Swan Lake Workshop

Hi Everyone!!  Hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving!!

Here are some great layouts to inspire you for any photos you may have taken!!

Hostess club layout using bulk paper and a PML card!! The grey squares were stamped and everything white or grey was sponges with whisper!!  I love this quick and simple layout!!

This second layout was inspired by the amazing Lynn Como... I love this layout and love this fabulous blue paper!!  The fun hearts and family just pop on the blue paper!!

The third layout was inspired by the talented Michelle Snyder!  this was a simple yet lovely layout and it uses zip strips!  love it!!

This has to be one of my favorite layouts... was sad the that back of the word paper is the beautiful blue paper... but loved how amazing the sponged leaves go on this page.  Special thanks to Charlene Weiss-Colgan.  Here is another layout with the hello card and we stamped an additional greeting on it!!

And because we had more paper and more time, we added another lovely layout inspired by Julie Scott!  It was a quickie and loved using Flower Market Cart cartridge!!

The next Hostess Club workshop will feature the City Sidewalks collection and will be on Tuesday December 13... doors open at 5:00!!  see you there!!

November Shoebox Cards

Hi Everyone!!

So excited to share these amazing cards with you!!  We had a great night!  Thanks to all who came and shared their talents!!  Thank you to those who also brought treats!!  We always need some energy after working on our lovely cards!!

Here's my card... It's the Dizzy Circles (spirograph) (retired) stamp set!  I love these colors together!!  Barn Red (retired) and Juniper.  We sponged the edges with a little bit of Juniper to soften the hard edges.  

Next up is Anita with a lovely Autumn card.  She taught us to make a button out of a punch and her secret to making this a stand up card!  The bottom makes a teepee like stand.  Such pretty paper and a lovely card.

Julie loves a good Turkey!! We had lots of different colors to choose from and we colored our turkeys and made a sweet little Happy Thanksgiving card!

Kathy shared a card making kit that a friend had given her and so we each got to choose any card and make it up!  Fun and quick and easy!  (love this brightly colored Argyle card!!)

Lori's lovely card was just fun!  She had done most of the work for us... the images were all impressed and cut out for us as well a the background being smooshed with color.  Just a fun and festive card Lori!!

Melani's creative card took lots of glue dots and lots of safety pins.  What a fun and clever card!  Would work as a baby announcement or a welcome baby card!  Very fun!!

Roxxy's card was a super cute owl and that we had to assemble.  Lots of great touches here... the background was fun and a great color, and the eyes with the mini pearls were really fun!!  and the swirl of branches that the owl is sitting on.  

Shannon's card was take on one of her first cards she made.  We used a watercolor brush and inks to color the leaves and the turkey. I love the effect of the inks as watercolors on this card and how it makes it feel softer!

Hope you enjoyed our creativity!  It was a great night and 
we had lots of great laughs and giggles along the way!  
Our next class will be Tuesday December 6th.

And our Christmas party will be Tuesday December 20th at 7:00 pm at my house.  Bring a hand made gift as well as a treat to share and we will also exchange our Christmas cards that night.
