it to me. It really expresses our love for him and how much we miss him...we love you daddy!
