10 Great Reasons

Bookings are closing very soon for our much anticipated Christmas Card Workshops. Whilst there are still limited places available, we need to close off bookings, so that we can ensure that the materials that we need to order for you arrive in time. I thought I would take the opportunity to remind you of all the fabulous reasons that you will want to come to one of these events.

1. Number one reason to come to the Christmas Card Workshops
is the wonderful, creative & fun PEOPLE that you will find there.

2. The PROJECTS have been designed to be elegant, simple & repeatable,
using a great stash of Stampin' Up! papers, dies, tools, ribbon & bling.

3. If you have been to a Christmas Card Workshop, you will know we always have
great prizes. This year Stampin' Up! have been extremely generous in their support
and we have well over $1000 of product to give away at each event. Pictured below
are the RAFFLE PRIZES for the Coorparoo Event.

The proceeds from these fabulous raffle prizes ensures we continue to support the Mater Mothers Bereavement Footprints Programme.

4. There is always a great supply of DISPLAY PROJECTS that you are welcome to photograph.

5. The CARD COMPETITION costs 50 cents per card to enter. We would like to see Christmas Cards created primarily with Stampin' Up! Product. Participants in the Workshop will then vote and 3 lucky winners will share in $250 in prizes!

6. Of course, we always have a lovely AFTERNOON TEA to enjoy together.

7. This year we will have a special box at all our Christmas Workshops. We will be collecting Christmas Card Donations for our Australian Troops serving overseas as part of a
'CARDS FOR TROOPS' program. These cards will ensure soldiers are able to send a card home at Christmas to their loved ones. This project is being coordinated for the Paper Angels by the lovely Anna Wheaton who is in turn helping 2 NSW Stampin Up Demonstrators who initiated this idea. So please, do bring along any cards you did not use from last year and we ask please if you can provide envelopes with the cards.

8. We will have SPOT PRIZES during the course of the day

9. COLOR INSTRUCTIONS will ensure you can recreate
your favourite workshop projects at home

More of my older creations

I was very pleased with the result of this Elmo card. Made using the Sesame St Cricut cartridges.

One of my more masculine creations. I used a cricut cartridge to cut out the lettering and coloured the stamped image using chalks.

Pre-Stampin Up Cards

This card was one of my first attempts at stamping and using markers with an aqua brush to blend the colours. I sanded the first layer of the card and embossed the second layer. I was pretty happy with the outcome.

This was a Stampin Up design creation I made but using some of my older cardstock. I created these lovely shoes for Kaitlyn's party gift instead of a traditional lolly bag. I cut the shoe template then applied the Versamark and Dazzling Diamonds, made swirls using the bone scorer and heat embossed to give the faux leather look. All the girls loved this gift.

This was one of my pre stampin cards. I created this card using my Cricut Expression and the Mickey and Friends plus the Mickey Fonts cartridges.
