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.

Wings:

Sweetheart:


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!

Amazing projects! Did you tie all the ribbon to the hole in the metal part of the clipboard? Also, what type of adhesive did you use?
