More Cards to Share

Hello again,
On Saturday I attended the first Stampin' Up! Demonstrator meeting for Victoria. These types of meetings are usually held in Nanaimo but we thought one held in Victoria would allow for more attendance/participation by local demonstrators. The morning consisted of a talk about listing your objectives with regards to your membership with Stampin' Up! - do you want to run it as a hobby (getting a discount for your paper crafting supplies) or as a business (making income).

The majority of demonstrators prefer to join Stampin' Up! to get the minimum 20% discount on all products but many run it as a business, earning income to support their living expenses or to supplement their existing income for the special things in life. These types of meetings are just one of the many perks you get when becoming a member of Stampin' Up! If you'd like more information on joining the Stampin' Up! family and my team, I'd be happy to chat with you.

After a wonderful lunch with time to chat with each other, we broke out for several make-n-take sessions. What is a make-n-take you may ask. Well, it's a project that is demonstrated by a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator that includes all the supplies to make that project. The project could be a three dimensional project, i.e. a box or a treat bag or a card that could include a specific technique.

Here is a photo of the card I demonstrated for my make-n-take. It's a double front fold card which I learned about from Linda Curcio. You can watch her video here and make one of your own.

Here are photos of the other make-n-takes:

The piece behind the balloon was created by
rolling marbles.
This is the emboss resist technique.

I always learn something new from these meetings. If you'd like a class on how to create any of these cards, let me know.

Happy Stampin'
