August 2010 Workshop

Here are the projects for this months workshop. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. I hope you enjoy what we created this month!

Cute little frog and lady bug for those little critters in your life. We used Always Artichoke, basic black and whisper white for the frog and real red, whisper white and basic black for the lady bug. The frogs punches consisted of small oval, large oval, 1 3/4" circle, 1/4" (non stampin up), 1/2", 3/4" circles and the retired flower trio punch. The lady bug punches consisted of 1" circle, 1 3/4" circle, 1/4" (non stampin up) circle and 1/2" circle. The bodies are 2 1/2" that can be cut using the circle scissor plus.

This anniversary card Was created using very vanilla card stock, basic back, and the new daffodil delight. The flower image is from the Friends never fade stamp set and the Happy Anniversary image is from the teeny tiny wishes set. We also used the curly label and eyelet border punch along with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder.

Hooo Loves you? I love you. =-) Aren't these little owls too cute? My vision of the female and male were different from the other ladies at the workshop, but that's ok. I thought the little orange vested one looked like the female but the ladies flipped the green vest over which had a floral print on it and said their girl was the green floral printed vest. Even my girls disagreed with me. I thought the orange color and design looked like a summer dress. Oh but anyways it was fun and lets get onto what was used! The card stock used are chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, old olive, pink pirouette, soft suede. Punches used are two step owl, scallop edge and two step bird punch. Stamped images are from Three little words and Things I love. We lined them up using the stamp a ma jig.
This final card we used early espresso, marina mist, certainly celery and whisper white. The stamped images are from the Aviary set and teeny tiny wishes. We used the scallop border punch, Filigree designer brads and the square lattice embossing folder.

My daughters card

Here is a card my daughter put together. I needed to make a card for my folks for their anniversary but was so caught up in the normal day to day things that I just couldn't find the time to sit and create a card. My daughter wanted to make something with my things and so I asked if she wouldn't mind making g-ma and g-pa a card. This is what she came up with. The only help she really got from me with this card was showing her how to use things like the stamp-a-majig, big shot and tying a ribbon. she chose the colors and design etc. I think it came out awesome. I am very proud of her and very thankful for her help in completing one of my tasks! Good Job Ali!!
