|Coastal Cabana & Rich Razzleberry|
I stamped the I Love Lace background stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock for the front cover and sponged the edges of the paper for an aged/distressed look.
|Baked Brown Sugar & Blushing Bride|
I used the Four You stamp set to stamp the sentiment Hello onto Naturals Ivory cardstock and punched it out using the Decorative Label punch and sponged the edges using the same colour ink.
|Calypso Coral & Soft Sky|
I attached the sentiment to a piece of Designer Series paper to make a belly band to secure the notebook.
|Pistachio Pudding & Melon Mambo|
|Strawberry Slush & Bermuda Bay|
I had a great weekend and here is a picture of me (2nd from the right) and my table mates (left to right, Tracy, Baz, Yvonne & Sasha). We had such a great time and I am glad I got to know these lovely ladies over the weekend.
Here is a picture of the amazing swaps I received from my fellow Pinkies. What a talented bunch of ladies!
I love to make & receive swaps and take the opportunity to look through my swaps every month or so to help inspire me to use different colour combinations and techniques. From 4 events I have attended since I became an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I now have over 125 swaps!
The Stampin' Up! regional event is fast approaching so next month I will be making 50 - 75 swaps to take with me. Subscribe to my blog to make sure you find out what swaps I've made & received!
