I just have to share with you my JOY when I hold a workshop and unearth an enthusiastic stamper (or two) who have never been introduced to SU products (this their first time) and just can’t believe their eyes!
I had one such workshop this morning, and want to say “a big thanks” to my stunner of a hostess Kylie (or Linksy as some of us are coming to know her ), for introducing me to such a great bunch of girls! I am looking forward to seeing some of them again at Kim’s workshop in June!
So what projects did we make that created such enthusiasm you may be wondering?
Firstly I showed the girls a cute Lolly Box using my fave birthday set Party Hearty:
And my large tag punch creates are great name tag if you are using them as the lolly bag for a birthday party..
And a then demonstrated a Birthday Card using the same colours and stampset:
I’ve started with a card base of Kiwi Kiss, added some Pacific Point DSP, and stamped my cupcake from Party Hearty, first in Pacific Point and then in Riding Hood Red, Cutting out the Red icing and popping it up on dimensionals. My candles are also cut out and arranged on dimensionals in the shape of my chosen number (7 works really well but I dare you to try a 3 or 8!)…
I have used my trusty FREE sale-a-bration stamp set Vintage Labels for the Happy Birthday Scalloped Circle (4 of the girls at the WS earned their FREE SAB set by spending $100 or more)…
The ribbon for my bow is Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon and I have tied it on to a white paperclip.
Cute for boys or girls eh?
For my next project I made a sweet card using Raspberry Tart DSP patterned paper and the Large Bloom for the Embrace Life stampset. I’ve repeat stamped first using Kiwi Kiss and then Riding Hood Red. I love the effect this makes! I also showed the girls the scoring technique cased over at www.SarahKlass.com on a white strip of card and then sponged it with Kiwi Kiss, allowing the ink to pick up and highlight the scored lines. Again my label is from SAB Vintage Labels and the sentiment is from the great Hostess level 1 set Best Yet
And for the make and take project:
I just love this colour combo of Kraft, Baja Breeze and Close to Cocoa Card. I snuck a little Kaleidescope DSP in there and finished the look with Baja Breeze Striped Grograin.
And of course following my theory that it should look even better as a scrapbook Layout:
This sweet little 8×8 layout was one of the many hostess gifts I left with Kylie for “inspiration” while she plays with her new SU products.

Have a great weekend- and if you are one of the enthusiastic new stampers I met today – THANKS!
