On Tuesday evening my lovely downline and friend Alex came round so I could help get her started as an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
There was no time for crafting unfortunately, as we focused on business things, but we had a good time nonetheless.
I had made her a little something to say welcome to the Gem's Gems team and here it is ...
A little gift bag using the Scallop Envelope Die on my Big Shot.
These are really fun and easy to make - simply cut out four envelopes and stick them together so that the flap becomes the bottom of the box and the scallop bit is turned down over the top edge. Then decorate as you wish.
I used the Springtime Vintage DSP and added flowers made with the Fun Flowers Die and a bow from Seam Binding Ribbon.
I then filled it full of goodies - loads of bits of ribbon and a pot of buttons and brads.
The little pot is an empty SU one, which I just covered with another flower made using the Fun Flowers Die. I have also added texture by running the shapes through the Big Shot with an Embossing Folder - Square Lattice and Perfect Polka Dots.
Being an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is great fun and a fantastic way of making some money from being crafty. The Starter Kit costs just £119 for £230 of goodies and has everything to get you started.
If you'd like to find out more about joining the Gem's Gems just ring me or send me an email and we'll have a chat.
