Half Full Glass - Workshop - September 9, 2017

The Half Full Stamp Set has so much meaning to me.   Not just because it is about wine, but because in was inspired by my upline Stampin' Up! Demonstrator:   Linda Bauwin.   She was a Million Dollar Achiever in 2016 and as part of her rewards, she was able to inspire a stamp set and have it featured in the Holiday Catalog.    It is on page 42 in the 2017 Holiday Catalog and acknowledges her achievement.    Linda works hards and does a wonderful job inspiring stampers like me.    Congratulations Linda on a job well done!

Pocket Phrases - Workshop July 22, 2017

This group of cards used both stamp sets:  Floral Phrases and Colorful Seasons.   Plus we used the In-Color Bitty Bows, Glitter Enamel Dots, Ribbon and the NEW round punch called STARBURST (143717 $18).   I will definitely be using the Starburst punch a bunch because it also surrounds circle punches.     The workshop members chose from 2 out of 4 colors and made smaller individual envelopes (4"x4 1/2") for each.   The Fresh Florals Suite Designer Series Paper contains 40 sheets of color (144131 $22).   Making envelopes from Stampin's Up!'s Designer Series Paper is so easy on the Envelope Punch Board (133774 $20); the paper weight is perfect.

Life In a Box - Workshop May 20, 2017

Usually my workshops focus on making a card using a stamping technique.  But I attended a Stampin' Up! demonstrators workshop a few months ago and figured out how to make framed display boxes.   I saw all kinds of possibilities;  flowers, butterflies, seasonal messages like Christmas, Fourth of July, etc.   But this one is a message of perseverance and finding  joy in our lives.   

The method of making the framed box and the stand supporting it from behind, is difficult to describe on a blog.  I did provide my workshop attendees with detailed directions and I can do so for you if you will email me or reply on a blog comment.   The fee for the instructions are $5 and includes postage.   This is a challenging paper craft project but worth the effort.   I made one of these with my 14 year old niece over the weekend and did turned out lovely.

...Because You're Awesome - Workshop May 20, 2017

To make this card, I grabbed a little bit for three Stampin' Up! Stamp Sets:  Gorgeous Grunge, Petite Petals and Botanticals For You (from 2017 Sale-a-Bration).     This project is to show how well the Stampin' Up! sets go together.   They are designed to work with each other and enhance the background or message of a card you are designing.   

My workshop class received Crumb Cake envelopes to go with the card.   But sadly, and I don't know why, Stampin' Up! did not continue the Crumb Cake envelopes in the new 2017-2018 Catalog. 

...Because You're Awesome
