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!

Oh that looks like a really fun workshop! I wish I had been there too. Love the flower wreath - how beautiful. And your make and takes are adorable. xoxo

Nice pictures...quilter's have had "mystery" classes for ever...the project is broken down to a series of steps with a ta-da..! moment at the end. There is still the variety provided by the color selection.

The little flower box was cute.
