Today was my first workshop in my home... I was so worried about it not being that great but I think everyone enjoyed themselves. I planned three Make and Take projects for the workshop. I tried to keep them to the season and also used the Autumn Elegance Kit to help show it off.
The First card we made was a bookmark card using Chocolate chip and Very vanilla cardstock. I used the Stampin Up set Carved and Candlit along with the word set All Year Cheer III to make this into a Halloween card. Stampin Up has a new tool set that several Demos have seemed to call it our Swiss army Knife. It has four different tools, one to uses as a knife, another as a scoring blade, a distressing ring, and last but not least a perforating tool. I used the perforating tool to create an easy tear away bookmark on this card. I also used the Halloween Backgrounds set to add the Bats along the top of the card. I think another favorite tool of mine to use is the Crimper... It was fun to crimp a little of the card.
The second project we did was to make a post it note holder and decorate it with the Autumn Elegance kit. I added a little ribbon to hold it shut... It is always a fun and quick project to create... And a good way to show one of the many uses of the word window punch also.
The third and finial project we made today was another card... We started the night out with everyone getting a chipboard flower and covering it with a color of craft ink. (If you are a demo you will recognize the card from the convention make and takes that we were able to order early this summer). I showed the craft spots off to them for this project. On mine I used pixie pink to color mine in. I think out of all of the In Color Line I love Caribbean Blue... This was a very fun card to make.
All in all tonight was very fun and I think everyone enjoyed themselves.
