Projects from the Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Tuesday, April 21, 2009
Note: This is my second post today, please scroll down to see the swaps that I brought home from the seminar!

Well, finally I managed to get some photos of the projects that Stampin' Up! provided to us to create during the seminar. I am really excited about these projects, because each one of them either used a product that I haven't used much before (Sizzix Big Shot or Chipboard) or an image that I don't use often (flowers) or a new trend that I have grown to really love (birds!) I think all 6 of these projects are great and I plan on using the excellent instruction sheets that were given to us to create all of these again!
So, here they are!This card uses a flower stamp that I normally wouldn't use, but it turned out so pretty! It also uses the Stampin' Up! AquaPainters and Watercolor paper, both of which, I have never used and now love! Isn't this card just pretty?This card is probably my favorite project from the seminar! Again, flowers that I would not have chosen myself, but really pretty! We used the Watercolor Crayons (again, a new relatively product for me, I've only used them once) and a misting bottle to create the effect on the flowers. On both of these cards, we distressed the edges, which I think really adds a nice touch!This project is a little treat box. I love the colors we used here! This was using the Sizzix Big Shot to cut and emboss the flower, then we sanded the flower to get the white edges. This little box also uses our new corduroy buttons which I have decided I need many, many more of!I didn't realize this shot was so blurry, I'll try to take another one soon, Sorry! This is an 8x8 scrapbook page, which is perfect for me, because the scrapbook that I "plan" on finishing for Bradley is an 8x8. I need to start it in order to finish it! I have a few pages done, I just haven't put photos on them yet! Not like I don't have enough photos, right? Ok, enough babbling! This one surprised me and my Mom.. neither of us knew that if we used a Stampin' Up! Craft pad to color the chipboard, that it would turn out this nicely! Now we are both ready to order lots more chipboard to play with!This little basket is so cute! I actually didn't get this finished until I got home, and somewhere along the way I lost the little DSP bands that were to go around it.. and my tag is different from everyone elses, as the sample was stamped and I used more Sizzix flowers on mine. This was the first time I used the Sizzix Big Shot, I have a Sizzix, but it's the old red one, this one is much nicer! And, Oh! The things you can do!Ok, I lied! THIS is my favorite project from the seminar! Only because I am huge into the birds trend right now! And I love these colors! This little gift card holder (as in actual cards for gifts, not gift certificate cards) is just adorable! And such a cute idea that I WILL be using this again! So, if you are coming to one of my upcoming workshops, be prepared to make one of these!
Here is a photo of how it lookes opened up and with the cards inside. We even used DSP to decorate the inside of the envelopes! What a cute idea!I hope you like the projects! I know I had a wonderful time making them and meeting all the amazing demonstrators at the seminar! I am definitely Convention-bound next year!

Oh! Almost forgot! I won a door prize! Yay! Check it out! Here's a photo of the stamp set that I won (Scene in a Garden) and the stamp set that we got for free with our attendance to the seminar (Best Wishes and More). I also won the flowers set (Soft Summer) that we used on the flower projects, but Mom really liked that set, so I gave it to her!Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
