Albuquerque Stampin' Up Regional

Stampin' Up! visited Albuquerque today!

Today, was the Albuquerque Half Day Regional, and it was amazing! Fun, stamping, swaps, free stuff.....I couldn't have had a better Saturday. Here's a few highlights from today's regional.

I wish you could see how sparkly this card was in real life. This card makes me want to actually design a Halloween card.

Carrie Cudney showed us this cute Christmas tag you can make.

This is a cute little coupon book Carrie showed us. We all got a packet with all the supplies and instructions to make this.

This card was designed by one of Stampin' Up!'s IT guys. :) They had a challenge to design a card using items from their desk.

I love this card!

Card using items from a Simply Sent kit.

Punch art card.

Decorated card holder. We all got the card holder (just not decorated).

We learned how to make this sparkly border using just the Scallop Border punch.

Another Albuquerque demonstrator showed us how to make a telescoping card.

Stampin' Up! Regionals are held in select cities across the nation. (Albuquerque was very fortunate to have been selected this year!) They are first open to only demonstrators, but after a few days, and if there is space available, SU! will open up the regional to non-demonstrators. The Albuquerque regional was full in less than two days, so it was definitely worth being a demonstrator. Hopefully you can attend a Stampin' Up! regional one day.

Happy Stampin',
