Lynne's Crafty Day event held on 8th April 2017 - Stampin' Up! #NotOnStage

Hello lovely blog friends and followers, I bet you wondered where I'd got to as I haven't updated for a bit but I've been a bit busy behind the scenes.

Due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to attend the Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Amsterdam this month. It was the very first time I haven't been able to go to a Stampin' Up! #OnStage event in the six and a half years I've been a Demonstrator - and I was gutted. So a month before the event would have been happening in Holland I decided to organise my own small #NotOnStage event for my fellow team mates in the "Pinkie's" to come to mine and have a fun day of crafting, chatting, eating and laughing!

Warning - grab a cuppa as there are quite a lot of pictures :) x

Here are the 3 projects I got them to make during their time with me on the day. I kept them simple, and easy to recreate, and the ladies loved each one for different reasons. Come and have a look....

All of the above projects had stamping, and die cutting, and it kept them all busy for a while but still able to have a good old chat with new and existing demo's. And by the end of the day we all knew each other and had a wonderful time.

The lovely Kelly from Stampin' Up!'s Head Office came along as a spur of the moment decision due to the fact she was due in 4 weeks and wasn't able to attend Amsterdam either. It was so lovely of her to take time out to join us, she even managed to spend some time crafting.

 I made sure every table had sweets, because you always need a sugar fix whilst crafting don't you! And brightened up with a lovely Pink Plant.
 I had also promised to bring along tea/coffee/milk and cakes, so I was up really early in the morning to ensure I got time to make them.
 Here are a few of the lovely ladies who came early to help me set up (including Baz who was taking this picture) and I couldn't have done it without you. And to everyone who stayed afterwards to help me pack up, thanks so much, it made such a difference!

 A few of us "swapping", I love this part of the day when we get to share a little creation we've made.

 And here's the lovely Baz wearing her Stampin' Up! special edition apron as promised - love it!
A selection of samples people had brought in to share ideas, and I was blown away by the different styles and techniques used. I shall be "CASE'ing" (Copy And Share Everything) a few of these and crediting the relevant people.
And finally, here is the "swap" table with all the swaps I had been given from all who wanted to take part - thank you ladies, I love them so much!

I truly had a wonderful day spending my first #NotOnStage with you all. Thank you for making the day a special, fun and memorable one!
