My Halloween Workshop

Saturday, October 25, 2008

I hold monthly workshops at my home for CTMH on Fridays at 6:30 til about 9 or so. We have a small but fun little group. I have great support in my business venture with my friend Dominique, her mom Elaine and Aunt Althea. My friend Janene, who is also a CTMH rep comes as well. It's a night of crafty fun, lots of laughs and creativity. I designed 3 cards and lifted one from the the new catalog but modified it in my own way as always. I cut the papers and put them as well as any supplies we are using in bags for each girl. I use baskets to spread around the table to hold the stamps and inks we'll be using. It's a pretty Scraptastic set up!! Here's the cards I came up with for this month's workshop.
This first card is my lift from the Winter Catalog with the creepy cobwebs stamp
This next card is the spotlight technique with the Spooky Night set. I made the moon 3-D and the fence using foam dots.
This next card I stamped the orange card stock with cobweb from the Creepy Cobwebs set and then cuttlebugged it with the dots dye and then cut the strips into 1 inch X 4. I stamped the ghost from our Boo-ti-ful set and then stamped another image and cut out the trick or treat bag and colored it orange and used a pop dot to add dimension.
Lastly, here is my Spinner card. I used the cobweb dye from cuttlebug and cut out a circle and used dental floss to position the stamped circles in the center of the larger circle punch out. The other side says BOO and has googly eyes in the center of each O's.
I was really pleased with how the cards came out. Unfortunately I got home about 6 from my son's soccer practice last night and got a message that Dominique and her mom could not make it to the workshop and had to cancel. I called the other ladies and they preferred to cancel too if the others could not join us. Guess October hasn't been my month for crafting it seems. With Halloween next Friday we really can't reschedule but I have some cool cards to send out last minute!
So I gathered up my little girl and picked up Janene and went on a run to Micheals. I found a great way to store my $1 stamps with this album I found for a for $1 too! Purple flowers and so it!

Look how easily it stores those mini stamps and you can quickly flip thru the pages. I love little functional bargains like this!

DH is heading out to watch the UFC fights at his buddies so it's Lily and me for the night. Hmmm...scrap time! I almost have a Halloween layout from last year, Lily's 1st Halloween. I'd also like to take a walk around the neighborhood and check out the decor! I love this time of year
Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Darn it! I wish the class wasn't canceled. Those cards are so cute. I will have to try that spinner card on my own now...=) Glad we got to hang out at Michael's...thanks.

Denise said... all the cards! Especially the spooky one, I may have to go out and buy that embossing folder now! I have the haunted house but didn't use it yet! Your workshop looks like it would be a great time!
