Cindy's Workshop

After a few months off from workshops, Cindy's was a pleasant welcome. Because summer is so short here in Maine, most of my customers are busy enjoying the pleasant weather so I don't push workshops during the summer months. So girls, call or email me to get yours scheduled, I'm ready to go!

This is the first card I demo-d for the girls:

I wanted to show the girls how to get ruffled ribbon on the back of one of the panels using Sticky Strip and I also wanted to explain 2-step stamping since I had quite a few girls that attended the workshop that are new at stamping:

For the second card, I created a monochromatic card with lots of different elements:
