I hope you are enjoying a good weekend.
Last night I did a Workshop for a lovely lady who is a very competent scrapbooker and produces some beautiful work. She was joined by 10 friends, a few that had never made a card since their childhood. I was really impressed that everyone gave the project a go and knew the non-crafters would be pleasantly surprised with their project.
We used the En Francois and Confetti stamps for the background in crumb cake (inspired by a scrapbook layout by Margaret Jones www.margaretjones.net) and used the flower and word stamps from the Bloomin' with Kindness stamp set with the vibrant Primrose Petals colours.
This stamp set is fast becoming my new favourite - I know it changes fortnightly! - and I absolutely love the image the flower gives. It gives real detail and depth and I can see this being used on lots of different projects.
What I love about working with crafters, especially new people, is that they give each project their own twist which is what it is all about really. Some of the ladies used the Polka Dot embossing folder on the background Primrose Petals later to give some texture and almost all were smitten by the Pearl jewels that soon adorned their cards and really added the finishing touches.
It was a lovely evening with lots of fun and some lovely Hostess Benefits for the Hostess. If you would like to hold a workshop in your home, please get in touch with me and I will be happy to discuss further.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
