First Workshop and Projects

I had my first workshop this past Sunday. I could not have been happier with the way it turned out. My sister hosted this for me at her place since my apartment is just too small. There were 5 people who were there for the make and take and 1 showed up after to look at the supplies. I had all of my supplies from the starter kit since no one had ever heard or used Stampin' Up! The girls made a birthday card and gift box. We used a bunch of different techniques to show how to use my supplies. From this demonstration, I had 4 of the 6 ladies order. My total order was about $1,000!!! My mom loves Sizzix and ordered most of the die cuts that are exclusively ours because you can't order them anywhere else. My sister is a first time crafter, so she placed a big order to get most of the tools. With this big of an order, we got a ton of things free for hosting. She's being nice enough to let me build my supplies with these benefits. The best thing is that we ordered the Sizzix machine for free!! This was very successful and I'm looking forward to my next one next Friday while I'm in Pittsburgh. I also got 2 ladies who would love to host a workshop. I'm not doing too bad for my first month as a demonstrator!!

Here are the two projects we made with the list of the supplies. If you are interested in learning how we made the card and box, leave me a comment. Remember, you can always shop online 24/7 for the stuff that you need from me!
