CGW 2009 Beach Projects

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, October 16, 2009
Hi there! CGW (Crafty Girlz Weekend) 2009 is all done... so sad! It was a blast!

I've got some time this afternoon, so I can finally upload some photos and share with you some of what we did!

I'll start with my project: This is a Tri-Fold Shutter Card with the Fan Fold Flower. Directions and Tutorials from Splitcoast Stampers. This was my sample.
And this is the one that I made during the weekend. Everyone's cards were different colors, as I took an assortment of patterned paper and cardstock to use. They were all so pretty! We also discovered that the flower could be turned into a fan, which was fun!Charlene taught us how to make these adorable bottlecap magnets! Surprising how pretty a bottlecap can be!Louise shared this cute teabag flowerpot. So easy to do, and so much fun!
Paulette brought some fun felt and felting tools and we each made these adorable purses! I think I've found a new craft - this was so much fun! Here are all of our purses:This is one that I made for Emily:And this is mine:Liz had some wheat sent over from Germany and taught us how to do wheat weaved stars. I pasted mine onto a card front.Kim taught us how to make the Handmade soaps that she had given away at her wedding in August. Her wedding soaps were blue, I chose green and the pink one was one that Mom had made for Emily.Lynda brought some styrofoam ornaments and taught us how to created a faux-quilted christmas ornament. We each got to a small and a large ornament.I know there is one project missing.... I am saving the project that Cauleen (my Mommy) brought, as it is for my Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog Design Team post this Sunday. So check back on Sunday to see it!

Here we all are! In the back: Cauleen, Charlene, Lynda, Paulette, Louise, Liz & In the front: Me and my Bestest Friend, Kim!
It was a wonderful weekend! And I can't wait for CGW 2010, we already have the beach house reserved!
