Today is all about swaps and team goodies. Today is the first day of the Stampin’ Up! European convention, it’s the 3rd one we have had and in case I didn’t mention it before we are in DISNEYLAND Paris !!!!
Today is a full day, doors open at 8am with a jam packed program until 5pm and then it’s off for a quick shower and change for the awards dinner. I am so excited about the awards, last year 5 of us from the Inspiring Inkin’ team where in the top 25, Stampin’ Up! have changed the ranking system this year and I am hoping for more of my team to be recognised for their amazing achievements ! I will give you a full report when I am home.
So when ever we get together we always swap cards and 3D items, this is my general swap card I have made about 85 of these. I have used the Take a Sip Wheel, Everything Eleanor, Sprizter and Posy Punch too. The designer series paper is called Well Worn and that along with Cajun Craze and River Rock are the themed colours running throughout the projects.
There are 14 of us from the team attending so these are the goodies I have made for them.
Bag Charm, everyone needs these there are 300+ demo’s at convention and we will all have the same bag so you need something to show that the bag is yours, their name is on the back.
Each person has a notebook, very important, the inspiration and information we receive at convention is amazing, and so much that you have to write it down because you will never remember it all!
I have up scaled the swap card a little just for my team, by adding a different colour mug and some Crystal effects.
and finally this 3D item was inspired by one of my lovely new team members Clair. I ran her launch workshop for her last week, and this was the project she demonstrated, it’s a fab paper purse and the perfect size to gift wrap an Inspiring Inkin’ convention tradition, a dragonfly. This year they are brooches, and in the back of the purse are some after eight mints !
