I said I would let you all know the results of the QLD Mental Health Week Activity and this post is better late than never.
I blame October, it is such a HUGE month for me personally with so many birthdays in my family and then throw in everything that seemed to happen and then it seems to go downhill from there. This year we had Onstage in November which was our family holiday as well and then Christmas seemed to just sneak up on me. Anyways I did remember to take some photos and I shared them on Instagram so some of you may have seen them already.
I was absolutely floored with the turnout really. I ran two classes during the week and had a few people in each class.
All the participants loved it and I even had one lady comment “I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would”, which just made my day.
The whole point of the activity was to create 4 cards of which 2 would be donated to LIVIN which is the chosen charity that supports mental health and is based on the Gold Coast. I have finally collated all the cards we created and a few extras that I had thrown in to give a grand total of 61. The charity can use these cards to give recipients of their services a sign that someone cares or they can sell them and use the proceeds to fund other activities of their choice.
This was so popular that I’ve had a request if we can do a Christmas Card Class, so I created that and that has also happened, unfortunately, I was so busy helping participants I only managed to take one photo.
I just kept the cards really simple and used the #loveitchopit method and added my favourite punch combo for the sentiment. This is the starburst punch teamed with the 2inch circle punch. The starburst is punched out from the layering piece and the 2 inch is just some Whisper White or Very Vanilla.
Some other punches I used were the tree punch and the twig punch to add some more items to the cards. These were then finished off with some bling and ribbon.
In the past, I have kept my “real work” and my “stamping work” separate and I have no idea why. I’m enjoying talking about my other job so much and seeing the enjoyment in these ladies’ faces was the best thing in the world.
Do not already have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!!
I would be happy to help you place an order. If you would like a catalogue please let me know and I will pop one in the post for you.
