November Workshop

Here are four of the five projects we're going to be doing this month.  Workshop dates are Monday November 28th and Tuesday November 29th both from 7 to 9pm.  Cost will be $15 and I need to know if you're coming (and any guests you'd like to bring) by Sunday November 13th (even if you don't know which day yet -- I need to know how many kits to make up).
Don't worry, the bottom right box will be filled with something -- maybe mints, maybe kisses, something.  Each item holds a different treat that you'll have to see when you get here.  :)  And these gift ideas are great for friends, family, and co-workers, and everyone else you want to sprinkle holiday cheer with.  So let me know which day you'd like to come, and we'll have a great time making these.

Winter Wonderland Card

Tammy Wisterman inspired this card.  Hers was crystal blue and grey flannel.  I instantly fell in love!  Of course I made a few changes including color and embellishments to come up with this.

The snowflakes are made from our Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (love it!!) before they were stamped.  The center of the large snowflake is from our bling buttons while the center of the medium snowflake is from the clear sparkles.

To be fair, I need to let you know something.  I used Moonstruck paper and ink in this sample.  But when I was writing out the materials I used, I changed Moonstruck to Outdoor Denim.  Why you might ask?  Well, we no longer sell Moonstruck on it's own or even in a shade pack.  I want to steer you in the right direction so you can make several of these cards if you want without having to spend a fortune.  If you really want to use Moonstruck, you'll have to get the Summer Sampler Pack X5923 (for 8.5" x 11") where you'll get two sheets (enough for 8 cards) or X5918 (for 12"x12") yielding 12 cards.  Just so you know.  :)
