SUDSOL Blog Tour Stop #19

SUDSOL Blog Tour

Today, I am featuring samples using the Tropical Party stamp set, Island Oasis Designer Series Paper, and the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  These are actually my workshop projects for the month of June.  In a workshop setting, I will demonstrate at least one project and provide my guests with 1-2 hands-on project(s).  Lately, I've been focusing on just a few items from the mini catalogs for all of the projects.  This shows my customers that they don't need to own everything in the catalog to create beautiful items and also shows them how versatile our stamps, ink, and paper can be.

This card is a great make & take project.  It showcases the stamping with markers technique and only takes a few minutes to put together.  You could use this card for just about any summer occasion—birthdays, a party invitation, thank you, etc.

The Tropical Party stamp set really reminds me of all the fabulous trips that I have taken to Tropical Destinations with my husband.  I think this stamp set is perfect for scrapbooking, too!

A great perk of being a Stampin' Up demonstrator is that you have the ability to earn wonderful incentive trips.  The first trip I earned was a cruise to the Mexican Riviera.  While we were in Puerto Vallarta, my husband and I found a tree named Ficus Benjamina.  Of course, I made him get his picture taken with it!

This scrapbook page is simple to demonstrate.  Stampin' Up offers many tools to create circles and this page utilizes punches and the circle cutter.  The circles form a scallop border around the photo mat, as well as a fabulous accent at the bottom of the page.  I also used the Flower Layers Originals die, but you could easily substitute the Island Floral die or any of our other Big Shot flower dies.

I have prepared a pdf file with measurements & basic instructions for both of these projects.  Feel free to use these projects in your upcoming workshops.

If it weren't for SUDSOL, I probably would not have been a demonstrator for the past 8 years.  I count myself very lucky to have found this group several months after I signed up as a demonstrator.  My upline lives in another state and SUDSOL has really filled this void by providing me with creative ideas, class outlines, motivation, and an enormous amount of information that has helped me grow my business over the years.
