October Workshop

Good Friday to everyone!  I know I will be glad to start the weekend.  Hope all of you are doing well. 

Today, I am sharing what we did last night at our Fall Workshop.  Workshops are a lot of work, but so much fun and we all had a blast.  This card uses two stamp sets, studio sketches and grateful greetings.  I love both sets.  The studio sketches is such a great stamp set and I have loved using it for fall cards.  The grateful greetings has everything from Halloween to Thanksgiving to Christmas to Valentines day.  You can't go wrong with this wonderful stamp set.  And of course my favorite bigz die was used on the card, the top note along with the embossing folder square lattice as the background.  Other items used was the 1/8" taffeta ribbon in early espresso and sponges for sponging the frames of the stamped image, Stampin' Up! markers for the coloring and of course the log cabin smooch spritz.  That was an after thought and I really like the way it turned out and so did all the guest at the workshop.  Colors used were early espresso, cajun craze, daffodil delight and whisper white.  Used the Circle scissor for the larger round and the 2-1/2" circle punch.

Our second fall project was this scrapbook page which was inspired by another demonstrator.  I changed it up quite a bit and of course had to add my grandchildren to the mix of this wonderful page.  Everyone had a wonderful time working on it and we used quite a few punches.  For some reason using punches seem to brighten everyone up.  They just love creating something from a punch and these pumpkins did the trick.  My title page was done through My Digital Studio and of course I did theirs the same way except it read "Fall 2010" instead of "Grammy's Little Pumpkins."  Colors used here are chocolate chip, very vanilla and old Olive.  The pumpkins are made from Tangerine Tango and the following punches were used:  the new medium 3/4" X 15/16" oval, the large 1-3/4 X 7/8 oval, the large 1-3/8 circle.  The fence was made using the dotted scallop ribbon border punch and the word window punch (cut in half).  For the leaves I used the extra large bird punch.
Thanks so much for looking and hope your Friday is filled with joy!
