There is something miraculous in putting ink to paper. I remember the first time I watched someone stamp a card and was WOWed by the entire process! Twenty years later, I'm still amazed at what you can do with a piece of card stock and an ink pad. That's me, above, at the Stamptacular event held in St. George at the beginning of March.
When stampers get together, we really love swapping...Kristi and Sally, two of the demonstrators in my Stitched Stampers family, are shown above as they swap some of the cute gifts they made during the demonstrator meeting. Kristi later demonstrated the cute box she swapped using the Movers and Shapers die for the Big Shot (just the right size to hold a giant candy bar!):
Sally showed us how to create "One-Eyed-Monsters" (with a mint patty in the middle):
Later in the day, we added some customers...here is Jeni C (right) and her mom at the Stamp-a-Stack card class making the cupcake birthday cards! Mom loved the Big Shot (who wouldn't?)
Sometimes we get lost in the rhythm of stamping and you tune out the world! It's a great feeling to create something beautiful, and Murlynn and Stacy demonstrate the proper focus here:
Next is the Nevada contingency...a really fun group of ladies who came from Mesquite and Las Vegas with Kristi! They really exemplified that "Stamping is more fun with a friend" and we loved having them with us:
And finally, Anne, Shae and Tina create the card keeper...we'll be making this soon in Spanish Fork, so watch for that event TBA soon! Shae was one little creative gal who could draw beautifully :)
My only regret was that I didn't get a shot of Sue, the photographer...next time, next time...
