Today's Workshop - Spring Theme.

Hi all,

Had a fabulous day today seeing ladies who love to craft :) Thanks to Betty for allowing me to demonstrate at her craft club.

As a thank you for allowing me to come along, I made Betty a little gift - a box to hold some foiled chocolate eggs inside and an Easter card as her request for today's workshop was for a Spring theme. Below is the gift box I made, which is like the one made for my Christmas Class here, except I used spring-like colours and combined it with the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Punch Bunch. The card that I also demoed for the club and gave away will have to wait to be revealed as this will be part of my April Cardmaking Class so sneak peeks will be shown in due course.

Here is the Hostess gift:

Scallop Circle Box - For You (Side View - Lid On)

Daffodil Delight.
Accessories: Scallop Edge Border Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8 Circle Punch, 1-1/4 Circle Punch, Stampin' Write Marker - Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz, Sponge Dauber, Bone Folder, Window Sheet, Mini Glue Dots, Sticky Strip and 3D dimensionals.
Box Size: 3-5/8" x 2-1/2" x 2-1/2".

So, based on the request of Spring, I decided to use Greenhouse Garden stamp set for the Make & Take as it's a favourite of mine and thought the ladies could handle the stamp-a-ma-jig to do the two-step stamping technique.

Here are the cards the ladies made below, in a choice of either Melon Mambo or Pumpkin Pie:

Greenhouse Garden - Melon Mambo with Pretty In Pink

Greenhouse Garden - Pumpkin Pie with Daffodil Delight

Stamps: Greenhouse Garden (P.51) and Oval All (P.64).
Cardstock: Confetti White, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie.
