The Stampin Up family...

...was out in force last weekend, at our annual national training/get together.  One of the nicest things about being a StampinUp demonstrator is the people you get to meet.  We saw some of the new products from the annual catalogue which comes out on the 1st July (you are going to lurrrve them!), got business advice from SU staff and demonstrators and enjoyed swapping the projects that we'd brought.  This is what I made for our swap:
It's a little bird brooch (the background was nicked from the catalogue hee hee).  I didn't have any left except this one that went a bit wrong with the crystal effects glaze, but otherwise I was very pleased with the result.  It has a sparkly sheen all over that you can't really see in the pic, from some lovely gold smooch spray.  You can see it better in this pic I took before the event, even though it's out of focus:.

And here's the scene a few days before, yikes - that was a happy afternoon finishing them off and packing them up!

...and look at the swaps I got back (this isn't even all of them, there were sooo many!) Loads of good designs, ideas, colours to inspire me and my guests for future projects...and quite a lot with treats inside (all gone now, obviously, it was a long train ride home...).

If you would like to join our StampinUp family, and enjoy all the fun of meeting up and swapping, and discounted product, it's really easy.  If you were to join now, you would only have to place one qualifying order to attend the European Convention in November, held in the UK this year. For just £99 you will get your choice of £130 of product (£155 if you join by 30th May) PLUS business tools to get you started making money for yourself, free.  There's NEVER any pressure to sell or any further obligations; that's the SU philosophy, you choose, you do it your way.   Do get in touch an informal chat about it!


  1. It was lovely to spend time with you in Telford Helen and I adore your little birdie brooch swap. Glad you had plenty of treats for the journey home! Vicky x

  2. Great minds think alike obviously Vicky - thank you for *my* birdy brooch too!
