So today I shall share a little bit about my adventures in the Netherlands.  I am working hard to grow a European team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and last week I volunteered to help out on a Stampin’ Up! stand at Liebelle Zomerweek, in Almere. You can see all about the show here.

I flew in on Wednesday ready for a bright and early start on Thursday, here are some of my new Stampin’ Up! friends who also worked on the stand with me.  Do note it was sunny at that point!

We met and amazing group of women, many of whom had never heard of Stampin’ Up! we ran make and takes all day, and even my very limited dutch was not a problem, it seems papercrafting and rubber-stamping and lots of smiles don’t need translation!  I have to say a huge thank you to the dutch girls who kindly taught me lots of dutch words too!

For some ladies it was their first ever card, and they were very proud!

Now earlier I did mention the sun…….well it didn’t stay long…… started to rain gently at first, but then it poured, in fact I felt quite at home!  Although we could shelter inside the marquee, we needed to talk to everyone so I did spend quite sometime outside in the rain, my shoes needed wringing out when I got back to the hotel!

I spent Friday with some dutch friends and then back home again, I will be in Amsterdam again late June, early July so if you would like to find out more about joining my team and becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in The Netherlands I would love to talk to you about it, please email me for more information.

I won’t leave without sharing a couple of cards, using a scrapbooking kit!  The scrapbooking kit is called  Flower Fair Simply Scrappin’ and is in the current Spring -Summer Stampin’ Up! catalogue, it’s a great 8″x8″ kit that includes, double sided paper, cardstock, cardstock stickers, buttons and ribbon.  They will only be available until the end of June 2013 so do get yours soon!  You can click on the link at the top right of this page and you can go shopping with me online !  How cool is that?
