As crafters we like nothing better

When crafter's all get together we share & create. Last week at Leamington Spa regionals we made some fabulous projects designed by the Stampin' Up team. I have been dying to share these with you but I couldn't do that until after the final regional training event at Leeds today, it wouldn't be fair to spoil the surprise for those attending today's event.
There was something for everyone in the crafting session of training
A Mixed Bunch Scrapbook page

My beautiful Daughter at the beach

A Card Mixed Bunch Daisy 

& finally a 3d project

All of the projects were made using our FREE stamp set Mixed Bunch.
Stamp beautiful, unique flowers or create an entire flower garden in no time with this intricately designed six-piece set. Makes a thoughtful gift! Coordinates with the Blossom, 3/4" Circle, and 1" Circle Punches.

Sharing more swaps from Leamington regionals

Here are some of the fabulous swaps that I was lucky to receive at the recent training event, these are all on a general theme from the ideas catalogue products.

This treat holder has 2 hersheys kisses inside.

Magnetic keyring


A beautiful coaster

I have always believed if I gave 20 people the same set of stamps I would see in return 20 different projects, this selection of swaps highlights the different interpretations people have, what wonderfully creative people I meet doing my job.

Thank you to everyone who swapped with me at the Leamington event, I will post more of my swaps tomorrow.
If you fancy joining my Stampin' Up team please contact me to discuss your creative journey.

Leamington Spa & regional training

At the weekend Sharon, Veronika & I made the 9 1/2 hour journey from Norwich to Leamington Spa, I know what your all thinking 9 1/2 hours! maybe they got lost. No we didn't get lost, but we did have great fun on our road trip as we took the creative route via two craft shops & we stopped for a lovely pub lunch. About an hour after lunch I craved cake & where better to stop for cake & coffee but Ikea, en route I googled Ikea just to see if there was a store near our training event & we were only 3 miles from Coventry. So after some more shopping we eventually arrived in our hotel some 9 1/2 hours after leaving Norwich.
Sharon still had swaps to finish & we both had name badges to make so out of the car came half of Sharon's craft room, i'm not joking. We sat up until midnight crafting eating Crisps & Choccie & drinking a glass of wine or two.
Stampin' Up is a great company to work for one of the greatest things is " Share what we love, & love what we do" this is never truer than at a Stampin' Up event. After registration one of the first activities is swapping, the theme for this event was " Summer Mini ".

These are 2 of the 35 swaps I managed, I often make the same card & just use different colour ways. The set I've used for the swap is from the summer mini & is called Bordering On Romance.
Every demonstrator that takes part will make up a project or a card front to swap with the other demo's this year I managed 35 swaps.
 This is a great source of inspiration and helps to showcase  many different styles on your demo boards at our own events.
I received some great swaps and I will share them with you over the next couple of days. For me there is always a swap that stands out, this can be for many different reasons maybe a colour way I don't normally choose, A technique that is new to me, A stamp set that I didn't need but after seeing a great sample has now moved to the top of my list or just the creativity & work involved.
This sample was made by a fellow demo Sue Ralph
For me the sample that is my favourite had not just one but all of those elements. Thank you Sue for swapping with me.

Have a look below to find out what kind of Demonstrator you could be...

What kind of Demonstrator will you be?

Whether you want to purchase your own stamping supplies at a discount, earn some extra money from your hobby, or to build a business, Stampin' Up! provides you with the opportunity to reach your goals.


You like the idea of buying stamps and supplies for your personal use at a 20% discount and occasionally selling to neighbours, relatives, friends etc.


You work hard for a short period of time or season to earn a specific amount of money or to achieve a specific goal, and then you maintain minimum orders and sales during the rest of the year.


You love doing workshops and earning extra money when it is convenient. You work alot some months and very little other months. You will do workshops if they are easy to book, and maybe have a regular group that meets together once a month. You enjoy the rewards that being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator brings, but you don't plan to make Stampin' Up! a career.


You view Stampin' Up! as a viable business with long-term career potential. You pursue a management role, and you want to continue moving up with your Stampin' Up! career. You love attending Stampin' Up! events and have close relationships with other demonstrators. You work at your business in a consistent and outgoing manner.

As you can see, this is a fun, flexible business you can build to suit your individual needs and goals.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
