The North Woods Workshop!

What a beautiful drive.
The colors were many and the weather was perfect!
For the ATV enthusiast, Iron County has the largest ATV trail system in Wisconsin, with more than 200 miles of scenic trails.

Patti provided good food, a nice place for us to work, and great friends to visit with!
These are a couple of the projects we did at Patti's workshop in Hurley, WI.

(Not all the projects are posted yet because I have another workshop coming up soon and I don't want to spoil the surprise for Jack and Gretchen! )

The "Gate Fold" card.
We used a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Cardstock and scored it at 2-1/8" and 6-3/8" to make this fold. This finished card fits into a standard invitation size envelope
(5-1/2" x 4-1/4").
I demonstrated several tools with this design. We used the Circle Cutter, the Big Shot and Embossing Folder, Punches, The Cutter Kit and we did some sanding.

"Tags Til Christmas"

This is the new set on page 24 of the Holiday Mini Catalog. It coordinates with several punches, and punches are always fun to use. Everyone had the chance to see how creative they really are with this project!
Here are the measurements for the box:

(Click on the image to enlarge it)

The first piece that is scored 1/2" on all sides is the bottom box. Then the next 3 pieces are the divider pieces inside the box.The divider pieces are folded with the "Mountain/Valley Fold" (up and down). The 5th piece is the top. Once attached at the short ends, the bottom slides into it.

A Hostess Gift!

I made this for Patti with the Big Shot and the Milk Carton Die.
The tag is a fun technique using Stampin' Dimensionals to "pop up" a part of the image. I used Pear Pizzaz and Poppy Parade Cardstock and the Studio Sketches stamp set on page 29 of the Stampin' Up! 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalog. The Big Shot and the Die are on page 204 and 209.

Thank you, Patti, for a great workshop! And special thanks to Judi and Tammy for helping me get there! We will do it again!
