A Box of Cards

Linda and I traveled to Carolyn's house on Saturday for a one day Stampin' Up retreat. We had a lovely day and were well looked after, with refreshments throughout the day. Carolyn had made us a little goody bag decorated with a daisy and filled with a chocolate bunny and a ribbon broach. During the day we made a mini album to be decorated later, two layouts and a box of cards.
These are is the delightful gift bags with chocolate and brooch.

Our kit contained items from the gorgeous Springtime Vintage collection of papers and accessories, along with peals, twine and lots of cardstock in coordinating colours. Look at the lovely bag of buttons and the reel of seam binding ribbon! Although Carolyn taught us she had thoughtfully put together detailed instructions and these were bound in a folder, which means we will be able to make things again without difficulty and with all the measurements.

Here we are working away on one of the projects.

Here is the box and contents of six cards we made in the afternoon.
