Passionettes Quarterly Team Training

Hello there hope you’re well and your week is going well. Today I want to share with you some snippets of our Training Event on the 1st July. I love crafty get togethers and love getting together with my teamies and fellow demonstrators.
It was particularly exciting as my two good friends and French demos come to visit me and attend the training. Here’s Moira finishing off her swaps in my kitchen  Smile

Training and finding it hard to understand how on Earth you can work during your lunch break ? ( the French would NEVER do this so the moment had to be captured for eternity)

And before we knew it the day was over and it was time for our raffle prizes and goodbyes. Below you can see the lovely Bekka my lovely partner in crime organizing and running these events, she is one special lady and I am very grateful to know her.

Being a demonstrator has so many benefits and every single event is special and great fun. I always bang on about this but I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love, lucky to have made some really special friendships and lucky to share such happy memories with so many lovely people.
if you would like to find out more about becoming a demonstrator please do not hesitate to contact me, the benefits are great and if I can do it everyone can.
I want to introduce you to Anita one of our newest team members. Her proud up-upline my lovely downline Susan sent me this lovely picture, doesn’t she looks lovely in her Stampin’Up! apron?anita
I had the pleasure of meeting Anita she is a lovely and very talented crafter and really she is excited about her new venture. Her classes are very popular and she will be a fabulous demo I am sure. She lives in Mitcheldean so if you are in the area and want to check out her workshops out get in touch.
Gosh this has turned out into an almighty post hasn’t it? I want to share one of the projects we did on the day. Our theme was Christmas and here’s one of the cards we did highlighting the Ghosting technique.

Ridinghood Red, Shimmery Gold, Crumb cake and Very Vanilla.
The gold card was scalloped using the scallop trim border punch, the sentiment from Delightful Dozen cut out with the framelits and the Big shot machine from Stampin’Up! and the lovely poinsettia made using the 5 petal flower punch. The background was stamped with the Serene Snowflakes set.
Thank you for visiting me please come back tomorrow for more projects from our training. Hugs xx
