Christmas Workshop Gifts...

Hi again. My last workshop is also my thank you to the people who have supported me all year so I give out little gifts to everyone.

Last year I made a '
cake' that was a HUGE hit with all, so I decided that I had enough newbies from this year to make it again. This year I have tried to make it look like a fruit cake by starting with some Chocolate Chip cardstock and stamping shapes all over it. I don't think I quite succeeded LOL.

Anyway it was a huge hit once again but I think I may have to look out for something else nest year :)

Ps: Each 'slice' had a little stamp, three lots of ribbon and a small candy cane.

And here is the cake lost amongst the gifts under the little Chrissy tree. I had enough prizes for everyone and each was numbered. Then I placed the matching numbers in a box and whatever number they drew out was their prize!
Like last year, it was a wonderful afternoon and a nice way to finish off for the year :)

November Workshop & Stamp-a-Stack

This weekend just past saw us doing our annual Christmas Stamp-a-Stack - Something that I find all the girls really look forward to all year. It is also my last workshop for the year and therefore I use it as my thank you to all the girls for their wonderful support, encouragement and friendship throughout the year (lets face it - most of us wouldn't be able to do it without a great group of friends/customers) And I really do have a great bunch of girls!!!!

So these are the two cards that they made (6 of each design) and the one that I thought would take the longest, was the shortest one!! The Baja Breeze one was a 'breeze' {giggle} except for all the cutting. (Had to give them something to do) Where as the other one............... does anyone else have trouble with the 'string'???? I know I did! But the girls ended up working it out.

They all did an amazing job including the two newbies - talk about being thrown in the deep end!

Anyway I had a great day! :D

Hi all - here is a card I made, for a good friend of mine, a couple of weeks ago. It is almost entirely cased from here. I even still had some of the same papers but I have used mine in a slightly different comb though. And I put a different embellishment on the front as I have been wanting for a long time to have a go at one of those 'fan fold flowers'.

I absolutely ADORE the colours I have used here - I think they are so pretty. It was a set of DS papers that I was really sad to see go :(

And in the middle of my flower I have used one of the designer flower brads that I received in my convention pressie from my lovely sister-in-law / fellow demonstrator

Girls 'Day' In....

Hi all - two weekends ago five of us got together to make cards for 'Breast Cancer'. Instead of a 'Girl's Night In' we had a 'Girls DAY In' and made approx 150 cards.

We had a wonderful day together and as you can see from the photos, we had a very productive day also.

We are selling what we can to friends and family first then sending any left over down with the money raised.

I got to my sister's at 7am and left at 9pm. One of the girls stayed till 9pm also. And she could have still kept going! I just want to send out a very BIG thank you to the girls who helped. And to the ones who would have loved to come, but couldn't, hopefully I'll be more organised next year..... maybe.. LOL

AND A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO STAMPIN' UP, for donating supplies for it.

It was a huge under-taking but I would love to do it again next year so here's hoping....

Baby Card...

Here is the baby card I made for the lovely, little Lucy :)

A bit late getting it on here as she is a few weeks old now LOL.

I have used a Sizzix die for the template of the pram and paper pieced it. The sentiment in the middle is printed off the computer as I had no baby messages.

Oh how I LOVE step cards!

13th Birthday...DUH!!!

This is a birthday card I made for a friend's boy (teenager now) - Teenage boys are so hard to make cards for! So I cheated and copied the 18th card I made for my nephew's birthday earlier this year. I just changed the colour. But aren't they so effective. I have made the template myself for this one.

A Wedding Card...

And yes! another Tri-Shutter card!..... I really wanted to make one for the wedding we went to as I wanted something very dramatic and very stylish. Mind you when I saw this card here I nearly changed my mind and cased it, so I decided to use the ideas of that card to make this one. I was extremlly pleased with how it turned out and I have heard that the recipients were very pleased with it also. {beaming}
