Hi there! Yesterday I attended a "Spring Fling" event and had a blast! Let me tell ya, it certainly didn't feel like Spring outside! I heard the snow plow come down our street early yesterday morning. That got me out of bed real quick to peek outside to see how much snow had fallen. It wasn't even an inch but I had about 30 miles to travel and snow could make that a scary trip. Fortunately, the roads were fine! Now back to the event.... Sally Nusbaum organizes a few different events for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators throughout the year, usually after the debut of a new catalog. There are demonstrations, make n takes, business information, prizes, and card swapping (optional). Oh, and food! The best part, for me at least, is meeting other Demonstrators. Sally's events are so much fun and I have met the nicest people! If you're a Demonstrator and would like to attend, contact me and I'll connect you to Sally. She does an awesome job! So with all that said, the above packaged plastic shovel is one of the favors we received. Isn't that just too cute? We also received this one shown below.
This little cutie holds a square of Ghiradelli chocolate. Yum! It was made using the new Angled Tag Topper punch, gold Washi tape, and gold Baker's Twine - all from the 2014 Occasions Catalog. The next favor designed by Kim Coulter is my personal favorite.
What a gorgeous presentation! That rose was made using the new Spiral Flower Originals Die. Polka dot Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum was cut from a Starburst Framelit. (Each package of Designer Vellum contains 3 sheets of 3 different designs) The branch of leaves (bird punch found in Annual Catalog) and banner (new Framelits) were made from our Foil Sheets found on page 23 of the Occasions Catalog. The Chevron print kraft bag is a product that appears in the Annual Catalog on page 158 and the Tea Lace Paper Doilies can be found on page 156. What's inside the bag you ask? Samples of both gold and silver Designer Vellum, gold and silver Baker's Twine, Mini Metallic Clothespins, Silver 1/8" Ribbon, and Gold Sequin Trim! Are you seeing a theme here? lol It was gold, silver, and red.
Tomorrow I'll share the make n take projects. Thanks for stopping in today!
