Stampin' Up Regionals

Yesterday I was in Hartford, Connecticut for a Stampin' Up! Regional event, so I did not have a chance to work with this week's sketch.  (Actually, I could not find this week's sketch or I would have prepared it ahead of time. )  So instead, at Carol's suggestion, I will bore you with the projects we created at Regionals!  (I'm sure you realize I am only doing this to stay on Carol's good side since I did not do the Saturday sketch challenge!)  We had fabulous make-and-takes, some over-the-top Workshop WOW's, and some +ONE surprises!  Our make-and-takes were stepped up, we all came home with Glass Glitter (Thank you Stampin' UP!), and we had a three o'clock ice cream break!  Our last +ONE of the day was on the way to the parking garage.  We needed to take the elevator up one level, and we really packed the elevator tight with SU! demonstrators.  Someone saw that the maximum capacity was 10 people and we had 11!  I piped up with the comment, "We're just working on our commitment to this year's theme, +ONE!"

Here is the first card, a 3X3 with matching envelope, Thanks Card.

This card, No. 147 Card, is really pretty because we added Champagne mist glimmer paint to the edges as well as the bird cage.
Here's another beauty, A Note of Thanks Card, which featured the crimper on both the card and envelope.
The last of the cards was called Hostess Gift, and holds four 3 x 3 note cards.

The last project is an adorable banner which is not quite finished.  I will post it as soon as I can.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the projects from Regionals as much as I enjoyed making them!

To see the UDI sketch challenge cards, head over to Elisabeth's blog to see her beautiful work.
