Another cute Make n' Take

As I mentioned the other day, I was at the Craft out West over the weekend. It was a huge success and there were lots of lovely stalls including our very own Stampin' Up! one. I worked the Saturday with Karen who is my wonderful upline and this is one of the cute cards people could make with Karen for FREE, if they visited us. I love these bright, coordinating colours.

All a Flutter

This is one of the FREE little cards that people were able to make if they came to visit our stand today at the Craft out West Show.  It's a great show and is only $5 entry with FREE parking held at the Trusts Stadium in Henderson. It's on again tomorrow from 10-4pm and all the money raised goes to the West Auckland Hospice, which is a very worthy cause. 

Stamp Set: All a Flutter, Short and Sweet 
Ink: Black StazOn
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pale Plum, Lovely Lilac
Accessories: Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Watercolour Wonder Crayons, Blender pen, Dimensionals.

If you're not doing anything tomorrow, why don't you go along to the Trusts Stadium. I won't be there, but others from our team will be, with a choice of two adorable little cards to make for FREE. You won't be disappointed!!

Regional Training Swap

This is the swap I made for our Regional Training day - it's very easy and is an ideal workshop card.

Regional Training was yesterday and it was 6 hours of fun, stamping, tips and techniques. Having a fun training day, is just one of the great benefits of being a demonstrator!

If you like this card and are interested in hosting a workshop, email me HERE and I can tell you all you need to know. Hosting a workshop is no cost to you and it's a great introduction to stamping.

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Thank You Kindly
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Craft White (took a very long time to dry - next time I think I'd emboss it or use White Staz On).
Cardstock: Kraft, Chocolate Chip

Enjoy what's left of your weekend!!
