First Meeting of the Stampers 30 Club

We had so much fun tonight! There is nothing better than spending the evening stamping, laughing and snacking on lots of chocolate! :) We made the covers for our Technique Flip Books. At each monthly meeting we will be learning a new technique and will add the instructions into our books. We also learned the basics of embossing and embossed a Christmas card using the Wonderous Gift set.

The fun thing about the Stampers Club is that it is much more relaxed than a normal workshop. We can take our time and each person can make their project unique and original. It was so much fun to see what each person came up with. Each project was as unique as the person who made it.

I cannot wait until our next meeting and I already have a new technique and project in mind for us to learn! See you next month!


Home Again!

I made it home from Portland Regionals with so many new ideas I scarcely know where to begin. Not a bad thing though. We spent all day learning new techniques, ideas and made all kinds of great cards. Even Shelli, the CEO and co-founder of the company was there. I was so surprised. I figured she would be way too busy to attend a regional with only 500 demonstrators. She was the emcee of the event and walked around talking to people and borrowed a few babies as well. I have attached a picture with Dennise (a local demonstrator), Shelli, Becca (my upline) and myself.

Hopefully over the next few days I will be able to post some ideas and upcoming classes (inspired by conference). In case you don't know, I just found out that I am pregnant. It has not been a pleasant pregnancy already and I am having some complications. So if I can't blog at the moment I hope you can understand. Until next time, happy stamping!


Off to Stampin' Up! Regional Conference

Well, it is bright and early this morning and I am getting myself and the kids ready to leave for the weekend of fun and stamping (well the stamping is for me). I am off for my first Stampin' Up! event and I am so excited. I can't wait to meet other demonstrators and come home with lots of new ideas and techniques. Who wouldn't be thrilled over a day of stamping bliss? :) I cannot wait to share what I have learned and pass it on with all of you!

Upcoming Events:
Stamp-A-Stack--Christmas Cards Galare!--October 19th at 6:30pm (my house)

I apologize for not getting pictures and instructions up for the boxes I made at Lisa's workshop. Hopefully once Conference is over I can settle down and get them on the blog. I also have some cards I would love to share with you all that I have made recently. So check this week for new stuff and ideas from Conference!
