Celebrating a fantastic downline

When I decided I was ready to help other people run a Stampin' Up business, I chose to name my prospective team 'the INKredibles' and little did I know how apt that name would be. My team really are the most incredible bunch and I am in awe of their collective talent, creativity and energy. I was lucky enough to get together with a few of them last weekend at a Stampin' Up demonstrator-only event in Telford, and we had a brilliant time! Here we are at the end of a busy day:

Inkredibles (from left to right) Victoria Jeffries, Jacqueline Dee, me and Helen White
Do go and check out their blogs and leave them some love: Victoria at Furry Tale Cards and Crafts; Jacqueline at Deezinesart (you may know her as founder of the Make My Monday and CAS Colours and Sketches challenges); and last but not least, Helen at TiaraHelen.

Badges of honour
I'd made some gifts for these special ladies:


Badges made with card stock and copper tape (the stuff you put round plant pots to deter slugs and snails!) that ran beautifully through my Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. I punched out bird shapes using the 2-step Bird Punch, glued them together and gave them a pin on the back. The badges were presented on a tag cut with the Two Tags Bigz die, stamped with the lovely Take Care stamp set and finished with the glorious stitched satin ribbon in Gumball Green, tied up with a little linen thread. And yes, I know it looks as if we're called 'the inky birds' but that's not quite as classy!

Fun and Freebies
Some of you have asked what we got up to at Telford. Well, it was a chance to have plenty of giggles, meeting up with like-minded people, many of whom have become friends over the last three years; we swapped items we'd made which always revs up our creativity; there were wonderful displays of creations using current and new products, inspiring presentations on stage and some exciting pieces of news from Stampin' Up (which have to stay under wraps for the moment!); we had a delicious hot lunch, did some crafting together (well some of us did LOL!), enjoyed the excitement of freebies being handed out randomly throughout the day and finally were all given a gorgeous new stamp set!
