Of course, there is always good food to snack on at these events. The morning offered chocolate croissants, fruit and cranberry/orange scones. Lunch was delicious platters of sandwiches, wraps, veggies, chips and of course all the left-overs from the morning. Dinner was pizza, wings and salad and any leftovers from the morning and afternoon. We also had beverages throughout the day, so everything a busy stamper could want and need in order to be productive!
I set out for the day with three tasks that HAD TO be completed. I did bring a fourth one though, just in case I needed it. I'm happy to report I was successful. I got everything I set out to do done. I didn't get to my fourth project; but, that's okay since I don't need it until November!
One of the tasks for the day was coming up with a swap idea to do at the playdate. You might wonder what a swap is or how it works. It's really simple actually. Demonstrators commit to participating in the swap and once the numbers are finalized, each participant sets out to make a card for each of them. The same card design is given to each participant as a way to inspire ideas among one another. As a demonstrator and stamping enthusiast, I'm always looking for new design ideas, and swaps are a fun way to get them. For the day's event, we had 6 sign up for the swap.
Here are the swaps I received from other demonstrators:
|Design by Rosalina using a variety of|
Dies for the Big Shot
|Touch of Kindness from the Summer Mini|
|Jennifer Tinline's Fabulous Florets, Petite Pairs|
|Designed by Shirley, using Snow Much Fun|
|Christmas card using Bells & Boughs by Wendy|
|Stamp Set: Baroque Motifs, Colours: Crumb Cake,|
Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Melon Mambo
Technique: Heat Emboss, Paper Tearing
We even surprised Jennifer with a birthday cupcake!
Overall we had a great day! I can't wait to do it again.
