Stampin' Fun & Lolly Frocks

Throughout the year Stampin' Up! holds regional training events in various parts of the country but this weekend saw Stampin' Up! 's first ever all UK Regional event  which was held in Telford. Similar events are taking place across the European market countries and European demonstrators had the choice to go to any or all events in Europe.

It was amazing...hundreds of demos from all corners of the land gathered at The International Centre in Telford for a fun filled day of networking and sharing. It was great to catch up with old friends and to meet new people ...including the fabulous Chris from European demo support who helps us with all our queries online and on the phone.  Chris was a star, patiently standing before hundreds of cameras as we clamoured to meet and have our photo taken with our helpful hero.

As part of the day we were given some sneak peeks at some exciting things coming soon from Stampin' Up! but for now our lips must remain sealed...  but its all good and I promise its all well worth waiting for....

No big Stampin' Up! event is complete without prize patrol and I was lucky enough to be one of the winners of the first round prize patrol... Watch this space for some sneaky peeks of my fabulous prize...

As always swaps are an important part of any gathering of Stampin' Up! demos and this was no different - although the practicalities of making 350 swaps was a bit beyond many of us, we still did our best and I brought home some beautiful swapped projects.

For my swaps  I made some little treat holders
 that I named Lolly Frocks . 
They are little boxes hidden behind the dress skirts made using the dress up framelits.
 A little lollipop sits into the box and the lolly stick
 comes up through the neckline. A stamped layered
 label forms the dolly face on the lolly frocks.

If you would like to know more about what you need and how to make these little treats holders or you would like to join the fun and become part of the Stampin' Up! team then please contact me today.

Until next time, take care

Hi Rozzy... Chris was an absolute sweetie...I hope you get the chance to meet him one day. I did get some fabulous swaps... I will try to take some pics and upload them...but first I must check with the ladies and gents who made them that it is okay to do so.
