Stampin' Up! Convention 2007

Ok, after a very eventful fortnight, which included a week long holiday at Crescent Head. Visiting family and helping to celebrate my Dad's 60th Birthday. Then being home for less then 24 hours and off again for the fantastic weekend of the first annual Stampin' Up! Convention. And what a fabulous time. Met people from the "teams" for the first time. And met new people as well. It was marvelous and I can't wait until Brisbane next year.

Along with great classes to help us grow our businesses, and fantastic demos by some very talented ladies, including the Co-Founder Shelli Gardner herself. We had a chance to do 2 make and takes on the Saturday. I've uploaded these for you to have a look at. We made these with the 2 free sets we received at check in. Be Happy and Dream Come True. I'm looking forward to using both these sets a lot.

I think these were both designed by Jill Kocherhans. And the materials used are

Love Card
Stamp Set - Dream Come True
Ink - Old Olive, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise
Cardstock - Cool Caribbean, Old Olive, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise.

Now of course, I'm continuing to play with these sets constantly, always happens when you have new toys. So taking the basic design of the flower from the Be Happy Page, I've come up with this as a fairly simple Make and Take for workshops.

All materials used are available through me.
