Hello Everyone! I attended a Christmas In July crop this past Saturday. It was nine hours of non-stop Christmas themed fun! I thought that I would share with you the "make & takes" that I did.
|This adorable ornament was taught by Kelly N. Super fun to make and I
even tried out a product that I had never used before. It was enamel
accents. I used it on his antlers, hooves, & to make the white dots. |
|Here is the back side of the ornament.|
|This was taught by Susan B. I just love the elegance of this card!|
|This was taught by Loretta S. Super cute & easy card to make. See picture below as it is two pieces.|
|Isn't that great how it is a pocket card. There is plenty of room to write a holiday note on it. I also used a punch to make a slit on the bottom. A gift card fits perfectly in the slit.|
|This was taught by Ann W. I decorated both sides of it. See the below picture for the reverse side of it.|
|Here is the other side of it. I used chipboard in between the patterned paper. |
For those unfamiliar with "make & takes" here is how they work. The instructor prepares a simple project for you to complete in a short amount of time. The instructor supplies all that is needed to complete the project. Make & takes are very common at paper crafting conventions. Sometimes at convention the instructor will charge $1.00 to $5.00 for a make & take. At the crop that I recently attended all of the above make & takes were free of charge. How cool is that? I really loved all of the make & takes that I did. I am so fortunate to know such talented gals.
I also have to add that there was a contest to see who dressed the most like Christmas. Guess what? This Queen of Christmas won! I had Christmas wear on from head (my Mickey Mouse gingerbread ears) to almost my toes! It was a magical day! Thanks again for stopping by!
