A Bliss-ful Weekend - My First Workshop
I was really nervous as to whether I would remember all the things I needed to tell the ladies as none of them had heard of Stampin' Up! before so everything was completely new.
On the advise of my lovely Stampin' Up! mum Jules I decided to demonstrate a scrapbook page using the beautiful Bliss set which is free with a spend of £45 or over until 28th February (not long left to get this beauty!!). I haven't done a scrapbook page before & apart from preparing the card & paper mats I was going to use the rest was done on a wing & a prayer lol!!
I've used a 12 x 12 sheet of Blushing Bride paper from the In Color Designer Paper Stack (119799) a mat of Pear Pizzazz paper from the same pack & a mat of Concord Crush cardstock from the In Color Card Pack (121701).
The whole page came together really well & I'm really pleased with the finished sample. It certainly helped to 'sell' the Bliss set & most of the ladies chose this as their free set after purchasing over £45 (before p&p) from the catalogue.
They all went on to make a 'make & take' I demonstrated & were all delighted with their stamping skills. All in all a very good workshop & a great start to my Stampin' Up! career as I also took a booking for another workshop. I managed to achieve a 'Level 3 Hostess Gift' & chose the Occasional Quotes & £60 in free goodies from the catalogue, the great thing about being the Demonstrator & Hostess for the workshop.
If you want to purchase anything from the catalogue or are interested in anything to do with Stampin' Up! then please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thanks for looking.
I'm entering this is the following challenges
ABC Challenge - Old Fashioned (I think the flourish & Bliss give this a vintage feel)
Incy Wincy Designs - Use punches
My Time To Craft - Hats (Johns top hat is in the picture!!)
