I did my first workshop yesterday in absolutely ages. The hostess wanted to take advantage of the Sale-a-bration promotion and the Summer mini before both finish at the end of this month. Most of the people there were experienced stampers which certainly helps to make things run smoothly. We did 2 'make and takes'. The first was these cards which use the Happy Moments stamp set from the sale-a-bration catalogue. We practiced our watercolouring using the SU! pastels, I havent had these out in a long time. I think we had all forgotten how easy and effective they for adding a bit of colour!
THe second was this little Chocolate Purse. I say chocolate because that is what we put inside! I can take no credit for this design. It all comes from my upline Cathy Clark. I was going to change the colours from the one she gave to me, but decided it was just too pretty to change! All I did was give the fold over front flap an eyelet border edge.
I had a great time yesterday and hope everyone else did too. The hostess earned lots of freebies: a sale-a-bration set, a level 1 hostess set and $40 to spend of SU! products!
So if you want the chance to learn something new about stamping, get together with your mates and earn some free Stampin' Up! products just drop me a line!
