Monthly Demonstrator Fun

Not only do I love stamping and having classes of my own, I also like to gather with other demonstrators on my Cowtown Crafters team and actually stamp with them!  (What a concept, huh?)

Every month we gather together for a fun night to have a brief business meeting, celebrate the successes in our group, share project ideas and then get on with some stamping!  It's just one more perk of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and being a part of the Cowtown Crafters team!

This month we made four Christmas cards that feature new products from the upcoming Holiday Catalog!  I can't wait to share them with you! (And I will be sharing them this month as part of my Sneak Peek series for the Holiday Catalog.)

We must have had 18 or 19 people at our meeting this month!

Would you like to see some of the creativity of this group?  There were actually two tables holding all sorts of samples and for some reason I only took pictures from one of the tables (I can't believe I forgot to take pictures of the other table!).  The samples and ideas this month were amazing to say the least!

Check out this adorable wine bottle cover that Kim made.  How cool (and beautiful) is that!?  She used the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper on top of black card stock.  Have you seen this Designer Paper in person, yet?  It is hands-down the prettiest paper I've ever seen!  It truly is elegant and beautiful!

And I just love this card set using the new Pretty Petals Designers Series Paper Stack and the Tin of Cards stamp set.  Great combination!

Here's another way to decorate a bottle of soda, wine or any other drink with a longer "neck".  This was created by my friend, Janet, and isn't that the cutest way to give a gift to someone?  She used the following supplies:  Merry Moments Designer Series Paper, Tree Punch, Greetings Thinlits (for the word Cheers) and the Lots of Labels Framelits set to cut out the shape of the "tag".

And my final share to show you today is this adorable box of cards!  They were made using the English Garden Designer Series Papers and the butterflies!  Don't you just love all the butterfly dies and stamps?  I'm SO hooked on butterflies!  The butterflies on the box were created using the Butterflies Thinlits dies (use with the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine). 

We have come together, united over our love of stamping but the friendships with these amazing ladies is what feeds my soul!  If you would like to be a part of this group, too, it all starts with a simple purchase of your Starter Kit.  Whether you are local to me or long distance, I'd love for you to be a part of the Cowtown Crafters team!  I offer resources, ideas and support no matter where you live!

Contact me today if you have any questions or if you're ready to get started with Stampin' Up!.

Happy stamping and creating!
