Motivated to create!

After attending a great workshop hosted by Sanzi in Auckland, I felt motivated to create again and after popping into a few of the forums and blogs I haven't been looking at lately, found some more inspiration.

This card was motivated by the Card Patterns Sketch 114. The die cuts were from the new Spellbinders dies I bought while in Auckland and the flower is from the stash that was in the goodie bag from the workshop.

I ran the red trim through the swiss dots folder on the Cuttlebug, stamped the flower with a word stamp and added a large crystal that I coloured with alcohol ink and covered with kindiglitz.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.

Goodie Bag stash

This is the stash I got in the goodie bag. It included 2 Cricut Lite cartridges as well as a large pack of paper and card. I also won a Cricut Tool set and a magazine.

This is the stash I bought

At the workshop, Sanzi had a large number of accessories for sale and I bought several Spellbinders Die sets as well as some Tim Holtz Alterations dies. Altogether a very nice amount of stuff to bring home and play with!

These are some of the things we did at the workshop. It includes cards made with:
  • acetate, 
  • printed papers done on the Cricut Imagine
  • pop- up cut with a die
  • die cut card (grand spellbinders die)
  • cut-outs using the Cricut Gypsy
  • Cuttlebug embossing folders and inks.
We also used the Yudo Card Shop for screen printing an image (on the box).
It was a very well organised workshop and the presenters were amazing! Thanks Sanzi!
