Training Day

Hi - I'm back!
Just returned from a fabulous week of lying in the sun - and I feel
very relaxed and refreshed.
So now it's back to it.
First day back from my holiday was Training Day with the other
Stampin' Up! demonstrators in our team lead of course by
our "mummy"Julie. We had a great day with lots of fun and laughter
and some hard work!
The first thing we did was "swaps".
This is the swap I made - I'll show you the ones I
got in return next time.

Our first crafting bit was to make this lovely bag.
I did the demonstration!!!
Good job I was still relaxed from my holiday!
It went very well and the rest of the team were
very kind to me - thanks girls.
It was great meeting you all - some for the first time.

Well that's all for now as that pile of ironing will not
miraculously disappear on it's own!

Sale-a-bration Card Class

Yesterday I spent a super morning with the ladies of Eldwick Craft Club.
We made 4 cards - they thought I was a hard task master!!!
Each card is made using a stamp set which is free during
SALE-A-BRATION (30.12.10 to 28.02.11)
when you spend £45.00!

The first 2 cards where identical to those I made at my recent
Training Session with Julie, my Stampin' Up! "Mummy"!!!
All 4 cards use card from the Getting Started Card Pack and
the Brights Patterned DSP Stack.
We used Marker Pens instead of ink pads and one of the large punches.
During Sale-a-bration I have put these items together to make
the Special Product Offer - details down the right hand side of my blog.
The first 3 cards are made using the Punch Bunch Stamp Set
and the final one is made using the Bliss Stamp Set.

Tomorrow I will show the 2 cards we made at Monday's card class

Baby Tees

Here's a quick card I made last week requested by my
step-daughter-in-law for her friend who had just had a little girl.
I used Concord Crush and Pretty in Pink with a paper
from Lap of Luxury along with the jumbo wheel Baby Tees
and the Scallop Trim Border punch.

Here is the inside using the Scallop Trim Corner punch.

That's all for now
