My first SU Workshop

OK - you might want to grab a cuppa or something stronger before you continue - this is a long one with loads of photos!

I did my first ever Stampin' Up class today and absolutely loved it so had to share most of it with you! Eleven lovely ladies turned up and it was so nice to put faces to names and to meet some of the friends I've met through blogging as well as to find out some of the people I know already are actually really into paper craft! Thanks to everyone who took part- can't wait to see you again in January.

These are the projects we made. We made some smaller cards too but I forgot to take photos of them.

I'm popping these projects in for these challenges:
Here's the gift bag we made. I have to credit Carole C for this as I saw her design and asked her if I could case it for my class and she kindly said yes! Thanks loads Carole - the bag was real success and was something everyone could carry their projects home in too!

We made a treat bag of snowman soup:

a 6x6 card

another 6x6 card

Here's me showing how not to do it. Trust me - that's the truth, a few errors, but they were funny!!

Louise, Lynn and Sandra

Ellis, Jeanette, Hayley, Teresa and Zoe

All using the punches, inks and stamps and a spot of mingling too

Table with a few project ideas and sample file

If you'd like to join my next workshop in January , the theme will be 'Cupcakes and love' and we've picked 'pink and chocolate' as the colour theme. The workshop will be in Nottingham and will cost £15 which needs to be paid in advance. Please email me if you're interested for details and to reserve your place.
