An entire day of stamping, crafting and hearing about or watching carfters. . . my definition of a good time! 55 of us gathered at the Sebel (Cairns International) on Saturday to take sneak peeks at the new catalogue, some terrific products and a heap of different techniques.
Staff from head office showed off their crafting skills: sewing, wheeling and playing with large cutlery were just some of the skills we enjoyed. The new fabrics about to be released in Australia by Stampin' Up! are beautiful and will prove a versatile product for card makers, scrap bookers and quilters. I can wait to be able to buy the full selection.
There were plenty of give aways on the day - vanilla smooch, champagne glass glitter and yet to be released stamp sets! Yay! I think that everyone was happy with their stash at the end of the day. The make and takes were very cute and it was exciting to see the different spin people put on the same card creations.
It was nice to chat with people who only gather together once a year. A lot of people travelled from afar to attend the event and it shows their love of the product and their joy in sharing it with others who love what they do and share what they love. . .
Watch this space - photos to come tomorrow. . .
