May Workshop

The weekend just past was my workshop weekend which saw us all making this beautiful Buckle Card. There is a great tutorial for this on SCS. The layout for this one was cased off my dear upline Karen (about the only thing different is the colour). The second one started from an idea off a sheet on different uses for Stampin' Spots by Trish Myers. This was called a Shadow Technique. Then I just played and played with the card until I liked it. I was very happy with the end result and everyone at the workshop loved the technique.

I especially love things that have many uses and the Shadow Technique card showcased a couple of different items that could be used "outside the square". Eg: Stampin' Spots as background stamps, Slit punch to make a scallop edge, Double rectangle punch to make weaving holes for the ribbon. I also like things like these because these very simple ideas can change a plain nice card into a "wow" card!

And then to finish off the workshop we all made a "Big Clippie" bookmark! They are just the cutest!!!!
