Join Stampin' Up TODAY

Happy Hump day everyone :)

Over the last few weeks I've had lots of people ask me why I became a demonstrator
Yes I LOVE the products and the fact that they coordinate so perfectly, I love being the 1st to know about promotions and new products, Of course there is my 20% demonstrator discount, being able to work around my family
for me the social aspect of being a Stampin' Up Demonstrator is the best thing of all.

There are opportunities like Regional Events and Convention to be able to meet up with my wider Stampin' Up family - and through these I have made lots of friends all over the world who Love Stampin' Up as much as I do
Im quite lucky in that my team of  current demonstrators live quite local to me so we can meet up for catch-ups, tea and cake - there is always cake :)
I run a monthly crop where crafters - seasoned and new -  come and create their own projects, 
I hold demonstrations and talk lots about ALL the Stampin' Up products plus 
I run monthly Stamp Parties where Stampin' Up enthusiasts come and use the Stampin' Up products

I try and cater for all crafters so hold parties during the day and in evenings
plus i will even come to your house for a party and have many repeat hostesses :)

Here is a picture of a project from a recent party

I have demonstrated the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set at many parties - It seems to be a big favorite with lots of my customers - plus I love it to :)

To welcome them I printed off lots of relevant information to get them started and placed them in a Document wallet that I decorated

Stampin Up Undefined Stamp Carving Workshop

I will admit I am a little behind with posting about this as it was a couple of weeks ago - but WOW what a fantastic party it was.
Everyone that attended received the Undefined Stamp Carving Kit and the rest was up to them :)

First they had to draw their image onto paper and transfer it onto the rubber stamp.

Then they had to carve the image using the tools provided in the kit.

Then they had to stamp th image onto the wooden block before attaching the rubber stamp.

I'm sure you will agree that these stamps are fantastic

Penny Latto

Anne Finch

Catherine Shaw

Sarah Miller

Thank you everyone that attended I hope you all enjoyed the night as much as I did.

Not local??
  you to can purchase any of my party kits as they come with full instructions which means you can join in the fun to :)

Stampin' Up - Pintrest fridays

Happy Friday everyone :)

Todays card was made after hearing some sad news relating to a friend and her family

My son (as you know) plays rugby and all the parents wanted to let her know we were thinking of her and send her some flowers so I thought Id add a card to send also.

The original card on Pintrest was made by Linda Gutierrez and can be seen Here

I have altered it slightly by using different framelits and sentiment but I really like it

Why not create your own version of this card - Id love to see what you come up with

See you again soon
