National Stamping Month Paper Picnic

Standard

We celebrated National Stamping Month along with the launch of the CTMH Annual Inspirations and Holiday Expressions catalogues last Saturday.  Our event was a Paper Picnic attended by 35 ladies.

A Paper Picnic is a relaxed day spent creating with paper.  Some scrapbook , others make cards or create mini albums and gifts.  Everyone brought a plate to share for lunch, a bright happy smile and a willingness to try something new.

We began the day making Carborders – one for each of the new paper collections.

And here are the Carborders we made.  Not sure what a Carborder is?  Read this post for an explanation.

NSM CArmborder samplesI had 7 consultants helping at this event and it was enjoyed by all.  I love the way consultants in my team and area are happy to work together, sharing the preparation and running of our all day events.  They bring me such joy!

To cap off a fabulous day of sharing and creating, our raffle and donations raised over $400 for Operation Smile!  A BIG thank you to all the ladies who contributed to the day.  You have put a smile back on the face of a child suffering cleft lip and palette.

Happy Scrappin’
