Last week was a week of celebrations. First I had my second quarter team meeting with my Papercraft Cats team and there were a number of big celebrations. We had birthdays, and sales, and promotions and bonuses to applaud and luckily, my April Paper Pumpkin kit arrived at my door just in time for me to use those awesome card designs to create some lovely mementos for my team members! Thank you Sara Douglass, for your creativeness and thank you, Paper Pumpkin for always arriving at my door just when I need you! Have a look at some of the other cards I created. I altered colours and layouts slightly to suit my purposes, but they are mostly the way they were meant to be. (By the way, there is an awesome free gift in this month's kit!!)
I did use a couple of other stamp sets on the bottom two cards. One was an old motivational one that I got at a Stampin' Up! function several years back that works really well for team meetings, but you can no longer get them. The other I used is the Vertical Greetings stamp set, which gave me a vertical congratulations, which was perfect for the second design here.
Now I suppose it is too late to be issuing a spoiler alert, but if you haven't already got your April Paper Pumpkin kit and you like to be surprised, you probably don't want to watch the following video:
Now, the second celebration was held on the weekend, and it was my Annual Celebrate Sale-A-Bration Party. I hold these parties just after the end of Sale-A-Bration each year to reward my customers who earned a Sale-A-Bration reward from me during the promotion. We have an awesome time!
We have yummy food! The hit this year was the combination of strawberries and chocolate brownies!
We play some really fun games! This year it was an Easter Egg hunt with a twist, a questionnaire on Stamping Lingo (more on that later) and several rounds of Bingo! (Gail wouldn't let us stop until she won!)
And of course, there was shopping from my retired stash, and, as always - Stamping!
I thought I'd leave you with the quiz I gave the group. See how you do and make sure you read the questions carefully. They're really not hard, but you only appreciate the humour by reading all the alternatives! We were all giggling when we checked the answers together! I'll post the answers, if it's really necessary, on Wednesday!
