Pillow gifts from Brisbane Stampin'Up! Convention

I am still busy sorting everything that I brought home from Convention. I still haven't had time to study each of my lovely team swaps plus my general swaps yet. Well Friday is stamping day so I will make it a priority for then if I don't get a chance before then.

Here is my stash of swaps, gifts and Stampin'Up! giveaways ( except they are all hidden under the cushion as they are new product from the upcoming catalogue and we can't show them to you yet! )

Somewhere there, there is a tiny bit of the new catalogue peeking out!

Here is the lovely gift I received from my roomie and downline Nicole Goding. She creates such cute gifts. You can see her creative designs here.

It is a super cute bracelet made using Stampin'Up! Regals buttons. Nicole picked my colour family superbly and I proudly wore this to Convention on Day 1. It matched my outfit perfectly. 

For my pillow gift I gave my roomies a memory book to create their own Convention memory book. this is the same book I am teaching in my classes this week. I monogrammed them using the Big Shot Bigz alphabet set - typeset Alphabet.

The back three have DSP Twitterpated covers and the four front ones use Sent with Love DSP for the front covers. I gave these to my four downline who earned the Grand Vacation Incentive trip to Utah. Well done Simone Bartrum, Tracy Penn, Juliana Main and Maureen Crameri!!!

I also received a gorgeous smash book from roomie Chris Parker-Barnes. You can see it in the top left of the photo showing my Convention stash. I thought I had a photo of it but I can't find it among the 800+ photos I have taken at Convention! Sorry Chris! You ca see a better photo on Chris's blog.

Thanks for coming by for a look at my blog! I'll be back with more soon.

Australian Convention Brisbane 2013

My apologies for not getting on here yesterday. If you have ever been to a Stampin'Up! Convention you will know just how busy it can be - not just all the great happenings at convention but all the socialising as you catch up with your team of demos and demos from interstate that you have not seen since last convention.

We are having a fabulous time and seeing wonderful presentations and creative ideas. I've played with My Digital Studio and I have to say I am hooked!!!! Love what you can create and it is all so much easier than I thought it would be! Go and try it with the free 30 day download available in my online shop.

Lots of all attendee give aways!!!! Three so far PLUS the 2014 annual catalogue!!! LOVE IT!!!! Just as well I have that half empty suitcase to pack it all into. Typing this over a quick breakfast before heading off for another day of fun and creativity. Sorry there are no photos to show just yet - will try and upload tonight.

Awards night and Afterparty last night - soooooo much fun. the new concept of the after party was terrific. Great band - we all danced and danced, a photo booth ( that was hilarious! ) and loads of yummy sweet desserts to nibble on.

Will try very hard to get back on here tonight........

Leadership Day at Convention 2013

What a fabulous day and convention hasn't even officially started! Leadership session was great this afternoon but the highlight was Managers Reception tonight. It was wonderful to catch up with so many demonstrator friends plus my terrific downlines. Of course my first photo has to be of Shelli! How good is the Brisbane Eye in the background.

Here is our place setting with the floral arrangement on each table.

Playing on the giant screen was a roll call of all the demonstrators present. Here's me!

Managers Reception ends with gifts and look at these awesome tins ! Inside was a cute new stamp set from the upcoming annual catalogue - sorry I can't show you that yet.

One last photo. Me!

 Big day today , bigger one tomorrow!

Off to Brisbane for Australian Stampin'Up! Convention 2013

Tomorrow is the big day! I'm off to Brisbane, Queensland for the 2013 Australian Stampin'Up! Convention. My team and I have been planning our trip up there since last years Convention in Canberra. And after all our planning tomorrow is the day!!!!!! There are 40 members of my Inksationals team making the journey. This year is a special event as Stampin'Up! is celebrating 25 years in business - their Silver Anniversary!

I have spent ages making team and general swaps. I started planning my team swaps at the start of the year and have been making them since March. I got everything finished last night,what a great feeling to have them all completed. Here are some photos of them en mass before I packed them into my half empty suitcase. ( A demonstrator goes with a case that is big and empty so as to fit in all the purchases that she will make in Memento Mall at Convention!!!!)

These are my team swap. I loved creating my swaps with Stampin'Up! Designer fabrics.

                                                     Below are my general swaps.

I'll try and find time to update my blog while I am in Brisbane. Tomorrow night is Managers Reception for all Demonstrators who are Manager or above. It is a special event to share time with Stampin'Up! CEO Shelli Gardner and is a highlight of Convention. I'll tell you all about tomorrow night!
