So, on Tuesday I hosted my first ever workshop. It wasn’t too complicated as we used the lovely ‘Hugs from Shelli’ Paper Pumpkin kit, which had everything you needed to make 12 lovely cards.

10 lovely ladies joined me at my home ( and they had the bonus of seeing my much talked about extension and new kitchen), and we had 2 hrs of crafting fun.

As I mentioned, the kit is designed to make 12 cards, 3 each of 4 designs, and on the afternoon that’s what we set out to make.

But as some had commented that the ‘notecard’ sizes were small compared to what they normally made, I displayed an assortment of cards that I had made, making the cards into larger cards, one of which was almost C5 size.

These are the designs that came with the kit…..

And these are some of the ones I made as alternatives.

Not sure if they will ever release a Paper Pumpkin Kit again in the UK, but I feel another workshop may be needed – whether they do or not!

What a fab time I had…. think everyone who attended did too.

Please share this…
