Stampin' Up! Crafting Evening

On Wednesday evening, I held my first Stampin' Up! 'Crafting Class' for a group of friends - most of whom have never crafted or stamped before, so it took me a while to decide what projects to put together for them all to make.  I've never demonstrated anything before so this was a good test to see how smoothly or otherwise it would go and to get some feedback for future classes.  To be honest, I have always dreaded having to speak in public, but as they are all mates I had no fear because if it all went horribly wrong (and why would it Wendy?!!) we would all laugh about it!  But as crafting is such a passion and something I could do all day long and because I LOVE using Stampin' Up! products,  I was actually really looking forward to it........

And this is what we made..

All my friends did really well although the Gold Encore inkpad caused them a few problems....at one point the stamp we were using looked like a gold nugget as it had been bashed into the pad and absorbed most of the ink....'tap it gently' I kept telling them!

My husband made himself scarce for the evening as I think 6 giggling women was too much for him but he did bake us all an absolutely delicious lardy cake - he's brilliant when it comes to baking.  Thank you to Dawn, Caroline, Eileen, Lisa and Debs for a great evening.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself and all my friends did too and they are now asking when the next class is.....I think I need a few weeks to recover and time to order a refill for my gold inkpad!!

Have a great weekend everybody.

If you live local to Buxton in Derbyshire and would be interested in coming to a class, please get in touch.  My details are on the contact page.
