Workshop Success! WooHoo!

Well, I demonstrated at my first ever workshop yesterday. It was what I would call a success! Darla was an extremely gifted hostess. The spread was yummy! I was well-prepared and flew through my demonstrations. We had a few laughable moments. All in all it was a good time and generated some sales and great hostess benefits for Darla! Here is a photo of the cards I did. I tried to cover a variety of products & "ooh ahh" techniques that are easy to do (heat embossing, poppin' pastels, punch art). The make-n-take card involved 2-step stampin' (The Heartfelt Thanks card below).
The apple core punch art card is a CASE from someone at SCS (I don't have my thumb drive here to give proper credit. Sorry!).

I also made a very girly scrapbook page for Darla to keep since she has a daughter. This was extremely fun for me since I am surrounded by boy stuff! It utilized the Big Shot for cutting & embossed textures.

Apologies once again here for the crooked image above. My Photoshop skills are not quite what they should be yet.
So there you have it folks...a weekend filled with abundant creativity and successful sales. WooHoo! One guest even said, "Well look at that, I can be crafty after all!" I call that a job well done on my part!


DON'T FORGET to sign up for my Scrapbook WOW! class by April 27. The page is really beautiful and the techniques are fun. See details here: Amy's Scrapbook WOW!

Hope to see you there!

Blessings,
Amy
