Stampin' Up! training, Telford, UK... and my first ever presentation!

Wow, what a whirl-wind weekend it's was, but boy has it was fun-packed and exciting!

I while back I was secretly asked by Stampin' Up! to present at the regional training in Telford - to which I said YES, of course! I absolutely love these events because I get to meet up with like minded demonstrators from all over the UK and I have formed so many wonderful friendships for which I am very grateful for! I always come home buzzing and on a high with so many ideas, notes and oodles of wonderful memories and photos!

Here are a few of my swaps I made to exchange for other demo's creations. This is a great way to get inspired and share ideas. I also made a matching name badge... and as one of my Team was attending, and this was her very first SU event, I made her a Pink Owl badge, which she loved!




No-one in my team knew I was presenting on Saturday, until this slide went up! and I can tell you there were gasps and then some very loud whistling! (Thank you Pinkies!)

I'm on the right, sitting patiently for my mic to be switched on so I could start! And the vision in white is my partner in crime - the lovely Gina Connor who was up after me. Great to meet you Gina, and thanks for you support. (picture credit - Lucy Tustian)
I was demoing several background techniques. Now I'll admit, it's not a new thing, but I wanted to show how simple and easy it really is to do... and I got plenty of ooooohs and aaaaaahs, which made me smile, and James our cameraman was just awesome at zooming in making sure everyone could see what I was doing.
You can see on the screen my technique in full flow...I'm so glad I had time to paint my fingernails... LOL.
Here are two of the finished cards I made to show what it could look like.... what do you think??


I hope you like what I made... I'd love to hear your comments - it makes me go all warm and fuzzy!

But stay tuned to my blog as I am going to be very brave (especially since I've now been on stage and presented to over 300 demonstrators!!!|) and make a video showing you how to do each of these backgrounds... so that you can then give it a go - you'll be hooked once you try!

  8. Hello Eveline - so pleased you like the technique. I hope to do the video shortly!

    Nicky - Thank you! I really enjoyed doing it and I'm so pleased people are actually giving it a go! I surprised myself at how relaxed and calm I was - I think I've turned a very huge corner because I am normally a gibbering wreck! Now I know I can do ANYTHING I put my mind to...
