Fabulous time at Hamilton Regionals!

Share |

What an amazingly awesome day I had in Hamilton yesterday: stamping & swapping & sharing & learning & laughing & eating & visiting old friends & making new friends and...and... well, I just had a blast!

Stampin' Up! demonstrators sure know how to have fun, as evidenced from this picture of myself, CEO and co-founder Shelli Gardner and some my fabulous downline "Canadians, INK!" gals. Don't we look so snazzy in our proud red?

(Many thanks to Dina for this photo -- mine turned out terribly)

We learned some really cool trick and techniques from the WOW presentations, saw a hilarious workshop demo from my friend Glenda Travelstead. Too bad she's American - as an upline she must be awesome and I would have signed up under in a heartbeat if I'd ever been to a party with her!

Regionals really are a blast: imagine about 400 crazy stamping women laughing it up and having fun together. I got to meet some of my downline who live up in Northern Ontario (hi Stephanie & Irene), ran into someone I went to highschool with (hi Kory), and loads of other demo buddies who I only get to see maybe once or twice a year at SU events.

I also ran into Stampin' Palooza peeps, some of whom I'll see this weekend at our Holiday Blitz event. I'm getting super excited about that, because it's one more time to stamp and have fun together...only this time I get to put it all together and spoil my guests - WOOT!

But even more fun maybe was when I'd have people I didn't know come up and tell me they recognized my name from my blog -- how fun is that?! Here's a shout out to you... my faithful blog readers. Love you, and you're all so much a reason why I love my Craftin' Caro site so much :) Be sure to leave a comment below if I ran into any of you on Saturday!

All this leads up of course to saying I LOVE BEING A DEMONSTRATOR! I have hobby demos and business demos on my team, and lots more in the middle of the two extremes who do this for some fun spending money and a great discounts on their stamping & scrapping supplies.

Don't forget my fabulous promotion right now: buy the Starter Kit through me and get not only the awesome Greenhouse Gala tote bag, but you'll get a brand new not-yet-released EAT CHOCOLATE stamp set!

See here for more details or contact me to learn how you can order yours before the promotion ends.

Here's the 3rd and final video showing some techniques that you can do using the customizable starter kit -- enjoy!

Xmas Card Camp #1 and Hamilton Regionals

Share |

Nothing says HAPPINESS like a full day of stamping with friends! And I'm extra spoiled since Stampin' Up! is coming to Hamilton (close enough to Toronto for me!) for an all day Regionals Event.

And so, I'm leaving my handsome hubby Big Shot Brent in charge of running my Holiday 10 Card camp today and running off with my "big sis" Christyne for fun, chocolate and STAMPING!

I have about 85 general cardfronts to swap out plus an extra bunch for my fabulous Canadians, INK team mates. It should be a BLAST! ETA: My "Bambi" card was CASE'd off of Wendie Waldman's card...I saw it on Stampin' Connection and loved the concept! :)

If you want to learn more about becoming a demo and joining in on the fun, check out the awesome EAT CHOCOLATE and tote promotion going on right now... would love to have you join us :)

If you're in Canada, contact me to learn more about ordering YOUR kit today to take advantage of these great deals!

In the meantime, here's the video for Starter Kit Technique #2 - Stampin' Around and Rock & Roll :

Holiday 10 card class sample #1

Share |

This gorgeous Very Vanilla monochromatic card was inspired by one I received from the fabulous Penny Thomas from Katy, TX as part of our Founders Circle card swaps. I may have switched it out to a Christmas theme, but the inspiration goes all to her!

The key here is in the layers: layers on layers of Very Vanilla, laying flat or raised with Stampin' Dimensionals, either plain or embossed using the Elegant Lines folder.

It's a very easy card to create but WOW...simply wow!

This is one of the 10 cards you'll be making as part of our next Holiday 10 Card Camp. If you're in Toronto, you can choose to come on Saturday at either 1pm or 4pm (facilitated by Big Shot Brent) or Monday at 1pm.

Please RSVP if you would like to attend!
