Theresa’s Workshop 6/18/11

Theresa just loves having workshops.  She earns such great hostess bennies and gifts.  LOL  We had eight ladies at Saturday’s workshop and we made fun cards with a retiring set and cool guy cards with The Open Sea set that Jeannie loaned me.  Janice let me have a couple pieces of her Nautical Expedition DSP.  Thanks, Jeannie and Janice! 

First, I made a couple of samples with The Open Sea that I used as drawing prizes. This first one is a center step card I learned how to make on  Frances Byrne did a tutorial here.  This technique uses a base that is 5 1/2” x 11” and you end up with a square card.

I modified the sizes of the center step card to make two cards from one piece of cardstock, 4 1/4” x 11”.  Didn’t seem to make that much difference and the ladies loved making these for either Fathers Day or a guy card.

For our other make and take, everyone got to pick two of the motifs from the retiring Fun and Fast Notes to make two cards, plus a couple of images to take home.  I made these samples.

Here’s a closeup of the last one.  I didn’t use the little Christmas tree.  Too hot to think about Christmas!

From seven other cards, I made this hostess gift for Theresa, a simple little stationery holder.

Here’s the ladies enjoying themselves and a nice pic of Theresa’s “no bake” cake made of multiple layers of a crispy sort of pancake she cooked in a frying pan, layered and frosted with whipped cream.  Yummy.

That’s all for now. Thanks for visiting.  Comments always welcome.

Wow what a great workshop Theresa had. I love the make and takes. The card set that you gave as a prize was just darling. The colors that you did the cards in for the set were really eye catching. I bet the ladies liked being able to choose which one the made too. Wish I could have been there to make a couple also. Miss the ladies, but it is always fun seeing the pics. Thanks for posting.
