Team Get Together!

Firstly let me apologise for the quality of the photos - Melbourne has seen it's first icy blast of the coming Winter! The light as been bad all day - and to top it off one of our fuses has blown so we can only have half the house lit up at any one time. My DH did head down to the hardware to buy a replacement but there must be a problem in the wiring as the new fuse blew almost immediately!!! Great thing we have a friendly electrician!!!

On Saturday afternoon we had a team get together at my lovely upline Yvonne's house. Yvonne had a HUGE pot of soup on the stove, some fabulous work to see IRL and had organised for a shoebox make and take! I've never done one of these before so wasn't quite sure how it would all work - but it was sooo much fun - I got to learn a few things and play with some sets I don't have yet, as well as meet a few lovely demos I hadn't met yet - and catch up with others I had!!!

I thought you might like to see what ideas we came up with!

This first little project, a red faux leather bag, was put together by Yvonne - it was soo easy to make and yet looks amazing - watch out my stamp club - you may be making these soon - LOL.

I came up with this mini flower pot card - it's only a little thing but it too was a bit of fun! I CASEd it from Stamping School - but did change a few of the measurements to suit myself! Thanx to Carolann for inspiring this little project - it was well received!

You can see how small it is - the sentiments are stamped on a 1 1/4" square and the word window punches!

Amanda used the sweet Animal Crackers set to come up with this beautiful design. There was a few laughs over the bows being tied - but we got there in the end!

Philippa came up with this colourful layout using the Circle Circus set. It was great to have a chance to play with this set as many of us haven't got it yet - it's one we'll be receiving at Convention later in the week!

The All Together Owl card was designed by Leanne - I did change the images around a little to Leanne's designs - I was trying to use stamps that were sitting around while others were in use!

I love the way Leanne used the ribbons along the bottom.

Kerri came up with the sparkler for the day! The party hats are covered with Dazzling Diamonds and the toled "b" is drenched with pink glitter. Unfortunately I stamped my main image a little too low - Kerrie's looked a whole lot better with a bit more space between the layers. I would have popped the hats on top if I had realised before I stuck the main image down - ah well!!! I also used the re-inkers and baby wipes "ink pad" technique for the first time - it was a lot of fun so thanx for the lesson Kerri!

Love these creations Debbie, you must have had a great day. Thanks for the credit but your version looks sooo much better than mine. For a start the flower pot looks much better in blue. And you must have a punch to change the shape of my favourite "bloom".... may I borrow that one next time? I love looking at your work because its always so clean and crisp.

Tracey Old said...

I bet you all had a great day stamping together. Love the flowerpot card you designed. I might have to give that ago. I have just had a look through your blog and I must say you do some amazing work. I don't get much time to blog surf, I think I might have to find some so I can keep up with your lovely work. Have a great time at conference. I'm soooo sad I'm not comming. <:-(

Great Collection of WoW projects and terrific cards. I'm hoping when Yvonne gets some bandwidth back she'll have some directions posted :D

After looking at the fun you gals had I'm feeling inspired to try to get a similar group of demo's together in my area. Hmmm.....think they'd come even though I'm low man on the totem pole?

Hugs and blessings and enjoy your Convention - Jean
