Stampin up Workshop Today!

I have been busy over the last week thinking of projects for a stampin up project today. My buddy Kirsty Wiseman put me in touch with a lovely lady called Ann who asked me to hold a workshop in her local pub, initially ot was 8...maybe 10 people.I loved the idea of dusting off my craft supplies and getting stuck-in again, I have been so pre occupied with my new business I haven't had time to paper craft and have missed it so much.

Paper crafting for me is my stress relief, love it...

I decided, as it was a group of ladies who love the Stamp Up punches that I would do 2 projects using lots of different punches,this is a bit ambitious because when I arrived Ann told me there were a few more people than she expected.....there ended up being 19! I was soooo happy Kirsty came along for moral support, I couldn't have done it without her..and not forgetting my lovely daughter and trusty assistant Lady K ..she was amazing, rushing around, showing people what to do and getting what they needed.
Firstly I made a hostess gift for Ann, I don't have a picture but it was a bag in a box filled with chocky eclairs.
Here is one of the make and take projects, a stamped triangle box like an old fashioned jubly....sorry about the pic it was a little squished on the way home. Love this stamp set from the spring mini catalogue, only available until the end of Aug!

 And we made a little box, lots of folding but all the pieces were scored ready to go to make the class easier.

I'm feeling inspired again, thanks to all the lovely ladies who made me feel so welcome, I was really nervous but I shouldn't have been they were all lovely.
