Amazing SU all day workshop!

Morning all. Happy Valentines Day!

I wasn't going to post today but I just I just had to share with you what a fab day I had yesterday at Julies SU workshop. It ran from 10am -4pm and I just had the most fab day with some wonderful friends and wonderful products. I have quite a few pictures to show you of the projects that we made. They were all made using SU products, mainly the Sunny Day scrappin kit and the Happy Moments, Vintage labels and Whimsical words stamp sets which are on offer through saleabration at the moment. These stamps sets are just gorgeous and you get one free every time you spend £45 on SU products until the end of february.

So here's what I made. In the morning we made some 3D projects. We made a lovely box filled with sweets and then this little gift pouch which has 2 freddo's (the chocolate frogs!) in. Such a simple and fab gift to give to someone and so easy to make! I will definately be making more of these in the future.

Then we moved onto this gorgeous birthday tin. The tin came plain and we decorated it. The idea is you use it to store your birthday cards in. Or I think it would again make a lovely gift for someone.

Here is the inside of the tin and you can see we have added a little calendar page so you can write in each month when peoples birthdays / aniversary's are so you don't forget!

And here are a few of the cards I made to put in my tin. I love the bright sunny colours, perfect as we move into spring / summer!

This is my favourite card. So simple to make. I just stamped the flowers onto some whisper white CS and coloured them in with inks and my blender pen to create a background.

I love the sentiment on this birthday card. It's from the whimsical words stamp set available through saleabration.

This present stamp is perfect for a quick birthday cards and suitable for men or women depending on the colours you use.

I love this sweet birdcage image. When I first saw it I though 'what would I do with that image' but this card is adorable and has really given me inspiration on how to use the stamp! It has been stamped onto an oval adhesive die cut from the Sunny Day scrappin kit!

Well I hope you are still with me and have enjoyed seeing what we created at Julies workshop yesterday. If you like any of the items I have used to create these projects then you can get them from the lovely Julie here! I can highly recommend her customer service. I am so lucky to live near and be able to attend her fab classes and she has become such a dear friend to me. Thank you so much Julie for all your hard work and inspiration!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! The sun is shining today and my beau is home from his snowboarding trip just in time for Valentine's day. Wonder if he remebered to get me a card?!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
