"WOW" - 5 Generations of SU Demonstrators

What a weekend we have had. This has been our first gathering of our wonderful Team of Demonstrators. We had 5 generations come and enjoy a wonderful and very very big weekend of stampings and creating. There were a few that couldn't make it, but hopefully next time they will come after they hear how great it was.
Some of us had never meet before, so it was really exciting to met each other, and put a name to a face. We are already organizing our next one.
Most travelled many miles. Some travelling 1 hour, others 2 hours, and even 3 hours, what a great effort. Thank you. Me, I didn't have to travel at all, because they all come to my place, how lucky was I.

I have got all our projects that we made, so I thought I would share them with you.

This first project was Kathy's creation. We have to thank Andrea Waldorf for her wonderful patterns that she sells from her site. Three of us shared 1 of Andrea's projects.
This is a wonderful pouch with 4 beautiful cards.
This next project was presented by Donna. Fabulous 6 x 6 Scrap pages. Another project from Andrea.
How cute is that?
This next one is also Donna's, we made 18 cards from a 1/2 pack of Petal Party Scrappin' kits. These kits are amazing. You get so much out of them. For both card making, scrap pages, and off the page projects.
How cute is this card?
A couple of cards using Wagon Full of Fun, and Sweet Slumber Speciality Paper. donna also put this one together.

Pam L created this great little crab, from a selection of out wonder punches. How cute is this. Imagine him on a scrap page at the beach.
This card is lovely. Leonie presented this one to us, using many different products. That is one of my most favourite stamp sets.
How is this one. This is one of our" Wow" projects. What a useful little present, but very sweet. We all loved this one. You place this little note pad on your desk and it's there for you to use. Stamp Clubers you might get to do this one. Pam J, (our team leader) shared this one with us.
Mel showed us all how to do Faux metal. How good is this technique. You can make this one for the men and even the ladies. This looks really great.
Pam J also presented us this one. How appropriate for Valentine's Day. I love the slit punch scallop edge. Another great technique.
I loved this card so much, my son had just come to the door and said, "Mum, you got a Valentine's card for me", to give Lea, so I whipped this one up.
This last card is my last, and Leonie created it for me, while she had a spare 2 minutes. How cute is this. Thank you Leonie.

Well you can see we have a great time, and worked our little fingers to the bone. It was hard, but someone had to do it.
So sorry to Cheryl H, who had car troubles when she left Adelaide, and missed out. She will be here next time.
So keep it up girls, and I hope my readers have got a few ideas from all these projects.

Happy stampin' Cheryl

I have just conducted my last class in my All About Me Album. I got this great idea from Regionals 2008, Melbourne from one of the wonderful Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the US office.
We all gathered pictures, secrets, and info about ourselves, our other half, our children and then as one, a family.
I completed three albums, breaking it down into Me & You, Them and Us.

I have just decorated the front of the albums, with products from our Stampin' Up! range.

The first Album is All About Me and You. I chose a Navy Blue Linen 6 x 6 from our range.
I decorated it with our On Board products colouring them with a dauber and Re-Inkers. I then applied some Crystal Effects to portions of the On board pieces. I made a tag, and tied it to the Album with some 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon.

The second Album is All About Them. I used a Natural coloured Album for this one. I decorated this one with our On Board So Tweet.

The last one is All About Them. Using the same On Board So Tweet. They have come up well and very easy to do. I stuck the On Boards pieces to the Album with Crystal Effects.(great product)

This is just an idea to jazz up your Albums, and make them personal to you.

Happy Stampin'
