Crop, Swap and Talk

Shoebox Swap-001Is your new stack of Stampin’ Up! products calling you to create something fabulous and fun. How about sharing one of your creations at a Hand Stamped Greeting Card Shoebox Swap?

You cut the supplies for your greeting card enough times for everyone else to make it. Pack those supplies along with stamps, inks and any hardware needed for card completion into a shoebox sized container. Everyone else does the same thing as well.

Then, during the Shoebox Swap, go around to the stations and create each others’ fabulous projects. Everyone brings their own adhesives. You go home with lots of designs and good ideas to use current products.

Sound like a fun evening? Then join us on Monday, April 20th, 6-8pm. I’ll be in the room by 4pm so you are welcome to bring your dinner and use the time from 4-6pm as you wish for other cropping projects.

Fall Fling Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Gathering

fallflingfbbanner-001

Would you like to enjoy a day with other Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, stamping fabulous projects, talking about the latest products and sharing business tips? Fall Fling is Saturday, September 15th, 9am-4:30pm in Sun Prairie. Sun Prairie is located about 10 minutes from the east side of Madison, Wisconsin, USA.

The morning activity is a shoebox swap. You design a card and then prepare card kits so that other demonstrators at the event stamp and assemble your kits. Everyone else prepares kits too. We pass the supplies used for assembling the kits in shoebox sized containers. Thus, it is called a shoebox swap.

Lunch is through a group Jimmy John’s order or bring your own. Link will be provided closer to the event date.

The afternoon activities include make-n-takes which you only need to provide your adhesives for and demonstrations which you get to sit back and watch.  The day ends with business talks.

Early bird registration closes on August 16th with all registration closing on August 23rd so we have enough time to prepare our projects.

Swaps are tracked through a Doodle poll. Click here to register your swaps.

Please click the Contact button above to request a registration form and to RSVP.

Thanks and hope to stamp with you then!
