Post Convention Joyful Heart Stampers Breakfast

In case you were unable to join us on Saturday, I thought you’d like to see a little of what went on!

First we enjoyed a delicious breakfast at the Mountain Gate Restaurant!  There were 35 of us present out of a group of 112 demonstrators from all over the country.  I think that is incredible.  Sheila Miller and her visiting friend Rhoda won a prize for coming the farthest—almost 4 hours I think!


Our theme this year is GROW so I made these flower pots with our Designer Series Paper strips to cover the pots, then the flowers were made by Marie and I with our New In Colors.  Malachi Corrugated and Shredded more DSP for the grass and then I covered the little shovel and rake handles with dsp.  A little lady bug inspired by my dear friend Bonnie, finishes off the flower arrangement.  These were given to all the presenters—see below.


We enjoyed some fabulous card swapping!  It was intense around there for a few minutes!

Our Presentors:

Angela Ogelsby: presented some ideas with the treat cups, candy wrapper die; Marie Gruber: some ideas with embossing satin ribbon on our embossing folders/with a little hairspray; Deb Paisie:some more ideas with extending the candy wrapper die, decorating with our punches, other candy ideas, a great cut-out sign for our entrance; and Sondra Jumper: lots of cute little gift ideas for hostesses, for favors and more.  Thank you ladies for doing such a great job! I showed some ideas we learned using our punches—some out-of-the ordinary things (I will try to get a video made before the end of the week to show you what all we learned—don’t know how else to show everyone!) also, had to show our fabulous new Stampin’ Score –along with some of the features and benefits of this exciting new product.

I love how quickly and easily you can create something like this, that looks like it would be so difficult—no more measuring!

















Would you like to see some of our Make and Take Projects?


This card was done with our Christmas Stocking set from next month’s Holiday Mini—watch for your’s in the mail the end of this month or get it at one of my classes.










Our With Gratitude set done with our new Stampin’ Score and some Fall Dsp that will be out next month.









Another new set, Christmas Lodge using our Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder, then our new “stickles’ type glitter glue.  The DSP is the new Frostwood Lodge DSP.


And last but not least, our Strength and Hope fundraiser stamp (only available yet this month) along with the flowers from Language of Friendship # 122752 punched with our Boho Blossoms punch.  Colors are Pink Pirouette, Basic Grey and white.  Butterfly embossed with white emboss powder.  Grey marker to ink only the top of the word stamp—then repeated again. 

Hope you enjoyed this little tour of the team meeting.  Make sure you put it on your calendar so you don’t miss our next, Christmas Dinner Meeting on December 3rd, at Christ Church in Littlestown.
