I am so excited to share with you some pictures from our weSTAMP meeting last night! Nancy Riley and I team up with our downline members each month for an evening of Stamping, Swapping, SILLINESS (see picture below….) and Seriously Sweet-Treats! We had a fun evening.

You, too, can be a part of our weSTAMP group! Local or distant, you can join our group by signing up to be a demonstrator. As a matter of fact, there is a great incentive to join now. You can sign up for only $99! Please contact me and I can give you more details on this. We’d love to have you join our weSTAMP group!

Here we are with our dracula teeth, which was part of Tara’s swap.


Our focus at tonight’s meeting was hands on experience using the Big Shot. Ginny did a demonstration for us, along with an AWESOME make and take. We made these small folders that tell about the Big Shot. Inside you find folder pockets to hold some examples of things the Big Shot can do. We used MANY materials on the Big Shot tonight, including: designer paper, cardstock, cork, felt, vinyl, soda cans, and all kinds of fabric.

Here is a picture of our make and take. THANK YOU GINNY for a very informative and FUN project!

Leah was in charge of our 3-mn. demo this evening. She showed us all how to use the bleaching technique. Here is an example of what we got to make with the bleaching technique. This was an excellent technique to learn, that was new to most of us!

The door prize was made by Tara Hilde. Isn’t it beautiful? It is a backpack showcasing the Bella Rose DP. Inside was an altered clip. I was the LUCKY WINNER!!!!!! I was so excited to receive this! THANKS TARA!!!
