SU! Sheffield Field Training

On Monday night we attended Stampin' Up! Field Training. It was really good to get around a table with my SU! Mum Julie and SU! Sisters Sarah and Elaine and other SU Demonstrators. We had great fun, did some make and takes and a swap. Now I've not done a swap like this before, so wasn't quite sure what to expect or do. I did feel like they were a little plain but I really love them. So much so I didn't want to give them all away LOL.



I made five of each variation and these are perfect for quick Thank You Cards or Just because cards or even Invitations. The strip at the end is the remains from scallop punching. I used the corner rounder first then scallop punched. When it comes to bulk cards Ribbon can be quite expensive but strips of waste is for nothing.
