Melbourne Regionals

It has been a week now since I travelled to Melbourne, to the Stampin' Up! Regionals. I travelled down with Sue, a very good friend, unbelievable customer and work mate and Cheryl who I have meet in recent months, through SU. Cheryl has been a SU hostess, great customer and now, CONGRATULATIONS Cheryl a SU Demonstrator. Cheryl signed up after the Regionals and is very excited about joining the team.
We all gathered at the Melbourne Conference Centre to listen to SU staff praise the Australian Demonstrators at how well we are going. That's thanks to our customers and the excellent product well sell. So thank you all very much for supporting me and our team.
We enjoyed making 4 make and takes, and seeing the upcoming new products. Very exciting, you will love them. OK here is a peek at the make and takes.

This is the thanks card folder we made, with the new Live Your Dream Stamp Set, and New Afternoon Tea Designer Series 12 x 12 Papers.

This is the 6 x 6 scrap page, that I still have to add a photo too. Notice the new Square Scallop punch I used, Its great.
This is a thanks card, using the same Stamp Set and Designer Series Papers just added some 5/8" gross grain Choc Chip Ribbon. Gorgeous isn't it.

The last one is the Thanks Matchbook Card. Notice the Scallop along the bottom each. That's the new Scallop edge punch. All the samples are very simple but very effective.

If you would like to learn how to make any of the above just contact me on my email and if you live in the area we could organize a workshop and show a couple of these.

Thanks for looking, Happy Stamping,

Cheryl

Stamp & Stack

On the Thursday before I headed off to Melbourne Stampin' Up! Regionals, I held a day at Murrray Downs Resort for a Christmas Stamp & Stack. 12 ladies took part and all had a great day. They were organizing me for the next one to be held before they left, so that was a good sign. We enjoyed great company, excellent food, and Stamped and created brilliant Christmas cards with Stampin' Up! products. Thank you to everyone for coming. Here are a few pictures of the ladies who participated.
