Well one of the words I used to describe my experience at The European Convention in Mainz was 'Inspirational', and the projects on the display boards were incredible. I have managed to capture as many as I could but my camera battery and my memory card had other ideas!!
Here are couple of my favourites these designs particularly caught my eye and I will be taking inspiration from these beautiful projects.
The first is this lovely scrapbook layout- quite simple really, but simply stunning I think you will agree. I especially love the tone on tone of the background stamping that makes a large strong image look delicate and soft.
Daydream Medallions is the stamp set that features on the layout and this was one of the sets we received in our Convention Bag along with Affection Collection which is from the Autumn and Winter Catalogue available until the end of January. They were a perfect choice I love them both, so versatile!
My next photo is also created using the Daydream Medallions stamp set and I really adore the font too. This is another new one from the main 2012/13 catalogue called Notable Alphabet, and is on my wish list very near the top in fact, though that list is a long one, I have to confess. A lovely addition to our fonts stamps and good for any occasion, what do you think?
I am a total sucker for stationery and I always have a few notebooks on the go at once, so much so that I often forget which one has which list in it............! Neil always tries to convince me to 'write' all of my lists, ideas and notes into an APP on the IPad, but it really doesn't feel right to me, I love a pen and notepad, I'm just old fashioned I guess!
This last one is so pretty but I will need to cross another thing off my wish list in order to recreate this one. That Doily is so beautiful, maybe that should top my wish list......?? Time for the notebook again I think!
I will be back with some sneak peeks of my classes that will take place over the next few weeks, also the projects have been the focus of my recent Stampin' Up! parties, and some small inexpensive gift ideas that when perfectly packaged the Stampin' Up! way look a million dollars! With Christmas on the horizon we could all do with some help in the inexpensive gift giving I'm sure.
