Stampin' Up! Class - 4 September 2010.

Hi all,

Hope you're all having a good weekend :) Just wanted to say that my ladies and I had another fab class today and they were in for a treat. As you know, having customers who share my love and passion for cardmaking is important to me, they're a great group of ladies and we always have so much fun.

To say a big thank you to them for being such good customers and friends, I decided to host a special class. As you may well know, I hold a monthly Stamper's Club where orders are collected and each month someone is Hostess and reap the benefits. Unfortunately, to date, no-one has managed to earn a Level 3 Stamp Set that is much adored and sought after - "Queue Up". This stamp set is just so adorable and as a Demonstrator, at the beginning of the Stampin' Up! year I had the opportunity to purchase it :) I'm so pleased I did. I probably haven't used it all that much actually, but I do like it lots!

Anyway, enough of my waffling, todays class was all about "Queue Up" and my ladies were able to get their hands and play with this stamp set to create the following cards below, which was cased and inspired from the current Idea Book & Catalogue, P.13.
