Hi! I had a blast in Louisville, KY at the Stampin’ Up Regionals! I presented 2x and it went pretty well. My stomach was doing flip flops since it was supposed to be a 30 min workshop presentation and I’m not used to doing that in front of 500 people. So I forgot a few things but I had fun and working with the SU team there was wonderful. I was able to spend time with good friends and stamping, a few of my favorite things!
A few highlights from the Regional:
I won’t share too much since there is one more regional in January in TX and I don’t want to ruin surprises for those who are going.
Julie Davison demonstrated the Faux Tile technique and here are 2 of her samples:
Mary Brown had a booth to show how she ties her bows with brads:
Megan Wheeler did a GREAT presentation on how she’s been doing workshops lately. Here are her projects:
This is a terrible pic but Bonnie Thurber made some cute and easy tags with the Felt accents in the Holiday Mini catalog
June Dunn showed her technique for tying bows – love these cards, June!
These next few cards were on display and I don’t know who stamped them so if it was you, let me know and I’ll credit you. I just liked them so thought I’d share!
(flames from the SU Bird punch – clever!)
That’s all for now! Don’t forget that there are only a few days left of the FREE Big Shot with Starter Kit! SU has extended it until November 11th!
I would love to know how the faux tile technique is done.
Your cards are all great.
I love seeing punches ‘repurposed’…the candle card is a cute one! Thanks for sharing the idea.
It’s super easy, Lois! Score your card stock every 1/2″ in 2 directions. Lightly sponge a neutral color like Crumb Cake and stamp! The stamp will not ink where you have scored so it gives the illusion of tile. I used to dot some Crystal Effects over it to make the tiles shiny.
