Lap of Luxury Workshop

These are the items made at last weeks workshop. I based the projects around the Lap of Luxury DSP and used accent stamps from Just Believe, Punch Bunch and Perfect Punches. The colour combination is Very Vanilla, Concord Crush, Pretty in Pink and Basic Grey.... very girly. I think these would make lovely Mothers Day gifts, which is coming up at the beginning of April.

I kept the projects very simple as I wanted to show off the gorgeous papers. A few punched elements and some ribbon finished them off nicely.

The card was made by embossing the acetate with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and using it as the card base, then attached a piece of DSP to the inside. I created a spine for the card with some Concord Crush CS, which I had punched using the Eyelet Border punch. This hides any adhesives used on the acetate. I used the Flower for You stamp and matching Fancy Flower punch for the focal point. The centres of the cards I used different stamps, one is from the Just Believe and the other from Punch Bunch SAB. I finished the card off with a ribbon bow (Pretty in pink Taffeta).

The notebook was covered in Concord Crush CS and a DSP panel added. This time I used the Scallop Circle punch for the base of the embellishment. One was stamped using a Perfect Punches stamp, the other left plain. The centres were the same as the card. They were finished off with some Concord Crush Stitched Poly Ribbon, which is lovely and soft not to mention a gorgous colour (I wonder why! lol).

I made a cute little post-it note keyring using a scrap of DSP, some Concord Crush CS and some punched sheets of pink Post-it notes. Top Tip - please only punch 4 or 5 sheets of post-its at a time or it will jam, and make sure you punch on the sticky end! My cropodile was strong enough to punch a hole through all the layers to fit on the keyring.

I bought the keyrings from The Range at £1.99 for 12, the notepads for £1 for 10 from Poundland and the pens were also from poundland. If any of you are thinking of doing some craft fayres, these would make lovely items to sell, especially if you put them in a pretty presentation box. 

Thanks for looking, and thanks to my ladies for another lovely evening,
Kathy. x
