Look what my girls made in the Mini Workshop I hosted on Monday! We had a great time – I mean really, how much more perfect can girls night out be when it includes great company & crafting?!
Each workshop I host as a demonstrator, I always create a tutorial / handout for the participants to take home with them after the workshop so that they can recreate the cards again at home. As a little bonus for all you stampers out there, I have included a link to download the PDF tutorials on how to make each card from that workshop! Some of the other cards I have featured in other posts also have a PDF tutorial – if you are interested in one, please comment below or message me & I can email you a PDf copy.
Stampin Up Pinwheel sizzlits with Subtles DSP & stripes embossing folder
This card is super cute, but the pinwheel sizzlits can be a serious problem to put together… that is if you don’t know the trick to assembling them! Check out this video on the easy way to assemble these little guys with ease and no frustration: http://youtu.be/9PCjFyN7-qs
The other WAY COOL technique I taught the group was the “fork bow”. Who knew you could use a fork to produce consistent, easy to make bows!! I found this YouTube tutorial on how to make easy ribbon bows: http://youtu.be/RBza9q1rKRo
Papillion Potpourri Window card

I made a lid using the exact same template, I just cut it down to just underneath where it crosses over – you can adjust accordingly to suit your cards: use all same score line marks, just adjust length to suit lid size (ie: cut from top down to desired lid height).
I just loved making this gift set, and will probably use this project in one of my upcoming workshops
Hiya Stampers!! Here is my first creation using the Pinwheel sizzlit from Stampin Up! that just arrived on Monday. I *finally* tidied up my work table and had some time to sit down and tinker…. only to make another gigantic mess creating this card 😛
This is the first of many I suspect, as what I had in my mind isn’t exactly how it turned out – but it was still cute enough so I decided to keep it. I wanted to put a banner or bunting across the top – but I don’t have the pennant punch… So I improvised and used the petite curly label punch instead. I think it would have looked more like I wanted if I had of put a few more layers of bakers twine and bows at the end?!
Guess I will have to get to the work table tonight and find out huh?
I have been so busy with life the last week I *finally* got to sit down at the crafty table! *does the happy dance*
I just got my Sale-A-Bration goodies and I thought I would tinker with a technique that I will be using in one of my workshops. I don’t know what it’s called – bit when done correctly it gives the appearance of movement to an image
Here is what I made:
I cropped the background out (read: my messy craft table)- so it’s hard to see the crumb cake sponged edges that add to the vintage look & feel of this stamp set.
This was my first attempt with this technique & this stamp set so I think I will have another go at it… Tomorrow
