I made these Christmas Tree Box Decorations to give to the Ladies and filled them with chocolates. They were very easy to make and I cased them from Brenda Quintana who had prepared a tutorial and template that could be printed onto your card to cut them out, which I did as we travelled to Perth. Also stamped the flower and cut that out as we travelled. I was going to put a star at the top, but forgot my punch.

On Saturday, Ngaire invited Odette, Lynda Winfield, Pat Carr and myself to do a Workshop presentation.
Odette instructed us on the finer details of making a Mini Scrapbook Album. I used the SU Secret Garden Simply Scrappin Kit. I have not finished detailing the pages yet as I am undecided on the size of the photo's I will use.
These are the only pages I have completed. I really loved this project and how professional it looks, thank's to Odette's direction, and a little time and effort.
Linda Winfield presented the next workshop and wowed everyone with the Polished Stone Technique. This Technique is very effective and we made two fantastic cards.
Pat Carr presented a Punch Class. It was really fun and we all loved the characters we made, they are so cute.
I presented Fancy Folds as the last Workshop. We made a Pyramid Card and a Stand alone Pop Up card. I cased the Pyramid card from Stampowl's blog and must give her credit for this fold. I made a few different Pyramid cards for the ladies to see how they could be used.
This was the card everyone made.
Stamps: In The Stars
Card: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, River Rock, SU Ginger Blossom Designer Paper

I used a paper clip to hold the cards together and did not stick the tape on the last side of the card so it could lay flat for posting as shown in this photo. If folded this way the card will fit into a C6 Medium envelope.

I found this stamp and thought it represented my blog's name to a tee, so I decided to use it as my first upload.
Stamps: Definition of a Cat by Stamp It
Card: SU Basic Grey, Black, Real Red and Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon and various SU Markers Stardust Gelly Roll Pen for some sparkle.
Accessories: 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Scallop Punch, Dimensionals, Computer for Sentiment, Basic Grey Taffetta Ribbon, Cat Paw Charms, Stardust Gelly Roll Pen, Cutter Kit, Cuttlebug EB Folder Swiss Dots.
I cut out a second cat image and mounted it on Dimensionals after I coloured it with my SU Markers to give the image some dimension. Then I used the Cutter Kit to rough up the edges of the main image. I used my computer to create the sentiment and the 1 3/8" Circle punch and the Scallop punch to cut it out. I added the SU Basic Grey Taffetta ribbon, some sparkle using the Gelly Roll pen and some cat paw charms to finish it off.
