Evelyn's workshop

Last summer  I did a "Christmas in July" craft show.  Didn't sell a lick of Stampin' Up!, but I got my name out there. A few of the people who stopped by my table signed up for my mailing list and attended my stamp camp.  The best thing that happened to me that day was that I was stationed beside my friend Evelyn Wheeler who is a Pampered Chef consultant.  I have hosted two Pampered Chef shows for Evelyn over the last few years, so it was only fitting that I ask her to host a Stampin' Up! workshop for me.

Recognize that stamped image?  It's the large pine tree from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.  I got this idea from Sharon Field and simplified it up a bit for my friend Evelyn's make-n-take.

The colors I chose were Real Red and Always Artichoke. I stamped the tree on Whisper White, then added the stamped and punch ornament with some Stampin' Dimensionals and some retired gold cording. Then I matted it with Real Red and Always Artichoke card stock.

What I really loved about doing the workshop for Evelyn was that some of the ladies decided to personalize their envelopes with the pine cone stamp. They all turned out really cute.

Happy stamping!
