Demo Day with Spencer Willis

Last Friday I was asked to be a guest demonstrator for the Stampindelicious group here in Boise. What an honor to be asked to demonstrate for another group. And guess what...I got to share the spotlight with Spencer Willis!

Spencer is one of the favorite main stage presenters at convention and other Stampin' Up! events. He works for Stampin' Up! has been a demonstrator for 11 years and is also a Boise State graduate. He exchanged a demonstration day for BSU vs TSU game tickets. We are only about 4-1/2 hours from Salt Lake where he lives, so he didn't have to drive too far.

He came running in with his cheerleader uniform on from several conventions ago when they had a collegiate theme, Better Your Best. He thought that since he was here for the game, it would be funny - and it was!

Here we are pictured above with Andrea Leeds, the organizer of the event. What a love she is!

Here he is doing his demonstration. It was fantastic but it got better when he previewed almost everything from the new Occasions Mini Catalog coming up in January!!!

All of the girls in attendance from that group made Spencer a gift. They gave him this darling bag made with the Big Shot and the Timeless Portrait Fabric stuffed full of gifts. all that stuff on the table came out of the bag. It was so cool!

At the end of his presentation he sang for us. Simply AMAZING as it always is each time he sings at SU! events!!!

Here I am doing my thing...

These are the items I demonstrated, mostly using the Sweets for the Sweet stamp set.

Their make-n-take was this clutch purse wallet gift card holder. The pattern for this is available in the 12 Days of Christmas 2011 edition tutorial available on the right hand side bar or the tutorials page of this blog.

A closer look at the tag for the bag of candy. I used the Peekaboo Frame die-cut.

Same Peekaboo Frame die-cut on the end of the cello bag.

The card to match.

There were about 40+ in attendance, a great turn out for a Friday all day event.

Here are my peeps: Ronette Hunsacker, Jennifer Thomas, Helen Allen, me, Virginia Beck and Dianna Johnson.

Thank you Stampindelicious and Spencer Willis for a fun day!
