Compact Memories Workshop Day

Hi bloggers, well today has been another amazing workshop day and I swear they get better each time we do one with everyone learning more and more techniques and bringing their own unique creativeness to the table.

To remind you all, today we were making a compact memory album using vintage make-up compacts and as usual they all turned out amazing. Featured above is mum's compact she finished this week before the workshop so I will share a few photos of the inside of mum's compact before revealing everyone's hard work today. If you're reading to get inspired for your own compact project, make yourself a cuppa now and sit back, relax and soak up the creative magic.

The first to finish their compacts were Pauline and Cathy who were both going to add photos afterwards. However this shows how you could give this as a present and let the recipient add their own photos. Great gift idea!

The next compact is Lynne's, who really made good use of all the techniques we taught that day. So pretty and vintage.

 Jen was the next to finish and I think her compact truly captured the vintage theme, check out the photo on the mirror!

Andrea's fab and colourful album was the next to be completed.

 Heidi's compact album is a lovely girly chic album ready to add photos to when she gets home.

Elle's fabulous quirky album makes great use of all the space in the album and makes a great display piece.

Aileen was new to our classes today and new to paper crafting. We think she did amazingly well and created a great keepsake.

Wow, what amazing creations! The ladies today were also lucky to not only make a compact but a fabric cuff. Check out the great photos below of all our cuffs.

All in all a fantastic day and the sunshine did come out just in time for lunch in the garden. A few photos below summarise the day and what you can expect from a Vintage Follie workshop.

I hope this post has set your creative juices flowing for the last day of the weekend to get in that craft room and create.

I will be posting shortly new workshops and dates and hopefully more posts in general!
