Team Training

I have had a very busy but enjoyable weekend spending all day on Saturday at my lovely Stampin' Up! Mummy's (Jules) first all day training event!!  We all had a great time chatting swapping and of course crafting - I will show the projsects we made tomorrow!! 

One of the best things about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is the friendship and support from all of the team members and the beautiful swaps we share to inspire each other.  We used "Love" as the theme for our swaps, this is my card.

I have used Basic Black card with some of the 12x12 Neutrals paper stack papers again in basic Black with lots of gorgeous Very Vanilla satin ribbon, ruffled to give a luxurious look to the card.  I have used the Artistic Etchings stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink, punched and layered with a sparkly rhinestone.

Some of us also took part in a card candy swap, making a variety of toppers using a stamp set and punches. I have recieved some beautiful card candy swaps,  andwill post some pictures during the week. This is my set of card candy.

I have used A Good Egg stamp set, as I will be using this set in my classes soon!!  The images are so cute, I have added dazzling diamonds glitter to them for extra sparkle and some pearls as they complement the subltle colours perfectly.  I have used a lot of my punches to make this set and the flowers remind me of  brightly coloured daffodils swaying in the breeze!  The colours are Pear Pizzaz, Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait and Daffodil Delight. 

We had a great day at Jule's training day then some of us went out for tea afterwards, I had travelled down with my lovely downline Julie and we stayed over rather than driving home late at night!

Last night I went to Margarets house to do a workshop for her and her friends. They are a lovely group and although most of them didnt craft they enjoyed their make and take project I had designed for them as a taster of what Stampin' Up! is all about.  I know many of the ladies will be looking forward to recieving their new crafty stash soon!!  Thank you Margaret for being a wonderful hostess and I hope you enjoyed the rest of  the evening with your friends.

If you would like me to demonstrate at a work shop in your home and live in North Yorkshire/Tees Valley area then why not get in touch and set a date!!
