Session 1 & 2 Projects Extravaganza

Hi everyone

I am back with some of the projects from Extravaganza last Saturday.  I really apologise the light is awful for taking photo's but I home these projects will inspire you.....

Our first session was the Christmas Ornament, not as fancy as the one on the front of the seasonal catalogue, but I had to simplify a bit due to numbers etc.  Ladies and gents I am so pleased you enjoyed making this.

We used one of the stamps from the Ornament Keepsake set and the matching die, together with the snowflake die, linen thread and a jumbo pearl.  Our colour combo is very vanilla and baja breeze.

The second session included 2 heat embossed cards, a decorate box and DVD case. (all available through Stampin' UP!).  The box would hold some homemade cookies or jewellery and the DVD case perhaps a writing set.

Tomorrow I will bring you the final session which was 5 simple Christmas Cards using the Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags

A lucky it you?

At my launch party last month everyone entered into the raffle, so the pot was nice and full and I decided to put half the money towards my next class and then entered everybody into a draw for the remainder.

Here is a copy of the email I sent the lucky winner

Hi Mo
When you attended last months launch party you entered the raffle and I decided to split the amount and used half for the following months Monday class and the other half went into a random number generator so that everyone who attended could take part.
Everyone who attended was given a number and yours was 21. The generator picked you which means that you have won £25 worth of FREE product from any of the current stampin' Up! catalogues.
Please let me know what you would like and I will arrange the order for you.
Well done

I am sure this will come as a lovely surprise to Mo now I wonder what she will order??????

Hannah I are just off to Cheerleading practice!! well Hannah just sits and watches the routine and catches up with her friends whilst she is still on crutches.  I am hoping to pop into Gloucester and have coffee with a friend.  I hope you are having a great weekend and I will be back on Monday  XX

When I checked my emails yesterday I had received a lovely email from a lady who came to my workshop on Wednesday.

Here is part of her email

Please pass on to Sue (don't know her email) and Bev too please Beth!!

Looking forward to our next Stampin Up get together on Wednesday 30th January 2013 at 10.30am!!!!

I am busy today designing cards for a class tonight and I also need to start prepping for my extravaganza which is a week Saturday.....hopefully Paul will stop moaning about falling over my stampin' Up! box's which appear to be everywhere at the minute! once I have done this :)

Convention 2012 is over :(

I have just got back from our Stampin' Up! convention 2012 in Mainz Germany.  We all had an amazing time and over the next week I will share some photo's with you.

Today's photo shows Kerry, Jane, George and Bel at Heathrow Airport.....we had just eaten a full english breakfast! but hey we had been travelling since 4.30am!!!! and we were hungry

Don't they all look so excited?

After a good flight we had a slight problem with George's case, it came of the belt pretty wrecked and we had to leave her at Frankfurt airport whilst the airline replaced it and our taxi driver was going to pick her up when he returned back to the airport for his next pick while we were witing for her to arrive at the hotel this photo of Jane shows you what we were up tooooo...

Martini and bitter lemon was the drink.....About 3.45pm everybody decided they needed a little nap, which was great timing for me as I had the honour of being asked to take part on one of of convention classes and had a practice was  scheduled at 4pm with Rhoda Mcpherson who is another demo and Brain Pilling from the home office in Salt Lake City.  I managed to hide this from Jane and Bel until later on in the evening when they received their convention bags and programe of events.

Join me tomorrow for more......Oh and if reading this gets you about joining me at convention 2013 which will be in Manchester in the UK.  Contact me and I will tell you how you can.
