Last week my regular class customers each received a little customer gift from me. A card telling them how much I miss them and a creative packet with supplies to make two cards.
Covid-19 has put a temporary stop to all of my classes and events held in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. I really miss sharing time with each of the ladies whom I normally see at class. This uncertain time has really confirmed to me that my crafty time with them isn’t just about beautiful coordinating craft products and projects but also friendships. I miss seeing and hearing all the news from each of my ladies and sharing some giggles.
Wanting to show my appreciation of each of them, I decided to send out a little customer gift packet with supplies to make two cards. The packets would allow the ladies to be creative at home with a little taste of the style they’ve come to expect from me.
As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I am bound by certain rules, one being that I’m unable to send out pre-stamped images and sentiments for customers to use. Die-cut shapes, pre-embossed panels and patterned papers are everything I am able to send and that’s exactly what my ladies received.
I added sentiments to my cards as inspiration for what they could add for themselves at home. I thought this first sentiment was just perfect for how I felt.
The Bird Ballad Paper offers incredible images that are perfect for fussy cutting.
A bird on a branch or a cluster of flowers you can create some beautiful cards using these images.
I clustered the flowers from the Bird Ballad paper to create a partial wreath for this second card. This sentiment is just perfect for this uncertain time. I’m certainly spending a lot more time talking with friends and family. It’s these priceless talks that are keeping some going.
A call with a friend or family member can quite simply be therapy for some so the sentiment used inside seemed perfectly fitting.
Two simple cards for my ladies to create and two that I hope they’ll enjoy creating … fussy cutting included.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my little share this morning and that you’ll consider doing a spot of therapeutic fussy cutting too.
