Stampin’ Australia – Convention 2011

I thought I was so organised last week and had everything organised before I left for Melbourne for our annual Stampin’ Up! Convention in Melbourne…. well everything except my blog posts!  And once we arrived there Tuesday night, there just wasn’t a moment free, so here I am finally to show you a few of my swaps.  The pics are a little sunny as I quickly took them before I left.

This first swap is using the Build a Cupcake Punch!  Can you see how?  The top of the icecream is the top of the cupcake from the punch, topped with the gorgeous little cherry.   The cone is just a triangle cut out and run through the Lattice Embossing Folder.

Colours are Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip & Pretty in Pink.

One of the fun aspects of convention is meeting up with our team members who live all over Austraila!  We held a team get together on Thursday evening in our apartment, and had nibblies, drinks and a special team swap.  It was heaps of fun and a great way for our team members to meet up with eachother so they had familiar faces at convention!  Each year our team has a little “thing” to identify eachother.  This year I thought some little ribbon flower badges using out beautiful striped grosgrain ribbon would be good.  So here’s what I came up with:

 I was able to source (thanks Yvonne 🙂 ) some cute brightly coloured scarves that seemed to suit our colours perfectly!  I wrapped some of our designer series paper around as a belly band, and attached the ribbon flower brooch.  I gave these to all of my first level team members!  Pretty cute hey!  All of my team members were able to get a flower brooch at our get together.  Thanks a heap to Chrissie for using her talent at sewing to produce all these flowers!

Our team get together was a heap of fun and the swaps were fantastic!  Was a very crowded apartment!

 

I’ll be back tomorrow, with more piccies and projects from convention!
