Stationer's Box Workshop

I had a blast teaching the two-part Stationer's Box Workshop. The idea was to spend the first portion experimenting with our new line of Neon Dabbers and Neon Ink Pads with the ultimate goal of making card panels for the nifty handmade gift box we'd make in round two.

How rare it is to have time to simply experiment and play! And play, we did. 

Results of just some of my play time . . . 

Then, making the gift box provided a practical way to showcase our creativity. I love how the materials for this project come from sheets of paper measuring 12" or smaller, making it very duplicatable with items from your stash. Even though the window in the box was a bit of a project, it gives it such a nice finishing touch.

Jac really "heard me" when I explained what I was looking for on the sheet of unmounted stamps we designed for this workshop. The images and colors complemented so well. We call it "Neon Doodles." The solid circles all fit into the open design circles perfectly. Love them!

Workshop videos for the Retreat-in-a-box folks air after the chat tonight. Can't wait to have you join us!

Do some doodling today!
