This was a favorite class of many and I hope to offer it again this winter for those that were unable to get into the class.  I used 1/2  the Secret Garden's Simply Scrappin Kit to make the accordion album.  I also have card samples in the Photo Album "Secret Garden Simply Scrappin" with 25 card samples that I made with the other 1/2 of the kit. – with lots of extra left overs for more projects.  This would make great gifts for the upcoming holiday season, I can't wait to make one for our holiday photos with the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin Kit.  Download accordion_album_pattern.doc

Tonight was my OSW class we had a great time!  I am posting a wonderful card holder that you can use to give as a gift.  Sue Ellen Bone (one of fellow demonstrators) created the directions page for this neat project.  Who wouldn't enjoy a cute holder with 10 Cards.  Want to make some for friends download the pattern here  Download gift_tag_pouch_6_x_6.doc .   To see all the card included in the pouch check out the Photo Album One Sheet Wonder Groovy Guava

I think this was one of my all time favorite workshop projects.  Using the stamps out of the Three for You Punch Box to create a frog was what sold me on this awesome tin.  Catherine Harwood a Stampin' Up! demonstrator (friend and mentor) did this card on her blog and hence I had to have the tin!   I have found this to be the most versatile of all the tins so far.  It has allowed me to be creative (which is something in itself) and have an endless ability to come up with new ideas. 


The other project we did for July Workshops was using the technique fossil stone.  Now many of you know I don't like to spend to much time making a card.  Quick and easy since most of the time I have to make them seconds before having to leave for the special occasion!   This technique is quick and easy and looks like you fussed.  Inspire by Julie 's Blog you can find a great tutorial there and more fun ideas.  Can one get to many? I think not! 

For this card we used the always favorite "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set.   I think what was the biggest hit of this card is the New In Colors Wild Wasabi and Sky Blue – I keep using up all my new double stitched ribbons – can't keep them on the shelf I will need to start ordering two at a time I guess.  My husband wants to challenge me to make a card without a ribbon.  Can you call it a card without ribbon?
