It All Started With A Shuttle Launch…

We had a special guest from Stampin’ Up visit us at our local FL meeting this past week!   Lots of you know Pam Morgan, who is Stampin’ Up’s Vice President, Demo Services and Development.  She is seen on stage every year at conventions and loves to demonstrate projects and stamp like the rest of us!
We co-hosted Catherine Harwood’s group from Merritt Island and about 13 of her downline joined us!  It all started when Catherine’s husband had invited Pam to come to FL to watch one of the last shuttle launches (Catherine’s  husband is a space reporter/journalist for the  shuttle program). Pam had the idea that she would like to visit demonstrators and offered to come to her group meeting.  Catherine thought it would be fun to team up with our group since we were nearby and graciously offered to bring her team our way to join our group here.
Hey Space Coast girls! Thanks for joining us and driving all the way over.  Y’all were so fun and GREAT stampers!   I took pics of all the awesome projects you brought for our Share & Show table and I’ll be posting those next week!

We filled up our room with about 60 demonstrators that could make it that day.  Catherine and I prepared some make and takes and Pam spent 10 minutes or more at each table with her notepad, listening and answering questions. It was so great to have her with us that day and really shows how much Stampin’ Up will go the extra mile for US!

Pam brought samples and demonstrated our Simply Adorned charms. Here are her demos and samples:

See the teeny butterfly?  On the right is an old newsprint that pam stamped, sponged and crumpled.

The Crown is from Tiny Tags in the current Occasions Mini catalog.

I think this one was a gift to Pam – her initial in in the chipboard on a fabric flower cut from our Flower Fold die.  The little circle charm is hanging from the initial.

The next pics are inserts she created.  When you get your Simply Adorned charms (and they come in a few square, rectangle and circle sizes) save the paper inserts to use as your guide!

The bird is from Always, our SU designer paper and the gold crown embossed is from Tiny Tags!  Pam said it is so fun to use our designer paper since they are so rich with designs, even when you are decorating something so small.  It’s fun to hunt for patterns within patterns.

And of course old photos!  Guess who?

Yep, that’s Pam!

Thanks for stoppin’ by!  Linda

  1. And of course the uniquely Florida part is the launch got delayed (as they’ve been known to do) — but Pam still came anyway. If you want some great space news, here’s my husband’s CBS news space website — he’s the best in the biz:

  2. Also a huge THANKS to Linda for all the work she put in to make this happen. She runs an awesome meeting!

    What a great day! It was fun to meet our fellow demonstrators from Linda’s group and to meet the Stampin’ School Teacher herself! There were great ideas and samples on display, as well as doing our own make and takes.

    Pam Morgon was awesome! I have never been to convention and hope to get there someday. It was neat to learn that Pam and I share the same initials!

    I hope we can all get together again sometime! Thanks Catherine and Linda!

    I had a wonderful time meeting Pam , Catherine, and a couple of the East coast girls that sat at my table.
    I thoroughly enjoyed my chat with Pam Morgan, and felt that she really listened to what was important to me, what a great experience!!!!

  7. …and if Catherine and Linda wouldn’t have hosted Pam, then the Tampa stop on her three-county tour, would have never happened! Thanks go out to you guys! :o) Your meeting sounded just as marvelous as ours was!

    Your meeting looked fun! Thanks for sharing all the awesome swaps !!


  9. Linda,
    Thanks so much for posting this. I had a wonderful time and it was so great to be introduced to the Simply Adorned charms. I must say that I ordered one to decorate to wear around and
    I am hoping that it will be great advertisement. It was also great to be able to talk with Pam Morgan and to visit with other local demonstrators. The items brought for the share and show table were amazing this time. I will be working with my down line to coordinate a class using the tins that were on display. Thanks again for all that you do for us!
