Vacation Stamping School Highlights + Eastern Elegance for the Holidays

In August, we held our annual demonstrator training event (previously called Spring into Stamping, now called Vacation Stamping School). This year, our theme was the Holiday Catalog, and even though we were just under two weeks into the pre-order, we pulled off an amazing event!

In addition to our main stage demonstrations, make and takes, and game show -- we had a lineup of some of the most talented demonstrators on our team to wow us during the Demonstration Fair!  One of my favorites was Linda Yearsley, who breathed new life into the Eastern Elegance Suite with a holiday spin!

 Linda also created masks with the Eastern Medallion dies and sponged through the masks to create a fun background for these cards.

I'll be sharing more projects from Vacation Stamping School this week, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I need to give a huge shout-out to Mary Ellen Stites and Meg Loven  (below with me in the middle) -- my planning partners. We make such a a great team! The way we pull together an event is like magic! Thank you Meg, Mary Ellen, and all of the demonstrators who helped to make this year's Vacation Stamping School so amazing!
