Wow! I have just spent an amazing 5 days in Vienna with some wonderful people. Thank you so much to Stampin' Up! I haven't had chance to sort through my photos yet but believe me I have many to share. First though I will share with you some pics of the swaps I made for my fellow demonstrator achievers:
I hadn't quite finished my swaps before I left so here they are spread on the table in our room as I finished them off! Next a close up of the gifts inside the boxes - silver plated rings decorated with Stampin' Up! buttons and self adhesive pearls. I've been asked which glues I use and I can say they are not Stampin' Up! Please if you make these DON'T use a hot glue gun or super glue as they will dry and then simply snap off. I ordered some glue called 'glass, metal and more' off the Internet. I sanded the backs of the buttons and the top of the rings and removed the sticky from the back of the pearls before using the glue.
I made my boxes using Pool Party and Mocha Morning Designer Papers and the Decorative Label Punch. All wrapped up with some Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon.
The sentiment is from Oval All. It's one of my 'go to' sets. Of course I like to package things up a bit so:
Here are all 28 wrapped in Medium Cello Bags and ready to go! Do you like the chalkboard frame? It was one of my many gifts from Stampin' Up! on the trip. More about this one later. I'll just share you with a photo of part of the room, sorry suite (!) I shared with my down line Tracy:
And I have to show you the pillow gift I received on the first night too, so excited to get this:
A beautiful bag to match the cute clutch the trip itinerary arrived in, so funny seeing so many of us using the same bag each day!
Back with more tomorrow.
