Morning lovelies and how are you?
The last few weeks have been amazing, I’ve packed so much in and seen so many of you. Its been great.
So what have I been up to?
There’s been lots going on here …….. But first …. Do you love my new logo? Don’t you think it looks just like peonies? I love it. Thank you to the lovely Catherine for working so hard.
Fat Paper and my Road Trip
I was lucky enough and very honoured to be asked to give a MAX and WOW presentation at the Stampin Up! Regional event in Telford last weekend. This is a day where demonstrators (hobby and business alike) get together, play with new products, get creative and also do a little bit of training. Its an awesome event and one I would highly recommend.
Anyway I received the phone call back in March, from the lovely Paula Gorry, asking if I would take part in the event. Astounded and shocked, but highly delighted I said yes. I was really lucky I was being partnered by my lovely friend Mikaela Titheridge. Then the nerves kicked in ………….. what if I fluffed my lines, what if my demonstration pieces weren’t like ……….. you know the kind of things.
So in April my Kit arrived. All new products from the new 2015/16 Catalogue. I was given the Bohemian Suite of products.
My first thought ……………… its all straight lines, I can’t do this, but I love the colours in the new DSP. As I started to play I fell completely in love with this suite of products. Its just so gorgeous, from the embossing folders to the washi tape, its just so lovely. I came up with a box, eight different cards and my take on the box in a bag, that everyone is currently making. I even managed to make flowers from diamond shapes in the stamps.
So the big weekend arrived, and the event began. On Friday I got to spend some amazing time with some of my downline and also with my upline and other demonstrators. The road trip started early Friday, alongside two of my downline. It was great fun, and we didn’t stop chatting the whole way. Afternoon Tea, Steak Dinners and lots of laughs were just some of the highlights.
Saturday morning arrived along with 350 demonstrators all every excited, and keen to see what everyone on the Design Team had made. There were lots of gorgeous amazing makes and some great presentations by other Demonstrators.
The day whizzed by and soon it was my turn. I was partnering with the lovely Mikaela Titheridge. We introduced ourselves and so it began. All went well until I tried to say “flat” paper. It came out FAT, not just once but twice. Oh well, it gave everyone a huge giggle. Me included.
Here’s my first four cards and their little holder, made from “fat” paper. I’ll show you the rest on Saturday.
