Oooops I've been a very naughty blogger. It turns out that I am in fact not superwoman and something had to give for a while. I am sorry but I am back and looking forward to sharing lots of lovely Stampin' Up! news with you all. What I love about Stampin' Up! is that it is so flexible and I can do as little or as much as I want.
I hope that everyone had an enjoyable and restful festive season. We had a quiet Christmas, just the 4 of us at home on the day itself so it was very chilled out, I did however cook 5 times as much food as was needed, I think we may still have a few bits in the cupboards :) I got a camcorder for Christmas and as soon as I have a tripod I am planning on shooting some crafty videos - a little nervous though and I hate the sound of my voice on recordings - watch this space.
Onto some crafty news... we had our team training last weekend and it was such a blast! I volunteered to make some samples for a demo booth as inspiration for the other demonstrators attending. It was my first time and I have to say thank you so much to everyone for the positive comments.
This is my booth all laid out
A little notecard set using the Scallop Envelope die to make a coordinating box. The stamp set is called Pretty Petites, I've used the coordinating punch (also a SAB freebie) and the larger curly label punch from the main catalogue. DSP is from the SAB set called Sycamore Street - I LOVE it!
This little box is similar to one shown to us at convention in November by a lovely demonstrator called Elizabeth Shannon the whole box is made from one sheet of 12x12 dsp. As above the papers are from the SAB set Sycamore Street and the ribbon is another SAB freebie, this time a bundle, 3 spools of ribbon and a pack of buttons.
Next a set of 8 notecards in an envelope style holder, I didn't get a very good picture of the holder unfortunately. The Happy Hello Simply Sent card kit is another of the 17 possible freebies you can choose from between Jan 22nd - Mar 22nd. You get 8 shaped cards, printed envelopes and all the embellishments needed, I only added a couple of strips of cardstock.
Finally, for today a big thank you to my downline Joanne. I don't yet have the feeling sentimental stamp set so I asked her to bring some samples along - she did a great job! (shame my pictures aren't great - Sorry Joanne)
