This is a long post, so grab a coffee and enjoy! First off, this weekend has been AMAZING!!!! It was Regionals for Stampin' Up! We were so fortunate to have Dale (from Head Office in Calgary), Linda, Lori and Shannon from Utah and so many other Stampin' Up! members come here to London!
To start the weekend I hosted a demonstrator night which was so much fun! 60 ladies got together, we ate, crafted, chatted and just had fun! It was a great way to get to meet so many of you! I wish I had more time to chat with you but I loved learning so much from so many of you, so thank you! I hope you choose to keep in touch. I was also spoiled rotten by so many fine demonstrators that shared their talent and projects with me over the course of the weekend....yes, I'll be sharing those projects! I will also be sharing the make and take projects we did on Friday night with you this week.
Now, today was the BIG event! My FABULOUS team members, Simply Stars(see the first photo....isn't that a GREAT looking bunch of ladies?!?!), gathered bright and early (apparently too early for me as I slept in and Shannon had to call to wake me up.....) so we could all come in together! For the most part the 30 of us sat together and enjoyed such a fun day! We had make and take projects that are amazing (but I'll be honest, I didn't make one....yet!), great wow demonstrations from local demos, a yummy lunch, business tips and of course amazing projects from SU! Thank you ladies for making this so amazing! Let me explain the second photo to you....that's my wonderful friend Barb! She is amazingly talented at stamping but is an even better friend. As much as I love her, we're not holding hands or fighting over the coffee....I'm really not sure what's going on here!
I was quite honoured when Lori called me last week asking if I would do a wow presentation. After chatting with her for a few minutes I knew right away what I could demonstrate....punched animals! So, this is what I showed today.
I have to say that the little bums made me quite happy! I also demonstrated quickly how to make your own envelopes to size and a little barn box (that I didn't take a picture of!!!) I'll just have to make another one!
Some of you were asking about my punch class. The current class I have going on, Simply Punches One, is $20 for 20 videos, 20 PDFs, 20 photos and lots of fun! If you're interested in signing up, the online classroom will be open until the end of June. You are able to print off the typed instructions and photos to use forever!
