Pop-up Box card party at Gail's
Yay! What a fun day. Laura die cut tons of butterflies and flowers, I did some also... along with some cute little white picket fences and Gail had a bunch she had prepared too. We had lots and lots of flowers, butterflies, birds, fences, leaves, buttons, bows - you name it, if it fit in our "garden" we found a place for it in our pop up box cards. Many of the ladies had never made one and they loved them! This was one of the best workshops (at least I think so). I had a tutorial on my blog a couple of weeks ago - feel free to look back and run off a copy for yourself - you'll enjoy it, I guarantee :-).
I need to apologize for my (less than great) pictures. I had the flash on and didn't realize the pretty flowers were being washed out by the flash ... bummed. I hope you enjoy them anyway.
Look how different they all are. I love the way each stamper put their own spin on these. We had the same supplies available and maybe that's what made it so much fun - we kept 'stealing' ideas from each other - and adding, adding - not knowing when to stop. :-)
Laura and Robin hard at work.
Kendra and Laura - they look happy, happy, happy!
Cheryl sorting the bits and pieces to embellish some more
Look at Sarah's - I love the orange polka dots - soooo cute
You can almost see the picket fence on mine - another flash wash-out!
Pat's adorable pop up box. You can see more detail in her 'garden' - wins most photogenic!
Kathy hamming it up for the camera and I still managed to blur the little flowers - sigh.
Jean and Suzie hard at work - well, between peeks at the catalog
Everyone seemed to have a really fun time and, to tell you the truth, I think I could still be decorating this little box. Go ahead and make one today - you'll thank me!
Gail said it best when she said "If we don't quit embellishing these things, we can hand deliver them and say....
'Here's your twelve pound card'"
