Stampin' Up

My first experience

Last night I went along for the first time to a Stampin' Up event.

If you enjoy making cards or indulging in papercraft of any kind I strongly recommend you go along to one of these events if you ever get the chance. 
The demonstrator at the event was a lovely lady called Jayne of Jaynescraftycorner who brought along plenty of examples of cards and other items made using Stampin' Up products.

The range of goodies includes beautiful co-ordinating papers, stamps, inks and pens, as well as punches, ribbons, embossing equipment, buttons and brads to name but a few.

The Stampin' Up slogan is 'Inspire, Create, Share' and Jayne certainly did all three.

She demonstrated how to make a beautiful birthday card and then gave each of us a pack of materials so that we could have a go at making one of our own.

It was a very enjoyable way to spend an evening. We all had great fun. You can probably imagine the giggling and chatter that went on while eight of us were trying to put together our creations.  

Mine turned out rather well I think. But, to be honest, the products are such good quality and are so easy to use that you can't really go far wrong. 

At the end of the evening we had an opportunity to look through the current Stampin' Up catalogue (A papercrafter's sweetie shop) and order any products that had grabbed our attention during the evening. 

My friend received a gift for hosting the party and earned credits to spend on Stampin' Up products. Very worthwhile.

Also available via the website are digital downloads and online classes. So much inspiration.
