Creativation Cards

It seems like Creativation is already a distant memory, but I wanted to do a post showing some of things I made in the classes I took at the show.  There are some that are missing as they were unfit to be shown.

I have sorted them in my head into “must haves”, “Wish list cute”  “cute but not for me” and “unfit (you won’t see these as the garbage man has already erased them from my life)”.  You can decide which is which.

Here they are:

Sometimes it pays to go outside your comfort zone.  I was wandering around Creativation when a nice lady walked up to me and invited me to a Make and Take at the Tombow booth.  “What are we makin and takin?” I ask.  “Brush Lettering” she says.  Well, if you lined up all things that I am not good at, brush lettering would be at the top of the list, so I declined.  As I was walking by the table , the lady noted again that there was just one spot left………..for me.  So I sat down, made the most horrendous attempt at brush lettering and proceeded to win the grand prize in the giveaway.  Sometimes it just pays to humiliate oneself!

I walked away with an Advanced Set of Brush Lettering Pens AND their brand new Planner book.  Woo Hoo!

I cannot post my Brush Lettering entry as I deliberately left it on the table.  It truly would be total humiliation for me to post it, but I will post the cards I made in the Waffle Flower workshop.  There are some great stamps coming out from Waffle Flower.  The one I am most excited about is a layering stamp for making marbled backgrounds.  Included with the workshop was the stampset with the deer on it entitled Wild and Free.

Here they are:

Coffee Lovers Bloghop Day 5

Sometimes the best ideas come when you think you have no idea at all.  Such was the case today.

I had a new little stamp set from Waffle Flower that was comprised of a number of tiny little drinks. I think it is meant for planners, and the only planning I ever do is to try and get dressed by noon. Nevertheless, it caught my eye, and I wanted to make a card for the blog with it.

Anyway, I think the result is cute and I also got to use one of the new mini sized Action Wobblers behind the Octopus.
