Don't forget to wear green.
Here are some things from my last Saturday's workshop. Plus I made the treat bags for work also for the workshop, Fancy Favor # 115965, Vintage labels # 118392 in the SALE.A.BRATION catalog, scallop circle punch #109043, stampset # 118592Tiny Tags, the heart stamped 4 times to create the shamrock, and a shiny brass brad for

Here's the buffet loaded with all the goodies..

For the spring workshop we also decorated eggs using #117179 Eggcellent Eggs Kit, which has rhinestones, egg stands, flowers, swirls, & dots already punched out for you, we blew out real eggs, painted them with classic ink, put ribbon tassles on top & at the bottom. 
Here is the card we made out of the new mini # 118598 Vintage Vogue stampset, and the new DSP # 117160 Shades of Spring, along with the scallop punch # 112091, and Certainly Celery, and Lavender Lace card stock, also, Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon to make the leaves.  Everyone did their own take off of this, some even added Dazzlin' Diamonds glitter #102023. The Build A Brad # 109108 always adds such a custom touch and so much fun to make..

Baby Shower

We had a baby shower for one of the young men that I work for. I created this Baby Shower cake as the center piece. The center of each cake is disposable diapers, then I used receiving blankets to cover them, added hair clips, and headbands, socks tied with ribbon (Stampin' Up! ribbon) baby bath, powder, tights, and rattle on top. I even put it onto a cake board.

I wish him and his wife great new Beginnings with their new arrival.

Here is the banner that I made for them. YES it's a Girl..

Saint Patrick's Day

Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Don't forget to wear green, and watch out for the Leprechauns. May your life be blessed with good health, luck, and love. I used Whisper white card stock, Glorious Green, Certainly celery ribbon, Designer series paper in certainly celery, and a Circle Fire Rhinestone brad. The shamrock is made using the heart punch. Very easy to make.

Spring workshop

Spring Workshop-March 13.  We made spring cards, this one used product out of the new Occasions mini catalog by Stampin' Up!. Designer series paper #117160-Shades of spring. Just beautiful. Cardstock is Certainly celery # 105125 and Almost amethyst. The Stamp set is  #118598 Vintage Vogue in the clear block base.  They loved working with the clear blocks. Certainly celery grosgrain ribbon # 109031, #116630 Modern label punch, #109128 Build A Brad in pewter. I love working with the build a brads, they add such a nice touch. The scallop punch#112091. Ink colors, So Saffron 105213, Lovely lilac # 102874, Orchid Oppulence #101859 and Versa Mark inside the card #102283. I put lots of other colors out on the table, and they actually created their own look, some even added Dazzling Diamonds #102023.  This card was easy to make, the designer series paper has so many color combinations, Barley Banana, Certainly celery, Orchid Opulence.

The eggs were so much fun... using the Eggcellent Eggs Kit #117179. They brought a REAL blown out egg, we painted with our Aqua Painter # 103954, any color of their choice, all Classic Ink, then we decorated with the kit supplies, so much comes in the kit. The Chocolate bunny card is using the stamp #116980, stamped on close to cocoa paper with Craft ink chocolate chip #101816, and embossed with clear powder #109130. This really gave a textured look . Abundant Hope # 118547 using the daffodil and the "Easter Blessing" from this stamp set.

As usual it is so much fun to see everyone creating their own take on a project all using the same supplies.. it's amazing how they can all be different.. I learn so much from them. My friend Chris brought her daughter n' law and her granddaughter.. who was so much fun.. she really did a beautiful job, she won a prize which was a free workshop, and got so excited. I will be looking forward to working with them all again. Thanks Debbie for keeping us laughing and for all that came. What a great way to spend a couple of hours.
For any who missed, we munched on bagels from Bagel Thyme, fresh strawberries, yogurt, coffee, tea, and pomegranite lemonade. Oh, I almost forgot, CUPCAKES iced in green for Saint Patricks Day!
