Gold Coast Stampin’ Up! Convention, Pillow, Pillow Gift

So here is the final “pillow gift” I have to share with you from convention.  It really is a PILLOW gift!


I couldn’t believe when I found these cushions a few months ago and knew they’d make perfect gifts for my roomies at convention.  They were easy to decorate using the Chalk Talk tags!  Cool hey!?

Blankie “Pillow Gift”. Stampin’ Up! Convention 2015, Gold Coast.

I thought I’d share with you another “pillow gift” I had made my roomie for convention a few weeks ago.  I used the Big On You stamp set which I love!  Unfortunately it won’t be available after June 2nd.  The Blankie was the softest throw that I have come across but I wasn’t sure how to decorate it.


I love the way the belly band turned out!  The Petite Petals stamps and co-ordinating punch made it a quick and easy project!

This & That Journal with 15% Discount.

Hi everyone!  I can’t believe that our Stampin’ Up! Convention is over for another year!  So much excitement leading up to it and it’s over so quickly!  It didn’t help that I was a little sick this time, and my voice struggled to work (so unlike me).  But it’s nearly back to normal!

  I wanted to pop in and remind you that the This & That Journal Bundle special ends on May 31st.  Have you seen this bundle?  It’s amazing!  I only just received mine a little before convention.  I was expecting a usual chipboard journal…. how surprised I was to open it up to discover pages of card weight patterned pages, pockets, envelopes  ALL inside the journal!  THEN the bundle also includes a pack of Designer Series Paper, Designer Stickers, Washi Tape AND a super cute rotary stamp with so many more uses than just a date stamp!  I was so surprised and excited!

I decorated four journal covers as room mate gifts for my Convention Roomies…  I was so excited about convention, that it wasn’t until I got home and looked at the pics that I realised I’d forgotten to add some ribbon to the journal spine… But here are three of the journals on the pillows… I printed out the Stampin’ Up! Convention logo for 2013 for the front cover, so that my roomies could document their convention fun:
