Baby, We've Grown - Stampin' Up! ESAD Blog Hop
Cardmaking Ideas at the Papercraft Expo

Happy Stampin' Weekend!

Well, we have an exciting weekend in Stampin' land! Tomorrow we are off to the Melbourne Scrapbooking and Papercraft Expo, so there's lots of creativity going on today to share with you on the Stampin' Up! stand at the show tomorrow.

We'll be doing Make & Take projects and product demonstrations at the show and have lots of lovely things to show you - so we hope if you're in Melbourne and planning a visit to the show on Sunday, that you'll come and say "Hi".

What have I been making lately?

During the Occasional Catalogue & Sale-a-bration pre-order period for Stampin' Up! demonstrators, the girls on my team participated in a card front swap. We do these to share cardmaking ideas and so that everyone has a wide variety of project samples using brand new products from the upcoming catalogue. That saves each of us from having to buy all the products from day one, and gives us lots of inspiration!

Nine ladies participated in the swap, each making 12 card fronts - 2 different designs, 6 of each.

Here are mine.

Happy Congratulations Card

This card uses the new stamp set Happy Congratulations, and the Sketched Birthday stamp set from our Annual Catalogue. The background paper is Watercolour Wonder DSP from our Occasions Catalogue.

The next six I created used the Petite Petals bundle (stamps and punch) the new Scallop Tag Topper Punch and another of the designs from the Watercolour Wonder DSP for the background.

Love the colours in the paper - so easy to make pretty, co-ordinating cards!

Well, that's it from me today - I do hope you'll pop by the stand and see us tomorrow if you at the craft show - see you then!
