The Stampin’ Up! Regionals in London were a blast! I had so much fun, am feeling very motivated and creative and met some great ladies.
I travelled down Friday afternoon with 2 other members of Caroline’s team and we arrived in time for the fun stamping evening put on by Heather Summers at Kings College. We had a lasagna dinner and then got to make some beautiful cards and a box using the 5th Avenue Florals set. Here is one of the cards we made, isn’t it nice!
Saturday saw us heading over the London Convention Centre for a day of stamping and ideas! I did not manage to get all of my make and takes made (so will have to work on those later this week) since I was too busy meeting people, swapping and checking out the WOW! Projects at the rear of the room. The presentations were so inspirational and left us all feeling creative!
This is a picture of my swap I made.
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Scallop Die, Clear Circle Die, crimper, key tag punch, stampin’ dimensionals
This was the result of frustrations at the end of a long day. I was having trouble getting my card to look the way I wanted to, so I let Dave play around with my pieces I had put together and we ended up coming up with this together. I hand cut all of the cupcakes out and crimped the cup part.
I will post some of the cards we made and Ideas I picked up throughout this week.
Sunday had us leaving Toronto early to head down to Kincardine for a brunch at my parents to celebrate my sisters marriage. We celebrated with my grandparents, parents, aunt and her partner, my brother and his girlfriend. It was the first time we had all been together since Thanksgiving so was definitely overdue.
After eating we sat down all of us ladies and planned out my sisters reception invitations so we could get the materials ordered to get on with making them. We chose to go with turqoise and chocolate brown with a beach theme. I can’t wait to see what they will look like once they are made up. Don’t worry, I will post a picture once we get them done.
Once I get caught up on finishing my make and takes and getting the reception invitations made I will then have to really focus on the scrapbook I told my sister I would make for her for her wedding gift. They keep bumping the date of the reception closer and I want to have it done for this so I will have to get my butt in gear. Any ideas or layouts people have would definitely be appreciated so that not all of my pages end up looking very similar. I am all about variety and with this having been a spontaneous wedding on the beach in Cuba, anything goes!
