October Workshop

Hi all - well it was that time again! Workshop wonderland and the theme was Christmas! But we didn't get into the Christmas spirit though - thought of that too late LOL - So I have told the girls that next month' workshop is..... PARTY TIME!!! (We will be doing a Christmas Stamp-a-Stack and I have told them that we are dressing up for Christmas - that was met with a few cheers and a few more groans LOL)

Anyway back to this month's workshop - we have made a Free Standing Pop-UP card (tutorial... you guessed it, at
SCS) I have wanted to make a Christmas one of these ever since I saw one late last year, so I finally got to do it YAH! (I think the girls thought so too, YAH that is LOL)
I received one of this type of card recently in a swap, so thank you Jane, as it saved me a lot of time having it to measure off. You can't see them very well, but it has brads on the tree. Some of the girls also put glitter dots as well.

Supplies: Very Vanilla, Ruby Red, Handsome Hunter and Night of Navy cardstock, Season of Joy stamp set and So Swirly jumbo wheel, VersaMark and Handsome Hunter inks, Brads, Night of Navy 1/4 ribbon, Jumbo brad.

We also made this great card that has a slide out insert. (I can say great card 'cause I completely cased it from a swap card by Jean LOL - the only difference is the colours used). Thank you Jean. Isn't this the whole idea of swaps, to get great ideas to use.

Supplies: Wild Wasabi and Bashful Blue cardstock, DS paper from Winter Bright Simply Scrapping pack, Wild Wasabi ink, 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamond glitter, Silver brad, Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon, Horizontal Slot punch.

And then for our novelty item... had the girls working hard today!!! LOL and we still had time for lots and lots of laughter!!! Did I tell you all what a great bunch of girls I've got.......

We have made this cute table decoration. I made one at Karen's last year some time with a flower attached to the lolly stick (that's right... it has a lolly pop inside it) and they have been popping up on a few different blogs again lately. I decided to make mine Christmassy in keeping with the theme of the cards. We have also put little glitter dots over the tree and on the snowflake. Too cute if I do say so myself! Mind you, my tree looks a little small for the 'pot' LOL - but still cute....

Supplies: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and Handsome Hunter cardstock, Season of Joy stamp set, Silver brads, 1 3/8 & 1 1/4 Circle punches, 2-way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamond glitter.
That's all folks, till next time....

And if you would like to purchase the pre-cut kit with *everything you need (did I mention all pre-cut) to make all three of these great Christmas creations, then email me for details and one can be on the way to you! :-))

Looking forward to hearing from you!!
