At convention I attended a group meeting for the STARZ group – that includes everyone in Wendy Randall’s downline. Wendy, Sue and I traveled from Georgia to attend convention. Most of the others in Wendy’s downline were from California and a few from Texas and Arizona. I enjoyed visiting with all of these girls because I don’t normally see them the rest of the year. At our meeting Wendy did an awesome presentation on Taking Better pictures and Scrapbooking. We saw a few demos and then there were 5 projects for us to make – each one was designed by a different person. I presented my Tile Card – you can click HERE to see it.
There were two other cards that used the Circle Circus stamp set – one designed by Michele Scileppi – the colors were Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Old Olive. And she used the Big Shot dies – Daisy #2 and the Top Note for the embellishments on the card. Her example also had a tag hanging off the hemp cord but I left that off of mine.
Another Circle Circus card was designed by Elizabeth Martinez. The colors she used were Soft Suede and Crushed Curry. We used a variety of circle punches to punch out the different images in the stamp set. The Crushed Curry print from the Razzleberry Lemonade paper was added across the font of the card. Then the Soft Suede ribbon and a brad finished off the card. We will be making this card in my class on Friday.
Wendy presented a mini scrapbook made with the new Thoroughly Modern file folders and stored inside one of the new gusseted envelopes. The colors on the folders are Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Rose Red and Sahara Sand. We decorated it using the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and the new Butterfly punch. Ribbon accents were added. One of the inside pages was folded over to create a pocket.
And one of the California girls (sorry I’m not sure who) showed us a fancy favor box filled with love notes. The colors were Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White. The Razzleberry Lemonade paper was used to add the accents on the box and mini cards. Some jumbo eyelets and ribbon were used to create the handle. The box is cut using the new Fancy Favor Box die for the Big Shot.
After everyone shared their project we all worked on them the rest of the night. It was a fun meeting.
