More Workshop Pictures!

Christmas Card Workshop

Thank you all for a great time this weekend. I had the joy of sharing 2 days with very creative and wonderful women. I hope they all had as much fun as I did watching them create. From the newest stampers to the seasoned veterans - I was amazed at the desire to learn and run with it. It never ceases to amaze me how fabulous the ideas my group comes up with! I am blessed!

StAmP-a-pAlOoZa Workshop

If you missed last Thursdays stamp night...well, you missed it! We had fun, food and a new face! (Thanks Kim for joining us!) And as you can tell...I forgot my camera. We made the paper bow posted below - a lesson in frustration for some. All I can say is practice, practice, practice...and pray! lol I also demonstrated how to turn a "tree" into a poinsettia flower for a pretty gift bag decoration. And of course we did a card - with a twist. We mixed a gift card holder and a purse -

Isn't it so cool!

Well, I was perusing the stamping ideas out there yesterday and came across this cute card is one of Dawn Griffith's cool tutorials (she cracks me up!). I did mine with a pic of the kids. I can not WAIT to try another one! Enjoy!

p.s. I added a lil' card in the first "valley" to write a note on. This card fits in a standard 51/2 x 41/4 envelope! I used CTMH Cocoa cardstock, ribbon and brads. Bambo brad, Classic White cardstock and Perfect Day paper. (Kids designed by God!)

Fall has fallen...:(

Although the sun is shining in Conneaut Lake, the leaves have all fallen down. I was looking through my camera and realized I had captured some of our fall on "film". I love our yard and view in fall...maybe I'll just blow these up and tape them to my windows - lol!
