Today's card was made at Brandy's workshop last Friday. She hosted one of my hands-on workshops where everyone makes 3 projects for $5. They get the projects free if they place at least a $35 order. The projects can either be all cards, all scrapbook pages (size is hostesses choice), or a combination of the two. Brandy chose to have 2 cards and one 6" x 6" scrapbook page. The vast majority of the ladies qualified for the free projects, so Brandy earned a lot of free stuff! If you would like to see the 6" x 6" page they made, CLICK HERE. I'll post the second card in the next few days.
As you can see, the card is a very simple one. If you look closely, you can see that the Lovely Lilac strip is embossed. I try to keep the projects simple at my in-home workshops so ladies new to stamping don't feel overwhelmed. The stamp camps and classes at my house are where I have projects that are a little more involved.

On top of the free stuff you can earn from Stampin' Up!, you'll also get the just released 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog and all of the workshop projects free! If you would rather just have a regular workshop where I demonstrate 3 projects and everyone makes one, you can do that, too. The regular workshop is free.

I made these pages for a scrapbook I've been working on for my husband, Ken. I hate to say it, but I've been working on it for over a year and a half! As my good friends and scrapbooking buddies at church know, I've been working on this to surprise Ken. With it being a surprise, I've only been able to work on it at the over-nighters and 2-day Stampin' & Scrappin' retreats that my church has. Well, I finally decided to give him the scrapbook this past Father's Day. I had all of his immediate family pictures done, so I thought it was a good time to give it to him. His father past away back in 1985, and I'm glad I decided to give it to him on Father's Day. He really enjoyed seeing pictures of his dad on Father's Day. The pictures I'm working on now are his dad's side of the family. Next will be his mom's side, and then I'll be done. It'll still take me awhile, because there are still a lot of pictures! I love old pictures, so I'm really enjoying it!
Ink: Not Quite Navy & Chocolate Chip Classic pads

It was so much fun to use! It not only looks great when you're finished, it's very easy to make. It makes a great wedding cake, too. I've even seen others use it to make a castle. There's a lot you can do with it. Right now, Stampin' Up! is one of the very few places you can purchase it.
I also used my brand new set, On a Pedestal (#113814 - p. 71). I don't know if you can tell, but I put Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the frosting part of the cake. It's nice and glittery in real life. Yes, I also used the new designer paper, Razzleberry Lemonade again. I just love the colors and designs in this new paper! I've used it so much already! I knew that it would work great with this card as well. I hope you all like it!
