Maine Stampers Part 2!

As promised on Monday's post, I have Part 2 of our Maine Stamper's get-together. Not only did we have a shoe-box swap, but a few of us lead in other projects.

Cathy had a list of tips & tricks that she went over with all of us with years of experience as a stamper and all the wonderful tips & tricks that come with stamping. Everyone was very interested and agreed with all of her presentation, well done Cathy!

Next I was up to demonstrate and have the girls complete the "Ink Blowing Technique". If you missed this in a earlier post, the step-by-step instructions can be found HERE.

This is the card we made:


Cathy showed us how to alter clothespins and we all made 2 of them. Aren't they cute?


Jeannine had us all make this adorable treat/goodie/gift card holder:


Isn't the gold embosssing so elegant? And below are 2 other items that you can add to coordinate the holder. A card and a bookmark. All of these 3 items were shown at convention this year. The bookmark fits inside of the holder:

 
The photo's below are all Stampin' Up! products used in projects on display for everyone to get inspiration and ideas from:

As you can see, we had an awesome day of creating, socializing, eating and getting to know each other. It was a blast! Thanks to all the new friends I've made. Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is just wonderful! Won't you join my team to find out!
