Oh my, oh my, oh my, how excited was I last week as I was packing and preparing my swaps to attend my first ever Stampin' Up! Convention - and it was in Disneyland Paris................... Stampin' Up! and Disney - my two most favourite things!!!!!
Well it was a whirlwind trip, manic, fun, exciting, lots of learning, loads of new things coming from Stampin' Up! over the next few months - plus I spent time with my team members, saw other familiar faces and met lots of lovely demos I'd not met before...........
For anyone who doesn't know much about Stampin' Up! or is new to my blog - basically Stampin' Up! hold a European Convention each November. Last year it was in the UK, this year in France, and next year it is in Germany. We were lucky enough to find out about the lovely stamp sets and DSP that are going to form the SALE-A-BRATION promotion from 24th January - 31 March 2012, and equally as exciting, we also found out that we will be getting a SPRING MINI CATALOGUE in the UK for the first time ever..................
Now it's forbidden for us to show the stamp sets, or any of the promotional literature prior to the launch of these two exciting things, but we are allowed to show completed projects made using all of the new goodies. I was very lucky and was a winner on a prize patrol and got to come home with a brand new punch and a la carte stamp, so as soon as I have put these into action I will show you my creations........
For now though, here are a few of the projects that were on the display boards:
