Pootlers Team Crafting Day with Half Full and Glue….

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Pootlers Team Crafting Day with Half Full and Glue….

Well yesterday I shared that I was at our OnStage event with 60 of my team, well today, I’m hosting an event for my team with 55 in attendance!

I’m partnering with one of my leaders, Caroline Helwigh, and we are doing a dual crafting and business training for everyone. Even though I’m writing this in advance, I know it will be amazing – our team events always are.

It’s always inspiring to get together, but to spend time working on business topics to help them grow is so fulfilling. And we have a lot of information to share with them!

However, no get together would be the right without some crafting involved, so I’ve set them a great set of projects to make.

I always like to gift projects and products to my team – they’re committing to coming to an event and to training, so I like to make sure they get full ‘value for money’ and on this event, I’ve gifted them all the amazing Half Full stamp set, designed by Million Sales achiever Linda Bauwin, along with a bottle of fine tipped glue, a packet of rhinestones, aqua painters and all the cardstock they need to create their projects.

I was also really humbled that when I let Linda know that I was gifting the stamp set to the whole group, she sent me a message to share with them. this is why I adore being part of Stampin’ Up! we work collectively from here to there, wherever ‘here’ is and wherever ‘there’ is. There are no miles when you’re sharing!

So I had a lot of fun creating these projects, and they’re all coloured in using different methods of adding reinker to glue, colouring first then adding clear glue over and also using Aqua Painters.

They’re all similar but different. I restricted the colour selection down to just Rich Razzleberry, Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron (though the eagle eyed may spot that I inadvertently made one card on Blushing Bride by mistake!), so it was a bit of a challenge, but I love the looks!

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday, and I shall be back next week with some follow up photos and chat about what went on this whole weekend!
