Stampin Up! Convention - Melbourne 2011

Some of the things I LOVE LOVE LOVE about convention is the wonderful projects we see... The fantastic swaps we receive and the Awesome fun and inspiration that is ALWAYS had...
Here are just a few photos of the swaps I received... And I have already made a few that were inspired by these in my weekly classes and some of my workshops.... Thank you to all the wonderful people who swapped with me... You are all AMAZING!!!!  I tried to group the photos so that there was not 70 individual photos.......

 I received some fantastic 3D projects... and some great use of other materials like Shrink plastic earnings, Scallop circle flower ring... Denim pocket pouch... and some lovely mini canvas art

Stampin Up! Convention - Melbourne 2011 Swaps Bright

These are some AWESOMELY made more male cards.....   The motorbike one at the back with the Extreme Elements as the back ground has been a HIT.... Everyone I have demoed it with has LOVED it!!! Thank you Miriam Spiess!!! Creative Genius... And of course I had to purchase the Extreme Elements after seeing this card.. because it is a FANTASTIC and versatile stamp set for either Male or female cards.... I've never even noticed it before!!! My what a change a swap can make...
The other cards are just as brilliant only I find I have to purchase more stamp sets to recreate them.... In time... (*sigh)

Shabby Chic and Butterflies... I am thinking that Shabby Chic could be my new love!!! I am feeling a bit of a style enhancement coming.... The one in the back left corner was made by Michelle Corbett... And i have shared it at a couple of the community craft groups.. using the new stamp set that we received as our convention stamp set... Oh my it looks lovely.. Thank you for your inspiration Michelle!!!
And I am TOTALLY loving the one in the front Center created by Michelle Zahra.... (Man these Michelles are creative!!! It must have something to do with their name??) I can't wait to re create this one!!!
