European Convention 2013! (Part 3)


So, my craft room has made more progress. I have to say, and I hate to admit it because I really HATE cleaning and tidying but it feels so good when things are tidied. I just don't enjoy the process of getting there! 

Pretty cards and scrapbook pages <3
Love, love, love this page using gingham garden designer paper
Didn't realise this was a bit blurry but just loved the chevron style done with strips of washi tape!
Simple and elegant
More inspiration!
Some gorgeous 3D items!
Beautiful paper beads made with designer paper and crystal effects - so easy and just gorgeous!!! 
I think that's enough for you today! Check back tomorrow for another installment of photos. Sorry some of the pics are a bit blurry.

European Convention 2013! (Part 2)


I'm back today with some more photos from convention today. Enjoy!

Isn't this such a stunning wreath? Its made using the Posy Punch and the Flower Shop stamp set!! 
General inspiration board
Love this!! Such a clever idea having the Apothecary Accents framelit split in half so the two sides meet in the middle! 

Inspiration board using the stamp set Gorgeous Grunge (another of the free sets we received)

Love this card! The splatters look so fun and fresh in the bright colours! 
Love the watercolour type splodges
More bright fresh and colourful Gorgeous Grunge splodges

Cute flower wreath!!
Another inspiration board
I'll be back tomorrow with some more photos of convention! Hope you're enjoying all this inspiration! I am certainly inspired but trying to be good and get some boring stuff (tidying the craft room) out of the way first. I made a good start on the craft room yesterday afternoon - there's floor and work top visible now but there is still a long way to go! It will feel so good when it is done though! 

Happy Stampin',

European Convention 2013! (Part 1)

Hi there!

I've just returned from Manchester for European Convention. This was my first time at convention and all I can say is WOW!! I had such a great time, despite being ill (really awful spinning head, migranes etc...yuk). You'll be pleased to know I am feeling a LOT better today.

So today I wanted to share a few photos of the awesomness! Enjoy!

So excited for what was to come!!

There were boards and boards of gorgeous samples to spark our creativity. I took LOTS of photos...

Such a sweet gift box using the RMHC stamp set, Tag It.

Isn't this just a great idea for using the pennant punch to do a scrapbook page...that isn't banners or bunting!?
More samples using the Tag It stamp set.

Another gorgeous lay out combining punched shapes and stitching! 
And I could continue showing you photos and swaps all day but I'll finish my photos here for today. I'll have more for you tomorrow!

Happy Stampin',
