Please forgive the quality of the pictures- I was in a hurry to just get them taken, so I didn't miss anything. I had planned to go back and take better ones, but they kept us pretty busy all day, and I never got the chance. I also want to say here that Tracy (scs-Lodichick) and Holly (scs-Toy) did a fantabulous job organizing and running this event. It was a blast, and I hope we get to do it again next year.
You can click on any of the pictures for a closer look.
The first picture is another gift from the gift swap, made by Cheryl Rowley:
Open view of the tin:
This was my shoebox project. I got the pattern from StampOwl - you can view the pattern on her blog here. This card folds flat and fits in a standard A2 card envelope. Cool, huh?
I used the Summer picninc DSP and stamp set Tart and Tangy from SU!'s current mini catalog.
This is my mom Helen's shoebox project. We (finally!) found the little pens at the dollar spot at Target. they were 16 to a pkg for $2.50. I say finally, because I have been on the look-out for these for months. I had the post-it's already, and had been wanting to do these for a club project.
This picture is actually right-side up, even thought the note-pad is upside down on the table. If I turn it, it looks weird, so I left it upside down.
The flower is from SU!'s level3 hostess set Time Well Spent. The image is stamped in staz-on and colored with watercolor pencils.
This is my friend Deb's shoebox project. She used DSP, ink, and ribbon to alter a key-chain tag, and then everyone stamped it with their own initial.
I don't know who made this one- it's another shoebox project- I just loved it and had to get a picture so I could CASE it. I was bummed that this wasn't one of the projects at my table, but I did love all the ones that were, so I was very happy anyway.
This project uses the SU! set Pick-a-Petal. The ribbon is SU!'s soft sky double-stitched, and it looks like there was cuttle-bugging done on the red paper. Love it!
Here's a picture of some of the shoe-box projects on the display board.
More projects. We did the bird card at my table:
More. None of these were at my table, though:
This photo shoes some of the projects that I did get to make. the projects we did at my table were (right-left)- the jumbo paperclip bookmark, the little altered jar/bottle, the notepad & pen, and the altered clipboard. Very cool projects, ladies!
Just another shot of some of the 3-d shoebox projects.
That's it for now, but as promised, I have tons more to show you, so stay tuned!
