Inspiration galore

The Inspiration at Convention came in abundance and I took as many photo's as I could to share with you …. I know for sure that I've missed a few amazing things and some just didn't come out clearly on my iPad to share with you … but I'm sure you'll get a good taster and be tempted by many a use of the lovely Stampin' Up! products.

I loved the curved detail of this card. A lovely way of adding dimension .

I so love the simplicity of these layouts. Layering of various off cuts of Designer Series Paper and punched out frames and embellishments, make for a very effective design.

You can't really see it here, but the white dots had a lovely shimmer of what appeared to be Dazzling Diamonds. It was such a pretty detail. 

This table Display was truly mind blowing. The time and effort that went in to this by Lisa Cornwall was outstanding. 

This too was designed by Lisa Cornwall, but sadly this photo just doesn't do it justice.

Aren't these holiday homes just gorgeous! … and complete with their own battery operated lights. 

I have seen so many of these pop up Box Cards, but I absolutely loved this one. The detail was just beautiful and the colour blending, perfect.

A truly unusual and unique shaped Advent Calendar. Very clever! 

Our son would love this … Punch art at its very best. 

Since posting this, I have finally managed to track down the creator of this masterpiece. Jo Blackman is a UK based Demonstrator and her blog can be found HERE.

I love everything about this … the colours the shape, the papers etc etc …. It is just so very clever. 

I will share some more projects with you over the coming days and of course some of the amazing swaps that I was fortunate to return home with. 

'til then

  1. I love that bottom one with the tree in the middle, haven't seen anyone do one of those before.. fab! Thanks for sharing the pictures, it's great to see all the different ideas.

  2. I know Emma, isn't it great!! I stood and looked at it for ages … so much work and so very effective. I just love the colours too … in fact, everything about it I love, expect for the fact it's sadly not going to be sat on my sideboard this Christmas … unless I get CASING it ;) x
