Edie’s Workshop, 10-11-09

We had a great time yesterday and I even managed to take some pictures at the workshop.  I also have pics of the drawing prizes, two make and takes and some of the samples I showed off.  We got 15 ladies into Edie’s dining room/kitchen!  Besides these two tables, we had 3 ladies set up at breakfast bar off to left of my work area by the sink.  The luminarias on the tables were door prizes.  Click on any picture for details.

Set up

Here’s my work area in the foreground and ladies cranking up for a good time.

Ginny with an “i” is gonna kill me for this one!

Ginny, et al

Maybe she’ll like this one better!

Me & Ginny

Here’s Linda and Ursula with Holly, my “staff” behind them.  Couldn’t have done yesterday without Holly’s help!  We had some new stampers mixed in and she helped them a lot.

Linda & Ursula

This was our first make and take using Scenic Seasons.  The look is completely different from the Brilliant Blue moonscape I did in my last post.  Sponged with Autumn colors, stamped image with black Staz-on, punched corners with Ticket Punch and did the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes punched out with Word Window and layered on the Modern Label.  Mask was done with a post-it note.

Second make and take was done with Serene Snowflakes, greeting from Heard from the Heart, Christmas Cocoa Specialty flocked designer paper, and Organza ribbon.  We dotted the centers of the snowflakes with 2-way glue and added Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  This is one of my early samples.  Our final card had a slightly wider band of DSP and used another snowflake out of the set, as well.  Very pretty, yet simple.

Serene Snowflakes 5

Here’s a sample I made with the triple-threat ornament.  Used the new ornament die from Movers and Shapers on Real Red CS, stamped the ornament from Delightful Decorations with Real Red ink, then punched it out with the Ornament punch to adhere to inside of card behind the window.  Used Christmas Cocoa DSP again, organza ribbon again and the greeting from Grateful Greetings on the wide oval punch.

Delightful Decos 2

Here’s another sample from Serene Snowflakes using Bermuda Bay CS and ink, Soft Suede CS and ink, Whisper White CS and Taken with Teal CS.  Finished off with Bermuda Bay ribbon.  Did the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes punched out with Word Window and layered on the Modern Label.  That combo is getting a workout.

Serene Snowflakes 2

Here’s a sample from Autumn Days.  Saw  wreath like this on Splitcoast here and punched it up.  I had a pheasant already fussy cut out, so stuck him in the middle!  And there’s that combo, again!

Here’s a cute little Dracula treat box I made for a drawing prize. Angie Juda’s video on how to make these is here.

Dracula Box 

I gave Edie her choice of a hostess gift.  Dracula or this cute little note pad holder.  She picked one of these, with Lavender colors!  Dawn Griffin’s Post-It Note & Pen Holder, June 17, 2009, is here.Note pad

Here’s one of the luminarias I made.  I also made them with the new Haunted Hill wheel, but forgot to take pictures.  This is from last year’s Haunting wheel.

Haunted Lantern 2

And last, but not least, here’s the co-hostess from yesterday’s workshop, Miss Princess.  She’s a Sheltie that Edie keeps clipped in the summer (which just will not go away!).  She worked the crowd like a pro and was perfectly behaved.  Snacks right where she could sniff or grab, but she left them alone.  Good Princess!


Thanks for dropping by.  Comments are always welcome!

Looks like you had a fabulous workshop! Love the photo of you :) I just love how you do the backgrounds with the moon. Your Christmas cards are lovely, bet the ladies really enjoyed them. I so need that Modern Label punch! That dracula treat box is just darling. Might have to try making one of those notebooks myself.

What a fun workshop. That darling dog sounds like another angel baby, working the crowd like she did. I love the Christmas cards with the DP and that beautiful organza ribbon. Your designs are always simple enough for the newbies, and yet elegant enough to please everyone. I am lucky enough to be the owner of one of your darling luminaries. My grandkids love it as much as me. They have to turn it on every time they come over.
I really enjoyed seeing the pics of the tables set up and the guests, not to mention the great one of you. Now you know you will have to do this everytime for us loyal blog followers. hehe

Okay, I am officially sorry I missed that one! Glad Holly could go with you.
Gotta make the wreath for sure, I know that will be my Thanksgiving card this year.
The sunset just sets off the trees beautifully!
