I have been doing paper crafting workshops for a long time and I have quite a system down. The first thing I do is plan it out, plan what stamps, paper, embellishments, etc that I want to use. Then I come up with an idea. I go to a lot of different sources for ideas like books, Pinterest and more. Then I create my sample. This is probably the part that takes the longest, sometimes what I have in my head and on paper just doesn't come out right and I have to start over.
The most fun is when I start putting together the kits. This picture is from a few months ago, as you can see I layout out all the pieces before putting them into their bags. I layout the base piece first and generally work from biggest to smallest pieces until they are all laid out and I can see that all kits have all their piece. Then I bag them up for my customers to make all their creations. I love doing this job!
