For me, Stampin Up has always been about Connection! Stampin Up has helped me to meet new people, connect with my community and make some wonderful friends. And this weeks Challenge is another story of Connecting with Stampin up.
The Challenge this week is Just Add Anything but a card!
To explain the connection further…..a couple of weeks ago I attended the Stampin Up On Stage local event here in Perth. Had a lovely day and came home with some great new things, Stamp Sets, ideas, new friends made (connections) and a lovely new little Stampin Up bag.
Then the following weekend I had my work “End of Year Function”. I had a new Blouse/Top to wear….needed a handbag……Oh I know – the Stampin Up one is the perfect colour! So off I went for a night out.
When I got there – I started chatting to a lady from our Perth office (that I had not met before). Having a great time….and then I noticed she was also wearing a new Stampin Up bag! Now normally, if you turned up somewhere and found you were wearing the same gear as someone else, you’d cut and run – right! But not this time!
I said to her……I know what you did last weekend! She’s like……Pardon???
So I flashed my bag!! CONNECTION!!
That was it – a new friend!
A short time later, my new Stampin Up Friend / Work colleague pulled a cute little Wine Glass Charm out of her bag and gave it to me. Loved it! So fun – I had to have a go at making some Charms too.
The Wine Glass Charms worked perfectly for this Challenge. I made a few of them and then created a box for them to go in.
Such a fun project to make – will definitely be making more.
