WOWZEEE what a fantastic time we all had!! We anticipated for so long now whether we were going to get a copy of the new catalogue and WE DID, also we anticipated if we were going to get some of our favorite sets that are current in the US catalogue and … WE ARE!!! same with the punches and other yummy stuff, WE DID get MORE! not all of it of course but definitely a very good selection that is sure to keep your wish lists topped up for a while, I know mine is getting bigger every time I browse the catalogue lol. All in all it was a fantastic event, well organized jam packed with inspirational demonstrations and inspirational stories, also it was great to meet up with demos from across the country, it was like meeting long time friends as you do get to know them on the forum board so when you meet them in the flesh you feel like you already know them. Waves to you all fabulous ladies!!!
We got to play with loads of new stamp sets and I got to handle the scallop border punch( OMG!! you so need to preorder this ASAP as you will want one when you ll see everyone using it on the forums it is FAB!!) so we created loads of fab projects and even our country manager the lovely Paula Iaciofano got stuck into crafting on the night, and I have got photographic evidence, Paula always looks impeccable and her shoes are often the talk of the demonstrators on the boards and she didn’t disappoint this time either, she wore a gorgeous pair of patent heels in cream and black to complement her dress, gorgeous.
also behind Paula you can spot the lovely Kelly Francis, Kelly is Paula s assistant and shes a doll .
We also had an important guest all the way from the States in the name of Pam Morgan, Pam is the Vice President of Demonstrator Services and Development for SU and has been a demonstrator herself for 15 years and for the last 10 she s been working for Stampin Up! HQ, a very inspirational lady I could have chatted and listened to her all night. I was humbled and honoured to be asked to demonstrate at the event and I have chosen to demo a technique( emboss resist), I don’t honestly think I did ok as I was just besides myself with nerves, if you attended one of my workshops or know me you know I don’t really get nervous and I am very confident, however the thought of demonstrating for demonstrators has obviously altered something in my head and I can’t remember how I got through it, I just know it wasn’t great lol but of course my fellow demonstrators were supportive for which I am grateful. The other lady that was asked to do a demonstration was the fabulous Michelle, now this lady is a STAR let me tell you, and her demo was GREAT!!!! here s a picture of the two of us with Pam
ermm wait a minute what s that in the background?? could it be the new catalogue cover? hmm lol
Here s a picture of me at it and the card that I ve demonstrated on the night.
I will show you more stuff done with the same technique and colours next time till then hugs. Monica xxxx
