Convention 2015

Sweet Treats for Friends!!

Hello,

As I was going thru my camera roll, I realized I didn't share my pillow gifts that I gave to my convention friends. I wanted something that I could assemble once I was in there and easy to pack in my luggage. As I was going thru the Annual Catalogue, I came across this adorable Fry Box and knew it was the perfect project to CASE!!

You can find this adorable sample on page 55 on the Annual Catalogue. I'm showcasing the new All about Sugar stamp set and the coordinating Fry Box BizL Die. The best part is that you can purchase this set as a bundle and save 15%!!

Convention Display Boards

Hello,

One of the highlights for me at convention is seeing all the display boards. This year Stampin' Up! asked us to bring a swap card to display on the boards. By the end of the week, these boards were filed with tons of inspiration that showcased a variety of stamp sets!

I thought it would be fun to share those displays boards with you...have fun!!

Lots of Joy Swap Card

Hello,

Wowzers, I have been dragging my butt since I got home on Sunday evening. Not sure if it's jet lag, lack of sleep or just my body saying " You need to rest after that crazy week!" So I spend most of the days on the couch, trying to catch up and relax. Plus I have been getting back into my normal eating schedule and I feel so much better today!! It's amazing how much your body misses that!

While I was at Convention, I joined Ronda Wade's Creating Success swap group. We met on Friday after lunch and I swapped with 45 talented demonstrator's. This was the first time that I did something like this and it was so much fun that I can't wait to do it again!!

The requirements were to create a card with 3 layers and an embellishment and we could use any stamp set of our choice. While I was searching for a sketch online, I came across this one on Mojo Monday. As soon as I saw the sketch I thought it would be perfect for a Christmas card!

I had the new Lot's of Joy stamp set sitting on my desk and I thought this set would be perfect for this sketch!!

July Blog Photo's-025I used the new Merry Moments Designer Series Paper as an accent piece for one of my layers! I love the colours in this paper pack as they just scream Christmas fun!!

Very careful, I inked up the bottom part of the ornament with Cherry Cobbler ink and then used a Smoky Slate marker, I coloured the hook part of the ornament. Gave a quick huff on my stamp (to re moisten the ink) and then stamp it onto my Whisper White circle! Of course, I had to finish it off with some bling and a Cherry Cobbler Twine bow!!

I will be sharing more highlights from Convention with you over the next few days!!

Convention Swap #3

Hello,

I can't believe that today is the last day of Convention! This week just flew by!! This morning I have classes and closing session till lunch time. Something new that Stampin' Up! is starting this year is they are doing a Leadership session, I'm so excited as I also wanted to go to Leadership but with work I could never get the time off.  So this afternoon I will be having lunch and a leadership training with some of other top demonstrators. I can't wait to share more with you next week!!

A quick post as we are about to head to the convention center!! My swap today is a case from yesterday's swap, I just switched up the colours!!

One of my favourite techniques right now is sponging ink on the negative side of embossed cardstock. I embossed my Watermelon card stock with the Large Polka Dot Impressions Folder and then using a sponge dauber and Watermelon ink, I inked up the circles. This creates a fun monochromatic feel to your project!

Convention Swap #1 - Awesomely Artistic

Hello,

Today is the first day of Inspire, Create and Share 2015 and we are just about to head over to the Convention Center to pick up our bags and line up for general session. I will be posting pictures of product displays boards, swaps, general session and so much more on my Facebook page Stamp with Anne.

I decided last week that I would make some swaps so I could swap with other demonstrator's during the convention. I ended up making 50 swaps for general swapping and then I'm in an organized swap where I had to make 45! The best thing about swapping is you meet new friends and you come home with fabulous new idea's to showcase in your classes!!

My swap today was a card that we made last week in Coffee and Cards. When I was done creating this card, I knew that I had to make it for one of my swaps!

July Blog Photo's-013

I love the soft tone to this card and all the layers!! The neat thing about the Awesomely Artistic stamp set is that it's perfect for collage stamping. What is college stamping...just randomly layering stamped images!!
