No excuses …

No I haven’t really got any excuses for not finishing off my convention posts.  I haven’t even taken the photos of all the lovely swaps I received.  Perhaps I should just redirect you to Karen’s site – she is more on the ball than me, hee hee!!

Now this is a workshop I held 9 days ago – see I’m not to be relied on for my prompt postings!


This is the box I did as a demonstration.  I wrapped some bath bombs in cellophane, tied with a bow and put inside.  I gave this box to the hostess.  I used the lovely Baja Breeze cardstock which I am really glad is going to be one of our new colours.

I made the flower by punching out the DSP twice with the round scallop punch, then cutting in between each scallop to make a petal.  I then used my paper? to break down the fibres so that each leaf curled slightly.  I then used the five petal flower punch to punch out the centre flower using the contrasting DSP colour.  I finished it off with one of the lovely flower brads.

Below are the 2 different orientations of the make and take.  They had a choice as to which orientation they wished to make.  The credit for this design has to go to Anabel Welch as it is one she did quite a long time ago but I thought it was such a nice simple little card for a workshop and also introduced them to the double stamping and the two square punches.

Wow - I love the hostess prezzie Judy. She would have been a happy recipient. Do you mind if I case it?
