Queensland's Heartfelt Stampin' Up! Event

Hi everyone, well where have I been for the past few months.  Not far but totally busy with life and the kids and the hubby and you name it.  I'm so sorry for all my followers that I've taken so long to post.

On the weekend it was our turn for Queensland to have it's Stampin' Up! Heartfelt Event and wasn't it a  wonderful day jammed pack with displays, information, demonstrations and Products to see and play with.

This year I was on Product Playground helping with the Stamping Table.  I made a couple of things for the display boards one being a Christmas Wall hanging using the framelits and the gorgeous Stamp Set called Watercolour Winter.  I just love this set.   You may recognise that this is similar to one I made last year.

We also had to make something using the hostess set called "Christmas Wishes".   This is not a set I would normally choose to buy but I gave it a go and came up with these for the display.   Two little gift cards which have lots of paper piecing, multiple stamped images in different colours that I have cut out and pieced together to get a colourful image.

Here is my Santa Place Card for the Christmas Table.  My eldest son saw this and said is that what we are having for Christmas this year?   I guess now I'll have to make one for everyone at the table so as not to disappoint him.

Here is a card I made called an "Easel".   So simple to make yet very effective for a "Special Card" for a special person.  Again using Winter Watercolour along with the Holiday Ornaments and the wonderful new Coredinations Cardstock.

Here's a peek at the inside.

And lastly a "Joy Fold Card" to finish off the display.   I used the Winter Watercolour poinsettia image to make these flowers.  Stamping them three times and cutting out layers omitting the background leaves each time and then joining them together with a Vintage Brad.

I had such a wonderful time at the Heartfelt Event and look forward to convention now next year which is going to be held in the same place, Brisbane.

I promise I won't keep it this long between posts again.

Happy Christmas Stamping everyone.
