Auckland Extravaganza

On Saturday I taught at our Auckland Extravaganza Christmas Event.  Our team taught a triple panel card with Christmas Pinecones.

We taught the guests how to mask the Pinecones to get the effect of the leaves behind in the background with the Pinecones in the foreground.

Extravaganza is such a fun day for all.  Not only do you come away with five beautiful projects but you learn tips and tricks like this (the masking) throughout the day.

Decorating the envelope makes a difference too

The Year of Cheer Embellishments come in a pack of both silver and gold.  The guests either made a silver or gold version with the sequin trim to match.

There are lots of displays set up for you to get ideas and inspiration from and you are welcome to take photos of these. 

I'll share the other team's projects with you in a couple of days, including the one that my daughter thought was perfect for her teddy bear.

Supplies for our project:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Old Olive, Merry Music Speciality DSP
Inks: Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Old Olive
Stamps: Christmas Happiness, Labels to Love
Other: Layered Leaves Embossing Folder, Everyday Label Punch, Whisper White Bakers Twine
Embellishments: Mini Sequin Trim - (Silver or Gold), Year of Cheer Embellishments (Silver or Gold)
