Finally catching up again. I took Bess to her socialisation class this morning, then went visiting my parents and then DH and I have been to the cinema to see Inception (fantastic film, lots of layers to it, if you enjoyed Memento (same Director) then I think you'll enjoy this one too though there's more action and special effects in it). The film was my little treat after all the preparation for yesterday's big event.
My amazing downline Jan and I held our full day Summer Stamptacular and it really was a fantastic day with such a lovely bunch of ladies.
We set everything out in advance for them with little nameplates and bottled water with choccie in the hanger. Then when they came in we gave them each a goodie bag that included the Tree for All Seasons stamp set and a decorated notebook.
Our first project was a boxed set of all occasion cards, with one for each season:
The boxed set
After lunch they worked on Jan's project of a scrapbook in a box. I don't have pix of the finished project so I'll steal them from Jan's blog just as soon as she's posted them. Here are the ladies though, don't let the big smiles fool you - we worked them all very hard.
Our final project for the day was a matching card and gift bag
The bag's big enough to take a set of A6 cards and envelopes.
There was also a bonus waterfall card project that I'd prepared just in case we ran out of things to do, lol. We didn't get time to make it, but they all took the instructions and materials home to finish as homework ;-)
Jan and I so enjoyed the day that we're already talking about organising another, though I think we'll catch our breath first, lol. I'll post details when we decide on a date.
