I had a blast in San Antonio at Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference. One of the best things was getting together with demonstrator friends from across Canada and the USA. There's always lots of laughter and lots of great inspiration and ideas shared.
Here's a few neat samples from one of the displays featuring the Dresden Designs die – used for quilting plus for paper crafting as well! I did try my hand at quilting while I was living in BC….let's just say that while I enjoyed it, I wasn't that proficient….but I think the die would make quilting this pattern SO much easier and faster to put together! I love the cute tree that they made from Designer Series Paper.
We enjoy crafting as much as our customers do, and the make and takes are always eagerly anticipated. We received two sets when we arrived (well, among other things we received!) and we used these for our projects. Here are my friends Christina, Sue and Liz working hard….
okay, well perhaps not THAT hard…
This is the cute bag that our Leadership items were in – designed by a new friend, Mel – so creative! The bottom portion is reversible!!
I always come back from demonstrator events feeling re-energized (well, after I catch up on my sleep!!! LOL). I just need more time to process everything and follow-through on some new plans and ideas! (don't worry, I'll keep you posted).
I will have more photos to share in the next few days. Oh, did I mention that a few of us got to attend part of the filming for the final episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition???!!!! 😉 stay tuned for more details
