Today I have news about my Open House for the launch of the new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue. Maybe you would like to see the card that the attendees got to make? (If you didn’t spot it on FaceBook on Saturday, of course!)
I wanted to keep the design simple and the supplies minimal because I was expecting at least a couple of people who have not stamped before and I was hoping they’d like this and maybe want to get involved. I then made two “stepped up” versions of the card, progressively using more “complex” products, including embellishments, additional inks and the Big Shot! Each card represented a bigger investment in craft kit, basically!
Unfortunately the new stampers I was hoping for didn’t make it, and other than my little family, we only had four people come along – and only 3 of those made cards! Which was a shame. But those that came had a good time, and were pleased with their creations. I also have a friend coming over tonight who will be having a go, and another couple of friends who couldn’t make the weekend but who want to get together soon.
Here’s my little Smidge, ready and waiting for the “punters”!:
I know I am biased, but doesn’t he look so cute?!
If you like the look of this card, and want to make one yourself – or buy the “ingredients” to make lots! – then don’t hesitate to call or email me and we will get you set up with it. I’d love to share these products with you. They are such good quality and give a brilliant result every time. Even self-proclaimed “non-crafters” have got great results, and have really surprised themselves!
So go on, get involved!
In other news, I spent most of Sunday sewing for the twins, so I have photos of that to show you this week, as well as an “old” design which is quite new again due to new products in the Annual catalogue for 2015-2016, and I will also share the “stepped up” make and take examples with you. Obviously that will take more than the posts scheduled for this week to share, so we have a nice run of posts coming up with various inspiration for you. Hopefully you will find something to whet your appetite! (I aim to post here every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. It doesn’t always happen, but that is what I strive for!)
Don’t forget about the weekly deals for this week – they are only available at this price for today, and then tomorrow there will be a new set of deals with new products available at reduced prices. I will share more on those tomorrow! Have a great day, and do let me know what you think of my Make and Take project and Smidge all ready to craft…
