Stamp Camp December 2008

On December 5th I attended a Stamp Camp with a group of 18 Stampin Up Demo's. Our Up-line Manager, Ngaire Anderson organised the event. Thank You Ngaire for organising the weekend. We had a busy couple of days stamping and making a number of projects. On the Friday night we made swaps that everyone had created for the occasion.

These are some of the make and takes. Mine is in the top left hand corner.

These are some more of the Make and Takes.

These two were made by my good friends Makeesha Byl and Jan White. Jan White's is a Credit Card Holder.

This is my Make and Take.

Stamps: SU Pick A Petal, Bodacious Bouquet, Stem Sayings
Card: Whisper White, Buckeroo Blue
Ink: Buckeroo Blue, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Mat Pack & Pieceing Tool, 1/8" Circle Punch, Soft Sky Double Stitched Ribbon, 1" Circle Punch, SU Chunky Glitter, Glue, Scissors, Sponge

I really loved this Notebook/Shopping List idea that Esther Whitmee brought as a Make & Take.

On Saturday, Ngaire invited Odette, Lynda Winfield, Pat Carr and myself to do a Workshop presentation.

Odette instructed us on the finer details of making a Mini Scrapbook Album. I used the SU Secret Garden Simply Scrappin Kit. I have not finished detailing the pages yet as I am undecided on the size of the photo's I will use.

These are the only pages I have completed. I really loved this project and how professional it looks, thank's to Odette's direction, and a little time and effort.

Linda Winfield presented the next workshop and wowed everyone with the Polished Stone Technique. This Technique is very effective and we made two fantastic cards.

Pat Carr presented a Punch Class. It was really fun and we all loved the characters we made, they are so cute.

I presented Fancy Folds as the last Workshop. We made a Pyramid Card and a Stand alone Pop Up card. I cased the Pyramid card from Stampowl's blog and must give her credit for this fold. I made a few different Pyramid cards for the ladies to see how they could be used.

This was the card everyone made.

Stamps: In The Stars
Card: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, River Rock, SU Ginger Blossom Designer Paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Ruby Red
Accessories: Large and Small Star Punches, Dimensionals, Scoring Tool

Christmas Card.

I used a paper clip to hold the cards together and did not stick the tape on the last side of the card so it could lay flat for posting as shown in this photo. If folded this way the card will fit into a C6 Medium envelope.

Baby Pyramid Card.
