South Pacific Convention - Part 2

I can really begin to tell you how much fun Convention was. I think everyone should find the chance to attend at one point. I came back with so much information and just bursting with new ideas. Now I can't show you all the new goodies we got ( and we did get HEAPS!!!) but I can show you a few things I brought from Memento Mall...


And this was only a few bits of what we could have brought. Oh and a warning to all new Memento Mall goers, it is like a feeding frenzy when they lift the limits, so if you "Need" anything, get in quick lol.

The other part of Convention that I really enjoyed was swapping cards with fellow Demo's. It's such a great way to meet with other demos and share ideas. Here are a few of the swap cards I received.

OK, on Friday we managed to get some time to do 'Make and Takes', this is where we got to play with some new stamps and the in-colours. I cant actually show you any photos of the actually stamp sets, but I can show you what I made using them.


Oh and I have to share a photo of this amazing cake, that someone made (if you happen to know who it was, please let me know) It's amazing and must have taken ages. A real labour of love!!

And lastly we had an awards night, where we celebrate peoples hard work through the year. I didn't get to "walk the stage" this year, but seeing all those amazing demos, really inspired me to try for next year.

Doesn't convention look like fun!! you wanna come next year? contact me for more information on how to join my team The Closet Crafters. Oh and if your wondering where it will be held next year...

Hope to see you there next year!!!

Have Fun,

Woo Hoo Convention 2013 - Part One

I have just arrived home from Stampin' Up's South Pacific Convention and I can't even begin to tell you what a fantastic time I had.

This was my first convention as a demo and it was AWESOME. Made even more special because Stampin' Up were celebrating their 25th Anniversary!!!

OK, well I have tons of photos and fun stuff to tell you, but far to much to fit into one post. So I'll spread out my four days of fun over this week, so make sure you check back in later.

Right first things first, I took away with me my great mate and Downline Brenda and we flew out of Port Macquarie airport Wednesday morning and arriving in a very grey and dull Brisbane. Not that, that put a stop to us having a fun shopping day.

Us with our lovely "Mary Poppins" Umbrellas! Oh and I also wanted to share these cute little bag tags I made for us too, using the new Epic Day pattern paper and date stamp.

So, Thursday was our first official Convention day and it started with a bang... literately!!

The show was great, really entertaining. And the stage looked amazing too. It's a little bit of a sneak peek of the catty front cover...

Shelli gave an amazing opening speech and really made us feel like one HUGE, big, happy family. I still can't believe there was 700 demo's there!!!

Well that's all I can share for tonight, but I can't leave without showing this fun photo of Brenda showing off her all attendees prize give away!!

Doesn't she look happy!! A pack of Silver goodies to celebrate our Silver Anniversary. What could be more perfect!!!

Have fun,
