Stampin' Up! Regionals

The Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar was held in Seattle April 17-18, and I attended today's session. This was my first SU! event, and I was excited to go. I met Shelli Gardner, co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up! as well as fellow demonstrators from Washington, Oregon, Canada and other places far and away. I had fun swapping cards with other demos and learning different techniques. This was an informative and fun seminar and from what I hear, just a sneak-peak of Convention!

Check out the following link to see some of the cool projects I saw:

365 cards, April 11

I reading over the day's challenge and decided to use the same stamp set I had used for the previous day's challenge (mainly because I already had it right in front of me *wink*). I love this Baroque Motifs stamp set more and more each time I use it. I think it's so elegant.

The Stampin' Up! Seattle Regional Seminar is this Friday and Saturday, and I'm excited. I'll be at the Saturday session. It'll be my first SU! event as a demonstrator and can't wait to play the products and meet other demos. Wish me luck on getting my swaps finished!

365 Cards, April 10

Better late than never! I worked overtime everyday last week, including Saturday, which is why I was not able to stamp and post sooner. Then, Duncan, Benjamin and I headed to La Conner, WA, to spend Easter with my mother-in-law. Everything was wonderful, except for the miserable rain. But I'm back at home and stamped a bit before beginning another 40-plus-hour work week.

The challenge for this day was to use 5 flowers on the project. I always wanted to put some little embellishments on the ends of this stamp, and this challenge was perfect for it.
