Edie’s Stampin’ Up Workshop

On the 15th, Edie hosted a terrific workshop and earned tons of free stuff and three items 50% off.  The seven ladies there had a great time.  First, I did some show and tell, showing off a wreath I made from an SU kit in the Occasions mini.  Here’s some pics from while I was making it and the finished product:


Edie’s sister Nancy brought in this card she had made from one of the Sale-A-Bration sets, some SAB DSP and an SAB embossing folder.  Very nice.


The first make and take we did was a darling flower box.  I split the different steps up and didn’t show them the final product until we were ready to put it together.  First we put together the little flower inserts.  I had to make the flowers without the SU punch as it was backordered.  But we made do.

Then I passed out the makings for the boxes.  Totally CASE’d the colors and DSP from Diane Dimich’s sample.  More on that below.

We then put the flower inserts inside the box and everyone loved them. 

Flower Box3

Best thing about it is that it folds flat and fits in a regular card envelope.  A real WOW card for someone to receive.

I found my inspiration from Diane’s post on Splitcoaststampers here.  Her card had a link to her blog here.  She has a fantastic video tutorial on her blog.  Watching it, I learned it well enough to show all the ladies at the workshop.

Our second make and take is from the birthday card I made for Pam.  I used the hexagon hive thinlit and little silk flowers (again, the punch to do what I wanted was back ordered) with pearls.  I cut several of the hexagons out of the bottom right so the sentiment would fit in.  The ladies had fun with the thinlit, making their own cards.

Here’s Jeannie, Nancy and my hostess Edie working away.


Edie took a picture of all of us gathered at her table.


It was a wonderful workshop thanks to Edie and all my great customers!

March Creative Images Meeting

We had a good meeting a couple of weeks ago and almost everyone brought in an exchange card.  After a momentary panic, I found my little list of who made which music themed exchange cards.  I got my pics processed and here we go. Click on any pic for details, then back to return.  I got the first four to put two side by side, then couldn’t get the rest to do it.  Grrrrr!

First is Cheryl’s gift of music, then Ella’s study in black in red.


Genny made this colorful hummingbird and Helen made the musical notes.


Jeannie made this toadally jazzed froggie birthday card.  More fussy cutting!


I made this hexagon hive card with musical DSP.


Pat R. made this birthday card with her new words Cricut cartridge. 


Pat R. captured Elvis in this card.  I saw Elvis in person, long, long ago, far, far away, in his white jumpsuit and cape period.


Therese made this fussy cut cello collage.


Our project by Tange, given by Therese, was a gift bag.  I have no pics of it.  My bad.  Mine got crushed.  Oh, well.

I made the next card from a kit as a thank you for an online order by Genny.  Merci!


Next month’s theme is “English Garden” and Jeannie has the project.  See you then.

That’s it for this month.  Thanks for stopping by.
