Papercraft Expo RNA showgrounds
This weekend I was fortunate enough to be part of the team of Paper Angels Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who had a stand at the Papercraft Expo in Brisbane. Liz, Bec, Ursula, Kate and myself worked hard for two weeks to put it all together, although the bulk of the work was done by Liz who had the stand set up in her family/dining room to see how it would look, and talked tirelessly on the phone to the organisers. (And we won't forget the leg work that Leonie put in, but couldn't make it in the end for family reasons) The stand looked fabulous, with a make and take table at one end, and a tasteful display at the other, surrounded by beautiful creations on the walls. We had show specials (contact me for more details of these, we are offering them to you now that the show is over) and a fantastic door prize of over $300 in products as well as incentives for workshop bookings. It was tiring, and I was only there for two days, so the others must be superhuman. Now I know how quickly an ink pad can be put back together (thanks Bec), and had a lesson in how to make sales seem easy from Kate... Thanks to everyone who came and supported us at our first big commercial show, I really hope to be involved with the next one as it was such good fun. We really do have the most wonderful team Demonstrators, the Creative Memories lady even commented on how much fun we were having and how we all get on so well.
