We returned to the Salt Palace convention center to work on our Make & Take projects. The first one I worked on totally frustrated me, I just couldn't get it right. My friend, Buffy, did it correctly and posted hers on her blog:
I made the flower and attempted twice to make the banner; I brought it home incomplete. I tried the banner again two more times last night, and I tore the flower completely apart and put it completely back together, but I still didn't like any of it. And, I can't figure out what purpose the pouch might serve. So, I put the flower in a vase and the banner on a card:
stamp set - Affection Collection; ink - Daffodil Delight, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals; card stock - Daffodil Delight, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Whisper White; Big Shot with Delicate Designs textured impressions embossing folder; Basic Rhinestones
Since I opted not to use More Mustard for the wings (the way the instructions and sample were done), I believe my colors fit the current Play Date Cafe challenge - bonus!
stamp sets - Daydream Medallions, Affection Collection; Stampin' Around jumbo wheel - Daydream; ink - Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Midnight Muse, More Mustard, Primrose Petals, Versamark; card stock - More Mustard, Primrose Petals, Whisper White; Big Shot with Floral Frames Framelits, linen thread, Vintage Faceted designer buttons, Basic Rhinestones, Primrose Petals 3/8" stitched satin ribbon, glue dots, kraft gift boxes, square envelopes
I've barely started to tell you about the first day, and there were three wonderful days full of products, samples, demonstrations, sessions, friends, food - more than I can ever share! I'll tell you more, though, I promise.
Before I log off so that I can get some sleep, I want to brag a little bit about the golden Postage Due card I posted just before convention - the Less is More team, Mandi and Chrissie, selected it as a Showcase card!
