February Workshop

Hope everyone had a wonderful day!  I cannot believe that I had a workshop tonight and am already home.  It went so quick and was so much fun.  I think everyone really enjoyed their projects!

Our theme this month was birthday!  And, we started with this great scrapbook page!

I think it was easier than I was anticipating it being.  For the title, I had printed out 5 on a 12 X 12 piece of whisper white card stock using my digital studio and had them already cut out for the group of ladies, which I always have everything cut out, so all they have to do  is stamp and or punch.  With both of my projects tonight we used the Ice Cream parlor Designer Series paper pack.  And then of course I had to purchase the Notes and Details stamp set just for scrapbooking!  I just love it and it is so great to help you journal.  I have not wrote anything as of yet, but will within the next few days.  Also used the Create a Cupcake and the new Build a cupcake punch!  Wonderful stuff to make a wonderful scrapbook page.  Other items were Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and the two way glue, pearls and also the ribbon and buttons from the ice cream parlor series in the Sale-a-bration book!

Our final project and 2nd project was our card!  Isn't this just the cutest card!  I had seen one that Ann Fitton had done like it and knew it would be a wonderful card for a workshop and boy was it.  Thanks Ann for the inspiration.  I think hers was portrait and mine is landscape. 

With this card, I used the same stamp set which is the Create a Cupcake set and then used the build a cupcake punch.  I also used the 1 3/8" punch for the circles and again the ribbon and the buttons from Sale-a bration.  What a wonderful set this is and free with the purchase of $50 in merchandise from Stampin' Up!  Card stock is the Peach parfait, melon mambo, pacific point, daffodil delight and whisper white.  The embossing folder is the square lattice.

The last think I am going to show is the "Bits & Pieces" Jar I made for the hostess to be able to put button or whatever into and it can sit on your table or wherever you would like.  I actually used a jar that had apple butter in it and when it was gone, I just kept the jar.  There is nothing like recycling!!!  And after decorating, I added some buttons and other items to it.

Thanks for looking everyone and hope you have a wonderful evening!

These are so great! I love the little circles on your cupcake card and the ribbon/buttons add just the right touch! So glad you joined us at SUO Challenges!
