Home from Convention

I have spent the last 4 days in Melbourne at our annual Stampin' Up! Convention.  It was amazing, to spend 3 days with 500 Demonstrators and friends who love the same things as you. Stamps Stamps and more Stamps.  We learn't so many new ideas that I can share with many of you. We had Sneak Peaks of stamps that are coming, and you will be very happy with these. NO I can't share yet, but will be able to very soon. It will give you something to look forward to and get excited about.

I will show you my swaps that I took to Melbourne, and I will share a few of my favourite swaps also.  I swapped without about 100+ woman, so have way to many to show you them all.

This first swap was to my Downline and Upline.  I made this out of material using one of our exclusive dies. Flower Folds

This next swap is a little decorations for your drink bottle. Great to to decorate a table for a party of any type.  The last photo in this post shows you mine.

How about this tiny little box.  A great way to put a  present a special little gift to someone.

Total made.

I made a business tool, to show our wonderful DSP paper off.  Found this idea from a UK demonstrator.

This swap was using our Impressions folder and ink, great technique and fun to do.

Don't throw away your old soft/beer cans, you can use them to make wonderful projects.  This is a brooch that I created out of a coke can.  Very easy, your bigshot is an  amazing tool.

This is my drink bottle label.

I hope you have enjoyed these samples and will post a few of my favourties swap.
Please leave a comment so that I know you are enjoying these samples or what you may like to see.
