March 8 for $10 Workshop

Hello! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. Life got a little crazy. We lost our internet for a week. I had to make an ER visit. (You can read about that on this post.) At any rate, I have a number of things to show you over the next week or so.

The first things I want to show you are the four cards we made at the last 8 for $10 workshop in early March. I used a number of stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration brochure and Spring Mini Catalog.

The first card is a complete CASE of a card by Carrie Gaskin. I just loved the polka dot texture on the card base using a Textured Impressions folder for the Big Shot, the color scheme, using the patterned paper for the hillside--just everything.  It was very easy to duplicate for a workshop. Be sure to note the tiny little heart on the front door of the house. It comes from the Pinking Hearts Border punch along the red strip of cardstock.

The next card is a CASE of a card made by the CEO of Stampin' Up!, Shelli Gardner. She has been traveling the country doing workshops for demonstrators through a contest Stampin' Up! sponsored.  Needless to say, I didn't win. She's been posting the Make & Take projects she's been making at the workshops. I thought this card was cute, and the neatest thing is that the flower is made using one of the tree images from the Good Neighbors Sale-A-Bration stamp set.

The third card is a design inspired by Mary Fish. She used the Sweet Pea DSDSP for her card, but I chose to use the Welcome Neighbor DSDSP that you can get FREE during Sale-A-Bration. The stamped sentiment image is from another Sale-A-Bration item, the Vintage Labels stamp set. Hurry! Sale-A-Bration ends this week on Wednesday. Contact me ASAP if you'd like to place an order before this fantastic promotion ends.

The final card is one that I made on my own. I looked at some other cards using this Picnic Parade Level II Hostess Set from the Spring Mini Catalog, and finally settled on this design. I've seen a number of mostly white cards lately, and I really like that look right now. Thanks for stopping by!

I really like the cards. I was just catching up on my google reader tonight & tagged the Mary Fish card to case for my April 8 for $10s. I think I'm going to make it a square & put it onto a card vertically. We'll see how that turns out.

Thanks for sharing!
