Charolotte Harding

Next up was Charlotte Harding, the Training and Events Facilitator for Europe. She showed us some really cool ideas using the products in the European Stampin' Up! Catalog.

First she showed us this adorable little tag book made out of a piece of 12x12 cardstock and small pieces of DSP. Inside there were spots for wish lists, card lists, and other useful information for Christmas. I realize the pictures are faded out, but you should still be able to see how cute these projects are!

This project uses the Boho Blossom Punch, a styrofoam cone, and about a million pins! All you do is punch flowers until you can't punch any more, and pin them all over the cone. Isn't it amazing?Charlotte also showed us how to do One Sheet wonders. This template can be used to fill an entire 5x5 Art Journal with one piece of DSP. Unfortunately it is in CM, but thats what conversion charts are for! (Oh, by the way, did you know that the European Paper trimmer has both inches and cm on it? We used one during the Make N Take session....boy was I confused!)
This final project that Charlotte showed was the one that got us the most excited. She took this adorable black and white photo and sprayed it with a Matte Adhesive that is safe for photos.
She then began to use daubers dipped in our pretty pastels to color in the Violets the girl is holding.
And here is the finished product! We oohed and ahhed. This was so cool, and now we don't have to worry about what the colors in our photos are. We can make them match every one of our Card stocks for perfect pages every time!
