Stampin' Up! Open House Afternoon

Hi all,

I'm still on a high from my lovely day yesterday, so much so that I think I've been surviving on adrenaline rather than sleep! lol.

After my Stampin' Up! Class in the morning and my Open House Afternoon from 2pm I finally got in my PJs as soon as my last lady left and I retired to bed and didn't wake up till around 6pm!!! Oops, I guess those late nights are finally catching up with me.

Anyway, yesterday's Class went well and you can see the cards the ladies made in my previous post here.

Yesterday afternoon I had my Open House Afternoon, an event to invite my Stampin' Up! customers/friends over to have a look at the new Idea Book & Catalogue, look at samples I've recently made with new goodies, see a demo from myself and play with new products/colours to create a Make & Take.

It was lovely to see so many women so excited about Stampin' Up! and I think they all had a great time :)

Here's the card I demoed to the ladies below using another new favourite colour of mine: Cherry Cobbler! I have teamed up Dasher along with a Level 3 Hostess stamp set called Occasional Quotes that I was able to purchase earlier last month as a perk of being a Demonstrator. YOU can earn for free for a qualifying workshop.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing what my ladies got to see yesterday and if you'd like to be invited next time for my next Stampin' Up! Open House Event, get in touch with me.

Have a good day.
