2013 Stampin' Up! Christmas Extravaganza......

Hello Again,
For this year's Christmas Extravaganza, I decided to use all of our lovely Kraft Gift Boxes.  Everything used in the Classes are all Stampin' up! Except the Bottle of Wine, which I am totally amazed that it was still in the box when I got home after two All Day Events......
We made three projects as usual.  I also changed the colour combination for this year. Instead of Red's and Greens, I went with Blues and Silver.
We used the Window box to make a set of cards and the matching box, which are ideal for jewellery items.  Six cards and envelopes fit into the Window Box.  They are already pre stamped with the pretty white image.
Next we used the Tag a Gift Box to decorate and I made a matching Gift Card Holder.  The choice was the ladies whether they wanted to make the gift box horizontal or turn it into a Small Wine Bottle Cover.

The third project was one of our Very Large 6" Square Kraft Gift Boxes using the Festive Flurry stamp set and framelits to decorate it.
You can find all these Kraft Gift Boxes online, there is also a special on until 30th November if you have a look.

These are all the three projects.  Instructions are available on the right hand side, if you want to play along.

I used the very popular Santa's List for the gift bags and Welcome Packs.

Using the Seasons of Style papers.
This is my lovely, lovely MUM - Sue.  She is my very best friend.  She helps me in so many ways and I wouldn't be able to do it with out her wonderful help. My Mum's Mum passed away at the beginning of October - Nanny Vera, so I am even more grateful for my Mum. 
I went back to Red's and Green's for the Table decorations.  I decorated candles this year with the Poinsetta stamp set.  Lots of work but I don't mind cutting out.

This is Debi.  She is one of my Downline with a hint of Val next to her, sorry for cutting you in half Val!
Debi was so pleased that she made her own bread for her lunch.  Super.
Thank you all so very much for coming along to my Broadstone and Yeovil Extravaganza's this year.
The next ones are 1st March Broadstone and 8th March Yeovil.
Booking is NOW OPEN.  Its a first come first Basis.
Email me to book your place, Closing date 1st February.
Thanks for looking,

Europe Convention 2013 in Manchester (UK) - Highlights

Hello Everyone,
What a Busy month I've had with Stampin' UP!
Two extravaganza's back to back, Week in the Peak District with my family for half term, normal weekly and monthly classes and then I have just been to Convention last week in Manchester.
The highlights video is above.  I've also celebrated my six year as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, the time certainly flies when you are having fun.
These are some of my lovely Team the Bloomin' Buds that managed to come along to Convention.
Marisa, Me, Jane, Tina, Jill, Maria and Nina.  Thanks Girls you are all great fun.

Maria and I were mucking about with Monica Gale with the 25 Balloons! Thanks Monica

I made these for my Team members that went to Convention.
My suitcase was as heavy going to the Manchester Convention as it was when I went on the Incentive Trip to the Salt Lake City Convention this year!
The next three years our Convention will be in Brussels.  Want to come along?  Its on 16th -18th October 2014.

I'll be back in a moment as I am trying to catch up with many many class instructions, thanks for being patient, I just got totally behind.
