Stampin' Up! Regional in Fort Worth!

Last weekend I traveled to Fort Worth, Texas, to attend a Regional Stampin' Up! meeting for demonstrators and guests.  It was great!  Four of us left Friday morning on the Heartland Flyer, an Amtrak train.  We saw some pretty scenery and a roaring river where there had been so much rain!  In Fort Worth, we met our larger group that had traveled by car.  Later that evening my daughter Robin Clark and her upline Kimberly Stallcup arrived from San Antonio.

Skyline of Fort Worth as we arrived on the train! It was a beautiful day!  I love Fort Worth!  It is where I grew up!

We attended the Saturday Regional.  Shelli Gardner, the co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up! was the seminar leader and gave the first presentation using Stampin' Up!'s lovely new fabric in different ways!  (The skirt she is wearing in the picture is actually made from our new Stampin' Up! fabric!!  And it can even be used for a tree skirt!  Yes!  Believe it!)  She made and showed some cards and a little pocketed card cover used to carry several cards and envelopes;  you can have them on hand anytime you want to write a card!

We saw some inspiring Workshop Wows; for the last presentation, demo Glenda Travelstead showed us how she does workshops.  She was both humorous and serious.  We laughed and we had tears well up in our eyes!  I think she connected with us all!  Great job!

We always look forward to the Make and Takes and the new free stamp set that comes with attending Regional!  This year it is the wonderful new Day of Gratitude set from the outstanding current Holiday Mini!!  Love it!

Here is one of the six Make and Takes we did.  This is a simple but lovely card!  I love this set!  The card is in Old Olive with the white layer for the sentiment, which uses the new Decorative Label Punch (also in the Holiday Mini!) 
Also notice the dainty little self-adhesive Basic Pearls and the luxurious Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon which finish off the card!

Thanks for coming by today to visit!  I'll be posting more of the Make and Takes and some other new projects, probably tomorrow!
