Boot Camp, Blendabilities, Card inspiration, Stampin Connection, Free Products, and Friends are why I love being a Stampin Up Demonstrator


we were asked to see what we could get done in 15 min.
it's open to all active Stampin Up demonstrators
please join us

Basics for Beginners
Smokey Slate Assortment 
found on page 212
of our new Stampin' Up! 

then stamp the Thank You 
stamp that we received FREE 
at Convention 2014

using Memento Pad 
found on page 212

I set up my class supplies in a bin like this

I saw this card on Stampin Connection
this card was made by  Dena Rekow 

Stampin Connection is a place online
for demonstrators to share their ideas

for this one stamp set called Big News 
Page 68
there are 44 samples of how it is used

The other set called Flower Patch 
page 156
Has 247 samples

the sample below was created by Erin McFarlane

These two cards game me inspiration for this card
it's simple stamping
and two step stamping for the leaves.

It's a clear Photopolymer set 
which allows you to stamp the second image over 
the first one with ease and accuracy!

this set is $29.95

So far in the class I will have taught basic stamping
and two step stamping

next I'm teachng
simple heat embossing

Jeanna Bohannon's card from our
Late Night Stamper event at convention
was the inspiration

 Here is my easy version

to make this card my customers
will stamp and embossing using white powder.
Then they will color over the dots with
the Blendabilities
found on page 212
Using the Coastal Cabana Assortment

Then they will stamp the words 
and cut it out using a Big Shot 
and the Banners FRAMELITS

they will stamp the butterfly and punch it out
using the Elegant Butterfly punch on page 219

then finish the butterfly with Rhinestones Basic Jewels
found on page 209

This is how my bins look all set up and ready for my guests

I love my big shot
Did you know

last year of Late Night Stamper events before Convention each year

 Denise stamped this box last year and gave it to me
I brought it back this year and gave it to Pam Hodges 

Angel has stamped with us as an instructor for years

she and her team of demonstrators always  come up with great projects

These three friends are showing off Penny and Tami's project
We love our friends who come and stamp with us each year!

Punch Art is a favorite among stampin friends
and Michelle's team came up with this great Project 
to show off what we can do with these fun punches!

Robin created another great project for us.
She has been an instructor with us for quite a few years as well.

Kelly's fun project

Jarmila's topiary

Penny, Tami, Kay, Sherrill, Jarmila, and Pat 

I am so thankful for all of my friends who come teach each year
I just wish I had pictures of all of you!!!

Jeanna, Misty and I prepared this cute project above 

Thanks to Bea Redd for all the photos she took at our event. 
I didn't even bring my camera LAME I Know

Call me crazy
this is what I did with my old versamark pads

Cool isn't it!

this was a wow idea I taught
where you ink up a versamark pad
or white craft pad with Stampin Up ink refills

They make the most amazing cards!

I waited until the versamark was old and inky before I put regular ink on it
but now that I know I like it so much 
I may have to just buy a few more new pads and ink 
refills to make some other color combinations!

As soon as I get photos of our other wonderful instructors I'll add them!

the photo above is from last year
at our 80's party

Sherrill, Penny, Tami, and Jarmila
These ladies have been with me for a very vary long time
I am soooo appreciative of them

they are why this years event were as organized as great they were
and why there were so many door prizes!!!!

Thanks Kay Pat Tami Penny Jarmila and friends
 for the Birthday Dinner
it was such a surprise!

Thanks friend
YOU are the BEST!!!

May God bless you and your family,
Sherrill Graff
