Recent Workshop

When creating a workshop I tried to get feedback from crafters to find out what they would be interested in learning. People couldn't tell me what they wanted. So I created a workshop that was not for the newbie and the results were fantastic!

In creating this design I thought of earth, air, sun, and water. Each page was created using the Dotty for You paper packet.

This is Sara and she is proudly showcasing her work. This is the first side we worked on. She added a cloud and it looks great!

The second side of this accordian album was all about the color ready products and the white core card stock feature. We applied ink to butterflies and ribbon  by using a sponge. The participants learned how versatile Close to My Heart products are and the great feature of the white core cardstock. They balled up cardstock and sanded it down. The white core was an added texture and feature to the page.

Lynne is Sara's mother and is also an advid crafter. Check out how different and wonderful Lynne's album looks.

Regardless of age or experience this is a wonderful scrapbooking project. Here's a few crafters at work.

I have two favorite features the first, 3D accents such as the hand stamped airplane and banner.

And last but not least is the tree. The tree was hand stamped, then the tree top was stamped again on a separate cardstock. Both was cut and then layered. The tire is a movable embellishment that can freely swing. 

I hope you can swing on by on August 18th at my Open House
