A Great Time was had by All at the Placer Teen Center on Sunday.
From beginners to our more seasoned stampers, we
all couldn't wait to dive right into the excitement of the day.
My Stamp and Stretch Team set up 10 project stations featuring the Celebrate the Everyday Catalog. Each project was created to be finished in 15 minutes with most of the supplies cut and ready to be stamped, punched or embossed. All the attendees loved the opportunity to TRY OUT new products and watch product demonstrations.
Here's cute little Jackie Weber from Sacramento with one of her guests. Everyone loved trying out the magnetic platform with the STARBURST SAYINGS and Framelit Dies at Jackie's station. I think she got a couple people hooked on that amazing magnetic tool. (project photo coming)
Sally Strohm aka SAL (Loomis), demonstrated how to make an adorable mini envelope on her project using the envelope board.
How cute is that!!!! I love the Modern Medley DSP Black/cream color combo with the Bermuda Bay and Red Glimmer paper. That Glittery Heart is tucked in so sweetly with the surrounding rhinestones and looks so shiny IRL . This is a perfect card for any age group don't you think?
The Main display table featured all the 10 projects plus a BONUS 3-d Valentine Treat Bag. Of Course we also had project displays of other items from the Celebrate Catalog for their inspiration. With so many wonderful products in the NEW catalog it was hard to decide which ones to bring and share. ( o.k. confession time, my Big Red sleigh....the same one we all drove to convention in, was packed with my newest Stampin'Up obsessions, which we just had to share with everyone). I think just about everyone won a door prize from the big prize box... Retired paper, stamp sets, hardware, ribbon and a few 3-D projects....big smiles all around as they got to choose their favorite from the box.
Marsha Jahn's project station featured the art of watercolor. A beautiful Valentine card painted with layers of reinkers. Some of the attendees had a new experience using the Aqua Painters and ink, you might say they Fell in Love with the Technique!
Mary Middendorf (Cool, CA) had 2 stations of fun. A Valentine card featuring 3 of the FREE choices from Sale-A-Bration using Strawberry Slush and Vanilla. I have to say it's a YUMMY combination. I love the fact that she made this adorable card with just one color of ink.
Mary's second station featured the Kaleidoscope DSP, Triangle Punch and the Geometrical stamp set. (photos coming)
Here's Kendra and Millie enjoying using the Retro Fresh DSP at Jackie's station. We had 2 stations using this wonderful Designer Paper. Here is the project I featured with this paper.
I simply feel in love with the Retro Fresh collection of Designer Paper and matching Washi Tape. I used So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Coastal Cabana Coordinations paper that was lightly sanded and Baked Brown Sugar card stock.
The Small Heart punch and Champagne Glimmer Paper gave a perfect finishing touch and matches the Brown Sugar so sweetly! The sentiment is from the Perfect Pennants stamp set in the Celebrate the everyday Catalog.
