Sara's Convention Projects

Both Sara and I promised to share our convention projects on my blog this week, so we’re starting with Sara’s. She highlighted the Simply Created Kits from the Holiday catalog, but in addition to showing the kit as it was designed to be made, she also showed alternative projects that could be made from the kits. . . those are the projects that I’m sharing here.

Her presentation also focused on how easily our demonstrators could plan an event using our Simply Created Kits or Paper Pumpkin kits. She shared a couple of slides showing what demonstrators would need to buy and provide if they planned an event with eight guests; we’re posting those as well. These kits are so great to use for these events because there’s hardly any prep—just about everything you need is in the kits.

If you’re interested in planning a Simply Created Kit event, there are videos available for each kit that walk you through what you need to do for your event. Super easy, super simple, super fun. . . you can find those videos here.

Enjoy these projects—I’ll share my convention projects in a few days!

In case you noticed some faint blue images on some of Sara's Paper Pumpkin projects, I wanted to point out that Soft Sky ink was used to stamp on some of the mini cards, and the Soft Sky reinker was mixed with alcohol in a Stampin' Spritzer and sprayed through some sticker sheet die cuts for the full size card & envelope :-)

I am LOVING the cards in the third picture.
Are they something I can recreate if I don't have paper pumpkin subscription ?

Love the use of the Thanksgiving pockets as a mini book. I loved those pockets and was trying to think how to promote them in the UK where we don't celebrate Thanksgiving. The fact is though that we all have loads to be thankful for and I am SO going to make that project. Thank you for sharing Sara and Shelli.

Shara Cochrane - the cards in the third picture are not Paper Pumpkin; they were made using the Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit in the Holiday Catalog.

How is the small spiderweb created on the wreath? I was assuming it was the middle of the one in the kit- but there is no middle there! So now I'm thinking it is folded like a rosette, but the picture doesn't really look like that if it is... So any hints would be appreciated :) I like the look of the smaller one and wanted to recreate this with my kit.

How did Sara make the smaller spider web for the wreath? I love the idea of making multiple items from the kit
