Welcome to the Rubber Stamping Workshops Blog

Here you can find out all the latest RSW news, get details of special offers & view projects made using rubber stamps. Most of the projects shown here will be made from Stampin' Up! products, as I'm an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, covering Cheshire & Greater Manchester.

Catalogue Launch Party

My launch evening was actually on 30th September, but I've had a problem uploading photos recently, so I'm only just blogging it!

I held a VIP invite-only new catalogue launch party on 30/9/09. All my guests received a new catalogue, a catalogue sidekick (for marking pages), a little chocolate treat PLUS 25% off the most expensive item on their order that evening.

Recent Workshop Demonstration & Make & Take

Here's the sweet Christmas gift box I demonstrated at a recent Stampin' Up! home workshop:

The box was really easy to make, using the Scor-Pal and the new "Punches Three" hostess set, plus a few half pearls from the Pretties kit.

For the Make and Take, we made these cute Christmas tags, using the Spotlight on Christmas set. A plain white small tag is glued to the back of each, so there's room to write your "to" and "from"!

Cupcakes Galore! Workshop

I recently held a Cupcakes Galore! Workshop - here's what we made:

Me & Shelli!

I had my picture taken with Shelli at this year's convention & remembered that I'd also been pictured with her last year. Having lost some weight recently, I was interested to compare it to the picture I had taken last year and was quite pleased with the results!

Please note that I haven't shrunk - Shelli was wearing higher heels at the convention than she was at the Experience evening, where I met her last time!

Left photo was taken July'08, right photo taken Nov'09.
