My First Stampin' Up! Workshop!

On Saturday, September 7th, I had my 1st Stampin' Up! Workshop!  I have been a customer for years and only became a demonstrator in August 2012 to support my crafting habit.  So I've been to plenty of Stampin' Up! parties in the past, but being the demonstrator was a new, fun experience!

This August during a wine event, I met this very nice lady, Traci, and we learned during our conversation that she was a paper crafter like myself.  So when she said that she wanted to have a Stampin' Up! party, I said "of course!"  She invited her friends, Lemyrtle and Wendy, and they all came over for some fun.

We held the workshop at my house, and that took a lot of the pressure off.  Instead of hosting it in my Craft Room, at the last minute I had to move the party into our dining room because the entire San Francisco Bay Area was experiencing record-setting heat that day, and it was going to be in the high 90's!  Since my Craft Room is our converted 2-car garage--no insulation!--we would not have stood a chance working in that heat.  But with the AC blasting, we made two cards and had a great time!

(she hadn't crafted in 3 years till that day!)

To show my appreciation to Traci for hosting and to her guests for coming, I made each of them this adorable Thank You card using the new Thinlits Card Dies.  I tried my hand at two different flip cards, but I still need some practice, so I went back to basics to get the job done.



I really enjoyed playing with my new Thinlits Card Dies and all of the coordinating pieces!  I can't wait to pull them out again! Thanks for stopping by today!  Until next time, happy crafting!
