Workshop Samples and Hostess Gift!

Hello everyone!  Tonight is my workshop and these are the items we will be working on!  I was really excited about the outcome and hope they like it as much as I do!

This is a page I put together using a sketch from Got Sketch!  The sketch was for one photo and I wanted at least two, so I changed it up a little.  But there are times I just need a sketch to get me motivated and this one did the job.  The photos are from my daughter's bridal shower about 2 1/2 weeks ago.  The one I almost missed!  I got up at 2:30 that Saturday Morning to get a flight out early enough to make the shower and then was not sure they would be able to get me on an earlier flight.  How I scheduled a business meeting out of town and a bridal shower around the same time I don't know!  Maybe it was brain overload with the wedding and everything else!lol

The second card we will be making is this wonderful card below using one of the new stamp sets in the Summer Mini.  As soon as I saw this set, I knew I had to have it.  I just love summer and this stamp set will definitely get the use it deserves!

Of course I found this design from Laura Lipe and knew I had to share it with the ladies in our stampin group.  You can find the directions to this card template here!  Thanks Laura for a wonderful funky-fold card to share with my ladies.

Here is a side view of the card!

And last but not least is the hostess gift for my hostess!  I used the new paper from the summer mini to cover this notebook and when I was trying to figure how to decorate it, my daughter said, "Mom it is beautiful just as it is."  So I took her word for it and just let it ride.  The new paper below is called "Beyond the Garden" and is absolutely beautiful!

Here is the backside of the notebook and it also have a place keeper built in with the ribbon.  That way you know what pages have already been written on or if you would like to mark a specific page for something.

Thanks so much for looking and hope you have a wonderful evening!
