Workshops & Projects Galore!

Are you ready for a mega post.... as you all know the last weeks have been very 'stressful' for the Embellees Team, so it is time to make up for lost time and provide updates on both of our 'Have You Caught the Bug - Cuttlebug' and our 'What Is Old Is New Again' Workshops.  Lots of 'eye candy' to follow with pics of our projects and some of the wonderful things we have been 'playing' with and producing.

So grab a 'cuppa' and we will get started.....

What is old is new again Workshop
Last Sunday (7 November 2010) saw us host the last of our 2010 Workshops and what a great day it was.  Thank you to all the lovely ladies who attended and shared their 'stash' and 'outed' their bad habits and admitted to more than a few episodes of 'buyers remorse'.  It was such a great laugh seeing some of those early pages, the very dated papers (yeh to Kerry S who even admitted to searching her papers down while in England... ooohh we love a dedicated scrapper who will travel for the right piece of paper and then keep it in the stash for many a year).

Check out our Workshop Photos tab above for all the great pics of the gorgeous mini-books we made by re purposing the 'oldest' Golden Books we could find.  It was so much fun getting participants to 'just go with the flow' and embrace the meaning of an 'ecclectic' album... thank you ladies your books looked great and we hope all your friends and family will love them to bits!

Cuttlebug Workshop
It was full house on 17 October with 25 ladies all embossing, die cutting, inking, painting and spending up big on extras now they had 'Caught the Bug'.  Yes, no one was leaving without a new found love of their 'Bug' or 'BigShot'.  We finished up a lovely canvas and a techniques album that had us cutting and embossing materials that were never thought of.  We have received so many emails in the last month from participants 'raving' about the things they are doing and how much they are enjoying all the extras they learnt how to do.

Check out the Workshop Photos Tab above to see all the great photos from our day. 

Here is the additional layout that Miss Lisa did using our 'kit packaging' - yes for those that come along to one of our Workshop it has become a 'staple' that we try where possible to use our kit packaging 'repurposed' to produce a layout after the event.... it really tests the Embellees Team once they start conceptualising what the Workshop Kits will be like and then how to make the packaging different each time so that a layout becomes the end result.

Just love the use of what was our name tags on the day - the gorgeous Stampin Up 'Top Note' die that Miss Lisa made using strips of 'scraps'. 

This is pic of the canvas that our participants completed (after their techniques album) - this helped bring a lot of the different techniques learnt on the day together in one beautiful project.
