Sara’s Workshop in a Box

With the August Hostess Special going on who wouldn’t want to take advantage of a Workshop in a Box. Call a few friends and invite them over to stamp. I supply the projects and you supply the fun. You collect the orders and we get together via phone or email and close your workshop. You will receive an EXTRA $25 in Stampin’ Up! Merchandise until the end of August with a $350 workshop. That’s in addition to the regular Hostess Benefits. If you are interested just contact me for more details.

This is my Workshop in a Box for Sara…

This card showcases The Batty For You Set. It’s what Sara had on hand that she wanted to use in her workshop…it was fun creating this for her. I used the Sanded background stamp and then sponged with Perfect Plum and Pumpkin Pie. then I added some black around the edges to give it a little smoky feel. The ribbon treatment is done using my Magic Bow Maker and the 1 1/4” Striped Grosgrain in Black. I did a little Ribbon Shredding on the ends…..what do you think?

Since we use sets we have in common (or you can pre-purchase a set from me to work around) she decided to use The Dasher Stamp. This is a clean and simple card that still has a bit of WOW effect with the Embossing and Silver Card Stock.

Sara is a long distance customer of mine who does Workshops in a Box for me. Here is what Sara had to say the other day on my blog…..she’s so sweet!!!

“Lee's putting together another "party-in-a-box" for me. We met when I was living in Florida and now I'm in Idaho. I didn't want to lose my favorite demonstrator when I moved, so Lee just "moved" with me! :) Every three or four months I have a party -- Lee and I coordinate and choose sets that we both have. Then she cuts all the paper and sends me everything so that I can be a "demonstrator for a day!" Works perfectly! :)”

This may work perfectly for you too. Let me know if this is something you would like to do with your friends.

Thanks for stopping by and as always…..

Have a Stampinglee Food Day!

Party in a box is a great idea, have used it myself, what fun, getting your friends together and having your own workshop. And that shredded ribbon on the halloween card is AWESOME...
