Oh My Goodness, what a week end. I have had the most amazing weekend at Stampin' Up Convention. What a whirlwind of crafting. Some of our group, Julies Jems travelled together - Gemma, Jill, our mum Julie, Kate ( who did most of the driving to Surrey, and didn't she do amazing!!) and of course last of all me. Julie had named the car the Mystery Machine just like on Scooby Doo.
Here i am sitting on stage. I'm actually sat on life size wooden stamps that where on the stage. I just loved the fact that these where proper stamps but the size of them was huge. I wouldn't like to have tried to ink one of these up!!
Here i thought i would show you my swap offerings. I made book marks but with the added twist of a calender for 2011 on the back.
I have used the colour combo of Rich Razzleberry and Certainly Celery. The stampsets are Boroque Motif and flight of the Butterfly. The butterfly is inked with Melon Mambo. I made 140 of these to swap with other demonstrators and got lots of lovely swaps back.
For our convention bags we had to make name labels. Can you imagine that there were 300 other demonstrators all from the UK, Germany and France and we were all given exactly the same bags. This is my label for on my bag. I have used Melon Mambo cardstock, used the flourish from the tiny tags and inked it with Concord Crush. I have taken Concord Crush card stock and given an edging using the Scallop Trim Border Punch. These are very much my favourite colours.
There is so much to tell you and show you and i am sure you will get c0nvention overload after looking on other peoples blogs too so i am going to leave you for now and try and recover from all the exitement of it all.
Have a good week
