May Workshop...

Hi all - Yes it's me again!!!! Workshop time again so everyone knows that I will be on then eh! Have to put on our creations that we made at the monthly workshops, right???
Anyway for this month we were making a 'Suspension Card'. I made a couple of these last year just for fun (why else do we do this you may ask?) and I love them!!!
So that is what we made this time......

You can find a great tutorial for Suspension Cards here on the greatest site EVER! Split Coast Stampers of course... Where I get majority of my inspiration from.
Then for our second card one of the girls wanted to try a card using vellum. So I cased this from a card that was sent to me ages ago by the lovely Kim (check out her blog here) who I finally got the pleasure of meeting at Convention. It is almost exactly the same as the one she sent me only colours and stamp sets are changed. It was such a simple, easy card to make, but so very effective don't you think....

And to finish off we made this cute little teabag holder. I have had a paper template for something similar to this for years but do you think I could find it to make this. So I have just just made the base how I think it should have gone and then decorated it how I liked.
I had a very quiet weekend this time with nearly everyone busy with something or other so I had quite a few away. But we had a great time the couple that could make it and then a couple of them stayed for the arvo since I had no-one else coming... Sooo....... I got out all my scraps and dumped them in the middle of the table (literally!) and we did Punch Art. I had gotten some pictures off Split Coast and we made owls, cows, sheep, reindeer and a hand bag. We had a ball!!!
I will put some photos of our creations on at a later date.....
