Made this card as part of team gift for Telford StampinUp event at the weekend. Had to make 15 of these, didn't seem too bad bearing in mind the size, but when I started cutting up the papers, didn't realise when I counted up, there was over 300 pieces of paper to cut up, some as small as 3/4" square!

I will be running a workshop on making men's cards. I haven't any photos as yet, but if you would like to join me, please contact me. Not sure of the cost as yet, depends on numbers but probably around the £5 -£10 mark.
I might be making something like this as a card.

We also can take cards fir Telford, and our team leader wants to share a shoe box for crafting in the evening before. I hadn't got a shoe box, so decorated an old box. Just stamped on some copy paper, painted the box with gesso first and then attached a stamped piece of paper.
Made swaps for Telford, and then told we need some more for team swaps, so these are what I came up with.
Last Saturday I spent the day making swaps ready for the Stampin' Up regional training event in Telford in a couple of weeks time.
Really pleased with the results. Bought a job lot of mini soaps from eBay, all different fragrances and colours which gave me the inspiration for the different colours to make.
Have used a number of colours. Used the envelope punch board, score board and a circle punch. Have used gorgeous grunge stamp, creative elements stamp and chalk talk for the label.
Used whisper white cardstock.
A couple of cards made this week.
Mix and matched the stamps. Words came from each other's set. The poppy one is a hostess set (simply sketched), whereas the other is in regular catalogue (hopeful thoughts). Colours used, whisper white cardstock, crisp cantaloupe, smoky slate.
I used the grey stamp for the bottom half of the tree, and crisp cantaloupe for the top half. I like the effect this has made.
Have added a couple of pearl gems from my own stash for accent.
Made the cards for someone who passed away recently from work, RIP Sam.
