This card was made at Retreat 2011. I cased this card from a web site and I liked the card so much I wanted to copy it.  I changed a number of the products as I didn't have all the same materials and tools and wanted to make it using only Stampin' Up! products.  I loved how it turned out.
I really enjoyed creating this card and love working with neural colours.
This card was the first 6 x 6 size card I have ever made and I was so proud of it. The design kind of just came together.  I was very happy with the colour combination and layout.  The more cards I make the more I understand that cards are just small scrapping pages.
Here is another card that I put together at Retreat 2011. This card idea came to me whilst I was working with the stamp set, Elements of Style.  Amazing what my creative mind can come up with when I put it to work!
I made this card at Stampin' Up! Retreat weekend September 2011. My upline Shannean organises a three day stamping and scrapping get away each year.  We have so much fun.  I was excited to win the swaps competition and other awards over the weekend, sorry Mette to pip you at the post!

The card is stamped in white using Baroque Motif.  The cardstocks are blushing bride, early espresso and I highlighted some of the embelishments are popped using vanilla smooch, diamentes and crystal effects.

I really enjoyed experimenting and was so happy when it all came together effortlessly.

Convention Convention Convention

Wow! Great news for all you stampers and scrappers if you get an account with Stampin'Up! between 1st March and 25th May you can get $50 off your registration for Convention this year. Is that great or what? Every paper crafter should go to Convention as it is fabulous. If you know a demostrator you can go as a guest or better still join up and go as a demonstrator. This year it is in Canberra Convention on the 31st May to 2nd June. I WILL BE THERE. My first time was last year which was at Melbourne Convention. I had the best time meeting other stampers from all over Australia and New Zealand.
