Girly Workshop Fun!!!!

Hi all.

A few weeks back I had a workshop hosted by my Bestie. We had only a diligent few, but man-o-man did we have some fun!!! She requested that we use the All Dressed Up Framelits....so no problem there. I love these things. I also wanted to include a couple of new items from the brand new catalogue, So this is what I came up with......




 Now before you all fall off your chairs....yes....I KNOW there is a HUGE use of PINK in these projects. It was forced upon me by the DSP I used, which is the very pretty Gingham Garden. It also had a flower from Mixed Bunch stamped in Versamark to fill in the blank background. Now the OCD side of me also meant that each attendee had a different strip of DSP and therefore different coloured main CS, inks etc. I also used the Label Love and Banner Greetings stamp sets and the co-ordinating punch with Label Love - Artisan Punch. As you can imagine, with framelits, embossing, bling and dimensionals it was creative chaos!!!


Sadly I did not get pics of the ladies' creations (bad demo!!) I did however make my hostess a unique thank you gift, a box of notecards and co-ordinated box in the new 2013-15 In Colours!!

 
 
These were the 4 cards inside.....
 
 
Now (as I later found out when I opened a NEW packet of note cards) these are the OLD, smaller SU notecards. The new ones are MUCH bigger, which also explains why, no matter how I tried to work it, I could not make them the same as the set I was inspired by here. Still, there were very cute!!! Here is one close up.......
 
 
I made the box so that the cards nested snugly inside and on the top, I used the new Quaterfancy DSP and I paper pierced the framelit. Can you tell I love using framelits??

Looks like you all had fun, the cards were great, and yep lots of pink for you! I really don't think I should tease you anymore, pink seems to be your new colour lol. Glad you all had a good time and looks like the hostess was spoilt. Hugs xx

Haven't you been a busy little bee! This post came while I was in Vanuatu. I had to 'delete' all my Feedly when I got back ... too many to catch up on ... then I did catch up gradually whenever a new post came through! Sadly ... I missed this one! You are having such a lot of fun with SU! aren't you!? Love these little projects. Hugs xxx
