Getting Crafty!

What I truly love the most about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and an all-around crafty gal, is getting groups of people together and creating.  Whether it's introducing people to stamping for the first time and seeing their astonishment as their make and take project comes together, or getting a group of experienced stampers together for a stamp a stack or to learn new techniques.

Last Friday I hosted a Craft Night.  There were six ladies total, all working on completely different projects!  It was a free event that I hope to do on a monthly basis, and everyone brought their projects with them to work on with a little socializing mixed in!

I had the big Shot and my paper cutter on hand, and Heather brought her Cricut...


Emily worked on some cross-stitch, Erin made a baby shower card and a decoupage frame, 12-year old Mariah worked on some friendship bracelets and a card, Heather worked on Lily's scrapbook, and my Mum stamped some cards.  Everyone was very willing to share supplies and help each other out...



I made a little set of 3x3 notecards with envelopes that fit into a little gift box.  I used some retired designer series paper, the scallop envelope die for the Big Shot, and the "Picture This" stamp set fom the Occasions Mini Catalog...


Here it the card that my Mum made... she only started stamping about six months ago... isn't this card beautiful?  She's been such a help and inspiration to me with sewing, so it's fun to be able to teach her a little about stamping and see her enjoy it!


And Mariah is ALWAYS so creative.  She used the Bugs & Kisses stamp set with some Stampin Write markers and a couple of circle punches to create a card for a new baby in her family.  She did a great job!
