It's been a bit quiet here...

but there has been a good reason for it. I have been out of the Country. I've been in England to be precise. It's been a great trip. Two years ago, my friend Michelle (aka DoodlebirdDesigns) came to visit me. This month I went to visit her! What an adventure!

I was lucky enough to attend the UK Regional event in Telford, UK.  There were 5 of us in the group (the 6th one was a special gift)  And we made roomie gifts.  This was mine.  For some reason, these English people like Hershey Chocolate LOL  so inside their decorated case, was 6 Hershey nuggets, a butterfly note pad (because they are the Butterfly Belles), a mini gel pen and the special gift- a personalized photopolymer stamp with their blog address on it.  They loved them!

 The servers at lunch were really awesome, and when they found out I came all the way from the USA and have never been to the UK before, they let me try a bit of everything for lunch.  This was amazing!  The funniest part was the fact that I don't like nor do I eat cabbage... well when I found out I was eating this "lettuce" looking stuff on my plate-and that it was cabbage, you could have knocked me over with a spoon! I liked it!  there were a few times this trip I've had cabbage-and liked it!]]

                This was the man that helped make it possible for me to attend!  Chris Demo support in Europe.  It was so awesome to be a part of this event.

He was also known as Chris the Catalog that day...and I'm gonna make him International :)

The event was an all day event.  Of course there was PRIZE PATROL!!!  The first one was an everyone wins!  we all won a Stampin' Up! Calculator  That was really cool.

when we registered and checked in, we had to pick a number.  I picked #115.  There were only 3 Prize Patrols.  And Michelle and I won this one (as well as a few other girls I knew).  A new stamp set from the to be released 2015-2016 catalog!  WOO HOO!!!!!!  It included the stamp set AND a pack of the vellum treat bags.  I was a happy demonstrator!


There was lots of business talk, and some comedy.  But this was cool because this picture shows the UK demos who were asked to be on the Design Team for the event.  My friend Michelle was one of them!  So were a few other girls I knew (but just met that day)  the displays were lovely. 

 thanks for stopping by.  This trip has been utterly amazing!  I am looking forward to the new catalog and sharing some new ideas and products 

Happy stampin :)

2015-2016 SNEAK PEEK...

I'm really excited for the upcoming Stampin' Up! Catalog! I just received my hard copy today...and it's hard not to drool all over it! lol One of the things I love about being a demonstrator is the sneak peek I get at the release of new catalogs (annual, spring and holiday) I get to order items ahead of time, and play with them. Today I'm showing you some of the items I got...and most of it was FREE!
I am looking forward to my Catalog kick off in June! stay tuned for projects featuring NEW items.... happy stampin' If you want to earn FREE items, let me know.
