Jayne's Weekend Workshop - Part 2

I started the second day of Jayne's weekend workshop with a swim first thing in the morning which was a nice way to start the day. 

Day Two was going to see us make two of the remaining projects. Each group had voted on the previous evening to see which two of the remaining three projects that we were going to complete as we would not be able to complete all three.  Our group had decided to make the gift box and the Calendar. 

As both groups had chosen to make the gift box, this was done together with both groups and the tea lights were supplied to us by Jayne to complete the box.  The gift box holds 6 tea lights and it could be used to put chocolates in instead of tea lights.  

It was made with Kraft card and the use of the Hougie Board and Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornaments.  Acetate was used to make the window and also a compartment on the left side to hold a tag, which was a nice idea.  It also had a tab on the side of the box which was pulled to undo the box and put it what you wanted.  As it was in red and white, this was not my favourite project of the weekend though.
The next project was the calendar and this was one project that I really liked. It was mounted onto Kraft card that had been distressed to look like wood.  The focal point was made using Jayne's Winter Foliage stamps and distress inks.  The only extra stamp that was used was Inkylicious Worn paint stamp which was used to create the wooden effect in the background.  I just loved the look of this project and although I am not really into the folk art look – this did it for me.

It was a great weekend and the company was really great.  The hotel and staff were great which just added to the weekend.  Hopefully this is the first of many more crafty weekends with Jayne and Helene.
