Stampin' Up! came to town on the weekend. Yay!
It was the first ever 'Heartfelt Stampin' Event' in Australia and was a FUN, innovative and relaxed day of inspiration and ideas at Melbourne's Exhibition & Convention Centre.
We've had Regional demonstrator Training Days for about 6 years now, but this year Stampin' Up! decided to shake things up a bit and open it to all friends of SU: customers, demonstrators… anyone!
There were mirrored booths where we could watch amazing creations take shape before our eyes…
'Product Playground' (love that name!) where we could get our hands on some of the brand NEW yummy surprises coming to our catalogues….
And inspiration boards and stage presentations…

And all attendees got their hands on the brand NEW catalogues that will go live next month. You could hear the squeals of excitement!!!
This year I was invited to do one of the stage presentations… and I chose one of my all-time favourite topics: Packaging and Wrapping Ideas. I was VERY lucky to get my hands on some of the new products last week and spent time totally lost in my own little world, creating and crafting. And making a big mess!
Here's a little peek at one of my projects… will post more photos soon.

I'll talk more about the new goodies after 1st of September when both the new Annual Catalogue and festive Holiday Catalogue go live… but for now, a special thanks to all those who helped make the Melbourne 'Heartfelt Event' such a great day. And big inky hugs for my guests and stamp club friends who came along for the day. xx
