Today I am off to the Village Hall in Croughton for the Pinkies Team Training Event. I can't wait to catch up with everyone and make some lovely things. We have a special guest joining us today too, Paula Gorry the UK Country Manager for Stampin' Up! How exciting!
When we all get together, we always make swaps. Usually we all make a card or 3D project using Stampin' Up! products, we would make enough for each person attending (we have 47 attending today). We then would spend 30 minutes or so swapping our makes with each other and talking about what each other has made. Its great as you get inspired with new ideas and techniques and we also then have samples of stamp sets or designer series papers that we might not own ourselves that we can show to our friends and customers.
For this event Michelle wanted us to try something different. What we had to do was put our name against stamp sets Michelle had chosen from the Spring Summer or Sale-a-Bration catalogues. There were 6 slots under each stamp set and I chose the Birthday Blooms stamp set. Our task was to make 6 swaps using our chosen stamp set and other Stampin' Up! current products of our choice. We then had 5 cards to swap with the others in the same group and one to keep for ourselves. I can't wait to see what everyone has made!
