Today's Workshop - A Mother's Day Theme

Hi there. Just popping on for my once per month blog post, lol. I really do have the best of intentions, but I just seem to have a hard time getting on here lately. One of these days...

Anyway, I had a couple of friends ask about the CTMH workshop I hosted today, so I wanted to share a few photos. This month's workshop was based on two projects I learned at Creative University back in February (still haven't posted about that awesome experience & I have lots of fun photos). The workshop attendees each made an altered clipboard and a matching greeting card with removable corner bookmark.

When people rsvp'd I gave them the option to choose one of 4 paper packs to be used on their projects. They could choose "Sweetheart", "Mayberry", "Miracle" or "Wings". We had a variety of each today, "Sweetheart" being the #1 choice.

Here's the clipboard I made at Creative University (and the inspiration for the workshop). This is using "Sweetheart" paper.

Look at those fun paper flowers. They're a great thing to make while watching TV.

This clipboard was designed and taught to us by a wonderful lady named Denise Anderson-Turley. I just loved it and couldn't wait to share her great idea. I didn't get photos of all 8 of the clipboards from today, but I did get a few. I like how everyone's was a little different and I like all of the different paper packs as well.

Here's Marcy's in "Mayberry":

Kathy's using "Miracle":

Karen's using "Mayberry":

Shelley's using "Miracle":

And Bridget did hers in "Sweetheart" and she even came prepared with a photo. Gold Star for Bridget, lol.

I like how everyone did their own thing with flower and sentiment placement. These are really fun to make!

We also made a matching card with a removable corner bookmark. I also learned how to make this at Creative University. The card I made was designed by Jennifer Royal. I took Jenn's exact layout for the card and just changed the paper and stamped images. Each person's card matched their clipboard in case they wanted to combine them as a gift for someone.

Here's a shot of the cards in the 4 different papers:

And here they are individually with the corner bookmark removed. I really like how they all turned out. I think my favorite is probably the "Miracle" paper.





If you're not sure exactly what a corner bookmark is, here's one in action.

Pretty cool huh?

Well folks, that's all for today. I must go watch the Amazing Race. Toodles!
