Valentine's Day Sale and demo at Lasting Impression

Aside from the big sale of Prima flowers last Saturday (all Prima flowers at 50% off!), we had a mini workshop in the afternoon. We made a small Valentine's day decor, using Shrink film for one of the embellishments, the ATB Paper Tagger and the 3-d Crystal Lacquer. The idea was lifted from a project made in Handmade It Scrapbook Trends magazine, although the design and the techniques used in the project were decided by Maybelle and me.

The key charm was attached using the ATB paper tagger. Stamps used are from Autumn Leaves' Stampology

The timepiece was made using shrink plastic. We stamped an image onto the plastic using Stazon and heat embossed it. It's a bit difficult to manage when you use a heat embossing gun, a good alternative is to use an oven toaster. The beads were secured using double sided tape. The stamped swirls were embossed using SAKURA 3-d Crystal Lacquer, which is similar to glossy accents and diamond glaze but dries up faster and has a finer tip.
The wings were colored using Glimmer Mist (Candy Apple Red)
Ribbons were attached on top so the decor could be hanged anywhere in the house

The above 2 pictures are made by Donna and Cookie who decided to use the paper tagger and the extra chipboard and charms to accentuate the ribbon.
Here's the back portion of my project
Here are the lovely versions of the girls who joined the workshop. Thanks girls for joining! Maybelle also did a workshop on the small candy treats for hubbies but unfortunatelt we weren't able to take photos. Girls, if you have taken photos, papost naman!
