stamping for the holidays

Pin It

now that I have my laptop, I can post my holiday workshop pics!

saturday, november 29 was my annual holiday workshop for a few close friends. there was a great amount of food, wine and fun! we made four projects that are perfect for the christmas season.

the first project was an adorable christmas jar I saw on anna's blog last year. I loved it so much, I thought this would be a great project for the workshop. I used su's merry and bright stamp set since all the gals had bought the set last year. The belly band is made from basic grey's figgy pudding.

for the second card(s), we used su's deer friends set. I gave them a riding hood red and baja breeze card base embossed with the polka dot cuttlebug folder. I put out a bunch of designer paper and let them pick their own dp and stamp. we used stampin' write markers for color.

third, was the giftcard holder. we inked up the tree from the season of joy set and used the reverse embossing technique. I had the girls pick out their own paper but this time, they selected paper from the new basic grey wassail pack *I LOVE the new wassail line*

our last project was the 2-5-7-10 treat bag. click here for directions on how to make these cutie little bags. I used paper from the basic grey fruitcake line and again used deer friends. these are great little bags for candy, little cookies, or even a gift card.

it was a fantabulous day with lots o' laughs and fun. I can't wait till we do it again!
