I'm Back

Hi Everyone,

Yes I know it has been way too long since I have done any posting so I am going to try and be a bit more regular.

 To start off this return to my blog I would like to tell you of the wonderful day I had on Saturday at Stampin'  Up's Heartfelt day. I went as a guest of my friend Claire Day who is a Stampin' Up demonstrator. We had lots of fun getting our hands on the product tables to have a go at the new stuff coming out on September 1st. There were demonstration as well and the 3D flowers were great as was the card with the new glitter paper. We got make and takes as well. But I think my favourite thing of the day was the classes. We had 4 classes Decorations, Cards, Packing and wrapping paper and handmade gifts so many great ideas and the presenters were absolutely fabulous.

Here are a few shots from the day of inspiration: All are done by the lovely ladies at Stampin' Up

These were great cards just and example of the many that were shared with us on the day.

It was really a lovely way to spend the day if you would like to go in Brisbane, Perth or Sydney check out Claire Daly's blog and you will find some details there. There was so much inspiration I just wouldn't be able to put it all up here.


Now for a something from me that I have done this year that just hasn't gone up yet.

These next couple of things I did for Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia

This card was one that we had to do for the cyber crop and we had to have a playing card on it. I quite like how this one turned out.


For this next page I had to use primary colours large lettering and some bling. I decided to do something a little different for this one and it turned out ok.


Well I will be back again soon with some more fun stuff hope you are all well and that you have fun being crafty!

Take Care
Sharon
