Here is Bec and her table.
The lovely Fiona, who will sadly be moving to Townsville at the end of the year, and her table.
This is the table that I 'taught'. Whilst I guided them through our 6 cards, they were very independent - they had to be with my developing a growing attraction to the microphone - who would have ever guessed - not me! Even our newest cardmaker in this group did a wonderful job - I didn't even guess it was her first time making cards! I just love how we can show people how easy it is to create something beautiful.
Here is our lovely Jen Fraser's table. Jen also had one of her newest demonstrators, Jerry, assisting us all with raffle ticket sales as well as judging the card competition with Orrell. We are very appreciative of both their efforts.
Multitalented and Mutitasking Amanda did a wonderful job, whilst her husband Nathan held the fort with the children, ,discovering the wonders of the Carina Leagues Club Kid's Room.
Felicity and Megan did a great job with their lovely table.
Robyn did a sterling job, holding the fort after out lovely Loren had a rather unfortunate accident on the way to our event. With a brace and crutches, Loren thought about coming on later! Thankfully she did decide to rest up - we certainly missed her and were terribly worried, however, Robyn worked wonderfully to look after her own plus Loren's lovely friend.
Here is Bec and her table. Next week Bec is the hostess of the event at Pine Rivers Bowls Club! We are really looking forward to it and if you have not yet been to this event, please do contact me urgently as whilst we are at capacity, we may be able to squeeze you in! One of Bec's demonstrator team members, Orrell, generously helped us on the day, and we are very grateful for her efforts also.
Here is our lovely Jenny Wells, with her ladies busy creating their masterpieces. I was just amazed at the organisation of this group of ladies, who are clearly experienced craft retreat people - the tools, the lunch esky and snacks were impressive!
Karen did a great job teaching her group of ladies and it was lovely to have them all there to share a great day.
You can see why I love Stampin' Up! Products so much! Did you notice how the Grosgrain Ribbon perfectly matches the Artichoke Brads! There is no way this would be possible from a random stash of craft materials, no matter how huge.
If you would like any further information on how I made this ornament, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
My friend and fellow demonstrator, Robyn, had great fun teaching the cards to a very talented and enthusiastic group of ladies.
Kate did a marvellous job, although I had to go check regularly to make sure she wasn't getting up to any mischief! Just in case you are reading this Kate, I am joking!
I love being behind the camera as it offers protection from me being in the photo. However, since I was splashing everyone elses photo on my blog, it was only fair to appear in one photo with my lovely group of ladies - thank you for making it such a great day!

Another of Deanne's cards was made from the 'Simple Delights' Simply Sent Card Kit. Look at how the 'Cherished Memories' Rub Ons have added to the texture of the card. Deanne has also coloured the Pretties Kit flower with a Bashful Blue Marker and spread the colour using an Aqua Painter.
The Simply Sent Kits are already terrific value, because they contain everything you need to create your cards, including pre cut cardstock, inks, adhesives and tools such as Stampin' Write Markers and 2 way Glue Pens (the tools vary according to the kit purchased).

What better way to finish off this post by showing you the lovely cakes that my hostess Rae made for the workshop. Don't they look gorgeous in white - I can let you know that they tasted delicious too! Keep posted for some more clever ways to get 'double duty' from your Stampin' Up! products.
