To counteract this, I vowed last year to participate more in other demonstrators' card classes. It was the best thing I did! Not only do I get to play (without all the prep work, I might add), I also get to experiment with designs that I would never ever come up with on my own. And, I gotta say, these designs are so much fun!
How stinkin' cute is this???
Annette designed this card for our monthly stamp club that met a couple Saturday mornings ago. Lots of punching -- look at all those wonderful hearts! We ran some paper through a dry emboss folder before punching out some hearts -- clever huh?
And I can't wait for Saturday, February 12th -- my other good friend, Virginia will be demonstrating for our monthly stamp club. I can't wait to see her design! Watch for the post -- I promise to have it up by the end of the weekend.
Have you joined a stamp club yet? If not, I encourage you to do so! It is so nice to have stamping time scheduled into your calendar on a regular basis. We make a commitment to spend 2 hours a month together and we have so much fun!
Another great opportunity: Annette and Virginia joined my downline a few years back. We are officially known as the Paper Art Muses -- and we are always looking for stampers who would like to join our team! We get together on a regular basis to share ideas with one another. And we plan joint events (like our Shoebox Swap events that we have had -- see previous posts for the great cards that come out of those events).
These women have become more than just "downline" -- they have become dear friends who share in our passion for stamping! And this year's goal is to tackle the new world of digital scrapbooking! Stampin' Up has a whole line of digital art that mirrors their rubber stamp art! And it is my task to learn the program so that I can share it with the team. (I love to scrapbook, so this task was truly a way to squeeze in some scrapbooking time! heehee).
We would love to have you join us! Visit my SU Website to shoot me an email --
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a beautiful day....
