I saw three ships come sailing in …

I was at a quarterly training craft event last weekend run by my lovely upline, Michelle Last, and had such a fabulous day!  I got to spend time with fellow crafters, and was wowed and inspired by the inspiration stations and the workshop wows.  Michelle’s make and takes were gorgeous, as always.

These events are a great opportunity to share ideas with each other and to see how the Stampin Up products can be used.  My swap cards were 3 versions of male birthday cards using the new Sail Away stamp from the mini catalogue:



And the arty angles:




And these are the lovely swaps I received in return – thank you for sharing lovely ladies!  And thank you Michelle for organising such a great event.

If you would like to join us at the next event in Bicester on 17 July, you can contact either Michelle Last or myself and we would be happy to help.  Everyone is welcome and we would love you to come – the more the merrier! 


Stampin Up supplies used for my swaps:

Cardstock: early espresso, sahara sand, bashful blue, whisper white; Inks: early espresso, bashful blue, black stazon; Stamp sets: sail away, circle circus, sincere salutations; Punches: designer label, modern label, ½” circle, 3/8” circle from itty bitty shapes pack; Accessories: crimper, brayer, linen thread, stampin dimensionals.


Thanks for dropping by today
