Workshop projects & a bit of fun

Here are my samples of the cards/ projects we made at my card workshops last weekend.

Special thanks to Heike for allowing me to use the template of the cute little hand bag for the class.

The first two cards were made using cardstock, inks & buttons from the Bold Brights colour family & the "Wild about You" stamp set.

Next up some simple Christmas cards using cardstock & inks from the Earth Elements colour family, Very Vanilla & Whisper White, the very funky "spiral punch" & "Wishing You" stamp set both available for a limited time in the Spring mini catalogue. The background was stamped in Versamark ink using the gorgeous & very versatile "French Script" stamp.

Lastly there's the cute little bag decorated using the "Bold Butterfly" & "Tagger's Dozen" stamp sets, "tag punch" & inks from the Bold Brights range.

A very easy to make, pretty friendship card using the "Reason to Smile" stamp set which is one of the stamp sets exclusively available to qualifying hostesses rounds out the collection. The scalloped edge on the Cool Carribean cardstock was created by using the "slit punch" & a single hole punch. I also really love the "Print Pattern" background stamp that I've used with So Saffron ink from the Rich Regals colour family.

I've had some very positive feedback, got some orders & thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone have fun creating their own cards & how proud they were of their finished projects. Thanks to everyone who's helped & supported me so far getting my Stampin' Up! business up & running!

Here are a couple of shots of our girls enjoying a play in the snow. We were actually quite fortunate in the end to get just a short amount of time outside as Mackenzie managed to get quite ill with croup & the wind chill factor up at Perisher Valley was incredible even though it was a bright, gorgeous sunny day.

Our little Mackenzie seems to have a not-so-secret mission from the "Fun Police" as she has managed for 3 school holidays in a row to come down with croup, poor little thing spent most of the time violently coughing & trying to catch up on lost sleep from her persistent coughing.

We rugged her up & made a snowman with her, she tasted a bit of snow & then was straight back in the car thoroughly exhausted from less than 15mins of activity, not exactly the trip we planned on but it was great to get away & even better that she's fully recovered just over a week on.
