Easter Gifts

This year for Easter I made up Milk Carton's (can not remember where I got the template from) for the children and the Basket's for the adults. The Basket I think I got from Split Coast Stampers.

Of course they were all filled with Chocolate Easter Eggs. Everyone loved their gifts, so I was told.

Another Workshop

Last week I had another booked workshop. The workshop was for a local church Ladies Club which happened to be hosted by my Mum last Thursday morning.
It started off only being for 4 people Monday morning to ending up by Tuesday morning 14 people plus maybe 2 extras. Well you can imagine my mad rush to having everything made by 9:30 am Thursday morning.

The workshop went well and everyone told me that they enjoyed themselves and they liked their make & takes. I think what helped the workshop to run smoothly was that I had double of almost everything that I was using, thanks to the wonderful Debbie M (fellow demonstrator and sister-in-law). Thanks Debbie.
Here are the projects that we made:

Christmas Card that I made for a workshop that I a couple of weeks ago (see First Workshop Away From My Place - Part Two).

A Bookmark we used Groovy Guava and Very Vanilla card stock, Bud Basic stamp set, Basic Outline Jumbo Wheel, Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky inks, Stamp-a-ma-jig.

An Envelope Bag we used Whisper White, Blue Bayou and Purely Pomegranate card stock, Circle of Friendship stamp set, So Swirly Jumbo Wheel, Blue Bayou ink, Envelope, Cutter Kit, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Double-Stitched Ribbon (Blue Bayou).

Again I handed out Thank You's to everyone but was limited by time with what I did so I just did was decorated up some Dove chocolate by punching out card stock using the Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch and 1-1/4" Circle Punch. I forgot to take a photo of the Thank You but they were the same as the one's that I made to go into the Envelope Bag for First Workshop Away From My Place - Part Two.

Guess what instrument that he mainly plays?

For my first workshop for this year the theme was Easter and something little for Valentine.

The ATC and Genie Bag along with the different techniques that were used were from Split Coast Stampers and the idea for the card layout came from Poetic Artistry - Mojo Monday's.

KWerner Colour Challenge No. 25

I am running a bit late with Kristina's Colour Challenge this week but I have finally found some time to be able to make the card.

This time I found the colours easier to work with as they are more my type of colours that I usually use but I have also enjoyed the challenges over the past few weeks.

When I took the photo this morning it was a lit bit overcast so here goes, this is my entry for this weeks challenge.

The stamp sets that were used are Priceless, Season of Joy, So Swirly Jumbo Wheel. The accessories that were used are VersaMark, Stampin Dimensionals, Crafter' Tool Kit (for the paper piercing), Stampin' Write Markers.

For my first workshop this year I suprised my customers by thanking them for their loyal support last year. Inside each of these Fantasy Keepsake Stepper Boxes (thank you Terri Digness) their was a Gift Voucher representing a percentage of the total of what they had purchased last year. They all really liked the surprise.
