April 2009 Worskhop...

Hi all - hope everything is going well for you all - Hope you all had a wonderful Easter even though it is now two weeks past!!! Time flies faster as one gets older LOL (or busier!)

For our workshop creations this month, I firstly wanted to Mother's Day cards plus I wanted to use some of the lovely new Designer Series papers available in the new catalogue. And boy have we been spoilt this time. They are all so beautiful! It was so hard to choose!!! I have chosen the Raspberry Tart papers 'cause for one it is very 'pretty' colours and also I felt that the  new 'Three Little Words' stamp set went really well with it.

All three have been made based around the Raspberry Tart DS papers.

For our first card we have made a pocket card (instructions
here) which the girls found to their delight, very easy to make. We have also used the 'Mother's Day' stamp out of the 'Occasional Greetings' set. 

For next card we have made a simple layout using layers and for a bit of added interest we have clear embossed the flower and sentiment and also used the rock 'n' roll technique. This card and the next item both also use, for a little extra *bling*, the new clear Rhinestone brads which I really LOVE and find so much more versatile.

And for our novelty item, I have cased this Post-It note holder idea from
Jean who sent me one in the post a little while back as a gift. Such a simple but very clever idea and my girls loved it. Thank you Jean for the inspiration. :) It has a hair-band that holds it closed which you really can't see in these pictures.
