Helen’s June Workshop

Thanks to my sister Helen and her friends for a great workshop last weekend. For the hostess gift, I demonstrated this great little backpack, (SplitCoastStampers inspired). It fits a little bear or doll [or pig – see an upcoming post for the complete version].

Here is a sneak peek.

For the make and take, I must extend a very generous thanks to Sharon Field who gave me the inspiration and some extra assistance to produce this little masterpiece. This design is known as a double twisted easel card, and as you can see, we are starting on our Christmas cards early this year. The ornaments have been stamped directly with the Frost White Shimmer Paint. (IRL the faux mother of pearl combined with this gives a very shimmery effect.)

Here it is closed.

  1. I like the look of that little bag Annette – but a pig….?! The double twisted easel card looks great too and I bet you had fun making it!
