Friendship & Fun: Stampin Up Team Day

Published by under team | Mar 05 2014

Juliana_Simone_polaroid_sLast month we held a Stampin’ Up! Team Day and invited all the members in my group, the EurekaStampers, to come along for some fun.

It was a fabulous day! A great opportunity to catch up with old and new friends, and share our passion for papercrafting.

First up, we watched technique presentations put on by fellow team members. Our MC, Tracy, did an amazing job keeping us entertained as she introduced each of the presenters. Topics included: paper flowers and different ways to use the new Spiral Flower Die; working with vellum; effective uses for offcuts and die cut negatives; tags; how to use different tools; and many more inspirational techniques.

There were plenty of opportunities to learn.

We had a tool table set up where our newer members could try their hand at the envelope punch board, die cutting, the Stamp-a-ma-jig and more. Experienced demonstrators were there to offer a helping hand.

Our resident MDS/My Digital Studio guru, Jessica Williams, hosted an optional class on digital design, which was hugely popular.

The venue was the Holiday Inn at Melbourne Airport, so it was very handy for our interstate team members who flew in for the day. We are spread out all over Australia, so it’s not always easy to meet up in person, although the team forum and other wonders of technology certainly keep us connected.

A few months earlier we had invited the Stampin’ Up! Regional Business Manager to come along and were thrilled when Aaron said yes. We are so grateful that the day fitted in with his busy schedule, and that he could spend some time with us.

Lunch was a help-yourself buffet supplied by the venue, and after that we spent the afternoon crafting. The make & take kits were in the bag that everyone received at registration – all cut and ready to go – and included a card using the Sale-a-bration Good As Gold kit, a sweet Watercolor Wonder 12×12 scrapbook page and an amazing 3D Card/Box project designed by Maureen. Love it!

One of the highlights for me was the amazing Show & Share display tables.

All attendees were encouraged to bring along a project or two, and the displays were… well, it’s hard to even put it in words. So many amazing, jaw-dropping, incredible creations. It was a feast for the eyes. And soooo inspiring! This day was just the thing many of us needed to get the mojo back, and I know quite a few of us have been creating up a storm since the Team Day.  teamday2

We finished off the day with more prizes, final lucky ticket giveaways and a Q&A session before we packed up and headed home. Counting down the days until our big annual 2014 Stampin’ Up! Convention which is in May.
