JULY weSTAMP MEETING AND SWAP

Last night was our monthly weSTAMP meeting at my home. In case you're new to my blog, weSTAMP is a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator group consisting of my downline and Lorri Heiling's downline + one awesome "orphan demo", Pam Wood.

This month's meeting was extra special because Pam's incredibly talented, out-of-state upline (from Virginia), Wendy Janson, was able to attend and even swap with us! Most of us knew Wendy through blogland but had never met her personally. You would have thought we had a movie star coming to our meeting ... we were so nervous and excited, and so badly wanted to make a good impression. Let me tell you ... Wendy is just as sweet and personable as can be ... we could have visited with her all night! As I was going to bed last night, I realized that I had forgotten to take photos of Wendy with the group .. ughh!!

The famous Box In A Bag was our Make 'n Take for the evening. Great way to use up that retiring designer paper! You can find a tutorial for the Box In A Bag HERE on Stampin' With Di.

Our swap theme this month was to use a background stamp or a Stampin' Around Wheel on a card. Here's our swaps ...
