Earlier this week the Stamp ‘n Sip Gals – our team name – met for our October meeting. We rotate our location so this month we were at Rowena’s house in her beautiful crafting space! We are taking turns hosting, teaching a card technique, and setting the challenge for the following month. For those unable to attend we also have a private group page where the cards are posted as well as the information for the following month. It’s so nice to have helpers who share the responsibilities for the team! Chris mans our group page while Johnna sends the emails to keep everyone informed. Gathering with this group of ladies is a treat and I treasure each and everyone of them!
Chris’s Technique For Our Meeting!
Chris shared with us the Double Twisted Ribbon Technique from Terri Gaines. To access the PDF go to CreateWithTerri.com – she has lots of PDF’s available! We used the Texture Chic DSP from the annual catalog, selecting two sheets using Soft Succulent and Petal Pink as our color combo. I do the prep for everyone’s cards ahead of the meeting so everyone receives the directions printed off as well as their packet. I will say this one was challenging!!! I loved how it turned out though – once you navigate the Double Twisted Ribbon concept, it will be much easier to recreate!
Our October Challenge – a Monochromatic Sympathy Card!
I selected the challenge theme for October – creating a monochromatic sympathy card. For those who couldn’t attend they sent pictures of their card to share with the group. This still gives those living outside of the Macon area the chance to participate, and they will be able to see all of the cards posted on the private group page.
Our next meeting date with be Thursday, November 17 at the Whistle Stop in Bevier with Pam hosting. Our card technique will be presented by Candy, and the team challenge card is to be “create a Thanksgiving card” suggested by Chris. Did you notice a re-occurring theme through this post – others presenting, hosting, and sending the reminders?? I chose to be a “facilitator” versus the team leader. I love that others help by hosting, teaching, emails and fb, etc. We all have ownership in our team activities and enjoy the time together. There is always room to add another person though – we will find a job for you! LOL!!
