Home from Brisbane ....

Hi there lovely paper crafters, well what an amazing week of ink, friends and ideas. I have just returned fro the best yet Stampin'Up!© annual convention which was held in Brisbane, we all had the most amazing time filled with so many great classes, outings, shopping, training, cocktail/dance party and so much more. I am bursting with so many new and exciting ideas I want to share with you all, but some things you will have to wait a little longer to see as they will be released in our upcoming new catalogue.
 I will take the next few days to show you some highlights from my trip and hopefully inspire you to maybe join in the fun with us all next year in Melbourne! This year's theme was " Be the Difference" and we are all certainly able to do this in so many different ways, one way Stampin' Up!©  have chosen to be the difference in the lives of sick children and their families is to join forces with "the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC®)".

Here's Ronald McDonald himself thanking our CEO and co founder Shelli Gardener for joining forces to help all the families of sick and hospitalised children in Australia, Shelli said " it's funny how Ronald always looks the same when he visits, but sometimes has a different accent". Of course all the countries that Stampin' Up! are set up in will be a part of this new and exciting way of "Making a difference" I'm so proud to be a part of such a generous and thoughtful company.
There is a great new stamp set which has been especially designed to go with this venture and proceeds from the sale of this stamp set will be also be given to the charity. You will be able to find the set and all the details on page 45 of your new catalogue.
 I will be posting more pictures every day, including some of me doing my demo in the "Product Showcase" area. So keep visiting, you may see someone you know ;-)
 Lots of inky hugs from...

Boutique boxes

 Hi there paper crafters, I hope this finds you all with ink on your fingers and if not at least on your mind ;-)
 A while ago I did a party for a young lady and her friends, this is the hostess gift I made for her using the gorgeous and very versatile Boutique Boxes kit from our current seasonal mini catalogue. The kit comes with 8 die-cut printed boxes with 16 paper buttons, 8 printed note cards (4 each of 2 designs).
1die cut printed paper embellishment sheet., 16 buttons, 8 each in 2 colours (summer starfruit and very vanilla) 4.6 m of Crumb cake bakers twine and 24 stampin'dimensionals.

I made this necklace using one of the Soda pop tops, also found in the same seasonal mini on page 24, I just flattened the pop top out a bit by putting it through the bigshot, then I cut some of our designer paper with a circle punch and stamped an initial on it, I stuck a few basic rhinestone jewels on for some bling, then just stuck it inside the pop top and covered it with Crystal effects. I made a small hole in the side of the pop top when the crystal effects had all dried and attached a cord to make it into a necklace. I made a little open box to put the pendant in and inserted that into the boutique box for a little surprise and she loved it.
I love the way all the Stampin' Up! products are so easy to coordinate and also how easy they are to work with, fun times ;-) If you would like a surprise gift, why not contact me about holding a little get together for you and your friends to learn a couple of inky techniques and make something gorgeous to take home.
