Hi Guys

Well I have arrived back from the third European Convention which was in Disneyland Paris and I had such a fab time.

I was privileged to be able to walk across the stage for a Leadership Award which I knew I was collecting before we went.  What I wasn't expecting was the fact that I made it into the Top 25 Demonstrators in the UK, so I am absolutely thrilled and I would like to thank each and every one of you who follow my blog,  who buy from me and are loyal customers and my team.  And of course my wonderful hubby for his support over the last year.

I said before I went that I would show you the projects that I made for people whilst I was away.

The first is my 3D and roomie gift

I made a teddy bear that was inspired by one that was on Shelli Gardners blog.  I made it by cutting out several circles from my No 2 circle die and my scallop circle die.  The nose is a glimmer brad and the eyes are Basic Rhinestoes.  I then made a little box for them to go in.  Just so you get some size of the scale of these, the box is just 3.5" tall!!  I have used the Flirtatious DSP and Fabric and trimmed with a melon mambo ribbon.

Also for my roomies and travel companions (6 of us travelled together) I made these...

These were decorated with the Beau Chateau DSP and coordinating card stock.  I have used the scalloped ribbon punch to trim and the Chantilly lace crocheted ribbon for accents.  I have then topped it with each girls initials and they can use it for what they want.

This is my general swap and I made it using the Sail Away A la Carte stamp and sponged with Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo.  I stamped on with Stazon.

My last offering for today is my card candy swap for which I used the 'Under The Big Top' stamp set that I received for free at this years Leadership training (join my team and you could earn stamp sets like this too).

 I had some fabulous swaps back and they will come another day.

I hope you like and until next time

Convention preparation

Hi Guys

No photos today but will be able to show you them late next week.

I have been very busy the last few days preparing for Convention.  Today I sat and made 100 swaps. What a marathon! PHEW!!

 I took a day off on Sunday and went to the NEC in Birmingham visiting the Crafts at Christmas exhibition. I had forgotten how tiring it could be spending all that money!! Hello to everyone that was on the Stampin' Up! stand.

 Anyway I will see all of you going to Convention a week on friday. Yippee... I can't wait!  Mickey Mouse here I come.

Have fun and until next time

Star and Pyramid Cards

Hi Guys

Well this week saw my bi - monthly class again (held every other Monday) and we made some lovely cards.  They were a Star Card and a Pyramid card.  I have seen them a few times on the internet and not sure where I saw them first.

I have used the Holly Berry Bouquet papers to  to make both cards .

The Star card base is done in Whisper White. The flowers were made using the Five petal punch and also the boho blossoms punch. The flowers are made using Real Red card and Wild Wasabi and spritzed with Frost White Shimmer paint.  The centres of the flowers are the new Gold glimmer brads.  The points of the star are edged with Wild Wasabi punched with the scallop ribbon border punch and put through the paper crimper. They are then sparkled with Basic Rhinestones.  The greeting is from the set Perfect Punches.

Our second card this week was a Pyramid card.

The base of the Pyramid was done in Very Vanilla and  Cherry Cobbler.  The bow was made using Very Cherry Cobbler card punched using the scallop ribbon border punch and also a piece of  Chantilly Crochet Trim and we added some Basic Pearls. The Flowers have been cut with the Fun Flowers die in Cherry Cobbler and So Saffron.  We scrunched them up and layered them up and adhered them to the front of the card.

If you would like to join us then email me or ring me on the number at the top of my blog and I would be happy to give you more details.

I hope you like and until next time

Happy Crafting
