Team training..

Hello well here I am back to the place I used to call home. I am saying *used to* because I have been in England so long and that is where my home is NOW, but is still wonderful to be back. Mum is doing ok still in hospital but improving every day, I am meeting the consultant and specialist later today so hopefully they will be able to give me a full report. I wanted to thank all of you that got in touch with me wishing mum well, it means a lot to me.
Last Saturday the Passionettes, a few other demonstrators and guests got together for a Team Training Event in Peterborough. It was organized and run by myself and Bekka and we ended up having a wonderful day. I said it before we are so lucky to have Bekka on board she is a real asset to our team due to her main job. When not a Stampin'Up! demonstrator Bekka is training and developing people and businesses, exactely what we need. The day ended up packed full with training and chatting and swapping and as to be expected crafting, only downside to the day was that it went far too quick, before we knew it it was 4pm and time to go.
Want to see some of the projects?
Because of the fabulous Sale A Bration period all our projects were based on the yummy stamp sets you can earn for free during the promotion period.
Here's a cute little treat holder

Really quick to make and very versatile, you could use it for whatever treat you want, the opening is made with our large Oval punch.
Colours used are yummy ones
Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose and So Saffron the colours of the famous Neapolitan ice cream.
I love how versatile the frames in the Vintage labels set are, perfect layered with other punches or even stamped as a background like showcased here on the pink layer. See the little dangling heart? I love it, so sweet.
We also made a lovely little tote to house some 3x3 thank you notes, as demonstrators we are always on the lookout for nice ideas to use as gifts for our hostesses and this tote would be just the job, in fact if you book a workshop with me during January/February you will get one of those filled with decorated little notes as a thank you( book now!!). Those make excellent gifts for everyone really, we all need to say thank you a lot and what better way than to have some of those made on hand ready to be given away.

Lovely combo of Sage Shadow, Elegant Eggplant and Pale Plum. White satin ribbon adds a touch of elegance and the sweet clip adds a fun accent. This label has to be my favourite one from the set. The sentiment is from the other SAB set Whimsical Words.
Well it looks like wireless is available here everywhere so I have edited my scheduled posts in favour of real blogging, I much prefer it this way. Thank you for visiting me speak soon. Hugs xxx
