Creative Fun

Well Saturday was a full day of creative FUN @ two local scrapbooking stores for a friend and I.

We had both signed up for a FREE card making class during a grand reopening for a new location of one of the shops.  Then we later discovered a shop just around the corner was offering hour long classes the same day so decided to make a day of it and sign up for a bunch.

We started the day @ one class and made stenciled tags:

Second we hopped over to the shop for an hour spent putting together some simple kit cards:

I still have a HUGE package of pre-scored cards, envelopes, printed chipboard die cuts, colored printed punch out embellishment pieces, package of rub-ons & more.

This is just a sampling of what I have left:

Back to the first shop of the day we started our third workshop we played with resist techniques:

The final workshop was making a variety of paper flowers:

This was a full day of activities and when I got home I was like a kid who was over stimulated and overtired.  Not much good for anything else but kick'n back and relaxing to rewind and feel back to normal. 

Now the morning after I am rewound LOL...and reflecting on what techniques I will work with as I write this post to share pics of my finished techniques and card samples.  : )

I found a couple of favorite resist techniques that I will play with. I also found a few I didn't like. LOL ; )
A day out with a friend playing with someone else supplies and being able to make a bug mess is always fun! LOL : )

You will have to sweet talk your shops into offering some quick classe like these. They are a good way for a shop to bring in customers and introduce them to products and techniques they haven't tried. The shops offer a discount on items used in the workshops that day too. It's a win-win for both the shop and the customer. : )
