There are 8 of we Think Inkers (including our lovely guests) heading along to the Stampin' Up Convention this year. Actually we are there right now having a marvellous time no doubt. I preprogrammed my blog to show you a few things while I'm away. (Wish I could preprogram my house to tidy itself up while I'm away, or the bod to get itself fit while I took a nap. ☺)
This year I thought I'd make little 'Convention Emergency Kits' for my team.
I had fun putting them together. I used some of my favourite supplies - Big Shot Top Note, Very Vintage Wheel, Vintage Vogue flowers, Rhinestone Brad, and Rich Razzleberry and Kraft cardstock. Yum!
Here's the contents .......
Some coffee bags (in case our motels have icky coffee!), emergency snack, bandaids, tissues and a Think Ink bag tag. We all get a convention bag and since there'll be about 500 identical bags there, a tag to attach comes in handy! Here's a closer look at the tags.
I used the accessories from the Tote-Ally Tess stamp set. (Pg 18, Autumn Mini.) Aren't they cute!
I'm finding the clear blocks super handy. I attached the 'I Love Stamps' and the little flower stamp to the block together and stamped them both at the same time. Might have only saved a minute but still - with all the things on our 'to do lists' these days, we'll take any time savers right!
Back over the next couple of days to show you the other projects that have been keeping me busy this last week or so - my swaps.
I so love the social part of swapping - it is a great way to meet other demonstrators and a fabulous way to generate lots of oohing and aahing and excitement at the start of the first day of convention. OK, put 500 mad keen Stampin' Up lovers into a room together and you possibly don't need any extra excitement - ☺
It is lovely to get such a range of great ideas back from all the swappers. I love sitting in my hotel room in my PJs checking out all the terrific creations at the end of the day.
Class/workshop ladies - I'll have heaps of new things to show you at our next gatherings.
See you tomorrow to share some more of my 2010 Convention swaps.
