Pam’s Workshop

Friday, Pam hosted a workshop for me and we had a rocking good time.  The ladies loved the things I demo’d and the two make and takes were very popular.  Here are pics of what we made or I demo’d, together with links to where to get more information. 

First, I showed the ladies how to make puffy flowers like this.

I got this idea from Corie off of her blog’s Feb. 5, 2010, post here.  These are very easy to make using 10 scalloped circles, clipped in a little bit, stacked on a brad and smooshed.

Then I showed how to assemble a cute little flowerpot.  I won’t post a link here because my next hostess wants to do them as a make and take for Mother’s Day at my next workshop.  Here’s a teaser pic.  Will blog the link after Connie’s workshop.  I gave this finished flower pot to my hostess.

I showed these two lattice cards just as samples of what could be done with the lattice die.  The blue one was done with glue and glitters and the yellow one was done with markers.  Very stained glassy.

Then I got out these cute little bunnies as table decorations, eventually giving them away as door prizes.  They have chocolate treasures inside them.  I CASE’d the idea from Auntie Beaner off Splitcoastampers.  She had made little bunnies to cover the new style of mint patties.  Her bunnies are here.

 Punchy Bunnies

I thought the ladies would like to make a card with this cute little bunny and here is what I came up with.

Last, but not least, the ladies all made this step card.  I got the idea from Julie Davison’s Sept. 18, 2009, post  here.

March Creative Images Meeting

Wow, has it been a month already?  Time flies when you’re feeling poorly, I guess.  I couldn’t make it to the March meeting, but had lots of trusty help getting pictures taken for this blog.  I also managed to turn in my exchange card and challenge project. 

The exchange card theme this month was a “kid card” and the challenge projects were made out of cocktail napkins we’d picked out two months ago.   As always, click on any picture to see it in detail.  So here goes.

Connie’s kid card uses these bright crayons, a Cuttlebug embossing folder and a cute little “box” for the crayons.

Ella made this giant “h” out of what I think is the negative of a chipboard letter laid over some DSP.  Recycling!

Ella's H

I made another little Sweet Treat cup card with jelly bellies and the slide back so you can get them without destroying the card.  Matched the cardstock to the jelly bellies!

Kathy's Balloon

Gale made this card with a family of die cut bears popped up with up stuff.

Gale's Bears

Holly made this little watercolored (?) cutie and her cupcake, which I think is a brad.

This is Jeannie’s cute little giraffe, gold embossed and fussy cut.

This is Pam’s hoppy froggie.  Hey, Pam.  He needs googly eyes!

Lona made this cute little dress card with a template.

Therese went for a slightly older kid card, but a chocoholic teenager is still a kid.  Love the rose brad in her hair!

Rosie used punches and SU’s Top Note die to make this cute little bunny card.

This is Tange’s bright card using a butterfly punch with some bling for its body.  I spy another Top Note!

Tange's Orange butterfly

Next up are the challenge napkin projects, starting with this mermaid Holly made.  She used dew drops for bubbles and added some tiny shells.  The mermaid’s tail looks like it might have aquarium gravel in it.

Jeannie showed her inspiration for her Easter card in purples and greens.   Lovely latticey look.

Challenge Jeannie's

This is my box made with five layers of cut out poinsettias.  I stiffened each layer with lots of Tacky glue that took forever, but eventually dried shiny clear and hard.

Challenge Kathy

Ursula made this hand mirror, using her rose napkin for the back of the mirror.

Linda made this wedding dress with her lacy white napkins.  Linda won our third prize for this gown.

Lona used a wedding napkin for this shiny silver card which took second place.

Therese won first place for this collage made with some grapey vinyard napkins.

Here are our winners (Linda was out of town).  This pic shows the true size of Therese’s collage artwork.  Congratulations to our winners!

Eleanor did the project this month using mini CD cases.  Here are two of her samples or two finished pieces.  They were colored with colored pencils.

Ella used her Peace Within SU set for these two.
