Holiday Workshop

Yesterday I had 8 ladies over for a card workshop and we really had a lot of fun! We made 10 different cards using the retired Holiday Collage set and the Reece Soar with it Collection. I made up the samples and pre cut the paper but, as usual, there were many tweaks to the designs as folks made changes to suit their tastes. I joked that the first time it happened my feelings were hurt but now I love to see the different ideas that come from this event.

Thanks to Rosalina for snapping a group shot of her cards...


Here are some of my favorites that you can't really see. The designs were simple - the idea was to let the paper shine here and make it simple enough to make muliples for Christmas.



I had fun designing these and challenged myself to use some long neglected tools: gold embossing powder, gold eyelets and believe it or not, my crimper!!

Hope this inspires you to get started on your Christmas cards...

I'll be back on Friday for our Fall Blog Hop from The Angel Company. This hop will focus on cards and projects that capture that fabulous flavor of fall and the Thanksgiving season. It's open to everyone so I hope you have a chance to play along - it'll be open until Saturday around 10 pm.
