Projects For My First Workshop!

I have been a demonstrator since March and I JUST had my first workshop last Thursday! I had always wanted an opportunity to do one but had never found someone willing...until I met Holly! :) Holly and her hilarious friends were all friends of Leanne's so when Leanne dropped her demonstratorship, she told them about me! I can't even tell you how much fun I had at this workshop! We laughed non-stop! It was so much fun! Anyway, these are the make and takes that we did. The first one is a little triangle treat box that they could use for their students (they were all teachers).

The second was a gorgeous card (that looks awful in this picture but I finally gave up) that we added dazzling diamonds to! I am seriously in awe at how much a little glitter can add to a card! It's unbelievable! I also wanted to show them how to use the scallop edge punch so I added that little touch to the bottom of the card!

This was the hostess gift that I gave Holly. I found the dimensions for the box off of Cammie's blog. It was the perfect size for the ribbon, punches, and stamp that I wanted to include inside. I just added a handle for some height. I really like how it turned out too!

Well, thanks for listening to me brag about my first workshop. I will admit that my presentation was really rough and rocky but it was still a blast!

Stephanie, you belittle yourself- your presentation was NOT rough and rocky- my friends are just outrageously LOUD. I know, I am too- but we sure had fun! All of our new toys arrived today and we are all too tired to play- lol. Looking forward playing again soon. Maybe over Christmas break we can...
