One of the fantastic things about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is having the opportunity to attend Stampin' Up! events. So, I've been lucky enough to spend the last few days down in Canberra, with about 400 other demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand, learning and chatting and laughing and celebrating - it was a fantastic time! I'll have some more images to post over the next few days about the things we did and all the goodies we received!
At Stampin' Up! events I always try to participate in swaps - I make abunch of cards in 1 or 2 designs and swap them with other demonstrators for a card they've made, so that we can share ideas and see different ways of using our stamp sets. So, I made about 60 cards to swap, in 2 different designs, using "Thoughts and Prayers" and "Owl Together Now" (some of you may recognise that card!)
In return, I received a stack of fantastic samples back from other people. There's loads of great ideas there, so I can't wait to go through them more closely. If you're over at my place for a class, then you're very welcome to have a look at them, too!
