Melbourne Regionals

I'm back.  I know.... two days in a row - don't faint!!

As promised, today I have some photos of a few of the swaps I received from some of the very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who were at Melbourne Regionals on Saturday.

As you can see, I received quite a few swaps.

This is the card I made to swap.  It's intended to be a male Valentine's Day card, but could also be used for his birthday, anniversary etc.

Of all the swaps I received, this was my fave.  It was made by Leanne Spalliera.

And here are some others which are just gorgeous:

Unfortunately this swap didn't have a name with it, but isn't it gorgeous.

Rachel Woolard

These next two cards were made by my two gorgeous downlines:

Heather Tiley

And there were even swaps which weren't cards.

This little milk carton has some choccies in it (can you believe it - they are still in there after 3 days??)  Glyn Savage

Sherbet in this one....thanks Amanda Baker

Kaylene Schultz (guest) and Kimmy Meiklejohn

I have many other beautiful swaps, just too many to photograph.  It was a great day at Regionals which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Christmas Wreaths

Sorry I haven't posted for a little while.  Busy with Chrissy "stuff", Regional swaps and work.

I have a couple of Christmas wreath cards to show you today.  Now..... I can't take full credit for these cards as I've seen variations of them on other blogs.  I love surfing the web and looking at what other talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators create.

This first card uses an old fave stamp set of mine - Pocket Silhouettes.  I've used Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz ink and created the berries with red Fine Galaxy glitter.

This next card took a littler longer to create - okay, a whole lot longer to create.  To save a bit of time I'm quite sure I could have punched out less leaves and it would look just as good.  The leaves are punched from the two-step bird punch and the berries were punched from the two-step owl punch.

They're cute aren't they?

I attended Melbourne Regionals on Saturday (a seminar for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators) and can't wait to show you some of the fantastic swaps I received.  I'll be back shortly with some photos for you to drool over.........
