Scrapbook & Papercraft Convention

Hi everyone,

I thought I would share some pictures from the Scrapbook & Papercraft convention in Brisbane. It was a fantastic weekend, I taught two classes for Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft and Scrapbooking Memories magazines. All the classes sold out!! I was so excited about that, they were such fantastic kits, thanks to my sponsors!!

Here is a picture of my Tutor display area. Trying to fill such a large wall with small cards is an enormous task, so this year I decided to have long strips of calico with huge bows at the top, I thought it turned out okay :-)

This is the beautiful kit sponsored by Kay's Company, GCD Studios which included a gorgeous 8x8in paper pad designed by Donna Salazar. We made five quick cards and there was so much left over to make a hundred more!

Here is a picture of the five cards, The aim of this class was to show my attendees how to make their own embellishments. You know when you make up a card and you haven't got the right ribbon or flower, well I got the chance to show these ladies that there is no more stressing, and how easy it is to just create your own to match perfectly!!

This picture shows the Stampin' Up! class goodies bag, it was jammed packed with yummy products, over $180 in value!!! The ladies were so happy, it brings a smile to my face just thinking of it.

Here are the two cards they made. I taught them a simple gesso technique that makes that stunning distress look, easy and very achievable whatever level of cardmaker you are.

I always love this show as it gives me the opportunity to catch up with wonderful friends and to make some new ones. I would love to thank my sponsors for your kindness, generosity and giving me the chance to teach with your wonderful products :-)

Thanks for stopping by
Cheers Jane
