SU! Convention 2005 - WOW!

I returned from Convention in Salt Lake City yesterday and all I can say is WOW! SU! has done it again - providing a professionally done, creatively planned, family atmosphere Convention for thousands of it's demonstrators. The swaps were fun and fabulous! Scroll down for samples of a few of the projects I made at Convention. I'll post some of the swaps I received soon!

Yet another project I made at the Stampin' Up! 2005 Convention last week. This is a pocket card made with a couple pieces of one of SU!"s NEW Pockets & Pieces Kits , as well as an embellishment from the NEW HodgePodge Hardware Kit. The shading on the gable green layer of card stock is done using a technique called "direct to paper". Contact me to book a workshop to learn this technique! Posted by Picasa
