Musical Swap


Hi,


I participated in a musical swap about two weeks ago.
The assignment was to make an item + a card that the main theme is music.
I had some ideas at the begining, but finally I decided to make a CD case. It is a small and usefull item. I wanted it to be for the top 10 CD's of the reciever.
Since it is the first serious swap I'm participating, I wanted everything to match. For me it means that all papers will be from the same collection. I picked a beautiful collection of Basic Grey.
Here are the pictures (not necessarily by the order):


This is the front










And this is the card I made - not musical, but from the same materials (the name of the reciever is Lilach):


Let me know what you think.

Have a great weekend!!

Another workshop at my workplace

Hi all!
 I wanted to tell you about the second round of employees that came to my workshop. It happend this week on Sunday (July 25th) afternoon. This time there were 11 (!!!) people (one of them was a 9 year old child, and I also had one man in this group). We had a great time!
I taught some techniques but each one did something of his own - which was great.
This time I didn't give them a full kit so each one took what he liked the most.


So, stop with the talking... Here are the pictures:







This was made by the 9 year old child :-)






What do you think?

My first workshop... at my workplace!

Hi all,


First - my family vacation in Crete was a lot of fun... the sun, the blue (clean) sea... really nice. Crete is beautiful. I recommend.


Now for this post main issue - my first workshop!!!
I work for a hi-tech company, and the HR had this great initiative of employees share their hobbies with other employees. I told the HR manager that I'm doing scrapbooking in my free time, and she said - "ok, you can do a workshop for the employees". I said OK. It's voluntarily of course...

So, it finaly happend!

Since it was the first time I ever taught scrapbooking, I was a little excited. I prepared some nice kits for the participants and even a PowerPoint presentation to show some scrapbooking history.

There were 5 participants and me. I showed them some techniques, and they made some really beautiful stuff. We used cardboard for the basis and some beautiful K&Company papers. I also gave them some blings, paper flowers and brads. I brought some Cuttlebug cuts that Hagar helped me to cut (THANK YOU!!!!).
Here are some of the results:







I also got some tips from Kerenushi from the commune in Tapuz.

On July 25th there will be another session for the ones who couldn't make on the 12th... Great!
