Yesterday I hosted (crammed?) a lovely group of ladies at my house to share the 2016 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogues & products with them. As always, it was cosy and everyone was very patient.
If you’re get to see the catalogues, you can view the pdf copies here – Occasions & Sale-A-Bration, view the range online here or request a hard copy here.
Anne Barker was the lucky recipient of the door prize, many took home lucky winner prizes and lots of beautiful cards were made.
So many thanks to Kristel, one of my wonderful team, for helping me out. You were amazing!
Following on from an idea I’d seen on Carolyn Bennie’s blog, the ‘create’ part of the morning was a card buffet for the lovely ladies to choose from. I made 6 kits with instructions so they could pick & choose which card/s they wanted to make. This gave them the chance to play with the products they were most fascinated by.
These were the choices:
Kit#1: Sky’s The Limit Stamp Set & World Traveler Embossing Folder
Kit #2: Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Die, Birthday Bouquet DSP, Large Numbers Banner & What I Love Stamp Set
Kit #3: Wildflower Fields DSP, Large Numbers Framelits & Number of Years Stamp Set
Kit #4: Botanical Gardens DSP, Botanical Builder Framelits & Enjoy The Little Things Stamp Set
Kit #5: Rose Wonder Stamp Set & Rose Garden Thinlits
Kit #6: Balloon Celebration Stamp Set & Balloon Bouquet Punch
Can you guess which kit was the most popular? It was actually the Botanical Gardens card. People loved the 3D effect of the flower and the leaf edgelit die – it’s a stunning set with lots of opportunity.
If you’ve been following the news over the past few days you may have seen the tragic bush fires that have are sweeping across the south west of WA. Over 70,000 hectares of land has been burnt including homes, farms, bush and a complete townsite. It’s incredibly sad- the loss and devastation is mind blowing.
We are over 50kms away from the closest fire and in no danger, so it was a good chance to use my launch event to help by raising some money and doing what we do best – making some cards to thank the wonderful fire fighters.
These are the cards the ladies made today (filled with lovely messages of support) using the “A Nice Cuppa” and the “Cups and Kettle Framelits“. I love the diversity, despite the same pieces to work with…
As well as sending these off, I am donating 5% of all orders this weekend directly to the bush fire appeal. If I can help with you any Stampin’ Up! products and help the bush fire appeal at the same time, please contact me or order online. The host code for this weekend is F97JMFSP.
