Flight of the Butterfly Set

Is there anything more exciting than opening up that fun box that the big brown truck drops off??? I don't think so!!! Got my club order in yesterday, and in it was my newly ordered Flight of the Butterfly set. I had so much fun creating this little set with it. I made a card with matching envie, bookmark and pen. These projects are for a workshop I have scheduled for next week. I hold classes, and run a full club, but have never done a workshop outside of my home. I am nervous that I will leave and forget something vital, or something silly like that! So, planning for this is much different than my clubs, classes, etc. These are non/new stampers. That means I can't turn to my love of techniques, I had to keep this clean and simple, and showcase my favorite SU products. For me that is our punches, our paper, our ink, and our stamp sets. I chose to use only one set. I am hoping possible future stampers will see how much you can acheive with a small selection of supplies. I kept it all the same color to make a little Thank You set for everyone to have on hand. The THANK YOU on the blue strip on the card is from All Holidays, I tried to incorporate the thanks sentiment from FOTB, but it wouldn't fit where I wanted it.

What do you all think about this as a workshop project? Never having planned for something outside of my club, I was unsure how much/little to plan to make, etc. Thanks for any comments on this one!

SU Cardstock in Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, and Kiwi Kiss.
Ink is Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss.
Punches -- Corner Rounder (it's CM,...shhh), Scallop Circle, Round Tab, 1 3/8 Circle, Handheld 1/16 for brads, Handheld rectangle for bookmark ribbon.
Stamps - SU Flight of the Butterfly (small Thank You from All Holidays)
Accessories -- Choc Chip Grosgrain ribbon, Silver brads, Dimensionals, Pentel RSVP Pen (filled with stamped printer paper, it rolls so much easier than CS), oh and a regular office stapler to really hold on that tab on the bookmark, as the ribbon is knotted under there.

Let me know what you think about this one. I think it turned out great, but how is it for a workshop?


  1. wow!!! I love all of this, and your workshop ladies are sure to love it too. It looks pretty reasonable for a workshop because it's basic stamping. I usually do two make and takes, but I think the pen/envelope are quick and easy and a great add-on. Good luck at your first workshop!!!

  2. WOW I have this set coming in next week!!! What a beautiful card and bookmark!


  3. I think they are great. I like how you used one set and kept it clean and simple. I think people who are new to stamping will appreciate how you have shown the versatility of one set. I like how you went with the Thank You theme. I'm sorry I've never hosted a workshop so I can't advise, but I would LOVE to attend this one!

  4. Wow.. are these ever cute...not to worry from the look of all your cards you must be a amazing teacher, just move close to me so I can take your classes too... I can't wait to hear how it all goes for you, I will cross my fingers and toes that you remember everything...nothing left behind!!!

  5. This looks like fun for a workshop and will probably appeal to all types of people! I wish I could go!! I love the pen, by the way!

    Great colors, too!

    Have a fun time!!

  6. Wonderful Naomi!!! I think you will have an awesome workshop and really WOW them. Don't stress out about it and remember if you forget something you can substitute or just go without that item.

  7. Very, very cute. I think everyone will love these. I LOVE them, lol.
