~ Farewell to Stephanie

We were surprised to find out last week that our newest analyst was leaving us this week.  To help make her farewell luncheon a little more special, I made candy boxes to put at each place setting at the restaurant.  She loves purple so I made purple tags using twine from The Twinery – so cute!

~ Greeting Card Gift Set & Minibook Teaser

This weekend I made a set of six cards for a co-worker as part of a going away present.  She expressed interest in the color orange at the last card class I taught at work so there is a bit of orange in both the cards and the envelopes.  I also made a small pockets and tags Bind-it-All minibook that I’ll show a sneak peek of below.  Please come back another day to see a full post on the minibook sometime next month or so. =)

~ Valentine’s Day Card Class

Here are the photos from my first class of the year!  Valentine’s Day tends to be a big draw for my office!

I kept the design of the card simple but provided a lot of paper and embellishment options for each of the participants to design their own unique projects.  To ensure that the attention would be paid to putting the projects together instead of the mechanics of prepping the different pieces, I pre-cut/creased all of the paper and pre-assembled ribbon bundles.

Just finished making a sample card for my first class at work since moving to our newly renovated spaces.  It will be nice to teach another class as it has been months since the last one!  I got the idea for this card from a similar one I saw at Queen’s Ink at Savage Mill.  This is also my first project using Timeless Twine product.  So cute!
