Well Team Training and a Shoe Box swap !!!
I had a fantastic time yesterday at our He[art]s team training day.
Firstly, I gave everyone a marketing/strategy talk, which led on to upcoming training events and Convention – did I mention Convention is in Manchester this year – whoop whoop !!! and then, we got to the serious business.
I was never happy with the idea of buying all the products and designing projects for the craft aspect of our Team Training, as I don’t think its fair that I get the sales, when I am asking and helping my team to increase their sales. Also, the Hearts team has so much talent, that I felt I wasn’t using the resources available – ourselves ! Sooooo we went with the idea of running our team training ‘crafting’ sessions as a shoe box swap.
A shoe box swap is where each person brings a project that they have designed, and a shoe box full of all the products needed to replicate it. That way, we can show off our individual styles, and also share the sales. Win-win !
Below, is a sample of just some of the projects that we made yesterday. Oh, and we finished off our session with Emma’s Birthday cake …. nom nom ! Happy Birthday Emma !
Firstly, is Julie’s fun Easter Bunny Box made using the amazingly adaptable cone box die. Isn’t that bunny bottom soooooo cute huh ?!!!
Next is Tammy’s elegant project. Tammy used the stunning Everything Eleanor stamp set, which is fantastic for both Scrapbookers and Cardmakers. This is definitely one of my most used sets that I own !
Next is Emma’s extremely pretty project. Emma used the beautiful Comfort Cafe designer papers. These had never appealed to me really, but having used them yesterday, they instantly went on my wish list ! Emma also used the gorgeous Secret Garden stamp set with matching framelits. Isn’t this a beautiful project ?
Lastly for today, is Helen’s stunning card using the Honeycomb embossing folder, and the Oh Hello Stamp Set – I just adore this stamp set, it can be used for both male AND female cards – definitely a winner, and in the new Spring/Summer catalogue !
I will post MY project tomorrow when I will hopefully get a decent photograph of it … and I’ll talk you through it ….. you are gonna love it, I promise !
