12 Blogs of Christmas

Welcome to everyone who is on the blog cruise. Hope you are enjoying your voyage. Thanks to Claire .

I have two projects to show you today. One is a miniature box in a bag in christmas characters. Ideal for little treats for the children. Santa was made in Real Red and Basic Black. His buckle is a ribbon slide from the hodgepodge set. The snowman is made in Whisper White with a hat and coals in Basic Black, Only Orange nose.

Next is my box of christmas tags. This box was demoed at Convention and I loved it. Pam made it with tags using Flight of a butterfly. I decided to make the box with christmas tags. I used the stamps from Spotlight on Christmas as this is perfect for the SU punches. I also sneaked in the Christmas stamp from the hostess set Punches Three.

Lastly to win a prize of some fab Stampin' Up! goodies, leave a comment and one lucky winner will be pick on Sunday night.

Ok, ready for your next stop. Click on the icon below to visit your next blog. Hope you have enjoyed your stay.

Next stop Debbie.

Convention 2009 in Frankfurt.

Where has this last week gone. I had a blast last weekend in Frankfurt at Stampin' Up! first European Convention. I'd like to thank my Scottish buddies for making it so enjoyable. In this picture is Annie, Anne and Lynne. In the middle are the dynamic duo Demo Support Chris and Eileen who have the sometimes unenviable job of sorting out our problems.

Next year, convention is going to be London. So I'm hoping my team will beable to make it. I took part in some general swaps with not only other UK demonstrators but German and French demos too. Wow, what can I say. There is a lot of talent out there ladies. Thank you all so much. I also took part in an organised Card Candy swap on forum. I'll post some pictures up later, but although most people did say they struggled (myself included), and not everyone completed theirs I think we were all blown away with the results.

On the Friday night, there was a big Gala Dinner after which Shelli Gardner (CEO and founder of Stampin' Up!) presented prizes. Well done to all the girls who walked the stage. Fantastic achievements.

Quick Christmas Card

This card has been created using products from the Christmas Extravaganza Offer. Old Olive Cardstock, Real Red 5/8" Grograin ribbon. Patterned paper from the Christmas Jingle Scrapkit. The star and joy circle come from Spotlight on Christmas Stamp set along with the background swirl. And how can I forget my favorite buttons from Latte designer button pack.

Purchasing these products would have got me a FREE tag punch during the christmas everything to complete my christmas cards.
