Fall Workshop at Joan's Gardens

Happy Monday Everyone!  
As I mentioned last week, I have been MIA due to being away from home and attending the Fall Workshop  held at Joan's Gardens in North Liberty, Indiana!  WHAT A FABULOUS TIME I HAD!!!   I go out a couple days early to spend a little extra time with Joan ... and help her get things ready for the workshops.  This time she had smaller classes over a 3 day weekend ... and WOW what amazing techniques & products Joan shared with us.

Here is the FRIDAY group of ladies for the workshop (which I attended) ...

 and here is the SATURDAY group of ladies.

I headed back to Ohio before the Sunday group arrived so I do not have a photo of those ladies to share with you ... but I'm sure they had just as great a time as we all did.

Here are the projects we created.  Mine are NOT perfect mind you ... but with these samples I can work on perfecting the techniques used and the next cards will be much better.  To see the EXACT cards we were to create, I'm sure Joan will have photos posted early this week. We did THREE projects ...

Some of the products used were Tim Holtz dies & inks, LaBlanche stamps & Specialty Stamping paper, Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Clearly for Art Modeling Film & Stamps,  Cheery Lynn dies, Marianne embossing folders, Penny Black stamp and Organza fabric.  Many of the products used aren't listed on Joan's blog yet ... but they will be this week and available for you to purchase.  Be sure to check throughout the week to see ALL the new products & papers Joan has arriving that were ordered from CHA back in July!  There are some AWESOME things you won't want to miss having for yourself!

Joan & Selma really outdid themselves on these FABULOUS creations/techniques and I am SO GLAD I was able to attend this workshop!!  Thanks Joan ... hope to be there for the October workshop too!

Okay ... now to get all my STUFF put back where it belongs in my crafting cave and catch up on DT commitments!  Catch you all later ... hope you have a wonderful day!!!
