I got to host my first business meeting last week! I have two new teammates, and it was so fun to get together and share strategies and advice as a group. I also invited each member to make two swap cards using one or more products from the Occasions or Sale-a-Bration catalogues. Swap cards are a great way to get inspired, and it’s wonderful to be able to display products that you may not have yourself, at your classes.
Here’s the swap card I created, using the Waterfront stamp set. This was my first time playing with this set, and I can tell that I am going to get a lot of use out of it! I’m already thinking ahead to creating some masculine birthday cards, as well as friendship/support cards, and maybe some sympathy cards …. I think this set will even make good Christmas cards!
I love the sentiments in this set as well. “Friends make the good times better” definitely describes how I feel about my team. I’m excited to see what we will accomplish together!
Christina wowed us with her Barn Door Slider card. There are so many beautiful details on this card, and sliding out the “door” to reveal the hidden sentiment really adds an element of fun! I love the way she used the Balloon Celebration stamp set to create the dandelion puff!
Claire used the beautiful Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You thinlits to create this breathtaking card in a colour combination I just love! Both these products are available free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-Bration, which runs until March 31st. She also decorated the inside of the card and the envelope, just to add that extra touch!
Wondering how she created that “JOY” at the bottom left of the card? It’s the “YOU” from the thinlit set, flipped back-to-front, and with part of the ‘u’ trimmed to create a J! How clever!
Have you ever thought about becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator? I’d love to chat with you! Claire and Christina can tell you that our team meetings are fun, supportive, and informative. Sale-a-Bration is a great time to become a demo, as you will get two extra stamp kits in your starter kit! That’s up to a $297 value for just $135!
