Stampin Up Convention Paris 2011

Hello Stampers

As you can see from the photos we were in Disneyland Paris.  Some of the Pink Ladies and of course Mickey Mouse.

A great time was had by all (well as far as I know it was).  More photos to follow.

Convention Swops

Hello Stampers,

Well here they are in the process of how I achieve 100.  I decided to do it by stages to make it work for me.
The first stage was to stamp them on onto the card and cut them to size.

Then colour them all in, Old Olive will never look the same to me, along with glittering the berries to make them sparkle
Then mounting them onto Early Expresso card, Embossing Old Olive card (this is a brill way of combating bingo wings), adding the ribbon (which ran out Lynney Fahey and Vicky Hayes had to come to the rescue, THANK YOU GIRLIES)
Then the finished article, and believe me when I say, i'm glad they are finished, will start earlier next time :-)

I hope you like them and I hope they are liked by the Stampin Up Demos that will be receiving them this weekend. 
Thank you for visiting my blog.

Stampin Up Convention

Hello Stampers,

On Thursday I travel to Paris for the Stampin Up Convention.  This is a convention where all the European Stampin Up Demonstrators can go and get training and meet other demonstrators.  Last year it was held in UK (Croydon) but this year we get to go to PARIS (Thats in France just on case anyone was wondering!!!!)

At the weekend Lynney Fahey and I were busy making 100 swops, and believe me it was hard work, you could actually lose the will to live stamping the same thing 100 times, they mounting them onto the card, cutting the card, cutting the ribbon, well you get the idea, if we hadn't had each others company to help and make each other laugh, I don't think I would have managed 100 (actually it was slightly over 100 as I had lost count by that time).

Will be unloading the efforts we went to on Friday so you can see what I will be swoping :-)

Hello Stampers,

Sorry I haven't blogged recently but I have been a bit busy with things.

I visited the NEC Hooby Craft Fayre at the weekend, to see what the craft world was offering and was a little disappointed that there was nothing new out there. 

Popped over to the Stampin Up Stand to say "Hello" to the girlies, who were busy chatting to new potential customers and demonstrators.  Good Luck Girlies :-)

I promise I will post some cards next week, as I need to get some swops sorted for the Stampin Up Convention next weekend and I need to make 100 of them and I haven't even started yet!!!!!!!

So until next time HAPPY CRAFTING.

Thank you for viewing my blog.
