Convention Projects

I have to admit, I've had my Convention projects sitting by my stamping table, just begging to be finished. So that's just what I did over these past few days. We got these four projects at Convention, but there was just not enough time to stamp them all up. I think I got half-way thru one, but then had to go along to the next talk about Leadership which I really didn't want to miss. Anyway, I had lots of fun finishing them off at home, so here they are:

This first card uses Cicle Circus and is called Thinking of You Card. I love they way we had to make flowers from the stamps. A clever idea.

This card uses Trendy Trees and is called Trendy Trees Thanks Card. This is one of those stamp sets that does work best if you use the Stamp-a-ma-jig, especially is you want it all straigh and in the correct position. Although it takes a little bit longer to make a card using this tool, the end result is def. worth it. I love this card!

This next project is the Trendy Trees Card Pack. This is four small note cards and a bag to hold them. For the bag, we used a plastic sleeve and then slipped a piece of Designer Paper in, the same size as the bag. Using the window punch, you then punch thru all the layers and add the chocolate ribbon to tie it up.
Each small card uses one of the trees and the sentiment. This would make a great workshop project or gift.

Then we have the Fold Out Scrapbook Page. This is what I started at Convention, but only got half way. It's a really nice idea and only uses one sheet of 12x12 as the base. You can basically decorate it as you wish. I have kept mine simple and used the embellishments that we received. The blank square needs to be filled in with some journalling.
So these are the fabulous projects we got to make and take home from Convention. I'm so glad I've finished them off and can now include them in my displays.

Hiya Chatelle, thanks so much for sharing these, it is nice to see what you lucky ladies got to make at convention. Thanks for sharing. I think my fave would have to be the Trendy Trees card but then again I love the way the bag is finished with the note cards & the fold out scrap page is a fantastic project......& can't leave out the circle circus, a set I don't have but am thinking I really do NEED to buy it :)
Thank so much for sharing
