I have started a new program for my downline, and I am really excited for it. It is for my Direct Recruits and for members of my levels 2-5 who are Supervisors or higher. Basically, this event will be held every quarter and if those who have the previously mentioned qualifications, have met a specific sales mark, they get to come to a free stamp night hosted by me. The projects we will make are fun, fresh projects.
Last night I held the first stamp night. I had so much fun! There were 7 ladies there - my upline Sherri, 4 directs, and 2 from the levels 2-5. This is the project we made. I fell in love with the one Ashley made here, and I think the original idea came from UStamp. She couldn't post the directions, so I set to figuring it out. Not as easy doing it by a picture, as having it in hand, and I don't know if mine was done the same way, but I am happy with the results either way. The bag holds a couple cards, eve lopes, and a beaded pen. We used the Season of Joy stamp set + two other Christmas verses. I love the Vanilla Hodgepodge frame.
This card actually came from parts left over from this card, (also created by Ashley). I thought it would make a nice Christmas card. It's colors are Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White.
The next card is a "Deborah Original". It uses Kiwi Kiss Cardstock, the Designer Series Paper is the Muirfield. The Chocolate circle was punched using the new 1 3/4" Circle Punch and then layered onto the metal edge circle tag, and then topped off with some Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon! Love that stuff! I think I will use Chocolate Craft ink and Clear embossing powder on the verse when I make up the extras. I think that will add some more texture to it.Beaded Pens are one of my most favorite projects. Simple, yet stunning-fits all my requirements! If you would like to learn how to make these pens, lets book a workshop and I will be glad to show you and your friends...you know you want one of these pens!
I am already planning the next meeting. And, I know the girls are also looking forward to it. I love it when we can get together as Stampin Sisters and enjoy each others company, build new friendships, and '...share what we love...' -Stamping. What a perfect evening.
