weSTAMP MARCH MEETING & SWAP

Last week was our monthly weSTAMP Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Group Meeting & Swap. This month, instead of a meeting, we changed it up a bit and "played" by making one of Becky Roberts' Tote-ally Awesome Totes! OMG! Becky's tutorial are AMAZING! ... so incredibly easy to follow with full color photos and step-by-step instructions. Well, let's just say that all the weSTAMP girls but myself were able to follow along easily! LOL! Have I ever mentioned that I'm a solo stamper? When I stamp with other people, you'd swear I was a beginner and that I had no idea what I was doing! I made one mistake after another and eventually gave up for the night. Oh boy! ... did Becky ever have a hay day relentlessly teasing me via e-mail with that information (which she got from Lorri) !!! Becky will be happy to know that I did complete my Tote-ally Awesome Tote the other night in the privacy and quiet surroundings of my studio ... ALL BY MYSELF !!!! and without error! I haven't completed the cards yet. When I do, I'll photograph my ensemble to share with you.This is Becky's sample ...Our swap theme for March was anything floral/springy using any combination of the colors of Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray, Almost Amethyst, and/or So Saffron. Here are our swaps (I am missing photographs of two of the swaps and will post them as soon as I can).
These are my swaps, and they are very similar to one of my class projects offered HERE (scroll down to the bottom of the post).
Ginny Schembri made these little gift bags for everyone in attendance with a special gift inside ...

Can't wait to see your tote and cards you created! It's funny but I'm the same way when I stamp with other women.

AMAZING! (I'm with you on appearing like a brand new stamper when in a group setting. I am the same way and prefer solo stamping for that reason!)
