Last Saturday I attended the Stampin’ Up! Brisbane Regional training event with some of the girls in my team and a few of my customers. My upline, Tracy was also able to attend. It was a great day of catching up, swapping, sharing, learning and laughs!!! This is why I love Stampin’ Up! They are such a generous business!! They had door prizes during the day (I didn’t win one but one of my team members did, Yay Carolyn!!) and gave everyone who attended a container of Champagne glitter glass. Gorgeous stuff!!!
One of the best parts of any Stampin’ Up! event, is the swapping!!! Generally, you make a card front, include a project recipe and make lots of them. I don’t enjoy making 50 of the same thing, so I usually do a couple of different cards. This year, I did two card fronts and a bookmark.
I cased this one from another SU demonstrator, Elizabeth Dyson.
