I had the most amazing time in Sydney - we just got back at 2am this morning! Plane was an hour late and by the time we got thru with all our shopping......... LOL
I lost my camera over there unfortunately so I have no photos to share with you, so pleased I had taken off all my pics off the memory stick before I went! But once I get access to other peoples photos I will post some.
I have to spend some time with the family and catching up around the house (you would be amazed at how much stuff needs to be done! lol) so it will be a day or two before I have something to post for you, so keep checking back!
The Stampin' Up! convention was amazing, I have come back with so many ideas and inspiration. The best part was meeting other demos, and the SU staff etc. Neat to be surrounded by like minded people! Oh and I got a surprise by finding out that I got in the top 10 of New Zealand demos! I was blown away!! I feel chuffed as this was my first full year, I have only been a demo since Feb 09. SO thank you to all my lovely customers and wonder down lines who helped to get to this point!! Also the other wonderful demos who have helped me along the way. Ok 'Oscar' speech over! blahahaha
see you again soon.

Lucky for me these handbags lie flat so makes travelling with them very easy. I am taking them on as hand luggage as I would be so upset if they got lost with my bags! I just hope the little brads in them wont cause me delays at airport security!! They are made from a 6"x6" piece of DSP instead of the 12"x12" DSP I usually use.
So I wont be posting anything till I get back next Wednesday as I don't know what Internet access I can get and I am not clever enough to preload posts before I go. But keep popping in just in case!

this weeks class we are making flowers - all sorts of flowers.
There are so many different types you can make out of paper, they can go on cards, scrap pages or a 3D item.
These pretty ones are one of the easiest things to make - believe me!! You will be surprised at just how easy they are!! I have used the scrummy top note die with the Old Olive card stock, then run it through the Big Shot again in the polka dot embossing folder. The leaves are a Big Shot die too. Finished off with a Elegant Eggplant bow. I decided that this card didn't need a sentiment - I thought it would distract from the flowers. I hope the friend that I made this for will enjoy it as much as I did making it.
Contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve you spot at my class this week. I wont be having any classes on the 24th as I will still be in Sydney for the Stampin' Up! convention. I will look forward to sharing with you all the new info and exciting things I will learn while I am away. Plus the 100 or so cards etc that I will be 'swapping' with other SU demos. I will tell you about those tomorrow.
thanks for visiting

I used the wonderful Medallion stamp on the first one. This is such a useful stamp. The black flower is from another hot set at the moment - Vintage Vogue. The top note die puts those cute stitch marks on the card which I have just drawn faux thread with my trusty black journerling pen. I then just hand cut the black card underneath, which you probably guessed as its a wee bit wonky! hehe And don' t you just love all the Baja Breeze, I am so glad that this colour is now going to be a core colour so we can enjoy it for years to come.
On the second card I have used the new level two stamp set. I stamped the image with Versamark then used white embossing powder. You need to remember to rub the card stock that you are wanting to heat emboss with the little anti static pillow - Embossing Buddy. This takes the static out of the card and helps the embossing powder stick only to the Versamark, not spotted all over the card. This gives a much clearer embossed image. I made a small frame and then sponged on the inside to create the background image on the Top Note die. I love the effect that this gives. I have used some of the Urban Garden DSP and one of the lovely Stampin' Up! buttons, sorry I can't recall which pack it came out from as I mixed all mine up! whoops! hehe. Just a bit of Linen Thread to finish it all off.
I am getting excited as in two weeks time I will be in Sydney to attend the Stampin' Up! Convention 2010. This will be my first convention, so spending two days with fellow demonstrators is going to be mind blowing I think! I hope to come home with so many cool ideas and ways to help make your paper crafting experience even better! I have the last weekend in May free for a workshop so why don't you contact me to book the first workshop after the convention and benefit all the information and enthusiasm the convention will bring. And don't forget I still have the offer of a free stamp set for all orders in May over $100.
SO there's lots of reasons to get your friends together. Contact me on email@example.com
thanks for visiting.
ps. there is no prize for spotting my spelling mistakes! LOL

this 'stepper' card is made using it, you have to fold the card a special way and then the whole card goes thru the Big Shot. It took a LOT of trial and error to work it out, trust me! hehe
I used Whisper White, Mango Mambo and Certainly Celery. The stamp set is Cottage Garden, one of my favourites from the last mini Autumn-Winter Catalogue. I have put Dazzling Diamonds on the flowers cause you can never have to much BLING!!
If you would like to learn how to make this card come to my class on Monday 10th May. Remember classes are 12.30-2.30pm and 7.30-9.30pm and are only $NZ15. Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more information.
