Weekend Classes, Oh What Fun!

I had a weekend full of classes! On Saturday I held my monthly Central Florida Stampers Class in Oviedo with my friend Debra LaFountaine. We had a total of 38 stampers who made the cards below.

Then on Sunday, I teamed up again with Debra and we held the first of our two Spring Shadow Box classes. Take a look at their happy faces after completing their projects!

Amelia, Rita, Debbie, Fran, Janine, Birgitt, Sheila, and Diane had a great time. Diane made one for her and another as a gift. I just love helping everyone create something they can be proud of making, great job everyone!

1st Class of the Year, One of Many Firsts!

Today was my very first class of the year. This year will have many firsts,

  • the first week without a corporate job
  • the first week of my full-time Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator career
  • the first time I’ll be scheduling daytime classes
  • the first time I will hold Mommy & Me or Grown Up & Me, classes (I’m still working on the name since I do not want to exclude Dads and Grandparents, suggestions welcome!)
  • the first time I’ll be recording a FaceBook live class
  • the first time I will be recording virtual classes
  • the first time I have more time to create and record videos
  • the first time I will be traveling to Europe!!

I’m so excited for all these firsts! Of course, they will involve a lot of work, but as Confucius says;  “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”.

My friend Debra LaFountaine and I held our first monthly Central Florida Stampers class and thank goodness she remembered to take photos right after the setup!

May you have many Happy Firsts throughout the year!

What did you do on World Card Making Day?

World Card Making Day (WCMD) is held each year on the first Saturday of every October, and kicks-off the start of the holiday card-making season. It’s a day for the card-making community, all of us; hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers. We can unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card-making.

For the past 3 years my friends and I (Stampin’ Amigas) have been hosting a World Card Making Day event in Oviedo, FL. We had 50 stampers stamping away making their greeting cards and having loads of fun! Each stamper made 8 cards (see below) and we gave away over 20 door prizes. We also raffled off all the products on a page of the Annual Stampin’ Up catalog.

In addition to the WCMD activities a few stampers and all my Stampin’ Amigas wore Pink to #StandUpToCancer and #JoinTheFlock!

Here are the cards our stampers made on WCMD:
