Stampin Up

I think the first time I heard of Stampin Up was on the marvelous first issues of Take Ten by Stampington Co. The superbr design of their images really caught my eye and I tried to get them . As many other keen stampers in the Uk, I was soon told that it was impossible for me to get them in Europe, that only you could get them through a qualified instructor in the US.
All right, a few months ago they anounced that they are expanding to the Uk, but can I wait? Of course not! While I am here in Canada I need to attend one Stampin Up event, so I contact Caroline Lebel, order some stuff and book myself into one class. I love it. Love the product love the style.
Here you have a photo of two of the stations:

I mean, isn't that neat? Of course in order to work this type of class where each station is set for making one card requires loads of space and not many attendees, otherwise it would be like a game of chairs.

Then Caroline's daughter, Serena, posed for the camera -my camera phone!- in front of the wall of samples.

And then there was this shelves with loads of samples some made by Caroline some made by other Stampin Up instructors.

So, in other words, I had a blast and can hardly wait until Stampin Up comes over to the UK.
