Inspire, Create, Share – Gold Coast 2015

I have just come home from a fabulous time at the Inspire, Create, Share Stampin’ Up! Convention on the Gold Coast. Convention is something I always look forward to. It’s a great time of catching up with old friends, making new ones, seeing amazing new products and winning prizes!!

I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Leadership afternoon and Manager’s Reception on Wednesday. It was a great afternoon learning about new plans and being inspired in our business.

Afterwards, we were treated to an evening at the Australian Outback Spectacular which was amazing!! Makes me proud to be an Aussie!!

We were lucky enough to receive the 2015-2016 catalogue first this year!! It was so exciting!! We also saw demonstrations of the new products and found out the new In-colours!! Woo hoo!!! I love being a demo!!!

We finished off the day with a team dinner at the Kurrawa Surf Club and a rather large storm!!

Convention Swaps!!

I have just returned from the Inspire Create Share convention held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. I always have such a great time, catching up with my team, seeing lots of great projects and did I mention that I got a copy of the New Catalogue!!! I love being a demo!!!

One of the traditions of convention, is participating in swaps. My team had decided to do a two-inchie swap. What’s that, I hear you ask? It’s basically a 2 inch square, which we decided to do using the brights colour collection and in a party theme.

So here is my swap. I used the owl punch and made 40 crazy owls!! (He’s been to a party after all!!)

As you know, I am also part of the Case-ing the Catty Design Crew. Most of us were attending convention and we decided to do a small swap.

I have been wanting to try out the Bokeh technique so I thought I would give it a try. It was a bit scary but I’m happy with how it turned out. Each one looks different!!

If you would like to find out about becoming a demonstrator and getting to share in the fun of convention, seeing products first and receiving the catalogue before everyone else, please contact me on 0408 193 792 or click on the link to join my team straight away!!

Now to start cleaning up my craft room!! It always looks like a bomb has hit before convention!!!

Happy Stamping

We got to go to the Myer Mural Hall in Melbourne for a lovely dinner and dancing!! We also got spoilt with a beautiful gift of a gorgeous lacy cream scarf and the I Love Lace stamp set.

So I was having an online crafting session with a gorgeous friend and crazy stamper, and we gave each other a colour challenge and a sketch challenge to do. My colours were Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango and Sahara Sand.

So what do you think!! The lace stamp is so gorgeous that it goes with almost anything!!
