The Open House was a Success!

I had my first Stampin' Up! Open House to kick off my recent demonstratorship. It was last Saturday, and I think it turned out really well. I had a good group of ladies, ALMOST as excited as I am! We made 3 different projects, had yummy refreshments, placed orders and booked workshops. I can't wait to get the projects together for those. Here are pictures of the projects we made last week. The others are pictures of the door prizes I gave away during the Open House. Just the beginning I hope.

Happy Stamping!

The two door prizes below were made just using the Stamp Around stamp-Forever Flowers and the Scallop Punch!

This one, I used the Scallop Punch, Spring Sillhouettes Designer Paper and the Together Forever stamp set.

The World of Rubber Stamping...

Stamping isn't just for cards anymore!

As of last week, I'm officially a Stampin' Up Demonstrator! I cannot wait until my first Open House on Feb 23rd. I'm so excited to share my new hobby with everyone. It's kind of an extension of Scrapbooking and my love of Photography. It's another way of displaying photos since you can make a custom mats, photo albums, etc to match the decor in your home or make a sweet keepsake for someone special. I've always loved scrapbooking as well and now I can try new ways of preserving my memories.

The photos I've uploaded are just a couple samples I made while playing around with what I had. Who knew you could "stamp" candles!? I'm definitely looking forward to mass producing these. I also made a little gift set (card, post-it note holder & pen) to go with a friend's birthday present, but I think it's a great idea to use for door prizes as well...Hmmm

Something to look forward to for those that are attending my Open House! =)

Gotta Run! More brainstorming and playing to be done!

Happy Stamping Everyone!
