Sydney Regional Seminar

Wow, what a fantastic weekend!!  On Saturday I took the opportunity to go to my first Stampin’ Up! seminar and I had such a great time.  There was just so much information, new techniques and ideas, new inspiration, new business ideas, and to top all of that off we got a new stamp set (which hasn’t been released yet), did four different make and take projects which were just fantastic, met lots of new stampers and got lots of swaps 🙂

This was the swap I made, I wasn’t all that pleased with it, but I really wanted to use some of the beautiful Designer Papers and tried to do something a little different with them.

One of the many things I really enjoyed about the seminar was the opportunity to meet some of the amazingly talented demonstrators who live in the region, and whose blogs I visit on a regular basis.  One of these people was Jayne Mercer, and today’s card is based on one that she has on her blog. I had not thought of combining these colours and was trying to work out what to do with Taken with Teal as it is a beautiful colour just not one that I have used very much.  I have used a similar design but different stamp sets to the one Jayne uses.  It is a nice simple layout, and quite an easy card to make, which is just as well as I think the rest of the day will need to be a recovery day from the weekend 🙂
