Spring Fling Anyone?

Unless you live in Arizona, and I do believe Spring has been flung and summer is here...ugh! It was 98 degrees when I got in my truck after Spring Fling today...holy moly!

Anyway now that our group event Spring Fling is over, I can show you the projects that we did.  Some I am sure you have seen, like Jan Tinklenberg's Carousel Notes Purse and the Double Pocket Bag by Jenn Diercks  We just modified them slightly for our event.

I will be having a repeat Spring Fling at my home on June 22, and you will be making the exact same projects, so let me know if you are interested.  Cost of the event is $50.00. You will need to let me know by May 29th so I can order supplies. Holler if you need more information.

Everyone had fun, and we had almost 50 signed up for the event, so it was a great crowd.

Here is a group shot of all the projects.

Everyone received a pack of Afternoon Tea Designer Paper, a spool of Chocolate Twill, a pack of Carousel Notes and The Love Birds Rub-Ons, plus all the supplies needed to complete the 7 projects.

This accordion book was based on the make-n-take we did while I was on the cruise to Bermuda. We just changed it to work for our day.

This is what the accordion book looks like on the inside, great to give as a brag book.

These were two little love notes, and we put them inside the Double Pocket Bag.

This was the little scallop note, and I actually posted it on my blog a few days ago...hee!hee! No one knew it was part of their Spring Fling projects!

This is my BFF Tracy's Triangle May Day Basket, this is such a neat and simple little basket, and the double sided background paper makes it even more cuter.

This is the Carousel Notes Purse.  This is such an amazing project, and my hat goes off to Jan for figuring it out, and posting an awesome tutorial.

We altered it just slightly, we did use the rub-ons and a few extra pieces of cardstock.  I am hoping we keep the Carousel Notes in the new catalog, of course in new colors!

This was the first project of the day, and it went pretty quick, it was fun to see the bottles at the end of the day, you could tell the definite choc-o-holics as their bottles were almost empty of M&M's. We ordered the bottles from Specialty Bottle Company.







I want to say a quick thank you to Susanna over at Card of the Week, she gave my baby scrapbook pages a shout out over on her blog ...thanks so much Susanna!


I hope you have all have enjoyed looking at the Spring Fling make-n-takes, have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping in!
