It’s a Stampin’ Up! tradition to make something special for our room mates if we are sharing with other demonstrators at convention or other events, so today I am quickly going to share with you the gifts I made for the lovely ladies who I was lucky enough to share with this year.
Firstly, I made some fridge magnets using the gorgeous Designer Builder Brads.
I just cut off the split pins at the back of the brads using the fabulous Craft and Rubber Scissors – yes, they are strong enough to cut through the metal, and then glued some magnets onto the back.
I added some of the More Amore papers to the front of a journal, and added some chocolates (a must have at convention!). I liked the idea of a journal, rather than a note book – they can be used as a smash book, design and ideas book, note book…..
Enough from me for today, I have a lot of catching up to do!
This year’s Stampin’ Up! Convention was just amazing and an experience that had to be seen to be believed. They are such a special company to be part of.
I have just so much to share, I took over 500 photos – don’t worry I won’t post them all, but I will try to pop a few up over the coming days. I also have rather a lot of things I want to try out and share with you, but firstly I will show you the swaps that I made. These are simply card fronts using Stampin’ Up! products that we make in order to exchange or “swap” with the other demonstrators at convention. I only made 25 this year and had swapped all of mine before the first hour was even over.
My swap uses the Clockworks stamp set in the background and features my favourite “Faux Stitching” along with the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper. This fabulous paper is part of the This and That Bundle which is available at a 15% discount, but only until this coming Friday – 31st May 2013. Feel free to contact me if you would like to know more about this bundle and how you can get hold of it, or if you would like to know how you can come along to next year’s Stampin’ Up! convention.
Off to do some stamping and creating now 🙂
