Well, tax season is winding up. Monday is the last day for Canadians to file personal taxes. Appears to me that, on my workshop schedule, I have a workshop planned for next Saturday. What was I thinking - not giving myself more of a breather after taxes? How will I be ready?!
Well, one of the sample cards is made. A second sample is 90% made. The third sample is still parked in my head (plus a hastily made sketch). After I get the samples done, then I have to proliferate them in to kits. There will be some busy nights this week, but I'm sure I can be ready!
This is the first one. (I actually used the same layout with a different embellishment and sentiment for a birthday card for my Dad too.) I love this embossing folder from Stampin' Up! that I bought from my cousin's wife who is a demonstrator (see her blog). It gives such a deep and rich impression. On the second card, we'll be using some other stamped images and on the third... I don't know yet!
For those readers who will be in attendance, please read on for your materials list.
As always, the workshop runs from 1-4pm and includes light snacks. $5 of every workshop fee is donated to SOAR. Workshop fees work in 2 tiers: $8 if you bring all your own supplies and $12 if you need to purchase the full workshop kit.
To bring your own kit, you will need:
- basics: scissors, adhesives, pencil, ruler, eraser, journaling markers
- 3 card bases and envelopes
- 1 cardfront (a piece of cardstock the size of the entire cardfront)
- 1 piece of cardstock slightly smaller than a cardfront and a co-ordinating strip of cardstock (1.5 inches by the width of your card in landscape position)
- 1 patterned paper half the size of a cardfront and 3 strips of co-ordinating cardstock (3 different colours or at least 2 different colours) each 1 inch by the width of your card
- any focal embellishments you want - die cuts, stamps, whatever (if you have nothing of this sort, I will let you use any of my stamps)'
- If you are unsure of any of these sizes, just bring full sized pieces of cardstock that co-ordinate with each other and well cut them down the day of the class. (8.5x11 pieces are fine for this class.)
