CIA report

Nothing sinister but it's the first event for my team the WOW paperKRafters and we did a Christmas in August event this afternoon and CIA is much easier to say.

My project was Dely's hanging Christmas cracker. Step 1 tear open last year's swap I received from her & make a template from it, well put like that there was a bit of sleuthing going on, then think of something easy to embellish it with in a very short time (quick in, as 10 ladies to do the project in 40 minutes quick). Which is where punches come in. I love that lots of SU! stamps having matching punches &  Spotlight on Christmas is no exception.

Stamps: Spotlight on Christmas, So Swirly (wheel)
Ink: Always Artichoke, Real Red, Baja Breeze
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White
Other: Real red grosgrain ribbon, large star punch, 1" circle punch, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter

Well to the ladies that attended today I hope you had fun & we provided a bit of inspiration as dare I say it it's only 117 days to the BIG one. I'll be back later with photos of the day & some of the other projects.
