Pop Up Blossoms, Prepping for a workshop, A peek into my craft room, and Monday's Fun Day winner...

I had posted this card in my last post but didn't show you what was inside it.
I had designed it for one of my Japanese workshops.

It's really pretty with the new Haiku DSP and Riding Hood Red / Chocolate Chip / Old Olive combo. The inside features a spiral pop-up that opens sideways instead of the traditional "up and down" motion.

I also made this little box and notecard set for one of my Japanese workshop regulars who needed some inspiration with the stamp set.

I received a request to post the folder system that I use when I teach at Memories Live On, on my blog. I used it today for my evening Hostess Club Workshop since I wasn't sure if I was going to have 3 or 7 ladies coming over. It's an idea that I borrowed from Julie Ebersole when I was up in Sacramento a few months ago. Julie was there teaching a couple of A muse-a-Palooza classes at The Paper Garden. She is such a sweetie and so full of energy! Her folders inspired me to make my own when I first got my job teaching at MLO. Thank you, Julie!

Great cards! Wish I lived in driving distance! :)My favorite chocolate is See's Scotchmallows. Can you believe I did not make it to the store when we were out this summer? I know, it is a horrible fact! I did succomb to the kiosk in the SFO airport however so I could get my fix...sad, sad, sad. :)

Well now, I think this Monday's Fun Day is going overseas! lol!

You can't see me, but I am totally doing the Happy Dance right now! Thanks SO MUCH!!

Yes, I am in Japan, but the military takes the mail right up the road from you...in Alameda. So my zip code is actually there in the Bay Area! Pretty cool.

I love seeing people's craft rooms as well. I love your turning display rack! You have a virtual store, don't you! :)

Very, very cool folder project for your classes. How organized! I love the box, too. I'm not totally into Always (I know it's popular but, just not quite my thing.) But, these projects are awesome!

Hugs,

Hi Jane,

What a fabulous idea for presenting card "packets" at a workshop. Could you maybe post some more details about the folders and how they're put together?

That's the best idea on that that I've seen so far!! Thanks!
