Pam’s Workshop 3/24/12

Pam hosted a workshop for me before the Sale-A-Bration mini-catalog expires the end of this month.  We started with ten ladies, including Pam, and silly me forgot to get out my camera.  Oh, well.  I showed the ladies how to make a diorama card (incorrectly referred to it as a “panorama card” at the workshop) with these as my samples:

Panorama card

The card on the left has an image from Apothecary Art mounted on die cut Framelits and inside is punched with the curly label punch and stamped with the frame and greeting from Elementary Elegance.  I learned how to make this from a March 10, 2012, video tutorial by Diana Gibbs on page 3 of her blog, here.  Diana received a card using this technique from Ann Clemmer at Founder’s Circle last year and it is easier than it looks.

Dawn Griffith has a terrific blog (no wonder she is Stampin’ Up’s top demonstrator!) with hundreds of video tutorials here.  The first four videos at that link are the bunnies and the basket (our first make and take) (Dawn’s picture) . . .


the bears (show and tell of bears I made) . . .

Baby & Mama bear

and her thank you notes (our second make and take) . . .

Fresh Vintage

I adjusted mine to be a bit larger than the 3 x 3 cards Dawn made so they would fit in a regular card envelope.  I cut the back square to be 4 1/4 by 4 1/4”, the DSP to be 4 x 8” and the Very Vanilla to be 3 7/8 by 8”.  I scored them at 2” on one end and folded over the other end to match.  The “Hello” on the outside is from Elementary Elegance and the pretty image inside is from Fresh Vintage.  The DSP is Everyday Enchantment.

For our last make and take, I sorta kinda CASE’d an idea from Jan Tinklinberg’s March 17, 2012, blog entry here.  She called it Monochromatic (Almost) Fresh Vintage.  I liked the look, so I changed it a bit and came up with this EQP card, easy, quick and painless.  This also uses the Everyday Enchantment DSP.

Fresh Vintage 2

I think that’s it for what I demonstrated, showed off or we made yesterday.  Thanks, Pam, for a great afternoon!

Thanks for stopping by. Comments always welcome.
