Ducklings Team Event!

Hello, I've finally managed to get around to sorting out some photos of the ducklings team event that took place last weekend. 

We met up at Bests Coffee Shop for a day of crafting, chatting and a little Stampin' Up! news.  


Of course I needed a project for us to work on; I saw something a few weeks ago made by the fabulous Pootles that was perfect for us!  (There is a link to the tutorial at the end of this post).


Lots of last minute prepping for me; the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and my Stampin' Trimmer were invaluable preparing all those boxes.  

I made these little table gifts for everyone as I was still feeling tropical after last weeks C & C projects - the flamingo was as close to a craftyducky as I could get!

All set up and ready to go - the project was kept a secret from my crafty ducklings!

Before long the table was a crafty mess...

This is what we made - 5 little boxes decorated with DSP.

The boxes fit inside a little tray to make a desk tidy that is surprisingly sturdy.

Roll forwards a couple of hours, lots of chatter, coffee, cake and a delicious lunch and here we are with our finished projects.

We all choose different colours and papers- mine is on my desk proving very useful.  This project is a great way of using up that DSP that we all hoard - I even managed to use some retired papers from last year.


These events are free for my team members - if you would like to join us for the next one, now is the best time to join Stampin' Up!

During July you can choose 10 FREE ink pads from your favourite colour family in addition to your starter kit (your choice of products) for just £99.  That's an incredible £200 value for just 99!

Which colour family would you choose?  It would be a hard choice for me; Subtles or Brights ...


I have a small but growing team of ducklings and we would love you to join us.

You will also receive a minimum of 20% ongoing discount off future orders and lots of other perks and privilges too i.e being able to pre order from the new Seasonal Catalogue a whole month before everyone else!   I am a full time demo and I am happy to support you on your creative journey whether you are a hobbyist or looking to create a small business.
