Acorny Thank You for Team Training Today

Today was Team Training for the Stampin' STYlettes and here at The Crafty oINK Pen, we gathered together to Share, Inspire and Create …. oh and Talk, Laugh and Eat Cake.

The morning was spent catching up on various Business topics to help focus each of us on the direction we personally choose to follow with our Demonstratorship, leaving the afternoon to Craft.

Although many of us Demonstrators design and create our own projects to share within our events, we do receive odd suggested projects from the Stampin' Up! Home Office through a dedicated website for Demonstrators. These Nutty Notecards shown here, was one of them. 

I chose to highlight to the ladies how resources at our fingertips can be adapted to create a project of our own. I saw some clever adaptation of the Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Box on Pinterest to house a selection of Christmas Cards and thought it was a perfect idea for this little set. The cards I chose to use were your standard C6 size cards. 

Acorny Thank you Stamp set couples beautifully with not only the Acorn Builder Punch, but also the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper. 

Here I showed the girls how you can sponge the patterned papers to generate a slightly different feel and colour, rather than spritz. We then added extra embellishments with some gorgeous Wooden Elements and some Ribbon found in our Clearance Rack (Daffodil Delight). 

Into the Woods Elements are just gorgeous and add a real textured dimension. You can add ink to generate yet more colour and depth to them if you wish.

This mini project was a small gift packet with Notecard and Business Card Gift Tag. 

We've had a lovely day and I'm so lucky to have such a lovely team of ladies. A welcoming group, with plenty of laughter and chit chat, as well as crafting and sharing of tips and techniques. Its the friendships that we build that I love about being a part of Stampin' Up!
