Hi from Seaton, IL. I am a new demonstrator. I have been stampin for a couple years off and on. I just decided to take the plunge and give it a try. I am looking for creative ideas to make workshop lap packets for my customers. I would also love any storage or transporting ideas if anyone has any. I would appreciate your ideas or even tricks of the trade. My open house is June 2nd and I want everything to be perfect. My upline is great help also.

Ok Hi from Seaton, IL again. Some day I will learn to get in the right forum. I am looking for ideas for workshop lap packets: folders, clipboards, What is creative or the best? Also the most reasonable since I am just starting out and don't want to spend a lot of $ right off at the beginning. Any ideas on storage at home and ways for toting supplies around to different workshops would be greatly appreciated. I have only been to 2 workshops in my life and I am going to be having one as an open house on June 2. Woohoo. Any other tricks of the trade anyone is willing to share? Thank you. Paula

Hi Paula! What a great thread. I will be watching for more ideas here myself. Anyway, for customer packets I bought some vinyl folders at Walmart. They were 52 cents each and have 4 corner slots on the inside left pocket for a business card. Plus I chose vinyl cause they'll last a little longer. And in the pockets I put an order form, hostess/demo/stamp club info sheet, a gift registry form and all the catalog supplements and specials. I have a clear plastic file box (lid has a carrying handle) that I put the folders and also all my files with extra copies/forms in. I take that to workshops. Also, I have a big rubbermaid box that holds everything else. Until I get my business built up more, that's all I need for now. Well I might have to take my card table, depending on table space at the location.

At my first workshop I thought I would play the "secret word" game. I chose "stamp" as the secret word and everytime I said it, the guests who said "you said the secret word!" got their name in a drawing for a free stamp. Well, they were very observant, as I said "stamp" alot! So we had our drawing midway through my presentation because my little basket was getting full. LOL If I do it again, I may choose a different word.

I'm always looking for game ideas! And also prize ideas (inexpensive ones preferably).

Good luck!

I wanted to add my pen holder idea. I took an empty vegetable tin can, stamped on cardstock and wrapped it around the can, secured with double-sided tape. Added some ribbon and fiber and wa-la, a cute pen holder/can to pass around when people need ink pens to write with.

Another thing I do at my workshops is a short devotion. TAC is a Christian-based company so I expand on that and have a short 3-5 minute devotion and lead in prayer. We have a lot of inspirational type stamps and I love using them to help this become somewhat of a ministry. God's given me so much, the least I can do is give back and try to glorify Him in my work.

Default Workshop packet thank you

Thank you to those of you that had ideas for me on how to assemble my packets for workshops. Every little bit helps. Also Bev what a small world you grew up in Monmouth. I grew up in Alexis. You probably are familiar with it too.
