Team Training

On Saturday we travelled to Amanda's Quarterly Team Meeting where over 30 of us got together to learn and be inspired!!  Of course we have lots of fun but also have some business talk too!

As you may know, we create "swaps" and swap with each other so that we come home with lots of inspiration and new ideas, here is my creation.

I used the lovely new Textured Embossing Folder called "Manhattan Flower", it is so simple to create such a beautiful background to your projects.

My stamps were "Four Frames" from the Mini Catalogue P.11 £15.95 Clear Mount or £19.95 Wood Mount and also "Clearly for You" from the Mini Catalogue P.22 £17.95 Clear Mount or £22.95 Wood Mount.

I used a colour combination of Sahara Sand, Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla and the Designer Series Paper is from "Springtime Vintage" which you will find in the Mini on Page 17 priced at £8.75 for 12 sheets of 12x12" Double Sided Paper!

The butterflies were created using one of the Embosslits Dies called "Beautiful Wings" priced at £10.50, which cuts and embosses at the same time.  These little beauties are absolutely gorgeous, so detailed and cute and cut out in no time at all using the Big Shot Machine.

I punched out my frame from "Four Frames" using the new "Decorative Label Punch" from the Mini Page 11, £15.50 and also the Perfect Plum label behind the Amour greeting is created using the same punch. 

The other punches used were the Scallop Trim Corner and Border and of course the Word Window which I used to punch out the "Amour" wording.

I received some lovely swaps in return and will be showing you these soon.

We had a fab day, albeit a long one and thanks go to Jane for driving us there and getting us home in one piece!
