Team congratulations and welcome gifts

Each month I send congratulations cards and gifts to some of my team members, including the three who have the highest sales and highest number of recruits. Here are this month's top 3 card designs:

I have also had 6 brand new team members since January, and each of them receives a welcome pack.

I also send out individual cards to team members for other achievements - these can vary from helping someone out, to holding their first class or attending a new event.

 As you can see there is a blue theme running throughout - that's our team colours - Bermuda Bay (please don't retire these Stampin' Up!). To find out more about joining our team, just contact me for more information.

It's All Hot Air !

I hope you like my title today. It is so hard to come up with interesting, eye catching titles, but I thought this was rather fun for my February class name too. Below I share with you 2 of the 3 projects we will be making.

More #coffeeandcard samples

I love that my #coffeeandcard events are going from strength to strength, it's a great atmosphere and a chance for everyone to meet others, craft and enjoy the company of like-minded people!

Last week we used the FREE stamp set Avant Garden, and I was amazed at all the different variations we came up with. I chose a limited colour palette - that of the Designer Series Paper 'Blooms and Wishes', so everyone worked within that, using either Whisper White or Crumb Cake as the card base.

Here are some of the finished projects:

This is the stamp set - one of those you can get for FREE until 31st March 2017.  Just place an order for any products to a total of £45 or more, and you can choose this as your free item. There are plenty more to choose from if flowers aren't your thing!

Recognition from Stampin' Up! Old news is new news

Stampin' Up! make a point of rewarding their Demonstrators in a number of areas annually - sales, recruiting and leadership. I was delighted to get into the top 10 in the UK in the following categories:

Number 9 Demonstrator overall in the UK
Number 4 Demonstrator for recruiting in the UK

So this all happened last November at our OnStage event in Telford, and last week I received the personalised jacket that is sent to anyone who achieved a top 10 placement in their country.  We had a choice of pink or grey - I opted for the grey as you can see.

So a big thanks, once again to my customers, team and supporters for getting me there.  All I have to do now is improve my position this year...

A week of Valentines' cards

There is no need to guess what cards we made this week at #coffeeandcard
if you have read the title of this post.

Although I knew that not everyone would want to make Valentines cards, the images we used were perfect for anniversary cards too. The first two photos were taken at our Towcester venue, and the final two were taken at our Brackley venue.

Aren't they all fabulous? We used the stamp set "Sealed with Love" and the heart frames and the word 'love' you can see were from the Framelits set called "Sunshine Wishes".  Details of both are below - click on either photo below for more information.
Thanks for popping by today.
