Stampin' Up Quarterly training

When I signed up as a Stampin' Up Independent Demonstrator I joined a team called the Pink Ladies/Lads. This team is run by Michelle Last & every quarter she arranges a day's training in Bicester. A couple of weeks ago I went to my first one & what a fab day it was! I chose to take part in the 'swaps' whereby you make 20 cards, or similar, all the same. You swap these with others so by the end of the day you have 20 different inspiration samples! Here are the ones I made ...

Supplies used:
Stamps - Wedding Wheels, Basic Phrases
Ink pad - Baja Breeze
Papers - Designer Series Paper Patterns Stack in Baja Breeze
Punches - Modern Label, Word Window, Scallop Trim Border

And here are the swaps I came home with ...

It was a day full of inspiration & ideas & an opportunity to meet some lovely people. Oh, & lots of cake & biscuits :) We also had a wonderful project to make during the day, designed by the very talented Gill Prescott which consisted of a book box with 4 matching cards using the Botanical Gazette designer series papers. I haven't finished making the cards yet, but here is the book box ...

I enjoyed the day so much, I've already booked to go on the next one in October!

Take care & thank you for popping by x
